Great find iceflower!

I didn't know Clinton had visited Monaco. Does anyone know if it an official State visit or did he just pop over from France?

Prince Albert with the actress Celest Holm, last saturday, in United States.

They were assisting to the 50th anniversay celebration of High Society movie production. (btw, I love Celest Holm's performance is this movie!).

I'm glad you liked it, Ann! Actually I'm not quite sure, the caption of the pic only says: "Prince Rainier and his son Albert receive Bill Clinton during his visit to Monaco on 17 October 2001". But I think that - as to the fact that Mr Clinton no longer was president at that time - such a visit can no longer be called an official state visit. I think only the leading representatives can make such visits.

It sounds like it was official as it could be for a visit by a former USA President.

Its interesting that Albert doesn't seem to have received too many foreign officials in his (albeit short) reign. Is it a sign that he's not considered that important in the grand layout of political power or because he is yet too new to scene?

Or maybe he's been spending too much time with his blondes?

Thanks for the rest of the information ice.

Ann

In the latter, Caroline does not look amused at President Reagan.

I wonder if he said something about Grace and it was still too early for Caroline?

Nice finds, Tosca !
Is the giant lady the Begum ? Why is she called the Begum ? Are there several Begums or just one ?

In the first picture, with Queen Fabiola, is Grace pregnant ? Her outfit reminds me of the blue suit Caroline wore at her third wedding, and it's kind of wide around the middle part, just as Caroline's suit was... Very similar...

Grace has such style ! Truly inimitable... I read that she liked to wear turbans and hats and chignons so she could appear to be taller than any other woman near her. It didn't work with the Begum !

I think the pic of Grace with Queen Fabiola is from Grace's 1969 visit to Belgium.

Thanks, iloveroyals!

The Begum ( I mean that giant lady) was a former Miss France named Yvette Labrousse. If I'm right, she worked as a shop assistant at the Galeries Lafayette in Paris, when she met the Aga Khan. I don't actually know if this was the same Aga Khan that had married Rita Hayworth.
Anyway Yvette became that Aga Khan's fourth wife, and she received the title of Begum. So there have been several Begums, including the present Aga Khan Karim's ex wives Lady Sarah Crocker Pole, known as Salima and Renate Thyssen-Henne known as Inaara.

Yvette was a steady presence at all events in Monaco, and according to the press, she was a good friend of Grace's.

Tosca, I found pictures of 2 begums, taken during the festivities surrounding Princess Caroline's first wedding. I see that Begum Yvette is often called (in Hola) la Begum madre. What is the equivalent of Begum in English ? Is it queen ? Does the Aga Khan have several begums at the same time or does he divorce one and marry another, which would explain why both begums would be present. If he divorces a begum, does she conserve her title ?
I did read that Yvette had a house in Cannes,and was a fixture of all galas at the time. But did she live with the Aga Khan ? I am still confused as what exactly a Begum is and why there were two at that gala. Thanks in advance for enlightening me !

I think it could be because Yvette was married to the older aga Khan I sure he died whislt married to her,
and the other one is married to the younger one , I could be wrong !

You become BEGUM when you marry the Agha Khan. Agha Khan is a title, not a name.
But I think you remain Begum, even if the Agha Khan dies. In the second picture, the young couple, is the actual Agha Khan, with his "then" Begum (I think it was Begum Salima). So if the actual Agha Khan, was already Agha Khan in these pictures, it means that the former Agha Khan, married with the older lady, was dead, but his widow, was still Begum.

No, Rita Hayworth married ALI Khan and not Agha Khan. Agha Khan is a title, and Rita's Hayworth husband called Ali Khan, was the son of the Agha Khan who married the Yvette and never become Agha Khan. I think it was Ali Khan's son who become, and still is the actual Agha Khan. Ali Khan's brother (from another mother) was Prince Saddrudin Khan, the famous ecologist, who died from cancer a couple of years before.
