My God -- imagine Caroline's stress level being pictured next to your middle-aged legend of a mother still looking like that ...

Thanks iceflower for that splendid pic.

This photo also shows that Caroline inherited her mother's spectacular bone structure. She may have her dark, Mediterranean Grimaldi features (not bad at all, to say the least), but what makes her spectacular is the Kelly facial structure.

Great photo! That looks like the dress that she wore to the nanny's wedding, I think it was 1991? Where she was pictured with the children and with Stefano's parents?

Placido reminds me of Vincent in this photo!

A little bit of gossip about these encounters. From "The Star", no less ! Needless to say, I don't know whether the information is true or not !

"The matching necklace, ring and earrrings that Caroline wore when dining with Charles, as shown in our cover photo, were bought for $2,200 from the Givenchy Boutique in Paris, and are aquamarine and crystal.
The silk organza dress, also from Givenchy, cost $1,200. New York shoppers can buy the same at Bergdorf's."

The Star article goes on to say that the event was the 50th gala celebrations of the charity fund-raising Variety International, to be attended also by Henry Kissinger, Cary Grant, and Roger Moore. But Caroline had planned to attend the function with Junot. And just 72 hours before the royal summit they were dancing into the dawn at a Paris disco. (...) In defiance, Caroline stayed in Paris until the last moment with Junot driving her to the airport. As a result, she arrived too late to escort Charles to their first function at the rooftop grill of Monaco's Hotel de Paris."

Now, I don't know if it is the same event, it seems to be because of the clothing described, but the story is so different, but back when Caroline gave interviews, this is her version : (a very rough translation, from "Elle", I believe):

"He came here for an event for the handicapped and the year of Childhood, and Albert and he and I had spent the day waterskiing, in the cold. It was Easter. At 5, we went home to change, we were soaked, my hair sticky with salt. The hairstylist was waiting for me to make me a chignon and put a ribbon matching my gown, a gown (makes a face)... Because I was not very interested in clothes, or only in what brand of jeans I wanted to buy, maman took care of me for all the big events... and she had chosen this gown (makes a face), like a stick of barley sugar, striped, pink-mauve, pale pink, white pink. I looked like a piece of candy in it with the matching ribbon in my hair (laughter) and my hair done, my make-up. They had put jewelry (gestures to show everywhere). (...) When I arrived in the hall in that get-up, Prince Charles said to me (in English) "My God, (reverts to French), whatever happened to you ? You look like a gift package!" I was so ashamed, so ashamed... (smiles)"

Iloveroyals I love your info on Caroline encounter with Prince Charles!
About the fact that she (caro) hated the dress is absolutely true, she did comment that she look like a candy box!!
About her fabulous matching neclace, ring and earrings, I don’t think they are from Givenchy, as they are not Jewelers, I think is Bulgari and it’s a gift from her parents when she made 18 years old (Caro wore it for the first time in RCB 1975) see pic (personally I thing this matching naclace BEAUTIFULL)
The day she wore the pink dress she never smiles, something unusual in Caroline!
But in the other encounter were she is wearing her red dress, she looks all smiles….
I remember that the press and everybody wanted to married Caroline and Charles… but they are so opposites it’s was mission impossible

You are most welcome, royrrules and lea
I had not thought about that dress before you've mentioned
it, lea, but now I also think that it could be the same dress
she wore again in 1991, so she kept it for more than 10 years

Yes, I think "The Star" got their stories (or encounters) a little bit mixed up, and I agree with you about the origin of the jewels. They must have figured, "Who will be able to sort it out from the United States?"
I want to post other pictures -- at least 3 encounters with Charles-- (and article and interview excerpts) but am having a bit of a problem. We'll try to put the pieces of the puzzle together ! The "parure" (necklace and earrings) is gorgeous !

I've always wondered if they have rooms dedicated to wardrobe storage at the palace. From the exhibition we know that Princess Grace kept her dresses, and we've seen Princess Caroline wear dresses more than once. But this was the first example I remember of her wearing a dress from that long a span of time. Maybe I shouldn't be surprised that they keep them, if they gave them away you might see them in the press. "Waitress wears Princess Caroline's gown to dinner party" or so the headlines might read. (Or worse..)

I've also wondered if we would ever see Princess Stephanie in one of her mother's gowns for a photo shoot to benefit her charity. But I don't know if they fit her, Princess Stephanie seems more muscular than her mother was.

I remember Princess Caroline both making fun of and incensed by the fact that she received mail from women asking her to give her her gala gowns or other clothing because "she would not be wearing them anymore".

Princess Stephanie wore a Dior gown her mother had worn, which had been refitted to fit her. I think it was during one of her first appearances at the Rose Ball or Red Cross Gala, when her mother was still alive. I am sure somebody must have the picture. Otherwise, I'll look for it and post it. It was a midlength white dress, very pretty.

I think that Stephanie's main reason for not wearing Grace's dresses is the vast differences in their taste level. Caroline has adopted her mother's classy, couture preferences. Stephanie chooses more daring/revealing and modern cuts that showcase her toned bod.

I also read that it was Caroline who took care of Grace's wardrobe when the latter passed away. And I believe that it was then when she truly appreciated her mother's sense of style, seeing all these dresses that stand the test of time and which led to Grace being named in the Best Dressed list for mostly all her life.

Gwen Robyns wrote in her biography on Grace that Caroline constantly borrowed Grace's clothes. And Grace, being sentimental with her possessions, would only lend them to Caroline and not give them totally.

Thank you all for your responses so very much! I enjoyed reading them.


On the matter of the dress - it is the dress I was thinking of! I pulled out an old Paris Match (It was a special issue called "Caroline Un An Apres") and she wore the dress to Eva's wedding and celebration which took place eleven months after the loss of Stefano. The children and Stefano's parents were at the celebration as well.

Great pics and info everyone! The dress u're talking about she also wore it to the opening of Princess Grace's floral collages in 1978 on a Paris Gallery.

Interesting to read more information from that event in 1977. She looked stunning imo.

In the US there are great journalist, the pink press in Europe usually get et all wrong, hola per instance... paris match is more trustworthy in this matters, it seems that it was the fist time that Pss caro met Prince charles and it was a great story...
Love so much the necklace I’ an posting a giant pic so that you can see the beautiful work!

LOOK at these earrings?! And to think - this was actually "the style" in the '80s!! It was hot and stylish then, laughable now....of course, she made it work and looks fabulous! But, I bet even she would get a chuckle out of this picture.

Thank you for the part of interview! Nowadays Caro's interviews are so rare and always about her charities that it's wonderful to read her talk about herself; she really is an interesting and complex person.

It's nice to see reportages back then..
