I think Stephanie looks like Prince Rainier but has Grace's mouth and expressions.

She really was a radiant ( young ) woman. No wonder, that in spite of everything, she keeps glowing and enchanting us all with her smile, today...

This is first child portrait of Psse Stephanie I have ever seen! So cute!

Three portraits in one, Princess Grace, 1973

Prince Rainier III, 1961

Prince Pierre of Monaco, 1964


Official webpage of painter (great collection of wonderful paintings )
Personally I really like these drawings because there is something truly natural yet modern about them.
The centerpiece of my liking is of course the Ralph Cowan painting of Grace.
Many thanks and congrats to all for all the fabulous shots and portraits.

In relation to this;

A contemplative looking Princess Stephanie walks past a sculpted portrait of her mother, Princess Grace after unveiling ceremonies at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery in Washington on October 15, 1986. The portrait head, in bronze on a wooden base, is the work of Dutch sculptor Kees Verkade. It was presented to the Smithsonian by Prince Rainier III of Monaco and his family, Princess Caroline, Princess Stephanie and Prince Albert. (UPI Photo/Doug Mills/Files)

I can't imagine Charlene sitting in the chair, with Albert behind. It's so weird.
I will have to wait to see it.
For now, thanks so much for the pics! They are precious!

A link to some wonderful portraits of Princess Charlotte - you can't help but do a double take & think you're looking at Caroline. ( There's a portrait of Antoinette too)
Princess with a past

Magnificent! She was as beautiful and regal as her grandaughter Caroline is. These Grimaldi women are of a unique kind...
