I commend his charity work as I was a director of development and fundraising for non-profit organizations, and it is a very tough job. It definitely is not as glamourous as some people believe. You could work 60 hours a week, and then have to be "fresh" for an event when you just wanted to snap at anyone, and all because they associate you with that event or cause.
Even though my question doesn't have anything to do with Family Pictures this is a hot topic right now and I figured this thread would probably be the best place to get my answer.
Last night I was watching The Story of Grace Kelly and I have seen it many times before but I never noticed when "Rainier" and "Grace" are being interviewed after they announced their engagement one reporter asked "Is it true you will be the most titled woman in the world?" and Rainier answers "yes, with 52 titles" does anyone know these titles?? Thanks for the help! Also does anyone know how many titles Caroline has? I've only seen HSH Princess Caroline of Monaco and now HRH Caroline Princess of Hannover Duchess of Luneburg and Brunswick and Royal Princess of Great Britain.
Here are some. His full titles and styles are His Serene Highness Rainier III, Prince of Monaco, Duc de Valentinois, Marquis des Baux, Comte de Carlades, Baron de Buis, Seigneur de Saint-Rémy, Sire de Matignon, Comte de Thorigny, Baron de Saint-Lô, de la Luthumière et de Hambye, Duc d'Estouteville, de Mazarin et de Mayenne, Prince de Château-Porcien, Comte de Ferrette, de Belfort, de Thann et de Rosemont, Baron d'Altkirch, Seigneur d'Isenheim, Marquis de Chilly, Comte de Longjumeau, Baron de Massy, Marquis de Guiscard.
Okay, and I am not saying that at that time that is was not true the Princess Grace was the most titled woman of the world. I saw the movie too and remember that scene and was shocked because I had just read somewhere that it was now someone else.
@wittykitty... those pictures are quite old and they do seem to tolerate each other's company when around each other. in a vanity fair article last winter it said Caroline once said if Stephanie was attending one of the balls then she would not go...
@pigzilla yeah, I was just wondering what her titles were... that was 50 years ago, things change, she probably wouldn't be "the most titled woman in the world" anymore
kitten - I am like you, I was suprised that at one time though she was the most titled woman in the world. Still though the Grimaldis have quite an impressive list behind the sovereigns name.
I was watching some royal weekend marathon this week, and even though this is off topic, I was surprised that the Pope has the authority to give anyone a title. There was a woman on their who was a Princess because the Pope deemed her worthy enough of the title even though she had no "royal" blood and no place to "rule".
But back on topic, I would suppose that as Caroline and Stephanie have grown older, they have also grown wiser and their relationship has probably matured greatly from what it was in their younger days.
Thanks for the christmas photos too, andI laughed so hard when it was suggested if Ernst was santa.
A little while back we were talking about Caroline and Stephanie's dislike for one another and I came across this picture... I always wondered who Ernst, Caroline, and Albert were waving to... I assumed it was Andrea and Ernstie because they were at the match as well but I was wrong... see for yourself!!!!
