Thank you the Divine Miss Julia for the pictures, The Monaco ladies are absolutely fabulous. I think they have all got Princess Grace's beauty. I hope you have a nice day, have fun and take care. B) :)

Hello Miss Lorissa!! How are you? You are so right that the Grimaldi women inherited Grace's good looks. Rainier was, in my opinion, a fairly nice looking man in his younger days and the genetic combination of Grimaldi and Kelly genes was obviously a successful one! Caroline, despite her faults, is a really striking and elegant woman. Charlotte is just like her mummy and Stephanie, if you look closely, resembles Grace quite a bit in some photos (expressions and so forth). I think of all Grace's grandchildren, to date, Alexandra may end up looking the most like her grandmum. I guess we will have to wait for Albie to get married to see what his kiddos look like! Gene hogs they are!!!

p.s. some more pics....

Thank you for the pictures Julia! It is absolutely unbelievable at times how much Charlotte resemles her great grandmother and her mother. :x :x :x

BTW, what is with the cheekbones in this family? Is that family trait ever going to miss a beat? .....those lucky Grimaldis.

Hi everyone! Here is a link to fantastic picture of Charlotte!

Great link, Jacqueline!! Thank you and how are you? Charlotte really does look like her namesake! And, yes, I think those disgustingly marvelous cheekbones run in the family!!

Some pics of Grace and Rainier together...I always thought they were a handsome couple!

Engagement party at the Waldorf-Astoria

Mademoiselle Charlotte is tres popular, Jacqueline!! Seems that teen-age girls all over the world want to dress like her, look like her and still be friends with her! There go those Grimaldi gals again! Another generation inspiring stylish trends! Thanks for the links, Jacqueline!
