That certainly explains why she is more lenient about her children. But then if Andrea is to be a direct heir, would she let him live with a girl without marrying her to be sure they were right together?

Thanks a lot for the latest installments, tbhrc! :) I haven't read this book yet (so hard to find good titles on where I live) and I always wanted to, since this is the only book authorized by the family.

These Caroline quotes certainly are consistent with the Caroline who is very easygoing towards her Casiraghi trio... letting them a free rein with their relationships (felix and tatiana). I think Caroline is giving her kids the freedom she wished she had had herself.

Albert on Caroline when they were younger
Albert feels that being e middle child was not always difficult, especially as Stephanie was so much younger.
But he says that Caroline was pretty bossy and pretty independent.
‘I went along with it for a while. Sure she annoyed me a few times when we were kids. Sure we used to fight. All brothers and sisters do. But when I was about 11 or 12, I was taking judo lessons. Once when she was harassing me I did a hip movement and threw her on to the floor. Ever since then we’ve had a good rapport.’ Caroline remembers the event well. ‘I certainly do
Caroline on Albert and Stephanie
We’ve always been a very close family and I was especially close to Albert because we’re only a year apart. The thing was that he and I used to fight like cats and dogs while we were growing up. I mean we’d fight with the determined intention of causing vast amounts of pain. Well that day, just because he’d been taking judo lessons, he threw me on the floor so hard I knew that was the end of that. There could be no more picking on baby brother.’
As for Stephanie, ‘ There’s eight years difference between us so I guess I always felt responsible for her. I guess I was always playing the older sister. I baby sat for her and watched out for her.’
Caroline on realizing they were not like other Children
I was maybe 14. It wasn’t a complete shock finding out that we were different from other kids because we’d sort of gotten used to certain things, like people taking our picture all the time. But that’s when I when I started to see there were a lot of things my friends could do that we weren’t allowed to do. Our parents were very strict with us. We weren’t allowed to go to the beach everyday. They wanted us to stay home and read and take our school work seriously. We had to dress properly all the time. My mother didn’t want me to were a two-piece bathing suit when I was a teenager. She thought it would be more proper if I wore a one piece even thought other girls my age were wearing bikinis. Like I said, mommy and daddy were very strict with us. We had to have somebody walk us to school and back. We couldn’t just hang out with the kids. We didn’t understand it then and I’m not sure I understand al of it now. I’m not sure all of it was necessary.
Caroline and Albert on Stephanie
Caroline and Albert both contend that, of the tree Grimaldi children, the one who got away with the most was Stephanie .
Being seven years younger than her brother and eight years younger than her sister, they claim that Stephanie was always the baby in the family and that generally meant she was the one who could do what the other two couldn’t. Being freer than they were to bring friends home with her is just one example. Says Albert, ‘Stephanie learned very quickly how to wrap my mom around her little finger. And probably my father even more so than my mother. But don’t tell him that.’
‘ I played with Stephanie a lot when we were kids,’ Albert begins. ‘ probably because I love younger kids and even at that age I was kind of fascinated by this little baby in the family. So we always got along great. We’ve always had a good relationship.
