Euh?Did you splash from the screens in ever having known him{"the guy" to quote you} at all personally par excellence yourself?Also I am glad to have read that you are the keys keeper to the underwear of the late Prince Rainier and his friendship/ involvement with Princess Ira Von Furstenburg.L'esprit de culotte?

I agree, she does! Picture # 9 - the eyes. Even the expression.

Camille has those same eyes. Very strong and passionate, almost smoldering with what lies beneath.

You're right, she does! What was it Princess Grace once said of Stephanie, that she was possibly or would be the most interesting of her children? (Something like that.) I do wonder if she would have thought that of Camille with regard to her grandchildren!

1) having charisma or not is a personal opinion. Mine is that Prince Rainier had many virtues but was a grey mouse in his appearance

2) I have no entrance to the underwear of Prince Rainier de Monaco or Princess Ira von Fürstenberg and I do not need to: their relationship is sufficiently documented and described, amongst others in the obituaries which appeared after the Prince's death in newspapers and on television

It is also sufficiently documented that they Prince Rainier & Princes Ira were and are distant cousins and I have grown not to believe what I read in newspapers or hear on television.Only they know what went on between them and discretion is the better part of valor as there was never an official palace announcement on their relationship.

Amazing photos! I'm so sad that Rainier is gone. He was so amazing for Monaco, and as someone born there, I think he was a truely amazing ruler. He completely revitalized and remade the tiny country, and put it on the map as one of the most magical places in the world. He is truely missed, and will always be loved.

In relation with Rainier,I am going to tell you the story (I think most people know)of his priest and confessor Frances Tucker, who recommended Rainier to marry Grace ,because he knew the kelly family of Philadelphia ,and they were a good family.

I read the story about how Rainier's priest and confessor, Frances Tucker who found Grace for Rainier and that Frances know Grace's family. Grace's family are Catholic. I think that's why Frances found Grace.
