Gisele Pascal

I didn't know where to post my question about this woman so I did it here. Does anybody know where Gisele Pascal met Rainier? I only know they were togheter about six years but that's it. I also read that they broke up because she wasn't fertile so she couldn't be able to have an heir, even though she had a daughter lately with Raymond Peregrin.

If anyone can give some information of her relationship with Rainier, It'll be very apreciated.

Thanks in advance

According to Jeffrey Robinson in his book "Rainier & Grace" they met when Rainier was a student at Montpellier. She was an actress doing a play there. Robinson states ".. they sailed together in the summer & skied together in the winter." Robinson goes on to dismiss the rumours she was infertile & quotes Rainier as saying "We were together 6 years & it was fine while it lasted but I think we both felt it was long enough. It was a love affair that had come to its own end. I don't think there were any real intention on either side to get married. As long as things were good they were fine just as they were. Then it simply ended."
Robinson then notes that Gisele went on to marry & have a child,thus proving false the earlier accusations.
As for Rainier, well as we all know his future lay elsewhere.

What a marvelous tribute to this great, Prince, Man, Father and Grandfather. Somehow, his passing, has left a big gap in the princely world.

You could get it online from Amazon. It is available if you check out the site. I have another book which contains more information about Rainier & Gisele Pascal - "Once Upon a Time: The Story of Princess Grace, Prince Rainier & their Family" by J. Randy Taraborrelli. It's also available from Amazon. The author indicates thta Princess Antoinette was very much opposed to the actress & that Rainier was unhappy by Gisele's dedication to an acting/movie career. He also cites a personal friend of Gisele's,Maureen Molnar,as enabling him to uncover information about the romance.

Wow, I'll check Amazon then. Thank you very much for all the information. I oly found in the web that she was an actress and "the affair" she had with Rainier but what you give me was very helpful. I think it wasn't just an "affair" I mean, if they were together for 6 years it was a long term relatioship and a good one that it just came to it's end. Thank you very much again, Elly C

There was also Father Tucker who understood that this was not going to end in marriage. In his biography are letters which indicate that Father Tucker told her that it would not end in marriage. She is quoted as saying he was the one who sat her down and told her the truth. Father Tucker is also the one who helped arrange for Rainier to meet Grace.

That's very interesting Hibou - I have recently bought the Father Tucker biography & haven't got round to reading it yet. Thank you

Here are two wonderful photos of Prince Rainier, when I look at them, it seemed to me as if they were made a few minutes ago. I would say these photos are never out of time.

Prince Rainier was photograghed, sitting in Monte Carlo harbor and looking out over the harbour (1958).

I will not sugar coat anything because this did not end simply. Rainier was with Gisele for six years and she did expect marriage [as she had incrimnated her reputation for the fifties this was news] but he said she was infertile as he understood that she could not bring anything more to Monaco which needed and could be brought by way of an extraorodinary wife and consort. So he ended it. Rainier was a practical man.He wanted and did the best for Monaco always.The parting had more pain than they "just" ended it.However both went on to make and create successful families.

When I see Prince Rainier,I always think how intelligent he was by marrying Grace kelly,as he said she was a" perfect woman"and his best Ambassador.
