Hi Leyla,

What do you mean by "dodgy". My friends told me that to "dodge" is to avoid.

Thanks!

Philippe Delorme
Sorry... it's confusing to know which is the right spelling because so many different places on the internet and books have DeMassy or DeMassey or De Massy or De Massey... but it is De Massey for certain?

So, you saw his wife in Monaco? Do they live there? I saw a picture of her, and thought she was very pretty. I'm guessing that means Christian is talking to his mom now...

Hi guy's this is something I can post about, I read the Barons' book about 4/5 years ago he had a ghost writer help it was in the public library don't waste your own money buying it . I wasn't impressed he used his "conncections" to cash in he comes off in the book as really considers himself a famous royal and feels slighted and wishes he were the one to succeding his uncle and not Albert .
He comes off whinny, conceited rich brat with too much time and money on his hands ! He implies that Princess Grace was soooooooo close to him alot like her own son ! He mentions his mom and her 2nd husband were the ones responsible for plotting agaist Rainer (bad uncle who didn't appreciate his deeelitful nephew ) he dosen't understand why Caroline is no longer close to him(whine whine) he dosen't say much about Albert he includes pictures of himself posing with his smashed up (Farrari?) like who cares about him ???

Princess Antoinette biography

Antoinette Louise Alberte Suzanne Grimaldi, Princess of Monaco, Baroness de Massy, was born in Paris onDecember 28, 1920.


She is the elder sister of Prince Rainier III of Monaco. Her parents were Princess Charlotte of Monaco (née Charlotte Louise Juliette Louvet, a daughter of Prince Louis II of Monaco, born out of wedlock, who was legitimated by ordinance of Prince Albert I in 1919.), and Prince Pierre Marie Xavier Raphael Antoine Melchior Grimaldi (né de Polignac), Duke and Duchess of Valentinois.

Three children were born to Princess Antoinette and her lover Alexandre-Athanase Noghès, heir to a cigarette fortune: Elisabeth-Anne (1947.), Christian Louis (1949.), and Christine Alix (1951.-1989). The parents subsequently married in 1951; their children bear the title "Baron/Baroness de Massy". The couple divorced in 1954.

Her second husband, Jean-Charles Rey was married to her from 1961.

Her third husband was John Gilpin, a noted Britishballet dancer, whom she married in 1983 and who died two months later.

He attended Prince Rainier's funeral in Monaco. You can see a pic of him at the Mysterious Guy thread on the Princess Caroline subforum :)

Does someone know how she gets along with her nieces and nephew (Caroline, Stéphanie and Albert) ? And also how her children get along with them ?
I think that Antoinette didn't get along very much with Pricess Grace and that there was a kind of conflict at a time she wanted to take over Monaco and kind of plotted something with her first husband????

Some time ago we saw Antoniette with Stephanie a lot on functions and also with Albert. Her daughter, Elizabeth Ann usually joins her cousins on events and is Stephanie's christening godmother.

When she was interviewed 4 years ago in her house, you could see lots of pictures of Grace, Caroline, Stephanie, and Albert, family pictures.

All of her children and some of her grandchildren attended Rainier's funeral, even Christian de Massey.

Does anyone know how close Princess Antoinette is with Albert, Caroline and Staephanie? Also her children's relationship with the same? I think they are 6 Grimaldi cousins in all from that generation..... Albert, Caro, Steph, Buddy, Elisabeth, and Christine (who died already). I saw pics of Antoinette, Buddy Elisabeth, and Elisabeth's daughter Melanie during Prince Rainier's funeral. I also see pics of Antoinette and Elisabeth during the Rose ball, etc. But does anyone know if they are particularly close to each other?
