The only thing I know is that Elizabeth Ann is sometimes seen with Albert, Caroline, or Stephanie at various official functions and Balls.

I see that the youngest sister, Christine, died in 1989. Does anyone know how she died?

Thanks, monaco70s! Well, too bad Princess Antoinette and her children are not covered often at the press. I did read somewhere that Princess Antoinette has lots of pictures of Albert, Caroline, and Stephanie displayed at her home. That must mean something. :)

Yes, too bad about Baroness Christine - she died in 1989 and her YOB is 1951, so she was 38 years old when she died. I saw an old pic of them - Princess Antoinette and her children are all good-looking, too. Good family genes!

Great - I'm glad to hear that! I hope to see Princess Antoniette and family at PA II's enthronement.

My thanks as usual, Monaco70s! :)

Thanks, Ianna! Lovely pics!

Princess Antoinette seems to have mellowed down with age. It was said that she made life miserable for Princess Grace and even plotted to oust her brother. It's apparent that the family has made up and that she obviously gets along with all now. So sweet of Steph to hold her aunt's arm like that.

Very touching pics the last 2 added. I think Stephanie is kind of close to her because she's always next to her in functions. It was nice to see all the family together on Tuesday.

Does anyone think Rainier pressured his sister to marry in order to give her children legitimacy in case he would need them for heirs?

Antoinette married in 1951 and divorced in 1955--before Rainier wed Grace.

I found this nice picture from Point de Vue,
but I'm not quite sure when it was taken,
it's been at the flower-contest in the
late 80s..Maybe our experts know .. :)

Wow, that pic! It doesn't even look like Antoinette. She's so skinny there.
I wonder what year. Must have been 70s, judging from Caro's age. Can't have been 80s, you really think so?

I do not know the correct year, but that article said it was from the 80s. I'm sorry that I can't give you any better information..

I wish we could see more pics too of Caroline, Albert and Stephanie with their only surviving Kelly aunt, Lizanne Levine.

BTW, Antoinette's late daughter, Christine, was married to Wayne Knecht (they divorced though) who is actually a nephew of Princess Grace! Their son, Sebastien, is the extremely tall (even taller than Pierre and Ernst August as seen at Prince Rainier's funeral), good-looking guy seen and seated behind Pierre and Charlotte in Albert's enthronement. Obviously, Caroline, Albert and Stephanie should be very thankful to their mother's genes for their height!!!

According to Antoinette's son, Christian, in his book Palace, his mother was very pleased with her new son-in-law's relation with Princess Grace. And Grace's reaction? She was upset that Wayne did not cut his hair for the wedding (the 70's look, I suppose).

Thanks Roy for that information, I didn't know Christine's husband was related to Princess Grace's family. I believe Sebastien was also on the enthronement ceremonies too some weeks ago.
