Prince Rainier had one of the largest stamp collections in the world, so I thought it would be interesting to post pictures of stamps from Monaco in which members of the Grimaldi family appear.


Prince Rainier III

The wedding of Grace Kelly & Rainier Of Monaco

Princess Grace

Princess Caroline

Prince Albert II

Princess Stephanie

There is a site that has many of the stamps of Monaco I just don't recall the name at the moment to post it will look or perhaps someone else might recall it.

The stamp of Caroline's birth doesn't show very accurately Princess Grace. Glad you liked the topic :)

I think your right. Her profile seems a little off.
Her cheekbones don't seem high enough.
Either way it's a wonderful stamp & thank you for sharing!

Indeed it's a beautiful stamp which was inspired by the Karsh photo of Princess Grace shortly after she got married. I'm glad you liked it

The stamp of princess Stephanie is rather odd. I'm surprised at her hairstyle in it :)

It shows her attending 1999's Red Cross Ball, but I somehow don't like how they depicted her facial expression.
