Your reasons for loving the Grimaldi's

My reasons are :

Stephanie : She is the most beautiful woman alive :p ( yes, yes ... I'll watch out.... ) She's outgoing, open-hearted, sweet, nice and gentle + a fascinating person

Caroline: She's elegant, glamourous, generous and she has a very cool family.

Albert: He's top, just top. He's a clever guy - funny and intelligent.

Andrea, Charlotte and Pierre, Ernstie and Chris: They inherited all the good and a charming appearance ...

Louis, Pauline and Camille and Alexandra: Cool kiddos ....


The whole family rocks the house :p

Hmmm...nice question Sebastian.

I like the Monacos because they don't display pretense. They exude compassion, genuineness, and approachability. Even though they must be driven crazy by the press and curious royal-watchers, they continue to live 'their' lives. They hold true to their convictions and passions all the while fulfilling their royal duties.

For me, it all started with Grace Kelly. Here was a well-to-do young woman who had to rebel against her family in order to follow her chosen career path. She created a life for herself when she could have just married well and lived a comfortable existence. Then once she had conquered the acting profession, she did it again. She created a different life for herself as Princess Grace of Monaco and as a mother. I think she was a fascinating person.

Then she and Prince Rainier had those three beautiful children... And I find it fascinating that Stephanie seems to mirror the young Grace Kelly, always striking out to find an identity. She is the rebel that Grace was. And Caroline seems to have picked up Grace's later, "royal" personality. Always presenting the correct image, appearances matter, etc... Interesting because it was that side of her mother that she rebelled against as a teen and young adult. I get the impression that she is more strict and judgemental in her dealings with her sister, though, than with her own children. I'm not sure who Albert is most like. I believe he spent most of his time with his father, if you can trust what you read. But he seems more sensitive than Prince Rainier, so perhaps he is a combination of the two.

Anyway, they are a charismatic bunch, including the new generation, so I don't see interest in them going away anytime soon!

Well mainly because there is hardly ever a dull moment with this family! But like others, it started when I found out about Grace Kelly and things went from there. As I was saying, the reason why i love this family is because of the never ending sagas!

They keep the news media busy. That family does not know the meaning of boring! They seem to be the Royal equivalent of what the Kennedy's are in the USA, something always happens that plasters their name on the news at any moment.

I like them because they are a beautiful family and caring people and I learned about Grace Kelly on tv and looked her up and been hooked on them since. Stephanie is my favorite always interesting she seems the least like a Princess you can tell she really cares.

I started liking and admiring Caro, and from her I started liking and being interested in the whole family, in particular Princess Grace (and Andrea lately...I'm a girl after all).
I like them because they are fascinating, for their looks and personalities, and they live rollercoaster lives.

Kisses

Well, besides all the things that were already said: we shared good times and bad times with them, shared their laughter and their tears, they all have become some kind of beloved family-members in some way :)

I couldn't agree more...when Prince Rainier died I felt almost as if I had lost an old nice uncle (well, not exactly, but sort of)

Yeah, it could almost sound weird, but when you read about some people constantly you start to feel for them, when they are happy or sad, and when they pass away you sort of miss them as if you knew them personally...plus this family has gone through so much, that you can't but wish them some happy times (and on top of that Ernst was very ill in those days, and that seemed really too much to bear for Caro).

Kisses

The reasons??? Many!!!

First the fairy tale, Grace & Rainier !!!!
Caroline, stunning !!! and now Charlotte !!!

Stéphanie, a poor girl, fitting to find hapiness, making wrong choices, a wonderful mother, so touchy, makes you feel affection for her !!!

Prince Rainier, close like an uncle !!

Grace Kelly, !!! A dream person, a dream who turned in nightmare!

Caroline and Stefano ? The absolute drama!

Young generation ???? Beauty, beauty & beauty again !!

Generally speaking, I think that we like the Monacos' because they are wonderful dream people, but in the meantime they are human !!! We all have been admiring them ! a beauty royal Caroline, a HRH!!!, ..... but we all have so much cried with them !!! we felt their hapiness and also their dramas. We wondered for mourning Caroline in the same way like we would have wonder for our sister or cousin ! And Prince Rainier's image, being destroyed by his wife's lost was into our hearts!
No one other royal family managed to be so close to the whole world like the Monaco's. Their life has been a long theatrical act, with all us being watching.
Hope that the representation will have a happy end !!!

I like them because I feel they seem "real" to me, not stuffy and uptight; they are not putting on a phony, controlled face for the public. When they have public duties, they relate to their public and show appreciation for them in one of the most positive ways - they put themselves among them, include them (National Day and Enthronment events are great examples). I grew up watching Grace Kelly movies, and adored her when I was young - she always "seemed" like a Princess, so I'm sure there was immediate warmth when Prince Rainier married her and introduced her to Monaco. I like that Prince Albert and Pss Caroline and Stephanie have the same frailties the rest of us do - no one is perfect, and I like that they are allowing their children to experience life as normal citizens and not trotting them out into the public like show pieces. Of all the "royal" familes, I feel the Grimaldis are the only ones worth knowing, if you ever had a chance - I bet they are a lot of fun off camera.
