What do you think the next crown princess of Monaco will be like Diana (famewise not necessarily the identical issue), I think she will be subject to greater scrutiny, more intense paparazzi chase due the lack of a beatiful-international-romantic figure at the present moment, so what do you think?

Hi Tropicisland;

I know what you mean. It's an interesting question.

With the new breed of common brides for our CP's worldwide, there is an extreme lack of....how to put this tactfully....regal behaviour? Many of the brides of the last decade have been commoners, which is fine in itself provided you don't dig too far into their history. Drinking, drugs, mafia connections, pregnancy while single. It's getting a little too common, at least in my opinion.

My wish for Albert would be that he find someone royal and suitable, to himself and to Monaco. He has a few nice prospects if he were to take a serious look, including Princess Diane of Orleans - a spirited, fiesty woman, educated, easy on the eyes, and undoubtedly someone who would be able to set the bar for the others to meet.
A friend mentioned her to me a while back, and after doing some reading, I think she would be a wonderful choice. But, only Albert knows what he wants to do with this part of his life.

Does anyone know of, or has anyone seen, any of the new brides doing anything in the way of serious charity work? I'm speaking of the kind of thing that Diana was known for - supporting people, making appearances and motivating people? Helping to raise awareness?

I havent' really seen much activity from these women at all. Are they doing anything constructive with their time?

Bunky

Bunky, I completely agree with you. The mystique that is/was royalty is being quickly lost in my eyes. The challenge of modern monarchy has been to be seen to be modern but I really feel that they have gone too far. Very few of the new CPs are women I would want to be ruled by or whom I would admire or hold in esteem in anyway. Ulltimately that will eat at the legitimacy of the regimes.

I think the world needs another Grace not a new Diana. Grace always delt with her numerous personal and marital problems with dignity and, most importantly, with discreetly (sp).

Grace helped keep the mystic alive by leaving some things private Diana wanted everything public. Mystic...Mystic.......Mystic...this is necessary for royalty.

I don't mean to seem harsh or disrespectful I just simply think Grace was a true Princess if ever there was one. While I loved Diana I think she made many horrible lapses in judgement.

On a slightly off topic point - everyone says Diana was a commoner who married royalty....which is kinda accurate but neither The Lady Diana Spencer nor The Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon or even The Lady Alice Montague-Douglas-Scott were "ordinary commoners." They had titles, wealth, and much privledge. The Duchess of Kent was the first real commoner to marry into the British RF. Sarah Ferguson was the first commoner to marry a senior royal.

Moi, thinks if Albert marries his wife will be a media target on the same level as his mother, Diana and Rania.

I couldn't agree more!
Despite the fact that Grace had a "past" (mind you who wouldn't have wanted to sleep with Clark Gable ) once she married she was all class.

Even while she was an actress she was discreet about all her romances. She had such class and elegance. I know why Diana was so impressed by her but they were miles apart in life.

Grace was all class even before she became Princess of Monaco, IMO. It really wasn't until after her death that the public really began to know of Grace's relationships before Rainier. She had very intense relationships with some of the most high profile men of their time and it was all quite discreet. To keep such a thing to yourself and only have a select few know about it really requires a lot of intelligence and a great amount of discretion. She handled the situations in a very dignified manner and frankly that impresses me. So many people have romances and flings these days and everyone always knows about it. The amount of talk about someone's private life is what really can make it vulgar, IMO and Grace's was never like that .She didn't allow it to be. When her parents chose to name her Grace, they really got it right. She always handled herself with complete grace. A woman who definitely lived up to her namesake.

I have a hard time reconciling whether the "lady" should like being in the lime-light or a quietly confident retiring type of personality.

A very patient, compromising and understanding wife - as she would be sharing him with others ...

An individual who&#39;s thoughtful and considerate. One who loves kids and the process of raising them. An person who&#39;s strong enough to hold an opinion (and a background to hold the opinion). A supportive individual to the Prince and one that garners the support of the Principality.

A woman of the world and the core of the family.

I agree with you. I would add that she should have education and experience as Prince Albert has. A woman that would become his partner and would able to share his responsibilities.

I like that.
