In 1970 Paola's children were the King's nephews. Now the children going to school are the King's grandchildren.

Princess Paola was very beautiful and elegant. The photo is so amazing!

Young Prince Albert and Princess Paola were having lunch in the garden on Volcano island off the northern coast of Sicily:

Question: Paola & grace

Hello everyone! My friend Carol and I are trying to find out whether or not Princess Grace attended the wedding of Paola and Albert in Brussels in 1959. Does anyone know? If she did, does anyone have a photo(s)? We would also love to see any other photos of Grace and Paola together. THANKS!

I'm pretty sure that Princess Grace of Monaco didn't attend the wedding of Prince Albert and Princess Paola of Liège on July 2nd, 1959 since this marriage wasn't considered as important as e.g. the wedding of King Baudouin and Queen Fabiola in 1960. Back then, nobody could have guessed Albert's and Paola's destiny -becoming King and Queen of the Belgians themselves later on...

Can anyone tell me between what dates Paola and Albert were separated?
And where they lived during that time?
I'm glad to see them show the true love they feel for each other, by the relaxed way they do :)

The 2012 christmas card of Albert and Paola is so wonderful. At the backside all her grandchildren are at with several pictures together with the Royal Couple.

Cute card - thanks for mentioning it everyone!
I wonder who won the Boule game - nice idea to insert 2013 this way, it looks amateurish enough to think it was photoshopped by King Albert himself.

I am captivated, too, favouring the shots of Princess Laetitia Maria stroking a cat, of Prince Emmanuel decorated with plants and of Princess Elisabeth painting ! E. & E. obviously have these likings viz. hobbies in common with their grandmother, Queen Paola, who is assuredly an excellent teacher for her granddaughter...
