Thanks An Ard Ri for starting this thread, she always remained in he shadow.
I wonder how was the relationship between her and Antoinette, Rainier and Grace.
Did she attend their wedding ?

You're welcome,I'm not too sure about her relationship with the Princely Family as she died in Paris and was buried there and not in Monaco?

She was step grandmother to Rainier. I believe she had some relationship with Grace, having both been actresses at one time so had something in common. I don't think she had much of a relationship with Rainier or Antoinette. She did attend the 1956 wedding as the Dowager Princess.

I love this thread. The wives and mistresses of princes of Monaco is a topic I long to delve into. I am curious about the son of HONORÉ V who never married. The mysterious Oscar. Anyway, re: ghislaine, I don’t know that rainier and Antoinette maintained any substantial relationship with her. I have overlooked her because of that. But that is about to change!

Quote from Ghislaine de Monaco on the occasion of the Grace/Rainier wedding:

Quote:
Elle était blanche, blanche, impressionnante de blancheur
Translated: "She was white, white, impressively white!"

A little confused by Mme. Dommanget's "white, white, impressively white" accolade but holy cow...Grace Kelly was a gorgeous bride!

No wonder so many women have been trying (unsuccessfully imo) to duplicate her ever since.
