Rainier looks good.  Why did he never remarry?
I recently read a really good book called "The Royal House of Monaco", all about the Grimaldis and their lives leading up to 1998. There was a short section about Rainier and possible remarriage to Princess Ira von Furstenberg- the two had been spending quite a lot of time together and the Monegasque government felt he needed to remarry to inject some glitz back into Monaco [which is why he married Grace Kelly in the first place]. Just as Rainier and Ira's relationship was getting serious, Ira's son, Christoff, told a Parisian magazine that his mother and Rainier would definitely be marrying within a year. The Palace in Monaco was extremely upset, denounced that allegation, and issued a statement saying that Rainier would "absolutely not" remarry. Princess Ira was really upset too, but the couple drifted apart, and to my knowledge, Rainier hasn't been seen with another woman since. :(
Poor guy. He does look good now, doesn't he?

Thanks for the pictures, Dennism! They were great!

@kittencrews, You're right, Caroline DOES love her black and white. She's been wearing so much of it!
You`re welcome. It was a great night for Monaco soccer. Great photos and they showed the family on TV a couple of times. Charchar, if Monaco does indeed advance to the final, you can be sure that the family will be well-represented at that match.

Lena that picture is absolutely fabulous!!! They are all so excited, althought it doesn't look as if the owner is all that impressed....look at him (you can only see a small bit)...

Anyone know who the other young man is with Pierre and Andrea in the back row is? Friend or one of their stepbrothers?

Isn´t this a great one?!
...never seen Ernst so happy!!!!

I'm not sure if that guy beside Pierre is Max because it doesn't really look like him... but they aren't very good clear ones of him... hopefully there will be more!

Ernst...


There are also pictures on Corbis, IBL, and Brainpix

On IBL there are some great ones of the family walking across the field!!

Interesting that you should mention that...the "owner" is actually the owner of the other team, Chelsea, (and also the richest man in the UK) so it makes sense that he isn't too happy when the Grimaldis are celebrating. I have no idea why he is sitting with the Grimaldis, though - who knows, maybe he's a close friend of theirs.

Tomorrow May, 26th will be Monacos big day. The Champions League Soccer Final will take place in the AreanaAufSchalke in Gelsenkirchen/ Germany. Kick off is at 8.45 pm. CET.

Princess Stephanie and probably her children will join the AS Monaco Football Club Fans on their charter airplain from Nice to Köln/Bonn and in the bus to the stadium where she will also be on the tribunes with them.
Albert, Rainier, Caroline, Ernst and the kids will be in the stadium as well ( that's for sure). Stephanie is occupied with supporting the ASM FC fan-group in supporting the team.

The imoprtance of that match is as high as it can be. For those who are from the U.S. .....soccer is Europs true passion.....

So here's your opportunity to wish the AS Monaco FC team luck...and say whatever you want to say....

I'll be in the Arena myself on wednesday night along with my brother and boyfriend....

So lets root and pray for the Red-and-White-boys to win this game.....

P.S. Links to pics from the event will certainly be posted afterwords....

Have a good game.......

Even if I'm a fan of Lyon's team, the Olympique Lyonnais, who won the french championship, I really hope that Monaco will win the Champions League! Go on, Monaco!

Allez Monaco! That´s great that Morientes is healed in time after that injury against Rennes. It is truly the match of the underdogs. Nobody could have expected this match for the Champions League Final except for the fans of the teams of course. Monaco will be playing Porto who is a great team but who I have seen participating in some diving, rough tackling and cycnical play throughout this competition.. We boo such teams. Anyway, they won the European Champions Cup(Old name) in 1987. The problem with that sucess of these two teams is that most of the best players are going to be tempted away by more money and glory. So this may be the last chance to see these players together for Monaco and Porto. This is at least ironic because France has had two teams in the finals of the European-wide competition this year and possesses the best national team in Europe. Yet, France is a relatively "poor" domestic league. Relatively poor in monetary value but not in quality of the players. Anyway, here are two articles with more information for anybody who wants to know more:

Allez les Rouges et Blancs!
