So did you see it? I would have liked to, but my daughter was having a slow- speed-come-apart as I was trying to get dinner on the table.
I guess that is more important than the Grimaldi's!

Duh! I can read! I thought it was last night. Good thing I didn't waste time trying to find it!
and thank you , yes, my daughter is much better this morning. Being 7 is hard especially when your tired and overwhelmed with homework!

Since the show is on EST, it will be on at 5:00 my time, so I'll be able to see it before we go to back to school night! Yeah!
thanks!

I just viewed it. Repeat and old news -- not updated in a few years.

While they contain great information, the three specials that the Biography Channel and A&E run haven't been updated since around 1997. Its rather sad to see them "looking forward to the rest Rainier intends to build". They don't even have his funeral or Albert's ascension after nearly 20 months!

Was the memorial for the anniversary of Princess Grace's death a strictly private affair, without any publicity at all? I never saw anything of it on any news sites. IS this something the Grimaldis do every year or just at the big # anniversary, like 10 years, 20 years, 30 years, etc.?

The Grimaldi Dynasty special did have a few updates. It briefly touched bases on Albertís accession and his son, Alexandre. The special mentioned to date, PA is still not married. It cited PAís ideas being different from his father. PA is a liberal ruler versus his fatherís iron fist and tough persona who ruled Monaco.

PR along with his wife built Monaco. PA is more into erasing the bad publicity of Monacoís image as being a shady place for the rich and famous. PAís focus is on Monaco being a safe natural balanced environment for all. The special touched briefly on how PA was traveling to other countries to drum up tourism for revenue. However, analyst experts feel the direction PA wants to take his country will be very difficult and risky because of whom the country attracts. It is the rich high rollers who reside in Monaco because of the tax laws. It is the wealthy innovators who have other ideas of how Monaco should be developed and these are the people eventually PA will have to answer to. The special also stated PA is not into the glamour like his parents.

The special briefly mentioned PCís children, who are heirs, and the next generation of Monaco. They will bring back the glamour, glitter and luster that Monaco lost. The special stated PCís children are raised in the jet-set life style, they are intelligent, speak many different languages, have friends of rich and social standing. Her sons are handsome young men and her eldest daughter Charlotte is already Hollywood material. This is the type of glamour Monaco was built upon by PR and PG. The special also talked about PSís life style and her children. However, it was mainly focused on PR and PG lives together and their building of Monaco.

IMO, I thought the special was very interesting.

The patterned shirt she is wearing reminds me of the one she used to wear in her St. Remy / Vincent Lindon days. In fact, he wore it once as well, if I'm remembering correctly.

You're right RADKER. That is definately a Stephanie stance. I think her new short do is cute but the longer hair was prettier. As a woman, I can understand her wanting to cut it though. Taking care of long hair can be a pain in the butt.

She looks so much like Stephanie when she had her hair short like this, and you're right RADKER, a total Steph pose!

I like her new short hair too. Steph and Caro look very much the same these days. They have a very similar haircut and colour. Princess Caroline looks like she has lost some weight. She looks very thin. What do you think?
