I like Caroline's appearance: the dress, the shoes make her look very classy. She's still a stunning woman! And what a beautiful smile!!

Those shoes are crazy! I love the blue color on her, though!

Is she there to help with the transition for Charlene, maybe helping to train her and introduce her to any connections she needs on various charities and other "first lady" obligations? I can't imagine that PA's absence is due to anything more than official obligations.

IMO Princess Caroline has been raised with a strong sense of duty,stronger than her siblings, perhaps because of being the first born child....

Caroline is a truly stunning woman!
And inspite of the ups and down in her private life, she to me, represents an essence of Monaco. More so than her siblings.
As beautiful and elegant was the wedding the gossip turned the whole thing into a tacky farce!
Caroline, however, has always come up, come back, smelling like a rose!
The same can't be said for Albert and Stephanie.
Time will tell for Princess Charlene....

Perhaps this is so because of the death of her mother. When Princess Grace died, Caroline stepped into her mothers shoes and this changed Caroline's life. She took upon her mother's role and worked very hard at it. Also Prince Raininer relied heavily upon Caroline to complete cultural projects that Grace had not finished.

Princess Caroline seems to have a fascination with the colour blue this summer for her dress code

Lovely, as always, is Princess Caroline of Hanover.

By the way, for those wishing to know more about her, I suggest taking a moment and reading all the threads here at TRF dedicated to Caroline over the many years, as well as reading biographies about the House of Grimaldi, this is a good start. Even for those of us that have followed her since the mid-70's. It's always good to have one's mind refreshed. :)

By the way, dbarn67, thanks so very much for those links! What a pleasure to browse through them all, my favorite being the sumptuous Carriage of Monaco.

agogo Caroline was not only the Matriarch of the Family, but of the Monegasque Family also. Her commitment has been even more remarkable since she also had to build her own family, as well as having to weather the storms of two marriages ending in failure or death.

And that's why i always say that P. Caroline is an inspiration to life. Not just for the lives of anyone of us, but for Life itself...

There was a time I didn't care much for P.Caroline. Never have been able to figure out why, but there you are. Recently, after reading more about her and what she has done, she has moved up my list quite a bit. This woman has wethered a lot in her life and her remarkable ability to bounce back is truly admirable.

Vive la Caroline!

Vive la Caroline!
It really needs Caroline to allow an official biographer to tell her story - I think it would be a wonderful tale -a real mix of tragedy/frustration/fun & (increasingly )admiration.
