I am not even a religious person, so please you be careful with telling me about moral judgements.
I´m not telling you what to say. Everyone has the right to live the way they want to live, even if it is "not according to catholic moral", and still belong to the church and participate in it. You are no one to call her behaviour hypocrite.

At least she had the courage to fulfill her dreams and expectations of life. She took risks, she tried and failed. But she was always coherent in her attitudes and her believes and she always acted accordingly. I don't think God should asks us for much more... She always faced the consequences of her actions, never threw the towel and even her most difficult moments she found a way to carry on, and try again. If this isn't faith i don't know what it is. Religiouness is a much broader concept than a few human ( catholic or not ) rules determine. Besides, we can also see things from another perspective. Ok., P. Caroline broke a considering number of the Church ( remember she couldn't take the Holly Communion when she was married to Stefano although she kept going to the Church and had her, then « ilegitimate» children baptized ). Dosen't the monegasque Church and clergy adopt an hypocratic attitude towards her, when she's asked to attend masses, shake the Bisop's hand, or presides a jury in a «clerical» competition?

What's hypocritical is the Catholic Church looking the other way while many children are being molested by priests. What PC has done is trivial compared to that.

^And she hasn't even "done" anything wrong. I mean, divorce is just a part of life. It's a mistake. It's not good, but it's not a crime.

Oh, sure, a Catholic with the likes of Mel Gibson's confused brain will say divorce is a "sin" but that is just rubbish. I mean, even if it is a sin, it must also a "sin" to point a finger at someone and call them sinner. A "sin", whatever you will define it, is between a person and God (and that person's God is formed in a personal meaning too, not one idea of "man in the sky") and no one else. :)

I found that picture intriguing. I don't know how religious or spiritual Caroline and her family are.
My guess is that she kneeled or curtsied out of protocal to a Bishop or Arch Bishop, is that a Cardinal?
I'm Russian Orthodox, so I don't know Catholic rankings. Btw, for what it's worth divorce is acceptable in the Eastern Orthodox faith. As long as the Bishop of the Diocees gives the ok.

Aging. She hasn't aged good. Pity.
She looks quite good anyway.

Seems the same outfit she wore May 5th, as president of the jury that decided about chasubles, don't you think so?

I'm also afraid it is age and lifestyle, most unfortunately.
Oh, she was such a beauty!

Hi, Nathalie! Sorry, but I did not understand: she has not aged good but looks quite good?!? How come, what do you mean?

Yes, her face is not that good. I don't know why she "leaves" herself. I mean her face, because her body is quite good, from what i can see of course.

She is a 54 year old woman, so it is natural that she would start to show signs of aging. At least she hasn't felt the need to get herself "refreshed" during one of her holidays in Brazil.

Well an, we are talking about Caroline! She has something in her that, even without having aging so well, we can (or at least I) see her that she was once a very beautiful woman. And she has this class and aura, so special, that makes her look good, despite of not aging so well. I don't know if you understand me now?

Why the association between "refreshment" and Brasil? And, as far as I know, it was just one holiday in Rio, wasn't it?

Because of her high cheekbones, the sagging skin has thus created that crevice that gives the impression of a bruise or a dark discoloration.

It fascinates me that Princess Caroline has maintained her shoulder length hair. Many mature women opt for a shorter haircut that is easier to maintain and may be considered age-appropriate. But because of her hairstyle, Princess Caroline has still maintained that youthful energy in her look. The skin is less elastic; after all she's in her 50's. But because she has generally kept her hair in the same length (of course not counting her bout with alopecia and the shorter styles she tried in various times) and has kept it properly dyed in the medium to dark brown range, she succeeds in projecting a younger look. Her posture of course helps a lot too.

I know some women who are 55 even 60 years old and their face is really good for their age. It is not botox or some little refreshments of lifting and surgery that can make them look fine. It is how you take care of yourself and of course the habits you have in your daily life: smoking, drinking, eating non good foods etc.
Caro could look much better, but - taking into account the opposite side -she could have been worse.
