I agree there. Grace, Charlotte, Caroline, will always carry themselves with class, and it probably goes back to Grace's ancestors and is something you can't lose. My friends who rebelled against the constraints of their upbreeding can't shake off their aura of refinement.
Looking at photos of women, taken up to the sixties or so, it seems that that polish was de rigueur. (If you watch Mad Men, you see what I mean).
I was also thinking of words that are so contextual : "gentle" for example. How many of us are gentle in one situation and not so gentle in others? Charlotte always seems very gentle (but who knows?), and Princess Mathilde seems to have a true gentle personality, which gives her that luminosity that 's all hers.

Charlotte's face looks like a clone of young Caroline's face here:

^You're so true! It even disturbed me, at the beginning!
In this one, too, there is something of Caroline in Charlotte's smile: Amfar Gala 2011 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Based solely on pictures one cannot say whether those women are gentle or not. The are polished, glamourous,stylish,and maybe gentle, too.
As far as looks are concened, my favouite one was, is, and will alwas be PC.
Then Grace, and then Charlotte.

Well, I don't know where exactly to put this one but this thread comes the closest. Prince Louis, the father of Prince Rainier and Prince Albert look so much alike.

Albert
Louis

FYI,Prince Louis was Rainier's grandfather, but this is a picture of Prince Pierre who was Rainier's father and yes there is a resemblance between Pierre and Albert.

Oh gosh.. in the 1st picture Albert looks like.. Charlene.

As for Grace Kelly, well, if someone told me that Gwyneth Paltrow is her daughter, i would believe it. She could def play her in a movie. The resemble is unbelievable for me. They're both so delicate & like swans.

I'd say she has her mother's and sister's posture of the head...

I'm afraid the "Ernst" mouth cannot be denied - much as one would want to!

I see, Caroline als young girl - and Charlotte today. Is one face !
Caroline has many luck with your children from casiraghi. The youngest child Alexandra is not so
beautyful.

Caroline

Charlotte

Princess Caroline Charlotte is something cleverer than that age.

Hello
From www.hola.com, a very interesting photo comparison between the Stefano+Caroline and their 3 children striking ressemblance!

^Thank you so much!! Very interesting gallery, I loved watching at the pics.
There is a BIG mistake in the last pic: it's not Beatrice Borromeo but ex-Mrs Scrimgeour. Hola should have worked more seriously!
On the first pic, Caroline looks a lot like Charlotte (picture in the left). It's funny that they share the same face, and there the look alike is more obvious because of Caroline's grumpy look!
However, nothing about Andrea? The pics are focussed on Charlotte and Pierre, but Andrea looks like his father so much!

I agree with LovelyKate.
On th other hand, i think that the 3 of the Trio looks so much alike Stefano. They all have this italian looks on thei faces that they of course inherited from their father. Even Charlotte, who sometimes and in some angles, looks like her mother. But she is not a "clone" of her.
