I don't see big resemblance between Grace on one and Caroline and Charlotte on the other side, but Caro and Char look so much alike: look at little Caroline, if Grace wasn't in the pic I'd think it was Charlotte:

I also think that Andrea is the one who resembles Grace the most:

Totally agree! I think Pierre looks the most like Stephano, although there are whispers of him in Andrea's expressions. Charlotte looks like a combo of her mother and grandmother - Princess Grace; all beautiful!!

You really think charlotte looks like to princess grace? .. she do looks like to her grandmother but it's not princess grace...it's princess charlotte..charlotte is the carbon copy of princess caroline and princess charlotte...

it's not against you horseygal but I can't get why every one want absolutely to find sth between charlotte and princess grace....or between princess grace and princess caroline...
The three of them are very beautyful...that's sure...but they are beauty in their own way...they have their personalities...

the next princess grace isn't born yet...(and i hope, it won't happen....i explain...grace was so loved, admired...it will be so awful and difficult to that child... people will always compare the two of them...) do you imagine? people will want that child to be as "perfect" as princess grace...( i don't know if you see what i mean)...

i remember reading somewhere that princess caroline didn't named charlotte after grace justly ( i don't remember the word sorry) because of that...how hard it would be to succeed to princess grace...so she decided to name the litte girl charlotte...

Your English is fine, and I understand your points of view perfectly. I agree that there is probably a "romantic" notion where people see hints of Princess Grace in Charlotte's looks (I don't think that Princess Caroline looked like her, exactly - more a combination of Prince Rainier and Princess Grace; Prince Albert looks more like Princess Grace). I also see your point about a child being named after or strongly compared to Princess Grace would face a lot of pressure, and it has been smart of Princess Caroline not to make her children princes or princesses, and to remove them from the limelight so they had a normal childhood.

Maybe Charlotte's daughter will name after Grace, who knows..but to resemble Grace's look...I think she needs to marry an American or pure British (not Alex eventhough he is a British guy)..then her daughter's hair will be blond and not brunette..

I think I'm the only one, but I always saw a strong resemblance between Caroline and Grace, especially when Caro was a teen (then she partially grew out of it, so to say), but I don't see any resemblance between Char and Grace, because as much as Char and Caro seem sometimes sisters, I see also a lot of Stefano in his daughter. Pierre is definitely his father son, while Andrea, who was the spitting image of his father when he was little, now also reminds me a bit of a young Albert.

I completely agree with you on every point. The American press, as Caroline was growing up, frequently remarked on her resemblance to Grace (though of course, Grace being their american princess, they would be looking to see her looks passed on :) , but I also think they were right). I think she grew out of it in her late teens because she finally lost the last of the puppy fat in her face. Some photos of her as a young girl showed a noticable resemblance, both of them with their strongly chiseled features, almost identical small noses, ways of holding their heads, and often their smiles. Caroline also clearly inherited her mother's artistic eye, as well as her example, when it came to dress and styling.

To me, half the time Charlotte looks like her mother (mostly in her expressions, and of course her coloring and hair), half the time like Stefano. I see zero resemblance in Charlotte to Grace. The only similarity between them I see is due to the fact that they both have very even, lovely and symmetrical features, but these Charlotte got from her parents, not Grace.

Charlotte Casiraghi is his father daughter. I can see Stefano in her everytime.
Zero resemblance to Grace though. Albert looks like Grace, but the two sisters caroline and Stephanie ( and their offspring) have no resemblance to their mother.
IMO, the most beautiful is Caroline. I love her features , dark hair and blue eyes. She's the most perfect of them all.

Caroline (and therefore Charlotte who resembles her mother so unbelievably) looks much like her grandmother Charlotte. I have a picture of Charlotte sen. as a young woman, you can clearly see that Caroline has inherited much from her.

Sorry to deviate from the current discussion, but I am currently watching "Rear Window" on cable and, man, I see Charlotte in Grace. The tilt in the head, the mouth, the regal bearing ... it is striking especially since Charlotte is very Mediterranean and Grace was so patrician.

Charlotte totally has the same face shape and features of Grace except for the lips. It's a trip to see how much she looks like her grandmother...

I am trying, but I am not very successful at this. I wanted to show the three generations of the "Kelly girls" in one piece bathing suits, preferably black, which proved impossible, mostly because Charlotte wears mostly bikinis. I also wanted to show if and how their bodies changed in a similar way (the gene thing) but then Charlotte is too young. Here are the pictures, and some comments.

Grace in the purple bathing suit : age 45
Grace going down the stairs in a black bathing suit : 1980
Caroline in black bathing suit (cut low in front): age 34
Grace, Caroline (and Philippe), black bathing suits : 1978
Grace with patterned bathing suit : 1972 (can't find it anymore !)
Grace with Stephanie and Albert : circa 1975
Caroline in polka dot bikini the middle of her friends and with her cousin Grace Levine: age 15 and a half

I added one picture of Diana in a black one piece bathing suit for the following reason: it seems that the "aerobic" , working-out generation has really worked on their muscle tone !
Another observation : Caroline at 14 and 15 was taller and bigger boned than other girls her age. I think that is one major difference with her daughter, who is much narrower and smaller-boned. I think they are both gorgeous, but in different ways.
Also, as usual, Caroline always dominates any environment she happens to be in, which is not the case with Charlotte, who blends in more. (I don't mean to say she is any less beautiful, she just is not the Alpha girl her mother always was.)
I couldn't find a lot of pictures of Grace as a young woman in a bathing suit. That's why I put those pictures in the "shorts" category, for she sure didn't wear bikinis, but neither did she wear the modern cut one piece athletic looking bathing suit.

I remember Caroline saying in an interview that her mother wanted her and her siblings to excel in every sport, almost to a professional level. Well, Caroline, it sure paid off for you , for you have an amazing body, all honed and toned by all those sports and all that exercise which is obviously a way of life for you. Mama had it right, even if obviously she chose a different course in life and put that kind of "exercise is a religion" (I am quoting the title of the book Madona's trainer wrote) on the back burner of all her other obligations and interests.

I found 2 more I was missing. Caroline in 1991, black bathing suit, after Stefano's death, and Grace in about 1972, in a print motif bathing suit.

I very much agree with you.
I have always though that there were many pieces of Grace in Charlotte....
I think it's one of the reasons why Charlotte is so popular

Beauty of Monaco women

I think princes Albert and Andreas have the bigger ressemblance with Grace, when they were boys, before adquiring very masculine features. Caroline´s ressemblance with her paternal grandmother is big. The three of them: Grace, Caroline and Charlotte are perfect beauties, but Grace was the most perfect of them.

Again, don't get me wrong here - Charlotte is a very pretty young woman, but....I just don't see how she is ranked as one of Europe's top beauties. Alas, it's all in personal perception, one would suppose.

Who knows, perhaps she will develop more strikingly beautiful features as she matures?

In my opinion, it's Camille - Stephanie's youngest daughter, who is the 'one' to watch for. This little girl is going to be an absolute stunner!
I couldn't agree more! She's not very tall and has not the proportions to make her outstanding (long legs, nice shoulders and chest). Her shape goes more after her paternal grandmather rather than Princess Grace. She definitly will have to watch her weight in her later years.
You're right - Camille will be the stunner - a perfect mixture between Princess Grace and the striking features of Stephanie. Also the only blond of all the female grandchildren.
Compare her to cousin Alexandra and form your opinion - yes there's a justice

Wow, these are some pretty sexist remarks! Unless you look like Barbie with a specified height and body measurement one is unattractive? I think all three women are beautiful and have their own unique beauty in their own way! As it should be! Everyone has their own idea of beauty I guess? I think if there is beauty inside it usually shows through to the outside! I believe the reverse is also true!
