Iloveroyals, thanks so much for the interview!
I really enjoyed reading it.
In my opinion Caroline should give interviews more often as she turns out to be definetely nicer than she looks in the pics.

But now I realize it was a much shorter interview.
Is it all right if I give a summary of the rest of the interview ?
I don't know if this is a legal solution , but perhaps you could delete the portion already posted and then post another portion of the translation?

That'd be fine with me. Let's see what the moderators say.
I must say that I too, when I reread the interview, was surprised at how natural and unpretentious, and "young" she turned out to be. She seems so animated.
At any rate, I hope I can make a summary, because it continues to be really interesting, and she has a personality all her own, more complex and even contradictory than we thought : compassionate, intellectual, gregarious yet seeking solitude, clever, funny, astute, and mostly, seeking to live life "at full throttle".
Thank you all again !

First, I would like to congratulate Iloveroyals for the excellent translation which contains all the ideas of the interview that I read myself in June 1982.

Thanks mucho ! Do you also have the original interview ?
By the way, the reason I know it was a 1981 or 1982 interview is that she was already divorced but Princess Grace had not passed away yet. So we are probably talking about the same interview.
I also have the very first one she gave (either Jours de France or Match) when she was 16. Her mother was present and added her own comments.
And there is the one she gave when her children were little, describing the family routine.
I wish there was a way we could share all this and remain within the legal bounds.

Yes, I could learn how to do that, but as Elsepth observed, there may be restrictions there too.
Could the moderators tell me what I can do (like erase the first segments?)

Could you tell us please when (what minute and second mark?) , in the streaming video, Caroline appears to talk? I tried using the video slider to go to where I thought she'd be, but I kept missing her. Thanks so much!

Afraid I can't, sorry. The French, & her dialect (of it) went right by me.

She is talking about someone - I don't know who - boy, I'm not a big help!
She looks really tired and older - no make-up - she sounds weary.

I also thought Caroline looked not her best here.

Very haggard, care-worn, and older than her real age.

This is just my opinion.

Princess Caroline is talking about the former (deceased ?) vice-president of l'AMADE, Jacques Danois (sp ? Donois ?). She starts out by saying that he couldn't sit still, and explains that she does not mean by that that he was unfocused, but that nothing for him was ever completed, won, that there was always another fight to embrace. It was a joy being with him, working with him, because he was so rich as a human being and kept those around him always attentive, on the alert, always awake. He never stopped being interested in new ventures, was always cheerful, with keen intelligence. He remains an example, a model to follow.

I had some trouble registering to get the link from the Centre de Presse, so I registered twice, just to make sure, and both times it ended up in my spam box (as often happens whenever images are being sent, for those who are not aware of this.) Fortunately, I didn't empty out my spam box without looking , though expecting the usual trash...

Princess Caroline did seem tired, searching for her words, but that may be her perfectionism at play here. I have always noticed that she lends much importance to her choice of words, her phrasing. She never seems in a hurry to make a point, preferring to get it just right. Perhaps, to an American audience used to the quick pace of programs like "The View", it may be slow, but she is making a public statement honoring an official. She still has that beautiful smile, which she uses sparingly and almost to punctuate her utterances, an interesting trick if that's what it is, or indiosyncrasy, for I don't mean to belittle it.

Her enumeration of qualities of M. Do(a)nois (sp?) is an interesting reflection of the qualities she admires in people, the people she likes to be around and who influence and motivate her in her own work.

This is very, very helpful! Thanks, for the synopsis, iloveroyals

Abbie, you are very welcome. The anchorman is very difficult to understand (it occurred to me I should go back to France more often, I am losing my ability to understand my native language), he speaks too fast and garbles his words. I was reassured that the woman commentator following him had a very clear and perfect enunciation, as any TV professional should. So Princess Caroline was indeed speaking about Jacques Danois, who had just passed away. They were announcing a longer interview (or was it a longer tribute ) in another half-hour, but I don't know how you can get that.

Did you notice that Princess Caroline appeared in a few second segment, just before the interview, attending a Lanvin collection, to honor, and again I didn't catch the name. I assume it must be the Lanvin designer. She certainly looked more glamorous for that event. I wonder if both events took place on the same day.

I also wondered something. Does Princess Caroline have a tendency to stutter, like her brother ? Is it something that runs in families ? Or is it, again, just an idiosyncrasy to repeat a word or a consonant or syllable as you search in your head for the best way to phrase something ?

^ I doubt the slutter thing. Sluttering often comes from shyness, low self-confidence or some (social) fears, and people tend to have it from childhood. I'm pretty sure Princess Caroline is trying to make her speech much more eloquent and proper by using the right words. IMO, it's just the way she speaks.
