He was an older, very handsome and "dangerous" man who paid attention to her. And it caused her parents a great deal of worry. It can be an attractive combination to the right kind of girl.

For an older man he was quite good looking and very charming. The bad ones often are. :p

I agree: Phillipe was the classic "charming rogue" guaranteed to sweep an impressionable young girl (as Caroline was at the time) off her feet. He was the antithesis of everything her parents, particularly Grace, wanted for their daughter and I'm sure Caroline was naive enough to think they would live happily ever after. I'm sure she really loved him and was devastated by their break-up. :(

What does he look like? I've never seen him...

older, handsome, dangerous, what more could she want at her age. Most girls usually have a moment in their lives that they are attracted to men complete opposite of themselves.

I'd not call him a hansome man, let's say he's charming instead. Surely more elegant than EA is. At least Junot could never have dreamed to urinate in public.:)

I agree completely with everything here, except the last line. It's more probable she
believed herself to be in love with him. She was infatuated, sure, no doubts there. Her head was turned, her ego was flattered, she was sexually attracted to him. But love? Real love like the kind she has for Ernst? No, no. But few people end up with their first. Some do, yes, but they are in the minority, I think. Most people, I think, including Caroline, have/had to grow a lot before "the real thing" is possible.

WHat I heard is that Caroline wanted to live with Philippe i.e. "live in sin" or was already doing that in Paris. Her parents, her mother in particular, were devout catholics and would have none of it. So the options were get married or leave him. Even though her parents did not think Phillipe was an ideal partner they preferred the marriage option.

Remember this was 1978, and the "living together" thing was practically unheard of among royalty- at least certain royal families. NOw it probably would not seem a big problem....

I think maybe you misunderstood slightly. It's not at all that Caroline blames Grace for marrying Junot. What people usually mean when they say that Caro married him "because of Grace," what they mean usually is that Caroline rebelled, that her marriage to Junot was part of her rebellion from a very strict upbringing. Her mother was very protective and a very overbearing figure in the lives of her children, because Grace loved her children and she wanted them to be happy and productive, what most loving mothers tend to want. Caroline was a young woman at the time and she wanted to be independent. Her head was turned by Junot, why not? He was a charming older man, he gave her attention, he flattered her budding sense of being a sexy woman. Do you see what I mean? So it's not about blame. It's just human nature.

In any event, I would say that Philippe has aged quite gracefully. I thought he was still married, but I could certainly be wrong.

Does anyone have any more background into this marriage and the ages of his children? Victoria appears to be about Charlotte's age doesnt she?

She's Danish and her full name is Nina Larsen, if I'm correct
Philippe and Nina have two other children: a boy and a girl.
