Stefano was THE LOVE of her life. When you see her pictures during this period, she was not only beautiful (which she was of course before and after), but shd had always a kind of "light" around her, coming inside her, which was the proof of an absolute hapiness. I felt an explosion of feelings and adoration coming from her at this period. For she never recovered this "aura" and internal peace, even if she has been happy again. Of course her new husband and her kids gave her wonderful moments in her life, but after Stefano's death, something broke for ever.

I'm not saying the opposite , but I do think that Princess Grace was right when she chose Ernst of Hanover for a husband to Princess Caroline. There was something very blank about Stefano. For me he always seemed to be a cold person, unable to show feelings and he had these indifferent, dead eyes. While at the same Prince Ernst was a warm, radiant person, with a very positive appearance. Princess Alexandra has her dad's positive appearance.

Princess Grace did not know that Ernst would become an alcoholic with all the related problems.

What do you find so radiant and positive in EA's appearance? Is it his getting so drunk at the pre wedding party of the Prince of Asturias that he was unable to attend the actual wedding or perhaps his peeing on the Turkish pavilion at Expo, or his physical attacks on people, or his holidays to Thailand and Spain with women he is not married to? For most people these are not traits in a husband they would consider very desirable.

In what way did Grace chose Ernst as Caroline's husband? Grace died in 1982, almost 2 decades before Caroline married Ernst.

Grace supposedly used to browse the Almanach de Gotha and chose EA as an appropriate candidate for marriage for Caroline. Not sure if Grace ever met him in person.

Caroline knew Ernst since her 17ies, when she was living in London for her A levels. EA was livig in London also. They have met and being in commun cercles at this time. The rumor says that he was already attracted by her. So Pcs Grace, choose him (IF she did so) not really from a book, but among her daughter's cercle. He was not an uknown from a book!
And do not forget that very soon Philippe Junot arrived.. and Grace quickly abandoned her royal dreams.

Very touching and nice to see Caroline and Ernst August seemed to be very attracted to one another, not just the sordid mess that exists today.

Absolutely. An attraction existing for more than 25 years, destroyed by a bad habit.
Contrary to the most of the posters of TRF i personally believe than EA was a gond guy and husband, with a bad habit.
