I believe that anyone going through a traumatic loss and / or grief is not thinking very clearly. The shocking circumstances around his death for Princess Caroline and the children are unimaginable. Alot of people bounce into relationships after a death/seperation/divorce. I know when I seen that funeral my heart went to Princess Caroline and her Children.

I'm sorry i made a spelling mistake. Caroline was seing with Vincent in March 1991 (not 1992, as I wrote) and this I m absolutely sure.
What I do not know is when and where they met. But meeting someone does not mean having a romantic affair.
I refuse to believe that Caroline being with Stefano, was "seing another man"
Firstly because she was fully in love with him, secondly because sge was in Monaco constantly with her official role and her kids and thirdly because paparazzis would not have miss her! They managed to find her in Galapagos with Guillermo Vilas, or years after in Thailand with Prince EA.

Actually, I still have magazines from that period and they are definitely from spring and summer 1991. Also, I was no longer living in France in 1992 and I remember the speculation in the press as to the nature of Caroline and Vincent's relationship while living there. It may not have been romantic so early but he was present in St. Remy often enough to cause discussion. There were even pictures, just before Caroline cut her hair short, of her wearing exactly the same shirt Lindon had been seen in - a dark blue Provençal print.

You are right that they already knew each other before Stefano died and I don't think there is any suggestion they were romantically involved before his death.

From my own point of view, I think Caroline was genuinely grief-stricken when widowed but also, life is for the living. Until very recently, she was certainly never a woman who seemed able to function without a romantic partner. I think Vincent London was there for her during a difficult period of her life and I liked how they seemed as a couple - I think he appealed to her more intellectual side.

It is true that we never saw pictures of them showing any feeling situation, they were just two good friends spending time in the countryside together with kids. But of course they had a relationship, otherwise what was Vincent doing with them?

Just because Caroline and Lindon were only first photographed together in 1992 does not preclude their involvement before that.

I distinctly remember reading about Vincent Lindon spending lots of time with the widow Caroline and her children in Provence only a few months after Stefano's death...in both the French, American and British gossip press. This was in the spring and summer of 1991. As Florestane has pointed out, Caroline was a very passionate young woman..in love with love apparently. Up until her marriage with Ernst-August, she was always linked romantically with a man since her late teens, always. She has changed and mellowed a great deal from those days.

I have always suspected that at least part of the reason she decamped to Provence from Monaco so soon after Stefano died was to grieve in peace...and to carry on with her private life away from gossip and prying eyes in Monaco.

For the record I do believe Caroline and Stefano loved one another but I have read enough about how they got together and Stefano's background to believe that it was not a fairy tale perfect marriage.

Moonmaidem, could you please, write some odetails about Stefano's background and their acqaintance?
Concerning Lindon, I remember after Stefano's death Caroline spent her first Christmas in Jamaica (not in the snow) with her children, Rainier and Stephanie. After New Year's eve she stayed alone with children and an old friend of hers: Robertino Rosselini. I had seen some pics of them in the mags. She was also involved with Robertino after her mother's death. Until then she was with Villas.

.

Posts that had no longer anything to do with Vincent Lindon have been moved to the Princess Caroline and husbands part II-thread, other posts have been moved to the General Questions and Information-thread.

To avoid confusion please try to stay on topic of each thread and before posting take a look at the variety of threads we already have - thank you!
