But I like the child in her in the second one, already so poised, so self-confident, with that beautiful "port-de tête" (head high above the shoulders) you are taught in ballet school. She looks a little tentative and stiff as if feeling the watchful eye of her ballet mistress, whereas in the third, she's all fluid and wave: of course the blue gown, all sinuous silk it seems, adds to that idea. She's obviously come into her own, at the height of her powers.
The first one is completely new to me and different. She looks the way I picture an Andalusian to look. She always has a way with shawls.







In the 3rd picture she was not pregnant with Andrea, this pic was taken in 1989 during the Red Cross Ball. She was 32 back then.

Here's a picture taken from TIME magazine in Aug 1987, when Caroline attended the Red Cross Ball and was eight month pregnant with Pierre:

In all the pictures taken during that event, she had a special look of utter serenity and a Mona Lisa kind of smile, as if she were very pleased with a private secret, which must have been her pregnancy, which by that time was certainly not a secret, but that's the impression she projects. I adore that series of pictures. It almost seems like it was the happiest times of her whole life. Not extraverted happiness, just very zen-like happiness. Thanks for posting, Tosca !

You're welcome, iloveroyals! And I totally agree with you, Caroline seems to be born to be a mother. In an article I read on CHI mag some years ago, Caroline was reported by a friend of her to have said that she enjoyed each of her pregnancies, and that she felt really beautiful each time she was expecting a baby.

Well, it shows. She glows internally if I may say so. I don't remember her laughing in that whole set of pictures, just smiling, and it was very becoming. Well, not to stretch an analogy too much, but she must have been in a continuous dialogue with her baby, communicating through waves, and that could be the origin of this beatific smile. You know, come to think of it, it is less Mona Lisa than all the Italain Renaissance Virgins in paintings. They all have that smile...

This is another picture of Caroline at that event. It occurred to me that she looks all the more like an Italian Renaissance Virgin as she is wearing blue, the color of the Virgin. Although, after doing some research, I found that she also resembles paintings of Marie-Madgadene. I guess it is the inescapable seductiveness in her, which is not exactly becoming in the representation of the Virgin !

Great photo Tosca! It reminds me of the photos of Charlotte on one of their ski vacations - when she was younger and her hair was about the same length. If I am remembering correctly she even had a shirt on with writing on it. I think both of them look great with that length of hair!

Caroline in a Renaissance style, or a la Elizabethan. Everything suits her. She could be have been a period actress of any era.

Thanks!
I think it was this famous night she wore this dress without the broch, and her breast was shown and taken on picture. It made a scandal at this time and Pcss Grace was very angry!
