Relationships between members of the Princely Family

Hi again...

...about Caro and Steph...and their relationship:

They might have had some fights and arguments...and certainly they have some kind of different ways of living....but still they're sisters who respect each other and love each other a lot.

Stephanie said about it :

"I don't see her very often. She has her life and I've mine. We have both made our choices. We have both made our way. That's a bit sad sometimes because I often need her a lot. Maybe there have been moments in her life when she needed me too...but we have two very different chareacters...two very different lifestyles.
If tomorrow something happens to her...she's my blood, my sister..I'd do no matter what for her. "

Paris Match / October 2000


...and so feels Caroline about it. She said she goes very much along with what her sister said.
Their relationship is not too bad at all!

Some photos of the two sisters are following....

Caroline And Stephanie's Relationship
 
1 Attachment(s)
I was just watching Entertainment Tonight and they said there would be a story on Princesses Caroline and Stephanie's strained relationship in the October 2003 issue of Vanity Fair ... with someone close to my heart on the cover! :P

Among the highlights were:

* Caroline secretly (not so secretly?) blames Stephanie for their mother's death because Stephanie and Grace were fighting at the time and/or Stephanie was driving - which she denies

* Stephanie dates whomever she wants, including the help, without consequence

... Vanity Fair seems to be on a royal roll lately!

Oops! Forgot to add that the issue goes on sale next Tuesday in North America. Not sure about the rest of the world.

Julia 09-03-2003 08:28 PM

I'll be one of the first people to snap up VF at the stands next Tuesday! Thanks, Alexandria! Oh, and Mr. Clooney looks mah-velous on the cover! ;)

I watched Entertainment Tonight just a few hours ago and I did see a report about Princess Caroline and Stephanie's strained relationship. Princess Caroline's still believes that it was Stephanie who was driving on the wheels during the time of the accident. It was also reported there that during that time Princess Grace and Stephanie were having an argument.

Prince Rainer's 5 billion fortune is to be divided among his children and instead of Stephanie receiving a large amount, she will only receive 25 million.

Sorry, but this is complete ... :( garbage :( ...where do they think they know this from....
About Steph's money....who knows...nobody will ever..it's not even interesting....she'll always have enough...
As for Caroline believing that steph was driving: That's the most horrible lie I ever heard. Caro and Steph are not always getting along like sitewrs should, but they love and respect esch other...how could Caro ever be able to breath if she'd believe this garbage....

Whatever, losing a mother at age 17 is one of the worse ages I think to have that happen. It often leaves long-time scars. :shock:

Jade70 09-04-2003 10:41 PM

I agree with you all!!!!!

Julia 09-04-2003 10:58 PM

I agree with galisteo's statement. The press gets bored and embellishes upon the few negatives in the relationship between Caroline and Stephanie to keep people interested. It's shameless but as galisteo has said Caroline and Stephanie has never give interviews! I think now would be a good time for them to "clear" the air.

Hi everybody!

I was unaware that neither Stephanie and Caroline have ever given public interviews. For example, the Harper's Bazarr issue with Caroline on the cover that Julia uses as her avatar, I thought I remembered there being an interview with Caroline in it? There was definitely text along with the beautiful pictures of the Princess.

As much as I would love :heart: to hear either or both Caroline and Stephanie's thoughts and feelings or perceptions about the events in their lives, I think there is something to be said for staying silent. Let the press write what they will, true, false, extreme exageration, whatever, but as long as Ranier, Albert, Caroline, Stephanie and their children know the truth, then that's all that matters.

I think about Jackie Kennedy who never gave a public interview following the president's assasination. When she made public appearances or spoke in public they were always for causes she believed in and that said ten times more about the kind of person she was and the kind of life she wanted to live than anything she could've said or revealed in one sensational interview. And even if she did give an interview (or lots of them) statements would've been embellished and exaggerated and misinterpreted anyways. You can't win!

www.nypost.com/gossip/cindy.htm - It's Cindy Adams, the gossip columnist from the New York Post, so take it with a grain of salt ...

A WAR's under way in downtown Monaco's toy palace. Princess Caroline, 46, talked of as being "tough," and Princess Stephanie, 37, who is always talked of as being "a tough case," are killing one another. Steph wanted to schlep her newest lover, her father's gray-haired butler, Richard Lucas - also married with two kids - to a family gala and, as I reported then, Steph subsequently didn't show. Vanity Fair's new issue explains why in its juicy piece beating up the sisters. "Princesses Behaving Badly" says chain-smoking Caroline, whose own third husband is a bit boozy, barred her. And they're now calling one another names. Steph says Caroline's jealous of her. Caroline says Steph's taking the family down market. Makes those Brit royals really look regal.

Hi Alexandria. :)

There was somekind of banal interview in the October 96' Harper's Baazar issue w/ Caroline on the cover. I vaguely remember it and I wish I could get my hands on a copy. It mostly discussed Caroline's style, the late Pss Grace, her kiddos and there might have been a sentence or two on Stefano. It was mostly what we already knew and know.

When was it that Pss Caro sat down with Barbara Walters (or was it Diane Sawyer?)? I never saw that interview and would love to know what was said.

I guess what it boils down to is what the sisters real feelings are with regards to one another which I guess we might not ever know! Having said that, I must say that all of this talk from gossip columnists cannot be complete lies. I can believe that Caroline would not approve of Stephanie's lifestyle and vice-versa. What sisters don't argue and disapprove of one another's lifestyles and actions?

QUOTED FROM JULIA: There was somekind of banal interview in the October 96' Harper's Baazar issue w/ Caroline on the cover. I vaguely remember it and I wish I could get my hands on a copy.

... I am in the process of cleaning out my magazines. I remember this issue and it is in my royalty collection because there were also photos of Princess Diana in it. I will find it and have a re-read.

QUOTED FROM JULIA: When was it that Pss Caro sat down with Barbara Walters (or was it Diane Sawyer?)? I never saw that interview and would love to know what was said.

... Yes! I had completely forgotten about this interview. It was Diane Sawyer for Primetime Live. I distinctly remember Diane descending the grand palace steps with Caroline, who had lost her hair at the time, so her head was wrapped in a beautiful head scarf. I wonder if you can buy this tape from ABC? Will have a look into it. It would be a good investment, n'est pas?

Julia 09-05-2003 12:28 AM

Oui! It would be a very good investment. I'll check into it as well. ;) Also, I will be on tender hooks until you find that Oct 96' mag! ;) :P

paulette 09-05-2003 04:29 AM

It is so sad to hear that what the media is saying to the public are deceptive. Well that's the world now full with people whose mission is just to destroy lives especially relationships.

I just admire how the family handles this kind of rumors if its really a sham. I understand Princess Caroline and Stephanie not talking about this issue for they know its untrue and its up to them to heal their strained relationship if ever there is. It's not just the people worldwide who were mourning over the death of Princess Grace so much more the family members. What happened was an accident and we can't avoid it to happen for we only can prevent it.

Well whatever things had happened in the past then it should not be a barrier for the two princesses to be more close. There's a saying that says "Let the bygones be bygones forever." Life should go on and they should remain intact to the ground..

Oh Julia! Even though it was late, I couldn't stop thinking about that magazine and went to have a look for it and it turns out I dont have it in the pile I thought it was in, so now I don't know where it is. :doh: :(

Alexandria 09-07-2003 03:52 PM

Wow! You have such a good memory galisteo! All I remember from that interview - now 6 years ago! - was watching Diane Sawyer descend the palace stairs in the intro! I sure hope you can find that tape and fill us all in on more great details from the interview.

Alexandria 09-10-2003 02:14 PM

I just got the Vanity Fair with the "Princesses Behaving Badly" story. Lots of pictures - about 6 in all - of Caroline and Stephanie with Grace, Ranier, Albert and several of Caroline and Phillippe Junot, Caroline and Ernst, Stephanie and Franco Knie and Stephanie and Richard Lucas, her father's former butler. Have not read the article yet - quite long, about 6 pages - but will try to sneak in some reading while at work. If not, for sure on the train home. So expect a summary from me! (Or someone else if they read it first!)

(And by the way, my George is looking pretty fabulous in this issue ... but I'm sure he would be more fabulous in person! ;) )

Alexandria 09-10-2003 07:43 PM

I read half the article on the train coming home from work, very juicy and gossipy, but I'm not sure how credible it is. Has anyone else read it?

I will post tid bits from the article that I found to be most juicy and interesting. It will take me a while though, because although I am a fast typer, I cannot re-type a 5,000+ word article in an evening -- espescially since I find much of it be fascinating! :P

Stay tuned ...
