here's the pic I forgot to add. (sorry)

Princess Antoinette is standing behind Princess Grace.

This picture was taken in 1957 during the Princely Couple's visit to Denmark. They were waiting to catch a flight to Stockholm.

I am very curious to see what the DeMassey family is up to now, especially Christian. I haven't been able to find ANY info on them.

I haven't heard anything about them either, are you talking about the book Palace? If so, I thought it was pretty good, did you?

Yes, the book is called "Palace." It's basically his life story, and what it was like growing up in the Royal Family. It ended in 1986, and he was banished from Monaco, and he had just divorced his second wife Michelle (who died from drugs years later). I just wondered where he lives now, if he's allowed back in Monaco, and when and to whom he got married. Also, I have read that his sister, Christine De Massey died of leukemia. When did this happen?

One of the sisters was also married to a cousin of Grace Kelly. I think they're divorced now, but I haven't been able to find any more info on that either.

On Grace and Ranier's wedding day... Christian is the boy at the top of the picture with the top of his head cut off... He was also in Caroline's baptism but I couldn't find the picture...

monos26 11-20-2003 05:33 PM

Does anyone know where he lives now? When did he get married again, and who is his wife? Is he on speaking terms again with the royal family?

Does anyone know where they live, what they do? Especially Christian. Is he still banished from Monaco?

Jean 01-06-2004 05:25 PM

Why was he banished from Monaco? :unsure:

kittencrews 01-06-2004 05:34 PM

Because he mother Princess Antionette was always suspected of trying to take over as ruler of Monaco... so evintually Grace and Rainier banished the whole family. They are now welcome obviously because Antionette and Elizabeth Ann are often at functions with Caroline and Rainier

kittencrews 01-06-2004 05:41 PM

I believe that's right, I read Palace too long ago to remember everything...

Jean 01-06-2004 05:44 PM

Ah ok, thanks for the info. :)

From what I've heard his book was a very controversial thing because it contained lots of rumors and stuff that he saw. I remeber also reading that he was friends with Phillipe Junot on Paris in the 70s. The book was released in the late 80s I believe.

monos26 01-19-2004 12:45 AM

Well, I guess there were a lot of problems with the entire DeMassey family since Rainier's sister tried to take the throne by way of her son. However, according to "Palace" Christian was banned for writing the book (and for other personal problems with the family). I've always wondered where he moved to, if he's still banished, and when/how he met his current wife. Any other info would be greatly appreciated!
