What goes around comes around, he had an affair with Princess Caroline while he was married to her friend Chantal Hochuli, the affair broke up the marriage and he then married Princess Caroline. I guess she now knows what it feels like, couldn't have happened to a more deserving person

I can't disagree and really, she should have simply stayed single after Stefano.

I was just reading this on the DM !
 How humiliating for Princess Caroline. (and all for his $5 billion fortune ? Certainly Princess Caroline has more dignity then this ? And she grew up Royal with all the trimmings, so maybe his $$ does not impress her ? I realize she wanted the Title. But still. And he looks really fruity.)
I am looking at the middle photo in 2010. Look at that cute "Hello Kitty" Chanel purse with Princess Alexandra. I love PC's Chanel suit but her dyed hair looks dowdy. Her 2 sons, Andrea and Pierre look very sweet and well brought up, but I realize I cannot tell from a photo. LOL.
Charlotte is giving someone a look. Perhaps Charlene ?

So, what about Pierre with Princess Madeleine ? Or Prince William with Charlotte ?   :think: I know. I know. Way too late !   :hiss:
However, PW should have waited until he was 35ish to marry and chosen a nice sweet young lady of 20ish. Dumb decisions, PW, dumb decisions, man !  :ick:

I bet that it is hard for. She dedicated her whole life for Monaco, because her father needed her.
Charlene hasn´t much experience. But really, I don´t think she can´t do it without Carolines help in the first years. If Caroline is willing to help  :whistle:

I think she will cope it with many vacactions  :tehe:

Sometimes it appears that she is told to follow Caroline's lead at some of these outings, imo. I think it's going to be hard for Caroline at times, but she'll just tell Charlene "Call me Royal Highness  :lips: . I think the get along okay for now anyway.

Caroline will probably marry one more time to some obscure Russian Prince or European Prince, this is a woman who LIKES to be married. I saw a special on Monaco and there are many wealthy Russian&European Aristocrats living there or buying places there, bringing their money and wealth into the Principality. (Also many Russian mob infiltrated too  :shy:)
The tv program said that many of the Russian aristocrats who had wealth, purchased places in Monaco, they wanted to get their money out of Russia into what they considered safer havens.  Many did not even use their proper family names until out of Russia, but many are in Monaco now.

Stephanie has publicly let the press know she really likes Charlene. I'll bet Stephanie will love the idea of sticking it to her sister Caroline if she ever becomes a problem.

I read the Robert Lacey book on Grace and he rightly pointed out that being Princess of Monaco isn't the desirable job that it used to be. Dealing with a family with THAT MANY scandals is something that a lot of women would have to think four times about until they decided to take that much on.

Charlene may end up dominating the fashion pages, whihc I am sure will make Caroline :angry: and I don't know how she will like being second lady of the land. I do'nt think any other guy will marry Caroline, since she has had such a disastrous marital record and she isn't the catch she used to be when she first married. She only has her HRH via Ernst, if they divorce, she won't have it, since she isn't an HRH in her own right.


Title: Re: How Will Caroline Cope Not Being First Lady of Monaco?
Post by: serene grace on March 06, 2011, 01:06:08 am
Well she certainly is dressing more chic'.

Also she may end up being the only new Princess title coming. The press is going to have a meltdown if they can't call "u-know-who" a Princess too!

I do wonder if Caroline has given up on romance. She has had some really harsh times in love and marriage.

For a while, I'm sure Charlene will be a star, espcially since you know who wo'nt be a princess, but a Duchess, however royal. I just hope Caroline does the mature thing and lets Charlene take the reins as Princess of Monaco and continues to live a solid scandal free life. It would be a disappointment if Caroline started to make trouble, especially since Albert after all this time is marrying and finding a decent woman willing to marry him (unless a princess was forced) has been a near impossible task.

Interesting - PW take note......

Quote
The European Court of Human Rights has rejected a complaint by Princess Caroline of Monaco, in a ruling backing media rights on celebrity reporting.

The princess and her husband argued that a photo of the couple on holiday while her father, Prince Rainier, was ill violated their privacy.

They took the case to Strasbourg after German courts rejected their argument.

But the human rights court upheld the German decision, in a ruling that could affect privacy laws across Europe.

Post by: Alexander on August 08, 2012, 07:59:43 pm
Kuei i think there are many more reasons for Caroline to oppose her fathers proposed marriage to Ira than losing her place in the pecking order. Ira would have suffered frequent comparisons to Grace by the press and the people of Monaco who adored Grace. This could have also been seen as him trying to replace Grace, since Ira looks like the spitting image of Princess Grace, which would make him look decidedly creepy going around with what some would call Grace 2.0. That would only make an otherwise wonderful man look horrible. It could also lead to more conspiracy theories about just why Graces car careened off that cliff. Then you have to think of his children who would have great difficulty in accepting a new stepmother, especially one who does look so much like their mother it would make them uneasy.

I think Caroline was longing for this day arrive - Albert marry -, I do think she would love he have married when her husband died. I read a interview of her mother-in-law Fernanda Casiraghi they were all of them happy with the engagement of Albert and that the heir would arrive.

I don't know  a lot about the inner workings of this family, but Caroline always looks so tired and that leads me to believe that she could be relieved to now be able to live a quieter lifestyle and do what she pleases but yet be there as an advisor.

I thougth I would start a thread about Caroline since we are after all, getting WAY off topic on the other thread.


Title: Re: Princess Caroline of Monaco/Hanover
Post by: serene grace on November 10, 2012, 11:01:51 am
My last post about her was in the Tatianna and Andrea marriage thread.


Caroline said somewhere after she had began seeing Ernst, that she regretted not listening to her mother the first time around about getting together with Ernst.

I do remember her in early interviews discussing how her mother going through books for a Royal or Princely match bothered her, but I think something changed when she got older to make her want to marry Ernst for his title, imo was part of it.

I have a friend who use to read the french magazines,she once read me a article or story about Caroline being bothered by something that happened at one of the royal events, concerning her position(this  must have been after her husband Stephano died and before she got together with and married Ernst, but it was being covered in the magazine at the time, because Caroline had  now hooked with or just married Ernst)  I think something occured where Caroline was relegated to the back of the room or something(this was before she married to Ernst), I don't recall the entire story, but something happened at some event that bothered her "ego" greatly from what I recall of what my friend said.  I wish I saved all those old magazines

I will always believe part of Caroline going after Ernst in later years was to become a HRH on paper. To the outside world,her being HSH of Monaco may seem like enough, but in that world, Caroline as HSH with all those commoner marriages well it made her lower in the pecking order, much lower.....I believe? I think going for an HRH was a strategic move for her, cold , calculated from the eye of a now maturing Princess.


Title: Re: Princess Caroline of Monaco/Hanover
Post by: Kuei Fei on November 10, 2012, 11:43:34 am
I wonder how Caroline genuinely feels about Andrea's situation, since after all, Andrea is Heir after herself and surely Caroline had more stately ambition. No matter how much money Tiatiana brings into the family, or the amount of connections, I am certain that she's still not good enough in Caroline's eyes. I bet Caroline was looking through the Gotha and had the hope that Andrea would be able to snag a titled young lady who would end up bringing some sort of grandeur to that rotton family.

As for Caroline, she can put on all the pious airs she likes now, but back in her heyday she was quite the spitfire. Reminds me of young women who go through life partying and then regret not landing the catches when they had the chance. She found royal men 'boring' in the same way girls find nice guys boring when they are young; but after a string of failed romances and scandals, they end up regretting not taking nice guys when she had the chance. Only after a string of failed romances and scandals does she appreciate her title/status.

All those men would have been glad to marry Caroline, but she found all royalty boys boring, and she preferred to party in Paris.

 But I do wonder, how much of a chance did she realistically have with these men? I remember that a lot of the royal set shunned them and I believe that she probably would not have been welcome to marry any of these heirs.

Quote
Quote
the marriage was already ended since EA had been unfaithful before

As far as I'm concerned, Caroline has no reason to be so self-righteous about anything. Besides, a husband is still a husband and she has no reason to accept any advances while guy in question is married. When Diana and Charles were estranged, we still judge Camilla for porking him behind Diana's back. HANDS OFF HUSBANDS!

There is a reason it is a commandment.

Call it what you will, it's still adultery. She is no better than Grace who tarted around with more than enough married men in her bawdy youth as an actress. Chantal was supposedly a friend of hers and she pawned her way into Ernst's bed and go figure, had his daughter and got that title. Just how Camilla 'befriended' Diana. 

Quote
I think something occured where Caroline was relegated to the back of the room or something(this was before she married to Ernst), I don't recall the entire story, but something happened at some event that bothered her "ego" greatly


I believe that Caroline has had issues about how she's never cut it in the real world of royalty. She didn't have a great state occasion with many, many visiting royalties and it was explained away that such an event was for Albert. Instead, it was turned by Grace into a Hollywood extravaganza, with all of HER friends.

For some reason, Caroline has always rubbed me the wrong way.

I read in the Robert Lacey book about Grace, that Caroline didn't want Rainier to marry a German aristocrat because she felt threatened over her position of First Lady of Monaco and I do not think that Caroline likes Charlene at all.


Title: Re: Princess Caroline of Monaco/Hanover
Post by: serene grace on November 10, 2012, 12:55:53 pm
Caroline would have probably loved a Princess for Andrea but she honestly does adore Tatianna, she was there for her when someone close to Tatianna died a few years ago. She does like her.

I honestly think she sees Charlene as easy to handle, so possibly not bothered, but I'll bet she is relishing the notion that Andrea's soon spouse is producing before Charlene.

I think Charlene is tolerated by Caroline. Stephanie likes Charlene though, I think that's because Caroline has always tried to lord it over Stephanie at every turn and Stephanie is probably happy Caroline's no longer top dawwg or she won't be when or if Charlene ever produces.

Post by: Alexander on November 11, 2012, 06:03:41 pm
Serene Grace, i think the Caroline and Stephanie drama goes much deeper than Caroline being the first lady of Monaco. I remember reading in the Taraborelli book that it started after Graces death when Caroline tried to be a mother figure towards Stephanie. Stephanie wasn't interested in Caroline filling that kind of a position though and was not happy with her sister trying to interfere in her life and control her, she also didn't want another mother after having lost Grace who she loved very dearly. Caroline has never stopped trying to interfere in her sisters life though so i'm not surprised they aren't on good terms and Stephanie is nicer to Charlene.


Title: Re: Princess Caroline of Monaco/Hanover
Post by: Alexandrine on November 11, 2012, 06:12:00 pm
Steph depends on Albert to provide her money while Caroline inherited her personal fortune so Stephanie has incentives to be friendly with Charlene while Caroline can live her life as she wants to.

Yes it does sound like Caroline and Stephanie have some issues. There were a few years it was reported Caroline was trying to block Stephanie from the Monaco balls. The nerve of Caroline to hold her nose up as if she's any better than Stephanie.

I truly wonder if it could have ever been anything thing other than a mess though. She relied on Grace so much for strength, for advice, for guidance, for everything really that it's no wonder she has been so lost without her. I don't know what i would have done if i had watched my mother die, let alone to be blamed for it all like she has when, as the evidence now shows, that the chances of it being her fault are so slim.

Title: Re: Princess Caroline of Monaco/Hanover
Post by: Alexander on November 12, 2012, 02:29:37 pm
Some probably do KF, but at least to me it seems more like just the loss of the stabilizing effect that Grace had on her. By the way back on the subject of Caroline i found this interview with her from 1985 with Barbara Walters that i thought everyone mit want to see. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-f1TAVVsKQY&feature=plcp and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5sIFgvUyck&feature=plcp I found them very insightful.


Title: Re: Princess Caroline of Monaco/Hanover
Post by: Kuei Fei on November 12, 2012, 04:19:29 pm
I don't think Grace was stabilizing, so much that she was domineering. She pushed Caroline way too far and fast and I wonder if Caroline might have done things differently if in fact Grace had backed off more than she had been so controlling. What mother moves in with her young adult daughter and spends time criticizing her over her press coverage?


Title: Re: Princess Caroline of Monaco/Hanover
Post by: Alexander on November 12, 2012, 04:38:23 pm
With Caroline i agree she was far from stabilizing but with Stephanie i feel she was stabilizing and her words tended to be taken more seriously by Stephanie than they were by Caroline. As for moving in with Caroline, at the age Caroline was at the time, seventeen if i am remembering right and in Paris, i don't think there's anything wrong with that. As for her behavior i think it's hard to judge someone under the circumstances they were under at the time and the special considerations they had.


Title: Re: Princess Caroline of Monaco/Hanover
Post by: Kuei Fei on November 13, 2012, 06:02:48 am
Seventeen?

Cripes, now I understand why Grace moved in with her, think, a seventeen year old in PARIS!

Title: Re: Princess Caroline of Monaco/Hanover
Post by: sweetnbyrisk on February 01, 2013, 09:28:43 pm
Growing up, I was fascinated by the gorgeous, rebellious, dark haired Princess Caroline. She epitomized "cool" to me. I felt sorry for her when her marriage failed, her mother died, then her second husband was killed and she seemed unable to emerge from mourning. And I think she spent a lot of hands on time with her then three kids after their dad's death. She moved them all out of Monaco and tried her best to give them a "normal" life.

Then along came Prince Ernst and I lost so much respect for Caroline. I remember reading a Vanity Fair article called "The Princess and the Pee" and wondered what on earth she saw in this creepy guy who seemed so nasty and uncouth. I also thought it was horrible going after a good friend's husband. The article addressed that, too, quoting a friend as saying she found Caroline "terrifying" b/c of the "cold, focused way she goes after anything she wants--and then gets it too!"

I know Ernst has moved on with a new galpal and am somewhat surprised Caroline is not seeking a divorce. Would she lose her title if they divorced? Even so, I always saw her as a very proud woman and can't imagine she's thrilled about being usurped in her husband's affections by a younger version of her. Although, I think Ernst is a walking timebomb healthwise. He's nearly died at least once from severe pancreatitis and though warned not to drink and smoke continues to do both--heavily.

Are There Castles In The Sky?

Quote
If something is worth doing, it’s worth doing well. For the last eighteen months, Pringle of Scotland and Central Saint Martins have worked on a project about Hitchcock’s favourite movie star, the Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly.
 
Princess Grace was the subject of a major exhibition at the V&A in 2010, which ran with the pull quote: “The thing that made her stand out is what we call ‘style’,” from McCall’s magazine in 1955. The public image of Grace Kelly was as a real life Cinderella, her nation’s aspiration, wearing gowns little girls dreamt of, and climbing white marble steps to her fairytale palace. Enlisting the help of Grace’s eldest daughter, HSH Princess Caroline, the Central Saint Martins BA Fashion and History students recently set about presenting another side of Princess Grace, the woman and mother, who in her private life wore trousers (illegal in France until February 2013), glasses and knitwear. Pringle of Scotland knitwear.

Last spring, i-D flew to Monaco, the land of fast cars, real tans and boats bigger than the sky, to meet the BA students and visit their small but perfectly formed exhibition about the Princess at the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco, curated under HSH Princess Caroline’s eye. From super-8 footage of the royal family on holiday and at home, to collections of Grace’s glasses and headdresses, Princess Caroline granted more access than anyone really expected.

OK, we have the reason why Princess Caroline chooses to remain married to that scummy husband of hers. She loses her HRH if they divorce. Now what about Ernst? He's got another relationship going and heck he's already divorced one wife so why not lose Caroline? What's HIS motivation to stay married? :dontknow:


Title: Re: Princess Caroline of Monaco/Hanover
Post by: Kuei Fei on July 07, 2013, 10:37:08 am
If Ernst wants out, Caroline would puke her heart out. She ruined lives because of her actions and the HRH is what soothes her conscience at night.

As for Charlotte, I wonder how Princess Pious will feel if Charlotte is indeed pregnant out of wedlock.

Post by: Kuei Fei on July 08, 2013, 04:28:56 pm
I fully agree.

I find it amazing how when she was young, she had a lot of princes and nobles at her fingertips, but out of spite she married Junot and then spent the rest of her life running around wild and then ended up with nobles who were either married or uninterested in her.

Then to get her HRH, she had to steal a husband who was married to someone she was supposed to be friends with.

Caroline is a complicated woman. Actually, all the Grimaldis are a complicated bunch. For better or for worse, they do try their best to keep a semblant of dignity and happy family. I think the biggest problem for all three children is that they seem to have the worst luck in looking for love in all the wrong places. Even when they behave badly, it's almost impossible not to feel sorry for them for that reason. They fall but they always keep their heads high in spite of it all.

They do live separate lives, that I can tell you that much in this public forum.
But divorce after what she has done to get him & knows that he does cheat on his ex wife/ her former "best friend".
Caroline as well as his ex wife Chantal Hochuli (unbeknownst to her (Chantal)  that he would divorce) have accepted his infidelities & it they didn't leave so.... why now would Caroline leave? What made her think that he wouldn't do the same to her with younger girls saying the same sweet nothing to them like he did the Caroline.
Leti & Felipe live separate lives as well... & she ain't leaving, so now what....

You never know; I wonder how long Caroline can handle this constant slap in the face and if Ernst ends up deciding he wants out, then what is stopping him? Karma does come around and it's not like Caroline is immune to the possibility of Ernst deciding that one of his younger models would make a better wife.

Let see if it happens KF but I agree with Alex though... so yeah.

What do you guys think of Caroline's chances of becoming Princess of Monaco? She is seasoned at being a hostess, but I think she would be in over her head as a ruling Princess; at the same time, I am sure she's been actively grooming Andrea to take over and I think Tatiana's pregnancy has ended her dreams of a truly regal match for him. I wonder how she genuinely feels about Charlotte's pregnancy and impending marriage to Gad. There was every reason to believe Charlotte would end up with a titled match and be married in a regal Catholic High Nuptial Mass with a high ranking church official presiding.

Charlotte would wear a tiara and wear a princess-like white gown and it's in a way, the same dream for Andrea. Her son would marry a well bred bride and Caroline would go all out to ensure it would be an extravaganza. Tatiana is rich, but probably not what Caroline had in mind in terms of a bride of her son, the heir presumptive of becoming Prince of Monaco. Go figure, now only Pierre is left to do the family proud and he isn't even able to succeed when Andrea marries because Sacha will be his heir, legitimized after the marriage. It's all coming apart for Caroline, at least in terms of her dynastic dreams.

I read that Ernst was in line to the throne of Great Britain but relinquished that when he married a Catholic, Caroline.  However, their daughter, Alexandra, is being raised Protestant and is still in line to the British throne, however far down the line she may be.

I wonder if Caroline is quietly praying that Charlene does not get pregnant with an heir of direct lineage, thus bypassing her own children. Nothing can convince me that Caroline isn't determined to see her son Andrea on the throne as Prince of Monaco and determined to end up running the country before Andrea.

I think you are right about that, and honestly I think that Caroline would be a greater ruler then Albert is.

If I were Charlene I would keep popping the birth control pills and avoid having a kid. If she has a kid and Albert drops, she would have to put up with Caroline causing all sorts of drama; without a kid, Charlene can be Dowager Princess of Monaco and enjoy a fat inheritance, title, and any man to be her husband when she wants to remarry.

I think Charlene will have IV done to get pregnant like I said before...

I understand your point, but the problem with that is that Charlene, like most women, probably want's children.
 Albert doesn't look like he's going anywhere so the inheritance is way off, and she most likely married in order to have a family with him.
