Gorgeous! I always like your posts about Rainier and Grace.
They were a great couple, Grace most agree on and though Rainier gets little attention comparitively I think he was one of the best princes Monaco has ever had. Also, as you have lately been remarking on, though the Grimaldis seem to have had more than their share of marital discord, there were couples like Rainier and Grace who were truly devoted to each other and had a very happy marriage.
Do you know when is it going to be the Rose Ball 2011?
The Rose Ball will be held on the 19th. Princess Caroline has chosen a Motown theme for this year.
As much as Grace was extremely, breathtakingly beautiful and did not need much adornment, how I wish her husband gave her more bling! She certainly deserved a bigger tiara. Thanks for these wonderful photos.
Perhaps some of that moderation in adornment was related to Monaco's status (not a kingdom).
Princess Grace also had a more simple and understated style. What family jewels there were mostly belonged to Rainier's mother Princess Charlotte and she took care to pass these on to Princess Caroline who, mostly in her younger days, did show them off on occasion.
