Princess Caroline News

It has been a busy week for Princess Caroline, starting with a celebratory gala in Berlin in honor of Robert Wilson’s 70th birthday. Wilson is a world famous choreographer, long known to the House of Grimaldi and the gala was put on by Mountblanc (the same people who released the Princess Grace inspired line of jewelry last month). Wilson is an old friend of the company and a frequent collaborator in their projects. Coinciding with the release of the jewelry line, for example, Wilson produced an accompanying musical encapsulating the life of the late princess from Hollywood superstar to Monegasque consort called “Grace for Grace”. And, later on, our Caro was back in Monaco at the Princely Palace to hand out the Prince Pierre Award for literature, this year going to author and journalist Pierre Assouline who has written numerous biographies and is the purveyor of a literature blog. That was Tuesday, the next day all the winners were at the palace to meet with HSH Prince Albert II and pose for photographs. The award is named after Prince Pierre of Monaco, father of Rainier III and Antoinette, and was established by HSH Prince Rainier III in 1951 in honor of his father, who he always felt had been rather slighted (which he was) and who was a known patron of the arts and letters.
