Right now, Princess Caroline is Heiress Presumtive to Monaco's throne because she is the next oldest child after the son of Prince Rainier III. However, before Prince Rainier III, women weren't in the line of succession in Monaco. Rainier III changed that so Caroline and Stephanie and their children could also be in line for the throne after Albert II.

Current line of succession in Monaco w/ Albert II and his sisters:

Albert II
--Any legitamate children of Albert II

HRH Princess Caroline of Hanover (Heiress Presumtive)
--Andrea Casiraghi
--Pierre Casiraghi
--Charolotte Casiraghi
--HRH Princess Alexandra of Hanover

HSH Princess Stéphanie of Monaco
--Robert Ducret
--Pauline Ducret

Under German law I don´t think that the HRH has any standing whatsoever. Weren´t all titles abolished and to maintain the title in names it had to be incorporated into their surname?

Legally, yes .. in August 1918, the new govt announced that titles were to become one's surname.  However, socially, it is another matter.

In my opinion it's ridiculous that someone should be called HRH The Princess of Hanover when hanover doens't have a monarchy (in fact, Hanover as we understand it in royalty doens't exist, most of it belongs to Niedersachsen), let alone speak of The Crown Prince of Yugoslavia or the Claimant to the Russian throne, when Russia doens't have one :P Still, we are human oddities :P

Thanks for clearing that up Marlene. I had no idea that the heiress presumptive to the Spanish throne could be Princess of the Asturias? Has it ever happened before? Oooh, and another rank question if you don't mind.quote]



You see, Prince Lieven, you did ask for it!! he he

Have you any pics or photos about "the fairest of them all" Princess Grace Patricia Kelly Grimaldi?

She was a star in Hollywood and she is a legendary princess like Sissi!!! She is one of the most loved Princess of all time!!!
She is very very beautiful!!!

I thought I should start this thread today, because today is the birthday of one of the most famous Grimaldi's - Grace Kelly - Princess Grace.

Yes, Grace was a wonderful lady, in my opinion.  Monaco was very lucky to have her as its First Lady for so long - sadly, not long enough.

It is hard to realise she would now be 76 years of age...

Yes, and at 76 in this day and age she could conceivably live another 10-15 years!

I agree! Very sad  :(. I think it's rather haunting that both she and Princess Diana were very similar and both their lives were cut short in similar ways. Diana attended her funeral too.  :(

My Dad says that Grace Kellys wedding was amazing!!
:) :)
