Grace Maman


This edition of Paris Match, showing a photograph of HSH Princess Grace, was amongst a pile of old magazines on sale at a recent BrocTroc in Menton. The date is February 1957 so the baby is HSH Princess Caroline who was born on 23 January of that year.

There's something so poignant in this, isn't there? Memories flood back...

This is the kind of thing that I never throw away...amazing to see it after all those years...it was just before I was born!

Beautiful woman, I loved her in To Catch a Thief with Cary Grant.

Nah. Not really sad, in the grand scheme of things. I will go with poignant, though. What I do like is the overall image, Jilly. The 'memory'. The age that can be conveyed with just a few well-worn pages.

Did you buy it, or have you enough clutter of your own!

That's not baby Caroline. Grace was taking a course on how to care for babies from the hospital! It's a doll.

Ah that's interesting. Now that I look closely I see it's a doll. How about that!
