Happy Birthday to HRH Princess Caroline of Hanover, HSH Princess of Monaco!

On January 23, 2011, HRH The Princess of Hanover, the Hereditary Princess of Monaco, Caroline, turned 54 years young.  The stunning eldest daughter of the late Prince Rainier III and the late Princess Grace of Monaco celebrated her day with family and friends.

With the loss of her mother in 1982 and with the loss of her father in 2005, Princess Caroline continued to forge ahead, but not without several personal as well as health problems.  She has been married three times, divorced once, currently separated, and a widow.  After the death of her husband, Stefano Casiraghi on October 3, 1990, Princess Caroline’s health began to deteriorate.  In 1996, she began to experience hair loss.  Soon, she lost it all.  Though she never confirmed it in public many doctors, commenting about her hair loss, believed the beautiful Princess suffered from Alopecia Totalis, an autoimmune disorder brought on by severe stress as well as genetics.

In time her hair grew back and her health began to vastly improve.

Today, Princess Caroline is the proud mother of four, and is quite active with various charities/patronages for the Principality of Monaco including:

  1. Les Ballets de Monte Carlo
  2. Amade Mondiale
  3. The Princess Grace Foundation
  4. Monte Carlo Opera
  5. The Spring Arts Festival
  6. The Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra
  7. The Red Cross

So, there you have it!  A CliffNotes version of HRH The Princess of Hanover, the Hereditary Princess of Monaco, Caroline.

Happy Birthday, Princess!  🙂
