I have always wanted to know if Caroline and her sister get on?

If not  - why?
Well from several things I've read Jonathan, they used to be close when they were younger.  Then when Stephanie started acting wild and being rebellious, then Caroline was not happy with her at all.  Since
Stephanie's become a mother and is a little more responsible, they've gotten along better.  Caroline used to hate her behavior because it would upset Rainier their father so much, and his health wasn't very good.  This is what I've read in books and articles but of course, we won't ever know if it's all accurate.

My tuppence worth.

Caroline reminds me so much of Princess Margaret of England.

Beautiful and privileged, they were highly intelligent and thus bored with their tinsel-strewn but empty lives. Had they been born into a different lifestyle they might have been happier but they were intelligent yet underutilised and this made them depressed, a sign they both exhibited through grandiosity and hauteur.

 For a young woman, Caroline seems remarkably jaded in the Walters interview.
Caroline only looked happy during her family years with Stefano. Those were her "years" so to speak- looked great and had  a vibrant smile.

Ultimately both she and Margaret were beautiful second fiddles with a gilded material life which was never quite matched by their personal, emotional life. Maria Callas too was beautiful, intelligent, wealthy and miserable. They'd  have been better off if they were just clothes horse bimbos; their tragedy is that they weren't.

The Monaco royals, especially Caroline, have always struck me as being like a Ferrari. Take a Ferrari out on the racetrack that it was made for, run it at top speed, and it purrs like a pussycat; drive it in the city at 20 miles an hour, stop-start, stop-start, and the engine will clog up with carbon and give one problem after another. Caroline and Stephanie needed to have serious, difficult jobs - perhaps with some UN organization that does real work with third-world problems - that would have made demands on them; I think they'd have blossomed if given the chance to show what they could do. Let them lie around idle with too much money and they self-destruct.

stephanie is very much involved in the fight against aids. she has her own charity "Fight Aids Monaco" and is a UN AIDS ambassador.

caroline is involved with children's issues (she received a Unicef award a few years ago) and is in charge of Amade, which is part of the UN network of NGOs. she's also very involved with arts, having founded Les Ballets de Monaco.

Not the kind of purpose I meant Cara. That is the Lady Bountiful routine which is de rigeur for any royal lady. When I said diferent lifestyle I meant something more consuming. Maybe a happy middle class lady called Caroline Nobody married to a nice doctor with three lovely kids and a happy, ordinary domestic life - saving up a holiday or something to aspire to and work towards, simple pleasures. Or indeed Caroline, politician of Nowherespecial, working hard on her local issues as a councillor or impassioned Caroline Ordinary with a high powered career as a surgeon. Something other than gilded advantage punctuated by a few charity meetings carrying a Dior briefcase or fundraising galas, eating nice food and appearing in a designer ballgown for charity. A real career or purpose of her own.

That many of us should find this kind of life.

i get your point.

imo both sisters have found a purpose in their life, the aids fight for stephanie and the ballets de monaco for caroline.

stephanie has also sought out other careers before (as a singer and designer) but none of those careers went very far.

i do think that both sisters were at some point very happy with their domestic lives... unfortunately that was going to be short-lived.
