    A royal photographer is spilling behind-the-scenes details on what some of the world’s most glamorous princesses were like away from the cameras.

    In his new book, My Life Photographing Royalty And The Famous, Reginald Davis, who worked as a royal photographer for four decades, reveals a more intimate side to the last century’s most famous royals.

    But “the most difficult royal I ever photographed,” he said, according to the Daily Express, was Princess Grace of Monaco.”

    “She only agreed to a private audience because I had previously had a private audience with the Queen,” he continued.

    “Everyone wanted to shoot Grace,” he said. “She was such an attractive woman, why be so haughty, arrogant and awkward?

    “Of course, you’d never know that from looking at her face” he said. “(In the photo) she seems every inch the relaxed, happy mother.”
    Princess Grace was a very sensitive and sweet natured woman; the life as a Princess Consort was highly stressful to her - she was so used to calling her own shots in life; marriage to Prince Rainier changed all of that...my heart always went out to her because her life wasn't as happy as it should have been, and her children turned out to be major disappointments. She did try to make a love match between Princess Caroline and Prince Charles, but that never would have worked - Caroline was Catholic, and decidedly NOT a virgin.

    Same here! She's like her mother was - very regal.

    I dread having photos of Charles on our money!

    Royal Wedding Crisis! Prince Ernst-August Publicly Opposes His Son’s Marriage Days Before the Ceremony

    Not all royal weddings go off without a hitch.

    Prince Ernst-August Jr. of Hanover — whose stepmother is Princess Caroline of Monaco — is set to wed Russian-born, Czech-raised Ekaterina Malysheva in a massive televised religious ceremony on Saturday, part of 10 days of planned festivities expected to draw dozens of young royals and aristocrats.

    But the groom’s father has thrown a series wrench into things.

    On Monday, Prince Ernst-August V, head of the now-deposed royal House of Hanover in Germany and brother-in-law to Monaco’s Prince Albert, announced formal opposition to the marriage based on a very simple premise: He wants his castles back, along with family property deeded over to his son between 2004-2006.

    The 33-year old London-based investment banker and the 30-year old fashion designer, who have been together for eight years, were engaged on a family vacation in Greece last summer. The bride, who designs skintight lamé catsuits, has opted for a traditional wedding route, and even her choice of a Sandra Mansour gown has been publicized for months.

    Ernst Sr., who is still married to Caroline despite the couple’s longtime separation and his numerous scandals, told German newspaper Handelsblatt he opposes the marriage and is motivated by his desire to preserve family property, especially lands in Lower Saxony.

    “The decision was not easy for me because it concerns my son,” he told the newspaper. “But I am constrained to preserve the interests of the House of Hanover and the property, including cultural property, which has been its property for centuries.” Through his lawyers, the twice-married, 63-year-old noble — who is cousin to Queen Elizabeth — has asked his son to return property passed over a decade ago when he arranged his own tax matters. At the time, Ernst-August’s wealth was estimated as high as $250 million; estimates valued the property as worth in excess of $100 million.

    “I continue to hope that my son will eventually think of the best interests of our family and yield,” he said. “I am ready for discussion and reconciliation.”

    Curiously, opposing a marriage seems a Hanoverian family trait. Ernst-August Sr.’s own father (Ernst-August IV) opposed his son’s marriage to first wife Chantal, a Swiss commoner.

    While casting high drama over the nuptials — and potentially causing a split in the family line — Ernst-August Sr.’s opposition isn’t expected to interrupt this weekend’s parade.

    Royal watchers expect the groom’s half-sister, 16-year old Princess Alexandra of Hanover, the daughter of Princess Caroline, to be prominent among attendees, which should also include younger members of the Monégasque royals and aristocratic houses that enjoy close friendly ties with both Ernst-August Jr. and his younger brother, Christian, 31.

    I'm sorry, but Princess Caroline is a bottom feeder - staying married to this despicable man just so she can outrank her brother and sister, who are mere Serene Highnesses to her Royal Highness. Pitiful.

    The Hanover eurotrash are a bunch of drunken, inbred degenerates who, but for a quirk of history, would also rule the UK now. Surely the precious family lands would only be at risk if the heir and his porno star new wife divorce. So get a watertight prenup?

    The groom obviously slept in a ditch the night before. He looks like an unmade bed.

    I hate the way the hem on his pants is dragging on the ground. That is so tacky, especially in a formal tux.

    Agree. None of it fits properly. Looking like a fool with your pants on the ground.
