The Princesses of Monaco

I have heard of Grace Kelly before. I knew she was the Princess of Monaco. I remember Nicole Richie saying that her wedding dress was inspired by Grace Kelly. I know Nicole Kidman is in a movie about her. And that was about all I knew about her.

I had no idea she was an Academy Award winning actress. I didn’t know how many kids she had. I didn’t know she was a model. I didn’t know about her private life. I had no idea that she died from a car accident at the age of 52.

I decided to watch this 45 minute documentary on Grace Kelly and her family. It talked about her life and how she met the Prince of Monaco and the upbringing of her children. It was interesting to hear about what her kids were up to and how they dealt with growing up in the spotlight. It also talks about how her family picked up the pieces after her death.

William & Harry : The Brother Princes

This short 20 minute special follows Prince William and Prince Harry on their first official visit to South Africa together. They were there to work with their charities: William on conservation and Harry with underprivileged children.

The close bond they share is plain to see and it’s really sweet. They have busy schedules and it’s rare for them to be together, so they were clearly enjoying each other’s company. They tease each other and are sarcastic but say that is how they keep each other grounded.

William talked about how their father instilled in them an appreciation of the environment and the importance of conservation. Harry talked about how being in Africa allows them to step out of the limelight that is always on them back home in London.

Prince Harry started a charity with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, who is also the brother of the king to be, and lost his mother as well. William works with the Tusk Trust and is a patron.

The media following the Princes allows a light to be shone on these important causes. Harry says it helps to remind the public of these issues and how lucky they are.
 They both said how they think about their mother with their work. William said he likes to thinks he would be proud of them. And Harry mentioned that he thinks about her everyday and what she would be like and what she would be doing, and that that keeps them going everyday. It is really sweet and actually gave me goosebumps.
My favorite part was the very last few seconds when they end the interview and Harry tries to go in for a hug with William and he says , “Don’t touch me. I’ve said all I’ve ever said about you. It’s disgusting, I feel sick. I need to beat you up or something.” They are such normal, down to earth gentlemen and they don’t deserve the negative press. The work they do is quite inspiring and makes me want to do more to give back.

Rebecca Romijn

Rebecca Romijn is one pretty lady. I love her humor and how honest she and her husband, Jerry O’Connell, are about parenthood. They have young twins girls and I always love their interviews when they talk about the joys and challenges about being parents.
