Monaco’s Flower Power
On April 24th, the 43rd International Flower Show and the 13th Salon “Reveries sur Jardins” took place in Monaco. The Sovereign, Prince Albert II, arrived for the double-billed event with his elder sister.
Princess Caroline cut a brazen figure in peep-toe Louboutin heels and fishnet stockings. She wore a billowy taupe green, sleeveless summer dress with a V-neck. Her necklace had gigantic Jade gemstones, pearls, and crystals. There was an earthy feel to the whole ensemble.
The Prince attempted to convey the idea of greenness and freshness, perhaps, in the choice of his tie, which pale green colour didn’t quite match his blue shirt. Nevertheless, the brother and sister appeared happy and interested to be with the Garden Club of Monaco, who are the organizers of the annual event, for the pedestrian tour of the aromatic and tropical potted plants and flowers.
Besides, the Concours des Bouquets (literally: Competition of Bouquets) there was the exhibition, “Roveries sur les Jardins” (or: “Musings on gardens”) by the master landscape architect Jean Mus. The expositions of the participants were followed by a prize ceremony and dinner at the Hermitage Hotel.Filed under German Royals, Monaco Royals
