My guess is that she curtsied because she is the Heiress Presumptive, Stephanie is not.

Any video of the event?

I guess Caro is the only one sticking to etiquette because also Ernst just hugged and (sort of) kissed Albert; then Albert went to kiss also Antoinette.

FYI no nieces or nephews that I could see...

Kisses

I assure you that for the politicians and the Spanish population his question was not innocent at all. His question was total and absolutely badly meaningful. It does not serve the excuse of wanting a few Olympic sure games, because today in day no country is sure against the terrorism (what happened in London two days later demonstrates it). On the other hand, ETA already existed when the Olympic Games were celebrated in Barcelona.
Besides, he worsened the situation with the topic of Gibraltar a few days later.
Alberto managed the almost impossible thing to put all the political parties of agreement.
The Spanish we are a very sensitive society with the topic of the terrorism because we have suffered very much. And his way of using the topic of the terrorism did not please.
It wasn´t liked neither by the politicians, nor by the citizens ... if you had heard the commentaries of the politicians, of the journalists, of the normal people ... . Whenever one speaks about Alberto of Monaco the people speak about it.
The King of Spain is the Chief of the State, and his family represents all the Spanish ... and the Spanish do not want to be represented in this ceremony.

It is not a personal question, not of Royal Families it is a question of politics and of loyalty to the citizens of the country to which it is represented.

The Spanish Royal Family and that of Monaco always they have had good relation. The Queen Victoria Eugenia (grandmother of the King Juan Carlos) was living in the exile in Switzerland, and he was the only member of the royalty who came to the wedding of Rainiero and Grace and supported Grace. She was the godmother of Alberto.

In addition the family Grimaldi travels every year to Spain, because of it the people did not understand Alberto's question, because if his family travels every year to Spain it has to know well the situation of the country. If a country is not sure, it is not to come to a wedding (and the safety in that of the Princes of Asturias was giving), to come to hunt, to have dinner, to go of party...

It will have to pass a time in order that the Spanish forget that one.

It is not also the first time that happens, the Kings of Spain did not go to Carlos and Diana´s wedding because they were beginning their honeymoon in Gibraltar. Some years later they came to Spain, and Carlos' relation with the Spanish Royal Family is marvellous (even he has come to 3 weddings).

A Monaco citizen watches on TV the ceremony of the enthronement of Prince Albert II, in a bar in Monaco, Thursday, Nov. 17, 2005. Prince Albert II is to be formally invested as ruler of Monaco this week in a series of ceremonies. The high point , which coincides with Monaco's National holiday, takes place Thursday in the royal palace
