What is the exact day the Grimaldis do the Christmas present giving at the palace and who specifically are invited? Do they invite children from a specific school, charity, or other organization?
Will it be special this year, maybe with more family members attending (hoping the trio especially, of course!) because of Albert's accession year?

So here are the christmas pix of 1993 I have. I forgot to tell you, Iceflower that my collection is fixed on The Casi's and not the other members. I do have them but not as many I have on the Casi"s.

I think it will be next Wednesday afternoon, which is the last schoolafternoon off before the holidays. The children are the children of palace employees only ( so no poor children, those are being taken care of by the city hall) and there is a certain age limit as well. (I think they are all children in maternelle, but I will check that when it's in the paper) I suppose it will be just PA and Steph, who also did it last year ( Rainier was still suffering from his respiratory problems which kept him from attending last NH).

Thank you so much for the lovely pics, townsend! And it's very nice to see Antoinette there as well :)

And Romy thank you for your kind words, I'm always happy to share my pics with others here :) I'm not sure, but maybe this could be the pic you are searching for?! I also add one of Grace and Albert in 1970 and one of Grace preparing the Christmas presents :)

Monaco should be so thankful that Princess Grace started this very generous tradition. According to her biographies, this is one project she really cared for, and Prince Rainier approved of it exceptionally because it allowed the Princely Family to be in close contact with their subjects. Also, it gave him a better understanding that he married a woman who has an innate sense of charity, a perfect Princess inside and out.

Funny you should say that, because a lot of people here do not think it is very xmassy here. ANd I must admit that a few years back, i thought they put a lot more afford into it then since the last 3 or 4 years. I remember, when we had huge Santa mailboxes all over MC where children could send their letters to Santa ( which all received an answer btw) and xmas carols playing in the streets. Now we just have the basic decoration, which is put up every year.
