I like it that the Prince of Monaco still makes use of the special royal dais in the church. Together with the King of Sweden, he is only one of the few still to do so. See example:http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Wj1kk7chvw...l-Family-1.jpg .

In other monarchies they often have the best place (first row) or close to the Altar but often there is also a special royal dais or loge. See example (this one in Apeldoorn, Netherlands, near Het Loo Palace). Sadly often no longer used, the royals preferring to sit with the congregration.

My compliments for the Prince for continuing to use the special loge princier. I like that.

As far as I'm aware Fandesacs2003, Charlene and Rainier never met. By the time she started to see Albert I think Rainier was already very frail.

Thanks Florestane. I wonder if Pcs Rainier would appreciate Charlene. Who knows.
Other matter. I do not understand why Charlotte and Andrea did not attend. Especially from Paris Charlotte could make it in one day go and come back.

Well I expect Andrea was staying close to Tatiana who is very close to giving birth, I believe. Who knows about Charlotte? As for Rainier and Charlene I'm not sure they would have had much in common but it's only conjecture - impossible to say really.

That small video at the end where Albert, Caroline and Stephanie greeted members of their late father's Household and staff was quite touching. The Grimaldi children probably knew most of them from their infancies. One of them spoke to Princess Stephanie with particular affection.

Fandesacs2003,
Why prince Rainier would not have appreciate Charlene?


She was a fresh a woman, a true sportive woman and without skandal.and a warm person, he would know that the monegash people would love her.


At that Times, he wanted so much that his son would married, He never wanted a princess , but a person like her who would love his son and give heirs to the throne of Grimaldi. His two daughters were not happy in the wedding.


He would be now very proud of his son , his daughter in law and of the princely twins.

I do no suggest that Pcs Rainier would not like Charlene, i frankly do not know. Nevertheless, it could be for many reasons. She is not royal, even not upper class raised up, and 20 years younger to his sons. Some parents would find enough these reasons for notnliking someone, Pcs Rainier might no, who knows?
Why do you say that his two sistersnwere not happy? They were crying by emotion, it does not mean they were not happy! Sometimes you cry by happiness.
Back to the topic, the ceremony was touching, despite Charlotte's and Andrea's absence. I liked Charlene and Caroline wearing mantilla, but why Stephanie did ot wear? It is not an obligation? In the funeral they both worn.

Princess Stéphanie never wore a hat She wore only a mantilla at the funeral of her father. Charlene and Caroline wore always a mantilla .
Tatiana must give life to her second baby very soon, I think that Andréa prefered to stay near her wife. I understand him.
Perhaps Charlotte had a equestrian race this day.
Pauline and Louis are in USA
But we see that the family was united in the memory of Prince Rainier


Excuse me, I did a mistake in my language, of course, Caroline and Stéphanie were happy during the ceremony of wedding of Albert and Charlene.
1000 excuses.

I dind't expceted a mantilla for Stephanie, to be honest. She even pulled her hair back in a simple bun for Albert's wedding... But if I rembember correcly, she wore one at Ranier's funeral... (And Antoinette's funeral ceremony too)...
