Thank you very much for posting the great pics, Avalon. Every year it's so wonderful to see Steph and Albert together with the kids, it's a wonderful tradition and so special for the kids to have that extra Christmas at the palace..

It looks this Christmas party for kids was organized at children's care home not at palace.
The traditional Christmas party for children that is organized every year at princely palace will be on Wednesday.
I wonder what it is children's care home Foyer Sante Devote? Is it an orphanage?

This seems to be a regular thing the Grimaldi's do every Christmas. I think it's nice they give presents to citizens. Is is just poor people that get presents? How do they decide who gets to receive them? Thanks.

Thanks for all the great pics, me too I had to smile about that belt the only one I missed was Caroline, but maybe we'll see her there next year again.. What I always love are the crowds of kids at the palace, so here are some more pics from l'agence:

Santa
crowd of children
Is that one for me?
