Thanks for the great stuff, Michelle!

LadyMac, I love your postings. I'd like to contact you to ask you a couple of questions. No member of the Monaco 's family involved.
Will you, please email me? Thanks!

Stephanie - Monaco's minister for social affaires

Caroline - Monaco's minister for cultural affaires

Caroline takes care of the Grimaldi clan. She reunited the whole family around her - for lunch and dinner at the Palais Princier - where Andrea, Charlotte, Pierre, Ernstie and Christian took care of and looked after Louis, Pauline, Camille and Alexandra.
The two sisters - distant some time before - share intimete moments.

Stephanie and her aunt 'Tini' Antoinette felt the need to eclipse themselves from the family circle frm time to time - to walk side by side, in silence and remeber.

Bernard Montiel: " In August, at the Red-Cross-Gala, Stephanie watched her father with love and admiration - extrordinary. I couldn't keep myself from saying: ' Hey, Steph....what a complicity between you and your daddy!' - With this 'little-girl-expression' in her eyes she answered: ' Mais oui, c'est mon papounet' ( Yes, he's my papounet)."

Albert and Caroline will take care of Stephanie. They would never let her down - like she would never let them down.
People will surely be surprised by Stephanie's positive role in Monaco, the positive role she'll assume in the future.


Pictures:

1. Moment of seperation - Prince Albert and his sisters accompany their father in their prayers.
2. Andrea, Charlotte, Pierre, Ernstie and Christian pray and send their deepest thought to Louis, Pauline, Camille and Alexandra, considered to be too young for such a painful public funeral. ( confirmed Ernstie later)
3.Princess Stephanie's eyes filled with sadness
4.Stephanie looks tenderly at her sister, whom she knows in double pain with the sickness of her hsuband
5.Ernstie silently follows his step-mom
6.Prince Albert suronded by two of his five nephews
7.Andrea and Pierre behind their uncle Albert, now head of the family
8. Prince Albert and his younger sister holding hands in these so difficult moments
9. Princess Caroline talking silently to her sister on their way out of the cathedral
10. Caroline,Ernstie,Albert, Charlotte, Mélanie, Sebatian, Andrea, Stephanie, Pierre, Elisbeth-Anne (invisible because behind Pierre) and Jean-Léonard - ( Christian accompanied Antoinette and was therefore already in the cathedral )
Thank you for making this tribute with so much dignity.
In the 3rd photo you can see Stephanies' blue eyes. Her eyes are so incredebly blue .

Does anybody know who was with Prince Rainier when he died? I heard that Albert was called in the early hours but did he make it in time? Also I read somewhere that Stephanie had been sleeping by her fathers bedside in the last few days of his life so does anybody know if she was there at the end? I guess that Caroline was problably with Prince Ernst August as he had just been taken into hospital? Thanks!

Well, as this is a very private matter nobody ill ever know for sure. Yes, Albert was called - and I think they said he made it in time.
Stephanie was said to have been there all night - and it is very likely that she was - not sure though .

Stephanie looks devastated so does Caroline but looking at the pics of Stephanie is so sad makes you want to cry I hope Caroline and Albert gave her a lot of love . just thought Stephanie did not go to her Mothers funeral she may have been thinking back to her mother .

I don't understand why the spanish press always translates the names of the royals into spanish.
The name is something personal and nobody has the right to translate it into another language.

Ok great, I quote my own post ... but I have to come back to these pictures of Ernst jr. and Chris. I almost can't get over the look in Christian's eyes.... I was thinking back to the funeral and remember ( and Seb told me the same...as he was there he knows it exactly) the moment they all left the cathedral and took a last bow in front of Rainiers coffin... Caro left with Steph at her side, Andrea with Charlotte, Pierre with Ernst jr. ... and Christian was waiting for Antoinette and together with mélanie he was holding her arm as they walked out ... just as before the ceremony he was already there with her ( Antoinette) while the rest of the family followed the coffin ( that's why you can see a photo of Chris walking to the cathedral alone in another post above) ... this gesture he made there is incredibly sweet I think ... it's such a nice thing to have a family member do this indtead of some carabinier or Valet du Palais .... anyway it must have been endlesly painful for Chris and Ernsti to lithese moments even more so as their Dad couldn't be there and was seriously ill...

I think all the boys are real gentlemens! It's no doubt that Princess Antoinette appreciate that very much!

there will be a memorial service on April 6th 18.30h in the cathedral with the family attending. though apart from maybe a few flowers laid down at the graves it will be a pretty regular memorial service.
