I'm hoping there will be live coverage on CNN. I think it switches over to CNN International after a certain time because when I've watched before there's been a whole different layout and British hosts in the early hours. Maybe international will cover it. Even though the news channels are quite American centered there is the American connection with Princess Grace.

"From the chapel, the VIPs will be escorted to the palace’s official reception hall, the ornate Blue Salon, to pay condolences to Rainier’s son and heir, Prince Albert II, and his daughters, the Princesses Caroline and Stephanie.

A public procession begins at that point, beginning with visiting guests. VIPs will walk across the palace’s cobbled square and down a narrow lane now hung with Monaco’s flags at half staff to the nearby 19th century Monaco cathedral.

As Rainier had requested, 10 soldiers from the Prince’s Company of Carabineers will bear his coffin out of the palace via the Gate of Honour shortly before noon (1000GMT), crossing a square filled with up to 3,000 mourning Monaco residents, before reaching the cathedral.

Members of the royal family will follow the procession as a band plays Beethoven’s Funeral March – music chosen by Princess Caroline. A battery will fire a 36-gun salute for Rainier, who had been Europe’s longest-serving monarch."

..part of article from Scotsman..

I went on www.palais.mc, watched short insert..it's good conection..the direct broadcast starts in few minutes at 10.00a.m. my time..

Monaco would like to chat but my lessons will start in 15 minutes.:(

@HMQueenElizabethII; you're welcome..

Personalities are arriving already on the Palace in cars, they're going into the Court De Honour, to the Palace's Chapel and up through the staircase probably to the Blue Room like the Palace said yesterday to meet the family.

Some royals will go to Monaco from Nice in car or helicopter. At 11:45 (approx. in 1h 30 min) we'll see the family starting the procession.

The Prince and Princess of Monaco will lead it as well as the Casiraghi children, no sign of Stephanie's kids.

Queen Sofia won't attend. Charles of Austria has just arrived.
