An Ard Ri, ICAM. Can those Grimaldi women rock a mantilla or what?! They even have little Alexandra in one!

It's all very Old World.

And someone better tell the Charlene thread that she didn't take communion so it looks like she's Protestant again (sigh), of course neither did Caroline which surprised me.
Perhaps there was no time for confession re: Charlene and Caroline.

It is such a sad occasion, but it is good to see everyone together. That's one thing to be said for funerals...they bring people together. It was good to see Alexandra. She is growing up so fast. I missed the broadcast, but hopefully I can find it somewhere. I would like to see Melanie's speech.

Good point KA. Maybe they are one of those conscientous Catholics who refuse to receive the Eucharist unworthily?

In any case I am not convinced that CW ever did convert. Or maybe most of the family did not take communion out of solidarity with CW so she wouldn't feel awkward?

I know. It's a long shot!

Not many members of Antoinette's family seem to have attended.
Only Elisabeth, Melanie, Christian, his wife and one of his sons.
Or maybe they were not photographed?

^Maybe. There are more pics of Charlene than anything. Photographers seem to be interested only the Princely Couple.

Yes, the occasion must evoke many memories of previous losses & the funerals which were held in the same Cathedral. It is good to see the whole family together.

Purepeople.com gallery: Albert, Charlene et le tout-Monaco unis dans le deuil pour l'adieu à Antoinette...
Charlotte seems so sad... I'm a bit ashamed to say this because poor Charlotte was at funerals but I find her very beautiful on these pics.
Did Alex, Tatiana and Beatrice attend the funerals?

I spoke too soon

I think these are Jean-Leonard Taubert Natta (son of Elisabeth), behind him the 2 oldest daughters of Sebastien Knecht, behind them Sebastien Knecht (son of Christine Alix) and his wife Donatella and behind them Leticia de Massy (daughter of Christian) and her husband Thomas de Brouwer

And in this picture next to Christian is I think his youngest son: http://www.purepeople.com/media/la-p...ecedee_m584359

Yes it is nice tradition I also hope they keep it, there are some another royal (for example Belgium) or nobility families in which woman use to wear veil for funeral.

It looks like Pierre is holding his little sister's hand. That's so adorable.
