Does anyone know if the Princesses have Ladies in waiting?
I haven't seen any Lady around Charlene. And what about Caroline or Stephanie?

Virginia Gallico was Grace's lady in waiting and she's still around
Palace administration - Prince

If I recall correctly, Virginia Gallico was born Virginia Curtis-Bennet, daughter of Sir Noel Curtis-Bennet (member of the International Olympic Committee for Great Britain from 1933 to 1950). She married firstly to Baron Eduard Alexandrovich von Falz-Fein, vice president of Liechtenstein Olympic Committee for some years, and also sponsor of the research on the identification of the Romanov family remains.
After divorcing from Falz-Fein, she married as his fourth wife to writer Paul Gallico and moved to Monaco, where she still lives.

I think Princess Caroline continued to have Virginia Gallico as her lady in waiting.

Correct. To add some info:
Her marriage to Baron Eduard produced a daughter who was a dancer in London for many years, Ludmila. Ludmila married in 1979, and moved to Monaco, giving up her dancing career.{Source} Her second husband Paul died in 1973. I believe Virginia and the Baron divorced in 1962, 'cause she married Paul on 19 June 1963.

Virginia is still working at the palace as Lady in waiting, she's listed as Dame d'Honneur on the french version of the site and as Lady-in waiting on the English verison. I believe she started working at the palace around the late 1970s, around the time when her daughter married and moved to Monaco in 1979. Virginia can often be seen at MND, behind the family when they are downstairs thanking the cabiners for their service (See here, the woman directly behind Caroline. you can barely see her.).

She is also one of Princess Alexandra's godmothers (Alexandra for her paternal aunt, Charlotte for her half-sister, Ulrike for a family friend (or was that for a former German nanny?), Maryam for a good friend of Caro's and EAs, and Virginia for Virginia Gallico.)

Thanks. I'm working on an article on the Ladies-in-waiting to royals for a friends (CasiraghiTrio, Nathalie Cox) and my online blog on royal families and happen to come across that info the other day.

Are you sure it wasn't at Le Roc Angel? I know he had new tennis courts put up at Le Roc Angel a year or so ago.
There are three pools in Monaco that are frequented by the Princely family:
1. The Beach Club pool
2. The Palace pool
3. Stade Nautique Prince Rainier III (the one that celebrated it's 50th anniversary fairly recently.)

So this means if Princess Charlene wants to swim she has the pool all to herself because it's closed for the Princely family?

There has always been a pool in the grounds of the palace and of course this pool is not open to the public.

Thanks for the info. I didn't know there was a pool inside the palace.
But I guess every good palace has a pool inside

The palace pool is in the back yard and was there when Prince Albert was a child. There is a video of him jumping into the pool as a teenager and one of Andrea when he was about 2 years old.

According to MONACO TODAY, the big boat this year is Stephen Stielbergs:
Quote:
Spielbergs big boat one star of the show

The 86-metre Seven Seas is expected to be close to the Monaco Yacht Show over the next few days, reminding those who see her that Steven Spielberg is never far away. Needless to say, the boat comes with its own cinema and a 250 square metre ballroom. There are also four guest suites and two VIP suites, not to mention the owners own sumptuous quarters. The Seven Seas is powered by two 4,680hp/3,492 kW MTU engines can reach speeds of up to 20 knots.
