I think you are right Burberry. PG said she was taking a big chance by doing so but went with her instinct. I have a friend who did the same thing (phone instead of letters)and has been married for many years.

Thank you.
On Monaco info you could see Caroline visiting the exhibition.
Wearing pants and a brown blazer she had her glasses on and was quite interested in the photos.

How long is the Caroline portrait exhibition running for? I would love to see it forming part of a permanent exhibition. I wonder if there will be a catalogue too.

Elly C, the exhibition runs untill January 8, 2012. In some way I doubt that Princess Caroline
would agree on such a permanent presentation, too much public worship for her taste..

Is the plane which Albert use HIS plane?
Or was it Rainier's plane and he inherited it?
Who bought it?

Or is it the plane for the head of state belonging to Monaco?

Monaco and France are members of the United Nations World Food Programme.
WFP | United Nations World Food Programme - Fighting Hunger Worldwide

A few days before Christmas, Mme Catena, the WFP Director for France and Monaco, visited the Principality to consult about Development Millennium Objectives.

Present from the Principality were:
Amade Monaco; AMREF Monaco; Caritas; Croix Rouge Monégasque; Monaco Aide et Présence; Programme Free Rice.
Four Monaco Government Councillors were also present.

Accueil*>*Actualités*>*Visite de Mme Marina Catena (PAM) en Principauté(Fr)

A good opportunity to liaise with NGOs, politicians etc.




Until January 8th, the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco will be screening a film about Princess Caroline, at the Villa Paloma part of the Musée.

The film is entitled "Du Rocher à Monte-Carlo - Caroline de Monaco".

We've never seen any of the Grimaldies attending one of the Christmas services in Monaco during the last decades.

As previously mentioned in another thread these are private days/weeks for the family members, we rarely see any
pictures of. Sometimes we are lucky to get paparazzi pics of them in their skiing or beach vacations, but not every
year.

we never see the princely family attending the christmas mass as the english royal family or norway family do it, they attend the mass in privat there is the privat chapell in the palace of monaco (the chapel where we saw Charlene and albert signing the official papers after the wedding), there is the privat chapell in le chateau de Marchais.
We have not many photos on their christmas holidays. Last year, we had the photos of princess Caroline and her children in Rio and photos of prince Albert and Charlene in Egypt. The photos were on newscom but it is not often

Is Alexandra still a protestant or did she convert to catholicism ? she took the "holy communion" at her uncle's wedding.

I think she is still protestant but during the wedding, I saw also the princess Victoria and her husband the prince Daniel tooking the 'holy communion', I believed that sometimes in circonstances, taking the holy communion was allowed in the lutherian religion

Holy Communion is also a Protestant rite. Some Protestant denominations don't offer it at every service, some only twice a year.

As a protestant myself, I've always believed that children (who are protestants) did not have the right to take the holy communion until they are "confirmed" (affirmation of baptism), and she is too young for it. that's why it's a bit weird for me but maybe not all protestants branches are working that way.
