I thought that was Caroline's villa.

As I am going to Monaco in a few weeks I would like to know if there are any public events that any of the Royal family are attending?

July 18th is the Diamond League athletics. ( a good night out ) Albert & Charlene usually present the medals .

I should add that if you don't want to attend the event, it is possible to see the Royal couple as they exit the stadium - each year I have attended, I have seen them saying quite lengthy farewells to the various organisers before getting into the car. So you just need to get to the exterior of the stadium just after the event has finished. It is also worth tuning into Riviera Radio or looking in the Monaco matin while you are on holiday, because members of the family open exhibitions etc. The annual summer exhibition at the Grimaldi centre which starts sometime in July is always officially opened by a senior member of the family - but not always on the first day!

What fun is it to be a monarch if you can't ban someone every once in a while? I love it.

In another thread I mentioned how very few Foreign orders members of the Princely Family held asides from their own Monegasque Orders.

I had a look and I don't think HSH Prince Albert has had any Foreign Royal orders bestowed on him since his accession in 2005.I find that strange given his close relationship with many of the Royal Houses of Europe.Both Albert & Caroline were given the 1996 King Carl XVI Gustaf 50th Anniversary Medal but that seems to be it.


The late Prince Rainier III was held the following Royal orders
Knight of the Order of the Seraphim (Sweden)
Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the Redeemer (Greece)
Knight Grand Cross of the Royal Order of George I (Greece)
Grand Cordon of the Order of Leopold (Belgium)
Knight of the Order of the Gold Lion of the House of Nassau (Netherlands)
Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the Karađorđe's Star (Kingdom of Yugoslavia)

Yes it is strange. There doesn't appear to be any explanation why and when these orders are gifted. On a similar note, who in other royal families has been presented with Monaco orders ?

Orders are usually bestowed in the framework of a State Visit. There are hardly any State Visits to or from Monaco. Recently the Prince of Monaco made a visit to the Netherlands, see picture:
http://www.rtlnieuws.nl/sites/defaul...?itok=2LGK6XAH

This was no State Visit and no Orders were exchanged. Most likely the answer on the very few Orders lies in this. The Order in the Golden Lion of the House Nassau, mentioned on the list, is a joint Dutch-Luxembourgian Order by the way. Both the King of the Netherlands (Chef of the House Orange-Nassau) and the Grand Duke of Luxembourg (Chef of the House Nassau) are Grandmaster of this Order.

Many thanks Duc et Pair the lack of State Visits by the Monegasque Princely Couple would explain the non existent Foreign Royal Orders!

But that leads me to a further question as to why the Monaco family do not participate in many state visits. Albert/Charlene/ Caroline attend most of the important state occasions of European royals i.e.(weddings/anniveraries and funerals) and there's a lot of diplomatic ties with other countries.

An interesting report about the Princely family selling items from their Napoleonic collection.
A small comment indicates this is to make way for a new museum dedicated to Princess Grace.

Monaco is really small, it has only 30.500 inhabitants. I mean, Wassenaar, the lush residential municipality bordering The Hague, where the Dutch King Willem-Alexander has his private domain already has the same number of inhabitants... It is just a tiny dot on the map crowded by über-wealthy non-monegasques. It is for the same reason that the principalities of Liechtenstein, Andorra and San Marino also receive no State Visit. The Holy See can not be compared with the three named principalities as they "employ" around 400.000 priests, 700.000 sisters, 60.000 monks, "servicing" 1.300.000.000 catholics in all possible corners of the Globe.

San Marino is not a principality. It has always been a republic.

I find it incredible they are selling the whole collection - I found a couple of references online suggesting there is a great deal of unhappiness in the museum world that this collection is being split up, and that France is trying to secure most of it.
It is/was on exhibition in a wing of the Palace and much as I would welcome a museum to house the wonderful collection relating to Princess Grace, I am suprised that this supercedes the historic importance of the Napoleonic collection. I wouldn't have thought Monaco plc was short of a few bucks to have both. I guess it's clear though which will brings in the tourists.
