This is a normal thing to be done. At least here in Europe it is. It is an official thing. Like it has been done when Grace died ( or the pope as well). This is not a so called paparazi picture. It's an official photo.

It's very sad to see him anyway. Although I know it will be even more difficult when I'm in Monaco for the funeral.

I'm from Europe too and in my country there is similiar custom. When my aunt died (she had brain surgery so you can imagine how she looked) they opened the coffin & took pics of her. But what is the most sad her daughter had to watch it all. It was horrible.:(

I'm very sorry about your aunt, Enelle.
I just wanted to point out that it is nothing special that these official photos of satesmen and such people in the coffin are published, just 2 or 3 of them for the rest of the world who does not have the chance to walk by the coffin and say goodbye.

It is a pretty common pratice to have an open casket. Even here in America they do it. When my father died, there was an open casket viewing. I know that some pictures were taken by my grandmother, but to be honest, I will most likely never have the desire to look at them. That's not how I want to remember my dad. I want to remember him as a healthy and happy person, not in a casket about to be laid in the ground. For that reason, I feel sorry for Albert, Caroline and Stephanie. But, I understand the reasonings why they do it. For the same reason that they had the Pope lying in state It's to give the public one last chance to see him and one last chance to say goodbye. I guess in a sense, it makes it seem more real. I know that's how I felt when my dad died. It was so surreal, until I looked at him in the casket and realized that yes, he really was gone.

Tribute to Prince Rainier

Polfoto 10-04-2005 Mourners take shelter under umbrellas as they wait in front of Monaco's palace to pay a final tribute to Prince Rainier III, on a rainy Sunday April 10, 2005, in Monte Carlo. The late prince's funeral is to take place on Friday, April 15. (AP Photo/Eric Gaillard, POOL)

On the last photo you can see Baroness Elisabeth Ann de Massy (Prince Rainier's niece) with daughter coming to the Palace.

So sad looking on this photos..and rainy day..:(

With all the conspiracies about Grace's death 20+ years later, even though Rainier's death was a long time coming and of natural causes, part of the reason for the images of his open casket lying in state might be to put such conspiracies to his death to an end. Sort of as "proof" or "evidence" that he has indeed died.

During the days after the Pope's death I read a story on Yahoo news about how it was suspected that Rainier was dead already but that the family wanted to wait a few days before announcing his death so that it wouldn't be split with the attention of the Pope's funeral. A terrible, terrible story but you just never know what people are going to write these days.

Prince Andrew will be there to represent the British Monarchy. Usually Charles would go, as the queen never attends state funerals, but since he'll be on his honeymoon, Andrew will go.

According to the Scandinavian Royals MB it, Prince Joachim will represent the Danish royal contingent.

An "odd" mix of representatives to Rainier's funeral: A queen (Norway), and the younger brothers of two heirs to the throne (Andrew and Joachim for Charles and Frederik).

I would think that for someone of Rainier's position, who was the longest-reigning monarch the heads of each monarchy or their heirs could at least represent their respective families.

Definitly I agree. Heirs must go to the funeral (and also some queens), he was the longest reining monarch!.
I undestand the British Family, they have a lot troubles to get married, but why not Andrew and Wills?
I hope the other Royal houses send heirs or important people

I think that maybe Sofia and Juan Carlos will be in the funeral
