Monaco Orders & Monograms

There is the Grimaldi family order that we all have seen but are there any others? I thought I read that Albert has an order of St. Charles also?

As far as I'm concerned all the members of the Grimaldi family have the Order of St. Charles. I'm not sure if Stephanie has it though but I think probably yes.

The Order of St. Charles I think is the one the family gives to distinguished Monegasques before National Day in the Palace.

There are three orders, of which the St. Charles is the most prestigious. Albert did not receive it until his 21st birthday. The others are the Order of the Crown (2nd most prestigious) and then the Order of Grimaldi. There is also an Order of Cultural Merit, I believe (which does not have a star and sash like the other three, but is a medal).

Thanks!

Hello all!

Has anyone seen the monograms for Prince Rainier, Princess Caroline, Prince Albert, and Princess Stephanie? I have seen the late Princess Grace's with the forward and backward "G". I thought it was quite ingenious given that most royal mongrams just use the first name. In the case of the late Princess, it fitted her name - Grace Grimaldi.

Thanks so much!

Prince Rainier's monogram is 2 "R"s. I think Princess Caroline's is 2 "C"s and Prince Albert's 2 "A"s.
