You should ask whether MC is bigger than the White house . No, we don't have so much space here, so it is not really big. There is a lot underground though. I think the Monegasques have evolved from the mole, not from the monkey. You wouldn't believe what they manage to put underground, and it is all rock underneath, so pretty tedious and costly to remove. THe Grimaldi Forum took them for ever to built, because almost every thing is underground. ANd it is massive (not very pretty site though).

Caroline and Ernst out and about - Caroline signing autographs



Sorry, i don't want to go off track here but I saw this pic of Caroline signing autographs. I thought royals are not allowed to do this, or at least they are not meant to, maybe i am wrong.

Why? There is a thread about Monaco Family's signed pics and autographs...

I have seen PA sign autographs as well and there used to be pics of Steph with autographs send out by the service du prince for quite some time. I don't know whether they still do it, but they used to ( I think while she was still doing her singing)

Why would you have left the family members pics out?
They play an imortant role in the Palace daily life, don't they?:)

They still do it as far as I know. Stephanie signs autographs when asked politely. Once I made a trip to Cap d'Ail and Monaco with schoolmates. We had lunch at the Replay Café, Stephanie was there too working at the bar. They boys asked her to sign their newly baught AS Monaco t-shirts ... she signed them all, joking with the boys ...:)

Great thread, Sebastian! :) Some of fame goes to your sister, too, for posting those great Christmas pics!:p :)

Some small contribution..

Mr. Raimondo, the ex-official driver of Princely family, has made a short visit to Palace's garage to see Daimler Officielle MC2 he has driven..


Mr. Mantovani; the florist at the Palace, "maintaining" Palace's winter garden where Princess Caroline did some of her moddeling photosessions..


Mr. Bertaux, the restaurateur of Monaco Palace's paintings;


Mr. Grassi, the bird-keeper..

Do Caroline and Stephanie have apartments at the palace? I know they don't live there full time but where do they stay when they are in residence?

Of course they do :) It only came to my mind as we have family member pics everywhere and that could have put all those people that are normally NOT seen into the centre of attention. That's all :)

And Sebastian, I don't mind, keep on singing for me

Ianna, great addition with proud Mr. Raimondo :)
