Monaco Palace Life - Behind the scenes

I hope it is alright to make up a new thread for this.
It's a dossier/report about life at the Monaco Palace - life of the Princely Family.
Over several years life at the Monaco Palace and with the princely family has been documented in pictures. Members of the family have been accompanied in their daily duties and some pictures showing how things work behnind the Palace walls are documented.
Following photos by Sipa/ BdP

I hope some of you will also contribute to this thread by adding their thaughts, opinions and information ...

Thanks, Sebastian, quite an extraordinary collection of the other side of the palace life we hardly see around. Plus, I always wanted to see other Monaco residents :)

Maybe we can have other threads like this one? Sebastian has given us one fascinating collection that actually humanizes the palace life more than any official photos. We are able to see the people who maintain the place as it is, the daily behind the scenes work of princes and officers, etc.

But do they have different names for the Palace? I recalled it was called The Grimaldi Palace and The Prince Palace or something like that? Why do they have different names?

Well, some tabloids sometimes call it the Gromaldi Palace.
The correct name is Palais Princier or Palais du Prince ( Prince's Palace) :)
