The women look amazing, Stephanie does look quite a bit older.
Albert looks quite wary of the fact he is surrounded by 2 powerful and strong women.

I think all this talk about aging is a matter of perspective. Yes, Steph has a lot of wrinkles for her age, but when I look at her, especially when she smiles, I see a very youthful person!

Caroline and Stephanie have a young spirit in spite of their wrinkles.

During today's medal ceremony, Sebastian already posted 3 pics
of, the sibblings' cousin Elisabeth Anne de Massy was honored
with a medal as well. That's really great to see in my eyes as
she supports the family's work that much!

Oh yes, Iceflower, I am also of you opinion; this is a gentle gesture of Price Albert, and Elisabeth Anne de Massy deserves this honour.

I'm glad that Elizabeth Ann was honored with a medal, she deserves it due to her contributions and support to several events and foundations in Monaco, specially the Animal Society which her mother has supported all these years.

It's great to see the 3 Grimaldi siblings together on this ocassion, they all are doing a great job like always.

Pics 18.11.2009

Looking at your time zone I think you still are a bit too early, Bones.

The National Day (Fête du Prince) itself is on November 19, Prince
Rainier's name day. All the other events are arranged around that day


First wonderful pics from today:


Princess Stephanie of Monaco at the Foyer of Rainier III to distribute
presents to Monaco citizens on November 18, 2009 in Monaco.

I'm sure they'll be. Tomorrow.
Now The Grimaldi siblings are doing the traditional: giving presents, medals...
but I'm sure the Casiraghis will appear tomorrow.

There are two main Orders - the Order of Saint Charles, and the Grimaldi Order. with three grades in each - Commander, Officer and Knight.

Elisabeth-Ann de Massy is now Commander of the Grimaldi Order because of her services to tennis.

Other Commanders: the President of Monaco Football Club, the President of the Supreme Tribunal, the General Director of UNESCO and the Monaco Consul in Geneva.

Officers and Knights:

Michael Smurfit (who is trying to get PA to Ireland); PA's own lawyer Thierry Lacoste; the Monaco Consuls at Duesseldorf, Antwerp, Istanbul, Rotterdam, the Czech Republic, Brussels, Quito and the Bahamas.
The Executive Director of UN AIDS; The director of the Princess Grace Theatre; a director of the Grimaldi Forum.

A nice touch was to give a medal to the Mayor of Ventimiglia (Vintimille) next door, right on the Italian border. It's where many Monegasques and French do their shopping!

The list is not complete and contains many government officials, bankers etc. and a sprinkling of those working in environmental organisations.

I´m sorry but, those comments about wrinkles and aging are so annoying. Everyone is entitled to say whatever they want, but what´s the point in making such statements. Time passes for everyone, let´s comments on the poitive thing.

Thanks for the links, queenofthelight! The French one
that links to purepeople.com contains a great pic of
Caroline during a medal ceremony today. The blue room
always looks very impressive!

Here's another version of that pic : Caroline

Exactly, the blue room looks always very impressive. Besides, blue is a colour that suits Caroline very well, so...Having blue behind her...makes just a nice pic

LA SALLE DU TRONE is beautiful. But why everyone is in black? It looks so depressing... Was it the same last year?

I realized that later though in my defense I was just reading the thread and saw where someone had posted it was the 18th. Later I thought that didn't seem right, so I double checked and sure enough -I goofed. Oh well, in the old days the National Day was always St Devote day. That was when the first National Day celebrations were held in 1857 (I think) but somewhere down the line it was changed to St Rainier day. So, anyway, Happy National Day again! (hope we see some parade and balcony photos soon)
