EVERYONE looks great! I love the pics of Princess Alex and Charlotte! Andrea and Pierre, of course, look handsome as always. Princess Caroline - wow - she looks beautiful and elegant from head to toe! Prince Albert looks handsome, as always, and Stephanie looks great, too - her hair has gotten long! The event looks to have been successful....

Thanks to all for the pictures...everyone looks great!

A couple of items of note:

It appears that Stephanie is making a concerted effort to keep her children from Monaco themed events. I can't imagine seeing Pauline, Louis or Camille on the balcony until they get a little older and that is if they choose to do so. Stephanie had a very public growing up and every aspect of her birth, childhood, dating, marriages, divorces, etcs have been dissected and on the cover of tons of tabloids. Is it any wonder if she chooses to shield her children from such a life? Unless something happens to the Casigrahi's, the chances of them suceeding the throne are very silm. So I wouldn't expect to see them on the balcony. In fact, I see them as the future de Massy's: in attendance, low key and supportive of the heirs.

Its great to see Stephanie and Caroline interacting.

Just because we don't see Alexandra with Ernst why are we assuming that they don't see each other? We should also take into consideration that although the paparazzi are usually everywhere, I would hope that Alexandra gets private time with both her parents that we don't see.

To this I would slightly disagree. It is true that Stephanie has always suffered from the public eye in her life, but she also took some profit from this "publicity" Do you think that she would have such a success as a model, or as a swimsuit designer, or a singer, if she was Not the Princess of Monaco. And now she lives a very comfortable life thanks to the Monaco revenues, and these revenues are growing up the last 55 years thanks ALSO to the notoriety of the Princely family. Caroline has understood her obligations, and raised up her children accordingly. Charlotte in example has very fes chances to become the Souvereign, but she participates in the public life.
I understand that Stephanie might not like the public life, but in this case it would be more sincere to live in another spot of the planet, where nobody knows her, and she will not have any advantage of her position.
And do you think that just because Stephanie's children are not participating to the public events, the paparazzis will forget them?

I have to say that despite being very sad not to see Louis, Pauline and Camille with the rest of the family at this particular occasion I agree with Zonk and respect Stephanie's choice.

I totally agree that Stephanie has had the benefit of being a Princess of Monaco and a lot of negative press that she received is a result of her actions. However, perhaps as an adult Stephanie has recognized the shortcoming of being royal and decided to sheild her kids from some of it. If she doesn't take her life into account, she only has to look at the press of her nieces and nephews.

I mean, I as a royal watcher enjoy seeing pictures of the Casigrahi's and Alexandra (now and when they were younger) but don't young children (royal or not) deserve the opportunity to grow up out of the public spot light? I am not sure that Louis, Camille and Pauline will always enjoy this privacy but right now I can take pleasure in the fact that they do. As the Casirgahi's get older and take more public roles, marry and produce children of their own then Louis, Camille and Pauline will surely assume the role of the de Massy, live in the jet set circle, and end up as people we used to know.

I agree with you regarding the privacy. Nevertheless, I do not reallly believe that Steph's children have a real privacy. We just do not see them at the official occasions, but we see them at holidays, and all their every day life. They are just too young and not enough "commercial" yet. As soon as Louis and Pauline will start some flirts or going out with friends, I'm affraid they won't have any privacy at all.

Coming back to the Monaco National Day, I found Alexandra more and more lovely every day. She seems to be a happy girl, enjoying life

You´re right, fandesacs 2003, . I don´t understand how a person who is a member of a reigning family, can opt to have her children "hidden" from public appearances. Most people can have this option, but certainly not a royal or princely person. One thing is to "expose" and commercialize your children, another is to be aware that no matter what, they belong to a different family.

I'd say Louis and Pauline started 'that young people's life' already.

Definetly this year Monaco National Day has been great and a memorable one. It has been nice seeing the family together in the events prior and during National Day, we still have the Opera tonight. Both princesses look stunning, sure one can see time gone by, but isn't that a bit superficial...it's something unavoidable and natural. Although it's always Caroline and Charlotte wearing black, I must say they looked great on this ocassion, especially Caroline. After a series of misses, I can say this is very "old days" Caroline, not to mention she looks very regal and serene. Her hairdo reminds me of her mom during the 50s in Hollywood. Stephanie also looks very serene and supportive.

Alexandra has grown up, and to think 10 years ago she was presented on National Day. Ernst's absence will surely spark lots of comments but I think it's really something that only concerns Princess Caroline and her family, it's not fair for this year's GREAT Monaco National Day to be outshadowed by Ernst's absence or something concerning the life of Prince Albert. This will be a memorable Monaco National Day in the upcoming years...nice to see a bit of the good old days back!

How do they belong to a different family. She simply chooses what events she takes her children to which is a normal thing for a mother to. So far, they usually participate only at the Monaco circus events.

And for that matter, the precedent has been set that reigning families opt to have their children "hidden" from public appearance. You only see the children of the Dutch, Norwegian and Danish families at carefully scripted events (usually a couple of times a year). You very rarely see paparazzi shots of them at all. In fact, I would hazard to guess that the relationship of the paparazzi with the Monaco ruling family is TOTALLY different than those of the Dutch, Danish and Norwegian families. Its more on line with the British Royal Family. So we don't totally derail this thread, I will start one to discuss the paparazzi and the Monaco ruling family.

ETA: There is a thread that pertains to the paparazzi and the Grimaldi's thanks to Kels. We can continue the discussion here The Paparazzi and the Royal Family of Monaco .
