I liked Caro's Chanel white chiffon or crepe pleated gown. I liked her chinchilla fur coat and earrings.She looked appropraiate to go the opera and I like her hair.
A comment about Charlotte. She has a hard countenace and I have rarely seen her smiling broadly about anything.Appears she is quite serious.Alexandra is as cute as a button.
I too wish Stephano could have been there.
Pa seemed to be enjoying the events as usual and cruising through naturally and as a leader should.

Shame about the chinchilla coat especially as it is not necessary in the warm climate of Monaco !

The Casiraghi didn't attend, a shame.
Caroline looked fantastic. She looked awesome in all day, at day and night.

Wow, Caroline looks old! Elegant and royal but so old... And I don't mean AT ALL that she should look like a 30 year old, please dont get me wrong. She looked splendid a few months ago and I love the natural and elegant way she is ageing.
What I mean is that she looks 10 years older than 6 months ago, like a lady in her middle sixties. She must have been through a really hard time lately.


Nothing weird imo about Alexandra wearing black. It would maybe be a bit weirder for everyday clothes, but a child dressed in black velvet for a party or a ceremony is cute and totally normal.

I don't really get the "during a period". Top-less sunbathing is always extremely common in Europe, at least in the places usually go.

Please stop the constant lecturing. People in Europe smoke and wear fur as a normal think. And the Grimaldi and Casiraghi do too. Stop trying to make us do things the american way. So much repetitive criticism is starting to be offensive. Foutez-nous la paix!

The comment was made by someone living in Europe (i.e. Belgium) not the United States! Make sure your facts are straight before you start making assumptions!

A pity the Casiraghis didn't attend the Opera, but Caroline looked great, she somehow reminded me of her mom.

Not venturing into the fur debate, but I guess there shouldn't be a lot of criticism due to the fact that this is a coat she has worn in the past...if I'm not mistaken she wore to 1998's Circus Festival, and I think also in the 80s. The women in the family have inherited several furs from both Princess Grace and Princess Charlotte, so it doesn't strike me they wear it...at least they're wearing some "old" fur. And when we see new new fur coats on them, who knows if it's fake.

Best Monaco National Day in years!

Sorry, I disagree with you. I live in Greece (Europe....) and I'm against smoking and against wearing furs, and I do not consider this is an american way, it is MY way, and many people's way independantly to the place we live.

Most of the European countries have banned smoking from the public areas, it means that not everyone appreciates smoking! and it is not soo normal anymore!

As regards the Monaco family, YES they smoke and they wear fur, but you can see smoking effect in Caroline's face. Of course it is HER choice, but do not say that it is absolutely normal.

Now the young generation. Charlotte recently has participated in a forum-movement for ecological clothes. I hope that after that she wont' have the hypocrisy to wear furs....

And please allow me to say that "te foutre la paix" is quite stong, everyone has it's opinion and the right to express it.

It is everywhere allowed, but less less commom than 10 years ago, especially after all this discussion for the sun risks.

Okay...let's get back on topic and stay away from discussing furs and smoking. As previously mentioned, everyone has their own opinion and can decide for themselves if they are pro or anti anything.

We are not here to debate the pros and cons of either (smoking and/or furs).

Any and all future posts regarding this will be deleted without notice. And most importantly, if you disagree with a particular opinion, lets be civil about it.

Regards,

Zonk

Oh, what I didn't like was Elisabeth De Massy's outfit. I think she was the lady standing next to Albert in the Opera with that big white cross in her outfit....I definitely didn't like it.

Nothing against Princess Antoinette's branch of the family, especially since they have contributed a lot to the Principality, but seeing Elisabeth Ann and Melanie next to their cousins and the Casiraghi children shows how much magic and prestige Grace Kelly's genes have brought to this Princely Family.

Caroline's posture is so Grace as well as Charlotte's bone structure.

To coincide with Monaco National Day, Nice-Matin (MonacoMaVille) set up a conversation between Stéphane Valéri (President of the National Council) and Georges Marsan (Mayor). The topic: What is the national Monégasque identity?

[My summary of the article]
G.M.: The attachment to the princely family and to our traditions, the red and white of our flag, symbols of Monégasque unity.
Being proud and attached to our roots. To belong to an ancestral history, and to have conserved our values and culture over the centuries. Also the success of our socio-economic model, and having more than 140 foreign nationalities in our country.

S.V.: Attachment to the Sovereign Prince, his family, and the constitutional monarchy. The feeling of belonging to a heritage community with more than seven centuries of history in the same place, which has conserved its traditions, language, its independence. Sharing the same identity, belonging to a nation, though small, with a strong identity.

To summarise in three words:
GM: A big family, national cohesion, openness and solidarity.
SV: Constitutional monarchy, social wellbeing, exceptional security for people and their belongings.

It looks like the same dress except in a different color. The Rose Ball dress was pink, this one appears to be a shimmery blue!
