I tend to agree. All of their neighbours struggle with huge economic problems. Maybe they don´t want to provoke with diamonds and luxury... Pity for us, of course, but understandable in this time.

But during the day Events he wore an Uniform with black trousers. As reigning Prince Albert should be entitled to wear the same Uniform than his father.

They showed us that she has a tiara only a few months ago. So I think she might as well wear it.

I don't recalll seeing any of them at any of the events, but I don't seem to remember seeing them in previous years either. I wouldn't really expect them to participate as they aren't Monagasques ( yet!)

Probably they will only attend after an engagement/ Wedding. Charlene also attended the first time last year after the engagement.

A previous poster said that Charlene might have been given the Order of St. Charles but just didn't wear it to the opera. This seems unlikley as if she had it she would have been wearing the daytime insignia at church which is a small medal pinned to the left shoulder. Caroline wore her's so I think it's safe to say that Charlene hasn't been given it yet. I'm just hoping she has it in time for her first big tiara event which is now likely to be abroad.

Exactly, I said he had a unique uniform I have never seen Prince Albert wear which was a little more old-fashioned, black with a standing collar and button-up front. As far as I know, no such version of that uniform existed for formal evening wear and in the photo Rainier wasn't wearing a uniform at all, the rest were and it's the same uniform they still wear today. Albert would either have to change the regulations or have himself a totally unique formal evening uniform made up because people don't like the blue trousers. I'm not wild about it myself, but I don't see either of those happening. Personally, I liked the 19th Century uniforms that were red and white best but I don't see them making a comeback.

Question: does anybody know why the 2 little kids that received Albert, Charlene and Caroline at the Opera are dressed all in white? Face included?

this evening Monaco info shows the giving of the packages to people by Prince Albert, Princess Charlène and princess stéphanie, we notice that the prince and the princesses are very liked, prince Albert and Stéphanie know almost all the people, Princess Stephanie is very humble and parcularly loved by the people. We notice also that princess Charlène understandsvery well the french language and she speak also french with an accent
It is the first time we can watch an event of this sort in living, I hope we will see this event again to morrow, you could watch on monaco info line
I didn't know Charlene was a vegetarian. She does not eat any meat at all?

Stella McCartney said in her interview with Charlotte that she thought people shouldn't even wear fake furs because the representation is the same.

Fake furs are very much alike with the true once. I don't find it that bad if she wears a fur as long as it is Fake. I understand her love about animals as i had been a vegetarian myself.

No, as always they did not attend. A pity but therefore not surprising

I remember having seen a pic (screencap of zdf documentary) of Charlene eating chicken with her hands, in her younger years. But, maybe she is vegeterian now. Or, a sort of a vegeterian. Actually, i don't understand vegetarians very well, because some say they are but they eat fish or chicken. (isn't that, like, white meal?)
But i think there's also a difference between vegan and vegetarian.

Interesting point of what Stella said. Doesn't she design anything with fur, then?

(sorry if i'm going off topic here with furs and vegetarians)

Those vegetarians don't do it because they love animals, but they simply follow a diet which doesn't contain meat but fish. Therefore they do it for their health. There're maany types of vegetarians but i cannot type them here

Thanks.

I do not understand Stephanie's position. OK, when her kids very very young she wanted to protect them but now? At least Louis and Pauline are adults, they live in Monaco, and their very high life of level is mainly due to the Monaco heritage. How could they behavior so indifferent to their position? I think she exagerates. She has only the good points but no obligation??
