I just saw on Monaco info that there will be showing a lot of activity around the Fete Nationale.
Now showing Prince Albert honoring people with the Medailles D'Honneur aux Benevoles.
Tomorrow at 10:30 it starts with Charlene and Stephanie handing out gifts to the Red Cross. And after this nearly the whole day they'll show something!

I can't post anything on the National Day 2011 yet. But I found something interesting: the schedule, and I think that's the program at Monaco info for the days. So maybe one of the mods can place it there!

Here are two pics of the medal ceremonies at the Princely Palace yesterday, November 15.

The first pic shows Prince Albert with the receivers of the Médailles d’Honneur aux Bénévoles
- the medals of honour for the volunteers, on the second pic you can see retired palace staff
members who were honoured for their work.

I wonder if he will make his wife a Dame Grand Cross of the Order of St. Charles as part of the National Day celebrations. I think it would be a nice time to do so.

Don't think me wrong, but...did Charlene do something that worths she receives that order, or just because she is the wife of the Sovereign she has to receive it?

Well her late mother in law received the Order of St Charles after her civil wedding ceremony so I would suggest being the Consort of the Sovereign Prince is qualification enough......much like in any other monarchy. Guess we will have to wait to see her wearing the order to know what Albert has decided.

Mary of Denmark received and was pictured wearing The Danish Order of the Elephant before she even married Prince Frederick and Daniel Westling received and wore The Order of the Seraphim on his wedding day. Likewise in Britain Prince Philip received the Order of the Garter before marrying Princess Elizabeth in 1947 ie if you are a senior Royal you don't have to EARN your stripes!

Ok, i guess then we'll see her wearing the Order in the Opera Gala. Or in the Balcony? I think if she has it, she'll wear it on the Opera Gala. With the Ocean Tiara. I would suppose that.
Is it Stephanie or Caroline that has one of those Orders? of St Charles or of Grimaldi. I think i read it somewhere but i'm not sure.

Caroline received the Order of St Charles from her father. She received the Order of Cultural Merit from Albert. Stephanie received the Order of the Grimaldi from Albert.

Is the thin red and white Order sash we've seen in portraits of Grace the Grimaldi Order or The Order of St. Charles? Never knew Monaco had more than the one till I started reading the postings in this thread. Thanks for the new info Everyone, as my knowledge of Monaco and her Royals is pretty basic. :o)

I also had no idea of the Grimaldi women wearing orders

Edit: I'm watching Monaco info right now but they don't seem to go live, at least not now.

Wonderful photographs. Charlene has become quite a busy Princess indeed. Good for her as she really seems to be enjoying her new role. Nice to see Princess Stephanie with them as well.
