Two reasons are possible for her mistake. Either she had wrong advice (even if her valet is îgnorant Caroline and Albert know,..), or SHE decided

If it was a mistake then she would have been told. It isn't about whether people like Charlene or not, it's that some people take all of this far more seriously than the Royals.

This is a royal website. We do discuss these things. "Mistakes" like this are discussed regarding all royals on this site, Charlene has no special immunity. The repeated dismissal of posters and comments who make any comment seen as less than glowing, no matter how constructive, as "not liking" her or "taking it too seriously" are not adding to the discussion and are unfair.

It is absolutely not about liking a royal, it is about the established protocol which has kept these royals different and fascinating. Mistake on her part or the palace, there should be no hurt feelings for simply discussing it! Many here do take royalty seriously. It is a royal website. There should be a place for both and all view points!

That's a necklace she's been wearing since she was a teenager, she must really love it.

I see Charlene didn't wear the male version of the Order of Saint-Charles this time.

Let's not get back into the Swedish wedding fiasco. Trust and believe--whenever there is any type of royal event, there are clear guidelines sent in regard to dress code. HSH Princess Charlene didn't wear any regalia because it was neither required nor looked upon as disrespectful. She looked beautiful and did something different--which Princess Grace did often.

The gala was held in the Grimaldi Centre. This was probably because the opera production (which looks pretty amazing in the extract on the footage) required a stage /infrastructure that the Salle Garnier can't deliver being a much older, smaller theatre. But I did miss the wonderful Royal Box.

Look at where Princess Antoinette is wearing her sash at the gala close to her neck.

I hope the link will work

Possibly the sash moved closer to her neck because of the shape of jacket at the shoulder.

Who is the priest at the opera gala seated with the Grimaldis?

The whole family looks lovely, and I do love to see jewels with a history, and on that note Princess Caroline provided one. :)

I think he is a personal friend of the family. On the night of Albert and Charlene's wedding banquet I saw a picture of him escorting Princess Caroline.

Although we missed Charlotte attending the National Day festivities, what about Stephanie's children? I don't recall seeing any pics, similarly previous years I think(?)

Looking at the fotos on the balcony she appears not to look him in the eye at all and stands with distance between them. But these shots are taken in a matter of seconds with a rapid shutter and we know how media deliberately pick fotos to create gossip.

I just thin and have always felt that she is not completely at ease being in the public eye so I can imagine that this would mean that she certainly would not openly display her affections for her husband on a balcony in front of thousands of people.

More informal fotos show them having a relaxed and warm manner with each other and whilst they are not all touchy feely like Fred and Mary I still think they look pretty rock solid together.

A beautiful photo of the couple during the cermony

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater

On some photos, she is serious and on many photos, she saluted the people or she sent kisses like on this photos or she put her hand on her heart to say them she lives them. and the third appareance to the balcon with Albert she said in french ( Merci) and they left the balcon

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater

But the one I prefere is the one which was published by the palace on the official page of FB but I ask myself why we did not see Andréa and tatiana at the balcon and above all why they did not attend the gala evening?

I think Andrea and Tatiana were at one of the other windows. I saw a picture of them.

Yes that's what I thought. Quite odd given they are Monagasque citizens and have every reason to celebrate the National Day. I noticed members of the De Massey family were there. It would be nice if this were one occasion in the year when the whole family are together.

Agree! Stephanie's children never attended any celeabration with the only exception of the Circus Festival, and, hopefully Pc. Albert wedding.
I found even odd that the 2 olders did not attend Pcs Rainier funeral! They were 13y and 11y old, for me an age you are grown enough to accompany your grand father!
The official reason was that Stephanie wanted them to have a quite and protected childhood! But the 2 older are adults now, Pauline is compeeting, or going to fashion shows! What would be the problem to attend the National day?
