I loved seeing Charlene at ND. She looked so chic and it was the perfect engagement for her to sign off on maternity leave from. I think that Trooping the Colour was Kate's last engagement before she had George and that was also nice as I think it creates an even bigger sense of anticipation of the birth when the last event a pregnant princess attends is a big national occasion.

At least we can watch some more videos (also including one of Princess Stephanie presenting the gifts).

At thw 5th video ( Célébration du Te Deum / Videos / Monaco Info : Les Reportages / Chaines - MC Channel - Chaînes vidéos de Monaco ) I noticed that Caroline's knee has a problem (1:00 - 1:15 min).

I have no idea how a family as scandal ridden as the Grimaldis always maintains such a perfect public image of regal beauty, elegance and serenity. I can't help it-they fascinate me more than any other dynasty on this Forum by far.

Caroline looked simply amazing.

Is there any video showing the family outside the palace lined up to watch the guards?

Maybe this fascination emerges precisely from its scandalous touch. And, after all, the scandals that keep surrounding the Grimaldi family are all about its members ( namely the princesses ) wanting to live their lives as any one of us would do... They're not financial scandals, drug scandals or any other criminal scandals... They're just normal rebellions any normal teenager or young adult would have about wanting to live their romantic and sex life the way they choose to. And i think it's precisely this longing for «normality» that fascinates us. Instead of the cold, distant princesses ( and princes ) of other dynasties we have passionate, affectionate royals we can indeed relate to. They approach us in their wish of living like any other flesh and blood individual. We suffer with their grief because it could easily be our grief, we rejoice with their happiness because we have the same happy moments in our lives... Or to make a long story short: we love them because they're adorable!!!

The Choir during the Te Deum/Mass were amazing,does anyone know what hymn they were singing when Prince Albert II was seated and everyone else was standing?

An Ard Ri, they were singing the traditional Hymn for the Sovereign that is sung at every Te Deum in Monaco. It is hauntingly beautiful. The first time I heard it was when I watched Princess Grace's Requiem Mass in 1982. I remember that Rainier just sat there and cried and cried while it was chanted. I wish I could find a recording of it.

lazuli, you expressed my feelings about this family better than me. I have been fascinated by them since I was a child. I idolized Princess Caroline.

Well they are certainly no more scandal ridden than the Windsors and any scandal that has occurred has not involved Charlene.

Really? That's odd. I know I've seen Stephanie singing it in the past. Caroline's children too.
