These children are not being raised by Albert or the Grimaldi Family & it would be inappropriate for them to be at official functions. We do not know what kind of private relationship he has with them & that is as it shoud be hence the word private. Although I think he should put his foot down about the mothers including themselves into the visits between him & the children, we don't really know about this except for the pictures we see. I think when or if Albert gets married he might be able to have a better relationship with these children since the mothers don't seem to be able to let go of their connection w/ Albert & move on.

Please remember that this thread is about Monaco's National Day and not Albert and the relationship he has with his children. While it would be great to see them participate in some of the activities...at present they don't. Who knows what the future holds? No one here...so please let's not speculate.

Thank you.

Thanks Tbhrc for the video clip!

I noticed in the church when they were greeting each other during the service (forgive me if it is called something else in the Catholic church, in the Protestant church that is what my church calls it:) ) Stephanie and Caroline never reach out for each other. They shake hands with every person around them except each other.

It is called giving each other the peace (at least that's how it translates from French) and I have to assure you that they were always shaking hands with the priests and everyone close to them. I know what you are trying to get at, but Caro and Steph were very friendly with each other, chatting when they arrived with Albert and walking behind him up the stairs ad all of them were smiling and gesturing after peace giving to the opposite side were the Casiraghis and Antoinettes family were sitting. That was actually to me the nicest moment of the whole mass, because it was the only time I saw every single one of them smile from their heart. So it was simply just not in the cut of the clip. That's all.

Sorry for dragging up this old subject, but does anybody why princess Antoinette didn't attend the national day festivities? I hope she isn't /wasn't ill.

National Day 2007 - Monaco

Post here news and pics about this years Monégasque National Holiday.

Quote:
On November 19th, Monaco celebrates its National Holiday with spectacular fireworks over the harbor the evening before and a mass in the Cathedral the next morning. An excellent opportunity to see the pomp and circumstance of the Principality, visitors can see the Knights of Malta, distinguished ambassadors, consuls and state officials decked out in medal-laden uniforms as they congregate in the Place St. Nicholas after the mass. Then it is off to the Prince’s Palace where onlookers can see the Princely family wave to the crowd from the windows of the palace.

________________________________________________________________

The dates:
From November 18th to 19th, 2007 TRADITIONS
Sunday 18 and Monday 19 November: Events organised as part of the Monegasque National Holiday.

11/19 is right around the corner - I wonder if Andrea, Char, and Pierre will attend this year. Maybe they'll have a special tribute to Pss Grace (to follow events in NYC). Either way, I look forward to pictures and hearing about events.

I predict that we will see......... Prince Albert, Princess Caroline, Princess Stephanie, the Casiraghi trio (they didn't let us down since 2005), and I am sure Elisabeth Ann de Massy and her children will be there, and Princess Antoinette, and maybe Keith Sebastian Knecht, and maybe Chris Le Vine.

I will be surprised to see Charlene there. So far we have seen Charlene with Albert at sports events and galas. But National Day is different. It's always been just family. No friends, not even girlfriends. Just husbands, wives, and children.

I hope to see ........... it would be nice if at least the eldest, or better, all of Stephanie's children make a debut. Louis must be 15 or 16 now. I think he is old enough to handle a little balcony waving..... what do you think?

i don't know...i always read about steph that she didn't want her children to do such "public demonstrations"...she wanted to protect them....but in 2004 or 2005 i can't remember sorry, she let pauline appear in a french tv show ( in fact it was reality tv), it was called "la ferme celibrité" to visit her father daniel.....it's a bit paradoxical...

since nothing....so....

anyway, it would be great to see them take part in the national day's celebrations...for once..

Thanks Iceflower for the pics!
Both Albert and Stephanie look great!
Albert looks like he has lost weight, Stephanie looks beautiful and serene.
I am glad to see her more and more involved in public events.
I think this is very good for her.
