You're absolutely right - I'd completely forgotten that cornflowers are commemorative flowers for the armistice in France (which I shouldn't have, because it was mentioned on the news over here around Remembrance Day!). The royal guard in this photo behind Stephanie is wearing one too, and President Macron is also wearing the same cornflower badge here (including the French colours).

Aaah, India tiptoeing to peek and Stefano inserting himself between the balusters and waving... too adorable. Happy to see this generation participating together in National Day events. Pierre is one hot papa, Beatrice looks proud of Stefano who looks like her twin, Andrea and Tatiana look like old hands at this parenting stuff at this point, they both look like a solid couple, Alexandra is such a preppy, Pauline's outfit is interesting but she looks skinnier than usual and older than she is, Maximilian looks like India, and Francesco looks more like Pierre. The twins are gorgeous, you can tell they have charmed lives, and will have the world at their feet. All the adults could use more smiles on their faces, though Caroline does look happy with her bunch. This year's outfits seem very formal and "royal" compared to previous years //end of ramble lol

On the occasion of the National Day, Teresa Guerra and Manuel Salazar were decorated by Prince Albert for their commitment and dedication to Fight Aids Monaco. Princess Stephanie as President of Fight Aids Monaco was present as well:
