I'd say it's a rock style and I like it overall, understand it as a concept, but Gabriella's dress doesn't fit it at all.

It seems it is the 25th anniversary of something, may it be the Louis II Stadium being home of AS Monaco?

Yesterday, March 11, Prince Albert and Beatrice attended the annual graduation ceremony for first aid organized by the Monegasque Red Cross.

Beatrice seems to have taken part in the course as well, as she received an envelope as well:

It strikes me what good fortune it is that there is such a strong bond between Albert and his siblings and their respective families who frequently accompany him on engagements. Otherwise there would likely to be more comments about the number of engagements he performs without his consort.

Yes he is lucky to have a pool of family members available seeing as his consort is missing 99% of the time .

Prince Albert and Princess Stephanie seem to have a strong bond.

His wife has gone from doing little to almost nothing at all now. Don't know why she married him.

To have legitimate heirs of his own branch.IMO
He needs someone docile enough to fade in the background after the birth of the heirs. He doesn’t need a princess. Hes got his sisters.

Charlene lived a quite long relationship with prince Albert before they got married and she should have gain a full conscience about the exact requirements of her future job.... We cannot say she realized after. Unless it was a kind of agreement between them I find quite unfair that she literally leaves him alone to his tasks. Of course he has his sisters but he needs his wife in his side.

Seems a shame though. Most monarchs/Princes/Heirs and Spares seem to enjoy having someone to lean on with the workload in public and private and not just siblings. Maybe there's a reason or maybe it really does work for them but it does seem a bit odd she's rarely with him yet can make all these solo trips herself.

Why would he want a wife/consort to fade into the background?

Completly agree with you!

He always looked a bit lonely doing his engagements before he was married. It's ridiculous that he has a wife and is STILL on his own.

I have often wondered if the Prince’s sisters had something to do with Princess Charlene not always being present at events. The sisters have stood in as a wife substitute for so long they might not want to have given up what should have been a temporary position. They may have voiced their view enough that Charlene just let them have their way. They may have ‘hounded’ Albert enough too, that Charlene did not feel the bickering and arguing over this was as important as her life with Albert and the children. IMOO I do not see a lot of friendliness between Princess Charlene and the sisters. I often felt that Caroline thought the crown would pass onto her oldest child until the marriage of Albert when that hope was squashed....then even more the hope was squashed with the birth of the twins. That is just MOO.

Or the other way around: why did He married her??? My guess is that needing a wife , he went for the nearest woman who ressembled his mother… A woman who stood ( at counted occasions ) by him, who wouldn't do much of a fuss about anything, give the principality an heir and let him carry on with his life the way he chooses…

Charlene does absolutely not looks than Princess Grace. Neither to her delicate and timeless beauty nor to her behavior as a princess. Late Princess Grace despite she was only 26 years old and coming from another world and lifestyle, took immediately her role and fulfilled all the related obligations. Nothing similar to Charlenes behavior.
