And now Princess Charlene has also her own gala the Monaa gala which is also a big charity event in the year.

it sounds odd but in this picture Charlene reminds me of Stephanie, the way she looks/facial expression.

People tend to make more of this Red Cross Ball (Charlène should wear diadems and sashes) but it is only a posh charity ball.

In my logic: donate to the Red Cross, if you want. But no, a venue has to be chosen, a special theme, all riches and nouveaux-riches are invited to for a diner larded with the best champagne and caviar and, oh yes, please.... would you be so kind to donate something?

So let us hope that after all the bottles of Moët & Chandon and the tins with Beluga Caviar, the Red Cross can enjoy a nice revenue. Better than nothing.



I don't know Duc, but it seems to me you are definitely on the wrong thread. You do not seem to approve of Prince Albert or Princess Charlene and you are caustic in your sniping about the Red Cross Ball. Might I suggest you skip this thread and leave it to those who enjoy it.

And, strangely enough, Charities such as the Red Cross enjoy quite a rise in revenue around fundraisers like the Red Cross Ball because surprise, surprise, it's the "Celebrity" effect. People like to give to the same charities as their friends and fans of various celebrities like to immitate them. It's a weird old world but that's how it turns!

What can I say? I loved every bit of Charlene's look! One of her best

Albert and she looked very happy

More detail with these pictures. The back of the dress is truly splendid in effect. The pictures as a whole don't do the dress justice. The blue is a a very beautiful deep royal blue with a sheen. The whole effect must have been stunning in person. Lovely.

Someone asked about past additional family attendance at the Red Cross Ball. Getty shows the following:
2013 - Caroline was there
2012 - no one
2011 - Caroline and Stephanie
2010 - Caroline and Stephanie
2009 - Stephanie
2008 - Stephanie and Caroline
2007 - Stephanie and Caroline
2006 - Stephanie and Caroline
2005 - Stephanie and Caroline (before Charlene)

I admit, others may have been there, but I took the lazy way out and just referred to the PEOPLE listed for the search results at Getty. But the general answer is that Caroline and Stephanie have generally attended.
And it was fun to look at how past fashion choices hold up in the light of several years passing.

The pics are undoubtedly the most beautiful I have ever seen of this couple - and I am a fan of this couple - but these pics are simply lovely. Charlene is stunning First Lady of Monaco and she and Albert look really happy and in love - joy to see them!

Thanks, melina premiere, for that short, but nice, video. They do seem close and very happy, as other posters have noted. Always nice to see moving pics. Also shows a little of them dancing. Hope there will be more videos soon.

If you call up Getty and search on Red Cross Ball you get this: Search - Getty Images UK: red cross ball

On the right - you can search over the years by person. Take a look. Shirley Bassey always looks good. There are old Princess Grace photos! You can check out Stephanie or Charlene over the years. It's kinda fun!

It used to be a bigger international deal than it seems to be today (I'm guessing the economic bust helped with this).

It seems less a big deal than the Rose Ball, with less "fancy" fashion. Anyway - it was nice to see Liz Taylor from back in the day!
