I disagree, NGalitzine.
Albert and Charlene primarily live at Le Roc, using The Palace for official occasions and as their office.
Albert stated that in numerous interviews.

You could be right but since the private apartments are being redecorated that would imply future usage.

Some photos of the tennis court as it was being built. The photos were taken by one of the construction workers.

Thanks for all the pics agogo!

It's a huge property with a lot of houses, maybe guest houses.

And with google street view you can't see anything but trees.

I would think so too!

Does someone know if the landing field for the helicopter was built before or after Grace's accident?

Probably after. The Monaco helicopter company was started by Stephano.

Christiane Stahl said in her book that Prince Albert uses to go to Roc Agel every evening after the work and also after a gala from spring to november, but in winter he stays at the palace and she says that he stays also at the palace when he must to be in the palace very early in the morning but it is rarely. She said that there are offices to work now in Roc Agel and sometimes they had meetings at Roc Agel.She told in her book that the first time she saw Charlene it was in Roc Agel in april 2006

I don't blame them. A palace is a strange place to live. I can't imagine that it would ever feel homey. P. Caroline couldn't wait to get out of there.

Eringer said that after the death of Prince Rainier, Prince Albert did not like to stay in the palace because he was so lonely. Maybe it is big and roomy. I'm sure that the private family apartments still had the memories of his parents. Caroline and Stephanie have their own families and homes so it doesn't surprise me that Prince Albert felt comfortable elsewhere.

An old picture of Roc Agel.
I can see why it was so beloved by Grace and Rainier. High atop a mountain, overlooking the hills of Monaco. No one around to chase them with cameras. It looks lovely.
