I am ready and I am always looking forward to seeing the pictures of the Rose Ball every year! Is everyone excited and looking forward to seeing the pictures of the Rose Ball?

I am certainly excited for the pictures, should be a stunning evening, even more if Charlene attends.

I really hope that Caroline and her children still attend. I think it's would be a bad idea for Ernst to, even if he wants to, he deserves time to recover. And Caroline, I imagine, would want to help him. It will be very sad if neither of them are there, though.

Has there been anything about the possibility of Louis attending? I've heard that a few times.

Princess Stephanie rarely brings her children into the limelight and I'd doubt that any of her children attend anything like this ball until they become adults -- past 21 or so. Her preference (or so I've read) would be to keep them out of the public lens until they can choose to live privately or in public on their own accord.

Have any of our Monaco friends heard or seen photos of this year's decorations, menus or invitations? I'm looking for some information for the blog post of the even and would appreciate any heads up on those!

I hope Princess Caroline doesn't lack. Can anyone answer me if she uses to wear some kind of tiara, order or something?

I remember princess Grace used to wear majestics dresses, gorgeous tiaras and be very pompous.

The Fratellis, they are amazing.
Wonder how they came to be picked?

I'd love to see Stephanie attend. Louis and Pauline attending would be more than cool.

French source TF1 - LCI.fr says attendences of Princess Stephanie and Miss Charlene Wittstock hoped for but not confirmed.

I think you have to be the age of 17 to attend the Rose Ball. Stephanie has not attended the Rose Ball in a quite a few years so I don't think she'll be there unless Caroline does not go.

I really hope to Charlene there again this year as it is while she we have seen her and Albert at an official function

The Rose Ball and Red Cross ball arent quite the same as in the days of the late Princess Grace as she really did bring that extra bit of glamour that is really lacking

Prince Albert and Princess Caroline are very heavily involved with the picking of entertainment (as was their Mother before them) and so they must have at least heard of them. I've even seen quotes in interviews of performers that say that the Prince (or Princess) called the performer directly to ask them to perform.

It's also not unknown for either of them to appear at the venue to make sure things are being decorated correctly the day before.

The Fratelli's are one of my favorite bands! Their most famous song here in America would probably be Chelsea Dagger.

Poor Ernst, I hope he gets well soon. I think Caroline will attend because she's Monaco's First Lady and the Ball's organizer, but without a doubt I'm sure she'll want to be by Ernst's side.

I wonder if the Ball will begin an hour later due to the Lights Off movement tonight around the world.

There is no minimum age to attend the Ball, I remember reading that in 2007's Red Cross Ball there were kids running around the Sporting Club! And also Caroline attended her first Ball when she was 16, so did Albert.

It's quite interesting to see that the musical choices for this year are not big names like those from all of the other Balls. Definetly a great opportunity for all of these new artists and a great way to bring the young generation to the Ball.

I am sorry to hear about Prince Ernst. I hope gets well soon. I can understand that Prince Ernst won't attend at the Rose Ball. At least, I hope Princess Caroline will attend tonight.

I am excited and can't wait to see the pics!

Oh, no, I am sorry for EA accident. He and Caroline make nice couple during events like Rose Ball. I only hope that the rest of family will appear like always.

Getty already has images of the Sporting Club's decor. It says Prince Albert and Charlene will attend.

Charlotte looks stunning, too bad she wore black again! Princess Caroline seems to have made up from last year, yet black again....her handbag is original a motorcycle helmet with some roses. Beatrice Borromeo is there, as well as Melanie and Julliet Maillot.

Wow Charlotte looks gorgeous, and Pierre is handsome as ever. All 3 C's are wearing so-so gowns imo. Can't wait to see more pictures, especially of them dancing.
