Press release

On Monday, February 9, 2009 the first press statement about
this year's Rose Ball was released. Here's a link to the French
version:

Rock'n'Rose Ball

The text says that Princess Caroline had chosen the "Rock'n'Roll" theme
for this year's ball, so we can look forward to an exciting and colourful
evening under the patronage of Princess Caroline and Prince Albert
.

I agree monaco70. Let's just hope that P. Caroline chooses a more suitable dress to wear than she did last year!!!!!

I'm sure she will, I hope this Ball is better than last year's, for some reason everyone was disappointed at the Ball and everything around it.

I hope Princess Caroline will wear something better for the Rose Ball this year. Last year, she chose to wear a horrible black gown. I am looking forward to seeing the pictures of the Rose ball.

Oooo cannot wait for this. Wonder if dear Charlene will attend.
Should be an all round fun evening. Wonder why Princess Caroline chose Rock'n'Roll??

Do they take it in turns to choose what happens every year?

I am sure that Charlene will atttend The Rose ball. Why does she miss it?
I accept "the theme of the ball"- RocknRoll. I really hope that Caroline cwill choose a suitable dress for this events. once she had a verry good taste. I won't love a "Rocknroll" dress.

I read from the Pipettes' site that they'll be performing! Should be a great night as they're always a fun group to dance and listen to. I have to admit though, I'd never thought it possible to have Princess Caroline and the Pipettes in the same room.

They're a manufactured pop band, or at least they call themselves that. They dress up in polka dot ensembles and totally sound like they're from the sixties/seventies. Check them out at youtube sometime, you might enjoy them. I certainly do! But The Pipettes are hardly rock and roll. Still, they're such a fun band, I'm sure they'd get Princess Caroline and company dancing the night away.

I think that maybe there was too much expectation about the Ball, the ambiance, the ladies's toilletes... And suddenly: disappointment: the ladies ( P. Caroline and Charlotte ) looked like two widows at a funeral ceremony ( all dressed in black ), instead of being at a ball celebrating Spring and the renewal of life. P. Caroline's toillete ( the whole thing and not just the dress ) was a disaster. There was something too dark and too gloomy envolving the event...Brrrr!!!

Thanks for the information on the Pipettes Interesting that they opted for a "new" performer, instead of bring on stage some Rock N' Roll legends that are still alive, which I think would have been better yet they kind of did this on the Red Cross Ball. Maybe the reason they chose a new artist was to bring the new generation to the Ball. Maybe Princess Stephanie will surprise us all and attend this year since she's a fan of rock.

Lazuli you've said it well...I guess there was a lot of expectation last year, well there always is. Only time will tell what it will be like this year.

Smile Rose Ball 2009 - what do you think about the event?

From what I know, the organizers promise an exciting and colorful evening under the patronage of Princess Caroline and Prince Albert. Did anyone attend such event in the past? How did you like it? Unfortunatly my friend got a schedule conflict and I will be on my own - would greatly appreciate any comments and suggestions to not to be "lost". Thanks!

Are they talking about 1950s & 1960s rock-n-roll or more like 1980s big-hair rock-n-roll?

Just found out that a Scottish rock band is performing at the Rose Ball - The Fratellis !
They're from Glasgow, and as an Edinburgher I shouldn't even mention them, but they will certainly wake up the Rose Ball!
They're not really Italian Scots, but the lead singer's mother's maiden name is Fratelli....
