The DM article identifies Charlotte Casiraghi as a "pal" of Prince Albert.

Seriously? How do these rags hire their staff...do they lose bets with them or something? Beyond dumb, sloppy reporting!

Bea's mother was there and what a goodlooking woman she is :) Pierre and Beatrice made the evening even more glamorous.

You're a tough crowd, Duc_et_Pair. One could say that about all of it. Why not mention the underpaid immigrants slaving away in the kitchens to prepare the feast for the high and mighty? So why does this one draw your particular animus?

The dress is very risqué 1920's, like this one linked to below. At least, imo, and I will admit I am not an authority in this area.

Can we see a close-up of Bea's mother?

Is this the first time Alexandra has attended the Rose Ball? I don't think she was present last year.

I hope little Gabriella gets well soon and also that her illness is nothing too serious.

I've heard that as well, though they also live in Monte Carlo. I think they've attended the Rose Ball for most years so I wasn't surprised to see them attend this year.

Albert is responsible for introducing the Castros to one another. Both he and Rainier attended their nuptials in Monaco.

Yes, it's been the first time she attended one of the two annual balls in Monaco

You can find several pics in the already posted galleries. Here's one for example, not that close, but still good for a mother-daughter comparison

Beatrice and her sister have done alright. B is engaged to Pierre and her sister is married to the CEO of Fiat.

Lovely dress, however, women of a certain age need to wear sleeves .... as evidenced by this lady and Princess Carolina.

^^^. Agree, although both of them are wearing lovely gowns...they need to be wearing sleeves. Nice to see P Alexandra there for the first time, but really a shame that P Steph, her kids and P Charlene could not attend.

I was really looking forward to seeing Stephanie's pretty Pauline and I had high hopes that she would attend this year...she seems to have raised her profile.

But I don't think any of the Ducruets have ever attended the Rose or Red Cross Balls.

As they haven't attended any of the balls yet, I somehow doubt we'll ever see them there. And if it did happen, I think they would much more likely attend the Red Cross Ball as that's been Princess Stephanie's favourite one during the last years ( I think the last Rose Ball Stephanie attended was in 2003).



Here are two more galleries - with two lovely pics of Alexandra and Pierre dancing:

I wonder why the Palace didn't announce Charlenes absence but some journalist. She was listed to attend, after all.

The third sister is married to a Prince Von Furstenberg and the forth one to an Italian Count.

It was my wonder too. Usually the princely couple/Pcs Caroline enter first, followed by the Casiraghis and the de Massy. But no pic of pcs Alexandra's entrance. Unless she came later. This year I noticed there're a few official pics of the entrance.

Her eldest half sister Isabella is married to an Italian Count, an oil baron; her other half sister Lavinia is married to John Elkann the owner of FCA (former FIAT); and her youngest half sister Matilde is married to a German prince.

So Donna Paola was there. This means that the two lovebirds are officially engaded to marry, although there hasn't been an announcement from Caroline.

Seems like Caroline ignored Paola. Perhaps she hoped in a richer or noble daughter-in-law or both. Besides I think Caroline doesn't like the idea of having Bea's grandmother, who was sentenced for fraud, among her in laws.

I've noticed that Pierre and Alexandra seem to be quite close.
