Noda, I hope that we cannot be a fan of Caroline here , and yes, Caroline is not my cup of tea
She is often élegant but this year, her dress was ugly and I am not the only person to say it.
Beatrice was the only who raised the level of this event which is loosing all her glamour with this Karl Lagerfeld .

As usual this is your opinion! It's not mine. Many people appreciated a lot Caroline's dress. I agree that it is not the one for all taste. As for Charlotte, she wears one of the beautiful Mom's dress. I love it.
As far as BEATRICE is concerned, I don't like very much the dress, apart from the earring, but I appreciated a lot her pubblic appearance after giving birth only 3 weeks ago. I know you understand what I mean.

Beatrice Casiraghi attended because she knew she will always be the best.

Noda, I believe, commented because you claimed that you pass on making comments on Caroline because she isn't your cup of tea - and yet, you make plenty of comments about her. It's really obvious she's not your cup of tea. Which is fine ... but could you extend the same courtesy to those of us who might say something you don't like about Charlène?

And you know this how? What a bizarre comment.

She will never miss an Event where She is the best as ever , no critics , great to come at the Casiraghi /Rose Ball 3 weeks after the birth of Stefano.

OK.

No, it was a shame they weren't there. It was nice to see Alexandra last year - she seems to be growing up into a nice young lady.

Princess Caroline is the epitome of class and elegance even when she wears a bad outfit.

She could wear a burlap sack and I would still say so...she is in a league of her own and past the time when she has anything to prove, imo.

She can rest on her laurels now.

Beatrice at three weeks post partum was simply stunning, and for the first time in ages I love Charlotte's Rose Ball look!

Yes you are right. Caroline is full of class, elegance and she is always chic.

Beatrice and Pierre are so glamorous, elegant and so much inside the Princely Family, that I personally believe they are part of a plan to represent Monaco till Prince Jacques will become Sovereign Prince. The age difference between Prince Albert and Prince Jacques is huge (57) and wishing Albert an happy and long life, a plan B is needed. Pierre and Beatrice are part of this Plan B.

This is my personal opinion, and again I wish an happy,healthy and long life to Prince Albert.

Pierre is six spots after Jacques (including the children). Caroline would be first to step in, but if she has passed already, Andrea would be the next. Certainly Pierre & Beatrice could help, but officially, he is not Plan B, no matter how glamorous they are.

and I have to agree with some that Caroline's dress was awful. I don't care what the inspiration was, I cannot stand it. Caroline was certainly beautiful, and the dress doesn't diminish that, but the dress was awful.

Beatrice was lovely and for once, I didn't mind what Charlotte wore.

noda, such an interesting thought, something i honestly would have never even considered before in regards to Prince Albert as far as Plan B.

That said, imho Plan B is now. Seriously, though not officially, *to me* Pierre & Beatrice are the unofficial heirs until Prince Jacques comes of age. Pierre & Beatrice have IT ~ youth, beauty, magical aura, fairytale story, disney prince & princess. What they bring to the Principality is something that cannot be bought or engineered nor manufactured. What a gift and a joy to watch over the coming decades.

The way Pierre is touching Bea's belly it is as if she is still pregnant.
I like this couple a lot, they seem very cute and in love with each other, even after so many years of relationship!
I could also definitely imagine them as possible heirs in the looong future, before Albert's kid grows up.

Here is some video footage, too:

I agree that before Charlene and Albert had their adorable twins I fantasized about Pierre and Beatrice as Heirs. They are perfect and they seem tailor made for Monaco...elegant, aristocratic, sophisticated and oh so gorgeous to look at.

But I don't think they think of themselves as even "unofficial heirs". God forbid if anything happens to Prince Albert before the baby Marquis des Baux reaches his majority, but it has already been announced that Princess Charlene will act as Regent.

In the meantime Pierre and and Beatrice(who are said to have a very close relationship with Uncle Albert) will continue to be what they are-one of several very beautiful and glamorous brand ambassadors of the Rock and the already impossibly glamorous Princely Family of Monaco.

Everybody wins!

Ah, I love these pictures, thanks! :)

This, however, is my favorite one (those roses behind all three is the perfect backdrop; they look absolutely lush!): https://www.facebook.com/palaismonac...type=3&theater

Btw, Moonmaiden23, ita with your post. :)

I hadn't seen such a close-up picture of the adult Christian of Hannover.
He's quite a handsome man.
