This is true. And we assume the "revenue" for the charity comes only from the tickets when a lot of times, this is also the chance for officers of the charity to corner rich people and extract further donations from them. Lots of things happen in these kinds of events also that are harder to quantify.

But the Fondation Princesse Grace would triple their spending power when the "overhead" was not that monstruous.

If for every Euro spend on the Casino only one centime goes to the Fondaton, then they are there too, without all this carnival eating away the revenues for the good causes.

Wasn't it Grace who restored all the charity balls in Monaco?

I'm not sure if this has been posted before but Noblesse & Royautes have published the menu from the Rose Ball:

Lobster of cold seas with truffles
Poultry and soft crab in puffed rice tempura
Cheesecake, brownie and vanilla ice cream, pecan pie

I love Charlotte in that dress.

And it is weird because it's the kind of theatrical outfit that usually Caroline wears but Charlotte is absolutely unable to pull off. She usually looks eaten-up when she tries to imitate her mother with this kind of daring dresses.

But in this case she really pulls it off. Her attitute enhances the dress and viceversa. She looks sure of herself, adult and elegant.

I've just read that Karl Lagarfeld has died today. I know this is not directly about Princess Caroline, but they were really close and Karl usually designs the Rose Ball, and being the Rose Ball in about a month it might affect the festivities.

This year's Rose Ball will take place on Saturday, March 30.

The following announcement includes his name:

Quote:
The 65th annual Rose Ball, design concept by Karl Lagerfeld, will be held on Saturday, 30th March 2019 in the Salle des Etoiles at the Sporting Monte-Carlo.
But as no further details about the theme have been released yet and his state of health wasn't that good, I'm not 100% sure whether he had been able to work on the theme during the last weeks.

It will be different this year without Karl there. It will be the last one he had help in planning.
