Beautiful pictures, thanks for posting the pictures.

Sorry, I don't know too much about royal residences in Monaco, but is there just one palace? That would make sense, considering Monaco is a principality.

Yes, Monaco only has one palace and that is all they need given their size. Yeah, they are great photos!

Well, it certainly is a beautiful palace. I hope I get to see it in person sometime soon-ish.

Where does that round glass door in the far right hand corner lead to, and what would it be used for?

Do you think these were actually used at one time? There's enough there to arm Monaco's armed forces.

I think it is a closet to hide in when uncomfortable people come to see him.

For a palace that is two storey high?? How lazy can people be? Wouldn't it rather be a "beam me up, Scotty" thing?

I work for a pump company & we've been told at work that elevators (which use pumps- most elevators that are in 3 or 4 story buildings use pumps to lift the elevators) will be the future thing in homes. And some palaces have elevators for the people who work in the palace- its easier to move the cleaning suppliers or to bring food to other parts of the palace.
There are lots of reasons for elevators & not all because someone may or may not be lazy.

My guesses would've been either a private bathroom so that he doen't have to walk far to find one, or there's a security guard in there for emergencies.

From what I have read in biographies, Prince Rainier's office is located in the palace tower, a level above Grace's. It's not in the main wing which appears to have two storeys mostly. So having an elevator in a tower is much more understandable.

How many storeys there are in the tower, and actually how many towers there are in the Palais Princier, I have no clue.

Other Palaces of the Grimaldi Family

I hope this is the right thread for my question about other palaces of the Grimaldi family:
I found that there was a ‘Hôtel de Monaco’ in Paris (a hôtel particulier, being a private Townhouse or Mansion of a noble family). It was build from 1772-77 in the 57, rue Saint-Dominique by the architect Alexandre Théodore Brongniart for Marie-Catherine Princes of Monaco(wife of Honore III of Monaco).Theoriginal building was replaced in 1838 by a mansion for William Williams Hope, nevertheless itisstill called‘Hôtel de Monaco’andis now the polishEmbassy.
Iam wondering if the Grimaldi stillown a Hôtel particulier in Paris ?Does anybody know something aboutthis?

In the Tosca's post, (#198), we can see the black balconies of the Clos Saint-Pierre, the PC's villa.

Thanks for the beautiful pictures of the royal palace and information on the palace. I know a little about the palace as well the blue room in the palace is where viisting heads of state are seated to meet with the prince.The chairs in the blue room chairs are made of silk as well as the walls. The floor in the blue room is made of marble. The white room has the famous picture of the late beauty Princess Grace wearing a white gown with a tiara on her head and wearing the royal family sash. It is considered to be the most beautiful room in the palace. In the summer the royal court yard is used as concert grounds for the Monaco orchestra.
