Thanks for the living room photos, during the 70s several photos were taken there. Apparently it kept the same decor from when Grace was alive till Rainier's death. I saw several years ago a photo of Albert in the living room and he had redecorated it. There was a painting of Charlotte attending 2000's Grand Prix (the famous pink scarf photo). Albert also changed the upholstery of the couches in the Hall of Mirrors where Grace's painting is.

Where do the doors on the Gallery of Hercules lead to? I suppose those who've been to the Palace tours can answer, unless those doors/rooms are locked and not on view during the paid tour. Thanks.

I have seen the dvd on the Prince's Palace produced by A&E, and it said that the Gallery of Hercules lead to the Hall of Mirrors. I'm wondering how the rooms are laid out in the tour.

Thanks Zubiar for your response ... Always the expert

Is the Army's room/Officer's room lavishly decorated? I don't think a photograph of it has been featured ... it's always the Throne Room, the Blue Room and the Gallery of Hercules that are featured. Beautiful rooms, but kinda boring that we always see the same stuff. I've read that the palace consists mostly of offices and that there are only a few suites for visiting royalty (Rainier and Grace, by Jeffrey Robinson).

Where is the entrance for the Grimaldis to the palace? I mean not on the square before the palace... And where can you travel by car to the palace? Does it have garage? And where is the way to it?

He's Stephen Falcke (a German name ?)
He studied interior design at the Chelsea School of Art.
He worked for David Hicks, and he's done boutique hotels and domestic work. He has got several awards.

He derives inspiration from nature, and he sees his style as a melting post of different cultures.

I would think near the pool
Yes, that would be a great location... This way, HSH P. Charlene could always throw Monseigneur into the pool if he didn't behave properly...

I read sometimes ago on a princess Grace's biographie that the living room gave on the place of the palace.
For the redecorate of the palace, he was not redecorate from the times of the Princess Grace, it is normal that the couple will decorate and want to design again the apartment they want a new home for a family. It was an apartment for a bachelor. As it is privat, they will pay with their money. I recall to have read that the gift of the wedding of Princess Grace needed to redecorat also the palace. Princess Grace decorat several times the palace.

I think it's the sort of separte block on the south.
There used to be a left wing to the palace that was destroyed by a fire.
After Rainier married Grace they built a new wing to the palace for their private appartments.
I guess that's were Albert and Charlene will live too.

Hmm, do you really think so?
I always thought it is at the pool, where you see the grey roof, the most private part because of the trees.
I guess we will never really know for sure! The block you mean would be directly at the gate and so directly at the front where all the tourists hang out.
Imagine Albert or Charlene waking up and looking through the window, yawning to the people outside. Lol.

I think it's there because of the fact that that's a new part and the windows of the grand salon look quite big and modern.
Also if you look at the view from the windows of the salon, you see a sort of red pavement and I think it's the same than the one you see on the aereal view behind the new block.

On this picture I think you can see the big windows on the left side of the new block?

But it's all just a guess.

I also found this article about the changes that were made to the palace to create more room for offices, archives etc.
