Thanks, Ianna! The very last picture of the Magnificent Hercules Gallery with Prince Albert on the mobile phone was definitely shot early to mid-90s. I remember those mobile phones that weighed 10 lbs!

nice pics
the style of the palace seems to be middle eastern esp. the courtyard
do they have a lot of fancy dinners? if so, is there a formal dinning room?

I thought exactly the same thing. I wonder where did that influence come from. I am sure they entertain heads of states and the other important ppl that may come

Heres the summary of MonacoPalace official site and some tourist agencies sites..Info about some Palaces rooms..



The Italian-style Gallery running alongside the South facade with the luxurious frescoes by XVI century Genoese artists, depicting mythological scenes.
Some of State Apartments;
The Louis XV Salon, yellow and gold.

The Salon Bleu, a marvelous harmony of blue and gold, used for official receptions. It received its name because the walls are lined with blue silk brocade. In it are Grimaldi portraits, 19th century Italian gilt and the dazzling Venetian chandeliers.

The Mazarin Salon, paneled in polychrome wood with arabesque motifs.

The Throne Room, containing a large Renaissance fireplace, where historic festivals and ceremonies have been held since the XVI century.Throne Room is where all official ceremonies, such as swearing-in-of-high ranking state officials and some state receptions take place. Above the throne is the Grimaldi coat of arms and motto: Deo Juvante, With God's Help. Its floors, like all the floors of the State Apartments, are inlaid with Carrera marble.

The Palatine Chapel built in the XVII century.

The Sainte-Marie Tower, like the Clock Tower, was built during the Albert Is reign, using white stone from La Turbie. The Princes flag wings from the top of this tower when the Prince is in residence.

The Main courtyard (home for famous summer concerts), paved with 3 million white and colored pebbled forming immense geometrical patterns, and its noble double-revolution Carrera marble staircase dating from the 13th century and inspired by a similar staircase at the Chateau of Fontainebleau.

York Room so named because the Duke of York, brother of King George III of England, The marble mosaic table in the center of this room is the one designated to signing official documents. The room is furnished with ornate ebony Florentine furniture from the 17th century, a Boulle clock and royal portraits.

The Officers Room is used by the Protocol Office to greet guests.

The final room of the State Apartments is the State Hall, which connects the Palace's southern and eastern wings and leads to the dinning room and Royal Family's private apartments via a long marble staircase.

You can see some of these rooms including beautiful painting on the ceilings in a documenty you should be able to find in a library called The Princes Palace. They allowed the public to view some rooms for the first time. The formal dinning room is magnificent as the other rooms. And if you are looking to see Albert in it there is only a picture near the end.

we have seen the throne room, lunch room but what about the tv room? i can think of nothing better than after a hard day & evening of work- than setting in your own tv room with a bowl of popcorn and southern style pop watching tv.

The private apartments of the Princes aren't generally photographed. However there are photos avaible in books at the library. Check the section on Princess Grace she was photographed in some of the rooms also when the children when young. I am checking Corbis right now to located some I know are there.

A Sitting room at the palace.

A picture of the living room also called the Grand Salon is in another thread. Above it is a study loft where Albert works. Its beautiful with golden Italian marble floors and fireplace his mother designed of sea stone from Monaco and from Grimaldi, the family seat in Italy. It has a double white sofa from New York. An eighteenth-century Chinese screen, cages of birds and plants as well as palms.

The Grand Salon

Orginally posted by Julia 01-27-03 Grace and Family Vogue 1971. Description is as follows. Golden Italian marble floors and the fireplace Grace designed of sea stones from Monaco and Grimaldi, the family seat in Italy. A double white sofa from NY, an eighteen-century Chinese screen stands behind a monk's refectory table. Cages with birds are suspended all about, with hanging plants and giant palms. Above the living room is a study loft where Prince Albert works. This room has basically stayed as Princess Grace decorated it as you see in this photo.

They both have their own homes. There is a smaller study next to Albert's office where Princess Grace once performed her duties as Princess. Princess Caroline now uses that space when visiting. The apartment has a dining room, kitchen, and family room on the bottom level. Upstairs is a master bedroom, his and her dressing rooms, and a large bath. Each of the children had two-room suites upstairs as well, separated by another large family room where each had a desk for homework. Today, Caroline's children and sometimes Stephanie's are often found in these rooms. Source Once Upon a Time by Randy Taraborrelli. How accurate it is I don't know he made some errors in another book according to a video shown on Prime Time Live. Yes, I know incase someone is keeping track its the second time I said a writer made errors in his book.
