In a pic Monaco70s posted here, I noticed that the very famous portrait of Princess Grace that you always see in the official photos of the family, is in the "Room of Mirrors". Is it permanently there or is this special portrait always moved to wherever the official picture is being taken? I think everyone knows the portrait I'm referring to because it's the one most often seen behind the family when they pose for official pictures in the palace. The one where Grace is wearing the long, sleek white gown and the Grimaldi sash. Does it have a permanent place somewhere in the palace, where it hangs when it's not being used as a backdrop for official pictures?

The other pictures in the Palace are sometimes moved (not every two or three weeks), but I doubt they actually move that particular portrait, being it so meaningful but also so huge...I think all the official pictures in which we saw the portrait were taken in the mirror room (I'm not 100% sure though)

Thanks for the information, Grace. I have to say that I mostly like this palace a lot. The only part of it seen so far that doesn't impress me is Albert's office, because it is over-stuffed and cluttered, and the desk is ugly. His artwork that he has to the left of the window is also ugly. To see that office leaves no doubt a single man inhabits it! His father had such elegant tastes, though! Having such elegant parents, how did Albert come to have such a tacky sense of interior decor?

Looks like a normal male space to me. He had a messy room at college. I bet he knows where everything is.

You're welcome...I'm happy if I could help, but take my information with a grain of salt: I have visited the Palace, but I have no insight in the Principality.

As for Albert's office, the most beautiful thing there is a statue of Grace's head (I didn't get to visit his office of course, i just saw the statue in another pic taken some years ago...); the rest is not only a mess, but also not really tasty. I like Al a lot, but i think he has definitely less class than his parents...

Kisses
