Charlene and Albert served cocktails and a sit down gourmet luncheon in the Palace gardens for 400 guests after the baptismal Mass, so everyone who did not eat their slice of cake were more than likely given a little box to save for a souvenir.

How elegant and beautifully planned this entire event was!

Very rarified. These are going to be some pampered kids I think.

Certainly. But Charlene at least seems pretty grounded and sensible enough not to allow them to turn into little monsters.

And they will definitely be lavishly loved and doted upon by everyone around them, and they will want for absolutely nothing. Very lucky and blessed little ones indeed.

Well that is pretty much a given for Royal children and none of them seem to be Veruca salt��

I can't think of any current day Veruca's(I love it!) but there is definite precedent for previous Royal children. Princesses Caroline and Stephanie come immediately to mind, and in Britain Prince Andrew was known to be a terror as a child too!

Pushing boundries is completely developmently normal and I gurantee a strong willed assertive like George or Estelle or any of them will see how far they can get with staff at one time or another or getting frustrated at school mates and saying
"Well I am a prince so you have to do what I want!" and I am sure they are reminded, disciplined and taught better. I remember a story of Princess Elisabeth being rude to footman and Queen Mary getting hold of her...She said "you might be a princess but you are no lady" and sending her home when she said all these people were there to see them at some outing.

PEOPLE Magazine reports that lobster was flown in from South Africa for the guests, and the Cathedral was filled with 6,000 flowers in shades of white all under the direction of Princess Charlene.

I cannot imagine that A/C will have more children...how would they ever top this bash?

Diana Polignac Nigra, P. Jacques's godmother told portuguese magazine Caras that P. Albert himself invited her to be Jacques's godmother ( over a simple telephone call ), an invitation she immediately accepted with much joy, pride and tenderness. Also according to miss Nigra, this invitation was an attempt to keep a family tradition since Prince Pierre ( Albert's grandfather ) was the godfather of miss Nigra's oncle ( Henrique ) and Prince Louis ( miss Nigra grandmother's brother ) was P. Albert's godfather. So... All in the family...

I have a feeling that Charlene will want to take the twins over to South Africa later this year. In 2-3 months from now they should be big enough to travel a far distance and I'm sure that she'll be dying to show them off to her extended friends and family there. I know Mary has had her kids over to Australia several times and Maxima's have often been to Argentina but I'm not sure how young they all were when they first went.

Maxima took Amalia as an infant to Argentina and the other girls as well when they were toddlers.

Oh, i think i found the reason why Charlotte did not attend her cousins's Christening. According to magazine Semana Charlotte and Raphaël ( by the way, i discovered that Raphaël is one of Prince Pierre de Polignac's - Charlotte's great grandfather - middle names... ) were in Thailand with Gad who is there working in a new movie called Pattaya. Apparentely Gad plays the role of a shaolin monk...

Still not official photos... I was convinced they would release one or two... if you click on the link provided by the palais princier youill find old photos of the 3 simblings's baptism...I am inclined to think thye will include Jacques and Gabriella too, because it doesn't make sense otherwise
