I hope we get to see the extended Princely family in attendance tomorrow and maybe a few invited royal guests,the Duke and Duchess of Castro seem to be quite close to Prince Albert II.

No, it is in the Sovereign's pleasure to grant a decoration. It happens that someone is 'promoted' from a knight to a higher grade but usually this is not automatic. It happens more that the person receives the equivalent in the nearby higher grade. This scenario would mean that the twins are promoted to the highest Order which is the Saint-Charles.

The Order of Grimaldi is the third highest Order but 'the most logic' to give to the two.

1. The Order of Saint-Charles
To give public homage in connection with services or merits towards to the prinipality or to the person of the Prince

2. The Order of the Crown
To give public homage to exceptional and eminent merits

3. The Order of Grimaldi
To give public homage to persons which contribute to the prestige of the principality

The first Order is too premature, seing the description. The second Order is really for eminence and exceptional merits, think about sportsmen, scientists, artists, etc. That leaves the third Order. We can argue that the youngborn Marquis de Baux and the equally young Comtesse de Carladès (will) "contribute to the prestige of the principality" and are therefore (premature) recipients of this honour.

I imagine that eventually, perhaps when she reaches a milestone age like 18 or 21, the young Princess will be upgraded to Dame Grand Cross of the Order of Grimaldi. I'm also sure that both twins will become Knight and Dame Grand Cross of the Order of Saint Charles in the course of time with Jacques , once again, receiving it in advance of his sister.

Another major milestone for PC today. So proud of her -- she's certainly come a long way. Can't wait to see how much the twins have grown! 💟💙

No, today is the day of Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona. Grand Prix de Monte Carlo is in 2 weeks.

Princess Stephanie never wears hats. Also at the Wedding she didn't.

Quite a lot of people lining up on the streets, good to see.

Charlene looks absolutely lovely!

Any idea why they used the side entrance?

Caroline, Charlene's mother and the godmothers are wearing stunning outfits but Charlene herself looks the most stunning of them all today. I knew she would look good at this event but even I'm taken aback by just how beautiful she looks.

I was just thinking it is lovely to see the Grimaldi family at the Cathedral to celebrate a happy occasion - so many images of funerals from previous years have stuck in my mind.
Some nice footage of the family arriving with proud parents both looking splendid ( Charlene particularly exquisite). Two gorgeous babies too.
