The ceremony was lovely. It was nice to see Princess Caroline and Princess Stephanie with their children attending it.

I think only the Swedes do it with a fancy miniature Order. In most other Orders the decorations are worn when the Princes or Princesses are 18 years old. For an example: children of the King of the Netherlands and of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg are automatically Knight in the Order of the Golden Lion of Nassau (the Order is shared by both Houses of Nassau). The Princes and Princesses of both Houses however are never seen with the Order until the age of 18. Most likely this is the same with the monegasque Order. I have never seen pictures of petite Albert, Caroline or Rainier with an Order.

Just a traditional formal dress for nannies/governesses?

If you look at some old pics of Albert's christening there are ones of him wearing the tiny sash of a Knight Grand Cross if the Order of Grimaldi.

Oh, what a perfect occasion this was for the Princely couple and Monaco. Just everything was perfect: from the sunny day, the crowds showing up, to P Albert and P Charlene's obvious pride and joy and the twins' absolutely priceless interaction after the ceremony!! I liked that all of P Charlene's family attended, a pity that Gad, Charlotte and Tatiana were not present.

Moonmaiden23, you captured what I want to say perfectly. P Charlene not only looked elegant as ever, but she radiates a new joy, peace and confidence that is obvious to see.

I think that Monaco is entering a new era with a happy and popular Princely couple who are passionate and focused, and now a new generation who has already captured so many hearts. They were just perfect on their first "performance", and their interaction was truly priceless.

Her babies, including the Heir to the Throne, were being formally received into the Church and the family of God during a Pontifical High Mass in the Cathedral.

This was as proper a time as any for the Princess Consort of Monaco to wear her Order(s).

I agree but in that case the protocol should have been the same across the board with everyone else, including Caroline and Stephanie, wearing their Order medals as well.

Well, here go my impressions of the day... I hadn't the opportunity to watch the ceremony live so i'll comment what i've seen so far in a replay. The day seemed perfect: sunny and splendorous. The ladies were stunning, what a display of elegance. Even P. Charlene, who i don't usually find specially elegant, looked radiant today ( and, Amazing Grace, for the first time i managed to see a spark of an emotion in her face ). Charlotte's absence was injustifiable and unexcusable - contrary to Tatiana's. I loved seeing Andrea doing the first reading. As for the babies, oh the babies... two beautiful, healthy, curious about the world little creatures, Jacques taking so much after his mother and Gabriella with the Grimaldi's pout... I'd say that, in the overall, this was quite an happy day for the Grimaldi family and i'm quite happy for it!!!

The whole day was pure elegance and happiness and what a triumph for the Princess over her haters. The nasty forum board, which I'm sure many people here are familiar with, just don't know what to say anymore. I had a peek at it today and in their fury at Charlene becoming a mother of two beautiful children they have now resorted to insulting the babies themselves. It's pathetic and shows how sad and frustrated these people are. Vive the Princely family!

It was a pleasure to watch, though long, lol. Beautiful day, gorgeous baby twins, both families in attendance (except Charlotte, Gad, Tatiana), and delightful all around!

And how apropos on Mother's Day here in the USA.

LONG LIVE THE GRIMALDI TWINS!!!!

The Cathedral Choir of Monaco rivals any at the Vatican itself, imo. Their sung Masses are always glorious in Monaco.

The special Hymn they always sing for the Sovereign at the end of the ceremony is so beautiful.
