I'll be happy if P. Caroline and her children ( at least some of them - I doubt Andrea and Charlotte attend ) and P. Stephanie with her children ( at least Camille ) attend the ceremony...

I think there won't be any royalty whatsover, aside from the family... I think Andrea may attend, but Tatiana not, since she gave birth just over a month ago... We'll see...

I expect Pauline Ducruet will not attend. I believe she is living in New York.

Princess Caroline will attend with Pierre, Beatrice , princess Alexandra, Andrea (not sure Tatiana) Charlotte ( not sure Gad).
Princess Stéphanie will attend with her three children.

There will be 42 cannons shots again , the first will be fired when the couple will leave the palace to the cathedrale and the last when the couple will return to the palace .

Well, Tatiana has recently given birth and it's not likely that she'll travel to London leaving her baby behind ( also i think the baby is still too young to travel... ). I don't think Andrea will leave her alone in London, travel to Monaco and attend the ceremony all by himself. I just don't see him doing that. Plus, i think Charlotte is too busy with her life in Paris, and, since i don't believe Gad has been invited, i have my doubts that she will attend. As for Stephanie's children, Louis and Pauline they're both studing abroad and i don't think it would be easy for them to travel to Monaco to attend the ceremony. But... Let's wait and see

Prince Jacques, Marquis de Baux, will be honoured with the Grand Cross in the Order of Grimaldi. His sister Princess Gabriella, Comtesse de Carladès, will be honoured with the rank of a Grand Officier in the same Order. This is one step lower and the first visible difference between the Hereditary Prince and the Princess.

Wasn't Andrea in Monaco for a soccer match a week or so after India was born?

I have high hopes the whole family will come, it's quite a historical moment in the history of the principality.

The fact that Jacques is always named first in communiqués (except for their birth announcement) was the first visible difference IMO.

Yes, you're quite right CDM, maybe i'm being foolish. But, then again, a soccer match isn´t a formal occasion and i'll find it odd if he attends the ceremony alone, without his wife...

Princess Stéphanie recieved no orders at her birth, it was the prince Albert who gave her the Grimaldi order when he became the prince sovereign.
Princess gabriella received the order of Grimaldi , less rank than her brother but he is the heir and not the spare. Princess Stéphanie received no order at her birth.
There will 42 cannons shots, 21 for Jacqus and 21 for Gabriella. same traitment here.
In the other royal countries, the spares and the other chidren who came after did not receive the same traitment than the heir or heiresse.

Well, I'm sure both are equally loved by their parents, but, dynastically and constitutionally speaking, the Hereditary Prince is more important than his sister, and always will be.

If there was absolute primogeniture, the only thing that would change it is that Princess Gabriella would more important than her brother. And that's it. Monarchy was never about fairness, but it works well.
