I saw a priest near the family, is he part of the family Kelly or only a friend?


Does anybody know him?

A short vidoe of Charlene and Albert among the people




On the video I already posted

We see and hear that Charlene is speaking a lot french when the people speaks to her in french and in English when the people are speaking in English


This evening , there was a documentary about the presentation of the babies to the principality ' we heard Prince Albert speaking in English to people in the crown.

Prince Rainier had to approve PA's marriage. Albert waited for his father to die so he could choose whoever he wanted. His sisters got pregnant. Then the Catholic church pressured Rainier to approve their marriages. To a lesser degree, you could also see some infighting going on when Prince William and Princess Victoria wanted to get married (to others). It's a power and control battle between the rulers and the heirs. To me it is a human rights violation and should be banned.

During all the meeting of the people of Monaco, Charlene spoke with people of Monaco , she huged and kissed the people, she was very ease with the old people who were waiting her at the end of the meeting , we saw a lot of persons who wanted to shake her hand and Charlene huged a lot of the old persons, for them no matter , she does not speak well french, she was natural and ease with them.


At the end of this 'meeting with the people of Monaco, we saw that she was tired but she was always kind and smiling with the persons , she was just recuperating of the cesarian , which took place only 4 weeks ago. I found very nice whe went out of the palace with Albert to meet and thank the people who was on the place of the palace and this gesture of Albert and Charlene went to the heart of the people


A photo i like a lot

Thank you for sharing this information regarding Charlene using English during the video. I'd not realized their were so many residents who spoke English there.

In a recent interview for Dutch television (in the framework of his visit to the King and Queen) with an absolutely 100% perfectly fluent and beautiful French speaking interviewer, Prince Albert requested the interviewer to do it in English because he has "a stammer when speaking French"...

There are only around 5.000 real monegasques. The rest, around 25.000 "residents" (many only have a registraton of domicily in the principality to escape taxes in their homeland) are foreigners. And of course the daily flood of tourists. No wonder English is very dominant in Monte-Carlo.

Because he did not meet Mrs Right so far?

There are all sorts of psychological reasons why this might be the case, if so, I am sure it is painful for him and surely not something to criticize.

Surely not to criticize, it is a real problem for a lot of people, and even a bigger problem when your position obliges you to talk in public !

Prince Jacques bears a strong resemblance, even at this young age, to Princess Charlene

I have no idea who is Prince Jacques and who is Princess Gabriella, I have no idea what their hair colour or their facial structures will be, they are still formless, wrinkled creatures whom are -in my male eyes- interchangeable for each other. It is clear they will not be identical twins so it will be interesting how they will develop.

I am very late to this, these pictures are very warm and natural, for any royal house, let alone Monaco. Charlene and Albert look genuinely happy and relieved. Charlene is very good with children, I have no doubt that she will be a great mother and the kids will rely a lot on her, with Albert a lot older. Whatever was going on before there, they look at peace now with themselves.

I too am late to this thread, but it's great to see the whole family together celebrating this important day in the Grimaldi family and of course especially the proud parents. I think Charlene looks pretty wonderful with her new fringe and I love her outfit - Albert looks pretty good too. The turn out outside the Palais is lovely to see - Monagasques are clearly in a mood to celebrate.

I completely agree, I saw the resemblance immediately. And I also think Gabriella bears a striking resemblance to Albert.

I was referring to the photos of the twins that were released before they left the hospital-you could see both -their faces clearly.

The monegasques were given a national holiday («férié pour l’en­semble des personnes travaillant à Monaco»). When a village or small city has something to celebrate, one may expect the same turnout. When it is Quatorze Juillet in my small town, then the whole square is packed too for the usual Fête.

It is not because the monégasques were given a national Holiday that they were many on the place of the palace, at the national day and also at the fest of Sainte Devote day, they have also an Holiday day, they are not so many people.
The day of the presentation of the princes was very important for them, they came with flags , ballons and so. For them it is a continuity of the principauty and the dynastie of the Grimaldi, a lot were moved beause they have waited a so long time to see this this ceremony one day.

Of course, but when the monegasques were expected just to go to work or to school... they had to take a day off from work. Now they were given a (paid) free day. You will understand the difference...

The mongasques may stayed at home and only watched the cermony at the TV, but they came to this presentation because it was very important for them



They explain why they are here, One person very moved said 'you cannot imagine the joy we have when the babies are born.
An another person whith the photo of Princess Grace with Albert baby said, they are the future of Monaco but I am sorry that the former princely couple could not see this event, one other person said : it was very important my child could see our future prince sovereign , an another person says that there will be a future prince Jacques and a princess Gabriella who will be very beautiful as her mother.

A blog where the babies Jacques and Gabriella are well seen

I can't believe sometimes what I read here,and this is one of those moments.I assume we are all adults but yet some of have resorted to calling babies ugly.These most unnecessary comments and the replies will be removed and I hope we don't stoop to this low level again.

The presentation of the twins was a special occasion for the whole of Monaco, and especially the proud parents. The support of the people on the day must've been a heart warming experience for the couple. Thanks to all, especially melina p, for posting all the wonderful pictures and videos!

We are looking forward to seeing them grow and develop, together with their cousins and other youngsters in the family.

Jacques is Charlene's image in those pictures and this is from someone who usually can't see resemblances in newborns. I can't tell who PG looks like but she looks different to her brother.
