As it was posted earlier, several of the Grimaldi tiaras are at an exhibition in Brazil. This includes the fringe tiara and the pearl drop tiara originating from Princess Charlotte and 2 or 3 of Princess Grace' tiaras. If the Grimaldis were all planning to were tiaras, they wouldn't have send their best pieces abroad, imho. Maybe they kept one tiara for Charlene, maybe they didn't. After all neither Grace nor Caroline or Stephanie wore tiaras at their wedding day. So it's possible that Charlene won't wear one either. (Although I really hope she will.)

I personally don't expect to see CW in a tiara at her wedding Mass, but I DO expect that she will appear in one that evening at the Ball.

Same for Princess Caroline(if she wears one at all)

Stephanie? FORGET about it. I don't think she will ever wear a tiara!

Ah, but the question is:

Will Caroline wear one ??? Personally I think she would grace the occasion with dignity.

This is another aspect of the half-hearted habits of the Grimaldi... There is no one who sets the tone ...... unlike the Queen who would see to it that everything is correct.

True, but somehow the Grimaldis always seem to pull off their grand events with style and panache.

The Enthronement ceremonies for Prince Albert were both grand and emotional...and of course being the Grimaldis they all looked stunning.

I am crossing my fingers that this wedding...their biggest event since the Enthronement...goes off without a hitch.

It always somehow works out well.

As for funerals...I know it sounds morbid but nobody looks more elegant in mourning than the Monaco group...the only other family in the world I can think of that "do" funerals as well are the Kennedys of Massachusetts, but they of course are not Royal or aristocratic.

Moonmaiden,
I think the Kennedys as a group had (and still have) oodles more personality than even the Grimaldi Clan.

It must be the Irish blood - but then, PA seems to be lacking in that department...


Mariage Princier:

Pierre Debat is responsible for the music on the Big Day.
He has recruited 77 musicians from the Philharmonic Orchestra, plus the Choirs of the Opéra, and the Petits Chanteurs de Monaco.
There will be two organs, plus South African singers.

The choice of music will only be published a few days before the Mass.

Ah, music music music, one can never have enough, especially at such a momentous occasion such as this ~ the marriage of a soverign from the House of Grimaldi, the first since Prince Rainier wed Grace Kelly in 1956.

But back to the discussion of tiaras (my personal favorite topic btw, lol), in particular Princess Caroline of Hanover. I think it would be apropos and fitting for her to wear one of the many spectacular Hanover jewels, of which there are a treasure trove of, as she is still First Lady of the House of Hanover (and styled as such on the Monaco Princely Website), therefore it would only be apropos for Caroline to wear a Hanover Tiara, whereas her new sister-in-law one of the many Grimaldi Tiaras. Jmho. :)

And here they are (i.e. the Hanover Jewels; take your pick!):

Caroline of Hanover | Brunswick Tiara onced owened by Josephine Empress of France

Blten-Diadem des Hannover Schatzes| Diamant-Tiara mit Geissblatt-Blten

Schmuck und Juwelen der Welfen - Jewels of the Guelphes | Cumberland - Hannover

Isabella Prinzessin von Hannover | Hochzeits - Diadem - Coronet

Erzherzogin Francescas Smaragd-Tiara | ROYAL MAGAZIN - SCHMUCK


ps: I think the last one would look SPECTACULAR on Charlene; the color matches her eyes perfectly!

No, Stephanie has never been seen wearing a tiara. (Be careful: there is a photoshopped picture of her wearing an emerald tiara going around the web. But that's not real!)

I would have thought he has enough to contend with !

The uniform is the same that PA wore at the Swedish wedding.
I did. Quite a few years ago, Armani designed the summer Carabineri uniform. Armani is not creating a new uniform, he just did the original design.

Why is this a "less important" event?

I am jumping up and down in my seat like a hyperactive five year old...I love South African singing!!

And the Petits Chanteurs de Monaco sound exquisite, too.

Thanks Renata4711!

BTW...Princess Stephanie missed her sister Caroline's pre-Nuptial Ball in 1978 because she refused to wear a dress, and for once Grace put her foot down and told Stephanie that she could either wear a dress or stay home...but she was NOT wearing pants.

Stephanie opted to stay home. So that pretty much answers the question of whether she will appear in a tiara next month, I think.

Anything could happen, but I would be surprised to see either Jazmin or Alexandre at the wedding for several reasons.

I think it would take the focus off the bride and groom, and PA especially does not want any reminders of his past associations with their mothers, not only to avoid embarrassment for himself but for his bride as well.

Hehehe, that sounds pretty much like what I would have done in that age and in that era. But times change as well as fashion, and people grow up and change their perspectives. Stephanie has been seen wearing quite a number of dresses over the years.
What I find more distracting, is the fact, that neither Stephanie nor Caroline wore tiaras at PA's inthronement. And that was a white tie event, where CP Victoria wore her fringe tiara and Sophie Wessex her wedding tiara.
