The Prince and Princess looked splendid. I know that Pope Franciscus seems popular with his sloppy appearance but somewhere I find that when a visitor dresses up to the max to meet him, he should dress up too.

The former Pope, Benedictus XVI, wore a choir dress and a red mozzetta or white mozzetta with or without fur (depending on the time of the year). With this showing that he is not only the Bishop of Rome but also the head of state of the Holy See. Is there an Official Visit? Then a choir dress is worn over the usual white cassock and then a mozzetta. This is very visible on this picture. The President and the First Lady were dressed perfectly. The Pope, their host, answered with equal perfect manners. I miss that with the current Pope.

My compliments for the Prince and Princess of Monaco. Despite the Pope not taking any effort to upgrade his appearance, the princely couple looked perfect. Note that everyone in the Vatican looked better dressed than the head of state of the Holy See. Hmmm...

Imo one of the greatest things about the current pope is that he takes catholicism back to what really matters: spiritual life and respect for others, and not all the fancy looks and splendour that sometimes takes too much precedence.

If looks were important than "Thow shalt dress up when meeting others" would be in the 10 commandments

Well, then the Pope is not very consequent: he still has not sold the Apostolic Palace and the Vatican musea, to swap to a linen tent in Calais or so. And when manners are not so important anymore as you say, I would recommend Prince Albert and all other royals to sell all their historic collections, no longer request a dresscode, break the jewels because tja... these are not mentioned in the Ten Commandments...

It is all gallery play by the Pope. While he prefers an appartment in Casa Santa Marta, he still receives the royal guests in the papal appartments which are... surprise, surprise... far more spartan than the recently renovated and refurbished Casa Santa Marta, which is more a big hotel with all services.

That the Pope thinks his old rag does not need a choir dress and a mozzeta for the ceremonial welcome of a Catholic head of state, does not make him a hero or something. It shows desinterest, lack of manners. I applaud that the Prince and Princess of Monaco still know what politesse is. Would he have appeared in wrinkled pantalon with an open shirt, she with a tight blouse, then hell and doom would be their part on this forum. Now Charlène was every inch The Princess of Monaco, everyone is in praise for her. But hey... apparently we may not expect the head of state of the Holy See, residing in the grandest monumental sites of the world, surrounded by Botticelli, Michelangelo, Bernini, to wear a clean cassock?

Hmmm... ok.

The people who are living near the center are not happy that the center of refugees are near their home.

Prince Albert & Princess Charlene Current Events - Part 4: March 2015 -

Thank you for those who shared the photos of the tournament. Little Jacques is adorable and looks so grown up now that he is walking! I wonder why Gabriella wasn't there? (Not asking to be critical of Charlene or Albert, but genuinely curious). It looks like it's cold in Monaco at the moment as both Charlene and Jacques are wearing warm winter clothing.

Cuteness overload. A thermal quilt hoodie is great until one tries to look right or left. He was being such a good boy!

I wonder if Gabriella was a bit under the weather It seems a bit odd they only brought 1, they would usually bring both twins. But so great to see little Jacque. I love that we get to see these two, ant not just very rare photo released like some other royal kids

Jacques is the heir and therefore, in many eyes, more important

They are both heirs. And I highly doubt for one moment Charlene or Albert thought 'well Gabriella is only second in line, no one cares about her, we should leave her at home' Can you imagine if Harry had been left behind on family events because he was only the second son.

How cute is that pic of P Jacques all smiling and reaching out to the rugby ball! Already a little rugby player in the making.! So nice of P Albert to support his wife and even bringing P Jacques along in the cold weather? Thanks to all who posted.

Jacques is the hereditary prince of Monaco, the heir, Gabriella is second on the line. it is nice to see Jacques

Gabriella is perhaps ill, she has perhaps a cold, as it was very cold and it rains a lot, Princess Charlene prefered to let her at the palace.
It happens very often to see other royal parents attending an event with only the heir.

I was hoping to see also Princess Gabriella, but Jacques was simply adorable. He made such cute faces and seemed tobe very comfortable with the cameras. I wouldn't read too much into the absence of Gabriella though.
