Her brother Gareth attended as well! Here's a photo provided by the Palace that includes him as well.


And here's a very nice additional gallery of the opening of the Monte-Carlo Munchkins Club:

Starbucks does BIG BUSINESS in the world and is a great job creator. The royal family of Monaco very much see their role as more than just ceremonial. They are actually involved in the day-to-day running of the principality--this includes supporting economic interests and benefits for Monaco. A Starbucks in Monaco will provide many jobs for native Monegasques. And let's be real--when one Starbucks pops up, another is usually not far behind.

I am well aware of the business Starbucks does, I'm a gold card member myself. I guess that I'm so use to them popping up everywhere here that when one opens it's just not as big an event. That's all. Just struck me as odd/different that she would be there.

I must admit, however, that Starbucks must pale in comparison to all of the great cuisine and cafes in Monaco.

monaco is a little principauty where an opening of a shop is an event. and inauguring these shops belong to their duties . Prince Albert use to inaugurat opening of shops and of banks. prince Albert uses to inaugurat the openings of shops or banks. he is like the other members of the family involving of supporting ecomics interests and benefits for Monaco. All the inaugurations are the same for them and I think that it is not the last time that we will see Princess Charlene inauguring that sort of shop.

there is a video posted by the gospel of Soweto on there page of facebook. they sang the anthem of South Africa for princess Charlene

You've got that right! All the French inspired foods, especially the pastries! OH my!! And truly a great café trumps Starbucks just about every time. And being that close to France. Don't get me started.
Gee thanks, now I'm seriously craving something crusty and sweet.

She is of course Monegasque now, but Charlene's connection to her homeland is deep and emotional to see.

Thanks melina premiere, that was really beautiful!

Is there anywhere else the video can be watched? It would't load smoothly foe me and then the last few minutes there was no sound or video. Just a static shot.

I'd really love to see this, so any help is appreciated. :)

I really hope by now with 7 or 8 continuous years of residency in Monaco she can conduct and interview in French. If she cannot speak French now, she probably never will.

Article and photos about the future interview with Cyril Viguier and photos of Charlene at the memorial ceremony december 10th. Charlene has a quiet behaviour in contrast with other personalities.
