This year, there is only one day between them !

Corpus Christi is always on a Thursday, but Saint-Jean is moveable.

From 18h30, there is a Special Mass in the Cathedral, followed by a Procession through the streets of Monaco.

It's also known as Fete-dieu or as "Corpus Christi".

It also celebrates Midsummer Day or Summer Solstice.
We have those in Ireland too!

Will The Princely Family be taking part?

Half right

Corpus Christi is always on a Thursday but its a moveable feast.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moveable_feast

Saint John's Day is a fixed Holy Day & is always June 24th.

Now they hold hands. I guess that's an irreversible proof that they are love match...

Her face looks odd. By the time of her wedding it will look unrecognizable.

At this point, I am not sure anything they do would prove its a love match to you. They hold hands they are being phony to prove its a love match...they don't hold hands...Its a business arrangement and its still wrong. Nothing is ever right

Charlene and Albert are two adults who both know the score.

If they didn't hold hands this close to the wedding, can you just imagine the snickering and speculating??

I have said all along that they have a relaxed, loving air of a couple that is too old to be starry eyed in the clouds, but young enough to feel the optimism and happiness that couples normally feel in the run up to their wedding.

Well, they never hold hands. After the critics, they do.
It's my observation, but, of course everybody can think whatever they want.
The dress is quite nice.

It is amazing, you found one nice thing to say, the dress. Her face is gorgeous, so you should have your eyes checked.

Haha, yes, dress and shoes are nice. But we don't agree in the face...(..)

You must have missed the photos because I have seen them. They were even caught on Palace grounds by the paparazzi during the 2006 Grand Prix.

It looks very much like a Corpus Christi Procession as it was also that RC Feast Day yesterday .Perhaps it was a mix of the 2 Holy/Feast Days (The Nativity of St John the Baptist & Corpus Christi).

I don't recall seeing members of the Princely Family attending it before but I could be wrong.

PA and Charlene (and possibly other family members) were there at the Mass.
They were standing behind the prie-dieu (prayer stall), but not in the Cathedral, but at the Carabiniers base.
I didn't see any photos of other family members.

But yesterday - apart from the Feast of St. John (la Saint-Jean) - was also the anniversary of the couple's engagement.

Beautiful solemn pics, but I must say Charlene looked to be a bit stressed out at the beginning, but by the end she was smiling. I can't imagine all the stress she must be under with the wedding only one week away!

ps: nice having you back, iceflower, I've missed the links you post on a daily basis, something I could never be bothered to do, leastways on a daily basis, yegods!


ETA: pic #3 reminds me of a maternity dress, shades of Jackie O', just think by this time next year she could be wearing one, or else have a little babe by then.
