The problem with modern day Hollywood is that you can'nt hardly call the place and it's people "glamourous" anymore.It's a place full of tacky people and their plastic faces.Where B list people could turn up on the red carpet just because they know the right people,the likes of the Kardashians,Ashton Kutchner etc.It's also losing a lot of viewers year after year..hardly a place to promote Monaco.

Now,if the upcoming biopic of Princess Grace would turn out to be a smashing hit,getting an Oscar nomination for next year then of course they could go,as a tribute.

If they want to promote Monaco in the US,they should do it the way DEnmark did. Make an official trip to the US (he is half- american after all) and have a Monaco week or something promoting the country..they have good monegasque artisans I believe..promote them!! Monaco is not all about the casino or glamour.

Well the Oscars do have one of the largest viewing audiances of any event on earth so reminding people that Monaco exists cannot be a bad thing. People do what ever they can to sell their business and in Albert's case Monaco is his business.

Of course American people know Monaco do exist and it's not precisely for a good reason..just google search this couple and read the unflattering remarks they do get from the commenters.Oscar night will be no different..they'll be fair game to the snarky comments..again.But yeah whatever,as long as they get to promote Monaco,everything's dandy.

I recall you that Princess Grace received all the hollywood stars in the palace who bad looking, but she didnot care. At each times she went to Usa, she visited them.
She was also a movie star and she wanted in 1962 return to hollywood to turn again movie whith Hitchcook but she didn 't it.
The Princess Grace foundation reward and encourage people who want to be movie star or singer and one day or other you will see them at the oscar night to try to get this prestigious prize.
Last september, There was the mont Blanc gala who made a tribute to Princess Grace, there were singers, eccentric movies stars models who came to attend a spectacle of music hall at the opera and to attend to a diner at the casino
In Monaco, there are the festival of tv where there are eccentric movies stars and besides Monte Carlo, there is the festival of Cannes where Princess Grace attended at her times, princess Caroline and Albert attended too
Burnt, Albert, Charlene will not wear the diademe Ocean or the saint Charles sash, they are not fool. They did not do that sort of idioties and they will not do this. But Why when Albert and Charlene do some thing , they are critized,
I remember all the critics about the wedding out of a cathedral. After the wedding nobody did anything , the wedding was very beautiful and the music was prestigious.
And for those who think that Albert and Charlene did any thing apart to go in holidays during the christmas times and spend some days in the snow during the winter like other royals as Sweden, denmark or other, I advice to read the site of the palace and you will see that albert is very busy and Charlene is getting very active

Of course some Americans know Monaco exists, but the Oscars have a worldwide audiance. Probably the only event that gets a comparable audiance would be the opening of the Summer Olympics.

I think they would want to go there as much to attract movie stars as be on tv. Remember, they are looking for the ultra rich, not the broad public.Monaco has always marketed themselves differently from the other royal houses and been well rewarded for it. No one complained when Will and Kate went to LA this summer.

Personally, I would rather see Gad and Charlotte go. Gad was in 2 successful American films this year. Going to the Oscars would be great for his career. Charlotte would still draw attention to Monaco and she can be really glamorous when she wants to.

Most people outside of these boards have no idea who Charlotte is so her appearing at the Oscars would largely go unnoticed. Probably even fewer people in America know who Gad is. Their attendance would do little to raise the name of Monaco.

Considering that Monagasque Royalty hasn't attended the Oscars before I suspect there is a specific reason for the invite this year. PG is thirty years dead and I am guessing that the Academy is planning on honoring her to mark this anniversary as part of the Oscars ceremony. It would thus make sense to have TSH's at the event.

I have mixed views on Albert & Charlene attending the Oscars. Do I think it’s beneath them? yes. Why do I think that? Because there really is no reason for them to be there. If Grace were getting honored in some way or if they traditionally attended I may think differently- but I fear this will be seen as very desperate attempt for Albert & Charlene to drum up some much needed publicity for themselves. I fear the snarky, nasty comments and press will return- It’s Hollywood remember- they can say anything about ANY subject.

But on the other hand-, if you look at from a business and reality standpoint- it may not be so bad. Fact is they do not have the world wide popularity that Grace and Rainier have- or that William and Kate now have. Like- said- Hollywood came to Grace- she never had to go hawk her image for anything. They came to her, the press hunted her and her family relentlessly PA & CW do not have that situation or the luxury of people always coming to them. Like many places in the world- Monaco’s economy is hurting now. PA & CW may have no choice but to pimp out their image sometimes —kind of like the Kardashians/Snookies,etc. But say what you want about the Kardashians- the press may call them desperate for fame and publicity but the business fact is - they banked $65 million last year and you cannot argue they get press. The publicity can’t get any worse for PA & CW than the negative press surrounding their wedding and honeymoon-. Their image is kind of defined like that anyway- so why not go with it- make some money and bring the Hollywood wanabees to Monaco. As long as they spend money and help increase tourism- who cares. It’s a different time there now. Forget the –glamour image blah, blah , blah, blah - think reality and business .

PA & CW are doing everything they can. They are out and about in Monaco and other places-smiling and doing their jobs. They just don’t have the star power or media popularity of their predecessors – so they have to change the game plan and work with what they have. So I say- go for it. I wish them the best.

As I said in my last post, I think it is unlikley that they are just turning up at the Oscars for no reason. It's 30 years since Grace died and I do think that she will be specially mentioned at the event and that is why they have been invited.

Prince Albert has always visited NY and LA in the US often, he has many business dealings and charity events here. So, this may be a case of him attending to additional business along with the Oscars. Also he has a daughter in CA, Jazmin, and this could be an opportunity for him to visit her as well.

There are only two ways a person can get inside the auditorium for the Academy Awards. One is to be invited, the other is to be a "seat filler." I can't imagine Albert and Charlene being the latter.

It's the Burger King who represents the hamburger chain of the same name. He creeped everyone out so much that sales actually fell and the poor guy that played him was fired.

Well, I am thrilled that they are attending. More lovely pictures.

It may have something to do with the upcoming picture "Grace of Monaco" which is currently in pre-production. It may have to do with an award for Grace. It may have to do with publicising Monaco.

Whatever. !! I am going to enjoy it.
