Yeah, something seems really off. It's Christmas and he has a wife and two lovely young children and he turns up to the biggest childrens event of the year in Monaco with his adult nephew? Really?

The absence of Princess Charlene is not really unexpected anymore ,but was hoping to see one of his more reliable sisters at least.

Honestly, Charlene continues to be a lackluster Princess of Monaco. It's getting ridiculous.

Well, I (and I rarely expect much of Charlene) am surprised she isn't there. And I really hope there's a good reason because it's not an onerous engagement. Maybe she's ill - she didn't attend the Christmas Ball as far as I know and I thought she was supposed to.

As to Caroline and Stephanie - would have been great - but seems to me they're damned if they do, damned if they don't. If they turn up they're trying to steal Charlene's limelight, showing off etc. If they don't turn up and neither does Charlene then there is always someone saying they don't do anything, and if they don't then why should Charlene? (Conveniently forgetting the whole Princess Consort thing).

I guess that must be the reason - that she and the twins are ill. But the Palace should communicate directly..

Indeed a different Christmas party from the ones we are used to. All the pics were taken indoors, so I assume they had bad weather. No Princess or twins, surely they would have attended if they could, can only assume they are ill as suggested above.

A disappointment this year. I agree that we need better communication from the Palace PR team.

This must have been so disappointing for the children who no doubt were looking forward to a visit from the Princess. If Charlene was poorly, surely Caroline or Stephanie could have stepped in. A very poor show.

Maybe they already had plans? I don't see why they should anyway - they already help out at appearances where one might expect to see Charlene.

Or maybe this was always the planned appearance...

But I agree that this was a disappointing event although I'm sure the children had a great time anyway.

Dear Florestane, you summarize very well the situation. Charlene is becoming a ghost. She is not able and never will be to jump in Princess Grace and Princess Caroline shoes, I've already got it. I'm really disappointed for Prince Albert.

Albert, Stephanie and Camille watched the Ligue 1 match between Monaco and Guingamp at Stade Louis II yesterday, December 22.

Monaco lost 0:2 - Albert's face speaks volumes..

Does Princess Stephanie normally attend this Mass with Princess Albert or was she standing in for her ever absent sister in law?

Prince Albert and Princess Stephanie inaugurated the suite "Rainier III" at the Hotel de Paris in Monaco today, January 29.

600 m² and a terrace of 135m² - nothing for the average tourist coming to Monaco , but it looks great:
