Elisabeth is starting to dress herself, you can totally notice that
They are all so beautiful and you totally get the family vibe, you can tell that the siblings spend a lot of time together and with their parents, it's really nice to see :)

I love how some of the photos where Mathilde is trying to be loving with her older children, they don't seem to be extremely enthusiastic by their mother display of affection. Elisabeth and Gabriel are definitely in their teenagery mood right now.

Lovely to see the family on holiday and, as iceflower said, it is a highlight of the year! I enjoyed last years more though as it was beside the seaside and everyone wore blue and white!

LOL!! I picked up on that too. W/out a doubt, they're starting that "Mom...Will you stop touching me in public!!" Stage.

Sigh...Growing up so fast.

Lovely pictures and that one of Mathilde and Phillipe...They look like teenagers on a date. They're looking into each other's eyes and there's no one else around AFATC. Still smitten after all these years and wonderful to see.

It was lovely indeed, but I don't like when they coordinate too much. I know those kind of details are planned and surely they know we know, but this way it's more natural...less staged
