The theme of this year's Rose Ball has been released, it's the "Bal de la Rose Mo-naco-Town"!

Mo-naco-Town as to the Motown record label founded in Detroit. The evening is dedicated to
the years 1960-1970, the time of the soul music in the USA and the decoration will include
the scenery of Detroit, abandoned factories, broken windows, walls of brick and metal, all in
black and white. Glamorous table decorations are planned in contrast to that.

Due to the death of Princess Antoinette last night, Prince Albert, Princess Caroline
and Charlene Wittstock have cancelled their attendance at the Rose Ball 2011.
Instead Princess Caroline's children will represent the family at this year's ball.

What a thoghtful gesture ( altough i thought the Ball would be canceld or postponed... )! Like i've always believed, the Casiraghi siblings, would one day be called to fulfill their duties towards the Principality. Sadly, the day has come. I hope they'll perform their task with dignity and grandeur. :rose:

Sadly, it's always more exciting & glamorous when the Casiraghis are in attendance. And it would cost too much to cancel the day before or the day of.

FanofMonaco 03-19-2011 12:01 PM

It's not fair to the attendees to cancel within a day or 2 of the event. People have paid alot of money and flown in from all over the world to attend the Rose Ball. They made an excellent compromise. PA and PC not going and probably the DeMasseys and the Casiraghis taking over. They're old enough to handle it now.

Nathalie Cox 03-19-2011 12:07 PM

^I agree. But i don't know if the De Massys will go. I'm having my doubts with them. But we shall see.
Even thought they are old enough to handle this, it will be something very important for them. Mama won't be there, neither uncle Al. I think this is like a test of fire (?) for them. But i'm sure they will do it ok.

The de Massy's are Antoinette's offspring and she 's only Albert's and Caroline's aunt.
I would be surprised it the de Massy family would be there. My guess it will just be the Casiraghi's

Lumutqueen 03-19-2011 01:29 PM

Iceflowers post said that it would be Princess Caroline's children who would be present at the ball this year. To see the De Massy's would be 'weird' for want of a better word.

FanofMonaco 03-19-2011 04:02 PM

I meant the DeMassey's will not be there. It's their mother and grandmother.

Thanks so much! They look great!

Lumutqueen 03-19-2011 04:20 PM

Charlotte looks so confident with her self. She reminds me of someone I just can't think who.

They look sad.

Nathalie Cox 03-19-2011 04:32 PM

Well, i don't think they are going to enter with a big smile, they are in deuil....

Andrea is making a speech in Anotinette honor?

Moonmaiden23 03-19-2011 05:01 PM

They all look gorgeous, elegant and subdued...just as they should.

Caroline's children are a true credit to their mother, and to the Principality.

A really difficult evening, but Princess Antoinette has loved the ball as well,
we've seen her attending up until old age, so I feel it's good the way it's
been handled..

I think Antoinette who lived such an amazing full life and loved that ball, would have been happy to see her great nephews and niece attend the ball. She lived life to its fullest, and I'm sure she'd want those she left behind to do so as well.

It has been said the best way to honor those who have passed, is to live your life, just to keep them within your heart.
