Melanie's tribute was quite touching

Zonk 03-24-2011 08:50 AM

What did she say Bones?

My French is sorely lacking. Is Christopher there as well?

Her grandmother would be very proud of her.

Are there any foreign Royals at the Funeral Mass?

Bones 03-24-2011 08:53 AM

How she faced her illnesses, what joy for life she had, how she loved people etc, devoted to her Catholic faith, how she was an inspiration to everyone.

Not that I have seen but the camera is sticking mostly on the priests, but I wouldn't really expect to see any.

I don't think so. If so, I guess they would have been placed in the first rows,
but I couldn't see any. Princess Antoinette's work and family relations were
mainly concentrated on Monaco, so that's understandable.

Melanie's speech has indeed been very touching, especially in combination
with the choral singing.

Lots of nuns also in the congregation!

Yes I was thinking that myself,I was hoping that a Spanish Royal would be there as they were quite close with Rainier & Grace.

I think I saw Charlotte take communion...tsk,tsk,tsk :whistling:

Why the tsk,tsk,tsk ?

She's RC or so I believe.

Bones 03-24-2011 09:19 AM

Yes, but far as I know she's still living with Alex ... and I doubt they're sleeping in twin beds ;)

And someone better tell the Charlene thread that she didn't take communion so it looks like she's Protestant again (sigh), of course neither did Caroline which surprised me.

Ianna 03-24-2011 09:20 AM

You're welcome, An Ard Ri!:smile:

And You're right for Charlotte, Bones..;)
