I just saw on Monaco info that there will be showing a lot of activity around the Fete Nationale.
Now showing Prince Albert honoring people with the Medailles D'Honneur aux Benevoles.
Tomorrow at 10:30 it starts with Charlene and Stephanie handing out gifts to the Red Cross. And after this nearly the whole day they'll show something!

I can't post anything on the National Day 2011 yet. But I found something interesting: the schedule, and I think that's the program at Monaco info for the days. So maybe one of the mods can place it there!

I wonder if he will make his wife a Dame Grand Cross of the Order of St. Charles as part of the National Day celebrations. I think it would be a nice time to do so.

Nathalie Cox 11-16-2011 06:49 PM

Don't think me wrong, but...did Charlene do something that worths she receives that order, or just because she is the wife of the Sovereign she has to receive it?

NGalitzine 11-16-2011 06:55 PM

Well her late mother in law received the Order of St Charles after her civil wedding ceremony so I would suggest being the Consort of the Sovereign Prince is qualification enough......much like in any other monarchy. Guess we will have to wait to see her wearing the order to know what Albert has decided.

I didn't know that, thanks!

Mary of Denmark received and was pictured wearing The Danish Order of the Elephant before she even married Prince Frederick and Daniel Westling received and wore The Order of the Seraphim on his wedding day. Likewise in Britain Prince Philip received the Order of the Garter before marrying Princess Elizabeth in 1947 ie if you are a senior Royal you don't have to EARN your stripes!

Nathalie Cox 11-16-2011 07:15 PM

Ok, i guess then we'll see her wearing the Order in the Opera Gala. Or in the Balcony? I think if she has it, she'll wear it on the Opera Gala. With the Ocean Tiara. I would suppose that.
Is it Stephanie or Caroline that has one of those Orders? of St Charles or of Grimaldi. I think i read it somewhere but i'm not sure.

NGalitzine 11-16-2011 07:22 PM

Caroline received the Order of St Charles from her father. She received the Order of Cultural Merit from Albert. Stephanie received the Order of the Grimaldi from Albert.

Tiggersk8 11-17-2011 12:30 AM

Is the thin red and white Order sash we've seen in portraits of Grace the Grimaldi Order or The Order of St. Charles? Never knew Monaco had more than the one till I started reading the postings in this thread. Thanks for the new info Everyone, as my knowledge of Monaco and her Royals is pretty basic. :o)

probably. But i'm not sure if she will wear it at the Opera. Caroline used to wear it at the Opera but has stopped to do since 2006.

Smush 11-17-2011 05:28 AM

I also had no idea of the Grimaldi women wearing orders :biggrin:

Edit: I'm watching Monaco info right now but they don't seem to go live, at least not now.

Wonderful photographs. Charlene has become quite a busy Princess indeed. Good for her as she really seems to be enjoying her new role. Nice to see Princess Stephanie with them as well.
