Everyone looks great - strange not to see Andrea there. Alexandra is starting to look more like Caroline, too - cute outfit she had on. I love the suits for Caro, Stephanie and Charlotte. I'll watch the videos later. THANKS for keeping us informed!

I agree that Stephanie does look as if she's very sad/unhappy - certainly not focused on the events of the day. I hope she's doing ok.....I guess she doesn't bring her kids to National Day events (at least, not photographed on the balcony)?

I like much more Pierre Casiraghi with short hair rather that with long one. He is a really gentleman when he wants to. The women were all excellent , all well dressed. As for Prince Albert, I found him a little too solid...well; lets said it more clear: fat...

Vanesa.

Congrats to Stephanie for two fabulous outfits today. She looked absolutely stunning at the Opera!

Stephanie at the Opera! I can´t believe it ,she hates it, it was about 15 years she didn´t go. I like Caroline´s dress as usual. Alexandra is so cute in the traditional gown, like Charlotte at her age, it is strange she didn´t wear it before.

I think Pierre looks uncomfortable at the Opera. Like his suit is not fitting well or something! And Stephanie's outfit at Opera was better than the other one IMO

You think?...I always think she looks so much like her father.

I think, as she matures, she's taking on the features of her mother - her eyes are still like her fathers, however. But, as she matures, and the shape of her face is changing, her smile - she is starting to look more like Caroline.

Here are some additional opera pics with less watermarks, the
dress was very unsual for Steph, maybe Caroline has chosen
it for her

Pic 1 ** Pic 2 ** Pic 3 ** Pic 4

Albert had another event yesterday, as part of the national day
celebrations he answered questions on the Internet:

Thanks everybody for the great pics! Apparently Alexandra is growing less resemblant with her father, and is looking more and more Grace Kelly-ish, and smarter than her half sister! In a few years, the razzis will be chasing her. See you later...

It's very interesting to note that obviously, times are changing in Monaco. It's common knowledge that Princess Caroline and Princess Stephanie have been barely on speaking terms for quite some time now while Prince Albert is closer to his younger sister. But now we see the effects on a different level with Princess Stephanie taking over a more public role throughout the National Day celebrations, even appearing in the company of her brother and without Caroline at the opera gala. Looks like the days of Princess Caroline forever acting as 'unofficial First Lady' are over.
Princess Stephanie has certainly lead a colorful life but it's unfortunate that this has turned her into something of a joke to the general public. Princess Caroline is known to be quite a social snob although she herself went through enough 'colorful' episodes in her private life. Maybe her higher rank as Princess of Hannover adds to that air of superiority which IMHO has been oozing from her over the past years, but there's simply no reason to look down on her sister... I wouldn't be surprised to see Stephanies children make National Day appearances in the years to come, it would be the next logic step.
Monaco's future might turn out to be quite interesting especially if Prince Albert does not produce an heir. Historically, the Grimaldis have always been a rather divided family, and it remains to be seen how the struggle for power will be resolved...

Charlotte looks elegant.. its more to the office outfit than to the function. But at least more mature. Simple but I love when she put the scarf on it.. Beautiful!! Now, I see myself wearing that to the office... Hmm, she is a 'trend setter'...

I think Caroline's hat is the same she wore on Willem-Alexander and Maxima's wedding.

The thing is that Charlotte looks so much (or exactly) like Caroline so everyone is wondering what will Alexandra look like, and IMO she'll be somewhere in between Ernst and Caroline, but more like Ernst.
