Both Princesses are beautiful and both is obvious that they are doing nothing against ageing, it is their choice and is absolutely respectable.

Nevertheless, being both in the same lever of "lack" of any surgery and other artifices, Stephanie looks much older that Caroline, despite that she is 8 years younger.
And please don't start reacting, this is not devaluating Stephanie at all, she is a wonderful person, full of quality and beauty. For me is just a pitty that life has marked her so much! Appearing exactly her age, and not so older, that she looks now would not cancel all her other qualities.

I can't understand the fuss about women ageing. No one seems to worry about men ageing.

Stephanie has a "lived-in face" - she has had a very varied, exciting and sometimes painful life, and it seems to me that she does not have many regrets - rather like the singer Edith Piaf ("Je ne regrette RIEN" - I regret nothing).

I wish you were right, maybe you are. Stéphanie is a very tender person, wonderful mother, life has not always been tender with her, and this is shown to her face. Neither for Caroline, but Caroline seems to be stronger.

In any case, both are wonderful.

Fireworks must be a really awesome show at night. But it's a nice picture this one.

Thanks alot for the first wonderful pics of the Red Cross
event today, Radker18 and giov! Seems to have been
a relaxed event with lots of fun as well, that is very nice
to see and once more great for the elderly people!


Please let us not discuss any age topics again, that's the
way life goes and we should concentrate on the great
events themselves!

The women look amazing, Stephanie does look quite a bit older.
Albert looks quite wary of the fact he is surrounded by 2 powerful and strong women.

I think all this talk about aging is a matter of perspective. Yes, Steph has a lot of wrinkles for her age, but when I look at her, especially when she smiles, I see a very youthful person!

Caroline and Stephanie have a young spirit in spite of their wrinkles.

During today's medal ceremony, Sebastian already posted 3 pics
of, the sibblings' cousin Elisabeth Anne de Massy was honored
with a medal as well. That's really great to see in my eyes as
she supports the family's work that much!

Oh yes, Iceflower, I am also of you opinion; this is a gentle gesture of Price Albert, and Elisabeth Anne de Massy deserves this honour.

I'm glad that Elizabeth Ann was honored with a medal, she deserves it due to her contributions and support to several events and foundations in Monaco, specially the Animal Society which her mother has supported all these years.

It's great to see the 3 Grimaldi siblings together on this ocassion, they all are doing a great job like always.

Pics 18.11.2009

Looking at your time zone I think you still are a bit too early, Bones.

The National Day (Fête du Prince) itself is on November 19, Prince
Rainier's name day. All the other events are arranged around that day


First wonderful pics from today:


Princess Stephanie of Monaco at the Foyer of Rainier III to distribute
presents to Monaco citizens on November 18, 2009 in Monaco.

I'm sure they'll be. Tomorrow.
Now The Grimaldi siblings are doing the traditional: giving presents, medals...
but I'm sure the Casiraghis will appear tomorrow.

There are two main Orders - the Order of Saint Charles, and the Grimaldi Order. with three grades in each - Commander, Officer and Knight.

Elisabeth-Ann de Massy is now Commander of the Grimaldi Order because of her services to tennis.

Other Commanders: the President of Monaco Football Club, the President of the Supreme Tribunal, the General Director of UNESCO and the Monaco Consul in Geneva.

Officers and Knights:

Michael Smurfit (who is trying to get PA to Ireland); PA's own lawyer Thierry Lacoste; the Monaco Consuls at Duesseldorf, Antwerp, Istanbul, Rotterdam, the Czech Republic, Brussels, Quito and the Bahamas.
The Executive Director of UN AIDS; The director of the Princess Grace Theatre; a director of the Grimaldi Forum.

A nice touch was to give a medal to the Mayor of Ventimiglia (Vintimille) next door, right on the Italian border. It's where many Monegasques and French do their shopping!

The list is not complete and contains many government officials, bankers etc. and a sprinkling of those working in environmental organisations.
