I guess there will.
It was nice to watch. Cute at times. I wonder what kind of comments the pictures will provoke. They rarely represent how things really were. Just hope they took pictures of all the sweet moments I saw and don't make people misinterpret things by choosing the wrong pictures.

P. Stephanie looks simple and elegant; P. Caroline very regal as always ( that awful hairdo gives such a severe frame to her features... she should really do something about her hair, don´t you think? ). Unfortunately, both sisters look so aged... P. Alexandra didn't attend this year's festivities. Could her absence be, somehow, related to her father's own absence?

She may be in Paris (or elsewhere) with her father. Even if her parents are not together the last months, Alexandra shoul see her father!

EVERYONE looks great! I love the pics of Princess Alex and Charlotte! Andrea and Pierre, of course, look handsome as always. Princess Caroline - wow - she looks beautiful and elegant from head to toe! Prince Albert looks handsome, as always, and Stephanie looks great, too - her hair has gotten long! The event looks to have been successful....

Thanks to all for the pictures...everyone looks great!

A couple of items of note:

It appears that Stephanie is making a concerted effort to keep her children from Monaco themed events. I can't imagine seeing Pauline, Louis or Camille on the balcony until they get a little older and that is if they choose to do so. Stephanie had a very public growing up and every aspect of her birth, childhood, dating, marriages, divorces, etcs have been dissected and on the cover of tons of tabloids. Is it any wonder if she chooses to shield her children from such a life? Unless something happens to the Casigrahi's, the chances of them suceeding the throne are very silm. So I wouldn't expect to see them on the balcony. In fact, I see them as the future de Massy's: in attendance, low key and supportive of the heirs.

Its great to see Stephanie and Caroline interacting.

Just because we don't see Alexandra with Ernst why are we assuming that they don't see each other? We should also take into consideration that although the paparazzi are usually everywhere, I would hope that Alexandra gets private time with both her parents that we don't see.

To this I would slightly disagree. It is true that Stephanie has always suffered from the public eye in her life, but she also took some profit from this "publicity" Do you think that she would have such a success as a model, or as a swimsuit designer, or a singer, if she was Not the Princess of Monaco. And now she lives a very comfortable life thanks to the Monaco revenues, and these revenues are growing up the last 55 years thanks ALSO to the notoriety of the Princely family. Caroline has understood her obligations, and raised up her children accordingly. Charlotte in example has very fes chances to become the Souvereign, but she participates in the public life.
I understand that Stephanie might not like the public life, but in this case it would be more sincere to live in another spot of the planet, where nobody knows her, and she will not have any advantage of her position.
And do you think that just because Stephanie's children are not participating to the public events, the paparazzis will forget them?

I have to say that despite being very sad not to see Louis, Pauline and Camille with the rest of the family at this particular occasion I agree with Zonk and respect Stephanie's choice.

I totally agree that Stephanie has had the benefit of being a Princess of Monaco and a lot of negative press that she received is a result of her actions. However, perhaps as an adult Stephanie has recognized the shortcoming of being royal and decided to sheild her kids from some of it. If she doesn't take her life into account, she only has to look at the press of her nieces and nephews.

I mean, I as a royal watcher enjoy seeing pictures of the Casigrahi's and Alexandra (now and when they were younger) but don't young children (royal or not) deserve the opportunity to grow up out of the public spot light? I am not sure that Louis, Camille and Pauline will always enjoy this privacy but right now I can take pleasure in the fact that they do. As the Casirgahi's get older and take more public roles, marry and produce children of their own then Louis, Camille and Pauline will surely assume the role of the de Massy, live in the jet set circle, and end up as people we used to know.
