Some things never change. I just LOVE the fact that whatever the occasion Princess Stephanie cannot help "adjusting" Albert . Maybe it stands out to me since she's younger than him but it seems like Steph is always playing the little mother hen to Albert. Nice to see Melanie on the balcony (I havn't seen that before). Ditto what the others have said, everyone looks great. Andrea and Pierre look like strapping young men and Charlotte looks criminally gorgeous as usual. With her features I think Caroline looks good in dark colors and I liked Stephanie's gloves. The pictures with Charlotte and Alexandra were adorable. Of course Albert has it easy, slap a uniform on almost any guy and you look. For all the talk about him, you see him in his uniform on the balcony and he does look like the fatherly Mediterranean monarch.

Thanks for the gallery. I think this is my favourite royal event by far!

It was amazing to actually see Caroline and Stephanie at the same event... even if their interactions seemed a little icy. There were a few little photos that still showed taht they're sisters, and that's great to see. (I cracked up when I saw this one)

Alexandra looks more and more like the Casiraghi's as she gets older... which is kinda weird, but still true. And what has happened to Pierre adn Andrea??? They seem to have aged ten years in only one! Not so much Andrea, because he seemed a bit ragged the past few years, and is actually looking better, but what about Pierre??

And Melanie! Isn't she beautiful!? And we can't even say that they are the Kelly genes! It's entirely Grimaldi/de Massy for her!

Elisabeth Anne and daughter Melanie did so as well

I'm not necessarily a fan of the cut of Caroline's dress but she still manages to look A-MA-ZING in it, which is making me incredibly jealous I kind of wish she hadn't covered it up with the fur though, not that I have anything against it.

Anyway thanks for the pics iceflower! They're such a pretty family

By the way, are the flowers in the Caroline's bouquet real? I've never seen anything like them before.

They all look great, especially Charlotte.

Just a reminder, Caroline wore this coat in 1997 for the Sainte Devote ceremony. She used it for a second time in December 1997 for the 700 anniversay of the first chucrh in Monaco. A Chanel tweed coat trimmed with pearls. A long time since then, she´s recycling clothes.

I really hope the fur is not authentic.

I thought Princess Caroline looked great, reminded me of something out of the 1920's. They were quite a handsome group and Caroline always has the elegant, regal style about her. Fur or no fur doesn't bother me. Once human beings stop killing other human beings maybe I can worry about the critters but until then I can't seem to work up any outrage over it. I thought the little boys in their (monk?) outfits were cute with their little "bald" caps on, I don't recall seeing that before. All the Monaco National Day festivities are tops with me, it is always such a great blending of glamor, pomp and ceremony along with the familiarity that I've always thought defines Monaco. They can be grand, stylish and altogether 'princely' but still very close to their people, very informal with each other. The Monegasque at their finest!
