Thanks a lot rosana - I've moved your post to this thread here as the event also had something to do with the National Day celebrations. The Mount Whitney Sailors participated in a parade through the city, provided tours of the ship, and met with senior local officials. Also while in port, the U.S. ambassador to France hosted the mentioned reception aboard the ship, it marked the 156th anniversary of the independence of Monaco.


One more pic of Albert is included here:

I don't really like Charlene's hat, it's too small. Charlotte's one is too big, and it seems that she so pleased to hide in it.
Both Caroline and Stéphanie look great!

Hum, I know that it is out of subject, but I can't help myself wondering who paid french motorcyclists...
stephanie, this year has a good look..but 'as she has aged badly .. ok. not resorted to surgery, but she shows so many years in more..

The more I see Andrea attending events with Albert and in uniform standing with Caroline and Albert the more I see him as Albert's heir. I don't expect Albert and Charlene to have children, though I hope they will. Before Andrea's wedding I think we will see him change his surname to Grimaldi.

I´ve noticed that from a few years now Pierre looks uncomfortable and annoyed at public events. I know youre supposed to look serious and constrained in formal receptions, but he tries so hard that he often comes across as rude. In the video posted by Iceflower he didnt even applaud when everyone else did! Maybe he just wasnt paying attention, but still...It kind of shocks me, as I had the impression that he was the most outgoing of the Casiraghi Trio as he always seemed cheerful when he was a teenager. Even Andrea who is usually a bit awkward and shy looks more at ease in this kind of events. I wonder why Pierre even attends if he doesnt feel like doing so? I guess Caroline must be very persuasive
Im sorry, I know this thread probably isnt the best place to put this up, its just that the video made me realized it

the order of Saint Charles has different grades, more the order is high more is the sash wider. Charlene has the highest grade just after Albert who is the 'grand maitre' of this order.
the palace did not make a mistake but here there are so many people who are not pleased thet they say,stupid things
Charlene was splendid yesterday evening
There we go again. Not only you are not getting the information you are presenting correct, but you are yet again insulting anyone who only dares to say a little less of Charlene than what you allow. It's about time to stop insulting people and understand not everyone will like what you like and not everyone will say what you want them to say. We are ALL entitled to our opinions, not only you, and our opinions are not stupid.

To you maybe she was splendid; to someone else she may have looked bad. And either case everyone is entitled to say so, without you bashing them.

Your posts are getting more and more aggressive if only someone will say something you don't like about Charlene. I think you need to take a few deep breaths before posting another insult here.

Will there be any tiaras this year? So many questions!

I don't think Charlotte will attend, I doubt Tati and Andrea will, too. I hope Stephanie will attend the gala!

Charlene has really grown into her role and looks and acts every bit the Serene Highness now. The difference between her demeanor now and from even a year ago is simply astonishing.

Nope. It's definitely not my imagination.

I agree with you, but hopefully Pierre and Beatrice will. I love seeing them the most out of all the Casiraghi couples. They are so glamorous and beautiful.

And it would be awesome if they started wearing tiaras!
