Look at where Princess Antoinette is wearing her sash at the gala close to her neck.

I hope the link will work

Who is the priest at the opera gala seated with the Grimaldis?

The whole family looks lovely, and I do love to see jewels with a history, and on that note Princess Caroline provided one. :)

I think he is a personal friend of the family. On the night of Albert and Charlene's wedding banquet I saw a picture of him escorting Princess Caroline.

Although we missed Charlotte attending the National Day festivities, what about Stephanie's children? I don't recall seeing any pics, similarly previous years I think(?)

Looking at the fotos on the balcony she appears not to look him in the eye at all and stands with distance between them. But these shots are taken in a matter of seconds with a rapid shutter and we know how media deliberately pick fotos to create gossip.

I just thin and have always felt that she is not completely at ease being in the public eye so I can imagine that this would mean that she certainly would not openly display her affections for her husband on a balcony in front of thousands of people.

More informal fotos show them having a relaxed and warm manner with each other and whilst they are not all touchy feely like Fred and Mary I still think they look pretty rock solid together.

A beautiful photo of the couple during the cermony

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater

On some photos, she is serious and on many photos, she saluted the people or she sent kisses like on this photos or she put her hand on her heart to say them she lives them. and the third appareance to the balcon with Albert she said in french ( Merci) and they left the balcon

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater

But the one I prefere is the one which was published by the palace on the official page of FB but I ask myself why we did not see Andréa and tatiana at the balcon and above all why they did not attend the gala evening?

I think Andrea and Tatiana were at one of the other windows. I saw a picture of them.

Yes that's what I thought. Quite odd given they are Monagasque citizens and have every reason to celebrate the National Day. I noticed members of the De Massey family were there. It would be nice if this were one occasion in the year when the whole family are together.

Agree! Stephanie's children never attended any celeabration with the only exception of the Circus Festival, and, hopefully Pc. Albert wedding.
I found even odd that the 2 olders did not attend Pcs Rainier funeral! They were 13y and 11y old, for me an age you are grown enough to accompany your grand father!
The official reason was that Stephanie wanted them to have a quite and protected childhood! But the 2 older are adults now, Pauline is compeeting, or going to fashion shows! What would be the problem to attend the National day?

They also attended Prince Albert's enthronement celebrations in 2005.

Louis, Pauline and Camille are all at an age where they can decide for themselves. So if they wanted to finally attend the official National Day celebrations, no one would prevent them from doing so. I'm pretty sure that by now it's their own decision not to attend.

Of course they are in age to decide by themselves, same do the Casiraghis. What i said is that IMO Stephanie raised them as if they were not concerned, and Caroline raised them as if they are fully concerned.
This is because now all kids being adults, the Casiraghis decide to assist, and Stephanie's kids do not assist.

They are likely praying for the Sovereign Prince.

That's correct - it's the prayer for the sovereign in Latin and French:

"Domine, salvum fac Principem nostrum Albertum, et exaudi nos in die qua invocaverimus te.

Seigneur, accorde le salut à notre Prince Albert, et exauce-nous au jour où nous t'invoquons!"

That means" Lord, save our Prince Albert and mercifully hear us when we call upon thee".

.

In addition to the video links of the medal ceremonies posted on the previous page of this thread, here's another nice one of the ceremony for the "ordres de Saint-Charles et de Grimaldi". Prince Albert attended together with Princess Charlene, Princess Caroline and Princess Stephanie:
