They all seem's really happy from Sacha presence this year, mostly his Grandma P. Caroline that always look like the most loving person in this family.
Even thought i found it really odd Charlotte's absent the second year in a row, last year she were heavily pregnant but what happend this year?
Even the children and the granchildren of the late princess antoinette were there so i'm finding it really weird that Charlotte didn't attened.

The adorable 18-month old Sacha Casiraghi stole the show at the Monaco National Day celebrations as he made his first public appearance. : Woman's Day Sorry if reposted, but I haven't seen it before! :-)

I saw that Elisabeth-Anne de Massy was there, but did Christian de Massy attend?

Charlene's tummy is huge! Maybe see some more high-quality images or videos and you will see it

I think Christian de Massy is the man standing between Caroline and Andrea in this picture:

And he's accompanied by his two children and son in law, I guess.

It's nice to see the family get together and it's great to see Charlene again. She certainly does look rather large, but that's natural. I love the photo of Princess Alexandra with little Sacha. If that's not a cuteness overload, then I don't know what is. They're not members of the Princely Family, but the Duke and Duchess of Castro (2) also attended the National Day celebrations. The Duke and Duchess reside in Monte Carlo, and I do believe that they are close friends of the Grimaldis.

Do we know if Sacha is wearing the Monegasque National Dress, or just a smart outfit?

Lovely to see so many members of the family there. Sacha is so cute and I loved what he was wearing. I can't wait to for Charlene to have her twins. Wish her all the best!
It's just another opportunity for the Daily Mail to mention their Saint (I'm not being snarky here, I like Catherine a lot). It reminds me very much of the articles in The Express that would claim Diana found a cure for cancer, or something like that.

I respectfully disagree about Alexandra, she looks her age to me.

I'm curious about Sacha's outfit as well. I can only find images of ladies' Monegasque national dress online. But his outfit looks more like some German ethnic dress I've seen. Perhaps a nod to his grandmother's (empty) title of Princess of Hanover. I bet she loves to lord that HRH over the rest of the family. Anyway, I don't care for his outfit. It's a bit too Hitler youth for my liking.

As for Alexandra I agree with you. I think we often expect a young lady of her age to be dressing like a sexed up adult woman(think of for example what Kendall an Kylie Jenner were wearing at that age). Charlotte Casiraghi made very different fashion choices when she was Alexandra's age so I don't think it's Caroline that is trying to dress Alexandra 'young'. I think she is making her own choices and I like her modest, age appropriate outfits.



Edited to add: I was looking at some books I have about national dress and Sacha's outfit definitely reminds me of some of them.

Sasha's outfit looks German to me. I think he looks great. I was also impressed how well behaved he was for being 1 and 1/2 yrs. old. That's really tough for a little kid.

If you have a national day in your country and you wear a traditional costume, imo it wouldn't be a good idea to choose a national costume from a different country

Anyway, i'm not familiar with the national dress of Monaco, but if you look at this image:
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-4hzByJNYMm.../mo1981-1g.jpg
That's similar to what little Sasha is wearing (national dress usually has some regional variations)

Glad you find the thought so hilarious. It still makes sense to me since his grandmother is a German princess by marriage. The outfit still looks German to me. It's similar to the link you posted but still more like German regional costumes I have seen.

.

What I missed this year is the usual large number of great pics of the gifts presentation at the Red Cross headquarters and the gift presentation to the elderly people by Princess Stephanie at the Foyer Rainier III.

The Palace only provided one pic of Prince Albert and Princess Stephanie at the Red Cross headquarters, it looks as if the international press was excluded this year which is a pity because it's always been so heartwarming to see the happy and pleased elderly people and the pics had a symbolic power and exemplary function.

At least we can watch some more videos (also including one of Princess Stephanie presenting the gifts).

I think Caroline wore the same long coat as per Andrea's religious wedding in Gstaad.

The outfit Sacha is wearing is equal to the ones the children of Lauren and Andres Santo Domingo wore to Andra and Tatiana's wedding. Coco Brandolini's daughter wore those clothes too. I think they were the pageboys and flowergirls. So perhaps Sacha wore his too.

EDIT: thinking twice, it can't be a recicled outfit for Sacha. His parent's wedding was almost a year ago, he was much smaller/shorter back then. He's either wearing an outfit another kid wore at the wedding or this one is brand new one made for him, which is likely. But why would they make him an outfit equal to the wedding's? It must have some special meaning. I think it's either related with Monaco or Switzerland.
