There seems to be a bit of a loaded atmosphere - even if they are quite serious in the courtyard they usually seem more light hearted at the balcony. Charlene is even more unsmiling than usual, even Albert seems a bit flat. The twins are cute.

Lovely to see Caroline with her grandchildren who are cute - she looks more relaxed with them. Little Stefano is a cherub. Stephanie is very relaxed and enjoying the time with her two eldest.

The Prince and Princess are always a bit more solemn, as carabiniers, authorities, organizations, civilians and other sections of Monaco bring homage to them. That is only natural.

I was comparing with previous years - and on the balcony Albert most certainly isn't usually solemn. As for Charlene... I know nobody goes round grinning like a fool 24/7 but she has managed to smile in the past.

I thought that the little orange balloon incident would hit the headlines. There was even a video replay of the crucial moment.

This has been the biggest family turn out there has been for a while, with only Camille, Charlotte and P Charlene’s mother absent from the respective families.

The cutest moment for me was when P Gabriella kissed M Barsi on the cheek. And both the twins dropped a toy from the balcony.

Thank you everyone for sharing the photos and videos of National Day. It was wonderful to see the youngest generation all there; Stefano has indeed become quite a beautiful little boy! He seems very curious - loved the photo of him waving through the balcony. Gabriella and the little orange balloon was so sweet, it's always lovely to see her and Jacques together. I wonder why Camille wasn't there; perhaps she wants to lead a more private life and decided not to attend the celebrations, or was simply unwell.

EDIT: Noblesse & Royautes have a menu of the National Day dinner from 2017: http://www.noblesseetroyautes.com/me...negasque-2017/

I was wondering the same - perhaps a new family order or gift from Albert?

Is it not a blue cornflower to commemorate the recent centenary of the Armistice? I can't really see clearly enough but that's what I thought they were - often worn in France like the British Legion poppies we wear here in the UK in November.

I could be wrong - as I said I can't really see closely enough.

Ah thanks.
It doesn’t seem to be at the opera this year.
Do we know what they are going to watch?

Well thank goodness for the children for adding a ray of sunshine and uplifting the mood at what is an otherwise sullen affair this year.

Photos of Princess Caroline over the past few months have shown her wearing a lot more colour and patterns, very flattering.

Always great seeing the kids. Caroline sure had her hands full.

I hadn't realized charlotte had her second son. Surprised by the name but congratulations.

Thanks for sharing photos and links

What the heck is Gabriella wearing on her feet? Surely it's not black boots with that lovely red dress.

It looks like she wore dark trousers and similar trainers like Jacques did, see here.


Still some more lovely photos from yesterday:

You're absolutely right - I'd completely forgotten that cornflowers are commemorative flowers for the armistice in France (which I shouldn't have, because it was mentioned on the news over here around Remembrance Day!). The royal guard in this photo behind Stephanie is wearing one too, and President Macron is also wearing the same cornflower badge here (including the French colours).

Aaah, India tiptoeing to peek and Stefano inserting himself between the balusters and waving... too adorable. Happy to see this generation participating together in National Day events. Pierre is one hot papa, Beatrice looks proud of Stefano who looks like her twin, Andrea and Tatiana look like old hands at this parenting stuff at this point, they both look like a solid couple, Alexandra is such a preppy, Pauline's outfit is interesting but she looks skinnier than usual and older than she is, Maximilian looks like India, and Francesco looks more like Pierre. The twins are gorgeous, you can tell they have charmed lives, and will have the world at their feet. All the adults could use more smiles on their faces, though Caroline does look happy with her bunch. This year's outfits seem very formal and "royal" compared to previous years //end of ramble lol
