Charlotte is the only one absent. Beautiful Beatrice, her wonderful children..Elegant Tatiana..Alexandra, alone, smiling and very fresh..Carolina, charmant..Charlene, elegant, but impassive..Not a smile and from the videos you can notice a lot .. Never change expression, even the walk, the trend, she seems an automaton .. out of context. Prince Albert, instead, always sunny ... also Andrea and Pierre, beautiful and radiant.

Is the mass for Princess Grace because of her 90th Birthday last week or is there some other reason too?

Prince Jacques is wearing for the first time the Carabinier’s uniform ! It’s pity that they don’t stand next their parents in the court of honour just before the mass.

Yas, finally: Princess Stéphanie has a very good haircut that flatters her! She looks beautiful and stylish.

This is the second consecutive National Day that Charlotte has missed.

There's Mass every National day at Monaco Cathedral and attended by the Princely and extended Princely Family.

Yes, I know, but this year Princess Grace is mentioned in the prayers. I didn't notice that in the last years.


Some people here say, that Princess Charlene doesn't look like she wants to be at some events, doesn't like to attend them. Well... what would you say about the Hereditary Prince Jacques then? :P

Some lovely new touches to this year’s celebrations: P Jacques looking ever so handsome in uniform and a special song composed especially for him. Add to that the beautiful rendition of “Amazing Grace” in memory of P Grace, and P Albert and P Stephanie still emotional after all these years since their mother’s passing. And of course, P Charlene lovingly supporting her husband through those difficult moments.

For me it's a drama to see Charlene at official events. No smile, empty eyes, like screeming out "help, get me out of here".
She seems absolutely not happy with anything concerning her role as a Princess of Monaco

The amorousnes from the beginning of this love story has totally gone.
Sad to see

I found it perplexing watching the princely couple together today. It reminded me of the dreadful tour by Charles and Diana. The sadness emanating from them both is palpable. Whatever is going on, I hope they can work through it.

I’ve seen more life in a mannequin. She needs to readjust her attitude or leave. She wanted the titles and the lifestyle. Well, she got it.

How do you know she wanted the title and the lifestyle?

I liked her white outfit today. Looking forward to seeing pictures from the opera gala tonight.

The white pantsuit outfit was lovely, but seemed somewhat out of place for National Day.

For me at least the children and grandchildren of Princess Caroline, along with the twins, make or break this event. I would pay no attention anymore without them.

This year would have marked Princess Grace's milestone 90th birthday, which might be why there was special mention of her at Mass today.

She was tied to his hip for years. She even accompanied him on international trips — something she doesn’t do now.

People can change. They have a family now. And a principality of just two square kilometer, one is soon out-princessed there. Note that Gracia not for nothing longed to the bottle to survive the unbearable lightness of life in Monte-Carlo. We will see how things develop.

Well, she is really strange, but I don't think, that it is something trouble between P.Albert and her. She hooked on him, tried to smile him. But... in the video from yesterday I noticed, that Princess Caroline had some strange glimpse for Ps. Charlene...
