I did not see Elisabeth Anne de Massy and her children.
At the Te Deum I spotted Christian and I think his daughter as wel as the Knecht family.

Do both Wittstock brothers live in or around Monaco?

The pics posted on FB by the Palace are really lovely. I know we can't speculate about pregnancy on this forum so I'm not going to, all I will say is that if Albert and Charlene don't have anymore children they should still be more than delighted with the two they have. Watching them on the balcony today was a real joy as they are obviously very pleasant children with lots of character and I look forward to seeing them grow in the years to come.

Albert and Charlene have no charisma and glamour.

The glamour moment came in the form of Pierre Casirghi’s family. My,what a good looking children. Beatrice looking so chic and elegant. They reminded me of the golden years of the Caroline /Stefano era. I always waited for their pictures during the Monaco National Day circa 80s/early 90s.. they never disappoint in terms of charisma,elegance and glam. Today,it’s just ,meh. Albert lacking the charisma.

I wonder why Charlotte was absent?

She was missed, imo.

I didn't miss her, IMO her contribution is to stand appallingly dressed giving the impression that she has a constant bad smell up her nose.

I couldn't spot her either, but here's a photo of her family.


And here are some first photos of the opera this evening:

The Princess of Hanover look very patriotic in the Monegasque colours.

According to RoyalHats.net, Princess Charlene and Princess Gabriella's outfits together make the Monegasque flag.

Completly agree with You!

Grace of Monaco attended many events when She was Princess, as well as Caroline when She replaced her mother.

As usual; it was the princely children who stole the show - loved Gabriella's expressions and India's little doll who was wearing her own formal royal outfit! Francesco is a beautiful little boy and he looks like he'll resemble Beatrice a lot.
Agree with those who said Charlene looked completely expressionless, there's definitely something going on behind closed doors IMO.

My apologies you are correct. When first looking at the pictures I mistook Stefano for Rafael.

Charlene looks miserable, surely everyone around her feels it too.

I see photos of Princess Charlene smiling at family members which is most important, IMO. Perhaps she’s trying to be dignified at events. Didn’t people complain when she was dating Prince Albert that she was too casual / non-royal?

Nothing strange-a very nice black suit and dressy white blouse. It's better and more flattering than that red dress/coat Caroline is wearing.

The kids are lovely. Charlene's biggest contribution to Monaco are the twins.
