I’m guessing that Dimitri prefers to be out of the media eye and wants the same for his son as Balthazar doesn’t appear to be there either.

Possibly the pandemic and the situation around the Princess have an effect on the mood ?

Today I saw that princess Charlene was absent. Why? And Dimitri Rassan (Charlotte's husband) was not there, too. Too pity!

He posted in his Instagram stories yesterday that he was camping. I don't know if he is set - I think he has a film in production at the moment. He has also made it quite clear he finds all the Monaco "hoopla" quite annoying.

Interesting. He doesn't seem to find the hoopla surrounding his annual summer cruises aboard Princess Caroline's yacht annoying enough to pass up.

Let's hope Charlotte doesn't ever begin to find accompanying him to Cannes and supporting him at his film premieres amid all the hoopla annoying.

And Balthazar is too young for National Day, but he is a Monagasque and a member of the extended Princely family. I hope when he is older Charlotte will bring him to National Day.

National Day Monaco: 2006 - 2021

How sweet to see the aunts taking care of the twins at the ceremony in the courtyard.

Could this balcony scene be the first time we see all of Carolines grandchildren (but Balthazar) in ine picture?

As sad as the news of Princess Charlene definitely hovering a cloud over everything, this was one of the best showings for National Day that Monaco has had in a few years! We even got Charlotte to join!

National Day Monaco: 2006 - 2021

I just realized P Caroline has only one granddaughter amongst all the boys…
Nice to see the whole family there today.

There wasn’t one man or boy, with the notable exception of Andrea youngest son in knee socks, who didn’t have his pants way too long and not properly tailored. Beatrices sons were shocking in their too long pants while she is tailored to the tenth degree.
The evening looks of Caroline and Charlotte were appalling

Well I'm guessing that if all of them wear them.like that they think that's the right way to wear them - or they all share the same tailor! :-)

To be fair their annual summer cruises on Pacha are not very long - since they married they seem to prefer Carole Bouquet's property as it's much more private.

I just remember some video a few years ago where he was really annoyed at being followed by photographers especially as his daughter and Raphaël were with them. He told them off because of the children being there.

I don‘t think he‘s too young in general, Pierre and Andrea brought their children as babies and toddlers to the celebration, see 2018 or 2019 for example, it’s simply a decision Charlotte has made.


In this video at around 13:50 there’s a report about the dinner for the diplomatic corps as part of the National Day Celebrations. Prince Albert and Princess Caroline attended together with the twins:

I just noticed that Gareth and Sean Wittstock and their families were present too at the celebrations.

Surely this is a sign that all is well between the Prince and Princess. It would be difficult for them to attend if their sister’s marriage was under pressure.

Exactly. Same for me. And there is a pic of the balcony where is an additional kid I don't know who is. By counting it should be 5 boys as Balthazar is not here. But I count 6 boys and I got lost.

I don’t know who the boy on the right is.
Caroline is holding Max and Beatrice is holding Stefano.
In the front row from left to right it’s
Raphaël, Sasha, India and Francesco.

Andrea’s children all have the same faces allthough I can’t say they look either like Andrea or Tatiana.

In the evening there was a drone light show.

National Day Monaco: 2006 - 2021

I could be wrong but I believe the boy on the far right is Melchior, the grandson of the late Elizabeth-Ann de Massy.

I believe this is the same boy attending the funeral of his grandmother last year:

I also think it is Melchior, he also attended the annual Picnic a couple of times, here in 2019.


The Palace has also shared a gallery of yesterday including two shots inside the Palace:
