I agree with you about Caroline and Ernst. I only want to add that they do look very much contented in all situations, to me at least. I think they have reached the point in a successful marriage where there is not always an apparent "spark" because life for them has reached an even keel of contentedness. They enjoy their life together, so it seems to me, and therefore don't need any extra "flare", for lack of a better expression. That kind of purity is what people dream of.

Thanks tbhrc! I'm sure this Ball will a success. Has it been said who will be performing that night? I can imagine Alaska will perform since she's in the poster. There are so many great musical options for that night!

Can't help but think they've chosen a seemingly fitting theme. Though of course inadvertently and not at all in the way my mind is wandering.

You think there is to be an announcement made?! I'd be pleasently surprised if it was for Andrea and Tatiana - that is a true love match.....I'll be suspicious if it's an announcement for Charlene and Prince Albert...he'd be settling.........time will tell. As I've said, we (in the States) usually only hear about the British Royals, so if there is "buzz" about Andrea and Tatiana taking the plunge, it's not, yet, come up here.....

I don't think they'll make any announcement, as it would divert the attention from the Ball's theme, performers, and special guests.

If an announcement would be made it would be made by the Palace and I'm sure there would be a special engagement party afterwards along with pictures.

Is the Rose Ball a charitable event - done to raise money for some charity, or is it more a social gathering? If it's a charitable event, I agree w/Monaco70s comments that the Ball would be an inappropriate venue to announce an engagement.

It's a charitable event so no announcement. Not to mention that it's being reported that Albert issued a statement on his most recent trip that he has no plans to marry Charlene and that they have fun together. Can someone can find that interview. It apparently appeared on German TV.

The official press release in english:

Bal de la Rose Movida
Salle des Etoiles - Sporting Monte-Carlo
Saturday March 29th, 2008

Under the Presidency of His Serene Highness the Sovereign Prince Albert II and Her Royal Highness the Princess of Hanover, in aid of the Fondation Princesse Grace. This year, Her Royal Highness the Princess of Hanover, President of the Fondation, has chosen the “Movida” theme.

Spain will be spotlighted and, in particular, the extraordinary chapter in its history which saw ethics and arts explode in an extraordinary renaissance. “Movida” is an artistic movement in Spain, dating from the 1980s, which swept away several decades of oppression.

Fiery, exuberant, creative... the young of Spain really know how to let off steam. Culture is getting carried away in an iconoclast and brightly coloured renaissance movimiento: the “Movida Madrileña”. A newly found freedom of expression sweeps away all the taboos and changes social behaviour: everyone is wearing trendy clothes, going out, having fun, wearing disguises, dancing, loving and living! Meeting places flourish, nightlife sparkles in a hedonism which is at times excessive. Everywhere, young creators find ways of expressing themselves. Their provocative and unfettered creations shake up the boundaries between culture for the masses and elitist culture.

The Movida is associated closely with several important personalities, innovative artists and leaders in the great cultural shake-up. “King” Pedro Almodóvar capsulates single-handedly this strong innovative movement. He is the genius creator of films about moral liberation, dealing with themes such as homosexuality, transsexualism, drugs and life in the artistic milieu. His films are shown all over the world and his favourite actresses are sailing along in the wake of his glory: Victoria Abril, Carmen Maura, Rossy de Palma and Penelope Cruz.

Perched on high platform shoes, his “Queen” Fabio McNamara is the perfect incarnation of Madrid’s party animals of the 1980s. Another hugely iconic figure of this over-excited Spain is Olvido Gara, better known as Alaska. Considered as the “muse of the Movida”, the punk rocker made a huge impact on modern music in Spain, with bands including Kaka de Luxe, Los Pegamoides and Dinarama.

A bevy of other artistes symbolise this fantastic effervescence: Mecano, Radio Futura, Nacha Pop and Tino Casal in the world of music, filmmakers such as Eloy de la Iglesia and Fernando Trueba with his movie “Ópera prima”. And, of course, novelist and poet Manuel Vázquez Montalbán, creator of Detective Pepe Carvalho, cartoonists Javier Mariscal and Ceseepe, painters Juan Carrero and Enrique Naya, known as the “Costus Brothers”, photographers Miguel Trillo and Ouka Lele, who has become one of Spain’s most internationally renowned contemporary artistes.
The tribute to Pedro Almodóvar will involve several artistes who knew him and who represent Spain from the 1980s to today.

It is the ambience of today’s Spain - joyous, impassioned and uplifted - that will bewitch the stage on the famous Monegasque peninsula on 29th March 2008. It promises to be an evening of gaiety, rhythm and emotion.
For one hundred and fifty years, Monte-Carlo S.B.M. has created unique moments by combining know-how and the culture of excellence. The legendary Monegasque resort offers its chic and cosmopolitan clients a perfect alchemy between first-rate talents and the soul of remarkable venues.

Bal de la Rose Movida

I hear every year at the coming of every event that there´s going to be an announcement, and it never happens. If they want to make announcements they don´t need to wait until a party.
Btw, la Movida sounds like a lot of fun, salsa, merengue, it would be great!
