I really hope to Charlene there again this year as it is while she we have seen her and Albert at an official function

The Rose Ball and Red Cross ball arent quite the same as in the days of the late Princess Grace as she really did bring that extra bit of glamour that is really lacking

Prince Albert and Princess Caroline are very heavily involved with the picking of entertainment (as was their Mother before them) and so they must have at least heard of them. I've even seen quotes in interviews of performers that say that the Prince (or Princess) called the performer directly to ask them to perform.

It's also not unknown for either of them to appear at the venue to make sure things are being decorated correctly the day before.

The Fratelli's are one of my favorite bands! Their most famous song here in America would probably be Chelsea Dagger.

Poor Ernst, I hope he gets well soon. I think Caroline will attend because she's Monaco's First Lady and the Ball's organizer, but without a doubt I'm sure she'll want to be by Ernst's side.

I wonder if the Ball will begin an hour later due to the Lights Off movement tonight around the world.

There is no minimum age to attend the Ball, I remember reading that in 2007's Red Cross Ball there were kids running around the Sporting Club! And also Caroline attended her first Ball when she was 16, so did Albert.

It's quite interesting to see that the musical choices for this year are not big names like those from all of the other Balls. Definetly a great opportunity for all of these new artists and a great way to bring the young generation to the Ball.

I am sorry to hear about Prince Ernst. I hope gets well soon. I can understand that Prince Ernst won't attend at the Rose Ball. At least, I hope Princess Caroline will attend tonight.

I am excited and can't wait to see the pics!

Oh, no, I am sorry for EA accident. He and Caroline make nice couple during events like Rose Ball. I only hope that the rest of family will appear like always.

Getty already has images of the Sporting Club's decor. It says Prince Albert and Charlene will attend.

Charlotte looks stunning, too bad she wore black again! Princess Caroline seems to have made up from last year, yet black again....her handbag is original a motorcycle helmet with some roses. Beatrice Borromeo is there, as well as Melanie and Julliet Maillot.

Wow Charlotte looks gorgeous, and Pierre is handsome as ever. All 3 C's are wearing so-so gowns imo. Can't wait to see more pictures, especially of them dancing.

Yes, Alex Dellal, he is walking behind the group in some photos. It seems Andrea and Tatiana skipped the Ball this year again. Too bad Stephanie didn't attend, I thought she would due to the theme.

You can see Alex Dellal in the photo where they focus on Charlotte's dress, she's walking over the Route 66 sign. Andrea Sabrier is also there.

Just checking ... I did not see Antoinette either (or her daughter and Melanie for that matter). Did they also not attend?

Melanie is there, I suspect Elizabeth Ann is there too, she never misses it. I really doubt Princess Antoinette is there due to her age, she's 88 I believe.

I agree with Pyschoduck, all three ladies look stunning hair and makeup wise. It seems they read our comments from last year lol Princess Caroline looks so young and Charlotte looks a lot like her mom when she was moreless her age.
