On reading more about it I've realised the Palace has a great many beautiful State rooms. We so often see the Salon de glace that it's easy to forget about the rest. As well as the blue drawing room there is a red one too (and I don't mean the Throne Room) but the family don't seem to use it on formal occasions. The Duke of York bedroom is also impressive but not often photographed.

Yes there are several beautiful State Rooms. They are open during the year when they are not used and i once visited it.

Though State visits are very rare I often wondered if there's a banquet room at the Palace.

In a docu I have seen, there was no banquet but a large dining room, which was used to feed state guests - with everything you would expect: a "master of cermony", stewards, a big kitchen to cook for the guests, very old table clothes with woven in coat of arms etc.

Thank you, @Blog Real, for this wonderful little video.

Monaco is such a beautiful location. And all the beige-colored and ochre houses, including the palace, a nice place!

Albeit I am asking myself, if they chose these colors there because of the vicinity of the sea - because the humidity would lead to mico-organisms and those would make white colored buildings looking dirty very fast. But honestly, I have no idea and Monaco looks simply cool, anyway!

The work done looks fantastic and I love the outdoor corridor ceilings and walls.
