Alex is beauteous in these pics. The 1st pic if my favorite. She looks like little Char right there! Alex is Caro's baby child. I think Caro will resist letting this one grow up!

I admit I am pretty shocked by the engagement. I'm sure I should have seen it coming. I figured it would happen eventually. But it's still a surprise.

That's a much better balcony than the window they use on National Day

Caroline looks very happy for Albert

Caroline looks great with a tan, that is the best I have seen her look in a long time.

I'm trying to think carefully about this... a high end bar in a country famous for gambling and being a haven to the super-rich decorated with a Buddhist theme...yeah, I could imagine some devout Buddhists being offended by this. From what I understand the "Enlightened One" wasn't big on lavish living and excessive drinking.

I kind of wondered about that also. It does seem disrespectful. Usually Monaco seems very sensitive to those kinds of things. Maybe it is run by Buddists or at least okayed by them. I was in a restaurant in San Francisco that was run by Buddist monks.

Very much so. In the last one too.

The shot where she's linked arms with Albert and Caroline at the same time is terrific. Pictures like that make me feel like I can't help but love the Grimaldi's. Caroline's such a great mom and Alex clearly loves her uncle a lot.

Caroline is so elegant as usual. In one pic she reminds me of her mother!

I like seeing Alexandra here, she is really pretty and similar to her father. Caroline is glowing, being away from E-A seems good for her. Albert is gloomy, in some of pics he seems to force himself to smile. Weird for a man who just announced engagement.
Some pics say event was on 19th, but 23rd was the correct date for celebration. OK, I'am boring this those dates.

My thoughts exactly. How many would be insulted to see a "JC" bar that offer "lamb of G" martinis?
