Those are lovely and refreshing pics! I'm glad that Albert attends engagements with his relatives more often now! Still, it is a pity that Charlene was nowhere to be seen this time too!

As long as he has such a lovely support and company at an official event (and therefore also more media coverage for a certain cause), I don't care ;)

It's just that the event really sounded like a cause fit for Charlene, if you know what I mean. It would have been even more special had she been there...:flowers:

No, it was perfectly lovely and well represented. It just seems to fall under Charlene's area of interest, and honestly, I have no clue what she is doing with her time.

Board members of the Princess Grace Foundation USA presented a cheque Prince Albert and Princess Caroline to "support the artistic endeavors of the Fondation Princesse Grace de Monaco" during a Yacht Club brunch on March 20.

Lovely Princess Alexandra was present as well and posed for some nice photos:

Ah, Princess Alexandra is like a budding flower in bloom, she reminds me of a young Princess Diana in that way (with the same peaches & cream complexion). :sun:

Brava to Princess Caroline on *all* her children ~ bright, well-mannered, polite, respectful, intelligent, humble, articulate, responsible, duty above all. And not to forget blessed with good genes as well. :D

Also holding my breath. Since the De Massy's are very involved I assume that they have attended. But no pics that I know of. With Novak D out I'll be rooting for Roger F. I believe Djokovic, Raonic and Berdych all reside in Monaco.

Thanks, Iceflower. They both look very smart.

With last years finalists, Djokovic and Berdych, both eliminated it makes for a very interesting tournament this year. Will it be Federer and Nadal or maybe Wawrinka in the final on Sunday?

Hoping to see the Princely couple attend on Sunday...

Thanks Iceflower. P Albert really seemed thrilled to have his wife with him.Some lovely moments of PDA's between the couple: loving looks, subtle hand holding, posing arm in arm and the kiss on her temple.

I hope this signals the return of P Charlene to all the usual events we are used to.

The De Massy's were present too. Anyone knows who the gentleman was seated to the left of Melanie? Could it be a boyfriend maybe? Louis Ducruet and girlfriend Marie also attended. There are pics, but I'm unable to post links from my iPad.

Interesting that a junior Prince, and not his elder brother the Duke of Galliera, organized an event with such an impressive guestlist. It look like the former King of Spain came alone, the former King of Bulgaria came alone, the Prince of Monaco came alone, so Charlène was not the only absentee on this private diner. Nice to see the Duke and Duchess of Vendôme mingling with fellow royals.

Well, strictly speaking, if Caroline was there then Albert didn't go alone.

Duc_et_Pair 05-07-2016 06:10 PM

The attendance of the Princess of Hannover seem obvious. She fits seamlessly in the highborn congregation ánd she has known Prince Alvaro her whole life long. His mother was a niece to Queen Paola of the Belgians. His daughter is a godchild of King Juan Carlos. He has lived all his life in Monte-Carlo (the Grimaldis) and in Sanlucár de Barrameda (the Bulgarians), is related to the Comte de Paris and thd Duc de Vendôme. I would say: Caroline's perfect habitat... Not so for a girl from Bulawayo. We can not blame Charlène. Her new life in the ostentatively arch-wealthy bubble of Monte-Carlo could not be more different than her normal life in a swimming-pool.

Who blamed Charlene? Not me - I merely pointed out that Albert didn't attend alone... However, (no blame, just observation) she's lived in Monaco for long enough now to have got used to - if not comfortable with - the "bubble".

Charlène is not a mermaid, she has spent more of her life on dry land than in a swimming pool and I'm sure people from Bulawayo (or Benoni, for that matter) are actually capable of a bit more than you appear to give them credit for.

This must be one of the most condescending sentences I have ever read on this board...

Duc_et_Pair 05-08-2016 02:52 AM

Try to replace oneself in a girl from Bulawayo with a great talent for sports in general and swimming in particular. Suddenly she finds herself in another country, in another continent, in another hemisphere even. And then not with an European dude in a suburb somewhere, no: with a way older man, a Prince even, living in a palais princier on a rock. And when she looks around she sees no mums bicycling their child to school, she sees a congestion of Rovers, Teslas, Audis in front of the schoolgates. When she looks into Main Street, she does not see Ibrahim's 24h Döner, she sees Baume & Mercier, she sees Chanel. The charming pittoresque fishing boats have been replaced by mega-yachts from Russian oligarchs and Arab sheikhs. Little is needed to get a totally deformed world view and come to the core essence of what is life about: to feel happiness in small things, in a drawing made by Jacques, in seeing Gabriella cuddling the dog. Then having a reception with a Prince so-and-so, in the attendance of royals from here and from there, in a posh etablissement in an already über-posh Monte-Carlo with the omnipresent media prying her can be só awful that she prefers to stay with the twins.

Most probably she was right as Charlène looks like someone with both feet on the ground, with a sound mind and a clear view on the world. For Albert and Caroline this IS their life. They know no better than seeing Lamborghinis and Maseratis driving through the street. The marble cour of the palais princier with the stunning frescoes was their playground and have kid parties on mega yachts in the marina of Monte-Carlo, pffff... what else is new? We see that with the Santo Domingos and the Borromeos this extraordinary lifestyle is extended by marrying partners also used to this crazy world.

With saying that Charlotte will have felt in her natural habitat, chatting with old pal and neighbourhood boy Alvaro d'Orléans, laughing with Juan Carlos de Borbón and nipping from a Moët & Pommery Rosé with a splendid vue de mer is nothing special at all. My feeling says that Charlène loathes the superficial bronze-tanned monegasque bubble and prefers to live with Albert and the twins in a wooden lodge, somewhere near the Kruger Park above conversing with botox-faced Amerikanskis with half the Van Cleef & Arpels display around their neck. Of course: what counts for Charlène counts for Mette-Marit and Letizia as well, but at least the last two do not live in a sort of über-posh Club Med all year long.

A bit patronising, really. Charlene's not stupid, she held her own at various big functions in the past so I'm sure she could have managed if need be.

By the way, I have no problem with her not attending, it was a private dinner with people she probably doesn't know. But I do think you set your expectations of her rather low - just because she comes from Bulawayo... and swims.

She didn't "suddenly" find herself in this environment, she spent five years as Albert's companion, travelling with him or accompanying him on many occasions, she was engaged for a year and has been married to him for several years. Her priorities may have changed since she's had children but she's not some untutored ingenue fresh out of the backwoods.

As for conversing with Botoxed faced "Americanskis" - well, at least it's the right language for her and the rules of this board mean I can't possibly comment the way I want to about the other...

And yet again, no Charlene at one of the primary religious events in the Principality - those events that are very important to the Monaco citizens.

But she had time to pull out rugby countries like a D-list game show hostess.

Thank goodness Albert and Caroline know what's needed.

Umbelievable!!! Charlene took another day off....she is too busy so far!

HereditaryPrincess 05-28-2016 12:32 PM

I'm a bit disappointed that Charlene didn't attend, as I've gotten the impression that since she's been married into the family, she has become more religious. Therefore I would've thought that it would be important for her to attend. Perhaps she was ill or wanted to stay at home with the twins, but it does seem a little strange that she was absent today.

Charlene said she's a full time mother for the time being except for a few appearances that she has to do. I'm guessing this is not one of them as Caroline could do the job.

Elly C 05-28-2016 05:29 PM

I am not sure what to make of the Monaco events that Charlene doesn't attend. I think having missed this religious occasion if she appears at both the grand prix and the grand prix ball, there will inevitably be some comment about her choice of appearances. There may be a perfectly amicable agreement between the royal couple about how often Charlene is required to "be on duty", but I think it is quite reasonable for people to question these choices.

Nice pics, Jacques is grown quite a bit since the last pics i saw (i don't follow all pics), next year he'll be running around on his own ;)
And imo P.Charlene seems much more enjoying these offivial events when her kids are around, so that's a bonus too ;)

HereditaryPrincess 09-10-2016 06:02 PM

The picnic looks like it is a nice event, and little Jacques is super cute. He seemed to be rather curious too! I love his little red shirt. I wonder why Gabriella wasn't there.

titiromi 09-10-2016 06:17 PM

Jacques is super handsome ♡, he is blessed with those Grimaldi-wittstock genes, I love little boy's with long hair, they look very Prince Charming IMO. Charlene's dress is beautiful and Albert looks happy. It s a pity we didn t get to see the little princess.

And I will add what a joy to follow this little family :flowers: Happy times in Monaco

Prince Albert & Princess Charlene Current Events - Part 4: March 2015 -
 
P Jacques has grown from a baby into a very cute little boy! Beautiful blond hair and blue eyes. I love his steady and intense gaze. And yes, we missed his little sister. I'm sure we will know in due course why she was not present.

Jacques is very cute, Gabriella arrived with her parents, she gave the hand to her mother but when she saw all these people around her, she cried so much that she had to return to the palace with her nanny.

Lee-Z 09-11-2016 03:16 AM

:previous: ah yes, i can imagine such a large crowd can we overwhelming for a small child, we'll probably see her next year :flowers:

melina premiere 09-11-2016 03:21 AM

We will see her at the national fest.at the balcony

Daunting to say the least, I can imagine the noise of the camera shutters alone would be enough for anyone, especially a baby girl. She will grow into it, but the Prince and Princess took the sensible step and took her out of the situation.
Jac appears a bit more laid back; not sure what is going on but not too worried either! Mum and Dad are on either side after all.

Duc_et_Pair 09-11-2016 03:51 AM

Prince Jacques is the spitting image of his father at the same age. Great pictures of a great event.

Marty91charmed 09-11-2016 05:56 AM

Jacques is the spitting image of Charlene! She looked exactly like that at that age! Pity there was not Gabriella.

melina premiere 09-11-2016 06:34 AM

Jacques is not the spitting image of Charlene, he looks like his grandfather Prince Rainier and also his cousin Sasha, he has only the blond hair and the blues eyes of Charlene

Florestane 09-11-2016 06:59 AM

I think Jacques is a Wittstock in his looks. I see a passing resemblance to Sasha only because he has longer blonde curly hair and chubby cheeks. I have to admit I can see nothing similar to Prince Rainier or indeed to Albert as babies. I think Gabriella looks more like her father at the moment.

Time will tell - people change so much between childhood and adulthood. Who would have thought baby Pierre was going to be such a double for his father? And Andrea that everyone said was the spitting image of his father, actually isn't.

melina premiere 09-11-2016 07:26 AM

I think everybody has its opinion to whom Prince hereditary is looking like,I don' t see anything of the family of Wittstock apart the eyes and the blond hair, Jacques has the fronthead of Prince Rainier and his skin , everybody in the french forums and specially the people of Monaco are saying he is looking to P Rainier
But no matter to he is looking like to, it is a very cute boy. with very beautiful eyes.

Marty91charmed 09-11-2016 07:29 AM

Well, I still think that it is Princess Gabriella who looks a lot like Prince Albert. Imo Prince Jacques is a cute little boy who resembles his mom. And I am still more convinced after having seen pics of Charlene as a baby.

But yes , it doesn't matter. Every person sees different similarities in children, so way insisting that all should agree?

Jacques seems a curious toddler and looked very comfortable with the crowds.

titiromi 09-11-2016 08:26 AM

I think Sasha looks like his mother not like prince Jacques apart from the blonde curly hair.

Well, the eyes and the hair is not really "not anything" is it :lol:

I agree he's a mixture with the Grimaldi forehead and the Wittstock eyes, and we'll see when he gets older how the family resemblence will develop

(for reference P.Charlene's babyphoto https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2015/...1660669348.jpg )

melina premiere 09-11-2016 11:38 AM

A child can change, baby, he may look like his mother and adult,he may change and looking like his his father or an uncle, it is the genetic law
I find now that Princess Amalia is looking like her grandmother Princess Beatrix and I found that she looked like when she was younger to her mother Queen Maxima

Charlene at 3 years old



On the photo in the pool Gabriella is more Kelly than Jacques.

A person who was present to see the princely family took the photo of the entire family,
Prince Albert, with Jacques and Gabriella in the arms of her mother but Gabriella began to cry because she was afraid, her mother walked on the pavement a long time to console her even her aunt Caroline tried to condole her, no sucess, she returned to the palace

here are the photos

I can't see the photos - the links just take me to my general Facebook not the specific photos - any suggestions?

HereditaryPrincess 09-11-2016 05:09 PM

I think both Jacques and Gabriella look like a mixture of their parents, because to me, in the photo of Charlene as a baby, she looks more like Gabriella; but in the photo of her as a three year old, she looks more like Jacques. In the baby photo I think she looks like Gabriella around the eyes, and also her smile is more like her daughter's. In the photo where Charlene is a little older, again I think she looks like Jacques around the eyes.

As other posters have pointed out, babies and young children change all the time in regards to who they look like - and it also depends on the angle the photo was taken at, the lighting and other aspects of the photo too in some cases. Due to this, different people will view resemblences in a different way and that's what makes this discussion interesting!

I can't see them either. I don't have Facebook (I know, I know :biggrin:) so with me it just shows a message stating that the photos can't be shown and that I have to log in to see them. I would love to have a look at them!

melina premiere 09-11-2016 05:20 PM

It is a privat page about the princely family on facebook,
I did not think that it was privat and we cannot publish the photos who are published on this page,
It is a pity, Little Gabriella was very beautiful with a blue dress and a nice hairdo

the photos were taken by a monegash people and they are published on the privat page of FB

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1736...24244/?fref=ts

I am trying to publish them by an another way

Oh, thank you for letting us know. Do you have the photos from another source? Don't worry if not, but I'd be interested.

rominet09 09-11-2016 06:22 PM

Pity we can't see the pix.... I would have loved to see Gabriella.... they change so much at their age.

COUNTESS 09-11-2016 07:37 PM

He looks like his mother. Certainly, has her coloring. But then, again, he looks like a Kelly. He is more Kelly and Wittstock, than Grimaldi.

CyrilVladisla 09-11-2016 10:55 PM

Prince Jacques looks quite the gentleman in bright red. He walks very well holding Mother's hand.

cdm 09-12-2016 02:15 PM

Does anyone know the history behind this pic nic?

polyesco 09-12-2016 07:06 PM

very cute to take Jacques, although I would have I like to see him in his national outfit like last year
https://us.hellomagazine.com/imagenes...rlene-3--a.jpg

melina premiere 09-13-2016 04:13 AM

Jacques were the colors of Monaco this year, red teeshirts and white pants, her sister who came but did not stay wore a nice blue dress, Perhaps we will see them wearing the national outfit next national fest

two trees were planted in the parc Antoinette to celebrat the birth of Jacques and Gabriella and they were blessed by Mgr Barsi, very nice

https://www.facebook.com/palaismonac...type=3&theater

There are some photos of Gabriella with her parents and brother arrriving at the pic nic and a photo of Charlene trying to confort her daughter , walking on the pavement. I saw other photos on an other pages but the page was privat.
