Monaco National Day was November 19 and Prince Albert and Princess Charlene brought out their twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, to celebrate the day. Their grumpy faces are adorable.
National Day in Monaco was formerly known as the Feast of the Sovereign and was held on November 19 to mark the anniversary of Prince Rainier III‘s (1923-2005) accession to the throne ceremony which took place on November 19, 1949. Albert chose to keep Nation Day on November 19 in honor of his father.
Charlene wore a plum Akris dress which I don’t really care for and a matching hat with netting.
Other members of the Monaco royal family who came out include:
Princess Stephanie (far L in red) and Princess Caroline (second R in dust-ruffled Chanel).
Beatrice Borromeo (who married Pierre in July & August), Pierre Casiraghi (our July Hot Guy), and Charlotte Casiraghi (who recently dumped her son’s father for an Italian filmmaker).
Beatrice wore some nice morganite and diamond earrings from Köchert that cost €13,500.
Charlene stepped out at the Monaco Red Cross headquarters on November 17 to distribute parcels to monegasque citizens. She, and Albert, also observed a minute of silence on November 16 to pay tribute to victims of the Paris attacks.
Charlene debuted a new pixie cut which she promptly covered on National Day. I wonder if she likes her hair cut or thinks it was a mistake. She cut bangs last January and then promptly hid them away. And now she’s cut a pixie cut and promptly hid it away. Maybe she should stop taking haircut risks.
BTW, hand holding.
