Random Royaling – Monaco’s National Day 2021

Note: This year’s National Day in Monaco has been overshadowed by the news that Princess Charlene is seeking treatment for some undisclosed issues. If you want to read Prince Albert’s statement, there is a link in the featured comment on Bits. The Princess is in Europe at a treatment center. We aren’t going to discuss or speculate on the nature of her treatment, where she is, the duration of her absence, or the family’s response, either in our posts or comments. I am positive Baguettes are wishing her well, as are the Hofdames. Her children sent a touching message to their mother during the celebrations, and we have included that in the post.


Prince Albert was supported by his siblings, Princesses Caroline and Stephanie, during today’s National Day celebrations in Monaco. The twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, also made their appearance. The entire celebration was lower-key and somber, due to the announcement about Princess Charlene and the continuing situation surrounding the pandemic.

Clothing rollcall (Hat Tip to UFONomore, check out their full coverage here). It was the typical Chanel/Dior parade:

  • Princess Gabriella: Brunello Cucinelli coat, Tartine & Chocolat, Monnalisa beret and pink ballet flats

The children sent a lovely message to Princess Charlene.

All the children from the extended family got some balcony time, which must be exciting for them! It’s nice that Auntie Beatrice wore a hat that can cover all of them from the sun ; ).

In my book, best dressed goes to little Princess Gabriella and her netted hat!

She has some stiff competition from her elegant cousins, though.

Evening Gala

Some of the family – sans littles – showed up in support at the National Day Gala. Rather surprisingly, Tatiana Casiraghi is my favorite here.
