Ready for a black, white and gray parade? Have you been missing gloves? Interested in the velvet headband as a hat? The Monacos are here for you. All joking aside, this is an amazing display of family unity in the face of crisis. I bow down.
Yesterday, Monaco celebrated National Day 2020. Even though the general celebrations were smaller due to pandemic restrictions, a good contingent of the Princely family attended the Te Deum service at the Monaco Cathedral and the official ceremony in the courtyard.
Thanks to the Royal Couturier, we have almost a complete rundown on HSH’s ensemble. Charlene is wearing a bespoke coat by Terrence Bray, some unusual sheer gloves by Cornelia James, a Dior chapeau, and an Akris clutch. Note the lower heel, which is suddenly becoming very popular among the royal ladies – this pair is by Jimmy Choo.
In the junior division, Gabriella is in navy coat and velvet bows by Jacadi, and Jacques is quite dapper in his Carabiniers uniform. H/T to Heaven and her crew for that identification, and you might want to pop over to her blog to see lots of great photos, too.
Also in the junior division, Francesco Casiraghi and Stefano Casiraghi (Beatrice and Pierre’s children) are getting big aren’t they? Love their coats, but I don’t have any designer information that digs that deep.
Princess Caroline looks chicer than any grandmother I know in Chanel. I am fascinated that velvet headbands seemed to have moved from Britain to Monaco. Caroline’s band is possibly by Jennifer Behr (H/T to Polka Popp). More glove action here, which I think I would like better if they were a bit more sleekly fitted.
Beatrice Casiraghi also wore a velvet band – no identification on the designer.
Like her mother-in-law, Tatiana Casiraghi wore a Jennifer Behr headband, and it also happens to be my favorite of the three.
I like Tatiana’s grey tweed ensemble, which is tentatively identified as Prada. Beatrice Casiraghi is wearing Dior. Princess Alexandra is also wearing a Dior coat. Unfortunately we don’t have access to close-up photos (go here to see a better view), but I like the general 1940s silhouette.
