Monaco Celebration Day!


Morning!   Take a look at the stylish Monaco family!
High fashion with a touch of nostalgia !
"National day" is typically celebrated with fireworks over the harbor in the evening
and mass  in the St Nicholas Cathedral the next morning.
The people of Monaco may celebrate by waving the Monegasque flag.
The former Olympic swimmer, who married Prince Albert in 2011 after meeting him 11 years earlier at a swim meet in Monaco. was wearing all black except for her white hat.
Princess Charlene  has adorable twins who seem to be growing up so quickly!

I have a fascination for Monaco ever since I saw Princess Grace make her way
on a ship to Marry Prince Rainier!
Her family has certainly blossomed!

The date of the National Day is traditionally determined by the reigning Prince and is held annually with fireworks and a mass service.
