She could have dressed better, not like she´s at home. She coudn´t care less about these events, so disrespectful. She could be a little grateful with the country that pays for her and her family standard of living.

Princess flipflop again. A long skirt, sleeveless underweartype top and a winterscarf....and what's that string across her chest? Is she trying to give Albert a hint that she wants an order for National Holiday? Or is she trying to set a trend for a new way to wear a necklace? Ambert looks pregnant.
Here is a group pic and an article.rashy seems to be the worst dressed...not that that is any news. The de Massys seem to be coming out full force now these days. Though her friend Donatella seems to be missing in action....Considering she is one of the two friends trashy has in MC.....
I don't know if it's the pendulum swing but if Albert has sidelined his sisters, doesn't that remind anyone of Rainier sidelining his sister who's now present beside Albert!?! Weird. Personally, I think Stephanie and Caroline have done interesting things with their lives outside the family in recent past. It may actually be freeing to be unburdened of having to handle an erratic brother. If Albert now feels he can do without them, he should at least show how their support has been important to him in his life. Or life will repeat itself and the shunned ones will return in force beside the next heir. And that would be a pity to not address their problems as a family but that's life. I think when Albert ends up alone again and misunderstood, he'll have lost his best allies.
Albert should just think about what he is doing here. Or is being done to. Yes Melanie and her mom were always present. So nothing wrong with that or unusual about it. Also I think that Caro and Elizabeth ann are close, so she might be part of her eyes and ears on the ground. The others though that have been filling in the past red cross and now at the picnic, were not present before. At least not noticeably. IMO it is a typical way of a narcissist alienating their victim from those closest. If Albert is isolated, he will more likely keep trashy on payroll. On the other hand if they stayed close, he would never feel the need to change his situation, so Caro and STeph out of the way may actually serve a good purpose eventually. Besides Caro has always made it clear that her priority is with her children. So I don't think she would engage in a futile battle. She knows how to make her point with the Monegasques. Her absence speaks louder then words. Should she move away again, then people will know what to make of it too.
It's very sort of background extras and no supporting actors in relation to the principal(s) IMO. Other than that, I'm not enough of an absolutist to declare anything. It's very narcissistic, for sure - and not healthy,
I am sure that trashy thinks as long as Caro is there, she will not be the first lady. She doesn't sem to get that the Monegasques will always have a special place for Steph and Caro. They saw them grow up and grow old with kids of their own. that is pretty much a first in MC. Before, Rainier and Antoinette were raised mostly outside of MC. They didn't even go to school there. They had no childhood friends there. MC princes were absent princes. The Monegasques were never particularly attached to them until Rainier changed that. With the help of Grace and the way they lived their family life more or less among their sujects. Caro, since she has moved back to MC is very visible. Steph is visible in her daily routine. Trashy isn't. She doesn't even take her dog for a walk...

It's hard to be visible if you're not there to be visible. barbie beige is probably very visible somewhere not Monaco. La Turbie, South Africa, California, anywhere but Monaco. She really doesn't seem to like the place. While there were sightings of her in Monaco before the engagement, supported with photographical evidence, she seems to avoid the place like the plague now that she has the rings. I think even Albert I was more around than barbie (but only just) and that Albert was pretty absent from what I know.
<sings> Sailing, sailing across the sea sailing, sailing, the only place to be... ;D (be glad there is no sound... )
They look like the same style pants that she wore for her wedding that Karl did. I think they were inappropriate for both ocassions, but Charlene doesn't ever dress for the ocassion-she dresses to attract attention to herself...even she knows no one will pay attention to her othersize--that is as much effort that she is willing to put into it...odd outfits. Charlene does not have her own style so she chases whatever fad that is thrown out there for the season. I mean really, PANTS for a Royal wedding--civil or not, anyway it looks like she has them in all colors? They are pleated like the ones she wore at the civil ceremony. Whatever they are they seem kind of dumb for a picnic, considering she has worn sundresses at times she shoud be dressed in something more like a suit. If you notice she dresses to NOT blend in with anyone ever....she always has to fight for attention somehow and she often does it i in her dress--she is way to lazy to attract attention in any other way.
