  4. Lovely family. I am struck by the transformation in Albert. He looks 10 years younger since he married Charlene and had children. Amazing what happiness can do. Beautiful little dress on Gabriella.

  8. La petite Gabriella n'est pas très jolie... Le prince Jacques, en revanche, a un visage doux et rêveur... Un adorable petit garçon !

    1. She looks very much like her father. All kids are cute in their own way. I think she looks sweet with a bit of mischief in her expression.

    2. @Victoire - Moi je ne serai plus de ce monde dans 15 ou 16 ans, quand elle sera probablement une beaute. Si vous l'etes encore, peut-etre devrez-vous vous mordre la langue! Gabriella est plus expressive que son frere. On n'est pas necessairement beau/belle parce qu'on est prince/princesse.

    3. @Heather : You're probably right : all kids are cute, in their own way... A merry Christmas to you !

      @Lizzie : Je serais ravie que cette petite princesse devienne, comme vous le dites, "une beauté". Et j'aurais adoré qu'elle ressemble à sa grand-mère paternelle ! Mais les traits à venir sont déjà là, assez banals et plutôt grossiers (lèvres fines, nez fort)... Je serais étonnée qu'elle ne cède pas à l'appel de la chirurgie, comme Maman ! Ceci dit, c'est vrai qu'elle est très expressive. Très belles fêtes de Noël !

    4. Aucun(e) des petits-enfants de Grace ne lui ressemble.

    5. @Lizzie : Hélas... Mais peut-être, qui sait, à la génération suivante... ? Ma mère est le portrait craché de son arrière-arrière-grand-père !

  9. I think the little girl looks like her father's side of the family and the little boy looks just like Charlene's brother, he definitley favors her side of the family.

    1. It certainly is a great dress - a classic look from the front and then the open back gives it an extra bit of edge.

  13. Finally...the children are dressed very nicely (not in black, or not wearing uggs)... beloved Princess Grace in the background. Good job! Beautiful pictures.

    1. really!! what are you trying to imply that they should wear couture all the time, when out taking a walk with the parents, or meeting, other kids gosh!!!

    2. Haven't said anything about "couture". Just google for the photos of last Christmas...all the family was in black.
