Well, it is important to us.
Just a side note, as this post was being pieced together (days after the Monaco Grand Prix), it was announced (by the Palace, not rumored by some glorified trash heap media outlet) that Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene are expecting their first child (together). Yes, this means that Her Serene Highness was pregnant in these photos. Congratulations to the couple (and, we fully admit that we cannot wait to see Charlene’s maternity wardrobe; it is a safe assumption that it is going to be perfectly simple, classic, and all-around gorgeous)!
