Reservations are now open at our booking desk. Your final reservation will be recorded after payment in advance for the evening. We will not take into account reservations not pre-paid by June 30. The remaining places will then be made available to people on the waiting list. People reserving a room at the Hôtel Saint-Louis will be charged by the establishment at the time of reservation. We advise them to reserve their room first because the hotel only has 22 rooms (4 family rooms with 3 beds and 18 rooms for 2 people).
Before shopping for the ball, we advise you to consult the dress code made available on this site. We have a habit of creating a group on Facebook so that the guests can exchange their tips. Preparations are part of the party, take the time and have fun making them. The Prince's Chamberlain, Duke Olivier de Constance usually makes himself available throughout this period. You can ask him all your questions.
As soon as you arrive, you must show your entry card to the Captain of the Guard who will introduce you to the princely couple and all the guests. A welcome drink and petit fours are served and a photo is taken for each guest with the Prince and Princess after greeting you. This is the time when no one would want to miss their entrance.
MEAL & DRINKS
When the time for the banquet has come, the guests return to their tables. Each being placed according to his affinities and his language as the first criteria. A glass of rosé Champagne from the princely cuvée will be served to you for the first toast. This is Champagne from the Domaine de Nuisement in Aube, which is also served in the French Senate and during the Cannes Film Festival. For the meal, the wines of the princely cuvée accompany the gourmet meal of Chef Matthieu Klein. The meal is always prepared with local and seasonal products, thus responding to the ethics of the Principality. You will be able to share your specific dietary requirements when making your reservation. The meal includes a starter, a main course and a dessert, the glass of Champagne and the wines of the princely cuvée. It is during the meal, before the dessert service, that the Prince presents the medals of the Grand Princely Order of the Flamingo to deserving citizens.
The Gala evening always continues with the ball. The latter begins with a waltz opened by the princely couple. If you're not good dancers, don't worry, neither are they. The ball continues with more contemporary rhythms after a series of ballroom dances. In the patio of the Palace, many prefer to take advantage of the coolness to chat, take photos and continue the party at their own pace. Further entertainment is under study.
