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 booking a room at the Hôtel Saint-Louis* (*The Princely residence) 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 your purchases for the ball, we advise you to consult the dress code made available on this site. We have the custom of creating a group on Facebook so that guests can exchange their good deals. The preparations are part of the party, take the time and enjoy doing them. The Prince's Chamberlain, Duke Olivier of Constance, has the habit of making himself available throughout this period. You can ask him all your questions. We advise you to order your outfits as soon as possible due to delivery times from certain online suppliers.
As soon as you arrive, you will have to show your entry card to the Captain of the Guard who will introduce you in front of 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.
When the time for the banquet has come, the guests return to their tables. Each being placed according to their affinities and their language as primary criteria. A glass of rosé Champagne from the princely vintage will be served to you for the first toast. This is Champagne from Domaine de Nuisement in Aube, which is also served at the French Senate and during the Cannes Film Festival. For the meal, wines from the princely vintage 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 specify your dietary requirements when making your reservation. The meal includes a starter, a main course and a dessert, a glass of Champagne and wines from the princely vintage. It is during the meal, before the dessert service, that the Prince presents the medals of the Grand Princely Order of the Pink 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 Palace patio, many prefer to take advantage of the cool to chat, take photos and continue the party at their own pace.
