The daytime celebrations included a mass at Monaco's cathedral, attended by the senior members of the princely family.

Princess Charlene was elegant in white, accessorized with climber-style earrings and the ribbon of the Order of Saint-Charles.

With thanks to the Royal Couturier, the earrings are by Repossi, made of yellow diamonds set in white gold.

Princess Caroline reached for a vintage suite of gold and diamond jewelry that belonged to her mother, the late Princess Grace. (Learn more about the suite here!)

She also wore the ribbon of the Order of Saint-Charles pinned to her coat.

Princess Stephanie kept her jewelry minimal but sparkly, wearing two diamond studs in each ear.

The next generation of the Grimaldis was also on hand for the daytime celebrations.

The grandchildren of Prince Rainier and Princess Grace who were in attendance -- Andrea Casiraghi, Pierre Casiraghi, Alexandra of Hanover, and Louis Ducruet -- sat in a prominent position in the cathedral. Tatiana Casiraghi, Beatrice Casiraghi, and Marie Ducruet were seated just behind them.

The entire family, including the children, also gathered at the steps of the Palais Princier.

The Grimaldi children, grandchildren, and in-laws were gathered at the top of the elaborately decorated staircase.

Alexandra of Hanover, the younger daughter of Princess Caroline, wore pearls and rings on both hands, including these stacked rings on her right hand.

Tatiana Santo Domingo Casiraghi, Caroline's daughter-in-law, wore classic pearl drops and a silver-toned pin.

The always glamorous Beatrice Borromeo Casiraghi, another daughter-in-law of Princess Caroline, paired green statement earrings with her green plaid coat.

One of the newest members of the family is Marie Chevallier Ducruet, who married Princess Stephanie's son, Louis, earlier this year. She wore a pearl necklace with coordinating earrings.

As always, the highlight of the balcony appearance was the Grimaldi kids.

Hereditary Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella dressed in costume for the festivities: a miniature military uniform and a dress and beret in Monaco's colors.

Gabriella even waved a patriotic flag as the family greeted the crowds below.

The twins were also joined by a cousin, Kaia-Rose Wittstock, one of Princess Charlene's nieces. Kaia-Rose is the daughter of Charlene's brother, Gareth, and his wife, Roisin.

Both of Charlene's brothers joined the family for the celebrations. Gareth (who lives in Monaco) is standing behind Princess Gabriella and Kaia-Rose here, while Sean (who lives in South Africa) stands behind Prince Jacques. You'll also spot Sean's wife, Chantell, in the background.

Five of Princess Caroline's seven grandchildren were also in attendance. Andrea and Tatiana's three children, Sacha, India, and Maximilian, were present, as were Pierre and Beatrice's two sons, Stefano and Francesco.

The Grimaldis also gathered on Tuesday evening for the annual National Day gala at the opera, where they were greeted by Monegasque children charmingly dressed in traditional attire.

Princess Charlene chose a tuxedo for this year's gala, and she accessorized with some major jewels.

Charlene's gorgeous ruby and diamond earrings echoed Monaco's national colors -- and the red and white sash of the Order of Saint-Charles. She also wore a major ring on her left hand, probably her diamond engagement ring. (Charlene's ring is something of a chameleon; it has looked quite different in photographs from different angles and occasions, so I'm always nervous to try to identify it. But she has an enormous diamond engagement ring, and this is an enormous diamond ring, so there you go.)

She also added even more sparkle with a ruby and diamond bracelet on her right wrist.

Princess Caroline continued the red and white theme in both her dress and her jewels.

She wore diamond and ruby drop earrings and a lovely diamond station necklace. She also secured the sash of the Order of Saint-Charles with one of her ruby and diamond clip brooches.

And then there's the incredible ring on her right hand! Rubies don't generally come in this size, so I'm guessing it's another stone -- perhaps a spinel? Either way, the stone appears to be in a modern diamond setting.

One more lady from the extended family also attended the gala: the always-chic Beatrice Borromeo, who wore diamond wreath-style hoops (perhaps Chopard?) and a gold necklace with her outfit for the occasion.
