There was nothing official in todays paper, but I could imagine that since Haakon and Felipe are friends, that he would come. Besides PAs remark about security was quite legitimate, especially if you consider what an easy target they are. And I don't think anyone would want to have a repetion of Munich 1972.

No, it is still the 19th as PA decided. He didn't see any reason to change it after over 50 years. What did change though is the prayer for the prince during the service, which is sung at every service in the churches of MC. During the mourning period, Rainier has ordered in his testament that the name of the sovereign should be left out to unite father and son (THE moment during the funeral where PA couldn't retain his tears either and every one else started sniffing into their handkerchiefs). The prayer with Alberts name has been sung for the first time in July, where again everyone was moved.

The Spanish we do not consider it to be like that. Neither the politicians nor the population consider it, for what I do not believe that there goes any member of the Spanish Royal Family.

It bothered the question and the form in the one that did it. He is a Chief of State and must be more careful with these topics. The same question that did to Spain could do it to New York, London or his French friends. Today in day no country is to except of the terrorism.

Spain goes 30 years suffering ETA's terrorism, and it has not prevented that in 1992 a Olympic Games were celebrated in Barcelona, and that it had celebrated hundreds of international sports, political and cultural events.

In addition, he was in charge to complicate the things when he raised the possibility that Gibraltar was member of the Olympic organisms.

The Spanish politicians ended enchanted him and their commentaries.

The peculiar thing is that all these things do not worry to him when he or their family comes from vacations to Spain, to enjoy the sun of Marbella, the celebrations of Ibiza or the huntings.:p

translation from deadline press :

Begining of the National Fete Monegasque :
Albert II & Stephanie carry out the traditional handing-over of gifts to the old people

Beginning of the festivities of the National Festival Monegasque with the traditional handing-over of gifts with the old people in the buildings of the Red Cross Monegasque. It is the Stéphanie Princess and her brother the Prince Souverain Albert II, who have, like each year, distributed the bags of present. There was between the Prince and his sister a great complicity. The Princess, very bronzed, is back of Thailand where it spent two weeks of holidays of in love with her friend Matthieu. Radiant and smiling, it would have agreed to be implied still more in the businesses of the State at the sides of her brother.

some members have posted in Prince Albert & Princess Stephanie's threads lots photos of this event :

Here's a caption from Getty, hope this helps:

Quote:
Monaco, MONACO: This picture taken 16 November 2005 shows the recently rennovated audience hall at the Garnier-Opera of Monte-Carlo which will be inaugurated today by Prince Albert the II of Monaco. The hall, designed by Charles Garnier in 1879, had been closed for the rennovations, costing 26.5 million euors, for two years and will host on the 19 November the performance "Voyage a Reims" by Rossini.
