"



In a recent interview, published in the newspaper supplement Le Monde 2, he said he has asked the palace's entire staff of advisors and councillors to resign the day after his accession.

His own advisors have said Albert is willing to look anywhere, particularly the United States, for a more efficient, forward-looking staff to give the 200-hectare-large principality "an image of modernity".

A clean image for Monaco

In addition, Albert said he wants to clean up Monaco's image as a haven for financial swindlers and dubious business practices.

"I will fight with all my strength for Monaco to be beyond reproach, so it will never again be described by the equation Monaco equals money-laundering," said Albert. In fact, he said, "I want to place morality, honesty, ethics at the centre of my government's concerns." "

Ha re the last line! But one can always move forward!

I think you are absolutly right. That dress would look perfect at a summer beach party, but that is just my opinion.

carolines hat is a bit like the black feather one camilla wore on the balcony a few days ago, only it is toned down a bit.

What a disappointment, it would have been great to see the entire family dressed all fancy...it really isn't hard to find something fancy to wear with all the money she has...she can afford designers, stylists...and why aren't her children there? i think they deserve to be there they're part of the family too and yet they're always missing out...pretty unfair...

Stephanie looks good without the jacket--the short hair makes her look like a kid. But what is with the winter tweed Caro was wearing?

i agree with the others. I think that dress is inappropriate for the occasion. Just hang a pair of sunglasses on her tank top and she'd be ready for a summer barbq. I think Princess Caroline looks regal as she should and for the occasion, Stephanie should have at least tried a bit. BUT, i guess the pics just show how different the three may be personality wise.

Stephanie's outfit wasn't appropriate for the enthronement, and yes, someone should've told Andrea and Pierre to get themsleves to a barber!

I'm hoping that since the actual enthronement ceromony is at night we will get to see everyone very dressed up later. As far as Stephanies children go, I don't think it is a case of being "unfair" or "missing out" I think Stephanie has decided she prefers not to have her children at public events.
