Your best bet is to look at the sites which list Monaco events - I think the Golden Foot awards must be sometime around then- Albert attends this and it is easy to spectate outside the Grimaldi centre (where the footballers plant their feet in concrete!) If you buy the Nice Matin or listen to Riviera Radio you occasionally get details of up & coming appearances

Golden Foot Award is on Oct. 10th, so too late.
I also have the problem with public appearences but next week and hopefully I'll get some information IN Monaco.
But the visit at the Oceanographic Museum and the Palace is a MUST

The Awards ceremony for the Prince Pierre of Monaco Foundation is on Oct 4, and the 26th Monte-Carlo Magic Stars is on the 5th-9th.

This site might be some help, as well as checking Monaco's palace website, and the government website.

...Smush, you suggested the Oceanographic museum....isn't that right next to St Martin and St. Pierre, Caro and Steph's homes?. Just a thought.
Another must stop is to see where Grace/Rainier are buried in Cathedral du St. Nicholas.

Another useful site of cool stuff to check out in Monaco.

And the 30th anniversary gala opening of The Princess Grace Theatre on Oct 1-3 (gala on the 3rd). "An Ideal Husband" is the performance.

You might want to check AS Monaco FC too-Albert & Steph's kids (and sometimes Andrea and Pierre) are known to frequent games-well the ducruets used to anyway.

Is Monaco a country where the spouse of the reigning Prince has to be Catholic for them to marry?

No. Before Charlene married Albert the Archbishop made it clear that there was no need for her to convert to Roman Catholicism, although she did do so.

Are you all aware that in Monaco people are not entirely free to speak about the royal family? I guess you are, so the reports from Monaco are not at all relieble for me.

In Monaco, theycan say what they want about the princely family, it is not a dictatur. this country belongs to Europe and there is a court at Stassbourg where every body can claim if he is condamned in his country Monaco as others.

It seems that if the comment is not negative you do not find it reliable.

Of course I'm aware,since the time of Prince Rainier in fact..I'm aware of the censorship etc,but it'll be like opening a can of worms and I don't wish to speak ill of the dead(deceased members of the RF).Monaco is after all,a shady place for shady people. I love and been following this family all my life (i'm 38 yrs old btw) but I'm no blind to their flaws too.They're just human beings after all.

Same here. I´ve been following the family since I was a child, and I do not intend to critizice their way of living. It´s up to them if they accept it. Some said Monaco was a place where one´s will was everybody´s benefit. That used to be like that, but times have changed and the country faces different problems from the Rainier times. I started to hear some complaints some time ago, on TV, on internet. So I do not think they see all perfect and magical, as some want to depcit the situation.

It's their private pool. The palace is owned by Prince Albert not the government. Only invited guests can swim there.

Actually, the phrase is: "A sunny place for shady people" A phrase that PA has been trying to change for at least the last decade. Monaco seems like a nice place that (in the past) has attracted folks that don't have the best of intentions.

No place is perfect and there are always people who will complain no matter how well they have it. Monaco has the highest standard of living in the world so I don't think they can really complain especially when most of the world is currently in recession or depression.

Well, even of you think they don´t have the right (and that is quite unfair) they do. They complain for instance because some could lose their houses. Have you thought that not all the monegasques can afford the high living standard of the principality? That some of them are forced to leave their houses because more skycrapers have to be built? I think it´s a good reason to complain. No one knows what the situation is until one talks to "real people" or hear the speak frankly, without the restriction they have always had.

Those were French people who were receiving a housing subsidy from Monaco. Probably someone in the family at one time was essential personel.eg policeman, firemen and they continued to get the subsidy after they were no longer essential. Heaven forbid that a Frenchman might have to move to France and pay fair market value for his apartment. Monagasque citizens are still eligible for the subsidy.I did read that they were trying to resolve the problem; especially with the elderly.

I think the law is that you can't insult the royal family. That doesn't mean you can't complain about issues. Even if you did insult them you would probably just get a ticket, not go to jail.The residents of Monaco live very well. It's not a 3rd world country dictatorship.Actually, Monaco is run simiarly to the Disney theme parks. They run a very tight and disciplined ship and it's "the happiest place in the world".
