Albert II and the Olympics

I thought it would be easy for every one of us to post all the pictures and things for future reference anyone would be able to find the photo's, etc., better in a separate thread like we have the Rose Balls, Red Cross Balls etc. It really isn't him in sports since he isn't competing. People wouldn't have to search each current event thread to see what he was doing on this subject and who knows we might even get some of the men involved to tell us what is going on.

Okay it just didn't seem right to not see Albert walk in with the Monaco athletes.

He didn't walk in with them. He was sitting with the crowed.
Maybe Steph and the kids will attend ... would be cool.

He's doing his job for the IOC and participating with the crowd in a new status not being part of the games.

As always, LadyM, you are the voice of calm and reason in the midst of hysteria. Wish I could learn your grace.

Has anyone seen any photos of PA enjoying the nightlife in Torino?

I see several of the hats Albert and Charlene were wearing. The woman in white looks to old to be Charlene. Paca might know who these people are with Albert they look fimilar. The man to Alberts left is wearing a Grimaldi Coat of Arms.
At this site you will find more pictures of the Olympics not just Albert. http://editorial.gettyimages.com/source/sear ... tHeadlines.aspx?p=2&y=2006&m=2 .
