Oh well, it happens to the best of us, royal or not. Our metabolism slows down when we hit middle age, and it becomes harder to lose weight.

It's called middle aged spread, stress, to many carbs and not enough exercise due to meetings. He's lost weight he said he has and you can see it in the newer photo's.

My previous post was removed for some reason so I reiterate, unlike his father and mother Prince Albert has let himself go over the years and blaming stress and meetings and too many carbs doesn't excuse that fact. I am middle aged and have weighed the same (59kg) for the last 20 years because I look after myself. Good on you for not seeing anything wrong but I think as any member of any Royal family they have a certain standard that they should adhere to, it comes with the territory.

I read it before it disappeared. I wasn't making an excuse just stating what can cause it but no problem. Actually Prince Rainier and Princess Grace gained weight. In her case it was the medicine she was taking.

The list is impressive, however as any typical American growing up at the same time on the Eastern seaboard, it is not altogether unheard of. Maybe for a royal it is. It just might be that he has a lot of Kelly in him. For example, almost half of the sports are either on school curricula in the USA and the others are recreational ones.

Dog Sledding No. 26

I forgot one we had photo's of that he's done as a sport "Dog Sledding". The photo's are from monaco.northpole2006.mc Photo1 Photo2. Iceflower you were helping find these what happened? We all missed this one. I realized it and started laughing the Expedition has its own thread. Prince Albert - Expedition to the North Pole: April 2006 - The Royal Forums

h-m-mm-m his father was very good at tennis as well as his mother. They obviously did a great job of encouraging PA to be a well rounded athlete because he's got so many sports he likes. Does anyone know whether PA is better at some, more than others; or is he good at all of them??

h-m-m-m let me rephrase--we all "know" that PA does a "lot" of sports but is one his Favorite?? Personally i would like to see him doing maybe golf? if he is good at it. Although he seems pretty busy and that is a sport that cannot be done in a hurry that is his fav??

Are the football and rugby the sports that Monaco is concentrating on at the moment? It certainly seems to be the sports i favor along all the others on the list too?
