I'm also curious on who is the blonde next to Albert II? He is certantly showing off in public.

ps. When I clicked on the fourth thumbnail, Albert kissing the hand of the blonde, it crashed my page and I had to log in again.

hey Toledo,

according to Abaca's caption :
Quote:
Prince Albert II of Monaco with a South African female friend, Charlene Wittstock, at the opening ceremony of the XX Winter Olympic Games in Turin, Italy, on February 10, 2006.
there's a discussion going on on Prince Albert's thread..

if you go to Abaca site (here & here), there must've been like more than 100 photos of them.
looks like the press decide to focus on them and only took 1-2 photos of the other royals. so unfair.. :(

Thanks Purple_Platinum :)

Hi, Kwanfan! If you can read my mind you'll know that I hope Michelle Kwan gives all she got and wins that elussive gold medal this time around! I've been a fan of her for over three Winter Olympics , past the Lillihamer aftermath.

Maybe he was licking some mustard off her hand? Y'know how messy hot dogs can get. :p

This sucks for Kwan. I was so sad for her when I read that she had to withdraw. A terrible way to end ones career.

TRH Princesses Amalia and Alexia of The Netherlands attended speed-skating (3000 meter for women) today, with their parents. One was dressed with an orange shawl and the other on with an orange cap.

Luciano and Sophia aren't much loved in Italy (perhaps they are in certains parts of Italy) . They both were involved with bad "tax stories". I don't know how much Luciano owes to the Italian Inland Revenue, but now he's a Monegasque citizen... so, bye, bye money...:)

As for Donna Sophia she's a naturalized Swiss citizen, so like many other fellow Italians I don't feel represented by those people, and since they no longer are Italian citizens, why call them to represent a country they've refused to belong to?
Honestly Donna Sophia already settled her scores with Italian law by accepting to go to jail for some time ( I can't recall how long she was jailed) back in the '70s, but now she seldom comes to her native country, but when she gets the money to.

I do not know anything about Naples' bad pizzas sold in tourist areas, because when we were in Naples my Mom forbade us to eat pizza ( if you wish I could explain you why she did via PM ).

I didn't mean to say that foreign tourists are ignorant. When you travel to Spain you expect to attend a flamenco show, so when you come to Italy you expect to listen to Pavarotti... I guess we're all in the same boat... :)

It's so evident that the two of them enjoy spending time together.

Danish and Norwegian - the languages are similar enough.
