MONACO'S GREEN PRINCE SUPPORTS DOLPHIN CAMPAIGN

In his wet suit and diving gear Prince Albert took his reputation as Europe's most eco-friendly sovereign a step further this week. Posing with a life-size statue of a dolphin, Monaco's green prince was once again promoting positive messages on the environment.

hey everyone omg what fabulous pics these couple of days is PA related to the Duke of Edimburgh. however the pics inside all lit up are beautiful. PA is without a doubt a most versatile person when it comes to a full range of things he knows how to do. i don't know about any one else on this sight but dolphins are some of my fav creatures.

I deam about envronment-friendly cars for my city too....soooo awful air we have here. It would be great to use such cars everywhere

By the way, while I was on holidays Albert was pictured together with dolphin. And I am curious about that dolphin, what is it - metal, stone or what? Is it white, greyish or silvery in reality?

Please remember that this thread is for Prince Albert's current events...not Charlene and endless questions pertaining to her whereabouts. When she is available and out and about with Albert, I am sure other members will share the pictures.

Thank you.

I see that Albert is at the Yacht show. Does he own a yacht? He said in an interview several years ago that he didn't at that time. He didn't want to take a slip in the harbor from someone else who needed it. I didn't know if that had changed or if Rainier left him a yacht in the will.

Last summer we saw him on Caroline's ship, Pacha III. Didn't see him on it this year however. Hard to imagine that Prince Rainier did not have a ship.

If I am not mistaken the yacht of Prince Rainier has been sold this year. It was Deo Juvante II where he and Princess Grace spent their honeymoon. I don't know why, but I doubt that Albert had an intention to save that yacht for his honeymoon. I expect he will take the new one if one day he will decide to marry. Though, IMHO, a sailing vessel decorated in crimson-white colors could look more romantic for such occasion.

Wet suit? Oh, no! He sought legal recouse against a dolphin!

Well, IM surprised that Albert was not in attendance at the UN session in New York this week. It seems odd for him to miss it.

It probably didn't fit his schedule with Vienna etc. Besides he was already several times this year in the states, so I guess he considered the meetings he attended more important.

hey everyone well what an i-n-t-er-est-i-n-g week. Seems PA has an uncanny resemblence to the Duke of Edimburgh or is it the other way around well in either case 2 handsome guys who look alike in the same family. wow. plus that dolphin statue is really cool i was surprised to know he knew how to scuba dive there seems to be no end to PA talents. well with the environment the way it has been it's a good way to be.

those pictures from the 70's were amazing it's the first time we've seen some pictures from that era. he's managed to grow up and still maintain his good looks that's great. he's got his father's good looks it seems any opinions on this

He is a handsome man without a doubt, but it's the Kelly good looks. Althought Prince Rainier was a handsome man as well, Albert has always looked like the Kelly family. This includes the hair line which he gets from his grandfather John B. Kelly Sr.

I know a lot of the captions say Albert is with the Duke of Edinboro. But that is the name of QE II husband. Isn't Prince Edward called Count Wessex?

Prince Edward is the Earl of Wessex, not Duke of Edinburgh.
They (Prince Albert, Earl and Countess of Wessex) were present at the Anniversary of the Foundation of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award, hence the midleading idea that Prince Edward is Duke of Edinburgh.

Thanks Avalon. I knew it was Wessex but the title part had me tripping. I knew Sophie went by Countess Wessex. To me he is just Prince Edward-no need to muck it up further. Just like the Duke of York is still Prince Andrew to me. Oh well.
