It appears that Albert has been getting help from a speech coach, as any head of state or politician should these days. Without commenting on the content, I 'd say his elocution is very clear, his delivery very poised, he does not stutter, he comes across, if not as a seasoned speech giver, at least very professional and involved. A little more eye contact with the audience or a little more gesturing (they showed Sarkozy in his usual super-excited mode afterwards) could be more entertaining, but everybody has their own style, and Prince Albert did not disappoint.

According to the Washington Post, yesterday Prince Albert opened the Monaco Embassy in Washington, DC. It mentions that the Prince has a green agenda with hybrid cars and solar panels in the palace which is great. I am so thrilled that he shares my same concerns and interests for our beautiful planet. His environmental foundation can and will do so much for the environment because he truly has a passion for it. The article also mentions that there was "no sign of his current girlfriend" and that he "didn't rule out marriage" by saying "it might happen". He sure loves to play around with the press with these comments. I hope we see pictures of this grand event soon.

green agenda, well i got my laugh this morning. i wonder did the prince fly commericial or his own private gas guzzler, did he helicopter or drive a hybrid car to events. i'm sorry he is either going to have to start walking the walk (literally) as well as talking the talk for me to respect him. he flies around his country (smaller than the lake if live on) in a helicoper, i've never seen him drive up in a hybrid or better yet walk to an event (JFK JR did it all the time and no doubt he had a longer walk) how about a bike any photos on a bike, dont get me started on his private jets- he can't fly for "security", i say his big bubba belly is uncomfortable on commercial.
the palace must be desperate trying to position this immature prince going through a public mid life crisis as being at the front of this issue, whats that line in "cat on a hot tin roof" "oh yes the sour smell of mendacity."
he has to decide if he wants to be taken seriously, he can't have both.
is he a playboy prince w/arm candy (very debatable) flying and flitting with his official companion or the prince of monaco trying to use his position to change people lives and die respected as his father. i don't care how many times he goes to the north pole (flew his private jet no doubt), puts solar panels up or shows up at the UN, my respect will be hard to win back. and it's sad for me i've always adored him, i just feel like the albert i thought i knew doesn't exist anymore, if he ever did.

HE can not afford to make more eye contact then he does. He loses his spot in the page and get's in trouble. I have witnessed that a number of times and it is always the same. Obviously important speeches he prepares well,but when he doesn't have time or it is less important he goes back to stammering. He is still not better in live interviews.

I think it is great that Prince Albert and Bill Clinton are joining forces. He looks so good in these pictures and I am sure he feels proud about what he is doing for the planet. What a great trip it has been for him and I love the new embassy in Washington. What a beautiful building he bought! He does shine when he is representing his beautiful principality.

It shows he can do his job when he wants too. I just wish he'd leave the girlfriend home so that the focus is on his causes and Monaco and not her. JMO

But there are no causes in a soccer match, a rugby match or a gala ball (or an IOC meeting apparently). So he takes her along to those.

Why this constant infantilization of Prince Albert, this constant mothering of him ? He can't do anything right without being reminded of what he has done wrong, could have done wrong, and warning about what he might do wrong in the future . Let's celebrate his accomplishments, leave Charlene out of it, especially since he is leaving Charlene out of it, and focus on the positive. Let's stop obsessing about Charlene when she is not even in the picture. Quite honestly, I find this harping on his perceived failings (especially when he is doing a great job) petty. Sorry, but I get tired of this insistence on peeing on his parade when there is no reason to.

How can you know he's doing a great job??? He has advisors and people who are hardly working for him and they are doing a great job. they are writing for him, keeping the house for him and so on...

I agree with you and its a reason I stopped reading these sites regularly its hard to weed through all that to find the good information. The world is full of dislike, hatred and murder come here its become more of the same. I wonder where the old posters like myself have gone? I'm surprised with all the belittling the few who are posting photo's still are since there work is only made fun of.

Albert this is for your work on Global warming and trying to save the earth for the generations to come. God knows you don't need to be involved in something like that.

Actually there are many of us out there who would like him to take his private life private (not have a companion who constantly causes some sort of headline or gives interviews) so that we can focus on his good side like you pointed out above. I personally would like to see him much more like this than all the tabloid fodder. JMO

Thanks for the link with the very nice pics, Tosca!

I wonder why Tasha is with him again, because yesterday they
attended another event together:

There was a meeting for the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP OF BIATHLE
in Monaco yesterday:

Not a huge fan of Tasha, but she is a much better choise for PA then Charlene.JMO I do not know Tasha's age but she seems mature, cultured.....a way more refined then Charlene. PA and Tasha look nice together as well. He appears more seriuos/dignified standing next to her then he ever looked when with Charlene.

Albert is not standing next to Tasha. He is either standing in front of her or a few people away from her. No indication from these photos that she is anything more than a friend.
