the new route looks really l-o-n-g how many days do the participants have to complete the course??? Are there any particular beauty spots along the way that are perhaps the reason they choose the route that they do??? or is it simply other reason? The pics turned out great of PA as always and whom is the person next to him for those not so new and new one's here?

It seems that the route goes near the water? is this correct? that would be beautiful wouldn't it? makes for great pics from the press too. where do the participants mainly train for this? let's hope we get more pics of the different spots along the routes next time. it just seems like they only took pics at one location last time and that's it.

It really looks like at least part of next Tour de France, the one along the sea shore will be beautiful(and exciting).
I think it will be good business for Monaco too.

It is such an exciting time in Monaco. Like the car races. They really know to bring enticing things to this small place! Smart!!

Prince Albert has been invited to Acadia for next August by Canadian Gov't. Should be a fun occasion! Lovely place!

H-mmm seems like PA has simply vanished? the pics of the tour de France were great. Monaco does seem like it get's lots of visitors for those special functions. As those special functions are such an integral part of the history of Monaco as well as the fun of Monaco.

The Spiegel article is about a solar-cab which was presented in some Spanish and French cities as well as in Monaco.

I kind of like this solar cab.
There are some news about Albert at French google.
Albert accredited two new ambassadors on 10/28:

He also supported some really good project.

And here is some article that seems kind of weird

Pics 3.11.2008

Thanks Avicenna and Lakshmi for the updates

Prince Albert II of Monaco unveils a tablet featuring US Kathleen and
husband Girard Van Barkaloo Hale (Consul General to Monaco), who
died in 1958, on November 3, 2008 in Maille, west of France, during a
ceremony to pay tribute to the couple. Kathleen and Girard Van Barkaloo
Hale are well-known samaritans by their act of "adopting" in 1946 the
French village of Maille, where 124 people, including 44 children, were
killed on Liberation Day, August 25, 1944 by German 3rd Reich soldiers
during World War II

The following pics are maybe a bit older already, they show
Albert during the vote for the presidental election for the
USA in Monaco and although they were released today
the date says it was around two months ago.

Ducii, I guess there are dozens of Limousines with a Monaco Registration number, considering the large number of millionaires based in Monaco.
Anyhow, maybe it was Prince albert's car!
Who knows!

Might have been but it's doubtful because he is a green prince and tends to have smaller cars. I've never heard of him taking a limo around Monaco or nice but of course it could have been him?

Hello, I'm new board. If this belongs somewhere else, please just tell me. But I am confused as to how, this woman got so close to a Prince? She obviously wasn't checked out before the meeting at all, or perhaps the palace was going along with it... for some reason. When I first read this I went to the internet to search for even more, I thought ( god forbid) what if she would have tried to harm him.
Thanks everyone.

What's he actually doing for Monaco these days?

And how far did "fake Kathryn" actually get with the Prince that it has been so highly publicized? I thought he already has a girlfriend??

Hm-m-m any PA "sightings"? It seems the illustrious and most elusive these days is simply "vamooshed?" The recent pics that were put out recent were fab. Let's hope he is wired when he goes to Dusseldorf. Cannot wait for National Day too!

I read on another royal board that P. Albert was going to Dusseldorf, Germany, but I can't find anything online.

I've read in a German article ( that can be found here ) that Albert is
expected to visit Düsseldorf ( in western Germany) next February
2009. There are no details given, things are still in the planning phase,
but if he makes that visit, it'll be about his environmental-foundation.

ii-it appears PA is looking rather d-a-s-h-i-n-g these days, doesn't it!!! Much more streamlined. It's probably a good idea to get everyone involved in the artic project since most that area seems pretty affected by global warming?This color suit looks nice too!!

I really like that Albert's suit, wonder what material it was because it looked like linen but seems impossible someone wearing this kind of material in November. Anyway, Albert looks good, outfit has nice color.
Is it just me or really French minister, Jean Louis Borloo, looks almost like prince Ernst-August in pic #3 posted by iceflower.
