At this photo Prince Albert reminds me an actor from far 50s and 60s, the black glasses gives him a bit mysterious!

Albert has said he prefers to drive himself except he has a driver for official events. He's been given several electric and hybrids over the years we've had photo's of them posted stating that.

Bones, it's not that unusual, you even see British royals
like the Duke of York or the Countess of Wessex driving
themselves to an official event they have
I've seen that, I just do not often see heads of state doing it; driving around their countries unattended. I've seen pictures of the Queen driving and I've seen pics of former President Bush driving his truck with King Juan Carlos having a big laugh about something, but you don't (or at least I don't) often see the Queen of the UK & Duke of Edinburgh or the Emperor & Empress of Japan just out for a drive around the country. I'm sure many would probably like to, but not everyone can.

The trouble with British Royals is that they get fined by the courts for excessive speeding!
As to Albert, I can't see him acquiescing to being driven all the time.

Albert's bodyguards are in cars around him. He has two with him at all times just walking around the Palace.

Question

Auction of Princess Ira Von Furstenberg: When & where those pics were taken?
Charlene's dress is nice.

They were taken on July 23, in Monaco. That's why I asked about them.

If you mean the Lebanon-related event, the pics are on the "Prince Albert Current Events" thread.

It's indeed a bit confusing, but you were totally right, they
had not been posted before. It's a bit strange that they had
not been released any earlier. Last year in June there was a
similar event hosted by Ira von Fürstenberg and Prince Albert
and Charlene Wittstock attended as well, you can find pics
of that event in an earlier thread.

I like the dress Charlene's wearing, the colour is so flattering.

Princess Ira von Fürstenburg was a long-term friend and confidante of the late Prince Rainier.
It's pleasing to see that relations with the current Reigning Prince remain cordial.

Wow. Much can be said for and against Miss Wittstock I'm sure, but no one can deny the fact that she is a very attractive woman. Monaco's Sovereign Prince certainly has a good eye

Bones, he's always had a keen eye for the ladies. My sister met him once and told me how nice he was.

Yes, Bones, so she is. And it's nice to see the two of them together and relaxed.
To quote an American (?) expression: "If it ain't broke, why fix it?

Iceflower I think the trip to Tuscany is more than a couple of weeks ago. I saw these photos about a month ago. I could be mistaken, but they were in Tuscany not too long after the St. Tropez photos were taken.

Isn't it nice when you can enjoy the beach? Thanks for the photos. The blue swimsuit is perfect for her!
