I agree, the second picture is really nice with Albert's choice of clothes for the event and the photographer framed that shot up nice getting the statue in the picture and I even like the pink rose in the foreground. Nice job.

Isn't there another Custeau out of Monaco as well or are they related???

The postage stamp was one of the lovliest one's we have seen coming out of Monaco yet because it's simply so colorful. Naturally such a colourful place as Monaco.

the pics were fab it must have been a treat to have them there.
Certainly anything out of the Brazilian Amazon forests must be beautiful!

Thanks Iceflower,

I was wondering if Albert and the Cousteau family were involved together on anything? I'll have to read up on this event.

I think there is some bad feelings between the original Cousteau, he had a secret family and when his wife died he married the women he had also had children with and then he left the Society name to her? But the ones you read about mostly are from the first wife, his one surviving son and his grandchildren from that family I believe. I thought the other family was in France somewhere? I'm not completely straight on it. But I like Ocean Adventures on PBS and I beleive the guy that Albert is with today is Jacques older son? He's based in Santa Barabara, California.

I agree they are probably looking at some really nice pictures.

Maybe you mean Grace's bronze bust uncovered during Albert's official visit in Belgium?...This statue in Monaco garden is a different one.

Thank you! That's what I thought. Do you happen to know when this one was done? I'm going to have to try to find some more pictures of it, it looks really nice.

Prince Albert's speech/letter in 2008, on being awarded the "Départ" of the Tour de France:
"I am delighted to announce that the 2009 Tour de France will start from Monaco. The Principality had the pleasure, a very long time ago, of seeing the Tour de France pass through the town, in 1964 for the last time. Forty five years later, we will have the honour of hosting the start if this unique adventure...."
Tour de France 2008 - Grand start 2009

The Départ is on Saturday, July 4th.

I think this is great and I am looking forward to watching it. I bet this year ends up being very popular too. This is a good year for it!

does AnYoNe know whether or not this course is going to be tougher than all the other courses of the tour de france!!?

It seems to us that it is; however, it really must be quite picturesque shouldn't it??

It certainly promises to be a fun filled competition which we look forward to seeing happening in Monaco.

We wish all the participants good luck and cannot wait to see it happening

Didn't someone mention on one of the threads that PA said he was going to quit his involvement with the IOC because his schedule is too busy??

It's wonderful that he can find the time to be involved with them still. Does anyone know whrtr the 2016 games are going to be held or is this meeting for that ?

Chicago, Madrid, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo were chosen for the shortlist in 2008.

This meeting is to launch the bidding process for the 2016 Games.

The host city will be announced at the 121st IOC Session in Copenhagen on Oct. 2nd, 2009. At that time, the Olympic Congress is also on.

Just arrived in my inbox:

The latest newsletter of the Fondation Prince Albert II de Monaco.
To subscribe, email newsletter@fpa2.mc or go to the website.

Dear Moderators,
is it worth having a separate thread on the Fondation Prince Albert II ?


"Fifteen days before (Monaco's) entry into the Legend of the Tour de France..."

All over Monaco, the "tricots" of the cyclists are hanging across the streets... great photo... 400 volunteers are getting ready to help on the great day .....

According to Monaco-Matin, the Tour will be "une formidable publicité pour la Principauté" - no translation necessary :-)

350 million viewers' eyes will be riveted on the streets of Monaco....

Monaco.maville.com 15 jours avant d'entrer dans la légende du Tour de France...

what kind of preparations does Monaco have to do for the TOUR DE FRANCE??
Aren't they using the same route as the GRAND PRIX?
It appears this is a pretty special thing to be happening in Monaco! it will be a beautifully scenic ride and that alone makes it a hugely special occasion for those involved.

Bad news for PA and Monaco:

Through the economic crisis, the Société des Bains de Mer (SBM) has lost 57% of its net income. Albert and some of the family are shareholders.

Monaco.maville.com Crise économique : le résultat net de la SBM plonge de 57 %

Albert attends the centenary celebrations of the Monaco Fire Brigade....

His great-grandfather Albert I founded the "Compagnie des Sapeurs-pompiers de Monaco" on June 19th, 1909.

Nice photo of Albert with two senior firefighters....
