Princess Grace to receive Walk of Style Award

Prince Albert will be on hand later this year to accept an award on behalf of his late mother. I think this is the first time this award has been given to someone for their own personal style, it has historically been given to designers.

Walk of Style Award? I never heard about it, but Grace truly deserves it.

I found some funny IMO article that mentions Albert:
Les derniers pêcheurs de Monaco cohabitent avec les méga-yachts - Actualité France - Monde - France - Monde - La Voix du Nord
English translation:
Google Translate

Last paragraph:Even Prince Albert II has tried it: "Two years ago, he made a tour with us. I said "Okay, my Lord, but here is not the Love Boat" and it helped us to raise the nets, "says Andrew.

Albert seems here a really nice guy.

chuckle whaaat a great article!! Seems PA knows a bit of how things are done in Monaco after all!!

so glad for the translation because our collegiate translation left a few words out!!! (sigh)

it would seem Monaco's fish trade is booming as all the hoteliers must require the seafood for their delightful creations!

Article Times and Transcript Moncton NB

A true life prince was in New Brunswick this week, whether anybody knew it or not.
A provincial government source tells the Times & Transcript that Monaco's Prince Albert II visited several sites in the province last week, including some stops in and around Moncton. The trip lasted about four-days before he left.
The source says Prince Albert was simply in the province vacationing, and didn't attend any ceremonies or formal events. In fact, the only reason the provincial government knew of the low-key visit was because they had to work out security details with the RCMP.
Other than those finer points, Prince Albert stayed out of the spotlight for the most part and mingled around privately. ..........

I just read that. Wild. I've been to Canada a few times, lovely place, but who would ever think of someone from the French Riviera going to vacation in Canada?

I read about Albert vacationing in Canada many times. First time I read about him going to vacation in Canada was in early 1990s.

I found this article also .It may connect PA's secret visit to Moncton with these people. Most are Bilderberg Group members. Is there a connection? Moncton is the closest international airport to Fox Harbour.
I do not believe it is a coincidence.

Anthony G what you wrote about Prince Albert being in New Brunswick and tying it to the Bilderbergers is really interesting!! How and why do you think he fits into this group?

With Monaco, like the rest of the world suffering economic downturns, it would make sense for him to connect with these people to try and get them to invest in businesses in Monaco.

And perhaps all he wants is a proper holiday.

He spends quite a bit of time on meetings with investors. www.monaco.telecom.mc regularly reports on business meetings PA convenes; from September, he's on the annual bandwagon again with various Yacht shows and other meetings, trying to sell "Monaco plc" :-)

Maybe he is being recruited to join the Group?
http://video.google.ca/googleplayer....&hl=en&fs=true

Maybe this was just a vacation but its timing looks king of shaky with him visiting Shawn Graham while Graham is visiting Majors, Bush, McKenna etc. Yup that is more logical. Dipping his feet in the warm waters of the Northumberland Strait and enjoying 85 degree days

OK, I don't bring anything new, but here is some article that says about departure from N.B. Canada:Monaco's Prince Albert leaves N.B. after 4-day private visit

Thanks for the article. Basically he can hold private talks with individuals on any number of subjects. What private visit means is that there is no official public commitments nor was he discussing anything officially. A lot of heads of states hold private talks which only means that there is nothing official to report and that what was ever discussed was off the record. It could also mean that he was discussing his own private business affairs and investments. Could be any number of things that won't be announced. It's a long trip for 4 days of vacation which I don't think it was. JMO
