seems that Albert is not ageing any more. he looks younger than he is. He seems always happy and full of energy. Most of the time I see Grace`s spirits in him. Her smile from her late years is Albert`s smile

I've heard other people, commentators and authors etc say that Prince Albert was the one who most took after Princess Grace, especially in his attitude and mannerisms; very friendly, very compassionate and just so darn "nice". The Prince does seem to be one of those people who is at home anywhere, nothing phases him, he tries everything and seems to enjoy himself doing it. I can't recall ever seeing him angry come to think on it.

Yes I've read this too - I think Gwen Robyns has made this comment in either an interview or her biography of Grace. He seems to have "the common touch" (in the nicest possible way) making it easy for him to relate to people fraom all walks of life. I think the decision to send him to America for his education probably helped a great deal in forming his outgoing character, plus he had excellent role models in his parents. He also successfully manages to control his speech impediment which must be so difficult when your constantly heard speaking in public..

I would add to this that he could quite easily live permanently in total luxury, but the two journeys to the North and South Poles show that he is happy to forego his privileges in favour of his environmental interests or other causes.

Isn't that interesting. Here is a Prince who owes his "celebrity" to no one but God and his parentage signing autographs for his fans while many celebrities who owe their fame entirely to their paying fans will often never bother to do the same. Speaks well for him.

I love image No. 2 - he looks like a comedian.
It's good that he can be natural in his expressions.

While all the pics are fab--Reneta was right number 2's expression on PA's face was a 'priceless' impromptu pic!

They were having a conversation. They catch Albert with his mouth open a lot while speaking.

I like Prince Albert in all his expressions, he has a charisma,anyway!
My favourite photo is the third as if Prince Albert is trying to check a product for quality!

More news about Monaco and the "Grey List":

Monaco, along with more than 100 other countries, are attending a summit today and tomorrow at Los Cabos, Mexico, in order to decide what other steps will have to be taken to increase transparency and exchange of information about banking and fiscal matters. This is a lead-up to the next G20 meeting at Pittsburgh on September 24th and 25th.

So far, Monaco has signed 8 out of 12 accords.
PA has chosen as his envoy to Mexico Franck Biancheri.

In spite of Prince Albert's age, he is still a handsome man.
I was astonished by the second photo, his eyes are beautiful like a colour of the sea, the lips are thin, all the features are aristocratic.

I know I keep saying it, but for me he cuts a very good figure as a statesman.
The other attributes are in addition to that.

Smile Glistening Seas

O-m-g queenofthelight you can read my mind!! that's my thoughts exactly. Great minds think alike!! He does look quite delightful in the Swiss pics that color really looks good on him. PA is obviously a good orator because he sure does a lot of those meetings.
