You're most welcome, Nathalie Cox

During the event 30 athletes were meeting in Monaco to announce
the launch of the "Champions of Peace", a group of athletes committed
and willing to serve world peace through sport. Surely a project Albert
supports a lot.

Here are some bigger additions:

PA's next outing on November 30th:

The National Press Club in Washington DC, where he will talk about Monaco's sustainable practices and the protection of the marine environment.
(His great-grandfather Albert I addressed the Press Club in 1913).

He'll also attend the Antarctic Treaty summit at the Smithsonian Museum.

On Wednesday, November 25, Albert had one more event,
he inaugurated the first Tesla store in Monaco and France
with Elon Musk CEO of Tesla.

The Tesla Roadster is an all-electric sports car produced by the electric
car firm Tesla Motors. The Roadster is the first production automobile to
use lithium-ion battery cells and the first production EV to travel more
than 200 miles (320 km) per charge.

Yeah, he looks great next to posh cars, but I suspect the photocall was another opportunity to show his commitment to alternative technologies. No wonder he gets so many opportunities to show it, and the manufacturers get excellent piblicity into the bargain!

The German wikipedia entry says 252 PS, in case that helps I always forget
how to transform PS into kilometres per hour.. If you search for "Tesla Roadster"
on the internet, you can find quite a lot of sites and information

Albert is the Patron of the second International Congress on Resposible Stem Cell Research, held in Monaco in November 26th to 28th.

The event is organised by the World Federation of the Catholic Medical Associations, the Pontifical Academy for life, the Bioethical Consultative Committee of Monaco, and the Foundation Jérome Lejeune.

The theme of the congress is: "Adult Somatic Stem Cells: New Perspectives".

As I didn't see any other member of the Monaco Family, I'm putting the pics here. Maybe they go in another thread, that's up to the mods:

It's very comforting that at least there are pictures that Caroline & Stephanie and the children will be able to have of the funeral activities. It is obviously a difficult time for their family so we are glad they had the privacy that they needed for themselves with just a few pics for everyone.

Thanks NC,
Does anybody know thecause of death for 76 yarold Lizanne who missed her sister's wedding?Prince Albert chivalrous as a pallbearer at his Aunt Lizanne's funeral. And if I am not mistaken a tear or two in the last pic. This closes a chapter that was like a final link to Grace.Life to Aunt Lizanne's son and family, the Grimaldis and all the rest of us.

No cause of death was stated for Lizanne in any of the articles I read. However, I believe she suffered several dibilitating illnesses which caused her to sell the Kelly beach home and move to a retirement/assisted living community close to her suriviving son Chris LeVine and her grandchildren.

we certainly didn't hear what type of Cancer she had or what else lizzy suffered from. She was certainly blessed to have lived long enough to see the children and watch them grow.

PA pics in DC turned out wonderful. It was gladdening to see him happy and in good spirits in spite of everything! Pa is certainly comfortable in his stomping grounds of New York!
