Monaco already has a strong link with Corsica because of their mutual Patron Saint Devote. PA has visited the island on several occasions.

Prince Rainier had visited the island in 2003 and they decided to
name the museum after him in order to honor him, it won't be a
museum about him or Monaco, it's planned as an archaeological
museum with excavations and training opportunities for students.

Pics 27.9.2009

Prince Albert attended the opening ceremony of the VI

Beirut, Lebanon, September 27, 2009.

The Francophone Games are being held in an Arab country
for their first time since their inception in 1989 and the coming
10 days will see more than 3000 participants from 68 countries
compete in a variety of cultural and sporting events.

This is in regard to Prince Alberts address about climate change. I'm wondering about the impact of rising sea levels on Monaco. Does anyone know of the projected damage it could do to the principality?

Well, with the general threat of rising sea levels, Monaco could of
course be affected as well as it sits on the shores of the Mediterranean,
especially as in the past Monaco also increased it's size by reclaiming
land from the sea. But I don't have any exact information..

The awareness of climate change, environmental degradation and
energy waste have also been Prince Albert's themes at the
"Challenge Future"-Congress in Bochum, Germany on September 25.

On pic 3 you can see him with Gabriele Inaara Begum Aga Khan.

The Begum Aga Khan is the daughter of Renate Thyssen who married into the Thyssen steel dynasty.
Both mother and daughter devote their lives to their charities.

That's true, especially here in Germany, you can see them quite
often at charity events.

Today Prince Albert made an official visit to Lebenon's President:

Lebanon's President Michel Suleiman meets with Prince Albert II of
Monaco at the presidential palace in Baabda, near Beirut September
28, 2009.

---> Pic

And here are some official pics that were made on September 18,
prior to an interview for the newspaper Nice Matin about his
visit and connection to the island Corsica he visited last weekend.

Great to see the family-portrait from the Rose Ball in 1999 in
the background of pic 4

Back to work after the summer break for the justice tribunal in
presence of Prince Albert of Monaco, Monaco, October 1, 2009:

I can't remember having seen similar pics in previous years before
or have I simply forgotten it?!

I don't know why, I have a feeling I have already remembered seeing these photos.
PA looks very nice, thank you for posting, Iceflower!

Here's No. 7631 of the "Journal de Monaco", the official bulletin of the Principality, featuring the start of the legal year (October 1st). It's from 2003.
First there's a mass to attend, and then the judges assemble in the audience chamber of the Appeal Court.

N° 7631 du VENDREDI 26 DÉCEMBRE 2003 * ANNEE JUDICIAIRE 2003-2004.

As if there wasn't enough going on in Monaco already - here's yet another cause for celebration:

On October 5th, Monaco celebrates the fifth anniversary of becoming a member of the Council of Europe.
For the Conseil National, Stephane Valéri appeared at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe this week, at the invitation of the President of its Parliamentary Assembly. The visit is to "tidy up" issues which hadn't been fully addressed by the Monégasque government. After an hour-long debate, the Assembly decided unanimously that Monaco had addressed most of the outstanding matters for concern.
Monaco.maville.com Monaco répond désormais aux exigences du Conseil de l'Europe

From the Council of Europe website, "Document 12012" from September 14th, 2009,
"Honouring of obligations and commitments by Monaco" from the Committee on the Honouring of Obligations and Commitments by Member States of the Council of Europe (Monitoring committee):

One of the still outstanding matters, the Social Charter, still awaits approval by Monaco's Conseil d'Etat (Council of State), to see if/when it can become part of Monegasque law.

The Prince had requested personally that this would have been done in September 2009, and he told the CoE that he wished "to see the Charter ratified by the end of the year".
(So it's not just Obama who has to wait patiently for others to get on with a particular issue or job)

This is the link to the (lenghty) Council of Europe document on Monaco:

Better late than never, Nice-Matin's article, and photo (with PA) of the start of the judiciary year in Monaco which started on October 1st.

The average length of detention was 38 days for minors and 96 days for adults.

More time is spent on fighting money-laundering. and less on "pédopornographie".

Thanks for the link. It's a rare treat to see Prince Albert in Monaco, enthroned, looking all so very princely with his berobed judges around him. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen a photo of him quite like this one, but I like it, I wish there were more of them or others of similar occasions.

Yes, I feel the same. He can "do" gravitas when required.
What I've always found sad is that after becoming Reigning Prince, he (and his predecessors) can only sit on the throne for a little while on that day, but never again.
Makes you wonder what the throne is for :-)
