Talking Glistening Seas

The artwork in these pics was quite nice as well as the pics of the fun PA was having!! The ocean-y background with the stallion was particularly fetching at a glance!

Don't worry, that was not a romantic date. Jo Champa is happily married to Joseph Farrell.

Anyone know any more about what the meeting with the Knights of Malta was all about? The photo of Prince Albert holding the insignia makes me wonder. He's not a member is he? I never heard of him being one and he doesn't really fit the "type" I have in my mind for the modern Knights of Malta. It just makes me curious as I've never seen anyone posing with a bauble like that unless they were presenting it to someone or being given it themselves. Might be good for the Prince's ego though. I guess the Knights of Malta are the only "sovereignty" other than the Vatican that Monaco can boast of being bigger than .

Prince Albert is very noble here, he has an excellent profile like his mother had.
Thank you for posting the photos, Giov!

Interesting gift, indeed but it seems like a nice piece of art for decoration.
Thanks for the pics

Iceflower, your photos of PA are amazing, I like the fourth photo, where PA is going to kiss Pope's hand, smiling. It gives lots of positive emotions.

I read in other forum that the gift is a representation of Saint Devote. Is that true?

Yes, I think you are right about that, Nathalie Cox

Yesterday the annual "Oktoberfest" started in Monaco.
Prince Albert attended the opening, October 16, 2009
- what a difference there is between the two events
yesterday..

I think this chocolate jacket fit PA perfectly!
He looks like a true German, thanks to his mother, he has the german roots.
Thank you, Dear Iceflower!

Although all the pics look super you were right about the choc-latte jacket it looks mah-velous on PA in pic 2. The oktoberfest is a delightful time of year!
The season suts PA! Boys really enjoy their beer don't they!

The Sovereign Prince seems to be on the move alot and keeps a busy schedule. Perhaps the Holy Father gave him some tips on how to celebrate Oktoberfest the proper German way?

Although Pope Benedikt comes from Bavaria, the cradle of the
Oktoberfest, and got 80 bottles of beer on his 80th birthday, it is said
that he doesn't like beer that much, but a mixture with lemonade and
beer Nevertheless I'm quite sure that Albert told him about the start
of the celebration that same day..

Has anyone spotted PA at the Munich Oktoberfest yet?
He seems to turn up every year to visit a friend of his who owns a pub.
