Indeed-y PA smile is one of the best things about PA. he seems to have his mothers & fathers sense of humor they all do a sense of fun that isn't usually seen as part of the royal mystique

With so many people who sound alarm bells about the environment at the same time making hefty profits through fears of climate change it is always refreshing to see Prince Albert speak about the subject since he has actually gone himself to the polar regions, studied the situation up close and has been generous in putting his money where his mouth is when speaking on the subject of global climate change. Kudos to him!

There's an article on the Palace website about his trip to NYC and his participation at a press conference of the Arctic commission of the Aspen Institute:

Palais de S.A.S. le Prince de Monaco - Voyage officiel de S.A.S. le Prince Albert II de Monaco aux Etats-Unis

His message was again the fragile polar regions.
"Nous n'avons pas de choix" - We don't have a choice.......

More coverage of PA at the UN on Monaco Matin:
Monaco.maville.com Albert II Ã* l'ONU : « Tirer les leçons de cette sombre année »

Main themes:

Monaco will give 0.7% of its GDP to development.

Everyone needs to learn lessons from "cette sombre année", and the monetary and financial systems must be reformed.

There is the opportunity for a "green economy" which associates job creation and dissemination of new technologies, and allows a sustainable recovery.

Monaco will continue to adopt best practice in protection, international assistance, strengthening of capacity to save human lives, responding to urgent humanitarian situations, especially regarding women and children.

While PA was getting ready to address the UN on Wednesday, the Monegasque delegation learnt that Monaco was no longer officially a tax haven.

The OECD website confirmed that Monaco had left the "Grey List" in favour of the "White List". Just in time for the Pittsburgh Summit.

Pics 24.9.2009

Prince Albert is back in Monaco again, the annual Yacht Show
was opened today and here are the first pics, but hopefully
we'll get some better ones soon:

Prince Albert of Monaco inaugurates the 19th Monaco Yacht Show,
September 24, 2009.
The Monaco Yacht Show brings together professionals from the
international luxury yachting sector; ship-builders and designers,
equipment suppliers, brokers and service providers. The MYS is
renowned throughout the sector for being the show that must
not be missed in the luxury yachting sector because it is the only
yacht show exclusively devoted to Superyachts of at least 25
meters in length.

Nice to see him back.
He looks so powerful walking onto that yacht with the meg-yachts behind him.

Albert again in Monaco? That was fast... He travels with a speed-light.
In pics from U.N. session his face looks slimmer then in pics from yacht show. Noway he changed weght so fast, must be light or something.

iceflower, pic #4 from yacht show is priceless, even a prince takes his shoes off.

Something about Albert from google.com:
Breaking News, Kenya, Africa, Politics, Business, Sports, Blogs, Photos, Videos*- Prince Albert of Monaco set to grace Peace Races
He will be in Kenya on Nov. 14th...

PA about Monaco being "white", rather than grey:
(translated from French)
"I learnt about it only 15 minutes before speaking to the UN. It was a joy for me to be able to tell the audience, in front of the world's leaders assembled there. I've had to change my speech at the last minute. We wanted to get off the grey list before the end of the year, that was an important objective for the Principality, we got off it even faster, before the G20.....
....We'll continue to negotiate treaties with other countries. Monaco will maintain its place in keeping up this new moral framework of good governance in the world of finance.....

PA's right hand man Franck Biancheri added that, apart from the twelve accords, he is negotiating with Germany, Australia, India and the Netherlands.
Sadly, he already has his detractors who try to declare the accords as "worthless"....

Iceflower, your last photos of PA are great!
Prince Albert looks young and fit and neat!
There is a good mood and the sun, what else does need for happiness?

He must have left right after his address at the U.N. because, as I recall it, his address came on at 3 PM New York time which means 9PM or 10PM Monaco time.
