Pic #4 is just great. Many would disagree, but the man has charm.

In the photos of the IOC conference he looks very relaxed - nice to see.
But the football match is a different story......

I guess that one goal was hard-won, judged from the pic..


Here's a pic of Prince Albert and Rafael Nadal taken today, April 11,
during the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters 2011. The tournament takes
place from April 9th to 17th.

You know looking at the most recent pic of Prince Albert, it occurs to me that I've never seen him tanned in his life!?! Did he ever have a tan? A gift to the one whom can post a pic of Albert with a tan.

I mean I know I've seen tons of pics of he and the rest of the Grimaldis swimming and enjoying the water throughout the decades, but he (& his mother) never acquired a tan imho. Rainier, yes, Stephanie, yes, Caroline, yes, but Albert, no. Lol, maybe he's just like his baby niece, Princess Alexandra, not able to acquire a tan unlike the rest.

Whatever the case, he looks ghostly white next to Rafael Nadal, lol.

It's back to "the genes" again....
PA takes after his mother and grandparents, i.e. pale skin and a tendency towards red hair and freckles.
PC and PS, on the other hand, take after Princess Charlotte and the other dark-haired and dark-skinned beauties.

How about this one? He's not as tan as the girls, but he's not pasty either. I'm sure with the Winter Olympian crowd he fits right in.

Omg, can one actually fly one of those "Elektra One's" in Pic #2!?!

I'm wondering if those mini planes are like those mini "Smart Cars" that are good for the environment but awfully small, which imho makes them a tad dangerous. So therein lies the dilemma ~ environmentally friendly, but easily killed if one gets into a crash.

***UPDATE: yep, I was right, it's the equivalent of the "Smart Car": Elektra One Electric Plane Successfully Completes Maiden Flight | Inhabitat - Green Design Will Save the World ***

Oooh, the Smart Car is the last model I would purchase. They are a disaster waiting to happen. I must have my Buick! LOL

I don't doubt that the Elektra One can fly, but I'm wondering: how high? How much training would one need, do you need a pilot's license? Do you need oxygen, can one wear a business suit and high heels while flying it? So many questions. It is, for now, a gimmick.

What concerns me is not so much PA's liking for hybrid cars or similar, but the fact that he is wedded to his own aeroplane!

It's a tool. That's like saying that you're wedded to your car.
