Prince Albert II of Monaco greets the crowd prior to attending the opening of the exhibition "La Normandie des Princes de Monaco" (The Normandy of the Monaco Princes) in the museum of the French western city of Saint-Lo on April 27, 2011. Albert II of Monaco bought for his Principality the statue "Le buste de la Marechale de Matignon", one of his ancestors, for the sum of 20.000 euros.

I still say Albert looks like he's lost between 5-10 pounds, he looks great, and HAPPY!

The town's name was originally "Saint Laud" after the Bishop of Coutances.

I've seen many articles as well, but meant the usual press coverage of the agencies we know here.

Albert II arrived in Brazil accompanied only by Colonel Philiponart.

It was his third time in São Paulo.

The visit adopted an informal tone.

In 1998 when he was in São Paulo with Rainier II, their entourage had 60 people.

Besides opening the exhibition in honor of his mother – Grace Kelly’s Years – at Museu de Arte Brasileira da Fundação Armando Álvares Penteado (Faap), he met the Governor of São Paulo, visited a Football (Soccer) Training Center and met some friends.

During his stay, he was escorted by the Federal Police (PF) of Brazil.

He stayed at the Tivoli São Paulo- Mofarrej Hotel (TIVOLI - Hotels &amp Resorts - O Hotel ). His suite occupies the entire 22nd floor and is 750 m ². It was decorated with pastel colored Colombian roses, his favorite flower.

The first thing in his schedule was a lunch with a friend with whom Albert studied at Harvard.

Then, his friend took him to the Training Center of São Paulo Football Club. Prince Albert chatted in French with some players and was impressed with all the trees that surround the place as the city of São Paulo is known for being a concrete and steel jungle. The Prince was friendly and not formal at all, even embracing São Paulo’s goal keeper, Rogerio Ceni, who gave him the team’s shirt.

Everybody tried to please the Prince, offering him all kinds of food but he tried to maintain his diet. At the football club facilities he only drank coconut water.

Later, the Prince went to the most exclusive Club in São Paulo, Harmonia, to play tennis.

The next day, for breakfast, he said he didn’t want any ham, sausages or .omelet; he ordered just tropical fruit and light sandwiches.

He paid an official vist to the Governor Geraldo Alckmin at Palácio dos Bandeirantes to discuss sustainability as Prince Albert is raising funds for the Foundation Albert II, dedicated to the environment. He was served coffe and “pão de queijo” (small round home made fresh cheese buns, a traditional Brazilian patisserie)

During his stay he also attended a lunch prepared by Chef Toninho Mariutti, a diner at the home of Celita Procopio de Carvalho, curator of Faap, and yet another diner for 120 guests in the mansion of banker Joseph Safra.

Well, he will have to keep his diet in Monaco - lol

Yes, an amazing report, with so much detail, even the name of the chef.....

As to dieting, I fear PA hasn't got a chance - he is a middle-aged man....

Such a pessimist you are, Renata4711.

I fear you are the type that sees the glass as half empty versus half full. I, OTOH, am the latter, thus I see PA regaining the figure he had as a youth (or almost).
