That IS A great surprise! And he looks really good too. :) Isn't his (King Juan Carlos) grandmother Albert's godmother? Or Albert's godmother was somehow related to King Juan Carlos, right?

I *think* it was the King's grandmother. But i'm not sure.
Victoria Eugenia de Battemberg is his grandmother...she is Juan Carlos' grandmother, right?

JC must be feeling better if was able to flight to Monaco.

Her Majesty Queen Victoria Eugenia passed away in 1969.

I quite like the photo of Prince Albert driving the King about

The question about Prince Albert's godparents seems to return monthly



Here's an additional article about the joined event today:



** Hola: El Rey realiza su primer viaje al extranjero tres semanas después de ser operado del tendón de Aquiles ** translation **


Prince Albert also attended the Only Watch charity auction of unique watches created by watch brands in Switzerland.
The event is held every two years in Monaco during the Monaco Yacht Show and is under the patronage of Prince Albert.

I've alluded to this in other posts but it really does seem that since Albert married Charlene the other European Royals ( I mean the big hitters not minor princes and ex-monarchs) seem really keen to be friends with the Monaco family. Even during Ranier's years on the throne, expect perhaps during the 1960's, Monaco seemed a bit distant from the others in the Royal "club" but not now. Personally I am thrilled about this as I love PA and PC so I am enjoying seeing them integrate with all the other major Royals and I hope in continues.

The turnaround started years ago. There have been comments on this board and others about how much travel PA does. It seemed that he was constantly on the road going to various events and areas. He is quite good at initializing and developing relationships.

Prince Rainier's mission was to put the principality in order (starting in the 1940s) by bringing in more revenue and getting infrastructure projects started and complete. PA is continuing this process and expanding it through his own projects. Also under PA's guidance in the past decade or so, I believe there have been more embassies and consulates set up on a reciprical basis than ever before. He has a multifaceted plan that he's implementing quite well.

Nice pics! Not sure about that striped shirt or pants though.....

Courtsey of the Royal Correspondent
Quote:
Prince Albert's foundation, The Prince Albert II Foundation developed the Wood Forever program. The purpose of this new venture “… aims to accompany the yacht builders towards the use of timber from sustainably managed forests.”

During the 2011 Monaco Yacht Show the famous yacht building company, Burger Boats, became the first official member of the Wood Forever program:

Burger signed a partnership agreement and committed to analyze their wood supply chain in order to be able to develop a sustainable wood purchasing policy and, doing so, fight deforestation.

His interpretation of a casual concert look maybe


Prince Albert has inaugurated an exhibition of art statues at the Parc des Oliviers in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin
on September 25, 2011.

Roquebrune-Cap-Martin is a French commune situated between Monaco and Menton on the Côte d'Azur.

Yesterday, the palace said that Prince Albert will make a speech for the defense of the environement at Evian and he will attend to the the gala of the evening which will finish this event. But the palace did not say that Charlene will attend to this gala, it spoke only about of the prince.

The Participation of H.S.H. Prince Albert II in the Forum “The Arctic: Territory of Dialogue” in Arkhangelsk
from Palais.mc
Quote:
The Prince will take part in the second international forum entitled “The Arctic: Territory of Dialogue”* to be held from 21st to 24th September 2011 in Arkhangelsk, in Russia.

On Thursday 22nd September 2011, the Prince will speak alongside Mr Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister of the Russian Federation and Mr Olafur Ragnar Grimsson, President of the Republic of Iceland.
This year, they will focus in particular on the subject of transport in this area.
This forum, organised by the Russian Geographical Society, will bring together representatives from the member countries of the Arctic Council, scientists and specialists in this region.
It will once again allow all these people to discuss the environmental and energy challenges of the Arctic and strengthen their cooperation.
* The Prince also spoke at this event in September 2010 in Moscow, where he was appointed as an honorary member of the Russian Geographical Society.
*Pic*
