Thank you for this!

The figure skating boards of which I am a part of are going crazy over YOG, and now to see how further committed Albert is to the Olympics is a sincere joy!

It's funny to remember when you see Prince Albert and Prince Phillip together that Alexandra of Hanover is PA's neice and also Prince Phillip's great neice.

Yes, now that you bring it up I find it interesting that they are related by marriage through little Princess Alexandra's father, Prince Ernst August, whose uncle married Prince Philip's sister. Ah, what a small world. :)

It's also good to know that Prince Albert II was there in honor of Prince Albert I, whom also made that long trek to the North Pole decades ago, as did his namesake back in 2006.

Brrrr, can she imagine how cold it was, especially now that I'm snowed in here in the PNW. *shivers*

My gosh I swear every day Albert is somewhere different, how many engagements does he do every year!?! It must be close to a 1,000, if not more!

I seriously don't know how he does it, besides being an active monarch, patronages, charities, and on & on. And he does it with a smile on his face at all times (lol still recall him singing along with that Elvis song at Crown Princess Viktoria's pre-wedding festivities).

Smush, I feel exhausted just thinking about the number of events that he attends.
Being in a few different countries in any given week is as common for Albert as going to the shops is for me.

I was thinking the same thing! His energy level must be amazing!

Last Friday, January 20, Prince Albert has been in St. Moritz, Switzerland. He had planned to participate
in the charity bobsled race "Historic Race", but it was cancelled due to the weather conditions.

"I've had a very enjoyable journey. I love travelling by train in wonderful Switzerland", he said. Asked where
Princess Charlene was, he smilingly replied she was in Milan shopping (see her current events thread). And
his secret recipe for a happy marriage: "You have to enjoy the shared experiences consciously, but do not
stick together. Everyone needs time alone or with friends. This understanding is very important".

And here's a short video with an interview about the cancelled race:
