I agree, but the other Protectors are not Spanish either and to some extent I think the SRF have kept their distance from the Spanish aristocracy since returning to the throne in 1975. Albert II is certainly the most high profile of the current group of protectors.

What exactly is a Royal Protector of the Corps of the Asturian Nobility? I think that Queen Sophia is Alberts godmother, does this have anything to do with the appointment?

Prince Albert's godmother was HM Queen Victoria Eugenie of Spain, grandmother of King Juan Carlos. Sofia was still just a Greek princess when Albert was born in 1958.
Not sure if there is any real role here. If you look at the other protectors they include the Duke of Braganza, a Prussian prince, an Austrian Archduke and the Prince of Naples.

I wonder if this is Prince Albert's first meeting with François Hollande?

It's been the first official meeting since François Hollande's installation, but it's of course possible that they met before..

Was Charlene at any of these events? I dont see her in any pics. You would think she would be at the Christmas Ball.

No, she was not. If she had been at the mentioned events, I would not have posted the pics and information at Prince Albert's current events thread

Joint events are covered at their joint current events thread or at the family's current events thread.

Must have been a pretty small event if it only raised 40,000 euros which is a drop in the bucket by Monagasque standards for a fundraising events.
