It's easy to travel when you have your own private jet.

Post IOC seeks clarification, Palace denies.

When googling info about prince Albert this is what's popping up:
The Chosun Ilbo (English Edition): Daily News from Korea - Albert of Monaco 'Took Bribes to Hand Olympics to Russia'

AFP: IOC seeks clarification from Monaco on Sochi claim


Royal Palace denies IOC breach by Prince Albert II

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/16/sp...fs-prince.html

Making long story short:
Prince Albert's former spy, Robert Eringer, is suing Monaco & Albert in US court over money he says prince did not pay him for services. Recently Eringer sent a letter to Inter. Olympic Committee (OIC) alleging that Russia bribed Albert so he as the OIC member would support Russian bid for winter Olympics in 2014. Russia won bid for Winter Olympics & 2014 Winter Olympics will be in Sochi.
Couple facts: Prince Albert did receive a dacha from Russians; he went on trip with Putin, Russians helped organize his trip to North Pole in 2006. All this happened before Sochi was approved for Olympics.

Palace denies all these allegations, for the datcha, Eringer said this without prooves.Before saying all these things, proove this or in France, we know this man, he is a fool who wants publiccity around him and his site. But on this forum, I thought that rumors or false allegations were not published

This one will run ...... and run..... and run... until Eringer gets tired of it - but when ??

As to TRF, we don't know who is right - Eringer or Albert - and it will take a long time before this matter is resolved. This forum only cites news items.

These are news site links, that's okay, melina premiere.


Prince Albert attended the inauguration of the Café Llorca Monaco at the
Grimaldi forum, yesterday, December 15, 2010. The view is fantastic (pic
3), only the interior looks a bit dark for a café (pic 4).

I think this Eringer guy is a nutcase. PA could have just as easily gone to the North Pole through Alaska, Canada, the Scandanavian countries, Greenland or Iceland. The article also failed to mention that PA is countersuing Eringer in the California courts for slander.

I wonder what either of those two gentlemen are likely to get out of these protracted and expensive court proceedings.
My guess is that the christmas season is a good time to get publicity.

I'm surprised any media would take this guy seriously. He says Albert took bribes for the Olympics......okay, but he also says Albert has mob ties, terrorist ties, and on and on. He accuses the Prince of something every day, every accusation worse than the last. So, what news outlet would take the guy seriously at this point? He's slandered Prince Albert, his children, his lawyer and pretty much anyone who says one nice thing about the Prince. There have been, as probably everyone knows, lots of rumors and accusations about corruption in the IOC (and pretty much every other sports organization these days) but Eringer has, by his own efforts, ensured that he has 'zero' credibility, is clearly just a phony looking for money and attention and not to be taken seriously.

The "Albert took bribes" scenario is particularly lacking in credibility - PA has got enough resources and does not need to accept bribes !!

Exactly so. What could anyone offer Prince Albert (in terms of that which money can buy) that he does not already have? I'm just rather at a loss that this accusation makes the news when Eringer is making accusations (even much worse ones) every single day. Besides which, a quick google search shows that the guy is a long-time member of the 'tin foil hat brigade' best known amongst the conspiracy theorist community, featured on small-time internet and radio talk shows that deal with the Masons, Illuminati, staged moon landings and the like.

Well, then it must be the publicity that Eringer craves. I guess he must be fairly certain that PA won't be in too much of a hurry to proceed with the action.
PA would not want the run-up to the wedding spoilt by irritating Eringer interruptions.

It seems we won't see Albert taking his cooling bath in the Mediterranean Sea this year.
I can't remember any pics from 2007, but in 2006 and 2008 he participated in the Christmas
bath, in 2009 even together with Pierre and Charlene. This year's edition (as always organized
to benefit the Thai Tatsa association for children victims of the 2004 tsunami) has taken
place yesterday, December 19, but no signs of Prince Albert on the following and other pics.

So this time no funny pics of Santa Albert

This year, we have a weather very cold, it snowed a lot on the France until the coast of the sea. Yesterday, I visited my mother who lived on the coast and it was very cold,I thought that the christmas bath was canceled.

Well, obviously it has taken place, maybe Albert felt it was too cold for him..


On December 17, Prince Albert attended the traditional year-end cocktail
reception of Monaco's Yacht Club. Albert as President of the YCM, has
inducted new members and handed out the YCM Awards 2010.

Yacht Club de Monaco: Apart from giving out awards, PA also stressed in his speech the importance of the yachting industry for the Monegasque economy, finance and employment, mainly through boatbuilders and designers, principal brokers, prestigious brands, and yachting professionals.

He made reference to the developments at Port Hercule which could promote the expertise of Monaco in that field, and he expressed the wish for the Principality to affirm itself as the "Capitale du Yachting".

Does anyone know if there is a recording of the Prince's Christmas address on-line anywhere? Has he ever given the message on TV? Gracious, for a country trying to be so "hip" as Monaco they really ought to have their own YouTube channel. The British, Dutch & Norwegians do... I mean, for a Sovereign Prince so trendy and hi-tech it seems odd that his Christmas message is on the radio.

I think Albert does his address to the nation on new years. There was a clip of a prior year on You Tube,
