Pics 23.12.2009

Prince Albert II of Monaco, Princess Caroline and her sons
Andrea and Pierre celebrate Christmas with the fishermen of
Monaco on one of their fish ships. They all ate sea urchins,
some of them opened by Prince Pierre. Monaco, December
23, 2009.

What a wonderful idea to honour the work of the fishermen
and such a nice informal event!

You are right it is a great idea! PA looks quite superb!

Is it possible to find urchin easily in Monaco?! Has anyone here ever had Urchin? It must have been a treat to spend the day with the fishermen they usually know all the best fish-y treats! Hoping the holidays are whuan-der-full for everyone!!

I liked photo no. 8, with PA laughing !!
A great idea, and a nice occasion for the Grimaldis to show their informal side.

On that day, there was also the presentation of the Monaco Olympic Team.

My fav are pic 1 & 7. They all turned out wonderful as all at the party seemed to be having a whuan-der-ful time!

Quite honestly, nothing beats a al fresco dining on a boat with good family & their friends for a truly enjoyable evening.

Those pics from fishing boat seem like stolen. Sometimes I love paparazzi.
It's great to see Grimaldis so privately. Hey, it's a good idea to spend time just before Christmas day this way, on real fishing boat. I like Albert's hat.

I like the hat too! it makes PA look quite elegante doesn't it??

Does anyone know ?why? they picked Urchins to eat ??

Is Urchins considered a 'delicacy"? or are they just plentiful out that way

Continuing the series of operas which the Grimaldis have enjoyed up to Christmas, there is another series, starting today (23rd) and continuing until the 31st, at the Salle Garnier.
Today's is a Gala performance which, no doubt, will see some Grimaldis enjoying "The Tales of Hoffmann" by Jacques Offenbach....

Great pics! Princess Caroline looks so chic in her outfit. I noticed you wrote January. Is it on January or February 4th, 2010? Thanks for the pics, Iceflower.

February of course, I'm sorry! No idea why I've lost a whole month
I'll edit that in the original post!

Me too, I liked her look a lot, especially in combination with the glasses.

No it did not, although one could think so: According to the
description of the exhibition (which is named "Mirrors of the
Magic Muse" and will run untill February 28) "Les plus belles
femmes du monde en photo à Monaco" (the most beautiful
woman of the world on pictures in Monaco) are shown.
The owner of the collection is Mr. Amedeo Turello.

The above-mentioned photographic exhibition consists of no less than three hundred images of women, arranged in chronological order, starting from the Thirties.

The event was organised by Monaco's Direction des Affaires Culturelles.

Amongst the most well-known photographers in the collection are Henri Cartier-Bresson and Edward Weston.

Marylin Monroe and Frida Kahlo are among the subjects photographed.

I came across this on my rounds of the world wide web today:
Quote:
Nice gig: Broadcaster Stephen Michael from Shorewood is headed to Monaco this weekend to co-host power boat racing's Union of International Motonautique World Champions Award Banquet. Among attendees expected are Prince Albert and the Monaco royal family as well as Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al Nahyan, who is ruler of the United Arab Emirates.
Does anyone now if this is recent? I checked, and it was published this morning, but I couldn't find anything about an upcoming banquet elsewhere. I might have to hit Google. It's great if it is coming up though!

Thanks for spotting that!

The Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM) is the international governing body of the sport of POWER BOATING, based in Monaco, and recognised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

The Award banquet is indeed today, the 6th.
This is the press release:
