Thank you Nathalie for the article but I don't understand very much
It's about port wine? Can you translate a bit?

Yup, sorry i didn't have the time to translate it, lol.
I don't understand too much, as it's in portuguese, but it seems that the three went to Portugal for a enthronization ceremony in which they would be honorary members of some Wine brotherhood/community. After that, Albert and Charlene will go to a private lunch with the foreign minister George Sandeman in Caves Ramos Pinto.

Thanks for the translation.
I had no idea Pierre was that tall. He must be at least 1,90m - 1,95m.

Yes, i always suspected Pierre has to be 1,90 m. He is a little bit taller than Andrea, who is a little bit taller than Albert.

It's the brotherhood of Port Wine (a sweet, fortified wine produced in the oldest defined wine region in the world, the Douro Valley, in Northern Portugal).
After the entronization ceremony in Porto, they had lunch in Ramos Pinto's wine case, in Vila Nova de Gaia. George Sandeman is not minister; he's just the Chairman of Sandeman wine company and chanceller of the Port Wine Brotherhood.

People who attended the dinner enhanced the Princes' informality, and seemed well impressed with that.



BTW - The patron of the Port Wine Brotherhood is Prince Henry the Navigator and the hat worn by the confrères is inspired by the one worn by this Prince, who was an important figure in the Portuguese overseas exploration

The pictures are great. This is a serious business. It reminds me of university graduation (minus the cool hats).

Prince Albert, Elisabeth-Anne de Massy and Mélanie attended a charity dinner organised by the Prince Albert II
of Monaco Foundation and the William J. Clinton Foundation at Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo on May 23, 2012.
Bill Clinton was therefore present as well.

I hope it was a better party than the one for Clinton in London last night. Guests called it the worst party ever.
