Please note that the Monaco moderators have opened a new Current Events thread for Albert and Charlene, which can be found here http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/f13/prince-albert-monaco-charlene-wittstock-current-events-part-1-a-13185.html .

In the future, please posts all pictures, articles, and comments about events where they BOTH attend to the new current events thread. In regards to their separate current events thread, it should be used to post events that only pertain to them as Charlene or Albert NOT Charlene and Albert.

Thank you.

I guess that will be up to Albert. His sister Caroline choose to keep it low key and if she had one at all it was just family. She kept to her schedule presenting a speech before I believe the Belgium (?) Parliment on childrens' issues and when asked what she was doing for her birthday is said to have commented something to the effect of hopefully doing something useful.

I don't think that anything will be done, except private and there will be an official present from parliament and mayor/monegasques. Besides who would come. Most royals send their B and C list, others didn't show at all for the ascension, whom would they send for the birthday? Their valets and chambermaids? As long as Albert doesn't work on his reputation and show himself as a respectable man, I doubt that anyone would be interested to come to any event. I doubt that even if he organized a wedding that there would be A list royals showing. Not with his reputation and history.

When was the last time an A list royal came to Monaco and for what occasion?

I'm prety sure he's wearing a traditional Cuban shirt called a "guayabera". He looks funny, but maybe that's because I think guayabera and the first thing that comes to mind are all the old Cuban men in Miami (including my grandfather) that wear them everyday.

That would be Rainier's funeral as he was well respected. Also Princess Diana came to Grace's funeral.

When /if a wedding is coming, perhaps it won't happen for a long time and he will have done his job...:lol:

If by A list you mean other reigning European monarchs, wellthey generally do not attend the enthronement ceremonies of other monarchs. Check out the guests at Elizabeth II coronation...no reigning monarchs in attendance with the exception of colonial kings/sultans/chiefs from the then British Empire. European monarchs were represented by other members of their family. Greece for example sent Prince George and Princess Marie. Interestingly she was bored by the whole thing and offered to psychoanalyse the man sitting beside her....Francois Mitterand representing the French government.

Thank you for adding that information as it clearly separates out enthronement ceremonies from funerals as to protocol. paca does make a good point about respect. Albert is viewed as a light weight and photos of his partying and flying around with Charlene do not help this image. I realize one can not control the press but he needs to be seen as doing his job at home not just a man of the photo op as he is being portrayed. In fairness it is difficult to change one's image but he has got to start doing something about it or else all the protocol in the world won't save him from what we are currently seeing. He has a good PR woman in place but if he doesn't listen to her what good can she do? The party shots with girls have to go away for a while it over shadows everything else but that's JMO.

On Wednesday, 11 July 2007, Prince Albert honored two more Ambassadors to Monaco. These two additional ambassadors increase the total to 23 counties who now have accredited Ambassadors representing Monaco.

Malta Ambassador
In the early morning of Wednesday 11th July in the Prince’s Palace, the ceremony took place in which H.E. Mrs Victoria Ann Cremona, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Malta handed over her letters of credence.
Here’s the link to the article.

El Salvador Ambassador
In the late morning of Wednesday 11th July in the Prince’s Palace, the ceremony took place in which H.E. Mr Joaquim Rodezno Munguia, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of El Salvador handed over his letters of credence.

Here’s the link to the article.

I didn’t see this event listed in Albert’s thread. Here’s a Monaco Times article about an event that Prince Albert attended last month 12 June 2007. Also, here’s a link to 257 pictures of the event. Prince Albert is in a lot of them. There are some nice ones on pages 3 and 4.

The 15th anniversary of the Riviera-Côte d’Azur Zeitung and fifth anniversary of The Riviera Times drew well over 400 specially invited guests to a party held on the Fairmont Hotel’s beautiful outdoor terrace in Monaco.

he does look good in the photos, it looks like he's lost alot of weight and looks much better in his suits. he was beginning to look like one of those fat cats in washington, bloated from too much rich food and champagne.

They should give the palace photographer a new camera and/or a short course in proper digital picture resizing. Those pics are awful! :ohmy:
