Very nice photos, michelle. Thank you for posting them. :) Will Caroline and Ernst be in attendence as well?

michelle 01-15-2004 06:19 PM

I don't know if Ernst and Caroline plus their bunch will come around but I guess so. The Festival lasts one I think everyone will be there one day or another.

kittencrews 01-15-2004 06:26 PM

I'm so excited Caroline and Ernst usually attend with Alexandra!!

Alexandria 01-15-2004 06:36 PM

Is this considered an "official" engagement by Adans? Or is he simply accompanying his wife to this event?

Just a poster from the Circus

I was looking through pictures and website, and it looks like Caroline and crew don't usually come on the first day. Sometimes she hands out awards so hopefully she will be there later in the week

Do spouses of the females actually have offical duties? or is it just the wives of the males in line to the throne (or on the throne) and females in line?

Camille is soo cute... can't wait to see Alexandra (if they go) I haven't seen new pictures in a long time because she wasn't on the MND

I think Princess Caroline will attend during the weekend with Prince Ersnt and Princess Alexandra like they usually do every year. It would be cool if Charlotte attended the Circus after 3 years again.

Also I think that the Awards and Gala Night will be this Monday and the Circus will end the 22nd.

Great pics!!! Stephanie looks awesome. :woot:

Camille is a very beautiful and charming girl. I'm starting to see more of Princess Grace on her face. What does everyone think?

kittencrews 01-16-2004 12:28 AM

Yeah, that would be great if Charlotte attended again... but I'm not getting my hopes too high

Albert Opens Monaco Circus Festival in Rainier's Absence

16 JANUARY 2004
The first day of the Monaco International Circus Festival proved very much a family affair, despite the fact that Prince Rainier, the event's main patron, was unable to attend.

Prince Albert was accompanied by sister Princess Stephanie and niece Camille to the opening ceremony in Monte Carlo on Wednesday. His father was missing, however, and concerns over the 80-year-old's health will be fuelled by his absence.

The annual event is one of the most celebrated fixtures in the Monegasque social calendar. And royal-watchers noted that Stephanie brought along her new husband, Adans Lopez Peres, who she first met when he competed here with the Circus Knie.

The festival provides a showcase from some of the world's finest circus performers, who strut their stuff in the Espace Fontevieille big top.

Artists from countries as far flung as Canada and China come to show off their talents turning the principality into a hotbed of flying trapeze artists, trained white tigers and human cannonballs. Those lucky enough to attend the shows will see a who's-who of circus performers competing for the cherished Clown d'Ors prizes. Come next Tuesday, there will be a final Gala Awards show followed by a special winners' event on Thursday.

In previous years Cirque du Soleil and Circus Knie have been big winners and, needless to say, their renowned performers have returned in the hope of securing more acrobatic glory.

MONTE-CARLO, MONACO: Princesse Stephanie of Monaco, her husband Adans Lopes Peres ©, 30, an artist from "The Peres Brothers" from Portugal, and Prince Albert of Monaco, applaud 15 January 2004 during the 28th International festival of Circus in Monte-Carlo. Princess Stephanie and Adans Lopez Peres had a "quiet wedding" 12 September 2003 near the western Swiss city of Geneva where Lopez Perez was performing at the travelling circus Knie. Stephanie, 39, is nearly 10 years older than her 30-year-old groom. Before meeting him, Stephanie was linked to the boss of the circus, Franco Knie.

" Princess Stephanie of Monaco is welcomed by an unidentified clown"

Let's see if we can guess the name of the clown.

Binny 01-16-2004 05:00 PM

Camille reminds me a little of Drew Barrymore when she was in the movie E.T.


Dennism 01-16-2004 05:09 PM

Yes, Binny. She does look like Drew! Wow.

just woundering why isn't Adan sitting next to his wife? Carolines husband sit next to her...

paulette 01-17-2004 10:41 AM

Princess Stephanie's husband should have been seated at her side but nevertheless, maybe there wasn't no more chair in the front part so he has to seat at her back.
