Not sure where to post this but if you scroll to bottom of page, there's details of a summer ball on June 13th - although the link to the web site hasn't got much info at the moment. Is this an annual event? - it's quite close to The Red Cross Ball.

Bal de l'Ete Gala Evening

I think it's an annual event, but it's not an event of the Princely
Family like the Rose and the Red Cross Ball are :)

Prince Albert II of Monaco inaugurates a sculpture by Mexican sculptor
Javier Marin at Saint Martin garden in Monaco during the Monaco Sacred
Music Festival on 03 June 2009.

Javier Marin was born in Uruapan Michoacan, Mexico in 1962. Since 1983
he has presented more than 50 solo exhibitions and has participated in
more than 200 collectives exhibitions in Mexico, in the United States,
Canada, Central America, South America and various countries in Europe.

I always like to see any ties between Monaco and Mexico being maintained; they are often overlooked. Albert's grandfather, Prince Pierre, was half-Mexican if I remember right; so the Prince does have a little bit of Montezuma's blood in his veins ;).

You are right, Bones, he was of French and Mexican descent.

Nice pics! i like how he's dressed, and i like the fact he has too much interest in environment things:flowers:
Sometimes i think people should pay more attention to what he does for his country, rather than especulates when is he going to marry or not.

Their first humanitarian task was to help civilians during the war in Cambodia.

It is under the High Patronage of Prince Albert, and the charity evening took place at the Sporting Club Monte Carlo.

:hellokitty: Pa looks so exquisite in thaaat outfit and sooo streamlined!!! Loooved the tie!!!

:books:The children seemed so glad to see him these fairs are always such a good time for the children; if only the fun they have in preparing for it especially since it's such a good cause!

:books: that ecological fair seemed like it would have been a fun thing to attend.
:champagne:They did a great job on that dolphin!! super !!! :cheers::rose:
Albert did look very nice GS and I also enjoyed seeing and reading about this charity. It looked very interesting.:flowers: Nice photos at the Gala too.
The ecology festival is called MONACOLOGY - what a snappy title! - and runs from 5 - 9 June, 2009. The theme is "Sustainable Development" (développement durable).
This is the fifth time it's been running.

Monacology has its own website with a fetching image of Albert.

:flowers: Renata's pics of the monacology were exquisite but as always we love the close ups of PA TOO!! He looks so wonderful like he's getting more streamlined as of late. However, always exquisite. Bet that media festival must have been fun. It seems like a place where most everyone in the media considers it a treat just to get to go there for it!! :heartflower::champagne:
To Glistening Seas,
on reflection, the pic of PA is very charming, but I had great trouble averting my eyes from the dark-haired Adonis to PA's left! :)

:hellokitty: That's a novel institution and quite an interesting thing for PA to have and interest in creating such an institute.

:books:PA being a persons whose education, interests and hobbies, and businesses makes him a very well-rounded person quite healthy indeed.
:thistle:It's nice that he seeks to encourage the good qualities of self development for human and children. :champagne:
