Uh.... where is Charlene?! They're newlyweds and she's not attending events with her husband. This marriage just gets more and more odd and like an arranged marriage every day. Are the people of Monaco actually warming to there absent princess?

PA announced years ago that the princess of Monaco would not necessarily be active in official affairs. Keeping this in mind, I think she's doing an admirable job.
Uh no... but I can't imagine Diana not being there to welcome important guests just after she'd married Charles. If they are business visits then I can understand her being absent but she seems to be absent quite a bit.
Not quite comparable since Charles wasn't the head of state, although I am pretty sure he met with lots of people without his wife being present. QE2 receives ambassadors without the DofE being there to hold her purse.
Back to Prince Albert's current events:

He attended the Jean Roch Concert at the Grimaldi Forum as part of the 'MICS Monaco International
Clubbing Show" in Monaco on November 10, Jean Roch is the gentleman on the right.

Ah, haven't seen pics of Albert (nor the family) since the beautiful wedding this past summer. Seems like ages ago!

And on that note, Albert looks wonderful, married life sure seems to be agreeing with him ~ he's lost weight and is glowing. :heart:

I just love these photos of the siblings visiting the elderly! :) First Princess Caroline on December 13th (btw I cried when I saw the photo where she sat down to have lunch with the two ladies in the hospital bed), then Princess Stephanie on December 15 at another hospital, and now Prince Albert here. :)

It's amazing how close this family is despite some that try their hardest to tear them apart. Never. They are one. Their parents taught them well. BRAVO! :)

On December 15 Prince Albert attended the annual charity auction sale of Christmas Trees
for the benefit of the "Action Innocence" charity association at the Hotel de Paris in Monaco.

Geeze, Albert is really brave, especially at his age. Seriously, one can literally catch their "death of cold" by taking the plunge in such chilly weather.

But considering his new & improved physique I suppose it doesn't matter too much , as long as one is healthy they should be able to stave off illness. :flowers:

BRAVO, Albert! :cool:
LOL, too cold for me :lol:
I wonder why Charlene didn't attend this year :cool:
Perhaps she was on her way back from Berlin.
:lol: That's what I thought too, it must have slipped my mind.
I could never do this- It would take me a YEAR to warm back up again! Bravo for Prince Albert!

Prince Albert attended the presentation of the film that was made about Monaco's participation at this
year's Chelsea Flower Show in London, at the Princess Grace Theatre in Monaco on December 20, 2011.

The other gentleman is Roger Shine, a close friend of Albert, who got the idea of the Monaco/Chelsea garden.
