Hope Prince Albert trip is not cut short because of trouble in Lebanon's government. I think the prince was brave to visit at this time.

Prince Albert presented his wishes for 2011 to the police of Monaco at the Sûreté Publique,
Monaco, January 17, 2011. During the event Albert also received the crime statistics for
the year 2010 that states that Monaco was the safest country in the world.

Renata4711, here is a another link I've found quite interesting as to the better
view on the exhibits, I guess it may be interesting for you as well! :)

Today, PA is in the Ardèche region of France for the Rallye Monte-Carlo.

It is the Rallye's hundredth anniversary.

PA gave an interview to "Le Dauphiné" in which he described the RMC as a strong moment in the sports calendar of the Principality, even if it is no longer a part of the world championship. For this anniversary event, all fees have been waived. The participants are from 27 countries, the farthest from Australia and Barbados. PA took part in the RMC when he was still at school, and on about 15 occasions since then.

He certainly doesn't look fat; stocky yes, but not fat. He looks good. I don't think one can be much above "normal" size to fit in a bobsled.

Yesterday, Febuary 2nd, Prince Albert has visited in IMAGINA in Monaco.

Organized by INA (Institut National de l'Audiovisuel) from 31 January to 4 February in the
framework of the Monte Carlo Tevision Festival, Imagina expects to welcome 6,000 digital
audiovisual professionals presenting their latest creations and innovations in the field of
computer graphics, computer-generated animations, special effects for cinema and interactive
multimedia technologies.

Is that the book of all of Monaco's laws? Amazing! Even if it is just the business code it would make Americans deleriously happy.
Strangely, there is no more info about the handing out of the Codes Monégasques, not even in Monaco Télécom.

Yes, it includes the constitution, laws and regulations, also to distinguish it
from the French law I think.

On February 8, Prince Albert has received Mrs. Veronika Stabej, Ambassador
Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Slovenia who presented
her letters of credence at the Princely Palace.

has held the opening speech:

This is the "second edition" of this initiative spawned by FPA2 and the Institut Océanographique de Monaco. Its partner is Biomarine which, in turn, is partnered with the Thalocea Fund, a European Investment fund which obeys sharia law.

The Business Convention on marine bioresources is planning a biomarine business convention in September 2011 at Nantes and Saint-Nazaire (both in France). it will have over 2000 participants and 1000 companies.

Here are some pics of the second day, February 14, French Minister for Ecology,
Sustainable Development, Transport and Housing Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet
was present as well.

Albert's facial expressions are usually precious. Looking at his 'faces' one can imagine what's going on. At this conference with French minister in pics Albert is making faces again, but so does minister Morizet. So I wonder what's was going on at this conference. :ROFLMAO:

Prince Albert has attended the final run of the men's Bobsleigh World
Championship on February 20, 2011 in Königssee, Germany.
