HSH Prince Albert and Princess Charlene gave Christmas gifts to 600 young Monegasques at the Palace on Wednesday afternoon. This year the annual occasion was very special, with two year-old twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, also assisting in the happy event.
The last few days have been particularly busy for the Prince and Princess. Prince Albert was in North America, where the high point of his visit was an address to the American Geophysical Union at its autumn meeting in San Francisco, during which he emphasised the importance of recognising the reality of climate change.
Meanwhile, Princess Charlene had a busy schedule in India at the weekend, where on the sidelines of a summit focussed on children’s rights, she took the time to visit rural families hit by the AIDS crisis.
The E-Rally Monte-Carlo held later this year will take place around the Principality of Monaco, with a new route through the Alpes-Maritimes and the Var.
AS Monaco publicly presented its new sporting director, Paul Mitchell, this week to discuss his goals for the Red and Whites and to be formally welcomed by the club.
The ‘Monaco Plage Propre’ operation has kicked into gear, giving smokers no reason to butt out on the Principality’s coastline.
Hermitage Fine Art is hosting two days of public auctions this week featuring Russian art, objects of vertu, manuscripts, rare books and photographs.
