Princess Clotilde of Venice and Piedmont Attends a Fashion Show in Paris

On March 3, 2011, Princess Clotilde of Venice and Piedmont attended a fashion show in Paris, France along with other fashion writers, bloggers, and buyers.  The venue:  The Grand Hotel.  The Show:  Balmain.

Like Princess Tatiana of Greece, the former actress turned Princess, Clotilde’s position as a princess is pretty much useless (the Venice and Piedmont house are non-reigning in Italy.)  So, yeah… basically she doesn’t really do anything unless of course one considers attending fashion shows and cocktail parties a job.  However, I will say that she seems to be a very kind person.  Why?  Well, she along with her husband, Prince Emanuele Filiberto decided to adopt two Kenyan orphans… financially that is.  You see, the couple will take care of these two orphans by taking care of them monetarily until they are of age.  The children will remain in Kenya while Clotilde and Emanuele will live a billion miles away and perhaps visit every so often.

HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco Attends the Grand Opening of the Art of Olympians Museum

Yesterday, March 5, 2011, HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco attended the grand opening of the Art of Olympians museum in Fort Myers, Florida.  This black tie event brought out some of the world’s most famous athletes as well as local politicians.  Noticeably absent from Prince Albert’s side, his fiancée, Charlene Wittstock.  It is unknown why she did not accompany her fiancé to Florida; however, I am going to assume that she is back home in Monaco prepping for their upcoming wedding in July.
