On December 15, 2010, HSH Prince Albert of Monaco along with his fiancée, Charlene Wittstock, attended the Arbre de Noel for the children in Monaco.  Also in attendance, of course, was HRH Princess Caroline of Hanover and HSH Princess Stephanie of Monaco.

The Arbre de Noel event is a tradition in the tiny principality, and the first time Miss Wittstock participated in the Christmas tree gift giving event.  After a quick photo-op in the courtyard of Palais du Monaco the guests were ushered inside to receive their gifts from the Princely family.   The guests cheered and screamed as Santa Claus entered the room, and the guests were more than happy to receive their presents.

After, the guests spoke with the Princely family and ate yummy food.  Again, many photos were taken and it seems that everyone enjoyed themselves.
