If there is one thing people would say about the Princely family of Monaco… they are a generous bunch.
This afternoon in Monaco HSH Prince Albert and his sister, Princess Stephanie continued their annual tradition by handing out gifts to the citizens of Monaco. This time the recipients were the elderly Monégasques within the tiny Principality.
The gifts were distributed at the Red Cross Center in the heart of Monaco as well as at the Foyer Sainte Devote school.
Later on, HSH Prince Albert visited the Princess Grace Hospital to handout more presents to the patients.
Talk about lucky. Now, I want to move to Monaco, and receive cool free gifts from the Princely family! 🙂

On December 15, 2010, the Belgium royal family held a traditional Christmas concert as well as a reception at the royal palace in Brussels. Family members include: Their Majesties King Albert II, Queen Paola, Crown Prince Philippe, Crown Princess Mathilde, Princess Claire and her husband Prince Laurent, Princess Astrid and her husband Prince Lorentz, and finally Queen Fabiola.
Guests were treated to a lovely reception in the palace where they ate delicious Belgium hors d’oeuvres and a variety of drinks.

On a serious note, like his mother, The Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg, I like Prince Gui. He seems like a nice guy and from what I understand he is highly intelligent, compassionate, and of course… single (though he isn’t exactly my type.)
Perhaps in a future posting I will write up a short bio about this last heir to a throne in Europe named Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg.
