I am sorry to announce this dear friends, but Prince Alireza Pahlavi, son of HIM Empress Farah and the late Shah of Iran, has passed away today, January 4, 2011.
The Prince battled with depression over the years, and according to various sources, the 44 year old Prince committed suicide in Boston, Massachusetts:
…struggled for years to overcome his sorrow, he finally succumbed, and during the night of the 4th of January 2011, in his Boston residence, took his own life, plunging his family and friends into great sorrow.
My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

It’s been a pretty slow news day for royal watchers; though, I could go into an in-depth discussion about HRH Prince Henrik of Denmark’s unzipped pants during this past New Year’s Court… but I already mentioned/discussed it two days ago so I’ll spare you. LOL.
As a result, of this incredibly slow news day, I thought it would be a good idea to post various royal wedding videos since there is not much else to discuss until tomorrow.
While Prince Albert II of Monaco and his fiancée, Charlene Wittstock, are on holiday in Egypt, the French newspaper, Nice-Matin, decided that Miss Wittstock is their choice for the 2010 Personality of the Year.
Now, I can see why she was picked as the winner. More than ever, Miss Wittstock was in the public eye with her then boyfriend turned fiancé, HSH Prince Albert II. Moreover, I suppose it was her strong support to various charities in and out of Monaco that led the editors to choose Miss Wittstock as their chica of the year.
So, congratulations, Charlene! I’m sure you will win again next year.
