HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco and HSH Princess Stephanie of Monaco attend the Opening Ceremony of the 35th International Circus Festival

This evening in lovely, yet tiny, Monaco HSH Prince Albert and his sister Princess Stephanie of Monaco attended the opening ceremony of the 35th Annual International Circus Festival in Monte Carlo.

Surrounded by creepy ass clowns and a billion photographers Prince Albert and Princess Stephanie smiled and laughed as they made their way through the arena.

Oh, I almost forgot… Princess Stephanie’s daughter, Pauline, was also in attendance to support her mother who is the President of the Circus Festival. Unfortunately, once again,  Prince Albert’s fiancée was nowhere to be found.  It’s been a long ass time since royal watchers were able to gaze upon her loveliness in still photos as well as videos.  Who knows where or what she is doing (perhaps prepping for the upcoming princely wedding); nevertheless, I hope we will see her soon.

HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco attends the Monte Carlo Rally

On January 19, 2011, HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco was in Saint Bonnet le Froid to attend the opening of

… a special of the centenary Monte Carlo rally.  Formerly part of the WRC circuit the event which was first won by Frenchman Henri Rougier in a Turcat-Mery back in 1911, is now on the rival breakaway IRC circuit.

Sounds like fun and by the looks of it, HSH Prince Albert looks as if he is freezing to death.
