After the death of H.S.H. Princess Antoinette of Monaco on March 17, 2011, the Palais Princier de Monaco has announced that H.S.H. Prince Albert II and his fiancée, Charlene Wittstock, have decided to not attend this year’s Rose Ball.

The ball will go on which will, as always, raise money for the Princess Grace Foundation.
