H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco Attends a Soccer Match

On August 26, 2011, H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco attended a soccer (football) match between FC Barcelona and FC Porto at the Stade Louis II in Monaco.  The sovereign prince enjoyed the match not with his lovely wife, H.S.H. Princess Charlene, but with UEFA president, Michel Platini.  Throughout the game the two friends cheered on their favorite team, giggled, and generally had a fabulous time.

Anyway, those who attended the match were wondering why the princess was not there; furthermore, many had also noticed that Prince Albert wasn’t wearing his wedding ring!

Actually, it’s not big deal that the prince decided not to wear his wedding ring.  Most men remove it from time to time… so it’s not unusual.
