Whilst there he inaugurated the Place Rainier de Monaco as well as attended the opening of the photo exhibition entitled, D’un Rocher à L’autre.

Yesterday, I tweeted that Their Serene Highnesses Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco’s interview with CBS This Morning would air on Tuesday, July 24, 2012. Well, here it is. 🙂

It seems that CBS had a change of heart regarding the interview with Their Serene Highnesses Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene.
This morning, July 25, the editors at CBS re-edited the interview with Holly Whatsherface by removing 1:35 minutes of the original video. Why? No idea. They also added a new ending. Again, I have no idea why CBS decided to change the original interview.
Here is the original interview.
