On Thursday, March 10, 2022, His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco and Her Royal Highness Princess Caroline of Hanover attended the opening of the 11th Edition of the Rencontres Internationales Monaco et la Méditerranée (RIMM) conference held at the Musée Océanographique de Monaco.
This year’s conference focused on the islands of the eastern basin of the Mediterranean and the Tyrrhenian Sea.

On Tuesday, March 8, 2022, His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco received Letters of Credence from Ambassadors representing Australia, Egypt, Hungary, and Ukraine at the Palais Princier de Monaco.
So, last night I posted a link to a news report/panel discussion about H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock. Well, here is the same program, C Dans L’air, which airs on the French television network, France 5. This time the panel discusses the princely family of Monaco.
Well, according to the journalist Simon Perry who writes for the American magazine, People, it is true. It is totally and utterly true that H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco and his beautiful fiancée, Charlene, will attend the upcoming British royal wedding on April 29, 2011.
Are you not uber-excited?!!!
I am… 🙂 lol

For those of you who were waiting ever so patiently to gaze upon the official website for the upcoming princely wedding in Monaco, well, you are in luck.
Today, you can finally breathe a sigh of relief and then scream like a teenager at a Justin Bieber concert because the website is officially up and running complete with H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco and Miss Charlene Wittstock’s giant monogram plastered all over the site.
Well… actually it’s only on the left hand side, but whatever.
Any way, the site contains all the important information for you to know. For example:
The dates for the civil and religious ceremony
Information about Monaco
Details about the Princely wedding
A bio about the Prince and Miss Wittstock (who apparently loves to surf like yours truly… though I have a feeling Charlene sucks at it.)
Useful information (like how to get to Monaco and we all know how important that is.)
Lots of pretty pictures
Overall, the site is quite nice looking; moreover, it is nice to see that someone at the Palais Princier de Monaco FINALLY realized the correct title of the wedding. For some time now, the official tourism website for Monaco, Visit Monaco, and some dude who works at the Palais Princier de Monaco, kept referring the upcoming wedding as a royal wedding. It’s not. It’s a princelywedding. So, congrats to Visit Monaco and the underpaid Palais Princier de Monaco employee dude who finally realized their past mistake.
The French newspaper, Nice-Matin, is reporting that His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI will visit the Principality of Monaco sometime in 2012. Now the Riviera Times has picked up on the story though they remain skeptical.
Per the Riviera Times:
Although the date that the religious leader will land in the Principality is still not officially set in stone yet, Archbishop Bernard César Barsi has revealed that he will celebrate a Catholic Solemn Mass in the Stade Louis II. It’s estimated that around 22,000 faithful followers will fill the stadium to worship with and to see in person the German-born head of the Catholic Church.
Ahead of this mass, it is planned for the Bishop of Rome, to pay a visit to the palace, the official residence of the Prince of Monaco, and to then join local cardinals at the Principality’s cathedral.
Yesterday, March 5, 2011, HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco attended the grand opening of the Art of Olympians museum in Fort Myers, Florida. This black tie event brought out some of the world’s most famous athletes as well as local politicians. Noticeably absent from Prince Albert’s side, his fiancée, Charlene Wittstock. It is unknown why she did not accompany her fiancé to Florida; however, I am going to assume that she is back home in Monaco prepping for their upcoming wedding in July.
