Prince Albert and Princess Charlene: World Travelers

In the recent weeks, Prince Albert and Princess Charlene have been traveling through out the world. I think they might be what one might consider "World Travelers"- in the few weeks, the newlywed Prince and Princess  first were spotted in mid-October attending the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand (and visited the Tasman Sea and with the Prime Minister of New Zealand), then jetted off to Nepal on official duty for one of Monaco's charitable organizations, returned to Monaco for a brief period (long enough to do laundry and grab some different clothes perhaps?), then jetted off again, this time to North America, where they visited New York, NY to attend the Princess Grace Foundation Gala and the princely couple traveled to Toronto, Canada to open the Grace Kelly: From Movie Star To Princess exhibit and attend the opening reception.

The Princely pair reportedly attended the finals match of the Rugby World Cup between France and New Zealand, in which France lost the match. After the match, Prince Albert attempted to visit the Soul Bar in Auckland, New Zealand with his wife, but could not get a reservation.

The Princely couple reportedly boarded their plane for their next leg of their travels, to the country of Nepal. Upon their arrival in Nepal, the princely couple will go to the village of Dhuseni to visit the school built by the "Monaco Aide et Présence" association, now classed as one of the ten best schools in this country. The Prince will then lay the foundation stones for new schools being built with the support of the 'NAMASTE' Association (Nepal-Monaco-Cultural-Association) in Salleri and Rigaon. After this, the princely couple traveled to visit a clinic  established by the 'ACFN' (Franco-Nepalese Cultural Association) and the craft workshop that provides training for women sponsored by 'NAMASTE', located in Gamrang.

This audience will be an opportunity to discuss Monegasque international cooperation actions in Mali, current economic relations between the two countries, the situation in sub-Saharan Africa as well as multilateral matters (Francophonie, United Nations...). This meeting will be followed by a working lunch at the Palace.

During his stay in the Principality, Mr Amadou Toumani Touré will visit the Oceanographic Museum and Galerie des Pêcheurs for the exhibition of photographs of development cooperation programmes in Mali supported by the government of Monaco in partnership with the Monegasque Red Cross and Prince Albert II Foundation.
