Monaco E-Prix: Royal Presence

Prince Albert and Princess Charlene, together with their children Crown Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, attended Monaco E-Prix.

Prince Albert presented the trophy to the winner, driver Mitch Evans. As New Zealander Mitch Evans lives in Monaco it is a home win of sorts for the Principality. Meanwhile, the second-place finisher, Nick Cassidy, received his prize from Princess Charlene.

Many favourable comments from onlookers followed commenting on how great Princess Charlene looked and how the children are mega cute.

Princely Family inaugurate Miniature Monaco in Hamburg

Prince Albert II, Princess Charlene, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella inaugurated a miniature version of the Principality at Miniatur-Wunderland in Hamburg on 25 April. After six years of construction, the 70 square metre Monaco contains replicas of 300 buildings from the Principality at a scale of 1.87. Almost 40,000 metres of cables allow the 22-metre-long racing track to be run via special software that ensures that the outcome of the race is always different. Tiny cameras, one millimetre in width, are integrated along the track to transmit live footage of the miniature race. 1.4 million people visit Miniatur-Wunderland every year.

Accompanied by French Ambassador to Monaco, Jean dHaussonville, the Prince received honours from the vessel’s crew at the end of the tour. Based in Brest, Pégase has been in operation since 1985 and joined the NATO Task Group in the North Sea last year. Its mission is to detect, identify and clear mines and other explosive devices. Its crew of nearly 50 members include 10 women and six de-miner divers. Prince Albert II, who is a reserve ship captain in the French Navy, witnessed the divers in action and attended a demonstration of a ROUV (Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicle). After the presentation, the Sovereign and several members of Monaco’s government attended a reception organised by the crew and the French ambassador with authentic Breton specialities like savoury and sweet pancakes and cider.
