PRINCE ALBERT II & PRINCESS CHARLENE OF MONACO VISIT NEW YORK CITY & TORONTO

Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco have recently visited New York City and Toronto, Canada to attend two functions associated with the late Princess Grace, mother of Prince Albert.  In New York, Albert and Charlene attended the 2011 Princess Grace Awards Gala at the Cipriani on November 1, 2011.  On November 2, the Prince and Princess were in Toronto, Ontario, Canada where they attended a reception for the grand opening of “Grace Kelly: From Movie Star to Princess” exhibition at the TIFF Bell Lightbox.  The Toronto exhibit includes special memorabilia from the life of Princess Grace during her days as a Hollywood movie star and as princess of Monaco.  Toronto will be the only North American city to host this special exhibit.  The exhibit will remain open to the public until January 22, 2012.  “She would have been deeply touched, I think, by the tribute that is paid to her,” Prince Albert said.  He also added that audiences will be able “to discover my mother beyond Princess Grace’s legendary image.”
