Christmas Arrives in Monaco

Every year a group of Monegasque children are invited by the princely family to join them in distribution of Christmas presents. Prince Albert II, accompanied by his sisters Caroline and Stephanie, as well as by his fiancée Charlene Wittstock, handed out presents to the excited children. Ths is the first time that Ms Wittstock participate in a princely custom first organized by the late Princess Grace in 1956. Besides handing out presents at this function, which is celebrated inside the princely palace, Princess Grace also visited hospitals and organized the Monaco Christmas Soccer Tourney. It is nice to see that her children have continued their mother's traditions and that the newest member-to-be of the princely family has joined them with such delight and enthusiasm.
