On Thursday, April 3 2014, 7 pm, Princess Caroline of Monaco appeared fully recovered from her knee surgery and absolutely happy in Monaco.
The event was about her grandfather, a lecture titled ‘Albert 1er in Films.’ Prince Albert I was a statesman but the lecture also presented his films, made by the Prince himself from 1897 to the First World War. They were screened for more than an hour in front of an exultant Princess Caroline of Monaco.
The event was chaired by Prince Albert II. Andrea Casiraghi, third in line of succession to the Monegasque throne, accompanied his uncle and his mother.
These exceptional and unpublished documents belong to the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco and to the Archives of the Princely Palace- They have been restored through a partnership with the Audiovisual Archives of Monaco and the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
Five months of work were needed to revive these wax coils and cylinders and sublimate their original appearance.
The motion pictures were informed by readings, musical evocations and historical comments. Phonographic recordings, voice and music, also made by the Prince Albert I in 1899, were also broadcast.
The cultural event was absolutely interesting but people was also happy seeing her princess in so good shape.
Good time for Princess Caroline of Monaco! The religious wedding of her son Andrea Casiraghi and Tatiana, the happiness of her daughter Charlotte and Pierre, and the birth of his two grandchildren, Sasha and Raphael, have brought fresh air to her life.
Back in the Principality, the Princess returned to her most beloved places. That now, she shares with her children and grandchildren. The center is Le Clos Saint-Pierre, a Belle Epoque style villa hidden behind a stone wall and magnolias. The villa was a gift from her father Prince Rainier before her wedding.
Congratulations, Monaco. Great spring!
