"Oceans" Premiere in Monaco
HSH Prince Albert II, seen here with HRH Princess Astrid of Belgium, attended the world premiere of "Oceans" by French director Jacques Perrin in Monte Carlo. Longtime girlfriend Charlene Wittstock was also on hand with the Prince and Albert II took the occasion to present a special award to Perrin from the Prince Albert II Foundation. An auction was held earlier in the day to benefit the Sovereign Prince's namesake foundation which saw Albert II chatting with American actor Kevin Costner. Sotheby conducted the auction which saw the sale of 55 Bonelli eagle sculptures. It was all for the Eco-Art Parade 2009 which started in July by the Prince Albert II Foundation. The film "Oceans" aims to raise public awareness about the need for environmental protection for the worlds oceans.
