Prince of Monaco in London
HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco and girlfriend Charlene Wittstock are in London to attend the opening of the "Princess Grace: Style Icon" exhibit at the Albert and Victoria Museum in London. Set for tomorrow the Sovereign Prince arrived early for a little royal preview and was welcomed by Their Royal Highnesses the Earl and Countess of Wessex. The exhibit will show off some of what made the late Princess Grace so famous for her style and taste with an assortment of dresses, handbags, gloves, shoes, pearls and other jewelry and so on. Also on hand for the star-studded event was Joan Collins, Erin O'Connor and Ringo Starr. Pieces of the exhibit are arranged to show the stylistic changes that went through the life of Princess Grace from her time as a Hollywood movie star, a blushing bride and finally a Princess consort of Monaco. Some 40 gowns owned by the late Princess will be displayed including those which were part of her costume wardrobe from such famous films as Rear Window and High Society (one of my favorites). The exhibit will be open until September 26.
