TSH Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco went on a visit to the Kingdom of Norway and on Monday were in Kautokeino where they donned native clothes and took a reindeer sleigh ride through the pristine countryside. Later the Sovereign Prince presented a scholarship to students studying Russian and Mongolian reindeer herding. The Princely couple met with leaders from the University of the Arctic, the Finnish Sami Reinders’ Association, the NGO Finnish Sami Youth, the Youth Council of the Sami Parliamant of Finland, the Association of World Reindeer Herders and the Upper Secondary and National Reindeer Herding Scholl. Yesterday, Prince Albert II spoke at the 2012 World Indigenous Television Broadcasting Conference in Norway on the subject of "Arctic Change, Indigenous Youth and Future Opportunities".
Still keeping to the trend of activities involving ice, the Prince then dashed back to the south of France where he teamed up with TRH Princess Caroline and Princess Alexandra to take in the 2012 World Figure skating Championships.
