Their Serene Highnesses the Prince and Princess of Monaco recently paid a visit to the 'Prince Albert II Recreation Centre' to inspect the sports facilities and meet with the staff who run the establishment. During their visit the Princely couple were treated to a special show put on by the children who are being taught some important moral lessons, the theme of the show being on the rights of children in the world. Also in attendance were Mr. Paul Masseron, Government Councillor for the Interior, Ms. Isabelle Bonnal, Director of National Education, Youth and Sports, and Ms. Emmanuelle Farineau, Director of the Prince Albert II Recreation Centre.

According to an official release, the Prince Albert II Recreation Centre has a regular count of 200 to 300 Monegasque children, ranging in age from 3 to 12, during the holidays and around 100 children on Wednesday afternoons during the school year. The centre is administered by the National Education, Youth and Sports department of the Princely government of Monaco. The Prince and Princess spoke with the children, asking them about their activities and projects and probably answering a few of their questions in return. At that age, one can't help but wonder just how impressed the little ones are with meeting their Sovereign Prince. Still, it will be a memory to carry for the rest of their lives. And, of course, wherever Princess Charlene goes, she will have a special bond with any children present and this visit was no exception.
