Prince Albert of Monaco was joined tonight by his sister and niece for a very solemn event as he remembered those who lost their lives to AIDS.
The 64-year-old prince took part in the Quilt memorial ceremony at Monaco’s Oceanographic Museum, which paid tribute to the victims of the AIDS crisis on World AIDS Day.
His sister Princess Stephanie, 57, who founded the Fight AIDS Monaco association, attended the event, along with her daughter, Camille Gottlieb, 24.
The trio paid their respects to the victims of the AIDS crisis that hit the principality in the 1990s.
It comes as Stephanie’s son Louis Ducruet has announced that he and wife Marie are expecting their first child before 2023.
Meanwhile, Albert and Stephanie’s niece, Charlotte Casiraghi, has opened up about motherhood in the latest issue of Town and Country magazine.
