INTRO
On November 19, at a lavish coronation ceremony attended by leading royals and heads of state from all over the world, Prince Albert completes his ascension to the Monegasque throne. The event comes four months after he was officially invested as the principality's sovereign ruler following the death of his enormously popular father Prince Rainier. As he looks to the road ahead the 47-year-old will be all too aware of the pressures he faces, not least the ever-present public interest in whether he will find his princess. But in years gone by he has more than proved his mettle when it comes to facing a challenge.

In this hellomagazine.com special report we get to know the man now in charge of the world's most glamorous location.
