Prince Albert of Monaco and his girlfriend Charlene Wittstock celebrated her 31st birthday in Fresnaye on 25 January, reports Bunte, Germany’s leading society magazine.

The hoped for engagement did not happen.  Wittstock is believed to become the wife of Prince Albert.  The South African swimmer has been at the Prince’s side for three years, and has given up her swimming career for this.

The Prince’s party was disrupted by the police at 2 am, after neighbours in the suburb complained about the noise.

The magazine shows a photograph of the Prince’s friend’s house, high up in Fresnaye, and also a photograph of Clifton, which it says can be seen from the friend’s house, which is not possible, as Fresnaye and Clifton are about 2 km apart!
