We cannot say that they are above ground. It is indeed leaning towards the asphalt that Prince Albert II and his children Jacques and Gabriella were seen this weekend. In an Instagram post dated Saturday, September 16, and shared by the Princely Palace of Monaco, the trio, who joined an ecological awareness mission, collected waste for several hours to clean up the city. The World Clean Up Day association organized a day of garbage collection, in which several hundred Monegasques participated.

Setting a good example
In the streets of Monaco, a compact crowd followed the steady pace of the princely family collecting waste, while all over the world, from 13 to 17 September, clean-up operations were organized, as part of this ecological mission. The twins Jacques and Gabriella, garbage bags in hand, participated for an afternoon in a garbage collection operation.
Cigarette butts, soda cans, papers of all kinds... Nothing seemed to escape them. Concentrated faces, matching outfits, the children magnetized the cameras and flashes throughout the operation. With white caps, blue tops and white shoes, they were both dressed in some sort of cleaning uniform. Given their conscientious and amused faces, the mission seemed to be a great success.

Prince Albert's Second Nature
This action to protect nature was important to Prince Albert II. The monarch, who has often spoken about ecology, was able to demonstrate the authenticity of his commitment. For several years, he has been urging his fellow citizens to respect the environment. He explained in 2022 to Here: "We must encourage, be persuasive to show that [ecology is] the only possible way".
An ecological fiber that earned him some apprehensions about the challenges faced by his heirs, born in 2014. "I fear, unfortunately, that they will still be forced for several generations to fight to save what can be saved on our planet," he said of the fight that will fall to future generations.
