Newlyweds - Fabulous Ball Guest Prince Albert

Monaco's Prince Albert and Princess Charlene were "fabulous" guests at a lavish ball.

The newlyweds agreed to attend the Variety Club's Golden Jubilee Ball at Harewood House, Yorkshire, North England, as guests of honour and thrilled organisers with their willingness to get involved in festivities.

Club committee member Diana White told Britain's Hello! magazine: "They were fabulous. We couldn't have asked for more.

"They danced, sang and joined in the auction.

"They had great fun and were really happy and relaxed together. It was their first event in the UK since their wedding and a bit of a coup for the North."

Almost 40 years ago, Albert's parents, Prince Ranier and Princess Grace attended a similar event and the prince told the invited guests he was delighted to have followed in their footsteps.

He said: "39 years ago, my parents attended your ball as your guests of honour, in the presence of Cary Grant, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Michael Caine and Roger Moore.

"With Princess Charlene, we're really moved and happy to be the guests of honour at this Summer Ball.

"I wish a long life to your children's charity and raise my glass to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, to the success of your activities and to the friendship between the United Kingdom and the Principality of Monaco."

The ball raised around £250,000 for the charity.
