‘Icing on the cake’ of the upcoming international festival of circus art in Izhevsk will be the visit of Princess of Monaco Stephanie Maria Elizabeth. Director of the State Circus of Udmurtia Andrei Leschinsky reported this at a press conference at the Ministry of Culture of the Republic.
Confirmed her possible – let's say so far so far, so as not to jinx it – coming here, to visit us, Her Highness princess Stephanie. This is person number one in the circus world, we can safely say. She patronizes, finances and organizes the most prestigious Monte Carlo circus festival in the world. And she accepted the invitation to come to our festival, support our artists and the organizing committee, to greet everyone
Details of the visit of Princess Stephanie in Udmurtia are not announced yet, the organizers have three more weeks for additional preparation and coordination of the full program, Andrei Leschinsky said, and this is a considerable responsibility for the organizing committee. Previously, the member of the princely house of Monaco expressed the wish to visit one of the cultural establishment and a place to stay and practice children. Probably the visit will be one-day.
Additionally that Princess Stephanie is the youngest daughter of Prince Rainier III of Monaco and the Hollywood actress Grace Kelly – since 2005 she has been the chairman of the organizing committee of the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival. The organizers specify that she visited Russia only in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
