Prince Albert

Who's That Girl?

Despite reports that Prince Albert was about to propose to Charlene Wittstock, 28, his girlfriend of nine months, marriage now appears to rank low on the princely to-do list. In Newport, R.I., on the weekend of Aug. 11 for a jazz festival and charity event, Albert, 48, was accompanied by Heather Van Zuidam, a Naples, Fla., real estate agent; they were guests of the private club Carnegie Abbey. Though they held hands and shared a kiss, Van Zuidam, 33, told PEOPLE she met Albert at a tennis event in Monaco 15 years ago and that they are "longtime friends." So will Albert—who in June acknowledged paternity of a second child born out of wedlock—ever marry? In an Aug. 13 interview with Good Morning America, he avowed, "I have no plans in the near or distant future."
