Princess Stephanie of Monaco talks Circus

"Circus is the magic you should show your children. 

"Circus is what real life should be like. It's sincerity, feeling, emotions. All real. There are no lies in circus. There are artists working together to give a smile. It's a world where people help one another. It's the only show where a family, everyone from children to their grandmothers, can sit together and all be entertained by the same thing. 

"Animals are the traditional circus. It's what people remember from their childhood. 

"You ask people, 'What is the circus?' They'll say, 'Animals, clowns and acrobats!' That's what people want. If you say you don't have animals, they walk away." 

- Princess Stephanie, Monaco, 2016
