Monaco Celebrates Accession of Prince Albert
Ambassador of Monaco and Mrs. Gilles Noghès celebrated the anniversary of Prince Albert of Monaco’s accession to the throne at a cocktail reception at the Metropolitan Club on July 9. The prince has focused his attention on the environment, marine science, foreign aid and sport, being the only head of state to visit both the North and South Pole in his conservation effort. Chief of Protocol Capricia Marshall hailed the Noghès as “two great diplomats and two great friends.” In Sept., Prince Albert will visit Cody, Wyoming, to mark the centennial of his grandfather’s tour of the American West with Buffalo Bill. California Congressman Ed Royce toasted the hosts’ 25th wedding anniversary.
