To mark its decennial this year, the Embassy of Monaco in the US last week celebrated with a cocktail reception in the presence of HSH Prince Albert at the Ambassador’s residence, which was attended by VIP guests from the diplomatic, government, social, philanthropic, media and business communities. A message of congratulations acknowledging the close ties and bond of more than 150 years between the US and Monaco was received from President Barack Obama.
When he inaugurated the Embassy, Prince Albert said that it would facilitate even closer links between the two countries. “I believe that both of our countries have been fortunate to build many bridges of friendship over the years. By working together, we will not only keep these bridges strong, but we’ll keep them open forever.”
In recognising the efforts of Monaco’s Embassy and representational offices across the US, Prince Albert said: “Our American friends know how much we share the same values and ideals and are eager to work on the same issues … and will always be warmly welcomed in Monaco.”
“The Embassy might be one of the newest – and smallest – diplomatic missions in the nation’s capital but we are a positive, proactive team focused on supporting the vision of our Sovereign and his Princely Government, and promoting Monaco’s many cultural, philanthropic and business attributes to our friends across the United States,” said Her Excellency Maguy Maccario Doyle, the Principality’s Ambassador to the US. “We share the same ideals and concerns, and we join with them – and the international community – to confront the great challenges of our time.”
Ms Maccario Doyle added that they have proudly championed the important environmental mission of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation since 2006, that the fifth anniversary as a permanent observer to the Organisation of American States was highlighted in 2015 and in this year they inaugurated the US chapter of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation. “We are able to accomplish so many diverse and engaging projects with the invaluable support of our consular network who reflect the diversity, creativity and dynamism of the Principality,” said Ms Maccario Doyle, who also serves as Vice-President of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation’s US chapter, which celebrates its own tenth birthday this year.
