Prince Albert paid a morning visit to the Chaumont-Porcien, a village with a population of 500, on Tuesday, April 3.

The Prince’s itinerary included the recently-renovated chapel of Saint-Berthauld, a building which became part of the Grimaldi estates through the marriage of Louise d’Aumont Mazarin to Honoré IV of Monaco in 1771.

And although the official inauguration of the chapel won’t take place until June 16, the 1500th anniversary of the death of Saint-Berthauld, mayor Guy Camus told France 3 Region that Prince Albert was unavailable in June.

“The Palace asked me what security I could provide, in a small village like ours … I do not have a policeman here.” The prefect provided the necessary security and after six month of preparation and meetings, everything was ready, he said.

The Prince gave a speech in the town hall square later in the day, before the visit came to a close with an exchange of gifts and a tasting of local products.
