Prince and former president dine together

Prince and former president dine together

By Cassandra Tanti - June 25, 2019

The famed Le Grill at the Hôtel de Paris was the scene of a discreet and friendly dinner last Friday night between HSH Prince Albert II and the former First Couple, Barack and Michelle Obama. Other than a curiously large retinue of bodyguards hovering near the entrance, not an entirely uncommon sight in Monaco, the reunion went almost unnoticed, allowing the trio to dine virtually incognito.

The Prince had only just returned that day from a visit to Spain where he had been presenting at the award ceremony for the Spanish branch of the Prince Albert II Foundation, as well as meeting with King Felipe VI. The Obamas, holidaying in Europe with their daughters Melia and Sasha, as well as various extended family members, made a short stopover in Monaco allowing this cosy meet up to occur.

 After departing Monaco, the ex-First Family spent a day hiking in Eze, before travelling onto Lake Como where they were hosted by Actor George Clooney and his wife, Amal.
