HSH Princess Stephanie, President of Fight AIDS Monaco, took part in three major events leading up to World AIDS Day on December 1.
On November 22, the Princess and her daughter Pauline Ducruet came out to support the Fight AIDS Monaco team at the “Test in the City” operation in front of Carrefour.
This is an anonymous and free screening for the public. A total of 241 people were tested – 190 people by Fight Aids Monaco and 51 by the Emergency Department at Princess Grace Hospital.
On November 27, Princess Stephanie, along with Christophe Steiner, President of the National Council and Didier Gamerdinger Minister of Health and Social Affairs (who also was on hand for “Test in the City”) handed out memorial quilts at the Oceanographic Museum, each quilt carrying the names, birthdates and dates of death of victims of the disease.
Finally on December 1, in support of World AIDS Day, Princess Stephanie and Prince Albert, along with Camille Gottlieb and Louis Ducruet and his companion, attended the Fight Aids Monaco art auction at the Salon Atlantique at Le Meridien Beach Plaza hotel.
The event raised €188,100 for the charity.
The National Assembly has welcomed the latest graduates to the Principality’s Police Force.
An incredible 12-month time lapse video showing the creation of Monaco’s mammoth land extension project has just been released.
Monaco has a new bailiff, or huissier as known locally, who was sworn in earlier this week.
General crime rates in the Principality dropped by a significant 16% between the years 2016 and 2019, and street crime by an impressive 52%.
In his first full day in office as President of France, Emmanuel Macron has named the Deputy Mayor of Le Havre, Edouard Philippe, as his prime minister. The 46-year-old new head of government has been a strong supporter of conservative Alain Juppé, but his first foray into politics was as a Socialist. More recently he famously declined to give details of the value of his apartment in Paris and a house in Seine-Maritime. “No idea,” was his answer to enquiries from the High Authority for Transparency in Public Life (HATVP). Born in Rouen to two French teacher parents, Mr Philippe’s credentials as a product of the highest echelons of the Parisian educational system are impeccable. He graduated at Sciences Po-Paris in 1992 and then at ENA, the École nationale d'administration. After working alongside Alain Juppe during the fictitious jobs crisis of 2004, Mr Phillipe joined a law firm. He later became Director of Public Affairs at Areva. His own public political career was launched in June 2010, when he took over from Antoine Rufenacht at the Le Havre town hall. Further appointments by president Macron during the next few days will be watched closely. (Feature image President Macron: Facebook Élysée – Présidence de la République française)
