Prince Albert has been awarded the Medal of Honour at the Ellis Island Honour Society in New York. The medal, officially recognised by the US Senate as one of the most prestigious honours in the country, rewards those who embody the values of tolerance, fraternity, diversity and patriotism. Several members of Prince Albert’s maternal family immigrated to the US from Ireland via Ellis Island.
Postal deliveries in Monaco are to be affected when the sorting office at Nice Airport is moved to Toulon. The further distance means mail trucks will arrive up to an hour later than usual in the Principality, with knock-on delays to mail sorting. Mail pickup times will also change from June 11th, with mail from Post Offices leaving at 3:45 pm instead of 4:30 pm.
