H.S.H. Prince Albert II is the Sovereign of the Principality of Monaco and the head of the Princely House of Grimaldi.
Prince Albert’s humanity is evidenced by his involvement in a long list of charitable institutions and endeavors for environmental protection. In 2006 he created the Fondation Prince Albert II de Monaco, with the objective of protecting the environment and promoting local and global sustainable development. The foundation is the driving force behind the annual Monaco Ocean Week, an international framework for the exchange of ideas on ocean-related strategies to combat climate change.
