Peille: royal couple awarded honorary citizenship
On Saturday 6 April 2019, Peille experienced a new and unique moment in its history when it officially received T.S.H. Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene in the presence of Monegasque personalities including Stéphane Valeri, President of the National Council. Ancient links, which date back to before the arrival of the Grimaldis in Monaco in 1297, bind Peille and the Principality. During the royal couple’s visit, a “Historical Site of the Grimaldis of Monaco” plaque symbolising this shared history was unveiled at the entrance to the medieval village where Franco-Monegasque friendship reigns.
