In their first formal meeting, French President Francois Hollande welcomed HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco to the Elysee Palace for a 'working lunch' to discuss matters of common interest and boost Franco-Monegasque relations. As I'm sure all regular readers know, the Principality of Monaco has a "special relationship" with the French Republic in that, while remaining a sovereign state, the principality is a protectorate of France and France has traditionally had considerable influence in the micro-monarchy on their southern coast.
"And how about this global warming huh?"
"Well, thanks for the lunch Monsieur, we'll have to have you over to the palace someday"
"Goodbye Frenchie friends, I love ya!"
"See you later guys, I won't be far away"
