I have no doubt that the warm relationship that has existed between our two countries over the years will continue to grow and strengthen.
Rest assured that my country, the Principality of Monaco, will be at the United States’ side in promoting the values we have always shared in the past.
I want to believe that you will show your determination in preserving our efforts to lead on environmental protection, in particular, the commitments to fight against climate change, with a special consideration for our oceans.
Princess Charlene joins me in conveying to you and the First Lady our highest consideration and our best personal regards.

While in New York City for the Princess Grace Awards in October, Prince Albert, the son of American actress Grace Kelly and Prince Rainer of Monaco, told People Magazine about his feelings regarding Trump’s comments on climate change. He said, “I was pretty shocked when I heard his climate change denial. It’s dangerous to have someone like this running for office, someone who can have people believing it’s all a conspiracy.”
President-elect Trump will take office on 20 January 2017.
