5th November 2008
H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco followed the American presidential campaign with great interest.
For the Prince, Barack Obama’s victory is indisputably a turning point that will mark the history of the United States of America, but even more, it is the birth of tremendous hope.
Aware of his extraordinary personality, his charisma, his intelligence and his talent as a speaker, the Prince foresees that the new governmental regime will be marked by his humanism.
This is the letter H.S.H. has sent to Barack Obama.
“After an extraordinary path that has captivated the whole world, you have just entered the history book of the United States of America.
You embody at the highest level the values which the American people recognise in themselves.
The task with which you have now been entrusted is equal to the tremendous hope you have created not only in your country but well beyond its borders.
I am convinced that thanks to your influence, your courage and your humanism, you will be able to bring greatness to America during these times of such uncertainty.
At this historical moment, I would like to express, on my own behalf and on behalf of the people of Monaco, my warmest congratulations and sincerest wishes for success in the accomplishment of the high responsibilities that fall upon you.”
