For a Dynasty to survive hundreds of years is a small miracle indeed. In the case of the Grimaldi Dynasty it is over 700 years since when on January 8, 1297, Francois Grimaldi, dressed like a Franciscan monk, together with his allies captured the fortress on the Rock above Port Hercules.

In this down part of the season for Formula One Charles LeClerc seems busier than ever.
Immersed in Virtual Grand Prix Racing and supporting numerous charities, you would think the workload would be exhausting him. However he has just enough energy left to don a suit and make a fashion statement. Not just any fashion statement but he is now the face of Armani who have been quick to capitalize on his youthful looks and toned physique.

It’s Vettel’s fifth season without being on top of the drivers’ standings and as a consequence no constructor championships in that time either for Ferrari. Last year having finished fifth behind Charles LeClerc – his worst result ever as Formula 1 lead driver – the writing was already on the wall. His status as the team’s number one driver was torn in shreds. Time to leave at the end of this season – it has not been working for him or Ferrari and the team spirit between him and Charles has been questionable at best. They say that a bit of competition doesn’t hurt anybody, but when team orders are flouted and there are “misunderstandings” on the racetrack – that arguably cost vital points – then something has to give.
The Compagnie Monégasque de Banque (CMB) has raised over €470,000 for the Princess Grace Hospital Centre (CHPG) in a successful funding drive. On 11 April, the bank began collecting donations with the idea of enabling residents and friends of the Principality to participate in the fight against COVID-19. The bank kicked things off by donating the first €100,000 to the drive.
If Charles LeClerc would wish for a greater high-point than winning the Italian Grand Prix on Ferrari’s 90th anniversary, it could surely only be winning at home. For him the grandest of all the Grand Prix has to be Monaco.
That target is not yet a jinx, by no means, but it is a trifle elusive early on in Charles’ ascendancy – and in 2020, of course, there is no race due to Coronavirus.
It was 150 years ago exactly to this May 2020 when on May 31, 1870, Prince Charles III created the College of Monaco on the Rock, its very first. This establishment, first taught by Jesuits, will become the current Lycée Albert I which he started in the former convent of the Visitation. The current Chapel of the Visitation stands testimony to it.
