On September 20, 2012, His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco arrived in Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada.
On his first day the sovereign prince went on a nature walk with Qikiqtani Inuit Association President, Ms. Okalik Eegeesiak and Ms. Alacie Joamie, according to CBC reporter, Ms. Emily Ridlington. During his walk, Ms. Ridlington noted that the sovereign prince “…learned about the sensitive marine Arctic environment…”
As I mentioned a couple of days ago, Prince Albert II is also scheduled to meet with Mayor of Iqaluit, Ms. Madeleine Redfern, as well as “… students from the Nunavut Arctic College…” Prince Albert II will also “… make an announcement with Oceans North Canada and the Qikiqtani Inuit Association on behalf of his foundation (the Fondation Prince Albert II de Monaco), which supports environmental conservation projects…” during his trip.
On Friday, the sovereign prince is scheduled to visit the Inuit community of Kuujjuaq located in Nunavik, Quebec.
