(VIDEO) HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco Visits Plymouth University.

On October 29, 2015, His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco arrived at Plymouth University in Plymouth, Devon, England, to officially open the new £4.85 million Marine Station.

According to the university’s official website the new two-story research station has:

“…teaching rooms with panoramic views of Plymouth Sound, a 120 square metre ‘wet lab’, where up to 50 students at a time can study samples, which can then be transferred to the aquarium facility served by continuous fresh seawater. 

[During today’s opening the sovereign prince] unveiled a plaque to signal the official opening.  He then took a tour of the building and met staff and students who use it as part of their marine biology and engineering degrees, and for research purposes.”
