He met with Albert too, during a symposium on water a few weeks back. But it's like the chicken and the egg thing, once you start looking for who gave it to who, really. The British kiss and hug less - a blessing in this case, and QE2 looked pretty good on her call with her disheveled PM. I can't help thinking Putin's warships appearing suddenly in the English channel is the aspiring Russian "king" trying to exploit a moment of weakness. I wish he (and Pompeo too) would stay home in these times 🙄 No sense rattling people's nerves further.
Plus, they didn't even shake hands or rub shoulders because Charles apparently had a senior moment and walked on by at the photo op. If only that had spared at least one but it goes to show the virus doesn't discriminate and is unpredictable. I hope they both get better.
Before today announcing scaling back the lockdown. I hope Monaco has achieved "herd immunization" like Sweden, or better yet as with NZ, has beaten the virus (lucky bunny Jacinda who got a call from my bestie...sniff)
Bravo to Albert for his magnanimous gesture to his people.
