Prince of Monaco Visits Cody

Posted: Updated:
CODY, WYOMING -

European royalty is in Cody again. Prince Albert II of Monaco came to Cody to help present a $100,000 scientific prize for bio-diversity.

He will spend the evening at Buffalo Bill's former ranch on the Southfork.

His great-great grandfather, Prince Albert, came to the area 100 years ago to hunt the area's wildlife with Buffalo Bill, near Yellowstone.

The great-great grandson came to conserve wildlife, through the study of elk migrations. His Serene Highness got a standing ovation when he entered the crowded room, and donned a Stetson.

His foundation, along with the University of Wyoming, and the Draper Museum of Natural History at the Center of the West, sponsored the scientific grant.

One of the issues that concerns the prince is global warming.

"But climate change is happening and it is absolutely real. It will happen no matter what, and we have to find ways to mitigate that," said Albert II.

Prince Albert II was educated in the United States. His mother was the famous actress Grace Kelly. We'll have more on his historic visit to Wyoming Friday.
