IOD Monaco branch organised their first lunch of the year with speaker, Richard Hale, recently retired from the famous Abbey Road Studios.
The Branch was honoured with the presence of HRH Prince Albert II of Monaco, a keen musician himself and a long time friend of the speaker. The Prince stayed for cocktails and mingled with members and guests in a relaxed atmosphere at the Hotel Metropole.
There were also some Antipodeans amongst the group and the Prince happily posed for photographs to commemorate Australia Day. After the Prince’s departure, lunch was served and the speaker then entertained members and guests with his many stories of life at Abbey Road Studios.
