Monaco II

Cliff-top photo of the Principality of Monaco showing Monte Carlo, its harbour and the Prince's Palace set on the rocky outcrop in the background. Almost the entirety of the country's two square kilometres can be seen here. Only Fontveillie, located behind the outcrop, is out of view. Monaco must surely be one of the few countries photographable in a single frame!

Engraved definitive of Prince Albert II, who is, of course, the eldest son of Princess Grace. She met Prince Rainier while in Monaco filming To Catch a Thief with Carey Grant. Very lovely hand cancellation quite in contrast to the rather unlovely dot matrix one on my previous Monaco card.
