Prince Albert of Monaco visits Haitian schoolFebruary 15, 2013 @ 4:22 pm
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) - Royalty has made a rare visit to impoverished Haiti.
Prince Albert of Monaco came to the Caribbean nation Friday to inaugurate a primary school that he has built. The school will bear his name.
The prince also met with Haitian President Michel Martelly on the grounds of the National Palace. They privately discussed ways to improve the environment, and they talked about the prince's foundation building a center for researchers to study AIDS.
It was the second time for royalty to visit Haiti since Martelly took office in 2011. That year, Queen Sofia of Spain came.
Albert's visit was his first to Haiti.
