We arrived back from our travels this week to find the crane that built Tour Odeon is now being dismantled. We expect the new skyscraper's inauguration to take place soon. Also, Hadelin De La Tour Du Pin has been confirmed as the new French Ambassador to Monaco and will take up her duties in October.
Tomorrow sees the start of the Palermo to MonteCarlo Regatta, with Monaco's Pierre Casiraghi hoping to repeat his win of last year, and keep the trophy in the Principality.
Finally, we're looking ahead to November, when James Blunt is performing in Monaco as part of his Moon Landing tour.
