Prince Albert II of Monaco is visiting Chicago for the first time-- and he's on a mission. The prince gave a lecture at the Field Museum, 1400 S. Lake Shore Drive, Monday to announce a new partnership focused on conservation.

Mayor Daley and first lady Maggie Daley were on hand to talk with Prince Albert. They also visited Monaco's environmental stewardship gallery in the museum.

Prince Albert is devoted to environmental issues. His foundation works on a variety of scientific topics like climate change and developing renewable energies.
