Monaco’s Ambassador to the United States: Who Is Maguy Maccario Doyle?

Sunday, June 29, 2014

Maguy Maccario Doyle was appointed the Principality of Monaco’s ambassador to the United States on November 12, 2013, and presented her credentials to President Barack Obama on December 3, 2013. It’s the first ambassadorial post for Maccario Doyle and she is only the second person to hold the post.

 

Maccario Doyle attended New York’s Parsons School of Design, graduating with a bachelor of arts degree. She joined Monaco’s tourism office in New York in 1976, becoming head of the Monaco Tourism Board in North America in 1994. Her biggest project in that role was a series of events in 2007 celebrating the life of Princess Grace, who gave up her career as a Hollywood actress to marry Prince Rainier of Monaco, raising money for the Princess Grace Foundation-USA.

 

In 1995, Prince Rainier III appointed Maccario Doyle consul in New York and two years later she was named Monaco’s consul general, a position she held until being named to the Washington post. Most of her time in that role was spent strengthening tourism and cultural connections between Monaco and the United States.

 

Maccario Doyle, who is active in New York and Washington social circles, has two daughters, Kim and Gabby.
