CODY, Wyo. -- Prince Albert II of Monaco plans to travel to Wyoming next year to mark the 100th anniversary of a visit by his great-great-grandfather.

The Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody says the prince has accepted its invitation to attend the 2013 Patrons Ball in Cody next September.

Prince Albert I visited Cody in September 1913. He spent two weeks hunting for elk and deer with William Buffalo Bill Cody outside Yellowstone National Park.

Prince Albert II is the ruling sovereign of Monaco and the son of late American film star Grace Kelly.
