Monaco Royal Family Celebrate National Day

MONACO – The Monaco Royal Family celebrated on Monday the city-state’s national day with military honors, a short mass and special celebrations throughout the city.

The national day of Monaco is traditionally determined by the reigning monarch who chooses the national day of celebration to coincide with his/her saint day, a tradition Prince Albert II – the current King of Monaco – parted with by choosing Nov. 19, the same day his father chose.

“This joyful day starts with a Te Deum (a Christian hymn) in the Monaco Cathedral attended by the Grimaldi family. The Monegasque people take this opportunity to honor their Princes,” the micro-state’s official website said in a statement.

“Festivities are organized throughout the town, including a magnificent fireworks display, concerts, parades on the Place du Palais and medal ceremonies. The fun fair is in full swing for the delight of children and adults alike; it comes to an end one week after the National Day,” the statement added.
