In 2020, the public festivities of the Monegasque National Day had been canceled due to the health crisis. In 2021, the national holiday returned to its usual colors, especially since it was dedicated to the 10 years of marriage of Prince Albert and Princess Charlene. Unfortunately, Princess Charlene was not present, having just returned from South Africa and unable to attend the ceremonies for health reasons.
