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.
This November 19, 2022, Princess Charlene took part in the festivities again on this national holiday, also called Prince’s Day, the date of which coincides with the feast of Saint Rainier of Arezzo, a Franciscan religious. The day began with the usual mass of thanksgiving at Notre-Dame-Immaculate Cathedral in Monaco, celebrated by Archbishop Dominique-Marie David.
