Today, The Principality of Monaco is celebrating Monaco’s National Day 2018, or “la Fête du Prince".
This public holiday in Monaco is celebrated on the 19th November, if this falls on a Sunday, the public holiday will be observed on the following Monday.

Also known as “H.S.H. The Sovereign Prince’s Day” or “La Fête du Prince” in French, this holiday is the National Day of Monaco and marks the official ascension of H.S.H. Prince Albert II to the throne on the 19th November 2005.

The tradition of a Monégasque National Day began during the reign of H.S.H. Prince Charles III in the second half of the nineteenth century. The date for the National Day could change depending on the reigning Prince, and the day of the saint they were named after, was the usual custom.

When H.S.H. Prince Albert II succeeded his father in 2005, he decided to honor his father and maintain the National Day of the 19th November, St. Rainier of Arezzo’s day. The 19th of November is a fitting date as it is also the same day of H.S.H. Prince Albert II’s official ascension to the throne in 2005.

The Principality of Monaco is a sovereign city-state located on the French Riviera. It is the second smallest country in the world after the Vatican City, and is the smallest country in the world with a coastline.

H.S.H. Prince Albert II is a member of the House of Grimaldi which has ruled Monaco since 1297.

This year Prince Albert II, Princess Charlene, Princess Caroline, Princess Stephanie, Pierre...
