On November 18, 2015, Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco presented medals of the "Order of St Charles" and "Order of Grimaldi" to various Monaco citizens on the occasion of National Day of Monaco 2015.

The Monaco National Day or “Fête du Prince”, is celebrated every November 19th.

In the days leading up to the “Fête du Prince”, the whole country takes part in a range of activities culminating in a fireworks display in Port Hercule on November 18th. The Princely Family personally delivers care packages to the Monaco Red Cross and to senior citizens. The Prince presides over several medal ceremonies, bestowing prestigious distinctions such as Ordre des Grimaldi (Order of Grimaldi), Ordre de Saint Charles (Order of St Charles), and Mérite Culturel (Cultural Merit) among others.

On November 19, the Prince and his family, along with officials and nationals, attend a morning Thanksgiving mass at the Cathedral, followed by a parade of Monaco’s official corps (police and fire departments, Prince’s Guards, etc) on the Palace Square. Festivities conclude with an opera gala evening – at the Monte Carlo Opera or the Grimaldi Forum – in the presence of the Princely Family.

  3. In the first and second fotos Princess Charlene can be seen standing just to Albert's right, next to a charming petite brunette dressed in black. Charlene herself wears what seems to be a coat in dark brown.

  5. She is in Picture 1. Unmistakable with her height and her style. Standing next to the Prince, as one would expect.

  6. Geez, all you have to is enlarge the photo and look in the first row, which is where she would normally be standing.

  7. I think the beret Princess Charlene wears in the photos are throwing people off. With her short hair and what looks to be a hat, it makes it hard to recognize her at first.

    1. She is a princess not a queen. Monaco is a principality not a kingdom.
