The closing gala dinner marking the bicentenary of the creation of the Compagnie des Carabiniers du Prince – the Prince’s Guard – was held on Friday, December 8, at the Salle des Etoiles in the presence of Prince Albert.

The Prince received imprint No 01 of the “Bicentennial Calendar” from Colonel Fringant, Superior Commander of the Police Force, in the presence of Princess Stephanie and her son, the Carabinier of first class Louis Ducruet.

Throughout the year, a series of commemorations marked the occasion, including an exhibition at the Prince’s Palace, entitled “Two centuries of history, 1817-2017” from June 13 to October 15.

The Prince’s Carabinieri Orchestra also took part in the Edinburgh Military Tattoo in August, in the presence of the Prince.

A stamp marking the bicentennial was published by the Monaco Stamp Office and a commemorative coin of two euros was minted, with 15,000 pieces.
