The Principality will celebrate its National Day on Sunday, November 19, but there will fireworks at 8 pm on Saturday, November 18, in Port Hercule.

Live coverage of the Fête National can be seen on the Facebook page of the Prince’s Palace, including the parade of the Carabiniers du Prince, the Mass in Notre-Dame-Immaculée Cathedral and the traditional appearance of the Family on the balcony of the Palace.

The main events of the day start at 9:30 am with the Presentation of Arms and distribution of rank badges and medals in the Court of Honour of the Prince’s Palace.

The Thanksgiving Mass will be held from 10:15 am until 11:15 am with a Te Deum at the Cathedral of Monaco.

At 11:35 am there will be a military parade in the presence of a detachment of France’s 17th Parachute Engineer Regiment on Palace Square.
