Princess Stephanie’s daughter, Pauline Ducruet, was a recent guest of the Embassy of Monaco in Washington DC, where she took part in an event recognising young circus performers.

As part of a tribute to Prince Rainier III for his involvement in the circus and for the contributions that the Grimaldi Family continues to make to the circus, Ms Ducruet, who is President of the New Generation Young Artists Festival, chaired the closing session of the Smithsonian Folklife Festival devoted to the new generation.

The day before, a reception was held at the Residence of the Ambassador to welcome Ms Ducruet, as well as to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Festival.

The Smithsonian Folklife Festival is organised by the Smithsonian Institute, which promotes cultural exchanges between countries, artists and the public.
