On Saturday, Prince Albert and Princess Charlene, accompanied by Crown Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, attended the Saint Devote Rugby Tournament at Louis II Stadium.

The event was organised by the Monegasque Rugby Federation with the support of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, and the best striker in the French National Team’s history Frédéric Michalak – Patron of this eighth edition of the tournament – was also present.

South African World Champion JP Pietersen additionally came out to watch the 16 U12 teams from 13 countries. Tunisia competed in the final against Scotland and won the Tournament.

The Saint Devote Challenge Trophy was awarded to Monaco by HSH Princess Charlene.

The “Tots Rugby” program introduced the sport to children three to five years old, while “Rugby for Everyone” provided educational workshops and competitions adapted to children with disabilities.

In the Scottish tradition, the Edinburgh team was accompanied by a pipe band, which offered participants and spectators a good atmosphere and cheerfulness. Altogether, more than 350 children were gathered to celebrate a day of rugby.
