Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco were among the guests of the British Royal Family for a reception on the eve of the coronation of Charles III. This participation is historic as it is the first time that a Monegasque sovereign has attended the coronation of a British monarch.
This is the reminder from Nice Matin.
In 1953, Prince Pierre, father of Prince Rainier III, represented the Principality, recalls Nice Matin, which takes up the confidences of Charlène de Monaco’s husband in an interview with TF1.
Prince Albert II was one of the first heads of state to announce that he would attend the coronation of the new British king.
He was seated among the VIPs in the pews of Westminster Abbey, accompanied by his wife Charlene of Monaco.
In addition, TF1 broadcast an interview with the Monegasque sovereign, recorded a few days ago in the salons of the Princely Palace, to talk about the personality of the new British monarch, whom he knows well.
The two men, Albert II and Charles III, have known each other for a long time. Both have been heirs to the throne of their dynasty, have participated in solemn, festive or commemorative events, and are involved in environmental conservation through foundations they have created. Prince Albert II spoke of Charles III’s natural empathy for people, adding that this will probably mark his reign.
Prince Albert II also referred to the new British king’s reputation for being a committed speaker, stressing that he would no doubt speak out on a variety of issues, but that it would take a great deal of coordination to ensure that all “his public interventions” were in line with “the British government and its Prime Minister”.
