Glamor has returned to Monaco after last year the health crisis forced the cancellation of the great night gala that traditionally puts the finishing touch on the Principality’s National Day, a date of celebration since 1949 that coincides with the anniversary of Raniero’s arrival to the throne III. Although in 2020 only the daytime event could be held in the Cathedral of San Nicolás, complying with the measures of social distance and the use of masks, this time the brightness and elegance typical of the gala have also returned.
The absence of Princess Charlène, who remains admitted outside the principality due to a “profound emotional and physical exhaustion”, had been announced a few days ago, but Prince Albert II was sheltered by his sisters, Princess Carolina and Princess Estefanía, and their children. The most notable presence of this edition was that of Carlota Casiraghi, who had not participated in the event since 2017. Princess Carolina’s daughter attended without her husband, Dimitri Rassam, but was accompanied by her eldest son – fruit of her relationship with him actor and comedian Gad Elmaleh―, Raphäel, who turns eight in December. During the daytime event, she drew attention wearing a Chanel coat-dress in gold tone and at night she opted for the sobriety of black tweed from a design signed by the same French house, of which she is an ambassador.

Her mother, Carolina de Monaco, also trusted Chanel in both acts, choosing for the great evening gala a design from the Autumn / Winter 2017-2018 haute couture collection composed of a blue and black sequined bodice and a silk skirt underneath. knee. The only one who opted to go long was Tatiana Santo Domingo, who opted for a black dress signed by the Italian house Prada.

The memory of Princess Charlène was very present in all the acts of the National Day of Monaco, because precisely on this occasion it is the 10th anniversary of her marriage to Prince Albert. This has been the first time that the prince has celebrated this important date without his wife since his wedding in 2011. The announcement of his absence, which was made public last Tuesday, comes just a week after he returned to the Principality after spending eight months in South Africa as a result of a nose, mouth and ear infection.
Shortly after, Alberto de Monaco himself settled the rumors of a marriage crisis that have been haunting the couple for months in an interview with the American magazine People. “Princess Charlène of Monaco is admitted to a facility outside Monaco where she is undergoing treatment to recover from her deep emotional and physical exhaustion. You probably have to say this several times, but it has nothing to do with our relationship. I want to make it clear. They are not problems between us, this has a different nature ”, he affirmed.
As he added, his condition is due in part to the aftermath of the operations and treatment he underwent in recent months, but it is not just that. After the Prince’s return from his trip to Dubai, they jointly agreed that Charlène will remain away from public life “resting and receiving adequate medical treatment” until her complete recovery. Alberto de Monaco also took the opportunity to deny that he suffers from diseases such as cancer or covid-19, as well as a possible cosmetic surgery intervention, rumors that have been circulating in recent months.
In previous editions of Monaco’s National Day, Charlène used to be one of the main protagonists of the celebrations of the anniversary thanks to her ability to surprise with transgressive and different stylistic choices. In 2019, for example, she decided to skip protocol by swapping her evening dress for a masculine-inspired black tuxedo in an unprecedented choice. At the end of last year she made headlines when she appeared with shaved hair becoming the only princess in the world to dare with such a risky haircut.
