Prince Albert and Princess Charlene distribute traditional parcels beneficiaries of the Monégasque Red Cross

Their Serene Highnesses Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco distributed the traditional parcels to the elderly beneficiaries of the Monégasque Red Cross on Friday. This is an annual tradition that takes place before the National Day of Monaco, also called the Sovereign Prince’s Day, which is celebrated on 19 November.

At the headquarters of the Monégasque Red Cross, Their Serene Highnesses handed out bags and sweets to each person, while also taking the time to have a short conversation. One woman thanked Charlene with a kiss on her hand.

Additionally ahead of the National Day of Monaco, Princess Charlene, Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques had tea with the Archbishop of Monaco, Bernard César Augustin Barsi. Five photos were posted to the Prince’s Palace of Monaco’s official Facebook page of the meeting. One adorable image shows Princess Gabriella sitting on the couch leaning her head on the Archbishop. Each picture was taken by Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene.
