A subscription is to be opened in honour of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco’s upcoming 60th birthday, the mayor and members of the Communal Council announced earlier this week according to Monaco Life.
The subscription, which will be open through 31 March, is open to the residents and people of Monaco, along with their spouses and children. According to the wishes of His Serene Highness, the money collected will be donated to one or two charities. The exact charities have not yet been decided.
Those wishing to donate can do so through one of the avenues below:
- Sending a cheque to “Treasury General of Finance–60th Anniversary of HSH Prince Albert II”. It should be addressed to the General Treasury of Finances at the Prince’s Palace of Monaco.
- Transferring funds into the account “60th anniversary of SAS Le Prince Albert II” of the Trésorerie Générale des Finances. Other relevant information to note: No. 30004 09170 00040602413–76, BNP Paribas Bank
Prince Albert of Monaco will celebrate his 60th birthday on 14 March. No public celebrations have yet been announced. There were none in January when his wife, Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene, celebrated her 40th birthday either. It is likely that His Serene Highness will celebrate with close friends and family privately.
Prince Albert was born to Prince Rainer and his American born actress wife, Princess Grace (née Kelly) on 14 March 1958. The Prince was born with dual Monégasque-American citizenship, but he renounced his US citizenship at the age of 21. He has an older sister, Princess Caroline (b. 1957) and a younger sister, Princess Stéphanie (b. 1965).
Albert came to the throne upon the death of his father in 2005. He married the former South African swimmer Charlene Wittstock in 2011. Together, they have three-year-old twins: Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques.
