One of the gift distributions took place at the headquarters of the Monegasque Red Cross where retirees on social services have received gifts for over 70 years. Princess Charlene was given flowers upon her arrival before she and Prince Albert began handing out gift bags to those deserving.

At the Princely Palace, over 600 children, aged 5 to 12, watched a hip-hop dance show in the Throne Room before receiving their gifts. The presentation of Christmas gifts was initiated by Albert’s mother, Princess Grace. Afterwards, the Princely Family posed outside with them in front of smurf Christmas decorations. The decorations were added for Prince Albert and Princess Charlene’s twins, Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques’ fifth birthday on 10 December.
