Because of the pandemic, the Princely Family of Monaco was not overly active in 2020. Here we take a look at some of their engagements in 2020:
Prince Albert of Monaco sent a letter to the Australian Prime Minister during the bush fire crisis to express his condolences and support. Princess Charlene also celebrated her 42nd birthday.

We also highlighted the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation on our website before the Prince stressed that he was not responsible for giving the Prince of Wales COVID.
Prince Albert chaired the first workshop for the 11th Monaco Blue Initiative. Baroness Elisabeth-Anne de Massy, a cousin to Prince Albert, died on 10 June, and he led the masked mourners at her funeral. His car collection later re-opened to the public. The royal twins also enjoyed St. John’s celebrations from the palace balcony.
Prince Albert’s daughter, Jazmin Grimaldi, was diagnosed with COVID-19. Princess Charlene announced she was set to participate in a waterbike challenge across the Mediterranean. The Monaco national football team honoured Princess Grace with their jerseys.
