Monaco celebrates 65th birthday of Prince Albert II
On Tuesday 14 March, the Principality wished its Sovereign a happy birthday when he appeared at the window of the Prince’s Palace during the changing of the guard.
It was a surprise the tourists were probably not expecting. During the customary changing of the guard, Prince Albert II appeared at the Palace window, along with Hereditary Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella.
Below, the Carabinieri band played the world-famous “Happy Birthday,” originally Good Morning to All, a children’s song thought to have been written and composed in 1893 by two American sisters, Patty and Mildred Hill.
Birthday wishes flooded in
The Monegasque institutions also wished Prince Albert II a happy birthday. Starting with Monaco Town Hall, whose message was accompanied by a photo of the traditional “U Cavagnëtu” picnic from 2022.

The Roca Team displayed a photo of Prince Albert II alongside the president of AS Monaco basketball, Aleksej Fedoricsev. Not forgetting the Monaco Supporters Club on Twitter, who fêted the n°1 supporter of the “diagonals“.
