It is the first win for a Monegasque on the legendary. circuit in 93 years, since Louis Chiron crossed the line in 1931, before the Formula 1 championship era dawned.

So much so that the Prince couldn’t stop himself from breaking with podium protocol and expressing his joy during the prize-giving ceremony. Here are some photo highlights from the Grand Prix events, which were as moving as they were exciting, in the company of the Prince and Princess.
