Tuesday 18 June was a historic day for the Principality as it welcomed the Olympic Flame for the second time. Many members of the Princely Family, the Government and the Monegasque Olympic Committee were present for the occasion. 


Mission accomplished! The Olympic Flame crossed the Principality from Port Hercule to the Place du Palais Princier on Tuesday 18 June. The six torchbearers , Charles Leclerc, Alexandra Coletti, Xiaoxin Yang, Rudy Rinaldi, Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene, took it in turns to carry the torch to the podium at the main entrance to the Prince’s Palace.

Here’s a look back at a special moment that will be remembered for a long time in Monaco.
