The Prince of Monaco’s new Carabinieri experienced the highlight of their career to date as they received their insignia. From Princess Stephanie herself!

The helicopter landing pad at the Moneghetti Barracks was the stage for a solemn and moving event on June 21. Princess Stephanie, Patron of the Prince’s Riflemen, presented the Corps insignia to the four new recruits from the «Louis Nattareu» promotion.


After a welcoming address by Lieutenant-Colonel Martial Pied, Head of the Corps, the review of the troops and presentation of the company’s Pennant, the recruits received their Corps insignia, blessed by Father Christian Venard, the Public Forces’ Chaplain. The ceremony was rounded off in style, with the Monegasque Anthem performed by the Prince’s Carabinieri Orchestra and all the military personnel.
