The traditional celebrations for Monaco’s National Day will take place on Thursday, November 19, but with some events cancelled and others curtailed. The day is a state holiday in Monaco.

The Te Deum mass at Monaco’s cathedral will be attended by half the usual number of dignitaries and other leading members of the community in order to maintain social distancing rules.

The long-planned concert during which Cécilia Bartoli and the Prince’s Musicians will perform will go ahead with 500 guests instead of the planned 1,500 at the Grimaldi Forum, by invitation only.
