The 63rd Monte-Carlo Television Festival concluded in style, with the Princely couple shining on the Blue Carpet of the star-studded celebration of television and film on the evening of Tuesday, June 18.

A glamorous closing ceremony in the Grimaldi Forum featured four world premiers and the awarding of several ‘Golden Nymph’ awards to worthy recipients.

HSH Prince Albert personally presented the ‘Honorary Golden Nymph’ award to French director and actor Olivier Marchal, whose impressive 35 year career in the industry only began once he left the Paris judicial police.

The United Kingdom’s ‘The Gathering’ won Best Series, while Sweden’s ‘Little Did I Know’ came out on top in the film category. The Best Actress award went to Eva Morgan for her protagonist role as Kelly in ‘The Gathering’, while her co-star, Warren Brown, won Best Actor for his part as Paul.

The UK came out on top again with the Best Documentary in the form of ‘Ukraine’s War: The Other Side‘, while the Best News Programme award went to France’s ‘La Guerre de l’info: Isreal/Hamas’.

American actor Morgan Freeman was the first to be honoured in this year’s Television Festival, receiving the coveted Crystal Nymph. This award is reserved for major international television actors, and is awarded in recognition of ‘a stellar body of work’. Read more about that here.
