Principality shows its heartfelt solidarity

NEWS: Monaco marked last Thursday’s tragic event in Nice with a special service at the Cathedral on Saturday morning. Prince Albert and Princess Charlene were joined by representatives of all of the Principality’s major institutions in a moving ceremony of remembrance for the 84 victims and their families.

Archbishop Bernard Barsi, who led the service, told the congregation: “Once again, murderous barbarity has hit innocent people.”

Many public events over the weekend were cancelled as a sign of respect. Security has also been stepped up in the Principality.
