Every day, the head of state represents the country on the international stage. His speech and the way he dresses go straight to the world’s media. Official meetings, public events, congresses and conferences – all these require the right wardrobe.
Dress code for government representatives is not a place for fashion experiments. But different events, countries and cultures oblige fashion designers to be creative. What kind of clothes does the head of the Principality of Monaco choose and what is the secret of his elegant style?
In 2022 Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene celebrated a very special date – their 11th wedding anniversary. On this occasion Monaco’s Palais released a new photo that was taken in the gardens. His Highness is elegant as usual: a dark blue suit is complemented by a white shirt and with a necktie pearl white in colour.
For public speeches the head of the Principality of Monaco is following an official dress code. On 28th of June 2022 Prince Albert II joined the United Nations Ocean Conference in Portugal. For this occasion the choice was obvious: a dark blue jacket with a very special insignia – a badge with the symbol of “Fondation Prince Albert II de Monaco”.
The image chosen for the official opening of the new museum of The Cars Сollection of HSH the Prince of Monaco was more casual: a stylish combination of blue jacket, grey pants and a sky blue necktie.
Glamorous events are an integral part of life in the Principality of Monaco. One of the most awaited events of the season – Bal de la Rose 2022 was attended by members of the princely family. Dress for the Sovereign Prince: White jacket with a crystal white shirt and a small but bright detail – a red bow tie. The accessory respects the theme and the colour of this special evening.
Another world famous event was held in the Principality in the middle of summer 2021. The exclusive ceremony – 5th edition of the Monte-Carlo Gala for Planetary Health took place at the Prince’s Palace. Every year this charity event brings together celebrities, public figures and politicians. Prince Albert II walked the red carpet in a classic black tuxedo. The photos immediately made the world’s media headlines.
But even in the life of a public person there are moments of simple pleasure with family and friends. In December 2020 Princess Charlene posted a Christmas photo with Prince Albert II and their children: the twins Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella. The father is wearing red Christmas pajamas, Crocs and a ‘Joyeux Noel’ Santa hat.
