The Passing of Baroness Elizabeth-Ann de Massy, first cousin of H.S.H. Prince Albert II
With sadness we note that Mrs. Elizabeth-Ann de Massy, first cousin of H.S.H. Prince Albert II, daughter of Princess Antoinette of Monaco, died in the Principality in the evening of June 10th in her 73rd year at Princess Grace Hospital. Very attached to the traditions of the Principality, the Baroness regularly took part in events bringing together all generations.
The Mairie in expressing their condolences commented how very attached she was to the traditions of our Country, and how Baroness Elizabeth-Ann de Massy honoured with her presence the traditional Monegasque events and festivals organized by the Mairie – among them, the traditional Cavagnëtu. The Baroness was thus each year faithfully present at the awards ceremony of the Rainier III Academy, the Superior School of Plastic Arts-Bosio Pavilion, and also that of the Monegasque Language Competition.
