Where do Monaco's celebrities go during the summer?
As usual, the month of August marks a drop in activity in the country's places of power. This is the time when the personalities of the Rock take advantage of this to take some time off.
Is it July or August? In the Principality, the age-old debate about summer holidays is quickly settled. The personalities of the Rock generally wait for the Monegasque Red Cross gala, the last major official event of the summer on the calendar, to take a few days off and unplug - at least partially - from current affairs.
So, after the evening of 18 July and the divine performance by Alicia Keys in front of the princely couple and 650 guests, everyone put away their evening clothes in the dressing room. And, little by little, activity diminished in the heart of the places of power in Monaco-Ville.
Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene, and their children, opted for a Mediterranean holiday not far from the Principality.
