TSHs Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco Watch the Fête-Dieu Procession.

On the afternoon of Thursday, June 16, 2022, Their Serene Highnesses Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco accompanied by their daughter, Her Serene Highness Princess Gabriella of Monaco, watched the Fête-Dieu procession from the balcony at the Palais Princier de Monaco in Monaco-Ville.

The Fête-Dieu, aka Corpus Christi or Corpus Domini, is known as the solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ.  This feast day is celebrated on the Thursday following Holy Trinity, sixty days after Easter, as a reminder of the Institution of the Eucharist which takes place on Holy Thursday of Holy Week.  It commemorates the real presence of Jesus Christ in the bread and wine that is traditionally consecrated during the Mass.
