In addition to the traditional cocktail at the Palace followed by the dinner at the Beef Bar with the Consular Corps of Monaco, the fireworks and mass the following day were followed up by a surprise for visiting Americans.  By request of HSH Prince Albert II, the flag ship of the sixth fleet of the US Navy, the USS Mount Whitney, was docked at the Port d’Hercule in Monaco for the National Day celebrations.  His Serene Highness had requested the strong American presence to commemorate the passing of his mother, HSH Princess Grace of Monaco.

His Excellency Charles Rivkin, US Ambassador to France and Monaco arranged for the presence of the Ship in Monaco.  The USS Mount Whitney’s officers and crew hosted a spectacular lunch on board the vessel.  His Excellency Gilles Noghés, Ambassador of Monaco to the USA, attended, leading the Consular Corps of Monaco in the United States.  His Serene Highness Prince Albert II was welcomed by the Commander and the Ambassadors, as was Her Royal Highness Princess Caroline, escorted by her two sons, Andrea and Pierre Casiraghi, both of whom are officers in the Prince’s Guard.
