The Sovereign will then light up the façade of the Palace of Monaco in green, the colour symbolic of this Christian Feast, alongside HE Paul Kavanagh, ambassador of Ireland in Paris and Monaco, on the Palace Square.
This moment of conviviality accompanied by Irish music will open to the public at approximately 7:45pm.
