H.S.H. Princess Stephanie in Romania

On Wednesday 4 October, H.S.H. Princess Stephanie was in Romania alongside the Mayor of Bucharest, Gabriela Firea, to inaugurate a statue of Prince Rainier III on Circus Square in the City’s centre.

Prince Rainier III was a great champion of the traditional circus.

In 1974, he founded the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival to celebrate the arts of the Circus.

Every January since then, the Festival enjoys tremendous popular success.

Because the arts of the circus have a privileged place in Romanian culture, the City of Bucharest wished to pay this special tribute to Prince Rainier.

Princess Stephanie ended her visit with a meeting with H.R.H. Princess Margareta, daughter of King Michael of Romania, and her husband, Prince Radu, at the Royal Palace in Bucharest.
