Accompanied by her husband, Prince Albert II, Princess Charlène received the honour – in its highest category, Knight Grand Cross – from the Italian Ambassador to Monaco, Antonio Morabito. The honour was awarded to the Princess on the command of Italy’s President, Giorgi Napolitano.

It is in recognition of Princess Charlène’s “worldwide humanitarian and philanthropic action and initiatives for the protection of children and the values of sport and her strong attachment to Italy,” particularly through her work with the Fondation Princesse Charlène de Monaco. The Order of the Star of Italy, known until 2011 as the Order of the Star of Italian Solidarity, is presented to individuals who promote friendly and cooperative relations between Italy and other nations.

The reception at the embassy was also attended by members of a number of Monaco’s highest officials, including the President of the Crown Council, the President of the Council of State and the Minister of State, as well as Italians living in the Principality.

    The Order of the Star of Italy is not the highest Italian Orde but is “just” ranked 4th.

    1 – Ordine al Merito della Repubblica Italiana
    2 – Ordine Militare d’Italia
    3 – Ordine al Merito del Lavoro
    4 – Ordine della Stella d’Italia
    5 – Ordine di Vittorio Veneto
