The Principality of Monaco is preparing to welcome the Olympic Flame, which will be carried by six Monegasque torchbearers on Tuesday, June 18, 2024.

At 2:15 p.m., in front of the statue of Juan Manuel Fangio in Port Hercule, Formula 1 champion Charles Leclerc will be the first torchbearer. The Flame will then be carried successively by skier Alexandra Coletti, table tennis player Xiaoxin Yang and bobsledder Rudy Rinaldi, who will hand it over to HSH Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene in front of the statue of Malizia on Palace Square.

The Olympic Flame will follow the route outlined here.

It will be visible to the public at the start of the Relay, along Havenlaan, on the corner of Place du March and Paleisplein.

While waiting to welcome the torchbearers to Palace Square, spectators can watch a montage of archive footage designed and produced by the Audiovisual Institute and the Palace Archives of Monaco. This montage is reminiscent of Monaco's participation in the Olympic Games in Paris 100 years ago, of the bronze medal awarded to the Monegasque architect Julien Mdecin (1894-1986) for his urban drawings (a discipline that was then on the program ), John B. Kelly's title of Olympic champion in rowing, as well as the first passage of the Olympic Flame in Monaco 56 years ago, on the way to the 1968 Grenoble Winter Olympics.

On the occasion of this event and throughout the Olympic period, the upper gate (dated 1533) of the Rampe Major, on the route of the Olympic Flame, will be decorated on both sides with a large visual reminder of John B. Kelly (1889 – 1960), father of Princess Grace and grandfather of HSH Prince Albert II, won a gold medal in rowing (double sculls) at the Paris Olympic Games 100 years ago, in 1924.

Recommendations for spectators

People wishing to witness the passage of the Olympic Flame are advised to be aware of road closures in the area between 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM. Pedestrians cannot access the Rampe Major between 1:00 PM and 2:45 PM, cannot walk within the barrier-bound zones of the route and use the pedestrian crossings along this route, especially at the bottom of Avenue de la Porte Neuve between 2:00 PM and 2:45 PM .

To guarantee the safety of the event, filter points will be placed along the entire route, as well as at the entrances to the Palace Square.

Ahead of Monaco, it is reported that the flame will make a stop in the mountain village of Valberg. The next destination after the Principality is Antibes-Juan-les-Pins.

A royal history

Monaco's Prince Albert II is the president of the Monegasque Olympic Committee and has been a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) since 1985.

Prince Albert has competed in five Winter Olympics as part of Monaco's bobsleigh team. He himself first carried the Olympic flame in 1996, prior to the Summer Olympics in Atlanta. The Prince has been the torchbearer for both the Summer and Winter Games on nine other occasions.
Princess Charlene, herself a former Olympian, swam for South Africa at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
