Bicentenary of the Palace Guards Corps
The Palace Guards Corps was established on 8 December 1817 by the Prince de Valentinois, Honoré Grimaldi, Hereditary Prince of Monaco and Administrator of the Principality, in the name of his father, Prince Honoré IV. In 1904, Prince Albert I, satisfied with the policing and guard duties carried out by the “carabiniers”, entrusted them with the security of the Palace and Royal Family. The Ordinance specified that “the service provided by the Company of Guards shall henceforth be provided by the Palace Guards”. The unit was given the name “Compagnie des Carabiniers du Prince”.
