Amid the lockdown, the Prince has kept himself busy with things he has not done in a long time, including reading some books and magazine articles. Prince Albert was diagnosed with COVID-19 back in March.

At the time, the monarch revealed that he felt okay except for a slight fever, cough, and runny nose. Considering his previous health history of fighting pneumonia, the Prince explained that he knew he was susceptible to have complications.

He added that even though older people had more chances of getting infected with the novel coronavirus, it could affect younger people as well.

In November, Monaco celebrated its National Day. In adherence to the COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, the celebration happened without crowds, fireworks, and the royal family's traditional wave.
