The 7th Monaco International Roses Competition ended in a new creative beauty.

The Roseraie Princesse Grace (Princess Grace Rose Garden) has recently celebrated its 40th anniversary in the presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco and H.R.H. Princess of Hanover and the main authorities from the Prince's Government and the City Hall.

To praise this special commemoration, the International Jury of the most popular annual Rose Competition at its seventh edition focused on hybridisation and breeding of new roses. The rose JEAN CARLES ® EVEpiweet by Eve - Rateau, was awarded the prestigious prize, the Piaget Rose Trophy, offered by the Manufacture Piaget, together with the Coupe du Parfum, given by the Mairie de Monaco (Monaco City Hall). The rose MADAME® EVEvilady by Eve - Rateau got the Coup de Coeur (Favourite Prize) golden medal by the will of Amis de la Roseraie Princesse Grace (Friends of the Princess Grace Rose Garden).

Thanks to the support of Princess Grace Rose Garden and the Prince’s Government, the contest conquered the social network. The rose Romaneche la Montagne ® by Marie-Françoise Dorieux (No. 58) was the most voted on social media and was awarded the Public Award, collecting 1,000 votes.

H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco and H.R.H. the Princess of Hanover attended the event welcomed by Yves Piaget, President of the Association of Friends of the Rose Garden. A special tribute was paid to Princess Grace of Monaco, the inspiring Muse of this garden and H.S.H. Prince Rainier III of Monaco who conceived the creation of the whole district of Fontvieille.

The Closing Rose Competition Award Ceremony was a great feast with a set of creative stages (Mr One Teas piece of art and watercolour exhibition by Tony Szabo) leisure activities (treasure hunt, guided tour and music performances by Cantin d'a Roca and the Orchestra of the Carabiniers du Prince). A unique opportunity to contemplate the beauty of Nature. ***
