2015-03-24 15:05

Monaco - British pop star Robbie Williams will be the star turn at a July concert in Monaco to fete Prince Albert II's decade on the throne, the palace announced on Monday.

The 12 July event will also feature performers Lemar and Justin Caldwell in an exclusive event for the some 37 000 residents of the world's second smallest state behind the Vatican.

Monaco consists of less than 2km² of rocky territory carved out of France's Mediterranean coast that has only 8 000 nationals.

The prince and his wife Princess Charlene will meet their citizens on 11 July for a cocktail party.

Albert is the product of a fairytale marriage between Prince Rainier and the US movie star Grace Kelly.
