King Mohammed VI Cancels Official Celebration of his Birthday

The Ministry of the Royal Household, Protocol and Chancellery announced that King Mohammed VI will no longer celebrate his birthday at an official ceremony at the royal palace.

In a statement issued Tuesday Aug. 13, the Ministry of the Royal Household, Protocol and Chancellery announced that King Mohammed VI has given the order to no longer organize, from this year, the official celebration at the Royal Palace of his birthday, which takes place on August 21st.

 

The Monarch’s birthday celebration was also an opportunity to celebrate Youth Day, to pay tribute to youths’ contribution to the country’s development march.

In 2018, the official celebration of Youth Day had also been canceled as it coincided with Eid Al Adha.

The announcement made Tuesday comes a few weeks after the Ministry of the Royal Household called on institutions across Morocco to commemorate Throne Day (July 30) without any extravagance.

King Mohammed was born on August 21, 1963 and was enthroned in July 1999 following the death of his father King Hassan II.
