Prince Moulay Rachid paves the way for continuity of the institution of monarchy
Morocco, August 20, 2006 - His Royal Highness Prince Moulay Rachid marked today the fifty-three anniversary of the Revolution of the King and the People, a landmark in the country's history, which illustrates the heroic struggle of the Alaouite Throne and Moroccan people against French occupation.
On August 20, 1953 the French colonial authorities exiled Alaouite Royal Family, after the Late King Mohammed V - grandfather of Prince Moulay Rachid - refused to sign decrees consecrating French domination over Morocco.
Prince Moulay Rachid has been heavily involved in spearheading many of the nation's initiatives and projects that contribute the great deal to the development and progress of Morocco.
The Prince has become a pioneer in the effort to promote the dialog among civilization, and has liaised with statesmen to ensure the evolution beyond the boundaries.
His Royal Highness efforts are advocating a continuity of Morocco’s history, society, institution and the monarchy, the core stated by his grandfather the Late King Mohammed V.
