The decision comes a few months after the Ministry of Household ordered institutions to be frugal in celebrating the Throne Day.
Rabat – The Ministry of Royal palaces has announced that King Mohammed VI will no longer celebrate his birthday with the official annual ceremony at the royal palace.
The celebration is traditionally held every August 21. The day is also a landmark to celebrate Youth Day which commemorates the contribution of youth in Morocco.
The decision comes a few months after the Ministry of the Royal Household called on institutions across Morocco to commemorate the Throne Day without undue extravagance on July 30.
July 30 marked 20 years since the start of King Mohammed VI’s reign.
The King was born on August 21, 1963 and will celebrate his 56th birthday this month.
