The style Serene Highness has an antiquity equal to that of Highness. However, in some, excluding the Latin language countries, Highness was considered a higher treatment than Serene Highness.


The reigning Prince of Monaco, Albert II, is addressed as His Serene Highness. His sister Princess Stéphanie is also referred to as Her Serene Highness. Another sister Princess Caroline was also styled Her Serene Highness prior to her 1999 marriage, but is styled Royal Highness since then. In French, both male and female versions are Son Altesse Sérénissime (S.A.S.), which translates, literally, as "His/Her Most Serene Highness".
