The 58-year-old monarch, accompanied by his son, Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan, 19, led prayers at the royal palace in Sale, adjacent to Rabat.

He then "continued on to the ritual of sacrifice", the official MAP news agency said.

It added that the ceremony took place "privately and with very limited participation" to respect COVID-19 preventive measures.

On June 16, the monarch's doctor said King Mohammed VI had tested positive for COVID-19 but without exhibiting symptoms and recommended "a period of rest for a few days."

The king continued to send protocol and other messages during his recovery.
