Princess Charlene returns triumphant to Monaco’s National Day celebrations

After a two-year absence from Monaco’s National Day celebrations Princess Charlene returned to the palace balcony along with her husband on Saturday Prince Albert and her 8 year old twins Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella. Corresponding persons, other members of the extended Grimaldi clan, including Albert’s sisters Princess Stephanie and Princess Caroline and their children, were present for a 90-minute Te Deum service before driving through the streets of Monte Carlo.

Charlene wore a long white coat by Akris and a hat by a milliner Stephen Jones. Afterwards, she shared a picture of the children in the palace on her Instagram account. For the first time Jacques wore the traditional police uniform and cap and Gabriella wore a red coat and black hat. (The uneven fringes appear to be growing back from the haircut she got before school started in September.) As the children went outside to the ceremony, they also donned the Grimaldi Order for the first time.

This weekend’s activities mark the first time since 2019 that Charlene has been celebrating Monaco’s annual holiday. In 2020, the celebrations were canceled due to COVID-19, and in 2021, Charlene canceled her performance due to her prolonged recovery from an ear, nose and throat infection. She returned to Monaco in early November 2021 after spending at least five months in her native South Africa due to her illness. She was still recovering when she arrived in Monaco and later traveled to a clinic in Switzerland to continue her recovery. She returned to her royal duties in May 2022.

Later that evening, the adults of the family attended a gala at the Grimaldi Forum in Monte Carlo. Charlene wore a navy blue dress by Terence Bray, one of her longtime favorites, and accessorized it with a sash in the colors of the Monaco flag and a Star of the Order of Grimaldi. Albert’s niece Charlotte Casiraghi also attended, wearing a Chanel tweed dress.

Two weeks ago, Albert and Charlene traveled to New York City for the annual Princess Grace Awards gala, which honored a selection of winners in theatre, dance and film. There, Charlene was the first to wear the Grace diamond, a 1.79-carat pink diamond set in a necklace by the jeweler Lorenz Baumer and high-end jewelry brand Maison Mazerea.
