Robbie Williams may have been the headline attraction at Saturday’s Red Cross Gala in Monaco, but Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene were the biggest hits on the night.
Some 800 prestigious guests, including Monaco’s Princely couple and their niece, Camille Gottlieb, headed to the illustrious Salle des Etoiles on Saturday 29th July for the 74th edition of the ever-elegant Gala Croix-Rouge, which raises funds for the Monegasque branch of the well-established charity.
The night was a particularly colourful affair, and not just due to the vibrant colour scheme picked for the venue’s décor and table settings. British pop superstar Robbie Williams added an extra layer of boldness to the event, rocking the stage with a series of his greatest hits and really getting the party started after the traditional money-raising tombola.
Prince Albert, who celebrated 40 years as President of the Monaco Red Cross just last year, and his wife Princess Charlene, who holds the important role of vice president of the organisation, were also stars of the show. The exquisitely dressed couple beamed as they led attendees onto the dancefloor hand-in-hand, and were later pictured with Williams and his wife, Ayda Field.
The amount raised in the name of the Red Cross is yet to be announced, but given the smiles on the night, the event was certainly a success.
