Photos: Princess Charlene visits Monaco’s newest arrivals

In the days following Mother’s Day, Princess Charlene made a special visit to the maternity ward at the Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace to meet the Principality’s newest arrivals and congratulate their parents. 

Princess Charlene’s annual visit to the Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace’s maternity ward is becoming something of a tradition.

It was here that the Princess gave birth to her own children, the nine-year-old twins Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, on 10th December 2014, and she has become a regular visitor in the years since, often timing a visit with Mother’s Day. 

Looking effortlessly at ease during her most recent visit at the end of May, the Princess was in her element as she spoke tenderly with the new parents and was introduced to Monaco’s newest members of the population.  

Dressed in a soft, powder pink suit for the occasion, Princess Charlene also made sure to save some time for the nursing staff and doctors on duty that day.

A series of heartwarming photographs were later released by the Palais Princier de Monaco with the caption: “On 31st May, Princess Charlene, Vice-President of the Monaco Red Cross, went to the maternity ward of the Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace to meet the newborns and congratulate the young parents.” 

In other baby-related news, the Mairie de Monaco’s Marjorie Crovetto, Deputy Mayor in charge of Environment and Sustainable Development, and Jacques Pastor, Deputy Mayor, paid a visit to the Pali forest in the Alpes-Maritimes town of Cuébris on 27th May.

For the last 15 years, the Mairie de Monaco has been collaborating with the National Forestry Office to plant one tree for every baby born in the Principality.
