Prince Albert and Princess Charlene attended the World Rugby Awards at the Salle des Etoiles on Sunday evening, posing before the awards ceremony itself with many of rugby’s top players and officials.

The couple were pictured with alongside Chairman of World Rugby Bill Baumont, Vice-Chairman Augustin Pichot and CEO of World Rugby Brett Gosper.

Eddie Jones became the first England head coach since Sir Clive Woodward in 2003 to be named World Rugby coach of the year. Jones dedicated his award to his players.

World Rugby main awards: Men’s Player of the Year Beauden Barret (New Zealand); Women’s Player of the Year Portia Woodman (New Zealand); Team of the Year New Zealand Women’s XV; Coach of the Year Eddie Jones (England); Men’s Sevens Player of the Year Perry Baker (US); Women’s Sevens Player of the Year Michaela Blyde (New Zealand).

Before the awards began, Princess Charlene, a keen rugby fan, shared a photo on Instagram spurring on Monaco’s rugby team ahead of its historic participation in the Rugby Sevens in Dubai this week.

The bi-national team – Monaco Impi – composed of five players from the Monaco national team and seven South African international players is a first for Monaco rugby and reflects the many exchanges over several years between the Monegasque Rugby Federation and the South African counterpart.
