Princess Charlene cheers on kids at rugby tournament

Princess Charlene cheers on kids at rugby tournament

By Cassandra Tanti - May 8, 2022

Princess Charlene was joined by her husband Prince Albert and children Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella on Saturday as she showed her support for the kids participating in the Sainte Dévote Rugby Tournament.

The 10th edition of the Sainte Dévote Rugby Tournament was held at the Louis II Stadium on Saturday, organised by the Monaco Rugby Federation in partnership with the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation.

The international U-12 Rugby Sevens tournament welcomed 16 teams from 14 countries: Andorra, Belgium, United Arab Emirates, Ecuador, Spain, France, Georgia, Mauritius, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Morocco, Monaco, and Switzerland.

Together with Prince Albert and the twins, Princess Charlene watched on as the young teams fought it out for the 2022 title. Also present was her brother and General Secretary of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation Gareth Wittstock.

After a day of competition, the Montpellier Hérault Rugby team won the international tournament trophy after dominating the final 5-1 against the Apollo Perelini Rugby Skills Academy of Dubai.

The tournament is named after the patron saint of both the Principality and Corsica.

It was Princess Charlene’s second official engagement this year and marks a notable return to public life after a difficult year.
