Princess Charlene makes public return for Easter pic and mass

Princess Charlene makes public return for Easter pic and mass

By Stephanie Horsman - April 18, 2022

An Easter photo released by the Palace shows a smiling Princely family with a vibrant looking Princess Charlene, who has made her debut back into public life since returning to Monaco in November.

Good news all around this weekend for the Palace. First, the Princely family were photographed together in a series of beautiful snaps for their official Easter portraits.

These are the first photos of the family published this year, and it was with a sigh of collective relief that Princess Charlene was featured looking healthy and sporting a chic pixie cut and wearing a lovely flowy springtime dress.

In fact, the entire family looked like something out of a glamorous 1930’s film.

The seven-year-old twins, Hereditary Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, were as adorable as ever with the little Prince in casual beige trousers and a taupe jeans jacket, and Gabriella in a gold dress fit for a princess. Prince Albert II looked casually smart in a white shirt and cream blazer with no tie.

The photos were shared by the Palace on social media as well as by Princess Charlene on her personal Instagram account along with the caption: Happy Easter, together with a heart emoji.

Another snap was taken as the family attended Easter services at the Palantine Chapel with Father César Penzo leading the mass.

The weekend also brought word that Prince Albert II is free of Covid with a press release declaring that “having just been diagnosed negative for a Covid-19 PCR test, Prince Albert II was able to resume all of his activities today.”

The public learned last week that the Sovereign had been reinfected with the virus and, in compliance with current rules, went into isolation, working and carrying out duties remotely from home.
