Prince Jacques, who will be two years old in December, was the undoubted star of the show at the traditional Monegasque picnic on Saturday. Held, according to custom, at the Parc Princesse-Antoinette, this annual event every September is an opportunity for all of Monaco’s citizens to meet and mingle with the Princely family.
On Friday, the Princess was in Geneva to mark World First Aid Day with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). A 2016 Red Cross Federation goodwill ambassador for first aid, the former Olympic swimmer said, “Today, we would like to remind the world that children are capable of saving lives — of themselves and others around them if they are equipped with first aid training.”
“I lost my cousin to drowning when he was five years old and I have some friends that have lost their children to drowning too,” she also commented.
The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation was founded in 2012 to save lives by putting an end to drowning.
