Kate will be in Belgium later today and tomorrow for engagements the centenary commemorations of the Battles of Ypres. But before then, let’s look at Princess Charlene‘s recent fashion and Prince Harry playing with kids.
I haven’t talked about Princess Charlene since back in March, so here’s an update on some of her recent fashion because she looks pretty great here.
On July 28, Prince Albert and Charlene attended the Monaco Red Cross Ball like they do every year. Charlene’s fashion at this event is pretty hit and miss, but this year she chose a metallic, silver jumpsuit from Atelier Versace which I’m totally here for.
In a tweet, Versace called this a “gown”, but it clearly has pants so I’m sticking with jumpsuit.
I’m kind of over the short hair on her, but I think the simple jewelry worked very well with the metallic jumpsuit.
On July 21, Charlene attended the IAAF Diamond League Meeting Herculis 2017 where she presented the medals to the winners.
To the sporting event, Charlene wore an emerald green, one-shoulder cape gown with a large beaded necklace. Bit of an odd choice for the occasion, but the color is different for her so that’s interesting.
On June 18, Charlene and Albert attended the ‘The Bold and The Beautiful’ 30th Years anniversary during the 57th Monte Carlo TV Festival.
Charlene wore a red gown with a very deep v-neckline and a large cross necklace. I do like the gown, but I dislike the necklace.
On July 27, Albert and Charlene brought Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella to the departure ceremony for the ship Yersin which will undertake a three year scientific journey around the globe.
Albert recently spoke to People Magazine about his kids learning to swim:
“There will be two foreign visits for his children, Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques, this August. And the royal twins are already taking after their Olympic swimming mom. ‘They’re in the pool a solid two hours in the morning and again in the afternoon,’ he says. ‘I try to make their afternoon session every day.’
“Given Princess Charlene’s instruction (as well as her foundation dedicated to water safety) the pair could swim long before they could walk and their aquatic progress has surprised their father. ‘Jacques doesn’t want to wear his armbands. The other day he swam eight feet unassisted and Gabriella isn’t far behind him,’ he says. ‘The pool we have at Roc Agel isn’t an infinity pool and he’s able to get himself in and out of the pool without anyone’s assistance.’
“Though Albert admits the prospect of his 2-year-old twins taking on the water is worrisome for any parent, he trusts in the skills they’ve already developed. ‘They’ve had all sorts of water safety instruction, including the self-survival course when they were 8 months.'”
That same interview, Albert also spoke at length about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (for some random reason). I covered that portion of the interview over at Meghan Markle Review.
On July 28, Prince Harry visited StreetGames’ Fit and Fed at Central Park East Ham in London. The Fit and Fed campaign aims to provide children and young people with free access to activity sessions, with lunch included, throughout the summer holidays.
