Monaco’s Princess Charlene took time out of her busy schedule as mom to six-month-old twins Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriellato mingle with a stellar lineup of small-screen stars at the 55th annual Monte Carlo Television Festival.
Dressed in a showstopping, long-sleeved white gown, Charlene and husband Prince Albert welcomed TV actors from hit shows like Chicago P.D., Vikings, Sons ofAnarchy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Texas Rising to the Prince’s Palace. Actress Amanda Schull was all smiles posing with the royal couple and her 12 Monkeys co-star Aaron Stanford. The breakout series, based on the film starring Brad Pitt, is set to kick off production on its second season in Toronto later this year.
Earlier in the week, Charlene presented actress Patricia Arquette with the Crystal Nymph trophy during the festival’s opening night ceremonies. The Oscar-winning actress was honoured for her work in hit series like Medium, Boardwalk Empire and, most recently, CSI: Cyber. The prestigious award has been given to some of Hollywood’s finest talents, including last year’s recipient, Canada’s own Donald Sutherland.
New parents Charlene and Albert have kept an active calendar of engagements since welcoming their children in December, 2014. The last time they appeared in public with their babies was in early May, when the Grimaldi clan gathered together for Jacques and Gabriella’s christening.
Next up for the Monégasque royals is the lavish wedding of Princess Caroline’s son, Pierre Casiraghi, to Italian journalist Beatrice Borromeo. The young lovebirds will say "I Do" in a civil service at the end of July before holding a larger ceremony and reception on Beatrice’s family’s island on August 1.
