Princess Charlene of Monaco looked sleek in black as she enjoyed cocktails with her husband and guests in the palace gardens.

The Princess, who has recently returned to the public eye after months of absence due to ‘health issues’, joined her husband Prince Albert to meet with guests yesterday evening.  

The Princess paired her black, frilled dress with a statement silver necklace, which complemented her signature pixie-crop. 

Her dewy make-up made her complexion flawless, yet the Princess, who has been absent at many events due to ‘health issues’ seemed serious as she posed for photos.

In photos posted on Instagram by the Palais Princier de Monaco Instagram account, Charlene posed with her husband and guests in the gardens. 

The caption read: ‘LL.AA.SS. Prince Albert and Princess Charlene received, in the gardens of the Prince’s Palace, some guests of the Van Cleef & Arpels House for a cocktail.

‘On this occasion the guests were able to discover the new Alhambra creations in support of the Princess Grace Foundation-USA.’

‘The foundation is an enduring link between Grace Kelly’s America and Prince Rainier’s Monaco, the Princess Grace Foundation-USA enhances her iconic legacy and builds upon the connection between the Principality of Monaco, the Princely Family, and the United States.’

Princess Charlene and her husband Prince Albert of Monaco posted the summery snaps to Instagram where the royal is seen in the center, with her blonde hair perfectly coiffed

Princess Charlene makes headlines often, from her days as an Olympic swimmer and her recent health issues to her marriage to Prince Albert of Monaco.

The 44-year-old has been out of the spotlight for almost a year, with a ‘medical emergency’ prompting her to take an extended leave of absence.

This week, the Princess delighted tourists by making a surprise appearance during a guided tour of the Prince’s Palace. 

The royal, 44, who shares seven-year-old twins Gabriella and Jacques with husband Prince Albert, 64, posed for photos and chatted to visitors taking in the grandeur of the dramatic fortress.

The Princess Charlene posed with children during a palace tour earlier this week much to the delight of visitors 

She has only recently re-entered public life after largely remaining quiet over the last 18 months, but rumours have swirled that she is receiving £10million a year to appear at her husband’s side at official engagements.

Leading French media reported the ruler of the Mediterranean principality was doing everything possible to keep Charlene ‘at his side at public events’.

However the Prince recently hit back at the reports, saying they had caused him ‘hurt’.

He told French Sunday paper Journal de Dimanche: ‘We missed the princess a lot. And we were obviously hurt by the malicious rumours that were peddled,’

‘But we were able to stay united despite the distance, we spoke to each other often.’
