Princess Charlene in Akris for Monaco Picnic & Prince Albert Takes the Ice Bucket Challenge!

Proud parents-to-be Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco made an appearance for the traditional Monégasque traditional picnic at Parc Princesse Antoinette.

Albert and Charlene arrived arm-in-arm for the annual event. Charlene looked stylish in a deep blue shirtdress by her go-to designer Akris. The Princess has yet to be photographed wearing maternity wear and judging by her slender silhouette it's likely she'll remain in her usual pieces for some time yet.

For last year's picnic, Palace seamstresses designed a version of the national costume for the Princess. I have to say I thought it such fun and a lovely nod to the event. Perhaps she'll wear it again next year.

In other news, Prince Albert has accepted various nominations to take the Ice Bucket Challenge. I love that he did this, as it's all in aid of such a worthy cause and it's nice to see an informal side to the royals. You can view the video of the official Facebook Page.

    Hi Charlotte, delighted to see the Royal Digest back with Princess Charlene, one of my favourite royals, looking healthy and very elegant. Loved the national outfit they made for her. And the ice bucket video was great fun!

    I always find it sad that there is so much emphasis on how sad Charlene supposedly looks. I think it is possible she is just more reserved of expression than some other royal ladies. She looks quite happy here. It must be a relief to have fallen pregnant since there has been so much talk about it.

    Charlene does look tired but that comes with pregnancy. Love the traditional dress on her, that was a very respectful statement.

  3. She never looks happy but I don't know how she could be with a man like Albert but I truly hope she does find happiness with the birth of her new child and I hope Albert will be faithful for once.
