Formula 1 racing may be synonymous with fast cars, but in Monaco it’s the royal family who set the tone on the Grand Prix circuit.

Princess Charlene made her first visit since 2019 to the Monaco Formula 1 event on Sunday, alongside her husband Prince Albert and their twins Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques.

The former Olympic swimmer delighted racing fashion fans in a powder blue one-piece with a reverse collar designed by Terrence Bray.

Speaking at a Monte Carlo Fashion Week event earlier in the week, the Princess revealed Sunday’s run was historic for the Royal Family. It was the first time that 7-year-old Prince Jacques had taken the lap of honor with his father before the lights went out.

“This year, Jacques will do the lap of honor with his dad for the first time. It will be a great pride for us,” she told local publication Monaco Matin.

Princess Gabriella also participated in the event by helping her mother to present the trophies to the 3 best pilots of the day.

On Saturday, Charlene and Albert took an informal stroll during qualifying, thanking volunteers, waving to fans and mingling with drivers and celebrities, including Patrick Dempsey.
