This week Charlotte Casiraghi found the perfect way to recover from her recent car accident in Italy; chilling out in the upmarket holiday destination of Saint Tropez.

Striking brunette Charlotte, the 22-year-old daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco and the late Italian industrialist Stefano Casiraghi, made the most of the French Riviera sunshine in a light floral dress and wedge sandals.

A white bandage wrapped around her left wrist was the only sign of her recent mishap, which occured in Piemont, Italy, on June 6 when a vehicle she was in with her long-term boyfriend Alex Dellal collided with another car. It is thought the Monegasque royal broke a small bone in her hand.

The granddaughter of Princess Grace, who was joined on her French break by a group of friends, looked relaxed and care-free sauntering through the streets of St Tropez's old town.

Charlotte is not the only famous tourist in St Tropez at the moment. Boris Becker and his new wife Lilly Kerssenberg are honeymooning there on a luxury yacht after their recent nuptials in Saint Moritz, Switzerland. The celeb hot spot has also been visited this month by stars including Joan Collins and Richard Branson.
