Prince Albert's elegant South African companion Charlene Wittstock is very much looking the part of Monaco's first lady these days.

At a ball this weekend Charlene, a champion swimmer on her country's national team, wowed onlookers in a ravishing satin creation as she hosted 400 guests alongside her royal love.

The gown bore a striking print of a pandaon its full skirt, proclaiming the purpose of the evening, which was to raise money for the World Wildlife Fund.

To finish off the charming look, Charlene - who was also Albert's date for this year's annual Rose Ball - had her long blonde locks gathered at the nape of her neck in a chic up-do.

By bringing her glamour and wit to bear in support of the charity Charlene is already showing a knack for drawing attention to her beau's concerns. It's a talent that will stand her in good stead if and when the couple decide to make their relationship official.
