Chanel's Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2022 Show opened with the equestrian, 35, wearing a black tweed jacket as she trotted down the catwalk on her horse.

Charlotte, who is the daughter of Princess Caroline of Hanover and the late Stefano Casiraghi, is a Chanel ambassador.

Charlotte began competing in equestrian sports as a teenager

Some royals are no stranger to the runway and as well as sitting in the coveted front-row, some have even showed off their modelling prowess.

Prince William and Prince Harry's cousin, Lady Amelia Windsor, turned heads at the Dior show during Paris Fashion Week on Monday. The 26-year-old made her catwalk debut for Dolce & Gabbana in 2017.

Prince Nikolai of Denmark, 22, also appeared on the runway as Danish outerwear brand, Rains, made its debut at Paris Men's Fashion Week.
