The young princess and her mum will be attending the Monte-Carlo Fashion Week, and the doting mum made sure her daughter was ready for the momentous event. The royal shared a photo of herself cuddling up with her young daughter and they both looked so elegant in a pair of show-stopping frocks. Charlene wore a gorgeous white suit with sheer sleeves and large earrings.

Meanwhile, Gabriella was the centre of attention, with a show-stealing frock that looked like it had come straight off of an artist's easel with its bold clash of colours.

The royal is a doting mum to her twins

During their time out, Charlene was pictured being a doting mum towards the twins as she walked trackside with them, and protectively put her arms on son, Jacques.

In one photo, she couldn't help but attempt to embarrass them, wrapping her arms around both of them and planting a kiss on the side of Jacques' face.

The Princess, alongside Jacques and Gabriella, also met with some of the competing teams, including one from Barcelona and another from Andorra.

And there was a special treat for the seven-year-old royals as while on the balcony they were treated to a visit from the mascot of the competition, a seagull wearing a rugby T-shirt and pilot's hat.
