New outing for the Grimaldis. On Sunday, June 5, the 2022 edition of the Riviera Water Bike Challenge, a major sporting event organized by the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, got underway at the Principality’s Yacht Club. If the godmother of the association did not honor her presence, tested positive to Covid 19 the day before, her husband, Albert II, was at the appointment surrounded by his adorable twins to enjoy the sea air and encourage sports celebrities mobilized to raise funds for the prevention of drowning.
Passionate about water sports, the son of Rainier III and Grace Kelly went to the Monaco Yacht Club last March, this time alone, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the label “Monaco, capital of yachting” as part of the Monaco Ocean Week. But this Sunday, June 5, the prince did not have to be ashamed of the presence of Gabriella Thérèse Marie and Jacques Honoré Rainier, dressed in their Sunday best and keeping a low profile in front of the onlookers and the stars present on the Louis II quay. A little more dissipated, Albert of Monaco made the show, photographed alongside his friend Victoria Silvstedt, close to the Monegasque princely couple and especially to Charlene, “a great girl”, as she had indicated in the columns of Télé Loisirs in 2010.
