To pay tribute to Rainier III, the princely family was gathered in the cathedral of Monaco this Wednesday, April 5th. Complices, Charlene of Monaco and Charlotte Casiraghi had a tender gesture which did not pass unnoticed in front of the photographers present at the event.
A moving religious ceremony was held in the cathedral of Monaco this Wednesday, April 5. Before celebrating the centenary of the birth of Prince Rainier III with great pomp, the Monegasque princely family attended a mass in tribute to the prince builder. On April 6, 2005, the father of Albert II died at the age of 81. To honor his memory, the Grimaldi clan was gathered. The Monegasque sovereign was well surrounded. His wife Charlene was seen alongside his sisters, Caroline of Hanover and Stephanie of Monaco, who is fortunate enough to make her debut in the role of grandmother. Almost all of his nieces and nephews had also made the trip: Andrea, Pierre and Charlotte Casiraghi, as well as Camille Gottlieb and Pauline Ducruet. Louis Ducruet absent, was undoubtedly with his wife Marie, who has just given birth to a baby girl.

On their way out of the church service, the Grimaldis stopped for a moment on the square. This gave Charlotte Casiraghi time to warmly embrace Charlene of Monaco. A tender gesture immortalized by the photographers on the spot. The two women appreciate each other, so much so that Charlene of Monaco had even been chosen by the daughter of Caroline of Hanover to be the godmother of Raphael Elmaleh.
Charlene of Monaco and Charlotte Casiraghi show their great complicity
This is not the first time that the two women show their beautiful complicity in public. During the end of year celebrations last year, Charlene of Monaco and Charlotte Casiraghi had strolled together in the alleys of the Christmas village. Walking side by side, the two mothers had exchanged smiles and complicit looks. On this occasion, they were accompanied by the twins Jacques and Gabriella, happy to discover the Christmas decorations, magic in their eyes.
