When it comes to royals, Princess Charlene of Monaco is always one to up her game when making a public appearance.

The beautiful blonde recently attended a lavish event in Beverly Hills to honour the late Grace Kelly.

Grace Kelly was actually Charlene’s mother-in-law, so the event held a special place in her heart.

The former Olympic swimmer easily stole the show as she walked the red carpet of the Princess Grace Awards Gala.

The 39-year-old opted for a stunning purple sequin gown for the occasion.

The glistening design complimented Charlene’s perfect body and showed off just enough skin to keep her looking classy.

As always, her loving husband, Prince Albert II, was by her side.

The pair gushed over Albert’s mother and her legacy during the ceremony.

Prince Albert said: “It was her personality and the way she engaged with people, she touched the lives of so many around the world and not only through her acting.

“When she passed away we got calls from all over the world, from countries she hadn’t even visited. It was unbelievable and still is.”

The event aimed at raising funds for up-and-coming Hollywood talent.

For over 30 years it has poured millions into supporting young talent, with a real focus on those with a passion for dance, theatre, and acting.

Prince Albert added: “We knew it was what she wanted to do; she loved theatre, dance and film and she knew how difficult it was at the beginning of careers to make ends meet.

“She thought this would be necessary and meaningful to all these young artists to have this kind of support.”

We think Princess Grace would be proud.

An array of other stars attended the event. Most notable included Sex and the City’s Kristen Davis and heiress Chloe Green, who shocked with her ex-prisoner date, Jeremy Meeks.
