Princess Charlene of Monaco looked stunning as she showed off her new haircut and impressive art skills while out with her husband Albert II and children Jacques and Gabriella.

The royal, 45, wore a simple fawn-coloured blazer with matching trousers and a cream top for the family day out in Monaco.

Wearing her new dark pixie cut smooth and shiny, the mum-of-two accessorised the look with minimal makeup and diamond earrings.

Adding a slight edge to her outfit, Charlene finished by adding dark nail polish to her fingernails.

Meanwhile, her husband, 65, cut a dapper figure in a smart blue suit as he posed for photos with his wife.

The Princess, her husband, Albert II, 65, and their twin children Jacques and Gabriella, eight, were out to celebrate the birth of the late Rainier III. 

The Principality of Monaco is celebrating the centenary of the birth of Rainier III, whose reign was marked by strong urban development.

Albert II, the son of iconic American movie star Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III, has been married to Princess Charlene since their wedding in 2011.

The couple were also snapped with Princess Stephanie of Monaco, 58, who wore a cool white suit for the occasion.

It comes as Charlene recently showed off her new look while stepping out for the Grand Prix alongside other members of the Royal Family.

She sported new hair do as she attended the annual motoring event, which is held on the Circuit de Monaco, with Prince Albert.

In a bold move away from her trademark platinum crop, Charlene sported rich, shining dark auburn hair, still in her signature elfin short style.

The royal, who appeared deep in thought as she was photographed standing next to her husband, paired the dramatic new ‘do with a chic maxi dress in a full-length classic shift-style cut, featuring rainbow coloured stripes down the front.

The couple’s other child, Princess Gabriella, also had a go at making art with her mum who was happy to help out 

 Her locks were simply styled into a side parting, to show off her simple diamond studs, and her elegant make-up look comprising a fresh base and light brown smokey eyes.

Meanwhile, Prince Albert was also smart, donning slacks with a classic blazer, crisp shirt and tie.

Also at the Grand Prix was Grace Kelly’s granddaughter Charlotte Casiraghi, 36, accompanied by her husband, Dimitri Rassam, and her son Raphaël, eight.

Meanwhile, Grace Kelly’s grandson, Louis Ducruet, 30, was also in attendance with his wife, Marie Chevallier, also 30.

Pierre Casiraghi, 35, and his wife, Beatrice Borromeo, 37, also attended, alongside Andrea Casiraghi, 38, and his Tatiana Santo Domingo, 39. The pair were picture with their son, Maximilian and daughter India.

Princess Charlene and Prince Albert’s outing followed a public appearance together earlier this month, when they attended a Buckingham Palace reception hosted by King Charles on the eve of his coronation, before attending the Westminster Abbey ceremony itself.

Their London appearance followed the couple stepping out in public in April with their children for the first time since the palace was forced to deny rumours the couple’s marriage was on the rocks.

The family looked picture-perfect as Charlene put her arm around eight-year-old Prince Jacques and placed her other hand on Princess Gabriella’s shoulders as they went to a match as part of the Sainte Devote Rugby Tournament.

The sweet family appearance came weeks after a French publication reported Princess Charlene and Prince Albert were in the process of a divorce – something the palace has strenuously denied.

After ROYAUTÉ reported their 12-year marriage was coming to an end, a spokesman said the couple ‘formally deny the malicious rumours peddled by the magazine’.

In recent weeks the couple have put on a united front at events around the principality, including a memorial mass service for Prince Albert’s late father, Prince Rainier, earlier this month.

However, Princess Charlene fuelled rumours her marriage was on the rocks when she was spotted on a solo trip to Milan last month without wearing her wedding ring.

She later returned to Monaco and attended an awards ceremony alongside her husband, and was once again wearing the ring.

However, later that day, the couple made a joint appearance at the Monte Carlo Woman of the Year awards, where Charlene appeared to be wearing her wedding ring – pouring cold water on the split rumours.

The plot seemed to thicken at the next royal engagement, when Prince Albert attended the Rose Ball in Monaco without his wife present.
