On August 5, 2011, Their Serene Highnesses Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco attended the 63rd Annual Red Cross Gala Ball at the Sporting d’Eté Club in Monte-Carlo.
According to the French newspaper, L’Express (yes, that paper), approximately:
…800 guests paid 1,000 Euros to attend the fundraiser gala event. After dinner the guests listened to Joe Cocker, a British singer with the gravelly voice. The Monaco resident, Shirley Bassey, was responsible for organizing the evening and a raffle with lots of prestige.
The princess looked lovely in a dress by Akris; moreover, it’s nice to see the Océan Tiara (as a necklace) for the for the first time on Princess Charlene. Oh, yeah, Prince Albert looked nice too. Anyway… Other members of the princely family of Monaco attended including H.R.H. Princess Caroline, H.S.H. Princess Stephanie, and members from the de Massey as well as the Wittstock family.
