Princess Charlene Visits Carmelite Nursery School

If everyone has been following the wonderful work that the Duchess of Cambridge does with children, you’re in for a treat today: Princess Charlene has also been focusing her energy on young children lately! Just a couple days ago, Charlene had an engagement at the Carmelite Nursery School in Monaco. (Photos courtesy of Facebook.)

The princess spent the day with the youngsters, reviewing the classrooms’ various developmental centers for things such as gross/fine motor manipulation and visual arts, and most importantly, was able to see the work that the school does for non-francophone students. The school hosts students from 28 different nationalities, so having a French as a Second Language program is essential for the language skills of these adorable, budding children.

I loved Charlene’s outfit! I am always amazed at how she can combine chic and casual all at once. Her jacket is so reminiscent of the style that Charlene loves – sort of a drapey, cape-style jacket – but I certainly haven’t seen it before. It reminds me very much of the jacket she wore to the Children’s Christmas Party in December, but this is a unique piece. As for her pants, at first I thought these were black leggings, but on closer inspection they are jeans. Like I said, chic and casual all in one outfit. Love!

Hair and makeup, of course, were perfection. She paired the casual, muted ensemble with a bright lip color and simple jewelry. The children must have very much enjoyed having a princess with them at school – though many of them might have been too young to understand the significance of such a visit. But they will get it when they’re older, because undoubtedly their parents are keeping these pictures forever!

I hope you all enjoyed these snaps of the princess with little kids. I know I did! On a sidenote: did anyone else notice that almost every kid in the top photo is wearing a puffy jacket? It’s either really cold in Monaco, or that trend is hitting its peak. Am I right?!

  1. Hi Katie,
    Thank you for all these last posts. As usual they are all so complete and with so much information! 
    Do you know if Princess Charlène and Prince Albert will be at St David´s dinner as in recent years? In 2013 and 2014 Charlène wore really fantastic gowns…..

    Hi Bluma! Great to see you again! I am not sure whether the Princely couple will be at the St. David’s dinner; however, if they are, I will certainly keep you all updated. It’s an excellent question, and now my interest is piqued. I’ll keep my eyes open. I hope you are well – happy March!
