New Mothers and Infants Meet Princess Charlene

It’s Mother’s Day in Monaco this week, and Princess Charlene marked the occasion by visiting new mothers in the maternity ward of Monaco’s Princess Grace Hospital. This seems to be an annual tradition for Charlene, perhaps especially important to her since becoming a mother herself. The princess absolutely glows around babies and children, and it seems to be as much of a delight for her as it is for the new mothers in the hospital.

Not many photos surfaced from this engagement, but I was able to get my hands on a couple, and I will share those with you here. If I can grab any more, I will certainly update this post with them! (Photos courtesy of Facebook.)


Fashion-wise, as you can see, Charlene opted for a gorgeous, white-on-white blouse and shell combination, paired with denim skinnies and beige flats. I feel like many people gravitate toward white when they’re going to be around babies (which doesn’t really make much sense, when you think of the huge messes that babies make), perhaps because of their innocence and the purity that just radiates from their little hearts. It practically begs for the reflection in white. Who knows if it’s that or just the season, but Charlene has now chosen white twice for this visit, and I think she looked beautiful today. Casual chic to the core. And look at her beautiful smile! She always seems very, very happy to be around the babies. A natural mother.


Charlene paired the casual ensemble with stunning pearls, perfectly styled hair, and neutral makeup. She shined with love for these new moms, and it was very touching to see.


I particularly love this visit because Charlene takes her spotlight and shines it onto the face of the future: new mothers, new babies. It is supremely poignant of her to commemorate these women – and all mothers in her country – by bringing them into focus. The event of childbirth changes everything, not only for that family, but also for the country itself. We honor the new, innocent little citizens and mothers who will raise them! Happy Mother’s Day!
