Monaco's New Royal Mom Is the Belle of the Rose Ball

Mar 31 2014 - 11:35am

Draped in silver Chanel couture, Monaco royal Charlotte Casiraghi looked like a new mom ready for some fun this weekend in Monte Carlo, where she let loose at the annual Rose Ball. The pretty young royal and granddaughter of Grace Kelly welcomed a baby boy, Raphael, last December [1] with French comedian Gad Elmaleh. While Gad was away performing in Lyon, Charlotte was joined by other members of the royal family, including her brother, Pierre, and his equally glamorous girlfriend, Beatrice Borromeo, an Italian aristocrat and TV personality. Charlotte's uncle and Monaco's ruler, Prince Albert II, was also in attendance with his wife, Princess Charlene.

The ball is held each year to raise money for the Princess Grace Foundation, and the VIP crowd enjoyed a performance by Lebanese-British singer-songwriter Mika, who happens to have a hit called "Grace Kelly." "I tried to be like Grace Kelly," the lyrics go. "But all her looks were too sad." On Saturday, however, Grace Kelly's family looked anything but sad! Check out the snaps below.

Charlotte had a blast dancing.
