Princess Charlene enjoyed a glamorous night out as she made a solo appearance at the Golden Nymph Awards at the Monte Carlo TV Festival on Tuesday.

The Monaco royal, 45, looked stunning in a floor-length navy silk gown from her go-label, Akris, which she accessorised with statement diamond jewellery.

While Charlene’s husband, Prince Albert, wasn’t in attendance, the Princess was joined by Albert’s nephew, Louis Ducruet and his wife, Marie, who welcomed a baby girl, Victoire, in April.

During the glittering ceremony, Princess Charlene appeared on stage to present writer and producer Howard Gordon (The X Files, 24, Homeland and Accused) with the Honorary Golden Nymph Award.

Meanwhile, Prince Albert attended the opening party of the festival last Friday.

Last week, Albert and Charlene welcomed basketball athletes to the Prince’s Palace of Monaco after they won the French Elite Basketball Championship. The couple were joined by their eldest child, Prince Jacques, as they posed for photographs in the palace courtyard.

Charlene, who recently debuted a new hair colour, opted for a tonal ensemble for the meeting.
