The Monaco Red Cross was founded by Prince Albert’s grandfather, Prince Louis II of Monaco in 1948 and the first ball was held that same year, becoming one of the largest charity galas in the world.
Charlene sparked curiosity earlier this month when she was absent from Wimbledon meaning she had been missing from the public eye for around three weeks.
Albert was snapped at the tennis tournament alongside Charlene’s closest confidante Melanie-Antoinette Costello de Massy.
The assistant is considered a source of ‘fundamental support’ to the Royal Family of Monaco, according to Vanity Fair Spain.
The 38-year-old, who is the daughter of Prince Albert’s cousin Elizabeth, is understood to have been by Charlene’s side during her recent return to the spotlight after a period of illness and treatment for ‘exhaustion’.
In January, Charlene appeared relaxed as she attended a Mass service with Melanie-Antoinette.

And the first cousin of Prince Albert II once removed was pictured at his side during engagements throughout 2021, at which time Charlene was abroad receiving medical treatment.
She has accompanied him for events going as far back as the 2010s. It would seem that she has taken over the role played by her mother Elizabeth, who was herself a key confidante.
This is despite a complicated family history, including rumours that Melanie-Antoinette’s late grandmother Antoinette de Monaco, Baroness de Massy hatched a plan to remove her brother Prince Rainier – Prince Albert’s father – from the throne through vicious rumours that he couldn’t provide an heir.
Melanie-Antoinette was once again at Prince Albert’s side at Wimbledon – a fact which only served to highlight Princess Charlene’s absence.

Charlene was notably silent on social media when the couple celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary on July 1.
There have been years of speculation about Charlene’s well-being and her relationship with Prince Albert.
They have been hit with split rumours on multiple occasions, including earlier this year, when French magazine ROYAUTÉ claimed the couple was in the process of separation.
However, the palace was quick to hit back and deny the claims.
A spokesperson said: ‘I would like to formally deny the malicious rumours peddled by the French magazine Royauté. Please disregard this article which is totally unfounded.’
