Princess Charlene dazzles in glittering dress beside Prince Albert amid divorce rumours
Princess Charlene, 45, and Prince Albert of Monaco, 65, stepped out in public together for the first time since they addressed speculation that they were separating after 12 years of marriage.
The Monégasque royals looked to be in high spirits as they attended the Monaco Women Forum Awards at the Hermitage Hotel on Friday night. Princess Charlene looked phenomenal in a glittering sleeveless dress from Akris, complete with an elegant mock neckline, fitted bodice and rippling skirt that featured a statement thigh split.

As for makeup, the radiant royal kept it minimal, highlighting her ageless beauty glow with a peachy blush, a metallic pink eye look and soft rose lipstick. The Princess swept her icy blonde pixie cut into a neat side parting, levelling up her look with a vampy black manicure and metallic clutch bag.

"I would like to formally deny the malicious rumours peddled by the French magazine Royauté. Please disregard this article which is totally unfounded," a spokesperson for the Palace shared.
Princess Charlene, a former Olympic swimmer, met Prince Albert of Monaco at a swimming event in 2007. The couple announced their engagement in 2010, with Albert proposing with a three-carat, pear-cut diamond ring.
