On September 10, 2016, Princess Charlene, Prince Albert, Prince Jacques, and Princess Caroline attended the annual picnic at the Princess Anoinette Park called the Pique Nique Monegasque. Princess Charlene wore a Vilshenko dress for the occasion with pearl stud earrings and a silver cross necklace. The dress is described as a Jery Floral Print Dress by the Moscow based brand, one of the most coveted break out brands of the year.
Charlene was given a beautiful bouquet of pink roses during the event, and Prince Jacques even offered a wave and smile to those assembled. He seemed to also enjoy the performances by the dancers at the picnic. He was clearly the center of attention and rightfully so!
However, his older sister (by 2 minutes), Princess Gabriella, was absent from the events even though she had been expected. The little princess became frightened by the large crowd just before entering the picnic while in her mother's arms. Her aunt, Princess Caroline, attempted to help calm her but it was eventually decided that it was best for her not to attend.
Little Jacques giving a wave to those in attendance.
In 2015, both Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques attended the picnic a few months before their 1st birthday on December 10.
