She had her trademark red lipstick and a Cartier diamond necklace and earrings.
Prince Albert is the Honorary President of the Festival. The Princess also spoke during the invitation-only ceremony.
Prince Albert made sure to express his solidarity with the American people after the Orlando nightclub terror attack that had happened the same day. Albert, who is half-American, said, "I learned with dismay the heinous killing of Orlando. I bow before the victims, the pain of their families, suffering injuries. The hatred will be defeated. I asked Mr. President Obama to accept assurance of my sadness and my highest consideration.”
The event ran from June 12th till the 16th in Monaco at the Grimaldi Forum. It was created by Albert's father, Prince Rainer, in 1961. It honors and celebrates those on the small screen. Over 3,000 interviews took place during the event with 250 journalists there to cover it.
