Prince Albert II of Monaco and Princess of Monaco attended Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral in London on Sept. 19. 

The Princess of Monaco paid her last respects to Queen Elizabeth II.

During her visit to Westminster Abbey in London on Sept. 19, the former Olympian walked alongside her husband, Prince Albert II of Monaco. Her Majesty was laid to rest. (You can watch the funeral here.)

The 44-year-old Charlene wore a traditional black ankle-length dress with a diamond brooch, black hat, and veil, while Albert, 64, wore a state uniform. 

With black heels and tights, she completed the look. A red and diamond brooch was worn to her, a subtle nod to Monaco’s flag.

She remembered the late monarch on social media after her death on Sept. 8.

“I am deeply saddened at the news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, a truly remarkable lady whose dedication and service was recognized throughout the world during the 70 years of her reign,” she wrote on Instagram. “Today, my thoughts are with her family, her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and the British people.”

Charlene made a rare appearance at the Queen’s funeral ten months later. She was admitted to a treatment facility and would miss several weeks of public duties while battling ill health.

Albert told People that “several factors” contributed to his wife seeking treatment, including “she was exhausted, physically and emotionally. She was overwhelmed and couldn’t face official duties, life in general, or even family life.”

In April, Charlene resumed her royal duties. As she attended Monte-Carlo Fashion Week with her 7-year-old daughter Princess Gabriella, she gave an update on her health. She told Monaco Matin on May 24 that she still feels “fragile” but “serene.” (Charlene and Albert have a 7-year-old son, Jacques.)

“When I returned to the Principality, I focused all my energy on my children, my husband, and my health because they are my priority,” Charlene told the outlet. “My state of health is still fragile, and I don’t want to go too fast. The road has been long, difficult, and difficult. However, today I feel calmer.”
