  • Princess Charlene of Monaco made an appearance in Nice recently, wearing a Joker mask.
  • The princess delighted fans with the "Why so serious?" mask - a nod to her twins Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella.
  • The appearance comes as Princess Charlene prepares for the upcoming Crossing: Calvi - Monaco Water Bike Challenge.


Princess Charlene of Monaco recently made an appearance to kick off the 107th Tour de France in Nice.

Accompanying husband Prince Albert, who recovered earlier this year after contracting Covid-19, the South African Olympic swimmer donned an interesting face mask. It read: "Why so serious?" a famous line by the Joker in The Dark Knight.

According to People, the princess likely wore the fun mask as a nod to her 5-year-old twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella. The twins are such big superhero fans they even opted for a superhero-themed fourth birthday, the publication reports.

To fans' delight, Princess Charlene unknowingly wore the funny mask upside down for most of the appearance too.

The appearance comes just two weeks before Her Serene Highness is to cycle 180km by water bike in 24 hours, with the help of former UFC star, Conor McGregor, Olympic gold medallist, Yannick Angel, and Australian racing cyclist, David Tanner.

The Crossing: Calvi - Monaco Water Bike Challenge will take place on 12 and 13 September 2020, to raise awareness of, and funds for the various programmes run by The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation.

"Navigating the ocean at night is no easy task," Princess Charlene said on the upcoming challenge. "One feels so small and insignificant when facing this watery giant."
