Princess Charlene has launched her first official project since returning to royal duties.

The former Olympic swimmer announced the launch of her first NFT collection, a digital artwork that will raise money for a food programme aimed at helping vulnerable children in South Africa.

In an announcement on her official Instagram account, the princess revealed that the project is in collaboration with South African pro-golfer Louis Oosthuizen, the top-ranked golf player in the country and no 22 in the latest world rankings.

"Excited about my first NFT collection, commissioned for my #feed2gether project in collaboration with @louisoosthuizen57."

Charlene went on to thank South African artist Junaid Se´ne´chal-Senekal, for putting "his heart and soul into this creation, as well as his health for fasting for the entire duration of this work."

"By doing what he experienced is a tragic reality for many and something most take for granted every day, it highlights the importance of this project," she added.

The NFT artwork, titled Our Vision Together, is made up of 15 pieces that are 75cmx 75cm each.

Princess Charlene's #feed2gether initiative is part of her Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation South Africa (PCMFSA). Together with the Louis Oosthuizen Foundation57's iPapa57 Feeding the Children programme, the initiative hopes "to raise funds to produce specially formulated maize products for children between the ages of 3 and 5," according to the website.
