    Princess Charlene in South Africa alone for ‘Learn to Swim’ charity event

    This past weekend, Princess Charlene of Monaco looked very happy and all smiles as her foundation, the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation South Africa (PCMFSA), hosted the inaugural Water Bike Challenge at Sun City.

    Celebrities that were competing in the South African version of the race included cricket star AB de Villiers, boxer Kevin Lerena, Olympic medallist Bridgitte Hartley, swimming star Ryk Neethling, model Lee-Ann Liebenberg, musician Jesse Clegg, actor Siv Ngesi, and DJ and model Roxy Louw.

    Pictures from The Monaco Palace Instagram page were circulating the internet, as they were showcasing the fun-filled event, but someone who was noticeably absent was Prince Albert, along with the couple’s twins Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella.

    The Princess spent most of her time overseeing festivities at Sun City by opening the Water Bike race, which featured mixed teams of professional athletes and amateurs competing on Schiller S1-C water bikes in a relay race.

    A lot of the proceeds from the event are going to be donated to Lifesaving South Africa (LSA), which is one of PCMFSA’s long-standing partners, as well as a rhino conservation programme and endangered animal species. Princess Charlene looked very happy and laid back in the pictures, and she even rocked sporting a Springbok jersey in support of our national team at the Rugby World Cup in France.

    Her visit to South Africa follows rumours swirling around her marriage to Prince Albert. Just last month, she deleted her official Instagram account amid reports that she had moved out of the royal palace.

    There was a fire that broke out in the Cabanas kitchen at Sun City on Saturday afternoon. “Food and beverage staff noticed a small fire, which they put out, but it had already spread through the extraction ventilation to the reception area and offices,”- the general manager Brett Hoppe said.

    Hoppe also mentioned that the resort’s fire and rescue services were on standby at a nearby event and their quick reaction ensured that the fire was brought under control in just under an hour.
