Princess Gabriella – took place on  Sunday 10 May 2015 at 10.30 a.m. in Monaco Cathedral in the presence of members of the Princely Family and the Wittstock family. Princess Charlene and Prince Albert chose Christopher Le Vine Jr, one of Albert’s cousins, and Diane de Polignac Nigra to be Jacques’ godparents, whilst Charlene’s brother Gareth Wittstock and Nerine Pienaar, the wife of retired South African rugby player Francois Pienaar, acted as Gabriella’s godparents. At noon, after the Mass, the Monegasque people cheered Prince Albert and Princess Charlene as they returned to the Palace on foot via the Rue Bellando de Castro. The christening was only the second time five month-old Jacques and Gabriella had been seen in public.
