Her elation to be back in Paris means so much to the public. It was an indication everything is fine and she has fully recovered from the unspecified illness she suffered last year.

She has been in Paris since October 1, Saturday, to attend Paris Fashion Week, one of the biggest fashion shows in Europe organized annually, where popular brands, such as LV, Chanel, Dior, and Loewe, showcased their spring and summer collections.

On October 1, Saturday, Princess Charlene made a surprise appearance at the Akris Fashion Show, a fashion brand closest to her heart. She was pictured posing beside the Palais de Tokyo's reflecting pool before she took a front-row seat on the runway show of Akris.

Princess Charlene has been regularly wearing Akris clothing since her engagement to Prince Albert in 2010. In fact, the dress she wore - a backless aqua green halter ensemble — during the official announcement of their engagement was originally designed by Albert Kriemler, the creative director of Akris.

Akris is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. This fashion house was founded by Swiss designer, Alice-Kriemler Schoch, in 1922, in St. Gallen, Switzerland. The word "Akris" is derived from the letters of Alice Kriemler - Schoch's name.

The current creative director of Akris, Albert Kriemler, and the CEO, Peter Kriemler, are siblings and grandsons of Alice. On Sunday morning, Princess Charlene posted a photo of herself with Albert Kriemler on her instagram.

"Thank you Albert for a wonderful evening and congratulations on 100 years of perfection." She captioned the photo.

During her appearance at Akris fashion show, Princess Charlene donned a pair of elegant navy blue trousers and a matching navy blue coat from Akris' Spring/Summer 2023 collection.

It was her first visit to Paris in over four years and the princess could not hide her joy, making the most of her fashion week trip, and mixing with key people in the fashion industry.

We saw Prince Albert's niece, Princess Alexandra of Hanover, gracing the fashion week event. But we did not know if she met Princess Charlene or if they attended the same event together. Princess Alexandra is also a fashionista and regularly graced fashion shows, mostly on Dior and Chanel, with her mother, Princess Caroline.

We are glad Princess Charlene is able to get back to her old, happy self, enjoying what she loves most, and making the most of her time. She seems to recover fully from what she had lost last year with respect to her physical and mental health.
