Princess Caroline of Monaco was presented with a Menschen in Europa (People in Europe) award by KARL LAGERFELD yesterday (12.12.11).
The royal - the sister of Prince Albert - picked up the prize for her charity work from the German Chanel designer at the event, which brings together people from all over the world including artists, religious leaders and businessmen and women.
Caroline - who is also known as the Princess of Hanover - works for a number of charities, and founded Les Ballets de Monte Carlo and children's charity Jeune J'ecoute, and is also a patron for the Peter Le Marchant Trust, a boating charity for disabled people.
In 2006, she was awarded with a prize by UNICEF for her work as a Children's Champion.
Caroline and Ernst have one daughter, 12-year-old Princess Alexandra.
She divorced her first husband Philippe Junot, while her second spouse, businessman Stefano Casiraghi - who fathered her other three children, Andrea, 27, Charlotte, 25, and 24-year-old Pierre -was killed in a speedboat accident off the coast of France in 1990.
