Prince Albert and his wife Princess Charlene of Monaco have both left the city-state, after slamming the Grace of Monaco biopic depicting Albert’s mother Grace Kelly, which was previewed at the festival on Wednesday afternoon. The pair instead opted to make an official visit to the French Auvergne region town of Carlades.
The royal family has accused director Olivier Dahan's of inaccurately portraying Princess Grace, and issued a statement earlier this month reading: “The trailer appears to be a farce and confirms the totally fictional nature of this film."
Other red carpet attendees at the Grace of Monaco premiere launching Cannes on Wednesay included: Hollywood icon Jane Fonda, catwalk model Karlie Kloss, and Star Trek actress Zoe Saldana
