Cape Town - HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco will once again return to South Africa for a royal affair at the Turffontein Racecourse on 22 April.

The prestigious Turffontein Standside 1600m event for fillies and mares will also be named the HSH Princess Charlene Empress Club Stakes.

And her support of the race day means a number of charities are set to benefit among those the Red Cross, Highveld Horse Care Unit and Gugu Lesizwe Primary School.

"I look forward to once again attending a racemeeting at the historic Turffontein Racecourse and of course continuing the support of a number of worthy causes," Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene says of her involvement on the day.
"To have the horseracing community rally behind this will be amazing and being able to play a part in restoring some of the glamour back into the sport is also special."
Princess Charlene was a special guest at the same venue back in 2012 when featuring at the Charity Mile meeting which is held annually every November.
