The Sovereign, elegant as ever, wore a tie with a greyhound pattern, especially for the event. The Princess looked stylish in a lovely 1980s retro outfit in shades of brown, matching the Prince.

It was a relaxed visit by the Princely Couple, each stroking one of the winning dogs.

As for the competition, there was a new feature for Best in Show. As the show’s President, Mélanie-Antoinette de Massy, explained to Monaco Info: “A major innovation this year, is that our show is a selective event for Crufts, the biggest show in the world. If I can make a tennis comparison, it’s like Wimbledon. Everyone wants to go to Crufts. And the dog that wins Best in Show will automatically be selected for Crufts 2025.”
