Her backswing could benefit from a little coaching, but there's no denying Princess Charlene of Monaco's follow-through.

Capping off a day-long charity golf tournament on Wednesday, both Princess Charlene and Prince Albert of Monaco stepped onto the 19th hole for what is arguable one of the world's most exclusive tee shots: one attempt to land as close to the pin on a special one-night-only fairway in the middle of Monte Carlo.

With one of the world's iconic buildings as a backdrop, Princess Charlene approached the tee dress in a long black robe and practical ballet flats. With a few tips from her husband and brother Gareth Wittstock, she took a few practice strokes before giving her best shot aimed toward the Charles Garnier-designed Opera House.

Upon hitting the ball a respectable distance, the former Olympic swimmer received a high-five from Prince Albert.
