I just wanted to know how YOU know since you emphatically say she wasn't there. I know you can't prove it, but what's your source?

I doubt it there can be a mixup between Heather Van Zuidam and Charlene since Heather looks quite different (and looks younger) than Charlene.

What was she wearing? How tall is she? Who was she talking to? How was her hair? What did she look like in person? More beautiful? Less beautiful? Can you provide any more details?

As I wrote on another forum on this subject...It was kind of dark in the ballroom...I think her sleeveless gown might have been bluish. Her hair was up too. She was quite chatty talking to people.
They had tv monitors around when they announced Albert entering and they asked everyone to stand. In comes Albert with Charlene followed by his bodyguards. Later, I observed one of Albert's bodyguards calling Charlene over to Albert's location so he could introduce her to the elderly actress Celeste Holm who was in High Society with Grace Kelly.
It was not until after the awards ceremony when they had the dancing in the adjoining room that I saw a photographer taking group photos with Charlene and other attendees. So there will be some photos surfacing at some point. Also, it was not until the dancing that I saw Andrea and his girlfriend, because I never saw them during the awards ceremony. At least not from where I was sitting. Also, I'm not the kind of person who asks celebrities/famous people for autographs or to have my picture taken with them. I try to keep a respectable space unless I am invited within.
As for the red carpet, I don't know why Albert did not have Charlene at his side. Perhaps he thought it might have been a distraction for the news media whereas the point of the evening was to have focus on the Princess Grace Awards event itself. Charlene was polite, and chatty with everyone around her. She seemed happy and festive to be there. People brought their own cameras and were taking group photos with her. (And no, I don't know why they have not been posted yet). Again, regarding her gown, I'm sorry I don't recall the color because I was in shock seeing her there. (I mean, I really did not expect to see her there because as all of us here on the forum noted her absence, and her in the airport viewing the magazine photos of Albert with the other woman on the yacht). I think her gown was bluish. I did notice she is tall...maybe 5'10". Her gown was sleeveless. She had her hair up as all of you have seen previous photos of her with her hair up. It was done up the same like previous.
I would not lie about Charlene being there with Prince Albert. I know too well that is something one does not joke about on this forum.

Hi MW! I have no doubt that you were there -I am amazed that no one got a pic of her since she was such hot news and this would certainly be worth $$ to whomever got the pics. I know it must be frustrating for you to have all of us in doubt but it is just amazing. And more so becuase of all the photos we saw of him last summer with other women. Had Charlene not made all her comments, it wouldn't seem like such a big deal for her to be there. But then after he made his comment amount not marrying in the near or distant future makes you wonder why she would continue to be with him after the way he treated her with his actions and comment on marriage.

I guess one can believe whatever they wish but I can tell you Charlene was not at the PGA 2006 -- not because she wasn't welcome, but simple scheduling. PA came in for the event then immediately left -- he didn't even have the time to return the favor to his MC, Larry King, by doing his yearly CNN interview. I'm sorry, but this year wasn't like those of the past -- too many things to do and too little time. This is reflected in the coverage of the event. Sorry.

I guess TrustWorthy must be Prince Albert himself if he knows not only that Charlene wasn't at the PGA, but all of the intimate details of why she wasn't there as well.

If she was there it should have been reported as everything the Grimaldis do,but there are no pictures.

I don't think she was there because there are no pictures. There aren't even any pics of Andrea and Tati. I'm not saying MW is lying but I'm not sure the woman she was introduced to as "Charlene" is THE Charlene Wittstock.

Well, I thought you had something concrete. This reasoning doesn't mean that she wasn't there. (Although again, I don't think she was.)

Well, in this case I think the best way to wait for a few days. If there were taken any Charlene pictures they will appear undoubtely. Let's wait! ...Whether there was Charlene or not, what's the difference? Albert does not have eyes of the man madly fallen in love. I may admit that Charlene is able to serve his physical needs, but who will take care of his emotional and psychical needs?

I agree we should wait sometimes the news agencies sit on photos if requested to do so and maybe Albert's PR people asked that they do so so as not to distract from the event. But I doesn't fit for Andrea or Tatiana they are always photographed at events - it's part of his job as a member of that family and the awards are in honor of his grandmother - so no pics of Andrea is very odd.

Trustworthy could you tell us if Andrea and Tatiana were there? By the way I like your moniker!

I can only confirm Charlene was not present for no reason other than scheduling.

Trustworthy, what to you know about Albert schedule on PGA night that we don't know? Ok he did not give interview on Larry King show. But how do you know Albert left gala immediately? Were you there? And what do you mean that Albert left immediately, was he 5 or ten minutes only? You must also know his schedule on that night very well, what kind of meeting could he have after gala?

I think we have spent enough time talking about Charlene and whether or not she attended this years awards.

If she did attend....hopefully someone will provide any pics that comply with the new picture policy.

Until then....let's move on.

Thank you!

Was it ever determined whether Albert attended the NY Gala with or without Charlene?

Well it seems that she was at the PGW even though no photos have emerged. It was pretty well confirmed on another board by someone who met her at the event. Now the question is where is she living and what happened to her training. Albert will in all likelyhood be in Monaco until after the festivities of National Day are over.
