and after that he will not have a lot of time to go wandering the world, because December is near and that means a lot of xmas activity till the end of the year. And then there is only a short break until he has to do all the beginning of the year bits again....

I would say the jury is still out for me, I liked the person's comment's about the party favors - that makes it a little more believable if there is anybody else who went & can confirm this. But the moniker (I guess is what you would call it? or user name? C?### is close to M?###) & the writing style to me sounds like the same person wrote it. & no pictures of Celeste on any of the agency photos I find very strange. Parts of it believable, some parts questionable? I can imagine PA would want to keep her out of photos -finally & she might know by now she's out of the picture if she she doesn't behave. Who knows? It might be true. But the writing style on both accounts are very much the same to me

Despite the colorful and detailed account of Charlene's appearance at the PGA, t's all rubbish, complete and total nonsense. I guess one thing these boards have proved is that anyone will believe anything they want. Maybe this is wishful thinking on the part of those post silliness, who knows.

Again, I assure you Charlene was NOT at the PGA, and NOT because neither didn't want her to be there. It was simple logistics and scheduling for her. To come from SA to NYC for 36 hours, in the middle of training, would be almost as silly as that "first person" account detailing Charlene's appearance.

As for the comment she reads these boards -- it's plain silly to think so.

Of course she will jump at any opportunity to be seen with him. Too bad she didn't know she would be so hidden this time. If she had known she might have thought twice about it. But this girl wants to marry her prey and will go to any lengths to get it, even if that entales flying over half of the world and missing a couple of trainings. Determination is her middle name. On the top on her wish list is Princess of Monaco. Next is First prize at Bejing 2008. After that comes second prize Bejing 2008. Then third prize Bejing, etc. She LOOOOVVVEESSS the limelight.

TrustWorthy, how come you are so sure about it? Charlene hasn't shown much seriousness about her training over the past year. So unless your are Albert or Charlene in disguise (and even then I won't believe your words, because both have shown to say one thing and do the opposite): how do you know? Why believe you and not the other accounts? And if you're in the know, would you mind elaborating a bit more about their bizarre relationship?

Please note that this board is about the Princess Grace Awards and not Charlene and if she did or did not attend the awards, her training schedule or her "supposed" desire for the spotlight.

Any additional posts regarding this will be deleted WITHOUT WARNING.

Could we move the Charlene posts to the correct thread? I realize she is of interest and that we posted on the wrong thread but where should they be? Thanks

Charlene actually has her own thread. It can be found here http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...a-10667-9.html. That is the proper forum to discuss her training, and/or her relationship with Albert.

Here are some pictures from the gallery, posted by Radker18. They give a fairly good idea what the dresses look like:

Caroline: front view of the dress ; back view of the dress ;
Charlene ; front view of the dress ; back view of the dress ; side view of the dress ; hairstyle ;
Tatiana and Andrea - picture


Caroline looks stunning, and so does Charlene.
I do like both outfits: saphire blue is Caroline's colour, she looks amazing. Charlene looks very beautiful and elegant in that creme/white dress, she has some 'softiness' about her these days, that really flatters her. And her hairstyle is very elegant.

Caroline does look stunning - understated elegance. I have to disagree with you on Charlene. I'm sorry but this is the worst dress she has ever worn. It looks like it came from a Victoria's secret catalog. Why did she cut her hair if she was going to grease it back and then pin it with a million pins. Estee Lauder was a sponsor couldn't one of their people have helped her out? Caroline Murphy their spokes-model looked elegant. Most everyone there did but Charlene. I was so sad that Albert brought her. It should have been a family affair. Caroline, Ernst, all three kids, Stephanie and Albert. If Albert is going to continue to drag her along he should get her help with her wardrobe this was a disgrace to Princess Grace's memory. JMO

I do agree with you about Caroline - simply stunning and elegant. I love the cut of dress from the back.

Charlene looked beautiful. Perhaps she hasn't found her style yet though I think I'm being generous. She's favors either all black or all white and nothing else for evening wear. You know how some people can wear the simplest of all dresses or even off-the-rack and somehow make it look like haute couture or classy? Charlene's dress, while it flattered her figure, looked like one of those dresses worn on beauty pageants.

Caroline looks great in the blue dress!
She is very elegant. Blue is probably her favourite colour.
I don't like at all Charlene's dress. I don't like the mermaid style and in my opinion the scarf around her neck looks so old fashioned.

I agree with you. PA disrespected his mother's memory by bringing CW.

I agree, there are some women who can take the simplest most basic items from everyday and add their own special pizzazz and then WOW! I think Caroline can do this, and Charlotte too -- Charlene does not have that quality, imo.

She reminds me of an ice box cake that would have been made in the suburbs somewhere during the 1950's. Not original at all - just add water to the powdered mix and pouf! - it's quick and easy, totally manufactured and tastes like plastic.

Her make-up even matched her dress and made her look even more plastic blah blah mono-tone, imo.

I think CW looks like she was dunked in a can of cheap vanilla frosting and climbed out just in time so that she could stand on top of a cake or something.

I mean...this girl is trying way too much to appear elegant, but at the end she turns out to look tacky. What is this dress...a prom dress, a beauty pagent dress, a barbie dress. It is just too much...bustiere in the front with crisscross lacing, sheer in the back, folds/slits on the lower part of the dress, shiny material plus sequences and a shawl/cape on top of everything...Could she find something more to put on....maybe cowboy hat?

I have to agree with you hibou.CW is attempting to merge with Princess Grace's hairdo.[CW looks pasty all the time with her make- up that is less than to be desired...how about some red lipstick... so one does not look so washed out]....... to subliminally remind of her or perhaps she is identifying with her herself. That element of Vegaish strapless and showing skin. ... with the continaution of evening gowns that have no sleeves unabated.... .. with CW and the monotony of black and white. I understand this to be the another one dimensional cardboard representation of Cw in her glamourous outfits.No comparison to Princess Grace can be made in this instance because she could weigh form against function.Could have been the geometry of Euclid that helped that Grace had to take mandatorily as she finished high school..
As for CW looking glowing and pretty as a moderator pointed out .. it seems that if a comb is dragged through her tresses and she has showered been groomed etc... that is all we expect.. and some applaud .. and well I think being so close to the tiara is doing that bringing radiance upon and being so in love as well........ I hope the betrothal is announced soon... enough already. I send my hearfelt wishes for a speedy announcement and a happy marriage.........
Pa does not look as radiant as he should be.. He looks stepped on.... maybe not enough sleep.. jetlag............
Caro did look like a Matisse painting in her fauve purplish blues.
So this was a family affair and Cw is without a doubt part of the family..apparently..
JMO imo.. etc.....
