No one is saying that he has to marry an actress or any other particular type of person. He has said very recently that he is in no rush to get married, she has said that they are not talking marriage, it's everyone else. Personally, I'd like to see him with someone like Mary who never sought the spotlight like Charlene is apparently doing. Being taught to act like a princess is one thing; understanding the enormity the impact of your actions on your role is totally different. That's where some of us have issues...we don't think that she understands how the Princess of Monaco needs to deflect the spotlight to the Prince of Monaco and his agenda.
But he's not going to marry someone like Mary. That's clear. And any ill behaviour on her part, to me, is a reflection on him. What is he doing with her if she is "unsuitable?" And as far as her deflecting the spotlight to him and his agenda, isn't it his job to guide her by his own example. If he's behaving in this indiscreet way, why would she know to behave any different around him? Isn't anything his responsibility?

He is behaving pretty discreetly: he has made no comments to the press, his press office isn't saying anything other than no comment, she's the one with all the attention. This is all his responsibility and maybe if they have been dating for a while, her current behaviour may be the reason he chose her "coming out" party as the Olympics rather than an important state affair like his intronisation. Personally, like paca, I think she's a distraction for the time being and she's going to capitalize on the notoriety. At this point, any woman, past gf, or not, is going to be hyperscrutinized by the press. Of course, I'd like to hear what is happening in that part of the world, but we'll have to wait for paca.

is there any chance that maybe he has someone who is not in the spotlight? maybe she is just waiting until he give the okay and then he'll show the world who he is going to marry? does anyone think it possible?

How many more women does he need to sleep with before he gets married?
we'll all have to wait and see if he is done dating or not. but if he is not done dating maybe he will work his way to dating someone on this board.

I agree with PinkLady, I have some suspicion that this Olympyc game maneuver looks like "a distraction for the time being" :) But at the same time I don't think that he has someone hidden in the shade now, otherwise I would think: - "What for?" We all want to be proud of our choice and I think he too. Or did he pick up someone very dubious and unsuitable once again? Remembering his recent bitter experience it seems too unlikely as well as his dating with someone from this board as Semi said...try to keep your heads out of rose clouds, girls. I am fully cinfident our board is not that place where PA is used to spend his free time ....What about Paca? Whe is she going to back with news?

The one thing everyone needs to remember now is that Albert no longer has to hide anyone from public view for fear of his father's disapproval. He is finally free to choose whomever he wants and I'd like to think that PA knows exactly what he wants and needs pretty much like anyone else does. I have to admit though, I like semi's optimism. :)

Personally what I think is important to remember is that while someone he dates may resemble his mother physically or have the same career, she ultimately needs to have the poise and brains to fill the role well. That has been more difficult to find. Perhaps the string of unsuitable, but I'm sure lovely ladies, had more to do with Rainier's ideal than Albert's.

Well, it looks like they are together to me. She looks rather stunning in these new pics - thanks Tosca. He's not hiding her, he's almost glowing with relief. She looks happy and at 28 years old, she can have several children for the MC throne. Honestly, besides the nit-picking about whether she's playing to the press or not, she happens to be the most suitable woman he's dated in a long, long, long time. :)

They haven't actually been seen together for a few days, so they are either viewing events separately or she's gone home. Maybe them meeting up over the course of the games wasn't serious afterall? If it were, wouldn't you think she would stay to keep him out of trouble, and to keep his eye from wondering? Just a thought.

I think he needs someone different I mean more educated, with an universitary degree.We all know that if you spend most of the time training you are not very cultivated.Do you really think she is suitable? She is just a pretty face.We are no longer in the 50's when Monaco was very different.Mary studied law and Letizia was a journalist and they know how to use this in their favour.He needs someone like Princess Victoria(not her) who is not particularly beautiful nor particularly intelligent but she is beautiful enough and intelligent enough for her role.He needs someone who could socialise both with businessmen in Monaco(and I'm sure they have something to say in the principality's public life) and with heads of state.

Well lets hope PA is listening.

I wouldn't say she's not cultivated just because she has no university degree. Albert's younger sister doesn't have one neither ...

CW might be a fine wife for PA. Only he can tell really. But, I am a bit confussed about her "training" for 2008. She would be a bit old for it wouldn't she? Kind of sounds like a line. Someone else made a similar comment in an earlier post. Any ideas on how serious this might be?

Leah...You are right -- she could be the one and maybe not. PA is the only one who knows for sure.

There are posts on swimming websites saying that last fall CW rejoined a prestigious swimming club in SA in order to re-focus her swimming career. She'll be 30 1/2 in '08 -- probably much older than the other swimmers. Per the article in which she says she is training for Peking, she claims that injuries have kept her away from serious training but she never really stopped. It's just a wait and see game.

I'm not sure if her sudden "disappearance" from events with PA is in response to the media frenzy focusing more on his love life and less on his relationship as an IOC member. She was talking pretty freely to the press for a while which is a big no-no.

So jealous you are in HI...it's FREEZING in Boston. Aloha.

okay ,i am sorry if my comments were taken wrong, what i meant to say is since albert dates women from all walks of life and social levels i thought it could be possible that someone out here might have a chance to date him. with him running a country i would be surprise if he had a lot of time to surf the net.

Aloha, and yes the weather is nice in Hawaii. We are all just concerned about our friends in the phillipines...

If I had to guess on the PA - CW thing I would say they were just having a good time. He has no reason to marry. Why would any man who can practically pick a woman out of the crowd cramp his own style by getting married? That just puts him line for more scandal.....rumors of cheating etc. etc. He has a family. I also think what Rainer wanted, and the women he approved of, are completely irrelevant at this point.

Oh, Leah..I'm so sorry...I will keep you and your friends in my prayers.

Well, PA kinda, sorta does have a reason to marry -- legitimate heirs of his own. There isn't a crisis in the line of succession but... Yes, I agree getting married for the wrong reasons to perhaps the wrong person could potentially create more problems that it solves, but never discount parental influence.

:p Well, I guess at this point the succession point is resolved.

If PA felt that there was an emergency or something about his not having a legit heir, then he would probably try to fix it. but since he has not done that, then I assume there is no problem.

I just think that he just has not and does not want to get married. Plain and simple. Since he's a prince, however, and the long locked-in tradition is that princes get married, alot of people would never accept it if he said plainly that he does not want to get married. So, he just goes on with his dates and let the people wait and talk as they will.

And that's fine. The situation is resolved so he does not have to do that if he does not ever want to.:p
