Finally if Max really wanted to dump Roberta Capua for Charlene, then he must be crazy indeed!!!

Some specifications about CW's love life:
Quote:
Rien de sulfureux dans son passé amoureux. Elle a fréquenté le nageur suédois Lars Frolander, puis le Britannique Robin Francis, avant de craquer pour le rugbyman sud-africain Andre Snyman en 2002-2003. Sa rupture avec la star de l’équipe des Springbocks la touche au point qu’elle arrête un temps ses entraînements.
"Nothing fishy in her past love life. She dated the swedish swimmer Lars Frolander, thereafter the briton Robin Francis, before falling for the southafrican rugby player Andre Snyman during 2002-2003. Her break-up with the star of the Springboks team affected her so much that she quit training for a bit. "

I believed that CW had stopped her drive because of one wound to the shoulder and not of a broken heart?

And why this sportsman did plate CW?
(doesn't CW like Rugby???)

doesn't like the football!!!

doesn't like tennis!!!!

doesn't like the ski!!!

can't swim because she wounded !!!

BUT here is an activity which she must like

charlene is not grace..

Others informations about Charlene:
Portrait of Charlene dated May 2006
All in spanish

- EL MUNDO | Suplemento cronica 562 - CHARLENE NO ES GRACE PERO...

Last part of the news:
Una revista alemana ha descubierto que, al igual que los Grimaldi, Charlene tiene un antepasado pirata. Pero así como los ancestros de Grace Kelly eran irlandeses emprendedores que enseguida alcanzaron la prosperidad en Estados Unidos como constructores importantes, los de la nadadora procedían de una familia muy pobre de Hamburgo que emigró a Sudáfrica, donde no hicieron fortuna. La familia actual de la deportista es gente de clase media, su padre edita libros.

GOOGLE TRANSLATION:
A German magazine has discovered that, like the Grimaldi, Charlene has a pirate ancestor. But as well as the ancestros of Grace Kelly were Irish entrepreneurs who immediately reached the prosperity in the United States like important constructors, those of the swimmer came from a very poor family of Hamburg that emigrated to South Africa, where did not make fortune. The present family of the sportswoman is people of middle-class, her father publishes books.

Thanks for the pics it looks like its only the german edition - is that correct? Yes she has spent a lifetime outdoors and it shows. It's sad to see someone so young with the wrinkles of a 40 year old especially when there is so much available today to prevent that. She really needs to take of her skin if only to prevent skin cancer which with her fair skin she is more prone too get.

Since Charlenes education has come up again and she uses her swimming as an excuse for the lack of it, I would like to bring a young athlete to your attention who will be the flagbearer for her country at the games in Monaco and who, inspite of persuing her swiming has managed to become a doctor and has been working 60 hours per week since her graduation in hospital and at the same time seiously been training to be participating in the games and representing her country. Her name is Angela Galea. The Times & The Sunday Times, Malta


Quote:
She has been working around 60 hours a week at the hospital since her graduation as a doctor. It is extremely difficult for her. But on the other hand, we are well aware that she knows how to compete when called to do so. She and Carol Walsh are two of our best ever athletes in this respect. They are always focused and psychologically well prepared. They both know how to handle the pressure. Let us not forget that when Angela won the gold medal in Andorra, we were not even expecting a bronze in that event," said Psaila.
INDEPENDENT online

She seems to be quite pretty too. I just thought that CHarlene should be put into perspective of what others manage to achieve, who do not go boasting about how hard they are training etc etc. Some simply go and do it and do plenty of other things on the the side.

Charlene is definitely not taking good care of her skin especially the area around her eyes. I would think she would know better to look her best and take care of her appearance, because she is and always will be crutinize by the press and public for her affair with Prince Albert.

On France 2, there is an other show !! a little bit humorous on Charlene and Albert. the presenter Laurent Rukier speaks about Laure manaudou which was not present at Monaco with "Evening dress" and known as that one would have better done to entrust Laure to Albert... See Charlene which which preferred "to be involved" in Monaco with place SA to be closer to Albert and does not hesitate to want to hope become princess

This week's YOU Magazine has an article about Charlene and Albert.
YOU - Homepage


In short they are commenting about her re-appearance in Monaco and that she was away training and that was why she wasn't around.

The various events she has attended, football match, fashion show etc.

That Virginia Gallico - Caroline's former lady-in-waiting has been commissioned to tutor Charlene in palace protocol.

And also that she has been to Roc Agel and met Princess Stephanie and that apparently none of his other girlfriends have ever been invited there.

The last part is about her training schedule and where she will be competing next and that after the Olympics she will be retiring from swimming.

(Moderators: if I have incorrectly posted please remove the post - Thank You)

Thanks for the link LadyS. i love the title which desperately tries to draw a link between Charlene and Grace. Media just can't get over it apparently. It is so ridiculous, but I guess that they believe that it sells if a woman is said to resemble Grace. I think they did the same while spreading the Gwyneth Paltrow rumour or while they where after the Alicia Warlic story. I think they even tried it on Tasha who has brown eyes and dark hair. I haven't seen the pics, but I believe even once Nicole became public knowledge they desperately tried to push her into some Grace poses. Can't the media find sth in those women themselves that is original and remarkable? Why are they trying to put the stamp "Grace copy" on every single woman that Albert dates or is rumoured to date? I really wonder why they are doing it with Albert. How come that they don't do it with William and Harry who also lost an equally iconic mother at a very early age (much earlier then ALbert I may add and who would psychologically probably be more likely to look for a substitute)?

eited to add: Interesting that they credit Bunte on the article. It seems that Bunte is the source of most articles about the couple

Thank you Lady S. I could be mistaken but we heard all this last year in August about the protocol and in one photo from last year we actually saw both Albert's Chief of Protocol and Mme. G. at Charlene's side so she has had a whole year to learn this stuff and hasn't apparently. Also I would think they would be talking more about her conversion to the Catholic church and her French lessons. I don't recall any magazine talking about those issues. So to me it's just a rehash and as paca pointed out the never ending comparision to Grace, but I'm glad Lady S. brought it to our attention!

Can someone with better eyes than me help me here. If you click on the photo above and zoom in a little, does it really say that in July she is competing in the African Masters Championships?

With all the Senior swim competitions going on, especially right in the area of Europe, the US and even the All African Games in Africa, (which if I am not wrong is an Olympic qualifying event, why is she chosing to go to all the way to Tunisia to swim with a bunch of Masters swimmers?

Maybe my eyes are deceiving me, they are not so good these days.

My husband swims in Masters meets, but he is not claiming to try out for the Olympics next year.

Sorry if I miss read, can anyone else see it in the article?

Me that makes me well laugh, because that made of the weeks that one announced the total boycot of the family (Caroline and her children, Stéphanie...) and now (the waving of a magic wand) they make her Reverence to lick the ground and even they lend to her "former lady-in-waiting " morever she met Stephanie Ahh lalala that we are stupid, malicious...
which proof do we have??? word of a magazine, of a journalist who wants to see his article published???? but where the press release which proves that Caroline and Stéphanie agree to lend Mrs. Gallico??? I do not have anything considering!!!
which value can have an article of a journalist who reads the messages in this forum and publishes "scoops"?
we all can do as much of it!! too much easy!!!

I will choose this "splendid" trade, to be to pay for this kind of article!!! is not necessary to have scruples!!!

Mme Gallico is btw not a former lady in waiting ( unless she has recently been released of her functions) and her absence these last few weeks at public appearances is quite remarkable. She is always somewhere in tow during important public events. With regards to Charlenes table manners I should say that either the mentioning is untrue, Charlene is a bad pupil or Mme Gallico a bad teacher. I think that her absence (being leftover from Graces times) and the absence of the sisters is actually very interesting. Aktuelle has an article with regards to that this week, although I think that they are wrong in claiming that Steph is worried about Charlene taking her space. She will always have a place in Monaco with Albert and since she has her own field of action that she created independently from the rest of the family (no taking over of established charities), I don't see how Charlene or anyone else would be a threat to her. None the less these recent absences are interesting though the motivation behind each one of them might be due to totally different reasons.

Bravo -- imo, CW competitive swimming days are over. As far as I am concerned, she's a former athlete. How is she 'training' for competitive events but always appearing by Albert at these public events? Those atheletes who are serious about competing have been really practicing and really trying hard to get ranked in the various meets. CW has not done any of that (well...the media hasn't been able to find much of it, at least).

Unless she is trying to slide in somehow with the bare minimum activity (low hanging fruit, no-name meets where not too many current TOP swimmers are participating). They could be trying to set up CW to have the bare minimum qualification to go for MC -- if she did nothing only but carry the flag or walk with the others who have been actually working for Beijing.

You know? She becomes PA 'companion' and starts going around with him, she meets different IOC members, she swims a few times in some basic non-competitive events, qualifies by the skin of her teeth and then goes to Beijing representing MC as an 'athelete'. Then she and her press agents try to fall back on the story of how her injuries plagued her the whole time...

yeah right. we will have to see the new line unfold...

"Charlene is a bad pupil or Mme Gallico a bad teacher" truer words have never been written-well said paca. poor woman( mme gallico) it's the wonder she's not being booed in the streets if she's responsible for charlenes style and manners. interesting info thanks paca. i find it very interesting the family seems to be avoiding her.
and i consider her a former athlete it's a joke, there's no way she can be prepared for olympics, it just looks so much better under the photos if the captions are respectable. which looks better official companion or olympic swimmer/model or however they are spinning her this week. whats sad is anyone of her outfits over the course of the week with different shoes, or color or whatever would have looked fine. it just seems to be her style to look not quite put together.
