"Le plus longtemps" definitely means "as long as"...or roughly "the longest time".

The first thing that I thought when I read it was not that they were questioning if their marriage would go the distance...it was that they hoped to live a long time...TOGETHER.

I could be wrong, but that was my interpretation.

I cannot imagine that CW does not realize that after she marries PA, any children they have together will remain in the Principality even if she divorces him....that is a sobering thought for any young woman...that you will forfeit your children if the marriage doesn't work.

And I don't think PA is keen on the idea of yet another divorce in the Grimaldi family either.

I think that would highly motivate both of them.

The Point de Vue cover is lovely! The best I've seen Charlene look!

I like that natural and lovely cover of Charlene & Albert (very photogenic), but this upcoming one is my absolute favorite:

Thank You so much for this (I keep forgetting this part of the forum)!

First time seeing these pics and I'm absolutely FLOORED by the very first picture ~ she looks like Cinderella on the verge of the Ball ~ but mostly she reminds me of Albert's mother, Grace Kelly, very touching, especially the following black & white pics:

And alas before I forget, the second pic is equally exquisite, but in a different way, it shows the world the figure of an athlete. She actually reminds me of a gymnast in that pic, calling forth visions of the greats, such as Svetlana Khorkina:

I was floored also, but by the contrasts - hard Charlene and soft Charlene...

The "soft" CW is the look I obviously prefer...she looks ethereal and beautiful in that photo.

I barely recognize her in the PdV cover.....

I think that's the idea .... to convey something that isn't reality....?

CW and PA, if they were following this thread, would be delighted that TRF posters all over the globe take the time to interpret, sift and parse the original headline !

Le plus longtemps is a superlative, nothing else.

It does not mean anything else.

The photo was staged by Oggi to show CW in the same pose as Grace.

This is an old cover IIRC. The reason why I remember is because this is the only hairstyle of Charlene's that I absolutely detest (looks like a plastic helmet). It doesn't look like her, rather like a mannequin. I don't know I just have never liked this cover. C'est la vie.

On a much happier note, can't wait to see what she wears for the wedding, hopefully a wedding dress fit for a princess, a fairy princess, magical, fantastical...

I've seen these "plastic helmet" shots before, and they're not doing her any favours. I just wonder who is resposible for them.
