Also Abaca has photographs available, but I am not able to post the entire link as the link keeps changing to something else whenever I post it.

To see the Abaca photographs, everyone will have to copy the link below into your browser address bar, and put "http://www." directly in front of "abacausa.com" in your address bar for the link to work. Don't put any spaces between the words, or else it won't work.

Look here you see King Constantine & Queen Anne Marie toward the bottom left.
I love royal watching at the olympics.

Look here:
Abaca Press Americas Search Results
Prince Albert, Charlene, and Norway's king & queen watching the preliminary rowing

What swimming competition did PA & CW watch? Did they watch Phelps?

I was half-expecting Albert to be all over the women's beach volleyball!!!!

Charlene and Albert

There is a picture with Charlene standing up in the bleechers giving a 2 thumbs up to the Monaco team coming on stage. Personal opinion, she looks like an idiot and so does Albert in some of the photos.

i respect your opinion in a way you are right because charlene said she have a arm injury that she cannot compete but she does not have any problem playing a cheer leader and enjoying all the spotlight she is getting from the press, if she want people to see her in different light is time she and albert get their act together.

Well, it's not very dignified that's for sure. Charlene for me has always lacked polish and thus far has failed to attain it. I agree Albert doesn't look much better in some of them either. What a lovely couple!

It's o.k to show your support for your team. Charlene was doing what PA was doing I don't believe she care for Monaco. The Bush was cheering too and waving their flags.

I agree.

Come on folks...it's the Olympic games! Would you consider going to see your favorite team without cheering for them when they're doing well? And, if you don't have a favorite team or even enjoy sports - then you have no ground to criticize someone doing what you have never done.

I'm a pretty conservative guy, but when I'm watching my favorite team...I just go nuts! When the game's over, then I go back to being the "conservative". My wife does the same.

They weren't even playing. It was the walking of the nations. I love sports, go crazy over swimming and soccer, and am currently watching the Olympics, but that's because it's the actual game itself. Notice how I didn't say a thing about Albert and Charlene's excitement during the swim heats, and why would I? They're enjoying the competition. There's a difference.

As always, TRF becomes overly critical of trivial things....

Thumbs up is an internationally understood way of saying " all ok - ready to go". Perfectly ok -

Thumbs up has nothing to do with cheerleading. Who said she is supposed to be competing. If she is no longer interested in making swimming her fulltime occupation so what. Enjoy life with Albert - swimming competitively is a very short-term occupation anyway. I hope she has a grand time at the OS and that Albert is treating her like a "queen".

Well, here's my two-cents on this. If it was the parade of Nations at the opening ceremony (which I believe it was) when she gave the two thumbs up it wasn't very dignified. Had she been "just a spectator" I doubt anyone would have had a problem with it, but since she was accompanying a head of state she should have chosen to stand with him and applaud. If it was at a sporting contest and she was pleased, it wouldn't have been out of line. SMDouglas makes a good point but again the difference is when the thumbs up took place. At a ceremony like the parade of Nations it was inappropriate at one of the sporting venues during a competition, she can get away with it.

In my opinion, It was inapproriate for Charlene as "girlfriend" to be standing there giving the 2 thumbs up, she is not representing Monaco. Albert as the head of state did the appropriate thing, stood up and waived and i believe gave the thumbs up, however, she, as his guest, should of just stood there and smiled, that would have been the appropriate and dignified thing to do. If you look at other photographs of her at the Olympics most of them show her mugging for the camera. Not Cool!

My, my. All this hubub over a thumbs up sign. I think it is great when Royals get involved in supporting their teams. Most of the dignitaries waved at their teams when the passed by the box. The way Charlene and Prince Albert act is nothing compared to how Princess Maxima and Prince W-A behave. The Dutch royals are a lot more rowdy than Charlene and Prince Albert. And why not? It is fun to cheer on your team
