She says paddle, stand up paddle and mentions Water Biking - now I know how she maintains her figure! The course between Monaco and Nice is 21 km and they're going to do it in relay. I'm really pleased that she's managed to widen the remit of her foundation but still have it be something that she feels passionately about - at one stage I thought it was only going to be swimming (great cause but I couldn't see how it could sustain a whole foundation).

The twins sound great and bursting with energy.

I like her hair - I can see why it's practical but I like the slightly edgy, high fashion vibe.

This Instagram account has posted the photos from the interview Charlene gave to My World Class magazine. Very sporty.

The princess is one of the most beautiful, but the magazine over did it with airbrushing. Princess Charlene does not look natural.

I think it's deliberate - everything is very posed and placed and thought out. But yes, not to everyone's taste.

Agree, i looked at the website of the mafazine and it seems that they usually use this style (posed, airbrushed) so in that view these are very gorgeous pics; i agree with French Toast the P.Charlene doesn't need it, but if it's the style of the mag, we probably couldn't expect anything different

I'm not a fan of these kind of fashion shoots for HSH. However, this is Monaco.

It's extremely tacky and inappropriate for someone in her position. But is like you are saying, this is Monaco.

charlene is decently dressed, she is not naked and she does not turn erotic scenes for TV series in Canada, she wore a sport jersey and sport trousers, they are sport photos and these photos don't break three legs of a duke or it is a storm in a water glass as we are saying in France, they are not more worst than the photos of a princess with naked breast or a danish princess running on the sea side in bikini. With their future position, they must be careful not to be taken in photos like this

She looks quite constructed with heavy maquillage, lighting, and the way she sits is not usual. But I agree with Melina: Charlène was not indecent or something.

We all know Charlene is sporty but being airbrushed to death in sport outfit doesnt go well together.

We're these pictures not taken way back last Summer? I'm sure I remember seeing one of them back then. I don't like them but I agree that there's nothing actually 'wrong' with them.

I don't find these pictures tacky at all. Although they are heavily photoshopped they are still tastefully done. Sport has always been a huge part of P Charlene's life and is also a main focus of her Foundation. Quite natural for her then to pose in this way.

Yes, she's a great believer in physical fitness and eating healthily and she talks about it often ( not surprising given her background) . In that regard I think she's a better role model than some other royal women who are obviously very underweight and, in some cases, almost skeletal. I think this photo shoot was another example of her trying to promote good living but the make up and photoshop are too over the top IMO. I have no problem with her clothes or workout poses though.

Yes, the magazine came out last summer but all the photos are doing the rounds at the moment on Instagram, websites etc.

As to other points they're very heavily styled and photoshopped but I think that's deliberate - I quite like them as an interesting exercise in promoting Monaco glamour with her interest in sport. I don't think they're claiming to be gritty photojournalism.

A Monegasque that I know did make a sniffy comment about displaying the "princely navel" but others I've spoken to have been quite admiring and positive.
