For his own reasons (whatever would be, love, passion, cold analysis, or friensdhip, etc etc) he thinks CW is the suitable woman for him. This is perfect. Why we are searching to have another Princess Grace? Princess Grace was a magnificent Princess, but another woman with completely different skills could be also absolutely perfect in her role.
CPs Mary and CPs Maxima are both perfect in their roles, but being different caracters, why CW has to be another Grace, in order to succeed???

Very true indeed, Charlene will be her own person. Prince Albert said in an interview that he would not marry someone that his sisters did not approve of. I took that as a statement regarding suitability for the role of wife of the ruler of Monaco. Princesses Caroline and Stephanie are strong women and Charlene is capable of holding her own in the family "business." She appears to be soft and lighthearted. Perhaps just what Prince Albert was looking for. Best to both of them.

Probably they have been engaged for a while, and the entire Grimaldi clan knew about the engagement. Prince Albert has always said that he would one day marry and have a family. Princess Caroline said in past interviews that her children did not have titles because they would not need them. She did not raise her children thinking that one day they were to rule Monaco so perhaps there is not a huge change in their lives. Who knows?

I would like to see Charlene as the princess of Monaco. She seems to be capable and has everything imo! She is beautiful and keeps a low profile. Good!

In my opinion the wedding will take place next year in april, like his parents. Not in november, because is too soon for a big wedding.

Maybe the romantic weekend gave Albert courage to the decision. Great, another royal wedding to come, though it can´t be as lovely as the swedish one, at least to me ...
But congratulations to the couple!
During the wedding I was wondering similar thoughts. At the wedding ceremony, Charlene was glowing and smiling all througout the exchange of vows. I was thinking - how can she look so happy, she is not engaged to Albert. Maybe she is satisified just being his girlfriend? And why is she sitting with the other royals?? Now we know, and probably the Swedish royals knew something too! Why would protocol seat the girlfriend of the prince of Monaco with other heads of state? More people than we know were aware of the impending nuptuals. Fantastic news.

Finally! I would really like to see CW as Albert's wife! She'll give a different aura in Monaco!

No No No - for several years it has been obvious that Prince Albert did his own thing. He would not enter into the sacrament of holy matrimony just to quiet critics. He is the catholic head of state. His marriage is a important decision in his life, for many reasons. And I can't think of any billionaire (he is one) that would enter into marriage just to keep people from picking on him.

If it's true - CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I hope that is the case - not sure what they've been waiting for (possibly to see if/when she'd get preggers), so if that's also part of it.....CONGRATULATIONS, again!!

I agree, and also if he is a true gentleman, he wouldn't throw Charlene in this role, the role of the First Lady of a nation, just to shut people up. For it is not only about hs own life anymore but also that of hers. They dated for 4 years, it is normal for them to get married. Look at Victoria and Daniel they waited 8 years. However, no offence but I don't think her cares a lot about being the catholic head of states, since he already has two children out of wedlock.

Most likely no - my reason: Other heads of state and royals have their official engagements, schedules and appointments done far in advance. Their daily lives are arranged in appointment books. Months in advance. So I think that the wedding date has to be later - in 2011. This way it will easier for a royal head of state to arrange to attend.

I am so happy for the both of them! I had a feeling this was coming when I saw her on the guest list for Victoria and Daniel's wedding. Charlene will make a lovely bride and princess.

But I think Wills and Kate should send a "thank you"-letter to Monaco, because Albert and Charlene took a lot of pressure from them. Now everyone is happy about and busy with this wedding and Wills and Katie have a little more time for their big announcement. Because let's face it: Everyone was expecting those two to be the next royal wedding couple.
I completely agree!!
