The Sunday Times report the disappointment of Prince Albert regarding the media coverage of the wedding and the TV transmission on the big days. The Principality fixed at 3millions dollars the right to retransmission on TV, but some channels are beginning to refuse to pay and do the transmission. They argued that the wedding of W+K was free of rights and that in no way now they accept to pay for Prince Albert. So a few channels (they dont mention which one) decide not to transmit live the wedding. Other infos sorry I forgot, I try to reconnect -I have an abonnement???, the times stories are not free=

The former conductor of its symphony orchestra, "L'Orchestre Phiharmonique de Monte-Carlo", died in March, and they have not yet found someone who can take his place for the wedding.

At the same time, MONACO's hotel workers have voted for a strike in the days when the wedding must take place.

The article is too long... I'm not speaking good english so to understand I have to copy and paste in Google traduction for a french version and I do a short story for you.

the retransmission on the wedding of Prince Albert and Charlene Wittstock is free of rights now, at the beginning in november the channels had to pay , but the team of the wedding changed of mind, now thr retransmission is free of rights, there are many tv, all the european tv will cover this wedding, there are asks of japanese, chinese and so, what are you saying Rosapru is no more actuallity

There is an another chief of the Harmony, there are many events at the opera now may, june happily, it dosn't stop, for the strike of workers, they are not of the hotels, but they are the croupiers the men and women who work at the casino, all you are reading come of the eringer blog who is in justice again Prince Albert he is not a clear man, he tried wth the IOC with corruption , he did not succeed and Prince Albert and his lawer attaccker him in march, the president of IOC that all eringer said about had any fondements in a letter now, he tries otherwise

What has Eringer to do with "The Wedding" ?? Come to that, what have the IOC, the croupiers, the lawyer, the chief of the Harmony (??), and all the rest, to do with the wedding ??

Let's concentrate on the actual event, i.e. the wedding ceremonies. Anything else is superfluous and detracts from them.

*************
Rosapru, your English is perfectly adequate :-)

I have no clue whether Eringer has to do with it or not
To me it looks rather like a journalist who has done his homework and not simply printed the press releases of the Palace...

Here is the link to the entire: article:Monaco | Search | The Sunday Times

Just wondering, does Charlene live in the palace with Albert? It would seem only right in the modern world.

It is nice to think she is close to Princess Stephanie and Alberts family. I just don't understand why they cannot live together in this day and age. It could hardly have anything to do with public image since Albert already has children outside of marriage and he and his sisters hardly live a strict catholic life. I just don't see the point of them having different homes.

Albert and Charlene have been together quite a while it seems a pity they do not live together. Looking forward to the wedding.

Yes - and Albert prefers to travel without her.
While Charlene is getting tired from traveling with Albert because it is very educational but exhausting.

Can you imagine these two being married and HAVE to travel and live together - being bound to each other?

Some couples part after being foced to really share each others life.

Being engaged or even married does not mean you are tied at the ankle to each other and that you have to be together 24/7. Charlene accompanied Albert on official visits to Japan and Ireland and people on these boards criticized them for travelling together unmarried and now they are being criticized for not taking every trip together. Jeez, its a no win situation.

And your basis for such a statement? Can you provide a link to an article and/or interview which states that 1) Charlene is tired of traveling with Albert and 2) Albert prefers to travel without her.

The attack of the gorgons!

Seriously, one has to wade through all the stuff just to get some news. And on that score thank you, melina premiere, per usual for providing some valuable info.

I didn't know that Charlene lived with Stephanie and her family at one point. I think that's great! And now if I had to make an educated guess I would say Princess Stephanie will be her Maid of Honor, as it should be.

It was just of at the beginning when she arrived in May 2007, Princess Caroline proposed also to Charlene to live in her propriety because Princess Caroline lived yet with Prince Ernst August of Hanover in Saint Germain in Paris and Charlene also pasted winter holidays in Zurs with the family of Caroline. Charlene said in Tatler that she likes to see a family united . It is why she is well accepted by the prince's sisters.
Not need to answer to the attack of the gorgons as you are saying it Nadine above

Facts, logic, reality - who feels attacked?
1) Charlene herself stated in an interview with Jenny Crwys Williams in February 2011 that traveling with the Prince and learning about the things he is doing is tiring:
Talk Radio 702 - The Best Of Jenny Crwys Williams
Asked for plans for the near future she said she is looking fwd to some "alone time, down-time and off-time". Doesn't sound like a woman who is looking fwd to be involved or able to share Alberts world.

2) If he would like to travel with Charlene he would take her with him on journeys to S.A., to America or trips to Paris - not only on official visits or events they are invited due to protocol. Instead he goes there without her and looks happy!

Perhaps she is so bored by her life and all its advantages?
If so, it doesn't sound like a "real" relationship.....

Okay...enough.

This constant harping and bashing Charlene is getting very tiresome and will not be tolerated. If we can't have a civil discussion (both positive and negative) without blaming her for everything under the sun (Albert's weight, the policies of Monaco, etc.) than perhaps some changes need to be made.

Any questions need to be directed towards a Monaco Moderator and/or TRF Administrator via PM.

Anything posted in the threads will be deleted without notice.

Ah, the color green always seems to rear its ugly head.

Charlene is Charlene, not Grace. Grace is no more. Time marches on.

And we're talking about an intelligent, well-read, highly traveled, multilingual 53 yr. old man, whom has had many lovers over the decades, not some young oaf newly arrived to the marriage mart. Lol, give Albert some credit. :)


ps: sorry for going off-topic, but these latest posts urged me to respond, lol.
