I agree. I am not commenting on whether there is any truth to whatever "the story" was..

But CW has cast her fate with PA and with Monaco apparently, so there is no turning back now....

Same problem here. All I know is that PA and the Palace are seriously rattled if they are sending Albert's much loved youngest sister out to do damage control....yikes.

PS could have spoken out on her own. This all seems very vague and too neatly timed. If they have something why aren't they being more detailed and why wait until now to release it. It is very cruel to release it now.

I'm with you. Before anyone came up with it in the press I read it on Eringers site. My guess is someone posted it there to cause trouble and the press took off with it. As I posted Charlene was in Greece when this showed up on the blog. Albert left behind some women who are very jealous he isn't marrying them. "Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned".

Unfortunately I fully expected something like this to happen, and I would bet dollars to navy beans I know who is behind it, or mixed up in it in one way or another, but I won't mention any names as the last thing this "person" should be given is more attention. The whole thing is utterly absurd. Charlene knew all about Albert's "past" long ago, nothing could shock her into leaving now. Also, as others have mentioned, if she had been trying to get on a plane in Nice the French police could not have stopped her -that's just silly. The Prince of Monaco can expel people from the southern departments, he cannot take anyone prisoner. This is all the work of someone with a grudge trying to hurt the Prince at the worst possible time.

Ugh, that name! I first heard of that name and that facebook site when Renata posted it about a month ago on here , thankfully one of the moderators caught it and deleted it, as it was full of malicious lies/gossip/rumour/innuendo/et al to hurt not only Prince Albert, but the Principality in general, including the Monesgasques.

The best thing to do is to ignore it, take away its powers, its negativity. So that is what I am going to do -- ignore it. Bye bye!

Bones I also have an inkling who could be behind this but I have to agree that Cw could have escaped if she had wanted to. I do not however think it is utterly absurd just somewhat. Enjoy the wedding. looking forward to your wise commentaries

I'm french and I read sometimes l'Express; it's not a tabloid, so if there was a rumour on the web from twitter or facebook or anything else, the newspaper wont publih it untl it's checked by journalists.

The Telegraph yesterday had an interview with the director of the L'EXPRESS and Christophe Barbier (a very very well known political journalist, not a people one).

And they are sure from their sources and check every details. So of course the timing is not nice.

But let's enjoy the wedding, we know for sure that something in the press will be revealed just after. iF Albert did something silly, what a pity, if it's not the case He will be entitled to sue them.

From my point of view, what is disturbing is the type of newspaper which relates the information. I fear there is probably something true in their allegations. The article on their website this morning is quite revealing.

For the assignation of Albert's lawyer, at the last minute, they retract from suing the paper (explanation in the Telegraph).

I keep hearing how they check, double check and check again -but it doesn't add up. If they are so certain of their "facts" why do there seem to be so few of them? How could Charlene be in Greece and Nice at the same time? Why would French police use force to keep her in the country? If they are sure of why she was allegedly leaving, why is the actual reason not mentioned at all? They hardly reported any "facts" at all to check, only vague implications.

You may call me cynical, but it's possible that the whole affair has been staged by the Palace, to garner even more publicity.

After so many interviews to "sell" this wedding, with little sucess, I would not be surprised at all. So classles as usual.

At the end of the day ... if anyone knows of any lawful impediment why these two should not be joined in marriage let him speak now or forever hold his peace.

If Albert knows of any lawful impediment this must not come out after the wedding ---- Albert needs to make it known now.

It is then up to the two of them where they go from there.

If this is all nasty and malicious spite (which I believe it is) then the two of them will come out the stronger for it.

In which case I hope he sues the whole lot of them!

Negative news is not animosity. If this is true, this is freedom of information and journalism. Animosity would be name calling added to the information.

LOL! You really need to lighten up, and start enjoying life...maybe you can start feeling this notion of "happiness" that Charlene and her Prince may actually feel. It's a great feeling...trust me on this one.

As she is still technically a private citizen of South Africa, no one could "stop" her from boarding a plane. As many have suggested, the timeline of her "fleeing" coincides with her stay in Greece. Mind you, as a royal, no one could stop her either.

Hopefully HSH Prince Albert and the soon-to-be HSH Princess Charlene will sue the living cr@p out of the "informer"

Here is a paper of Le Figaro with further details, explaining links between the monegasque security force and the french police: Le Figaro - France : Monaco*: la rumeur circulait dès dimanche
I didn't know that french higher civil servants were employed in monegasque police and I don't think it comes as something good. And, for the non-french speaking posters, the article says Charlene had her passport confiscated by the french police. I hope it is not true because it wouldn't be a matter of pride for french police, which has already very bad reputation.

The journalist's papers are often criticized being to much police-sided in security matters but he may have very close sources in the french police because he belongs (or belonged) to the french Control Group of Police Files/Groupe de Contrôle des Fichiers de la Police (that is easily checked on Google), so...

It is getting weirder every day.

Thank you for the link, Sancia.
If French police acted on French soil following orders of the Monegasque Security Force, even confiscating the passport of a South African citizen as alleged, this is indeed raising questions as well as possibly causing damage on a political level.
And, again: 'Le Figaro' as well as 'L'Express' are not tabloids, but possess credibility and thus have a good reputation to loose; it's highly improbable that they'd risk it by inventing a whole story just like that.

Thanks for the info on the links between the Monaco Government and that of the French Republic. It's only natural, in view of the various treaties and cooperation that exist between the two. We're no longer in the Fifties/Sixties when General de Gaulle misused his powers regarding the Principality.

Whatever happened the wedding is going to go ahead. It has been said that Charlene will not take part in many official ceremonies, probably because, again I repeat, it is said, that she doesn't know French and seems not to be language inclined as far as French is concerned. The newspapers that have printed this news, now "old hat" would not print it if they did not have impeccable sources. If there was a problem I doubt it existed in the past but is something she found out or saw for herself very recently.

Let's hope that the ceremonies will help to "take the shine off" what has been written about them.
