let Princess Grace lay in peace, if she was there, she will be happy for her son like any mother does, Charlene does not look like Princess and will never be a second Princess Grace, she will be herself and those say That say Charlene is ugly, I do not know them but are they so pretty to say that nasties about Charlene, begin to look yourselves before saying critics on the other person. I look the other boards on other royal families, il is here so many nastis things.

There is a clear difference from being presented in a way that is reminiscent of Grace to actually looking like her. This is not an attack on Charlene or an attempt to diminish Grace's stature. These are merely comments/observations about the way this particular photo shoot has chosen to portray Charlene

My hope is that Charlene will be able to shrug off many of the criticisms heaped on her. I would not want her to end up like some of the female Consorts who become ill and depressed because of the huge emotional demands placed on them through their own people, as well as the media, and - sadly - ourselves who add a little to the overall pressure.

If coffee shops and shoe stores are her idea of modernity I think she should let Albert to all the work. I had a pretty positive opinion of Charlene until this interview came out, and I still don't dislike her and I wish her nothing but the best -but my goodness I was disappointed for everyone by this. She just said so many things that you *don't* say in public and certainly not to an elitist society mag. For example, if after all this time she has only 2 real friends in Monaco I think that might say more about her than it does about them. Alot of royal brides have faved major difficulties (feuding family members, political tensions, religious bigotry etc) and you did not hear any of them mention their complaints in public. It is just something you don't do. After reading through it I wanted to ask her if she wanted any cheese with her whine.

Charlene would be wise to copy Charlotte and PC. Let them take your picture and say as little as possible. Even PG had trouble with the press and she was very savy.

100 agree!

What I find difficult to understand is why Albert or his press agency is allowing these kind of remarks to make it into print. Surely everyone wants Charlene to get off to a good start in Monaco, so why aren't they making a greater effort to protect her from these potential gaffs?

Thanks for that bit of wisdom Elly C
Certainly makes one wonder indeed.....

Is there any way that can be done? Protect her from herself? From speaking?

The important thing is not that this was printed but that this is the way she thinks.

I doubt they can censor something once it has been said, but you would think they would have someone with her to smooth things over.

I blame it mostly on her "South African humour".....but, joking aside, CW may find that life as a "loose cannon" will not be comfortable. It's not enough to have learnt how to make a curtsey. Getting along with people is needed, as is a modicum of good sense, knowing when to keep one's mouth shut, and much more...

Here in the US, every chic, elegant First Lady or potential First Lady is "the new Jackie Kennedy!"...in Britain every hot new princess is "the new Diana!"

And in much of Europe they are trying to tout Charlene as "the new Grace!"

My point is that it is boring and silly. There is not and will NEVER be another Jacqueline Kennedy, Diana Spencer, or Grace Kelly. There doesn't need to be...they were remarkable women unique to their time on the historical stage. They cannot be replaced...time to move on!!

My personal observation regarding CW prior to her entrance on the Monaco stage is that she was almost a DEAD RINGER for the late Linda Eastman McCartney...former Beatle Paul McCartney's first wife...same nose, same mouth, bone structure and coloring...it's uncanny IMO.

Google her and see what I mean.

Moonmaiden, I like your post.....

I, too, get tired of hearing/reading that someone is "the NEW somebody".

It's a pity that people no longer consult the Greek philosophers who came up with the phrase: There is nothing new under the sun.

Checking out some of the French coverage of National Day, I noticed that CW has already been elevated to Première Dame by the press.....although there are eight months to go before she can assume her title.

what interview did she have that turn out bad (or should we say it shows us her true nature)she has had a lot of time to improve her mind, make friends and learn a new language but has she? from what i have heard about this interview, it sounds like she is shopping and sitting on the couch eating bonbons...just my thought im off to c about will n kates wedding........ i love weddings :)

Well, which would you prefer, Semisquare ? Do you think she should "try to remake herself after Grace"? Which is her true nature, in your opinion?

How do we know she is shopping/sitting on couch/eating sweets?
For all we know, she might be getting a bit more serious about her future role.
Rather than making a bid for the Monaco Starbucks, she might learn a bit more French - you never know...

Semisquare, the only instance I remember of Charlene's charitable efforts was when she attended a Ladies Lunch. Other posters might know of other such occasions...
