Looks like a mutual visit - PA hosted Princess Hitachi on July 13th, 2010, at the art exhibition "Kyoto-Tokyo".

The small pins they are wearing look alike, although his has a red stone and hers looks yellow. Is this some sort of event symbol? Anyone know?

Mmm...again, the attempting to make her look like Grace...but she looks more like a widow..
Albert does look good though.
The best of this: the cause.

It is first so high profile event abroad--since their engagement-- that Albert takes Charlene.
IMO Albert did not lose weight, it is his tailored suit that does a miracle.

I am confused on what Charlene is supposed to wear as so not to appear Grace like.

She is a tall blonde. As Grace was a somewhat famous model, an Academy Award winning actress and a style icon as a Princess...is there anything that she hadn't done or worn prior to her death? There is always going to be a Grace comparison for Charlene. There isn't a color or jewel that Charlene hasn't worn in the past --- that hasn't been done by Grace before. Perhaps she should dye her hair?? Is Grace the only woman to have worn some of the dresses that she wore? Maybe instead of trying to be Grace...she just happens to like the same things as Grace. I personally, like the classic style of dress that Grace wore ---- am I trying to be like her?

I for one, think that Charlene should allow her hair to grow. But other than that, she looks nice. I think its somewhat weird to bring a fiancee on a foreign tour...I don't recall that being done for any other royal house....but those Grimaldi's....always trendsetters.

Zonk, I agree with you about CW - whatever she'll wear or not wear, someone will be commenting on her clothing, hairstyle, etc.

But it's not her fault that she is a tall blonde. She tries to fit in with PA's lifestyle, and, much of the time, she succeeds in that endeavour.

The "Grace" issue will always be there, and both PA and CW are well used to it being referred to. It's the public that has the problem, not the two of them.

Actually, there is one aspect which connects the two women: both have made a home in Monaco after having made a long journey to settle in Monaco. Grace did experience hostility when she arrived and married her Prince, and so does/did Charlene. Both had/have issues about not speaking French well enough.

The detractors can be won over in time, but the lack of speaking the two main languages of the community (French and Monegasque) can't be fixed in a hurry, and it can present a strong, but not permanent barrier.

I wonder if Grace has still a special meaning for the younger generations in Monaco...

Beautiful .... yes.... elegant ..... yes ..... but I agree with Nathalie - her stare is disconcerting, to say the least.

Good Morning Ladies:

Charlene always had that far away look, remember she is just accompanying him, it's not about her. She is not asked to speak, or give her opinion, yet. She is just buy his side.
