I think they love each other, I just think people don't want them together for what ever reasons they might have. Charlene has looked much happier lately I think she has finally settled into her role as Princess.

I have no problem with people's opinions! I find some comments made here nasty, and don't accept the logic "I don't like your post; it's nasty". But it doesn't bother me.

Yes, I find Albert physically unattractive, and I don't think he's a mental genius either. - I find it's perfectly acceptable to post "Haakon of Norway looks very good" or "Felipe of Spain is handsome", so I think it's equally acceptable to post if one thinks the opposite applies.

I am perfectly happy for Charlene and Albert to madly in love, and have no need to prove they are or they aren't. Whatever.

But I do think Charlene would have deserved better. It's just my opinion, and I have no need to prove myself "right" or "wrong".

@ redtulip: Nobody is questioning your right to have an opinion, but there are norms of decency. When comments become insulting, like some of the things you have said about Prince Albert, well, that’s simply uncivilised. If you really like Charlene – as you claim – you will show a little respect for her choices (i.e. her husband) and restraint in your comments. It’s perfectly fine not to like him , but it’s not okay to criticise his physical appearance and intellect the way you have. I doubt you have ever met or interacted with him, so you are hardly qualified to be so outspoken (about him). And even if you have, it would still not be polite to be so insulting. A little self-editing goes a long way.

Back to the topic. PA and PC seem happy and content, comfortable with each other and in their relationship. It can’t be easy to be the focus of so much attention, pressure, expectation and criticism with every move they make, but they’re managing perfectly fine. Couples express their love and affection in different ways, and besides, we only get to see little glimpses of their lives together. I love it when they prove ‘haters’ wrong, and that intimate moment at the heliport was certainly one such occasion.

redtulip, if you find Albert unpleasant physically, then I feel sorry for you. There are millions of men that would not live up to your expectation but I can vouch for the fact that there are some jewels in the bunch. If you can't look past looks, then you lose.

Just try to accept this; I do not care. It's fine by me to post whatever you like. Go ahead and continue to post whatever you like! It's fine.

I find myself agreeing with redtulip on Albert's physical appearance. I certainly don't drool when I see him. He doesn't seem to care much about his clothing, either. But it's possible he's a very charming and likeable bloke when you get to know him, and great company. I hope so, anyway, for Charlene's sake. They seem to me to look quite happy together in these recent photos.

I totally agree! People view things differently, and that's fine. And as I said, I find Haakon very attractive, and think at least Mette-Marit would agree with me!

Take e.g. Charlene & Albert wedding. Some may have seen tears of joy on Charlene, but I didn't think they were tears of joy. Victoria of Sweden cried with joy when she married Daniel (my view :)). Charlene cried for some other reason.

Albert and William-Alexander of the Netherlands don't appeal to me in terms of appearances. But I think of W-A as a pleasant person and a responsible father of three. Albert does not fit the bill in my thinking.

It's excellent if Charlene and Albert are happy. It's less excellent if they're not happy. Either way, people will always comment on their looks and goings-on. What happens between them is their call.

[Charlene cried for some other reason.]//quote

Charlene gave an interview a few months ago where she frankly discussed her wedding and why she wept. Quite simply she was overwhelmed at everything...the lavish State ceremony, the unseemly rumors swirling, the realization that all eyes were on her unleashed a flood of pent up emotion.

She categorically denied that she cried because she was unhappy, despite what people believe or want to believe.

Yes, I also read that she denied crying because she should have been unhappy.

Prince Albert spoke to the Commonwealth Club audience at the International Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco, California on February 24, 2014. "The State of the Oceans in the Modern World" was the theme of his talk, according to the Princely Palace Princess Charlene attended the event as well, but she is not pictured:

Melina premiere and I were referring to the information given on the Palace's Facebook Site, melina premiere also mentioned it above. There it said on February 23:


"Le Couple princier Se rendra demain à San Francisco à l'occasion du Sommet mondial sur les océans auquel le Prince Souverain participera en tant qu'intervenant."


(The Princely Couple will visit San Francisco tomorrow on the occasion of the World Ocean Summit in which the Sovereign Prince will participate as a speaker)

Charlene is with Albert, there is this photo taken yesterday at the world oceans summit. The photo was taken by the ambassador of Monaco in USA

https://twitter.com/MONACOinUSA/stat...870721/photo/1

The site of the palace uses to mention only Albert when he has many public event and don't mention Charlene if she has no duty during the official visit.
On the official page of the palace on FB, the palace announced when they are going somewhere even if Charlene has no duty.

Now we see that Charlene was present with Albert and attended the world oceans summit
