And I'm sure they're foremost and important in their mothers' lives. Just as the other Prince Rainier grandchild who shares similar birth circumstances.

I realize the importance and tradition and practice of legitimate heirs and I'm sure the monarch will certainly take care of that in his own time. But human-wise and biologically, it takes the same kind of mitosis and cell division and same number of chromosomes and the same paternal dna in this case. We all have our Cause Celelebre (?). They're mine.
Prince Charles coined the term "spare" when he quoted they now had a heir and a spare.

I think Consuelo Vanderbilt, duchess of Marlborough, coined the term for her two sons. There's a lovely picture of her with them in Blenheim.

Sorry, I have tried reading back, but why are we talking about "spares" on this thread?

This speculation is getting old. Until we hear something of concrete evidence I agree with Zonk. By the way where is Irelands flag?

Thanks Grievinan and Ysbel. As you can see I'm not up on royalty. But those two people you mentioned were human beings prone to frailties and mistakes.

Considering that particular post and say some other foregoing situations and threads surrounding those children, I was afraid there was some disdain intended. It still sounds unkind. But thank you. I really had my dukes up!!!

It looks like Charlene now has a bodyguard. The guy with the beard is the same man that was with her at the Giorgio Armani store opening and fashion show. Interesting.

We haven't seen Charlene and PA for a while. It seems more than one months. I wonder what's up. We seem them separately only. We can see that Charlene is in Monaco often in the same time as PA...
Interesting. Let's wait what would happen....

I am surprised that she did not attend the Oktoberfest this year. But this can be interpreted in any direction - they could have split and she will fade into oblivion or she is being prepared for the big announcement.

As usual we'll have to wait and see what happens.

SOME GREAT PHOTOS, a collective from several major events.
This is like a slow motion picture of them over time.
Does it look like love? Or a puppy tale keeping him occupied?
Whatever it is, they seem to look happy most of the time when
they are together. And that they have some similar interests.
Cheers, all !!

Bachelor for life what is left to say I don't need to even mention the m word because it just not fall into place.They will continue to stay an item until one gets tired of the other.That is why his sister will succeed him if she outlives him and become the second sovereign princess in Monaco's history.

SHE SEEMS TO BE REALLY INTO THIS LIFESTYLE, CENTRE OF ATTENTION and entourage, paparazzi, stylin walk, and being surrounded by men.

Thumbs up

if albert is happy with her the way they are now and she's satisfied as well, then let them be
all this pressure, all this media hype is exactly what Albert's been trying to avoid his whole life, I think he will marry Charlene, but it will be on HIS terms, when he decides it's the right time

In those pics from PGA Albert and Charlene looked just like two old buddies, not couple. I still don't see those two in any relationship, just friends pretending to be a couple for fun. It seem that Albert still needs Charlene for photo ops.

Lakshmi, I totally agree with you, They don't have any kind of chemistry going on between them.

Maybe he should just give her the crown, and save them both the trouble of a marriage. She does seem rather animated when she gets around men and more uncomfortable around women , it appears that way at least?
