As to the kissing .... I think I mentioned earlier on that, to state the obvious - :-) neither of the two had been married before.

That means they have not had the feelings of a newly-married man or woman. I know it's probably seen as stating the obvious, but there is a significant change in emotions at the ceremony.

During ministry training we were not just looking at the legal side (filling out the registers correctly etc.), but - far more importantly - the "change of state" which can be enormous with some people.

I hope this quote from Prince Albert (the second quote posted here) puts an end to all of the wasting of time dissecting every kiss, hotel arrangement and emotional expressions of the newlywed Prince and Princess of Monaco. As long as they both wanted this marriage and intend to uphold their duties to the Monegasques, I don't think it's fair for anyone to keep trying to peer into their most private emotions and especially not into their sleeping arrangements nor their most intimate marital life.

I don't think becoming Princely or Royal makes one no longer entitled to privacy in these most personal of matters. I like to "Royal Watch" along with most who post on these boards, but I still maintain the Royals are entitled to privacy of the heart and bedroom and those subjects are not really fit for discussion, IMHO.

The mediatisation of people's lives is something we can no longer reverse. Those who willingly expose themselves to the limelight have to bear the consequences of their decisions.

This does not apply to people like Albert. He was mediatised from a very early age, and not by his own wish.

I disagree Renata. PC's court ruling win on privacy basically said it is an unalienable right no matter who you are. Also in the US our President and his family is given complete privacy. Especially for their children. We are not so good with entertainers and sports figures, but part of that is publicity stunts or started that way and got out of control. eg. Brittany Spears and Lindsey Lohan. I think one of the reasons we don't hear more about the Monaco royals is because they are blocking the pictures to the US and our press accepts it. Any mention of royals in the US is legitimate news or PR.

Giving them and especially their children some privacy is very important.
Look how well Will and Harry turned out without being photographed all the time.
And they need time for themselves to really grow as a married couple.

Wills and Harry had an easier time with the paparazzi because the Palace made deals with the newspapers, so that the boys only had to do a certain number of photo sessions.

As for the kiss, I frankly didn't take much notice, it is all the other truly nasty media reports that I was referring to.
I am in total agreement with . This was clearly an orchestrated campaign to cause maximum damage to Prince Albert, Princess Charlene and the Principality itself, Monaco.

As to the kiss? Well I don't know about anyone else, but for me kissing is a passionate but intensely private action, not a theatrical production. PA and Charlene seem a little shy and not given to over PDA's, as such their behaviour is totally predictable.

There are many ways of kissing, and everyone has his/her limits.

But the two should have been prepared for the necessity to exchange a peck or two for the cameras - after all, it was their wedding !!

These are people constantly in the limelight, and they had orchestrated their wedding like a military operation.

The necessity to kiss on command? There is something quite disgusting about that; reminds me of the old times when couples had to consummate their marriage in front of the court. Who cares if Charlene and Albert's kiss was awkward or Kate and William's was passionless and practiced. How a couple makes out in public is not an indication of how long they will last or what kind of relationship they have in private. If that were the case than Angelina and Billy Bob would still be together and Elizabeth and Philip wouldn't have lasted a year.

Over on the current events forum, there are a few comments about Albert not wearing his wedding ring at recent engagements. Isn't this a small sign of Albert being perfectly relaxed about the secuirty of his marriage to Charlene? If the marriage was floundering, IMO such outward symbols of marriage would to be on show at all times to avoid speculation.

We can not make deductions from the wedding ring. Prince william does not wear at all but everyone agrees that he is very in love with catherine.
I think the delicate point with albert and charlene is that prince albert for more than 30 y gave the impression that he was not going to marry anyone . So people were used to see with him some beauties but without happy outcome. Even charlene lasted some years, and suddenly he decided... Some people thought that something "was artificial" with this wedding, and the rumours about charlene ready to stop everything did not help the situation. The wedding arrived and people were ready to read any sign of non normal sitation: kiss cold, lack of expressed passion, a crying bride, a not veryhappy father, separate bedrooms, etc etc

Very well said.
But for the fans of Albert and Charlene it would have been nicer to see a very passionate kiss. At least I would have prefered one although I do believe that they truly love eachother!

If you're disappointed in their kiss that is your problem not theirs. Charlene and Albert should only focus on making each other happy: not an insatiable public who are never satisfied. Whether the marriage is arranged, a business deal, a love match or whatever, the only people who know for sure are Charlene and Albert. Sure it looks fishy, but they are married now and I wish then (especially her) the best.

When I saw pics of Prince Albert without his alliance, I was sure that this would create a big debate! First I was surprised, and even thought that this could prove something true about past rumours...

And than, I decided to excogitate.
If there was really a problem between Charlene and Albert, he surely wouldn't exhibit his hand without alliance at a meeting with Michel Platini, knowing perfectly that he would be photographed by hundreds of paparazzis / or journalists, because it was an official appearance.
That's why I concluded that maybe he forgot to put his alliance after having washed his hands, or brushing his teeths, or simply because this alliance was too tight (because he's so happy with his wife that he forgot his diet, we can imagine anything!) and he asked Cartier to aggrandize it, or... I don't know, I have no ideas any more!!

Its not as if everyone doesn't know he is married, and lots of married men do not wear wedding rings so I think this is much ado about nothing.

When and where? I am not sure what you are referring to, as your English, far better than my French, is quite difficult. If he wasn't wearing a ring, so what. But in all the pictures I have seen him in, he has worn a slim wedding band. All this supposition, is nonsense.
