The Princess of Monaco never looks very happy (she remind me of Diana, Princess of Wales).

I wonder if Princess Charlene and Prince Albert have a happy marriage.

Now I do hope they produce at least a heir, because the prospect of "Prince Sacha" freaks me out.

I would think that the workings of her womb and the nature of their relationship is something that is entirely their own business and no one elses.
They certainly looked quite happy in the recent French documentary about a year in the life of Albert, and I liked the scene when they were waving from the balcony but holding hands behind their backs.

Well, but that's exactly the purpose of this thread. "Prince Albert and Princess Charlene's Relationship - Part 2"

I do believe that they will have children eventually, but as was the case with them getting married, they will not allow outside pressure to rush them into parenthood.
Well said!!

I still don`t know why Charlene and Albert got married. Looking back at the wedding, there were absolutely NO love or warmth between them whats so ever. Even Albert`s wedding speech was just embarrasing, what was he thinking? And seeing them together on events, they both look so miserable. I belive that this marriage is just a "business deal" and nothing else

I confess I also was uncomfortable with the footage I viewed but I cannot understand how it can be a business deal. What is the benefit for each? Especially her? And if there are children, what person would put them through such an arrangement?

It does not make sense, so I must think that they were reacting to all the negative press at the time?

I definitely don't think that their marriage is just a business agreement, in fact I believe they are truly in love. There are many, many examples of spontaneous gestures of affection between them, both in footage of the wedding and on occasions thereafter. I'm thinking in particular of their recent visit to Palau where she spontaneously took his hand, at a recent charity function where she kissed him, last year's Red Cross Ball where they kissed and danced very closely. On his part, one notices that he always has his arm around her or he's holding her hand. With regards to the wedding footage we must bear in mind that these may have been edited in such a way as to feed the speculation and rumours at the time. I have incidentally just watched some of the longer unedited coverage of the religious ceremony as well as a longer version of P Albert's speech in the wedding thread and I saw many glances, looks, smiles, hand holding that suggest to me that they were happy to get married.

The speech of prince Albert during his wedding was not poor

– Jeg tror dette er den beste beslutningen jeg har tatt - Kultur-og-underholdning - NRK

We saw Charlene kissing The hand of Albert with many love. I sent the link of the official video of the wedding on Daylimotion, it is the weeding filmed of other side and we see The couple laughing, hand crosses or speaking.

I am ok with C4A, there are many vidos of Albert and Charlene holding their hands, kissing or dancing during the red cross gala or in Palau or the kiss of Charlene to Albert at the saint david gala.I often send you these videos and at my surprise, there are never posts after the sending of these posts.

Charlene was the girlfriend of Albert from 2006 to 2012, there were many gestures of love between them and I read from some persons who already said 'itis not true, they will never marry.

And my Got! Why would Albert find a girl who lived 8000 kms from the principality, Who did not speak french, who was protestant and not catholic, who did not know the rules of the fashion, the courtyard of Monaco if it is a deal wedding? He could find a girl speaking french, smart, catholic, living near the principauty, knowing the rules of Monaco . Many wifes wanted to be a princess of Monaco and he had the choice. he could stay not married , he always said that Caroline, her chidren Stephanie and her chidren can be heirs of monaco and then princes or princesses of monaco.

Prince Albert and Charlene always win against the tabloids which wrotte bad rumors about his wedding. he said also that now, he knew the name of the persons who said that Chaelene tried to fly to South Africa before the wedding.

You are right of course, Melina P. He could have married anyone if he just wanted to have an heir, even one of the mothers of his children. The link you posted of his speech is the one that I was referring to and the Dailymotion videos do provide a better coverage of the ceremony. I really don't understand how anyone can still doubt the love between these two, especially if you think of the pics from the Olympics...

What are your reasons for thinking it is a business deal PrincessLuna?

I wonder if I was manipulated by the media at the time. I had not seen this speech (thank you for the link Melina) and although I do not see a couple madly in love - normal if you have been an item for so long - they do seem comfortable with each other, unlike footage I have viewed previously.

I would love to know what you think as I really don't see the business deal.

What say you?

There are rumors that Charlene can't get pregnant due to an injury during her swimming career. And if that is the fact Albert married her despite the possibility of getting children and an heir to the throne.

What more prove of real love do we need???????

And I guess not being "madly in love" in public is just the nature of Albert and especially Charlene!

Rumors rumors

Which injury may prevent a woman from getting pregnant? a desease, yes but we have never seen an injury prevent a woman from getting pregnant. a big idiotie !It is one more rumor invented by english and german tabloids who do not know what to imagine on that couple.

A story worthy of serials as Dallas with escape before the wedding, a sad princess, paternity tests deal mariage. After one year and a half we did not see anything of this. No escape the princess stayed at the palace, she was presented to the pape, she has a fondation, she has the orders of Grimaldi, she attends to the big events in the principauty as the official visit of Ban KImoon and so... and we saw many love gestures between Albert and Charlene .

We will not put a camera in their bedroom to check a prove!

The only injury I ever read about, and I just did a bit of searching, was to her shoulder which affected her ability to compete for about 18 months.

The former National Coaching Director of the South African Swimming federation told me
Quote:
she struggled with chronic injuries which restricted her from competing
injuries plural. I recall reading somewhere back in 2006 I think it was something about her ankle, I think she broke it.

Injury or not, it is very strange that Charlene is not pregnant yet. One would think that the woman well in her 30s & marrying a royal should be in a hurry to get pregnant soon. Charlene, I'm sure, knows that having a child (the heir) is very expected of her. I remember how reluctant she was about having children in her first interviews after engagements.
This relationship has been always very strange: no spark, no interacting, not even familiarity that can be so easily spotted between people who have been intimate. No wonder many believe that PA and Charlene's marriage is a business deal.
Those posters who wonder what kind of deal can be for Charlene? Well: money, position

Excactly my point.
This "rumor" looks more like reality to me. What are they waiting for?!
I didn't believe it at first but the longer there is no pregnancy the more I'm wondering if there is some truth about it.

I think everyone should give the rumors a rest. When it's time for them to get pregnant, it will happen. Rumors was started for William & Catherine too and now their baby will arrive in July.

It will happen for Albert & Charlene. Give them time and space.

I think people should be a careful by writing, " why isn`t Charlene pregnant yet". Keep in mind that NOT all woman can become pregnant.
