Finally! Great, as we were not sure if it would happen in 2012 as they said! I'm glad it's now official as it was weird that she adopts schools with her unlaunched foundation!

Here's today's press release that tells us more about the ideas and aims of the foundation. It can also be found on the official website:


Quote:
Monaco, 14th December 2012

To satisfy Her long-felt profound desire to use Her personal experience in high-level
sport and the noble values it conveys, H.S.H. Princess Charlene wished to create the
Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation in the Principality of Monaco.

The Foundation’s main vocation is to focus on the practice of Sports, starting with
swimming and rugby, as a vector for children’s education and development.
In a short film posted on Her Foundation’s website, H.S.H. Princess Charlene describes
the athletic values She supports and Her Foundation’s missions.
From the knowledge that young athletes learn during their youth the values of solidarity,
effort, self-giving and humility on which they build their personalities, the Foundation
supports children on an international scale, with three main priorities:

1. Setting up educational projects around water safety to give these children
confidence on the one hand and to help reduce drowning incidents on the other.
In this spirit, several ‘learn to swim’ and ‘water safety’ programmes will very soon be
implemented in different countries in the field to fight against this hazard which has far
too many victims each year.
2. Supporting young athletes with champion potential but lacking sufficient
resources, financial in particular, to succeed in their sports project.
The Foundation aims, for example, to distribute scholarships to a small number of young
athletes and monitor them over a number of years in order to enable them to develop
their potential.
3. Supporting sports projects involving children’s education and assistance to
families within their communities.
The projects for 2013 could focus on rugby in particular.

2
In order to bring these missions to fruition, the Foundation will have the support of
Ambassadors, top-level athletes and a team based in the Principality of Monaco.
The Board includes:
- H.S.H. Princess Charlene, President
- H.S.H. Prince Albert II, Vice President

This is a really great video presented by the Princess! She comes across as confident and believing in her cause. I also liked the little French at the end - would like to hear her speak in French more often. And she looked lovely.

I wish her well with her Foundation and hope that she will reach many en enrich and empower many lives across the world!!

It's nice that her foundation combines her love for sport and her job as a princess.
Beautiful site and video.
And I really like her logo, the 2 entwined c's that form a heart.

I'm impressed with her foundation, I think it will do a lot of good. She now has her charity work well organised; her palace home apparently re-decorated; over a year of marriage and royal experience under her belt and has received her royal order. An heir to the throne would complete the picture perfectly so I'm crossing my fingers for 2013.

Thank you for the links to the video of the Princesses's visit. Can someone maybe summarize the French commentary for us? Did she speak in French to the students? It also looks as though she may have received an "uncomfortable" question from one of the students when she was fanning herself there? Nice to see her participate in these types of events, though...

C4A, I will try to resume you the video. Excuse me for the english faults.
Princess Charlène met the students of the collège Charles III, She attended the annual christmas mass. It was very festiv. The ministre said that P Charlène spoke to the students very simply, she answered to all the questions they asked. ' the questions were ' Where will you pass your holidays this year? Is it difficult to be preincess and so...
She met the staff of teachers, she spoke to them about her foundation and about the projects she would like to see in the colleges of Monaco.

It looks like she is confident enough to speak in French to an audience, so her language proficiency must be improving!

Maybe I've missed something, I've understood around 96 % of the spoken text and interviews, but for me there was no hint whether she spoke French or English, especially as to the presentation in the end. It would of course be great if her French was already that good!

I'm not sure at all, but in the last few seconds in the video where we could hear her voice I felt she was speaking English!

We do not hear her speaking in this report, Only the wife who is speaking ( a ministre) said that she answered very kindly to the studentsn we are seing in the videos of monaco info that she was speaking to the old persons or to the children durinf the chritmas gifts Thet do not speak all english. All the reports say that she understands when somebody speaks her and she can replay in french short sentences .
We will perhaps know a little more on january 13th 2013 because there will be on the french channel M6 a report about Albert with his staff , whith his wife and with the princely family. The tv followed him during all the last year. It is said we could see for the first time the couple in their privat appartments.

If she spoke French she would have made the video of ehr foundation in French. It is easier to say somehting you have memorized than answering questions.

The video was supposed to be in a language that most people in the world would understand, thus English was the perfect choice!

The minister of the education said that Princess Charlene spoke very simply to the students and the dtudents are feeling very close to their princess and they love her.
The director of the college said that the srudents were very happy to see princess charlene and could speak with her like ordinary persons.
Those persons (you saw speaking in the video) were saying what was very important that the students were very happy to see p. Charlène and that Charlène is very close with this collège and there was a good vibe between them.
Charlene could present her foundation to a staff of teachers and present projects she would like to see in the collèges of the principality. . Try to do a speech in your own language in front of many persons ! and you will see that it is already difficult .
Chaelène did a good work.
