It would be lovely if we could watch it outside France. If not, perhaps Santa Claus might up load it as a late Christmas gift for Royal Forum members.

To day, there is an article on the site of the princess Charlene Foundation which celebrats his first anniversary.

La Fondation Princesse Charlène de Monaco célèbre son premier anniversaire | Fondation Princesse Charlène de Monaco

We can also read this article on monaco Channel and on the official page of FB but it is not translated in french

I will try to do a very short resume , the foundation will go on his actions 'learn to swim' in Marocco and in South Africa.
The most important project will be the opening of a learning center of sea rescue in monaco for the pupils of all the colleges of Monaco.
There will be 'learn with swim in four towns of france' Dinar, CapBreton, Montpellier and rennes' it will be for underprivileged children.
There will be actions in france , canasa and in California.
There are projects of program 'learn to swim' in Thailand, Mauritania.

translation of the announce of the palace about the ' foundation Princess Charlene'

https://www.facebook.com/permalink.p...60414860659443

I recall when the foundation was done in december 2012 the comments of some persons who criticed this foundation and doubted of its sucess. I see that Charlene nad the foundation did a good job this year and that there will actions in the world.

Perhaps Charlene does not speak very well french but she does a good job in Monaco and also in France . She does also a good job for the children who are autist and for children who have a orphan desease ( she is president of honor of their association)

Agreed, Melina P, the Foundation has indeed been busy in 2013. It is good to see that it is succeeding with its goals. Also, many projects are lined up for 2014 and nice to see them expanded to countries like Bangladesh and Mauritania where resources are maybe limited. I'm sure P Charlene and also her husband are very proud of her achievements during the year.

I read an article on world-renouned (russian) clown Oleg Popov, he has been living in Germany for 20 years and admitted that he still doesn't speak german, so P.Charlene still has some years time

All the sincerity in the world does not make up for the fact that almost a decade in she can not carry on even the most basic of conversations in the language of the people she purports to love and represent. If this were Mary or Maxima everyone would be up in arms, not making excuses. People still criticize Mary or Maxima for mistakes in grammar but they at least they have each made an effort and devoted themselves to learn their adopted countries language. Charlene has not even done that.

Charlene has a Responsibility to learn the language, period. She has all the resources available to do so. It is just plain lazy at this point. Even an attempt to show the people she is trying would be better.

As for the interview...This was falsely billed as an interview of Charlene and it only shows her briefly, her voice is never heard, only a translation. I know she does not interview well from past videos so they are careful to control her presence. Still, this was no interview. It was a quick parrot about her "works" which she repeats again and again in different mediums. Time for a new script that discusses how she devotes more time to attempting the language.

It is more accurate to describe it as a documentary of Monaco with most of the interviews by Albert and others who do speak French. Pity.

I watched it live. I can confirm this is NOT the case. She spoke in English. Her own voice was never heard and there was only a french translator. The "interview" was brief. Albert made more of an interview than she did. She spoke mainly about her "cause" which she seems to repeat verbatim constantly like a script.

Oh gosh. Just saw that... I have to say I'm very disappointed , I think she can hardly speak HER OWN language, just right as a script. Why cannot she try or make some effort to speak French? No one cares about mistakes... I make them all the time... The important thing is to be understood!

As far as I know, from what I have read on the Forums and video clips that I have seen, P Charlene
1. Can understand the French language perfectly
2. Speaks French in situations where she feels comfortable such as informal conversations with individuals
3. Sings the National Anthem, wears traditional costume, thereby showing her loyalty to the Monegasque people
4. Is under little, if any, pressure from her husband to speak the language -- just my opinion

I am therefore curious to know why it is so important for some posters that she should be fluent in the language. Maybe some French/Monegasque posters can share with us how strongly they feel about it?
