Charlene's father Michael Wittstock has been in Germany last weekend!

He attended the Grand Week Baden-Baden horseracing event on August 25.
Here he is pictured with Baden-Baden Racing President Andreas Jacobs:

And who are you? That is his job. Grace's family were bricklayers. The Grimaldis were pirates and thieves. Stephanie has a checkered past as does her sister. Let us not go into this "royal" family or any other for that matter. We are all people.

I'm not sure suitability comes into the equation when you're already a Princess.

and Albert has two illegitimate children and God knows how many more out there.Their ancestors were not pirates, they descended from a great Genoese family, Otto Canella.The founder of the Monaco branch of the family was just trying to recapture the rock that already belonged to them even before.The pirate thing is just perpetuated by lazy journalism like Daily Mail or tabloids.

To answer your question, they are decent, ordinary middle-class folks without any sordid scandals in their past. And if that's a bad thing in your books -- that makes PC 'unsuitable' for her role -- well, I guess that's your problem.

I find it interesting that in countries where people are fairly modern/educated that they still sometimes hold to these ideas that someone's genetics make them better than any other person.

Genetics don't many anyone more 'noble' or their blood any 'bluer'.

Family members of commoners that marry into royalty always will be watched and treated like persons of interest. The Wittstocks and Middletons live near their daughters and the press will always report on anything they do. Other women that have married in to royalty, Princess Mary of Denmark, Queen Maxima of Holland have family that live outside of Europe and heir family members might not always be in Denmark or Holland. Princess Letizia of Spain and Princess Mette-Marit of Norway also have family that live in the same country where they will one day become queen consort and the press has hounded them and reported stories about Princess Letizia's sister's troubles and sensationalized the family situations of Princess Mette-Marit's family.

The press has not unearthed any scandal regarding Princess Charlene's family. They are commoners, working class people, honest people without noble pedigree or title. Ernst of Hanover had impeccable lineage. His cousins are Queen Sophia of Spain, King Constantine of Greece and so on. Even though his family had its share of gossiped about situations, he is a prince and that made him ok to marry other nobility. Commoners-stay-put-and-do-not-go-above-your-station is an old snob attitude that will not die.

Regarding the above criticism, Mike Wittstock was invited to a boxing match. No doubt because promoters want "celebrities" there. Nightclubs do this also. Invite someone known, have photos takenand promote their club. Guys talk about sports. It is a guy thing. Mike was being interviewed about boxing. Someone put a microphone in his hand and he commented on boxing. The Wittstocks and Middletons can's stay inside of their homes all day. They go out, enjoy life and are photographed. If the Middletons or Wittstocks were giving interviews about royalty and making comments and observations about politics, royalty and the economy etc.......then that would be quite odd. But attending a boxing match or enjoying an invitation to a horse race, who cares?

CONGRATULATIONS on another wedding in the family!

And the article brought a tear to my eye, so lovely and heartwarming to see how close Princess Charlene is to her immediate family, especially her grandmother (tears) and her baby brother and his wife.

The pictures are stunning, especially of Charlene, I've honestly never seen a woman wear short hair so very splendidly (with the exception of Halle Berry's recent hairdo in France). Makes me want to get one just like Charlene, la verdad!

ps:South Africa sounds wonderful, would love to visit it one day
