If you are expecting many (or any) well-dressed elegant young ladies at the Monaco Grand Prix, you will probably always be disappointed.

I did see photos of many beautifully dressed ladies, Charlotte & Charlene & Princess Beatrice to name a few. And none of them came anywhere close to Gareth's "guest". The former did not disappoint in any way/shape/form, but the latter, yegods!

But to each his own, and that is my own humble opinion. :)

Gareth can do as he pleases, I just hope he is more circumspect in the future...

Perhaps we need to cut him some slack, seeing as he is not quite as familiar to the ways of the Grimaldi....

I do not like the lady near Gareth the brother of Charlene, in a video on You Tube which shows the amber lounge, we are seing Charlene kissing her brother and the girlfriend of Gareth,they are sitting behind Prince Albert and Charlene, at the end of the video, we are seeing the other brother of Charlene Sean posing with a girl which seems well and we are seeing Gareth and his girlfriend posing after . In this sort of Gala, I agree with Renata, there are many extravagance and the dresses are very strange.

Madrid, if you go into the Picture threads, there will be images of Roc Agel - even when Rainier and Grace were living there...

Melina, the youngsters of today don't know what a proper dress is !!
But I must say that most of Charlotte's "gang" look reasonable, in the main, especially Tatjana who likes long dresses.

And of course, it's much easier for males to get dressed up, and there I have to concede that Sean and Gareth are well dressed.
Do you agree??

I have to be honest my first thought when I saw Gareth with his "guest", was this old saying: Urban Dictionary: don't **** where you eat (how true!)

That said, I cannot believe in less than a month we will finally see Charlene's side of the family, which will be brand new to me, as thus far I've only seen pics of Gareth (and one really old pic of Charlene's parents when they were young). That's it.

Ah, to see her dad walk her down the aisle, and her mom and brothers all dressed up, joined by marriage to Albert's side of the family ~ exquisite...

Yes, even in my book, they are fast becoming a reality !

I wonder how many Wittstocks will come out of the woodwork ??

I seem to remember CW or someone saying that it is a large family....

in point de vue to day, there is an interview of stephane bern who is a advisor in the communication team of the prince Albert of Monaco for the wedding, he said that the family Wittstock are there for the wedding(which is normal it is the wedding of their daughter or sister) they are living in Roquebrune, a town in france closed to Monaco.
There is a small photo of Charlene pictured with her two brothers Gareth and Sean at the moment of the grand Prize

Roquebrune is sandwiched between Monaco and Menton (France).

Unfortunately there are two Roquebrune, and both are in PACA (Provence-Alpes-Cote-d'Azur) Region. (PACA is run by PA's friend Christian Estrosi)

But "our" Roquebrune is called R.-Cap-Martin, and is in the Département Alpes-Maritimes, whereas the "other" Roquebrune is called "Roquebrune-sur-Argens and is in the Département Var.

Did Charlene's grandmother attend the wedding in Monaco? Any other relations besides her immediate family?

No, her grandmother is very old and frail, and could not make the long journey. Here's an interesting story from a local newspaper: Princess Charlene's Grandmother Celebrates Wedding in Benoni

It was reported that other family members from SA and the UK would be attending, but I unfortunately can't confirm this. Her family seems to be very media shy, which is probably a good thing -- considering how cruel the media can be. I did think her mom was very beautiful and stylish at the wedding, and her brothers so handsome... They seem to be a nice, very ordinary family.

I think the boys will have acclimatised to their new lifestyle by now !
It's a pity that Daddy Wittstock is still in SA, though.

Does this article imply they all live from the Prince? An appartment in Monaco for both her mother and brother? These people didn´t have a life before?

Did you consider for a moment how their lives have changed –– and will never be the same again? The compromises they have had to make? Yes, marrying into a wealthy family certainly has it's benefits, but marrying into this specific family (the Grimaldis) comes at a price. They will never be able to 'fly under the radar' again, so to speak. Their every move will be criticized. PA obviously considers Charlene's happiness, and the importance of having her own family close for support. You don't know anything about them –– except that there are no skeletons in their closets for you to make snide remarks about. So I guess this is the best you can do. But wait, this is your business, why?

This family is now just like the middletons= their daughter married a royal and they now have some connection to the royal family.

That unfairly diminishes Charlene's accomplishments a bit though. Was Kate distinguished before she met William? Did she become distinguished during the years she dated him? No. Charlene might not have much schooling, but she become a fantastic enough swimmer to be able to compete in the Olympics. Even Grace's family was distinguished before she became a princess: an Olympian and a Broadway playwright and, of course, Grace had her own Hollywood career.

I hardly ever watch the Olympics, but the athletes who compete in them seem to stress that it takes hard work and sacrifice from the whole family (well, the parents at least) to get the athlete to that level. And, so I have credit the Wittstocks for that, and put them above the Middletons.

Plus, I imagine the Grimaldis are probably used to shacking up their long-distance relatives/in-laws by now. (The Robert Lacey biography I have on Grace mentioned it was a habit of hers to let her relatives come and stay, in times of need or not.)
