Maybe she is feeling more fatigued and nauseous than she did last week. She didn't exactly look like she was enjoying herself at the Grand Prix. I don't think it's unreasonable that a woman in the early stages of what might be a high risk pregnancy may not feel like flying off to attend a formal dinner, even if it is nearby.

As another poster put it, her pregnancy should be her priority and whatever she decides about her schedule for the remainder of it should be the decision only of Charlene and her medical team.

Maybe she simply doesn't feel like it, and that is perfectly okay imo.

Later in the evening a diner at Het Loo Palace, a fantastic and dream-like location.

A day later, the Prince can continue his visit to Philips (a Dutch electronics multinational) and then both the Prince and Princess can fly back to Nice. When the baby is due in December, this means the Princess is only in the second month of her pregnancy...
We have no information on how her first trimester is coming along. For some women it means intermittent nausea and vomiting, often caused by food or just smells you did not even know would make you sick. Under some circumstances even a short trip in a car will make you sick to your stomach, much less air travel.

It is a pity. Charlène missed the re-union of the Heirs at the hunting lodge near Het Loo Palace (one month before the Investiture), she missed the three wonderfully festive days around the Investiture and now she misses again for what would probably have been her first very formal outing in her role as HSH The Princess of Monaco. I really wanted to see the monegasques together with the Dutch royal couple and Princess Beatrix, all in their finery and surrounded by the stunning 17th C palace.

Okay, there will undoubtedly be another opportunity.

I just dont get how anyone can criticise the decision for Charlene not to go to Netherlands.

Baby and mother's health first and foremost.

None of us know all the facts - try for a little understanding and kindness!

So, so true cepe! I think she should do whatever makes her comfortable. It was becoming downright painful to read some of the snide, cruel comments her childlessness was generating online and in the press, mostly from females, who one would expect to have more compassion for her situation.

I don't blame Charlene for wanting to do everything possible to bring this child safely into the world.

I suspect the official trip has probably been planned longer than Charlene has been pregnant. It may be that they announced the events as Charlene felt fine at the time but now feels more tired or sick. Remember how the Duchess of Cambridge had to go to hospital as she was so ill for a short amount of timer during her pregnancy- Charlene might no longer feel well enough to go. That might even be why they announced her pregnancy so as to explain why she wasn't going to The Netherlands after saying she would, they've had their fair share of rumors already and know how it would look to the media if she simpy didn't turn up.

Just a reminder, the moderators do not feel comfortable with discussions of other forums here at TRF. We would not like it if they discussed us in a negative light, so let's give them the same courtesy.

And while we are still a few days from the visit, let me remind you that speculation is against forum rules. All posts about possible past miscarriages have been removed, as they are nothing but posters' own speculations. All we know is that Princess Charlene will not be making the trip after all. Further speculative references will be removed at moderator discretion.

maybe charlene is not feeling well at these early stages of pregnancy and would prefer to stay home. who can blame her! as much as i'd like to see these two lovely ladies together, we need to respect charlene's decision. who knows, maybe she gives us a surprise and actually comes! if not, we can always hope for an introductory visit of the dutch king and queen to monaco in the not so distant future...

That is a nice princely plane. I see one of the royal extended Audi limousines picked the Prince up, his standard flying. I think the Prince was welcomed by his Ambassador and by the King's Grandmaster.

The dinner tonight is with tiaras.
Queen Máxima is wearing a stunning green dress with the emerald tiara.
I think Princess Beatrix is wearing the small sapphire tiara, but I'm not sure.
