Hello everyone...missed you all but was concentrating on items at work. I've been reading everyone's comments and just thought I'd add my own and a few questions.

1. Is CW still in MC? I couldn't tell if the most recent Cartier photos were taken after this past weekend's activities.

2. She still is not around at family events so while they may be "exclusive" whatever that means to them, I don't think the relationship has wandered too far down the matrimonial path.

3. If the PR office at the palace is now monitoring whatever comes out in the press, to me that is a sign that they are none too pleased with Dad & Grandma's interviews with the press.

4. RE: CW's style: to each her own. She may not have the $$$ to have such a wide array of things to choose from and also she may not be aware that she should be slightly more dressed up than the average spectator or what she would normally do in SA.

5. To me, the dress she was wearing was far too formal for a shopping expedition. I got the impression she was doing some sort of ad for Cartier or as paca suggested, taking a short cut to a restaurant and did some window shopping or escaping from the camera's lens. I like the dress CW is wearing in the Cartier photos. In fact I do like the halter style she has been choosing lately. However, I learned that reading a "what not to wear" book that if you have broad shoulders such styles emphasize that. She might be better off in a v-neck, plain top and put the details lower such as a skirt or funky shoes to offset the shoulders and show off her amazing legs.

6. I sincerely doubt that they will announce an engagement on August 11th as PA will be in Newport, RI. If there is an announcement, it will probably be done in SA or MC (Grace & Rainier announced in Philadelphia). Besides that weekend Albert is in Newport for an exhibit honoring his mother, I don't think it would be wise to upstage her memory. As for the entourage of 300, I'm sure it contains a few Grimaldis as well as various contingents from the Kelly clan.

Just my thoughts, hope all is well with everyone.

Most women love to shop if only to browse, so why not go to all of the upscale venues. PA probably requested as a favor for someone on his staff to make arrangements for CW and she ended up in Cartier’s as one of the points of interest. I do not think he would send her there to purchase an engagement ring or a tiara. The pictures did not show her buying anything only talking. It appears she is enjoying her visit.

I am keeping an open mind so this is only my opinion. :)
Makes sense to me. Nicole Coste (and maybe a few others) did the same.

PA always sent someone to chauffer NC around the same way, take her just wherever she wanted to go in MC and escort her everywhere as Albert's guest. The escort basically kept her busy until PA arrived back to his apartments where they would have their 'visit' with each other.

IMO, same thing here, just now in pictures that are being shown rather than low key private.

Nicole also said sometimes the escort would take her right to PA's apartment in MC because he was busy and she would just wait there for him, and they would stay indoors, or go to a movie or to the restaurant there during her 'visit'. I would guess CW probably doing the same, but I do not know

Nothing different here with CW, imo. Same script, same leading man, same supporting players, different woman...:p

that's just all my opinion. obviously PA can do whatever he wants. at least CW seems to be enjoying herself

But when did everyone know about Nicole and maybe a few others?

It seems that to me, all the other relationships were kept quiet.

If Charlene is "The One" (and I hope not) why allow her to be presented like she has been? Some of those photos will haunt her, Albert and any children they have or ever.

P.S. Welcome back Pinky

I actually think that PA's feelings for Charlene have weakened slightly. I believe they still have a relationship --but something has changed.
He had the option of bringing her to romantic Spain for the Laureous awards--he didn't. He could have brought her to the charity soccer game--no.--even though Andrea and Pierre had girl friends in the stands..
He took her to the "Pre" grand Prix event-- most of the stands were empty...Not the actual event---
There is a picture of PA attending a fashion show yesterday(Grand Prix thread)--he didn't ask her to attend that (good thing-his eyes are popping out at a model)
When PA was with Annabelle at the Gala dinner his eyes were glowing--I don't see this with Charlene anymore.
Maybe I'm just wishful thinking , but Charlene isn't attending the big events any more for a reason...
She has gone way down from being introduced to Princess Anne of England ..
If she reappears this weekend-----I am wrong and things are on track..

I think men treat women at the level of respect that they command. If she's happy being his woman only behind closed doors, then he will oblige.

I want to point out something to everyone about this relationship. Albert was never in the position he is now and can take whomever he wants to the Palace since Rainier is no longer there to object. That is where he lives, his home. That is the Palace grounds and photo's of Albert have been taken there before and posted.

On the dress I don't care for that style on her. She needs to do something to not draw so much attention to her shoulders and give her some curves like a fuller or softer flowing skirt. The length is good.

I also want to say to those who criticize her lack of education Princess Diana was a drop out as well. Give her credit for her honesty in admitting it wasn't important to her. I haven't read her interviews. I hate to say this but I have a feeling no matter who the woman is that Albert dates of takes home as his wife someone will always find something wrong with her. Part of this has been caused by his lack of staying with a woman for any period of time in the public eyes and not making a choice. When Albert makes it no one will tell him no and he isn't going to give a darn what others think. Charlene has been criticized for her looks. Take a look at the other woman Albert generally dates as his girlfriends they are on the plain side and look at Nicole. He is more attracted to this sort possibly for several reasons. Its been said beautiful woman are shallow and in many cases stuck on themselves. He is looking for a woman whose beauty comes from within to satisfy his own inner needs.

They don't look happy on the Chi cover. Maybe the inside has happier photos.
Perhaps CW has seen the photos appeared on "GENTE" magazine, where Prince Albert was having fun with CBS anchor Alycia Lane at a party on a yacht in MC. They seemed to be very close, so to speak.

Tosca, if possible could you post a link to the Alycia Lane/PA pictures?
Also, check-out post # 103 in the Grand Prix thread. PA is mesmorized by Model Eva at the Amber Lounge. CW better watch-out!

Thanks Paca this one I read looks like the same things written about Alicia and a few others he has dated. For those who don't read German it does say unless there is an official engagment she won't be attending things like the Rose Ball. It explains her absence from those funcations. I do wish someone would talk to her about wearing sun dresses especially when he is in a suit.

It is funny though that other friends of the family are welcome to join them at these functions. (Andrea is 3rd in line and took his GF, so I don't think that this is the reason) IMO this is just the medias way to explain away the doubts that a lot of us have about the seriousness of the relationship. And they still claim that in MC people are looking forward to her becoming princess, which is very clearly not the case. More to the contrary I would say. If people would approve her, they would certainly be outspoken about it, inspite of their usual reserve. But what I see now is more like putting the head in the sand and hoping this will all blow over as it did before.

In this case the rule actually exists (or existed, at least when Rainier was alive) because none of the significant others of Caro and Steph could ever attend official functions unless they were engaged or officially a couple (living together, as Caro and Ernst since 1998)...Of course now that Albert is the boss he can easily change any habit or use quite easily, so he could bring Charlene wherever he choses.
Notice that when Tatiana attended a function, she didn't attend officially as a couple with Andrea, but was always included in a larger group of friends (at the Rose Ball they didn't even dance together).
I tend to agree though that Charlene doesn't seem to have a very different treatment from many others in the past.

Kisses

Interesting pics with Caro. She is joking with Ernst and Andrea etc., but with Caro she doesn't seem to be too comfortable. I'm still waiting for pics to show up in MC paper. Until they print it, she isn't different to any other he has taken and introduced to family. She still needs a brush though .

Can I say something quite bad? She seems to get along with the younger generation better, maybe because she is closer in age to them than to Albert, Caro and Ernst...Anyway, she surely seems well introduced in the family.

i definitely noticed that too. it's sad to say she is only six years older than Andrea, the same age difference between Rainier and Grace. so that explains her connection with them. though with ernst she seemed to be having a ball, but it's not hard because ernst is who he is.

Today she looks very pretty because she wears very nice and sexy dress for gala event but it is not for this event (car racing). It seems she is already to having sex with PA.
