Charlene Wittstock Current Events 5 : August 2006

Welcome to part 5 of the thread to discuss the current events of Charlene Wittstock, Prince Albert's official companion.

Please take a look at the following TRF Posting Rules & Guidelines before you start posting in this thread:

Quote:
- Derogatory or offensive remarks about royal persons, their family, friends or associates, or other public figures are strictly prohibited. While there is no requirement that you should like all royal persons or public persons discussed at TRF, there is no need to attack them or call them names. There are ways to express your dislike or criticism of royals other than resorting to calling them names. It is childish behaviour that is not tolerated here.

Quote:
- Please share only your opinions about a royal person or situation. We prefer that you don’t make posts in the name of your family members, friends, acquaintances or on behalf of your entire community, city or country. For example, posts such as “My mom agrees with me that…” or “Everybody in my town is opposed to this relationship.” While public opinion is sometimes relevant, there is no way to verify second- or third-hand remarks. There is also no way to verify claims that a poster is or knows a member of a royal or noble family; claims to this effect will be deleted from the forum.

Quote:
- Reference to and continuations of discussions from other message boards or forums are absolutely not permitted and will automatically be removed without discussion by the TRF Moderating Team.

Quote:
- Profanity and coarse language is strictly prohibited. Discussions here will never be of a nature in which swearing or offensive language is necessary to fully express oneself.
Quote:
- No unsubstantiated information is permitted. This is not the place for gossip; we want to share and discuss actual news and information about royalty. All information submitted here (stories, articles, etc.) must be linked back to a credible source (newspaper, magazine, online magazine, book, photo agency, etc...). Gossip is hearsay and these forums are dedicated to providing credible information to its members. Therefore, we ask our members to have reliable sources for any information that they may provide.


You can find the old thread here.

Happy Posting!

Veroka, the picture on the boat was taken last September and the lady was Annabella Bond. The gray haired guy was the doctor fellow from the North Pole Trek (I can't remember his name right now). If I remember right it was a planning meeting for the trek.

I like their style, on a boat in the balmy med. sea planning on trekking to the Pole.

To answer your questions-according the monitor when she checked in, her destination was the Paris airport. Nice doesn't have many direct flights anywhere and Paris goes everywhere. And they were taken on 5 August, Saturday by the date on the agency uploads.

As to whether she ends up back in South Africa, in the United States for the Jazz Festival or stays in Paris at Albert's apartment is up for quite some speculation. She did however, wear the same outfit traveling as she did wandering around Monaco the afternoon before the ball. Guess she didn't pack much...

Dressed without style or class.... two baggages of different color, and what is this???? An Ice bag?????? She will take a sightseeing tour in Paris?

Maybe she is the right one... but I hope that Pr Team will do something in order to improve her style....

She looks so tired, or maybe she is sad, She don't wont to leave her love..

And what about Albert??? Is he happy or sad???? No photos of Him on the airport???

I actually had to double check her clothes to make sure she repeated the same clothes cause I had assumed the photos were taken the same day. Infact I was getting ready to challenge you but then I realised the guy with her is wearing a different shirt. I wonder what she had in the big suitcase then. I would have thought clothes. I mean I am not saying its wrong to repeat clothes two days in a row but when you are dating the prince I think it is. Maybe its time the prince started shopping.

I'm not seeing what's so wrong with her outfit (except maybe the legs turned up). She looks like any normal woman to me going to the airport. Just my opinion.

Consider this as a reason to be sad. The Ball came and went with an insider source saying an engagement would be announced at the Ball but none was. She was not seated next to Albert but across from him. She was escorted to the airport by the personal trainer.

This is not the style of a princess.
This girl will take the place of Grace Kelly...

With all due respect...she MAY take the role of Grace Kelly. That's not a definite thing until an engagement is announced. Until then, she is a women dating a prince traveling in comfort. And in regards to being escorted to the airport by a personal trainer...who was supposed to escort her....Albert? Then people would be upset and saying that he is not taking his duties serioiusly. These of course, just my personal opinions.

To me that is no reason to be sad.

- An insider said there would be an announcement
Well I really think Albert and Charlene know when it's time to make such things. And the Red Cross Ball is not the right place for it. BTW there were many 'insider' saying there would be an engagement since the Olympics, so I wouldn't trust those kind of informations.

- She was not seated next to him
She sat right across from him, if you consider the protocol, that was absolutly right. Further there are many pics showing them holding hands and flirting with each other.

- She was escorted by the personal trainer
What's wrong with that? No one knows where Albert was. Noone knows where she was going. This personal trainer was with her on several paparazzi pics, and that is not a reason to be sad.


I also think she was just tired, and her outfit was absolutly okay. It was casual and chic, and that is my opinion.

I think it's really unfair to compare her to Princess Grace. Every women on this earth would pale in comparison to her.

Yes, but

Yes, that it's true. But can you compare Charlene to others european modern princesses, like Mary or Letizia?

In my opinion not as long as she is not married to Albert. And so far she is his official companion.....

Oh please, aren't there more important things in this world then Charlen wittstock traveling with two unmatching suitcases? I am surely not a fan of hers, but really that is the least of her problems. If she is going to be a rpincess of Monaco, I expect a lot more of her then owning matching luggage and clothes that make her look good. IMO she could be more beautiful then Grace, have all the wonderful clothes in the world and always smile at the right time when a camera is pointed her way so you guys can say what a wonderful princess. To me she still would't do anything. I want to see someone who loves Albert for the man he is, not his title, someone who shares his ideals and will help him to realize them, someone who will help his humantarian projects, someone who will be there for him and support him when times are rough and not someone who will create additional stress by giving unsuitable interviews and using his postion to promote her own image. And frankly to me Charlene has nothing of what I expect of a wife for Albert. It looks at present as if he is of a different opinion and I might have to get used to seeing her around here (though I still have hope). BUt her unmatching suitcases is really not sth that should and would prevent her from becoming a princess.
