But she must come to her senses and realize that Albert will never change his spots.
If she's not in it for a serious relationship & does her own thing as well, I think there is no problem & who knows when or if the relationship is off & on.
Is she is suppose to be his official companion & he takes her to official functions then he should be a little more discreet showing up in tabloids w/ other women (we don't really know?) I would think it humiliating for her if the relationship is meant to be serious.

It's just that in some of his other relationships the women try to hang on deluding themselves of what the relationship really is? I think some people are wondering once again if that's the case? Maybe he is just a fun time for her right now & she is smart enough to know what the relationship is or isn't.

Quote:
She isn't my idea of a fairy princess (Diana in the middle 1980's, and the Crown Princess of Belgium), hopefully she will mature more as she ages.
But I had to come to my fellow South African's rescue as some of the posters were a bit nasty. Come on people at least say she is more pretty than Camilla.
Although, I think she doesn't appear very sophisicated or polished I do think it is unkind to comment on how pretty she is or isn't or her clothes, hair, etc... & besides I think he should help her out w/ formal gowns if he expects her to attend many formal functions as well as airfare? I'm sure he does.

But it's mostly her behavior that many of us think is unattractive & she should be PA's equal & I can't tell you who that reflects worse on - Prince Albert or Charlene? This kind of age difference is kind of nauseating to many women? It doesn't say much for the man & it makes the woman look naive or ambitious in a bad way.

I'm sure she is a nice enough girl & although I think her family should know to protect their privacy. I feel a little sorry for the family being attacked she may not want it either & well you can't pick you relatives. They probably are nice people & we all might have a relation who we couldn't keep quite I'm sure he is just a little excited & naive.

Glad to have you on the board, maybe you can keep us up on her swimming progress, & it's nice to have your perspective.

Welcome aboard Johan..

It is hard to say which way Charlene is going these days. She sure is not putting many efforts in her swimming career. As far as the romance goes, nobody really has any factual information on the relationship either.. The only information available is the tabloid/media and they are fishing without any bait.. To add fuel to the fire her father’s latest comments are not helping matters look any better; he is also in the dark on his daughter’s relationship.. I do not think he has ever met Prince Albert and his daughter has been associated with the prince for almost a year..

This entire episode of Prince Albert and Charlene has turned into a forest fire with Albert so imbedded he can not feel the flames.. :turned:

I sincerely hope whatever fares out for Prince Albert and Charlene, will be handled in a respectable manner. Prince Albert does not need anymore scandals..

Does anyone think CW would have been able to be around the way she appeared in Turin and at the Monaco Grand Prix and the Red Cross Ball and such with Albert if Ranier were still around?

Would we know about her this way do you think?

I think not, since Rainier had a way of silencing the press, and he would have banished her thereafter.

I think that is why we didn't see her after the 1st date & interview, plus the age difference - I think he would think PA might need someone more mature?

Most certainly not at events in MOnaco or any offical events with other family members participating. BUt you surely would have seen Maledive like pictures. More of those probably.

Do we really know if Charlene is still with Albert? The only source of info is Bunte andits article about vacations in Florida and the Bahamas. We even don't know any other mags telling about those vacations, so we even don't know if Albert ever went there. And Bunte is a notorious rag...
Wasn't it Bunte that started rumour about Charlene meeting Mr. Barsi, buying of engagement ring, converting to catholic religion, queen Elizabeth II agreement to this or something. All this turned out to be rubbish story.

What if she doesn't appear because it's just over.

Just wait for the pics from Bali... There was also this Italian magazine about the reception and before the Bunte article appeared, someone on another board sad that she was in fact at PGA and afterwards in Florida and the Bahamas. There were also the names of the friends whose wedding they attended.

Thank you Countess Lissa, What do people really think of her in SA? Some of us are not so sure about her sincerity. I'd love to hear what people there really think. Thanks>

Well, some people are excited by the idea that a woman from South Africa could be the next Princess of Monaco. but on the whole it doesnt seem to be a great interest to the average person. there isnt much reported about european royalty, except for the few articles about Charlene Wittstock. The article in the magazine took some of the info from the German magazine Bunte. it just says that they phone each other regularly according to her coach,. nothing really new!

Princess takes the plunge
Author: By Marie Opperman | date: 21 December 2006
Lovely Charlene Wittstock, tipped to be the next princess of Monaco, is back in SA – and making a splash

this is the link again www.you.co.za (thank you Countess Lissa!)

and that is the headline for the article (I cannot get access to it or the pictures). if anyone knows how, that would be nice, imo.


So, maybe CW really does want to swim for the Olympic team next year and she's not in MC afterall (at least for now)...

Would she be still able to qualify?

I think you have to be subscriber to the magazine to access the article -
but it also just says that she is training in Richards Bay as it is quieter and she isn't hassled by the paparazzi.

(Although I have always thought that the paparazzi are able to get anywhere if they really want to)

Yes, but they'd soon tire of taking photos of her swimmimg up and down a pool day after day, and how many such pics would the trash mags want to buy?

I feel Charlene is not with Albert anymore. It also looks tabloids feel the same. We have not heard about Charlene for a while. The only stories that appear about her in various magazines look like something created by her own PR. These stories appear recently only in SA media, BTW.

I don't think a lot unless she was topless.

Maybe they aren't together and maybe she's trying to save face by being photographed in a pool. It's interesting that she had a "shoulder injury" while she was Prince Albert's public girlfriend. IMO, she was just competing in the competition for the crown and not focussing on swimming.
