She is more famous for being PA's companion than being a succesful swimmer on their own. I didn't know her name before I saw her at Albert's side in 2006. (I also know the names some South African swimmers thanksful for her sport results: Penelope Heynes ,Natalie De Toit, Suzaan van Biljon)

In my opinion being a movie star means a long lasting, hard, succesful work. It is not enough to shoot one or two blockbuster films. It is also important who we consider movie stars. I really don't think that Paris Hilton is a movie star because she makes movies. I think of her as a celebrity.

What exactly does Charlene do? Besides being Alberts companion.

I like Charlene but it is obvious that she doesn't have the need to be useful.Since she was an excellent athlete and Olympian and she has sooo much spare time she could devote few hours per day/week to coach young children.That would make her very popular and productive.

I don't know why but somehow she looks so tired these days (especially eye area)?
She used to have such a beautiful fresh smile. (2006)

Running around with Albert in the spotlight all the time, can be pretty tiring. The link to the pic isn't working.

I guess you mean in the way of a job?
That is a mentality which is entirely American- to be a working class heroine and a perspiring one at that flipping hamburgers or working in the donut store at the very least.Why is that you do not ask what Caro does or what Steph does?Why did they not become doctors or lawyers or professors or something? According to Caro she was not a careerist and maybe CW is the same.

Charlene is criticized enough now - never mind interfering with a volunteering like you mention. I totally agree with what you say but I think there would be a backlash.

I think that CW has been slimming down although I have not seen signs of fatigue and her smile at the Grand Prix gala was beautiful.Accompanying Prince Albert in the spotlight you say must be tiring... but then you also say that is her only job so what is the implication respectfully if any?

Agreed. But Jaya, doesn't Princess Stephanie run a business in Monaco?

"The mentality of which is entirely American"???? Are you serious? What in the world are you talking about? When did I ever say she has to be a working class, sweat by the brow heroine? Caroline and Stephanie's job is to represent Monaco first and foremost. Whatever they do after that, whether it be a charity, doctor, lawyer, is entirely up to them. Charlene is not a royal. She had to have been doing something before she met Albert. That is what I was asking. Please do not bash what you "think" is American. Ask an American first, then we'll give you the answers.

I never said Charlene being with Albert is her only job. I've been asking about her job description. Somebody posted that she looks tired. I agree. I could see the fatigue on her face, even if you can't. Being in the spot light is tiring. Trust me, I know. Yes ones smile can be beautiful, but that doesn't mean they're not tired!

How do you know that? I think you're being VERY unfair to her? PA loves her, get over it

Well actually, they're kind of right. Charlene doesn't swim anymore, except for recreation and she attends parties with and without Albert, promotes Armani and the FIFA World Cup. I'd hardly consider that a job. Albert may love her but that still doesn't discredit the fact that she doesn't do a lot now that she's Albert's girlfriend.

This is a current events thread and not a second thread to discuss
Charlene Wittstock, her role and relationship. To end this simultaneous
discussion some posts have been deleted!

Thanks for your understanding!

Has anyone noticed that Charlene is attending more and more events by herself?

I don't know that it is an improvement as much as it was an observation. As to why she is out and about more on her own, I have no idea, but it does strike me as odd since it seems that it happened all of a sudden as opposed to gradually. Something has changed that's for sure.

I'm not trying to criticise Charlene (although I suspect there will be some here who will jump) but I agree with Hibou. Something about her body language has changed as well. I have no idea what the significance of those two observations are but I think the observations are correct.

What is that 'something'? Can you explain?

As a new project Charlene now is ambassadress of the "Mandela Day
Black Moon Benefit Gala", you maybe remember last week's pic of her
and Albert at the event (see their current events thread). According
to German Bunte it was Charlene who gave a short opening speech.

She annouced that she would also attend the other two benefit events
organized together by Lancia and Mandela day, one on July 18th in
Madrid (a concert to celebrate Nelson Mandela’s birthday) and one
during the Venice Film Festival.
I think that could also be seen as a kind of change, as turns a bit more
to charity than fashion - as far as it concerns her solo events/involvement.
But well, we'll see..

Nope, it's just an observation. But if you have any thoughts as to the new change in her going to events without Albert, I'd love to hear them because I can't explain it. I'm just giving my observations. May be some other posters may have some thoughts on this and can shed some light.
