But well, we'll see..
My thought is: sounds like Ms Wittstock is getting closer to being Princess of Monaco.
Looks like she is getting some charity experience. Good for her. This and the invite to the wedding sure shows me that Charlene is not wasting her time as Prince Albert's girlfriend.

Might be, or it could be she's cutting loose to make more of a name for herself other than being known simply as an ex-swimmer or girlfriend of a Prince.

True. I do hope she tries to make a name for herself before tagging along with Albert permanently. I would hate to think she's doing all of this to up her name in society. But the question is "Will Albert every marry her?". If he does, I hope she knows that she can never fill Prince Grace's shoes, but she could be herself. Sometimes I feel like she imitating her.

I don't hear the wedding bells. She could be Princess of Monaco if PA wanted it. I don't expect miracles. Maybe these charity projects give her some experience however I don't know where she can do a lot of favours for people. I think there are more influental South African politicans and famous people than CW who could do necessery steps for those goals that CW would like to fight for. Maybe her body language tells us that she is more confident. She can show those people who endure her now that she is a lot more than PA's currently girlfriend.According to CrownPrincess5 I also have the same question."Will Albert every marry her"?

I think Charlene is having the ride of her life and PA lets her have then so be it. In the eyes of his older royal peers WHOM HIS PARENTS HAS WON OVER FOR MONACO REPUTATION his status has probably went to zero. It must be that Grimaldi blood.. I always thought that Albert would follow his father and marry a suitable bride and have legal heirs long ago.
Even with the dress up and galas Charlene does not have that "it" factor going for her.
I bet it must speak wonders to other royals if Charlene had a occupation/ fortune of her own would she have stayed around like she has.

I recently read " INSIDE MONACO" a foriegner need a fortune( proof of account to the Monacos banks) to just rent a apartment there for a year.

Charlene may not have the "it" factor for you, but she seems to have it for PA.

You have to admit she has come a long way since meeting PA at the Turin Olympics, and she "scrubs up well" in my opinion.

this is true................ I did like that grey number she had on the other day. I just wish they lose that 1940's hairdo. She looks better in a up sweep or having hair down in a wave.

But all Charlene is his escort that it. Nothing else that nothing to be happy about. Even when she is smiling she dying inside.

Let's not use this thread to bash Charlene.

This is a Current Events thread, and unless someone really knows her, let's not assume to speak for her or know what she is thinking or feeling.

i dont think that albert should put her in situations suited for the role of a wife/ fiancee ..it becomes a sticky situation unless he wants her for the long term....what if they break up? ...there should be some level-headedness ....

I'm indifferent about CW. That said, I don't feel sorry for her. She's an adult capable of making her own decision. I think she's rather smart to use to her advantage the fact that PA is charmed with her regardless of how the relationship will turn out, i.e., marriage or no marriage. Just my two cents.

Rarotonga, I agree with your view of "the situation", though I can't say I'm indifferent to CW. She's a nice young woman when all is said and done, and as long as she is an asset to PA and Monaco, everyone will accept the status quo, I think.

Previous posters have perhaps invested more emotions in their assessment of CW.

But I can't understand how any of us could possibly know whether or not Charlene is "dying inside" and similar turns of phrase.

It seems like they have worked out something that works for him, for her, and for Monaco. There might come a time when it no longer works and things fade into something else, but for now it works. I imagine that there are a lot of dynamics in the field to work around/with, some political ones, and some personal and *interpersonal* (outside the couple) ones. They're playing chess, and we await their next move. For now, it looks like a long wait.

Will indeed be interesting if she goes to Sweden.

Dress is pretty, hairdo is weird, seems like 1940s or 1950s style. Is Charlene trying to look like Grace?

Charlene's figure type is quite different than that of Grace's and so are her features.No one except Grace reminds me of her... jmo.. especially not Charlene who has her own persona; physically and otherwise.
