Becuase, if she didn't, someone would find fault with that. Just as all the nitpickers find fault with her shoulders , her dress color, her French or what not. The truth is she is doing what she is being asked to do, her shoulders are big, because she is an Olympic swimmer, look at all swimmers shoulders and what bothers most is that she is stunning, carries herself well and is engaged to a prince.

I guess she is attending because they asked her. On her own, she is a person on her way to becoming a celebrity princess. She might not be a person of interest in Argentina, but the world is larger than Argentina.

it is very well she is raising founds for special olympics, and those who denyng this are angry to see that she is not the person they critic so much along the pages here.All the royals make publicity for their country but in the same time they collect founds for charity, and Charlene was in South Africa to raising founds for this big association and Palace of Monaco and Prince Albert are agreed with this. And yesterday, to day She made this job very well and if it makes publicity for Monaco, nobody in Monaco will be again and there will be an article about this trip on Nice Matin and yesterday there was a report on Charlene raising founds for special olympics on Monaco info

Other posters said there was no interest at all in their countries, that it was not on the news, USA included. I added some info in that way. No interest here either, get it now?

Yes, all of a sudden she cares for charity, sure!

As the fiancee of the prince, she has some weight to her presence. It doesn't hurt that she is beautiful and that her country is proud of her.

Besides, why wait after the wedding to lend your name and energies to charity? And why view her involvement here simply as means to advertise or publicize their wedding?

Why be jaded about this person? Isn't it possible that she is a decent and caring human being after all?

South African-born Charlene Wittstock looks on before the Midmar Mile charity event held at the Midmar dam near the town of Howick, South Africa, Saturday, Feb. 12, 2011. The future princess of Monaco is a former Olympic swimmer, but she says a weekend charity swim she will be doing in South Africa, her homeland, will be a challenge.

Good to see all the pics from Pietermaritzburg.

I doubt whether CW is actually obliged to fulfil engagements before her marriage. Therefore it's fine that she is occupying herself with her field of expertise which is swimming.

It is refreshing to see Charlene looking at ease in each of these engagements. Hopefully in time, she will project a similar impression on occasions when she is outside her comfort zone

An article in Nice-Matin (Friday 11th) with CW looking relaxed after a job well done....
Nice frock and pose, and she pointed out to journalists that she was there not for competitive swimming, but for charitable purposes.

She was due to attend a rugby match with the Sharks of Durban.

How truly admirable, she has the qualities of a good princess

On Thuesday evening, there was a report on Monaco en ligne (news of monaco on a monegash channel tvwe saw her trianing, she said she had not enough time with her duties but she trained one hour and halb three or four times by week and it was not enough to compate but she will be in a team which will compete for care.
After this travel in South Africa, we see that she is abble to do princess job without nobody, and she has an another personality,She said in the interview of friday before breakfast, with the special olympics, it was the beginning of the planning she will do for the underprivileged people.
On the Monaco in linie, the report said there will be an other report on the travel of Miss Charlene wittstock
