I wish Charlene would be so secure in Monaco like she is in SA. The events last days were good and helped to have a better image of her.
So I really hope the next years she will grow into her role as a Princess.

I agree with you but Charlene really has a long way to go.

The one who participated as well and can for example be seen in the zimbio gallery?
If so, that's Terence Parkin, a swimmer from South Africa.



And here's another article with pics:

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.

After looking at this photo, I went back to view previous picture posts. How did I overlook this blue outfit and necklace. Love it, love it, love it. She's going to bring back macrame!!!

The second photo kind of shows that perhaps she has NOT had cosmetic surgery on her face. She's a knockout!

The Svenskdam picture where CW wears the nice blue dress is perhaps her best so far, IMO.

Sadly, I'm still worried for her because of her thin figure. Is she being persuaded to lose weight for the wedding?

All athletes are thin. They burn up 100's of calories working out every day and have very little body fat. It's all muscle. She said she practiced 1 1l/2 hrs every day to get ready for this event. And if you think Charlene has big shoulders you should see a pitcture of the 41 year old US swimmer, Dara Torres. Her arms and shoulders are huge. She is an otherwise very pretty woman. It's the price you pay for being an Olympian.

I think the training makes her losing weights but happily, she is not like Kate who lost a lot of weights

There is a video on the Charlene's race on the site" Glanzundgloria schweitzer tv"
and for those who are in Europa there is a report on her travel in South Africa on the news on the site "Monaco en ligne", it runs at each hour until 19h in the evening where there are others subjects

Thanks to Melina for the brilliant Dailymotion clips - I didn't know that Emanuele Filiberto can "sing" as well as playing the fool..... :-))

The feeding frenzy of the media has well and truly begun for the two happy couples ... let's hope they will still be happy after all the circus has died down.

Anyone knows anything about the interview Charlene had to give to Jenny Crwys-Williams, talk radio host of a South African radio?.
Jenny tweeted that Charlene never showed up, and that she had to wait 2 hours for her and nobody came.
Tweets on Charlene

I know it's elegant to appear 5-10 minutes late, but never appear? Mmm?

Why is Prince Albert not following her, because she has stated many time sharing his events all the time but why it was not happening vice versa in South Africa.

he had this last week end two bigs events one at Bale the environnement and food and in Monaco on february the 13th and 14th a meeting on two days about the Mediterrannée with many personalities, ministers of many countrys around the Mediterrannée.The planning was fixed more one year ago and he could not change the date. Charlene was in South Africa from February 4th and Prince Albert said that this year he had much work with weedding preparation and the duties.
It is a good thingh that Charlene could proove that she is abble to do caritatives events alone and she was very smiling when she gave awards saturday and sunday evening, I think it was a succeed for her
I learned this week that she will be with Prince Albert at the official trip in Ireland for the 4 april to 6 april
