It's a great article. She sounds nice and sincere. What a pity that the picture in the swimming suit had to spoil it. She looks really good in swimwear, of course, but it's simply not appropriate so shortly before the wedding. She's going to be a very beautiful bride –– I can't wait for the big day! I hope we get some good coverage from the international networks here in Thailand...

Beau monde (French) is the same as Bel Mondo (or Belmondo, the actor) in Italian.

There's also "mondain" (mondaine F.)

Lol, this is so odd, right on the heels of the funny mention of Letizia's? pant suits over in the Fashion Forum, specifically in the Charlene Wittstock thread.

Now Charlene wears the pants, but not the suit. Seriously though she looks good in them because she has the body, stature, physique and confidence to carry it out, as shown here.

Good choice of clothing.

She looks much more happy and relax here, Good!
this is the type of event that seems to fit her personality, a great addition to the Special Olympics team

Yes, she seems happy in her "milieu" amongst sportsmen and -women, but not having to compete, having a defined rôle, and yet being able to share that Olympic interest.

Lucky girl !

I saw her on tv some minutes ago but i thought she was just a woman that looked like her, because i had no idea she would attend the Special Olympics. She is really chic and beautiful! I like her smile.

totally agree with you.

see, that's what i'm talking about. she looked natural, relax and very comfortable... i like the top, she really knows was good for her body, and the one'shoulder cut is really good for her.

i don't like her, but that doesn't mean that i can't appreciate her fashion good taste. here we had the real charlene. her real personality came out. (..). she deserves a 10.

I can't seem to take to her either, MissMaryanne, but she tries.
Of course it's easy to dress well, when one is married to a billionaire... :-)

I saw her in TV broadcasting of the opening ceremony! First she was sat with the officials, and when the athlete's parade started she entered together with the Monaco team. She was very nice very classy.

Thanks, fandesacs2003, for the delicious tidbit. Hopefully someone will post a youtube link (hint, hint).

I know that America's most decorated figure skater, Michelle Kwan, is there, as well as Charlene; both Special Olympic Ambassadors.

I'm very proud of Charlene for taking the weekend before her wedding to attend the opening. What a gal!

These dates would have been in her diary for many months.

We've had a whole year since the engagement.

Please note that posts regarding the status of Albert and Charlene's up and coming wedding, as it relates the L'Express artcle have been deleted, as the Palace has denied the article.

Any and all additional posts will be deleted as well.

I do agree with KintiAntlanta! I like seeing her doing the things she loves and did in her past. The Olympics is something that she knows very very well and i think she is the perfect person to be an embassador for this ocassion. At least she doesn't pretend to be someone she is not..like some other royal people In my eyes i see an honest and spontaneous (using the good meaning of this word) woman, who's missing from Monaco. There're few such women in the whole royal circle.

The Olympics in general, and the Special Olympics in particular, are the perfect job for Charlene: she won't have to worry about French (or any other language).

She can be in her "milieu" and can shine there.
