there is an article about the ballet in todays paper. No pics of Albert or Charlene( same with Charlene at the jumping, she is not mentioned as having attended) with Marika and the students although I know they exist. Censure by omission? Charlene is not mentioned in the Monaco section. They do mention two wood horses, which I hope they mean the little ones and not the requisite Though the producer of either is the same .

The picture whizzes, anyone of you found those pics from Saturday evening? Well, in any case we know that Charlene changed her outfit at least once during the evening. But I'd love to hear what you guys say about Marika compared with Charlene.

Thank you Iceflower, Great find! Albert has his estate outside of Paris, so it's possible they were there. I'm just glad to see she's not in a halter top!

hi Paca ,
Caro will not be there and neither will Steph JMO ever on this.If ever Pa marries his princess must defer to caro matriarch even in the slightest manner.

The thread is now reopened to discuss the Current Events of Charlene Wittstock, but please note the following:

1) This purpose of this thread is to discuss the events of only Charlene, not Albert who has his own thread.

2) The Monaco forum has a new thread
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/f13/prince-albert-monaco-charlene-wittstock-current-events-part-1-a-13185.html where members can discuss events attended by BOTH Albert and Charlene.

3) The forum has another new thread
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/f13/albert-charlenes-relationship-13220.html whose topic is the relationship between Albert and Charlene; posts about the relationship, as long as they abide by the forum rules, belong there.

4) Posts that speculate on the relationship that exists between Charlene and Caroline/Stephanie have been deleted and will be deleted in the future.

5) Several posts have been moved to the http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...-11841-18.html as they are opinions of Charlene and are off topic for a current events thread.

If anyone has any questions, please contact any of the Monaco moderators.

Thank you.

Zonk, Lady Jennifer and tbhrc

She doesn't. Or at least she hasn't done so for some time. The last time was just before she came to Monaco to "train". As has been said several times the media needs a label for her so they refer to her as former swimmer, model, olympic swimmer etc. But as things are that's all there is to it: a label. Unfortunetely media has sunk to such a level that you don't actually need to do much in order to earn one of their labels. Nowadays princesses flock to some fashion designers parties, whereas in the olden days they considered them their tailors and as such part of the servants. I should doubt that then royals would have been seen dining at the same table with tailors or chefs, but then again times have changed and everything and everyone is equalized which results in noone being special anymore. Everyone is straight away a star, a topmodel, a supermodel, a star designer, a star figaro etcetc. I wonder if there are still normal people who don't have a label in this world around. I'm starting to think that I belong to a breed soon to be exstinct.

She said that she was coming in Europe... for training... she didn't speak about Monaco... but ....
I agree with you paca, medias want a label because they can't write who she is.
she sais she was coming in Europe because it's summer here ( it seems thatsummer is good for swimming)... I have to say that in France we have bad weather since 1rst june... but when you are partying or attending almost official events bad weather is not a problem.

Actually, I think there was an article that said CW did swim in a little meet somewhere a couple of months ago and she placed in the competition, but she did not win anything, as the media like to play up . I'll have to look for it. It was the one where she said she had been training for 3 months (out of all the time she has been in MC and talking about being an olympic athelete and training to go to Beijing - yeah sure).

but hey, she may just do it yet.




She came in 3rd place according to the article.

CW is also said to have regained her place in women's 50m backstroke in that meet just few months ago. I am not trying to bash her, but i just don't think she is considered someone to watch in swimming world (only PA watchers would be interested in her), in my opinion.

Apparently, the meet from April was not attended by many of the top international-class (read: not many olympic caliber) swimmers, but that probably does not mean much, so maybe CW was probably hoping to get some kind of ranking there, since my guess is that she has not been training hard and the top caliber swimmers were not there (I would not know her strategy, but that's my opinion). She did get her name on the 2007-2008 SA National swim team the following month, but she is not on the SA olympic team

I hope CW does make it to the SA Olympic team, since she has said for a long time that she wants to compete for a medal. I think if she works hard and has some big luck she can do it.

I believe sometime last spring someone posted that she has until April 2008 to qualify for the SA Olympic team. The problem is that she doesn't seem to be competing anywhere since her swim competition last spring in SA. She then moved to Monaco and no one has reported her competing since. In the meantime her SA athletes are preparing for the African Games and for an Olympic qualifier in Japan in August. So we will have to see if she show up at any of these competitions.

mh.

I found this news on jetstreaker.com.
It's an old news but Is very intresting.... expecially for comments below...

What do you think about it?


"...Had there been any doubt that South African swimmer and prospective princess Charlene Wittstock and Prince Albert of Monaco are a couple, we can gleefully dash the hopes of thousands of hopeful women around the world who have been wishing to get their own grubby manicured paws on the bachelour prince.
The prince and Charlene looked very lovey-dovey at a charity event in Monaco over the weekend.
The 49-year old prince and 29-year old Charlene were the guests of honour at the bash organised by Albert’s sister, Princess Stephanie, for her charity Fight Aids Monaco.
By the way, don’t even think of criticising Charlene for supporting an Aids charity in Monaco as opposed to right here at home, where we have one of the highest infection rates in the world. As future Princess of Monaco, she HAS to care about Aids in that hedonistic playground to the rich and famous!"

Complete news + comments.
Charlene Wittstock helps to fight aids… in Monaco - Jetstreaker

After all, if you want to get funds, it's better to ask to the rich people no ?

On a different note, I recently watched the 1983 movie Grace Kelly aka The Grace Kelly Story. It starred model/actress Cheryl Ladd. It was amazing how much Cheryl's portrayal of Grace reminded me of Charlene. In many instances both Cheryl's and Charlene's mannerisms and facial features were identical, and in an unexpected way, seeing Cheryl's portrayal of Grace made me feel empathy for what Charlene must be going through.
