I judge her because she has a child and is a mother. She's no longer just about herself, she's supposed to be keeping her life tidy so her kid has a chance at a stable loving home life with a mother's undivided attention.

As for family dynamics, I wonder if she's having issues with the fact that both her brothers are married, starting families of their own, and she's no longer the star of the Casiraghi Trio and that there isn't a Casirgahi Trio anymore. She has sisters-in-law and she's seeing them have children of their own and she's kind of on her own.

The last time the public saw Charlotte and Gad together was Pierre's wedding followed shortly by the Capri vacation with the extended Elmaleh family, where the paparazzi pics show Charlotte mostly interacting with the female Elmaleh relatives instead of Gad.

I think this may be similar to when couples split shortly after Thanksgiving or Christmas. Family members and/or friends might be shocked because they just saw them together, but really the couple was on the outs for awhile. They just didn't want to disrupt family festivities with bad news.

Well my opinion is, FWIW, is that Charlotte may well be one of those young women who mistakenly believes that she can change "the man", once things are accomplished (i.e., a child). And like many of those young women she if has found out that "changing" is not in the cards and is left with how things really are. She is very beautiful and some say intelligent, but she is NOT IMO very mature.

Well, to be honest there was never a "Casiraghi Trio" except on Royal message boards. The siblings always had a loosely connected network of friends and lovers from the world of high society in which they exist, but they were rarely together as a unit except at ceremonial events in the Principality. Andrea and Tatiana were off on their own and so were Pierre and Beatrice for years. Charlotte was with Felix for a time, then Dellal for about four years, and lately with Gad. They(the Casi's) didn't really hang out together.

I do agree with you that seeing her brothers settled and married might have prompted Charlotte to start rearranging her own life and priorities. She will have her landmark big 3-0 next summer. Perhaps she wants to build a more committed family of her own with a husband and more children?

Time will tell.

ETA: I agree with miss whirley that Gad/Charlotte have been on life support for awhile. Many people online were talking about Charlotte's thin, haggard appearances over the summer and especially at Pierre's wedding. Something was "off". Hopefully we will be seeing the old radiant Charlotte again.

I think she was a little too used to having her own way, thought it would continue with Gad, but things haven't worked out in that way for her so now she's not sure how she's supposed to handle it. She's now setting a bad pattern for herself, a pattern I hope she breaks.

it is an annoyance when she kind of puts on these airs and basically acts like she's better, but ends up doing stuff like this and is now moving on way too quick to another man, this time an Italian aristocrat. I wonder how long that will last, to be honest.

Gad is one of our best Actors and one of the best paid .
I am waiting a lot about of his reaction , because he is one of my favorite Actors and Charlotte is to me an imature rich little girl and I hope she has nice nannies.

They will not have to deal with being passed about and shared between the households of two split up parents, especially as toddlers. Even under the best circumstances that is a stressful situation for young children.

Gad publically proclaimed during the pregnancy that marriage was not the plan. His former partner Anne Brochet-with whom he also shares a son- has hinted that he is unstable emotionally(She wrote a novel that is said to be based on her life and their relationship).
The most likely explanation for Charlotte choosing to have a baby with this man when she did, seems to have been her thinking, even with all this staring her right in the face, that she could change Gad and who he was (as Princess of Durham also pointed out). Whether he encouraged her unconsciously in entertaining this prospect, who knows? It could have all been in her head from the beginning.

If that is in fact the case, the situation seems in some ways reminiscent of Princess Caroline's failed marriage to Philippe Junot.

We cannot know exactly what happened in that couple ! It would be better to stop judging when we cannot have any idea of what happened.

I'm not surprised that Charlotte and Gad didn't work, they never looked compatible to me. Having a kid was probably not a good idea, but accidents have been known to happen and it seems Charlotte is not immune. It would be complicated for an ordinary couple, but that is not the case here. Yes, she moved on quickly, but she's a very attractive woman so I'm sure lots would love the opportunity to snatch her up and one did. She can do as she sees fit, after all, it's her life.

Exactly. It's a very private matter between two partners of an intimate relationship, we know practically nothing about. So it's better and fairer not to speculate and judge too much.

Very popular comedian in France but he also sells out on tour in London and the States. He's quite funny -.observational comedy. If you speak French have a look for some his stuff on YouTube. He may do stuff in English now, as well.

In the past few years he's done a few films in English as well as French - he's a good character actor.

But you're right - unless someone was Francophone chances are it was the relationship with Charlotte that was the first time he came to most people's notice.

I think he's Moroccan originally, from a Jewish family and he did his further education in Canada, I think in Montreal, where I believe he also has family.

He has a younger brother who is also an actor in a long-term relationship with Virginie Ledoyen (if memory serves me correctly). She has been pictured in the past at events with Charlotte.

According to the internet, Virginie and Arie split this past Spring after 8 years together. Bad year for love for the Elmaleh brothers.

Virginie and Arie have two children together and never married. Maybe the brothers aren't believers of wedded matrimony. I wouldn't take it as an indictment of their lack of love for their partners, just a matter of social views.

We must take in account that both brothers as well both their friends all are high profile members of society. It lays an enormous pressure on a relationship: the ever and always omnipresent media, the public's magnifying glass as well the total different direction (international acting vs professional equestrian career) of their lifes. It is not the ordinary mr A meets miss B and they start a cosy life together.

I had never heard of Gad before Charlotte, which is not surprising since I do not speak French. I don't find him at all attractive, either, but Charlotte seems to like that "type" since her new Italian bloke looks a lot like Gad.
