Even if Charlotte were engaged,she'd NEVER publicly announce it.

Anouck Lepere, Kate Moss, and Gwyneth Paltrow Top Vogue's Ten Best Dressed List

Charlotte's #6. I can honestly say I expected this. Vogue's ten best dressed always goes for the sophisticated, avant-garde high fashion type.

Charlotte in Barbizon

Charlotte looked cute during horse riding competition. It is good to see her horse riding again. Is it known how did she place during this competition?

I wonder why there are so many rumors about her possible marriage. I hope she doesn´t make the same mistake her mother did. She´s almost the age Caroline was when she married for the first time. And she was too young for that. I hope it´s pure speculation.

Well, it has been years since she's competed or ridden regularly; she'll improve, as time goes on. I don't see Valentine's name anywhere - perhaps she didn't compete?

yeah someone pointed that out on the TFS and according to a few people on TFS Charlotte and Valentine are in different ranks or leagues. They explain it better (I don't know anything about horses ) but Valentine is a A rank and Charlotte is lower like C or D right now. She used to compete way higher, but its been 4 years

Charlotte's results are not spectacular, but it is still awesome that she is going back to horse riding. It has been long break for her. She seemed relaxed during competition and looked almost like a teenager in some pics.

Only the amazingly talented with the best horses can return in the competition circuit like they used to.
It's good she is starting lower. Her horse will have to get used to compete too. It's not only Charlotte.

Is it the same horse she had before? When you take time out, it's always wise to start with the lower fences so neither rider nor horse gets hurt. Safety first in which case as posters discussed before, she needs to buy a new helmet.

It's a new horse yes.

Albert Zoer did the same when he broke his leg before the Olympics and could start again. Not starting in a big competition but a small competition in a riding school. Okidoki could use to the things around him again, Albert was able to test him out without pressure and they both got more rythm. And he was out for jst a few months.
If the combination between horse and rider is good she will be riding better results soon. it just doesn't come in an instance.

Charlotte was never a top rider. Valentine is in a completely different league.

Even when Charlotte was riding regularely she used to enter 1.10 or 1.20 competitions. I'm not sure if she even rode a 1.30 ever. That's amateur level. A good amateur level, but very far away from the top riders.
If you keep in mind that she has the means to have the best trainer and the best horses, well... it is kind of obvious that she is not specially talented.
I'm not saying she is bad, mind you, she is a good amateur, but nothing else. The only reason she competed in top level events like the Monaco Horsejumping is because grandpa introduced amateurish pony level competions so that his grand niece and friends could have some fun.
While Charlotte has been retired from the horse riding world the Roziers have been compiting all around with her old horses like Folka and they have been riding top level competitions with them and getting good results, which means that the horses were very good and they were been a little bit wasted with Charlotte.

Charlotte can't be compared with Valentine, and even less with the such as Athina Onassis, princess Anna, or Zara Phillips who really rides top level.

I'm not criticizing her, mind you. No one is under the obligation to be a brilliant horse rider!!! She is an interesting cultured young woman who happens lo like horse riding and who has a very good level for an amateur. Nothing wrong with it.
