This time, I disagree with you: I'm quite sure that Grimaldis don't want her to marry and to have babies. They are waiting for it from Charlène, who is the Prince's wife. But Charlotte is not as important as that for the family... She's just a beautiful girl on the pics. She has no chance to get the throne, so she has the luck to do what she wants of her life. And this may be the problem: Charlotte can do all that she wants, and this lack of restraint leads her to the fact that she doesn't know what to do. So she wants to do a lot of things, too many things. She doesn't really work for it, and wants to be the best. Indeed, only the best journalists create a magazine; only the best riders take part to GCT. I think that the only way in which she can be the best without working is modelling. She luckilly has good genes, she will succeed in it. I'm sure that's what Charlotte is going to do: modelling, and partying in beautiful dresses. Maybe I'm wrong, time will show us...

Monaco = Glamour. The people of Monaco always wanted to be glamorous imho. I have read once ( please, don't start the comms such as, what we read is not reliable blah blah..) that Renier wanted to marry a woman who would bring the glamour in Monaco. And he asked Onassis to help him and he suggested Marilyn Monroe, but Renier picked Grace Kelly in the end. That's the reason Monaco became so famous. Otherwise, just a few people would knew and care about it.
With this reference, i want to say that they really want to attract the eyes of people with the women of Monaco. And that's what propably Albert does with Charlotte, too. Maybe it's one of her duties for Monaco.
And i don't say that's bad.
But Monaco and its royals have got this more celebrity style thing that the other Royals don't have. This style's not my cup of tea for Monaco.
We are bombarded with every new step Char does for horse riding, for her (very rare) writing skills and her intellectual abilities. C'mon, she is not Rene Descartes neither Fr. Nietzsche! People make a big fuss for nothing. And Char allows that.

I don't see how Charlotte can change the big fuss that is made over her. All she has to do is walk out of her apartment front door and the paparazzi are waiting. She doesn't have to wear anything special at all and her clothes are commented on. Charlotte was born into a glamour "bubble" that is Monaco and even if her looks fade away, she will always be chased by the paparazzi, as long as their photos of her sell.

Sorry, but i'm not talking about the paparazzi thing. But about the journalists. It's quite different i guess. Paparazzi will follow her forever. So they'll follow Charlene, her mother, Stephanie and her brothers. (I am not talking about Stephanie's children because they're not exposed that much. I guess Stephanie really succeded in keeping her kids out the limelight. Good for her.) Especially when she "shouts" every move she makes with horse riding.

I don't understand the Charlene reference here.. And i am not going to compare her with Char. Pointless. But about the big fuss over Charlene.. well, that's how papz work.

Charlotte said she doesn't consider herself to be a journalist. She had an idea about having a think tank regarding sustainability and clothing. She become part of the biennale? that happens every two years in Italy by providing a free magazine to go along with it. She also saw an opportunity with the GCT to provide a yearly program for them and paired up with Jan Tops. To me, she has 2 small businesses that she has been successful with. She won't get rich on them but to a middle class person I am sure her 2 ventures would provide a nice income. As for riding she will never be like Zara, but I can see her eventually getting to the 5* level and going to an Olympics or 2, similar to Marta Ortega. It's not like there is any competition to get on the Monaco riding team. Marta will probably never go to the Olympics because she is from a large country, Spain, but she is now competing at the 5* level and holding down a full time job working for the family company.More of a very good amateur rather than a full time professional.

Looks like she is wearing a Missoni design? Could it be?
I like her make up. She looks prettier with natural make up.

I don't like the clothes she's wearing but she looks pretty. Her face looks fuller and healthier than a few months ago (maybe because she is not exercising much lately?) and she looks much better.

That's not the "Ides of March" premiere in Paris. Read the caption. It's 'The Descendants' Paris Premiere at Cinema UGC Normandie. She attended with Virginie Couperie-Eiffel (who I belive is an old family friend and the one who asked her to help with the Gucci Pro-Am...?)

Here's a link to the whole album on Zimbio and Getty

Gaspard Ulliel also attended...he was "his boyfriend" supposedly...i think they didn't date, it was just gossip, right?

I'm quite sure that she wears a Missoni dress Nathalie Cox. It seems to me that this is the kind of clothe Missoni designs!

I also agree with all of you: her face is fuller, and softer. I prefer her like this than with the very slim face she had for Gucci museum opening. She's prettier now!

I agree too with what some of us said about her make-up: natural is better on her, it suits her well.

My only regret: why don't we have a pic of Charlotte with George Clooney??? About Charlotte and Gaspard Ulliel I always wondered if it was a rumour, or if it was true... If it had been true, I think that we would have seen more pictures of them, they would have attracted lots of paparazzis!

Just a few words about Virginie Couperie: she is a very ambitious woman. She's the daughter/sister of famous riders. She married a very famous singer, Julien Clerc. At that time, she asked to be called Virginie Couperie-Clerc. Then they divorced, so she was only Virginie Couperie. 2 or 3 years ago, she decided to be called Virginie Couperie- Eiffel: it is very recent, maybe is it more prestigious to wear "Eiffel"'s name? I wasn't surprised to see her with Charlotte: Virginie Couperie is attracted by the light and by famous people. Maybe they are friends now, but I'm quite sure that at the beginning the only interest she saw in Charlotte was her celebrity.

EDIT: PurePeople gallery (I love her on the first pic: very sweet and beautiful!)

That seems to be a claim made about anyone who is with Charlotte. If true it doesnt say much about Charlotte if the only people who she socializes with are "celebrity stalkers".

Actually they got the caption wrong. See here: George Clooney & Stacy Keibler: Paris Premiere Pair! | George Clooney, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Stacy Keibler : Just Jared. George Clooney at the premiere of The Ides of March. The exact same background as in the pictures of Charlotte. I think people got confused because they are both George Clooney movies. I saw the caption, but I did some research and knew they got it wrong. Getty has now changed their captions to "The Ides of March."
