There's been quite a lot of speculation in the spanish press about wether or not Charlotte will be attending Marta Ortega and Sergio Álvarez Moya weeding this weekend in La Coruńa.
It's going to be a relatively small (less than 200 persons) and very discreet affair, but apparently many of the guests come from the horse world and they say that Athena has been been invited (althought it is unsure).
My guess is that the press has just thrown in Charlotte's name because there is a lack of famous faces on the guest' list and Charlotte is famous and follows the international jumping circuit and they have assumed that she is friends with Marta, but they don't know anything for certain. I don't remember any pic of her talking with Marta or Sergio in any horse event, do you?
I know it's a little bit off-topic but I love the way they are organizing the wedding. Usually when people meet a celebrity they kind of become best friends in a moment.
When famous and rich people get married their weddings are full of faces of people they scarcely know and would never have invited if they weren't famous. They just invite them because they are celebs and they want to have them in their circle.
The saddest example that comes to my mind is Edwina Alexander's wedding, getting married in Monaco, a place where neither her or her husband have any family attachements and choosing Charlotte as one of two maids of honor, instead of an old girl friend or family member.
Now, Marta and Sergio seem to be organizing a really private event with the people they really love and care about (so, even it is unlikely, let's just hope thay they love and care about Charlotte and we get some pic of her attending the wedding with Gad :-P)
Yes i named her a celebrity and she is one. She is grandaughter and daughter of famous persons and well kmown herself. Have a look at the web how many pics or sites exist.
, I totally agree with you. Charlotte certainly is a celebrity. it's not important why she is one but a girl who appears on the cover of gossip magazines and has paparazzi following her is obviously a celebrity, at least in Europe. Maybe there are people who don't know her name or much about her, but if you say Caroline of Monaco'daughter most people will know who you're talking about.
Only thing, you're not been fair with Victoria Beckham. I don't know how famous the Spice Girls where in the usa but in Europe they where huge. I don't like her and never liked the Spice Girls but you can't say that the singer of one of the most famous bands of the past years has achieved nothing.
Pulling your luggage and driving your car are not values (of any class) is just a necessity. If you have money someone does it for you. It makes your life easier. And it creates jobs. Where is the crime? It is not question of class values it is just question of money. And i do not see why is bad manner to make the driver carrying the luggage. It is part of his job. When you pay a housekeeper to make your ironing why it is bad manner to make her ironing?
When i have money i go to the hairdresser, when i do not have i do not go. It is so simple and my vales or morality are not affected.
Again, I agree with you. That's exactly what I was trying to say. You pay to get a service. You get the service and the other side gets money. everybody wins. I don't think that values have nothing to do with it.
But manners and attitude do pay a role.
You may have a cleaning lady who comes to my house everyday. But you don't leave your underwear on the floor for her to pick. That's something that you do yourself.
They are people payed to tidy your room and make your bed when you stay at a hotel. You can leave everything sprawled around if you want to. But manners say that you must leave your room more or less organized so that they don't spend hours organizing your stuff before they can start with the actual cleaning.
Having a driver is a wonderful thing. And drivers always help you getting your luggage in and out of the car, the same way cab drivers do. They also pick you up at the arrival gate at airports and they offer to carry your heavy luggage, that's their job.
But making them carry your really small wheel suitcase or small shoulder bag is an spoiled attitude, similar to leaving your underwear on the floor for your cleaning lady to pick up, or leaving everything laying around in your hotel room.
I still don't understand what you think Charlotte should be doing at 25. It is normal for people to try different things in their 20s.
, of course it is normal to try things in your 20s! Charlotte can do whatever she wants, I don't have any idea of what she should be doing, since I don't even know her, of course.
But my impression is that she is someone who wants to be taken seriously and not pass as a void socialite. Again, I don't think she should have achieved anything, the poor girl is just 25!
But I do think that if she really wants to be taken seriously she should probably do less, no more. Less trying to work among professionals when she is not.
That's the point. She's 25, she doesn't have a clear career path, she isn't trained to do anything professionally, but she constantly tries to fit among professionals:
The horse world, the fashion world, the art world, the press world, the academic world. She doesn't just learn or amuse herself as it fits a 20 something girl whose path in life is still unclear.
I just think that she should relax, stop trying to excell and compete with professionals the first day in everything she undertakes, wait and learn, learn and learn, before trying to pass as a pro or work among pros.
