I don't think I've ever seen her smoke as much as she's doing now with Gad. And you guys are right, it is her birthday today. She's 26 now. Congrats Char!

Simply because a few years ago, it was still allowed to smoke inside bars and cafés in France. It's not that she smokes more, she simply has to do it always outside when in the US and now also in France, that's why you see more pics of her smoking.

This discussion about whether or not Charlotte could marry in the Church seems irrelevant. At present she is not living a life sanctioned by the Church. Having 'boyfriend" after "boyfriend" in a sexually open way is not the mode of life prescribed by the Church. In any case, the Church used to allow marriage to non-Catholics if a promise was made to raise the children in the Catholic church--this was when I was young and was a part of the Catholic church. The bottom line is (from the Church perspective) that she is living in sin and also flaunting it by going to public places and allowing her picture to be taken there by media.
The "Catholic" nature of the Monaco royals seems to be hypocritical, as they all seem to live this way. And of course it's true of other royals but not all.
The Grand Ducal Family of Luxembourg presents a picture of a family living as Catholics. Some of them have stepped outside the rules occasionally, but not in an "in your face" sort of way.
For this reason I find the Monaco royals interesting, as we all do, but something is wrong with them in the head if they think they are living as Catholics.

"but something is wrong with them in the head if they think they are living as Catholics."......well they all seem to follow the Catholic Churches teachings on not using artificial birth control.

Charlotte is a private person entitled to live her life as she sees fit. More power to her.

Yes she is, however if she professes to be Catholic (and I have no idea if she has or not) and lives contrary to the Faith in a manner that causes scandal she's going to be called on it.

I don't think Charlotte is any different from most Catholic women today. A very high percentage of American Catholic women use the pill (around 80% or higher) and have sexual relations before marriage.The hypocrite is the Catholic church itself. A highranking Catholic official in Kansas City was just convicted of covering up pedofile activity. I know the same happened in Philadelphia.

Well first you have to realize how the questions are phrased and who they consider Catholic in the polls. Someone can call themselves Catholic and they haven't set foot at Mass in 10 years.

When you ask the same questions of faithful weekly Mass attenders you get very different answers. So be careful about what you believe simply because a poll says it.

The Church is not a hypocrite because there are sinful people among Her. There will be tares among the wheat until the harvest.

I believe you are in error about the situation in Kansas City. There was no coverup. The priest was turned over to authorities when the allegations were made and he has gone thru the criminal justice system and been found guilty.

My God! why this hysteric language? Actually in Europe they are million of people living free sexual relations and one day they marry in church and they are not rejected! Spaniards or Italians or Polish, considered very Christian, but other nationalities also. The Church accepts all people willing to get in!
Living in sin ! for Charlotte! wake up all! she is 26! and she is the majority!

You are half right Pranter. The priest admitted yesterday to 5 counts of child pornography. A life sentence will be proposed by the prosecution. The bishop and the Kansas City/St Joseph Diocese trial starts 9/24 for failing to report suspected child abuse . It is the cover story in this mornings Kansas City Star.

As for the first matter, once you are accepted into any religion who are always a member unless you are kicked out or transfer to a different religion.I also think the US has a much higher percentage of actively practicing Catholics than, for example, Europe.

I agree to disagree and as this is off topic we should probably move on to a new subject.

Yes it does! It which other time there was equal rights for homosexuals as regard marriage, adoption, etc? It is starting to happen now. Did people divorce 200 years ago? I believe calling someone who´s dating someone a sinner is beyond old-fasioned not to say ridiculous. And the poster made some unpleasant remarks like "Having 'boyfriend" after "boyfriend" in a sexually open way is not the mode of life prescribed by the Church" or she is living in sin and also flaunting it by going to public places and allowing her picture to be taken there by media.
What is she supposed to do? Live like a nun? Hide at home because she has a boyfriend? Or worst, not having a healthy relationship with her boyfriend because her family is catholic?

As for the Monaco family being hipocritical,What about Fekipe of Spain and Philip of Belgium? Dis they only have one girlfriend?

So sorry for the off-topic. I can´t believe some people still think like in the Medieval ages.
Love the pics, enjoy Charlotte in your brithday!!

Something that is sinful doesn't change because of the year we live in.

Because something is now permitted by society does not mean it's no longer a sin or that it should be done.

I didn't say dating was sinful so that's not part of what I'm talking about.

How is any of this about a current event? Unless she is shown attending a religious service lets leave religion and "sin" out of things.

Who are you or the Church to say what it is permitted and how people should live? It is sinful for you and a bunch of fanatics from Rome. Leave her alone!! Being in love is healthy!
