Disappointment regarding Charlotte's pregnancy aside (yes, I'm that conservative), we must take into account that this may have been an unplanned pregnancy. I refuse to accept the fact that she wanted an out-of-wedlock child with Gad! In addition, she's a catholic and probably firmly against abortion. Anyhow, those are my excuses for her.

And yes, all these lose fitting outfits point to pregnancy. She has not had on a tight fitting outfit on her for a good 2 months now.

I'm disappointed too. She seems an intelligent young woman with a good head on her shoulders and the world at her feet. I never envisioned her as an unwed mother, quite honestly.

But something tells me this was no "accident"...far from it.

I think her late grandfather Rainier would not be thrilled with either Andrea or Charlotte.

I see her as naive and bored lil rich girl who has no personality and has been protected all her life cuz she had lost her father at a young age.I find it so amusing that the Grimaldi children are so allergic to any birth control method.

I am not conservative and I understand that many young ladies of our time are having their babies before marriage but I've never encountered a person who has a mother, aunt and uncle who had conceived a child before marriage.They are at par with the trashiest crowd who live in council estates claiming benefits or in our place, they are of no difference to our tacky Spanish zlist.Their antics are just high class rubbish.

I really don't think she's that catholic. Maybe only for the tradition, but I don't think she's the type of girl that prays every night and goes to mass every week.

Don't get me wrong, but I see her as a immature lady. She's rich, she's gorgeous, she know the most known persons of the world, so she can have anything.
I doubt that baby was unplanned. Gad is 42, maybe he wanted a 2d child before being too old, Charlotte wanted kids too. I don't know, but this doesn't seem like an unplanned pregnancy and I strongly doubt she's a girl who will have moral problems with issues like abortion.

I also do believe that she was planning for a baby!
She must have been more careful with her decisions!

It is a gossip page but this morning in the newspaper of Monaco matin, there is a report about the birth of the prince of Cambridge; it made also a resume about the events which could happen this year with the family Casiraghi.

First , the reporter says that there is a rumor who announced a family meeting at the end of august, the reporter asks' if it is true, is it for a baptism or a wedding of Andréa and Tatiana?'

The reporter adds after the Parisien' a newspaper', Gad El Maleh and Charlotte Casiraghi could marry in september'

I do not think that her pregnancy is unplanned, all of the women in the family had their first child at the age of 27. Grace had her first child when she was 27 years and 2 months old, Caroline had her first child when she was 27 years and 5 months old and Stephanie had her first child when she was 27 years and 9 months old.
So I have expected Charlotte to have her first child this year or the next year because she will be 27-years old in 2013 and 2014.

I completely agree. The Grimaldis are what is known as "cultural Catholics". They are baptized and basically only ever appear in church on special occasions.

I have noticed that posters on these Forums make a lot of assumptions about Catholic royals and aristocrats, for example that they all take their religion seriously. Some of them do. The Casiraghi/Grimaldis don't.

As for abortion, I seriously doubt that a young woman who lives openly with her lover for the 2nd or 3rd time has any moral problems with abortion. Charlotte is pregnant because she wants to be.

Wow, Monaco is gonna be very festive those upcoming months!
Everything is so quick for Charlotte. At least for me, everything is running really fast regarding her personal situation and choices! But it is better that is going to get married before the birth of her child.
*Everything reminds me of the moves of her mother when on the same age (27). Ιt's so bizarre and funny like it's happening on purpose!

I think Charlotte did want a baby with Gad. I see him as her father figure and lover. She had to get pregnant first to marry him. She is Catholic and he is Jewish. I remember the time Princess Caroline wanted to marry her live in actor boyfriend and Prince Rainer said no because he was Jewish. I remember the actor would not convert to Catholicism. I think that was wrong and maybe Caroline would be married and happy now instead of separated from her Prince.

I think Charlotte remembers growing up without a traditional father and it was at the time this actor was her father figure. He left her too. I always thought she found him again in Gad. If they marry this will be a first time marriage for both I believe. It will be interesting to see if it is just a civil wedding, traditional Catholic or a combo Priest/ Rabbi performing the wedding.

Psychological analysis aside, the bottom line remains:
Charlotte - 26, rich, beautiful, no baggage
Gad - 42, baggage and ugly.
Who won the pot in this relationship: Gad.

But then, none of Rainier's daughters had good taste in men (or luck, for that matter). And this was passed on to the next generation, it seems. The next ones to make a fault pas will be Alexandra, Pauline, Camille.

Well, i think that beauty is not the most important thing. I remember Alex, who is not the most handsome man my eyes have seen, but i prefer him better than Gad. And i wouldn't have a problem if Char had decided to unite her life with him. Actually i really like him and with Elisa Sednaoui. Even if she is far more beautiful than him!
What i personally keep in that whole story is what kind of perspective and interest are going to have these two people. I think marriage is changing people (although i can't be sure, because it is too early for me to move to that step), but what interest can these two people have? Until now i guess Charlotte is exciting living the "mortal" life that has never experienced before, and Gad is enjoying all the glamour and the life of the rich Charlotte.
So, yes, i agree with the statement above!
But it's Charlotte's life, so she can do whatever she wants!

To me it looks that Charlotte has looked much happier than ever before now when she is with Gad. The looks isn't the most important thing in the world, but imo Gad isn't ugly at all.

It does not matter If he is ugly or not, because he is sympathetic. That is the most important thing, not the looks. I would not have liked him If he was good looking but unsympathetic. So I prefer the things the way they are.
As for her brothers: I like Tatiana - because I find her both sympathetic and pretty, but I dislike Beatrice because I find her just pretty, but not sympathetic.

I basically agree with your sentiments but that statement confuses me....why did she "have" to get pregnant first?

Also I have read a couple of interviews with Vincent Lindon. It wasn't just the religious issues that came between him and Caroline. He implied a basic incompatibility with her lifestyle.

I was a bit surprised with the speed and intensity of Caroline's relationship with him. It began within months of the death of Stefano, her great love.

I don't think Gad would have been my choice for Charlotte, but I think he is far from ugly. Caroline and Stephanie had odd taste in men, and Charlotte seems to have it as well.
