Yep, the "progress" in our society is obvious in monarchies around the world.

Very true. Sad but true.

Of course it isn't. It is less expected from royals, as they are a symbol of traditions. That's all.

We shouldn't expect a young woman who does not carry a royal title and is very much a private citizen to conform to those ''traditions.''

I love the new Gucci video, especially the magnificent scenery and photography of the animals, nature, new purse, and even Charlotte herself, lol. Btw, I'm wondering when this latest campaign was shot? I ask because Charlotte doesn't look pregnant, hmmm.... ***ps: glad to see Gucci didn't drop Charlotte as was speculated in the past***

Haven't read any of the articles nor do I plan to after reading the comments, but wanted to say nobody is forced to follow Charlotte on the boards/forums nor read any of her interviews or videos, et al, so if you don't like her or what she has to say, what's the problem? Seriously, just ignore her, problem solved.

That said, I have to be honest and say Charlotte has lost some of her appeal for me. I s'pose I used to have somewhat of a halo around her, no more. I'm disappointed in her, expected more, much more when it comes to morals, values, being a role model, blazing her own path, etc. But that's just me. She's human after all.

Here's wishing Charlotte much luck & happiness & safety & joy in her future!

think she is already 'pregnant in this video ... the lines are soft and the belly is never seen .. This is most likely his campaign closing with GUCCI. Made in this way because of its pregnancy..

I feel uneasy about this, partly because of my reaction which is to agree that it does seem humilating for her when I generally don't blink an eye when people have children out of wedlock, and I'm trying to work out why I feel this way.

I think that since this prominent couple is having a baby they should be seriously contemplating marriage, and if they are not engaged I wonder why. Was the baby an accident? Is their relationship unsound? Is he going to bolt? He's a bit older than her and I feel he is a cad even though it might be a mutual decision or maybe he asked and Charlotte said no.

I think it would have been better if Charlotte had been the one to make the statement, or if it had been a joint statement. If she'd been the one to say it I would more easily accept it as a mutual decision. As it is I feel it was tacky of him since it makes me doubt his bona fides.

I think a "no comment" would have been a more judicious and diplomatic response than the one Gad made. That was not debonair of him to say what he did.

BoB, I agree with you and with Roslyn. A gentleman would allow the pregnant girlfriend to issue the "no, I won't marry" comment or better yet have simply smiled evasively and said "no comment".

My hunch is that this relationship will not go the distance, even if they do get married.

This is not the first tacky remark he's made.For someone like Charlotte, who apparently values discretion in her "circle" makes me wonder.
The video is typical Bruce Weber. The way the handbags are slipped into the video are hilarious.
According to the Huffington Post above, this is the fulfillment of her Gucci 4 part contract.

Why should he deny the facts? She is obviously pregnant,he was asked if they were engaged, why should he evade the question which would seem a pretty stupid thing to do and would not help anyone. Just be honest and admit the fact, they are not currently engaged to be married but are expecting a child. Being honest should not be taken as an insult by anyone.

Where exactly would the dishonesty be in a "no comment" or a "right now, we are focusing on the birth of our first baby"? I fail to see it.

If mere Charoltte fans sensed the lack of elegance in Gad's remarks, I can only imagine the impact they might have had on Charlotte herself.

Gad is not a diplomat. He is real. He answers truthfully. I think this trait is just what Charlotte needs. Did you ever hear opposites attract?

I am sorry she did not find her prince on the white charger. Maybe he will turn into on for her sake. But Gad had a boy with his live in and never married her. He is the one with the problem of marriage.

Gad is really lucky with that story. He is expecting a child with a woman of a royal blood (although she doesn't hold a title), i am sure that he sees her like a princess.

Anyway, i like the video and i am "jealous" of that model-like part of Charlotte

But, the video itself brings out something fake to me. Too many exaggerations, i don't know how to describe it.
