A professional athlete would have had a game plan for her future, and CW is intelligent enough to not only make a plan, but also put it into action.
(This is not a criticism !)

Exactly, and not just professional athletes. Anyone who wishes to be successful should have a plan for their life. I have never interviewed anyone who was applying for a job where I did not ask "where do you see yourself in 5 years, 10 years?" and if they did not have a plan they did not get the job. Your plans might change with time but you still need a plan.

So, how can we apply this to Charlene and her "game plan" ?
Has she already implemented her plan(s)?
Or is there more to come ?

Guess we would have to ask her, but perhaps children are in the 5 year plan.

Thanks for the living room photos, during the 70s several photos were taken there. Apparently it kept the same decor from when Grace was alive till Rainier's death. I saw several years ago a photo of Albert in the living room and he had redecorated it. There was a painting of Charlotte attending 2000's Grand Prix (the famous pink scarf photo). Albert also changed the upholstery of the couches in the Hall of Mirrors where Grace's painting is.
I had posted the photos monaco70s mentioned and link to his post.

Charlene did discuss in an interview what she wanted to do after she retired from swimming. Please don't ask what she said I just recall she gave one and it had to do with sports.

Well its the Daily Mail so obviously everything must be taken with grain of salt, but if true I cant say I blame her. I'd have had her banned from the principality.

I wonder if being banned from the principality still means you are banned from the entire Riviera like it did in the days when Rainier banned Lady Docker?

I did'nt know that people get an invite to the Red Cross Ball..I thought,it's a charity event and as long as you're willing to dole out 1,000euros,then you're counted as in.

If I were Charlene and I would want to survive in bowlfish Monaco,I would be tough as nails and would have an iron grip on my husband as well.

Burnt, I am still sure that there isn't any guest list and that the guests attending have to pay as
that's the whole concept of the charity ball just as you said.

I don´t think she has so much influence on Albert. Besides, what can she do? Prevent him from speaking on the phone? Hide his agendas? It all sound a little silly. And she´s the mother of his child, you cannot make her disappear as much as you dislike her.

lol some people what a banning! There was a society in which people were banned for speaking ill of the goveverment. Was it the one ruled by Big Brother? Oh yes, the prince of Monaco can banned people too!
It is a solution is you dislike someone so much, a drastic one.

It reads like another rumor. Don't forget the rumor that Charlene and Nicole got into it before the wedding which was later revealed to not be true. I could see Charlene telling Albert she didn't want Nicole at the Ball. However, I have to question even that since she has been there before with both of them present. Also Charlene is friendly with several of Albert's ex-gfs and they attended the wedding not to mention the Balls and she was photographed with them.

One has to wonder just "who" is their palace insider. I'm inclined to believe that the insider lives somewhere in the head of someone at the DM. :) As to Ms Coste, if PA wants an heir he had better stay far away. If it were me I would have insisted on a moving van appearing and moving the lady somewhere in northern France.

The talk on the Internet is she moved to Geneva months ago. Charlene has had 6 years to learn to deal with Nicole being part of Albert's life until Alexandre is an adult. You may not like it but its a fact the mother is there to stay and both better deal with it for the sake of the children. If I could deal with my daughters stepmother as nasty as she was anyone can.

According to "The Royal Correspondent" the source is Eringer again , who of course claims to have been an "insider" and it seems the media will accept that whenever they need a story to sell papers. They should be paying that old crank something because he is a gold mine for them, and pretty much untouchable by the authorities. Anyway, I hope it is true and though I doubt Princess Charlene is being as authoritarian as she is portrayed, I hope she has 'put her foot down'. Get ready to hate me:

I'm also not going to waste any emotional capital feeling sorry for little Alexandre. Sorry, I'm just not. He is a hell of a lot better off than the vast majority of children in this world. I also hear experts all the time say that children do not need both a mom and a dad, that single moms do just fine or a lesbian couple can do just fine raising children without the real father being in their life at all. If Alexandre does not have an ideal situation he has no one to blame but his mother, this is the 21st Century and women own their bodies. She would have known her "relationship" with the Prince would go nowhere and she could have taken precautions to avoid pregnancy just the same as he could have. And, again, it's the 21st Century and it is a recognized human right that it is the woman who has final say over whether or not a baby is actually born. All that being said, I repeat, Alexandre is infinitely better off than 99.999% of children on this planet. He's well taken care of, he wants for nothing and he'll never have to work a day in his life if he doesn't want to.

Okay, hate away...

Bones .... well said. I agree with everything you said 100%.
Poor (Albert's) children ... what nonsense. One is now an adult able to make her own way in the World ... and Alexander will never want for anything.

Say what you like you can't change the facts. When he is an adult (Alexander) he will have the world at his feet do whatever he wants to. Never have to worry about employment or where the next meal is coming from. Go ahead and feel sorry for these 2 kids. They have never had it so good!

Royal Correspondent that Bones mentioned. I've been saying he was behind a lot of the BS going on. Link to The Telegraph original source.

Quote from the Royal Correspondent
Quote:
She does not want to give her the status of a privileged guest at an official function, and does not want Albert to consort socially with any of his previous lovers.’
If this is true than why did Charlene have Camilla Olsson there when she was getting ready for her wedding? Vogue interview

Quote:
Camilla Olsson, Albert’s friend of 20 years, was one of the chosen few to sit with Wittstock while she prepared for her big day. “Charlene is so relaxed,” she remarked. “In fact, I popped round this morning and she said I looked tired and offered me a facial or massage. That’s the kind of girl she is. Instead of thinking about herself she thinks of others. She must have been exhausted herself as she was rehearsing the wedding until 2:00 a.m., but she insisted I drink her coffee while she ordered another one for herself. She is a very grounded girl. Of course, she has been upset by the rumors because she is very sensitive, but I expected her to be a nervous wreck. In fact, she is totally calm and has just ignored the stupidity.”
My Secret Nights of Love With the Playboy Prince see below
Quote:
The next time Albert came to New York, he had a new girlfriend called Camilla Olsson with him. He didn't call Stevie, who had arranged to leave her usual red rose on his pillow.
"I wish he had said something before," Stevie said. "The word was out that this girl was staying in the same hotel, so I didn't contact him as I might have got in the way. "I just tried to be sensible about the whole thing. That part of our relationship was over, but we are still friends. In fact, he calls me his 'fax buddy'."

I was poking fun at this
Quote:

In other words I don't believe this rumor either. The last one was false. If I had to take a guess the person behind this has to really hate these two woman to keep putting them at each other. It makes both woman look bad. Tamara I notice has been left out of it, perhaps because she has kept to herself in CA.

I´d say that is a sexist idea for the XXI century. Women own their bodies and men have condons. Except the prince of Monaco who has been quite irresponsible in conceiving children and in taking charge as a father.
