Hi everyone, Oxygen I agree whole heartedly with your sentiments. I could not have said it better myself.

Have a safe happy safe new year. May all of your wishes and desires for you and your famalies come through. May you learn to trust God for all of your needs and find solace and comfort in him.

Have a great 2008 guys!

You are correct. Here’s the caption: EXCLUSIVE. Prince Albert II of Monaco and his girlfriend Charlene Wittstock are seen at the Nice airport, France during their departure winter vacation by private jet, on December 28, 2007. NO CREDIT

Last time she disappeared, she came back with breast implants. Maybe this time she will come back with an engagement ring.
Well, that's a good thing because she would have to wear a bra and spare some people the sight of seeing her braless as in this recent Rugby match picture where you can see her entire breast.

I'm sorry, but I can't bring myself to like Charlene. At first, I was pretty much neutral about her, but now it's like...why bother? She has yet to bring anything to the table not for Albert but for Monaco. She doesn't seem to be interested in anything but his pretty arm-candy (with an equally vapid expression).
I agree with you that she hasn’t brought anything to Monaco's table. But, I disagree with you on the part that she hasn’t brought anything to the table for Albert. Has it ever occurred to you that Charlene represents all that Albert likes? Please look at the menu of what he has brought to the table in the past (but I really like Alicia Warlick). Albert has no qualms escorting the highboots-miniskirt-wearing Charlene to a match with French dignitaries. Who wears a miniskirt to a stadium? Many people feel that Charlene is steps above his previous escorts.

I find this Gala article (translated) titled "Charlène Wittstock : un petit air de Stéphanie" very telling of what even some of her supportive press really thinks of her. Below is an excerpt.
Quote:
The pretty South African swimmer also would have succumbed to the effect Stéph '? Possible. Bye-bye tailors too strict, hats too much and the first lady held… In the dressing Charlene, fluid conduit or pailletés often split fairly high on the leg, turned very dresses with thin straps, tops ultrasexys, the lamés, vintage sets, bustiers, pants drooping detailed on thin sandals with high heels.

Charlene, it would be more sensitive to the talent of Isabell Kristensen-one of the pillars of high society of the Rock. If the style is a reflection of the soul, then surprising that the two young women were both brought on as little accessories.
I suggest you take a peek at Isabell’s fashion to really understand that this is not really a compliment.

Another example is Point de Vue’s advice to Charlene in this article (from a fan website, translation) titled: “Marriage in 2008: the Evidence.” Since PDV’s proof has tripled from their last years prediction of marriage, perhaps Charlene’s chances have also. What’s hilarious is that PDV placed the corset-wearing Charlene on the cover of their magazine (one of many covers this year) and called her elegant, but now they tell her to ditch it. Also, I guess they haven’t quite bought Charlene’s story that training for the Olympics is her career since they advised her to get a job.
Quote:
Our friendly advice before marriage
1. Improving her French (The language of love)
2. Call Karl Lagerfeld (To drop dresses corsets)
3. Relieving her makeup (Primarily related to eyeliner)
5. Finding a good cause at Monaco (To get a job)
8. Take advantage of her free time (Before having children)
Also, I guess PDV missed Bunte’s last year article which stated that Lagerfeld thought that she was glamorous and exactly what Monaco needed (roll eyes). I swore off Bunte after they distorted a picture of Charlene and Chris Le Vine dancing at the Red Cross ball to make it seem that it was Charlene and Albert dancing as they falsely stated. So, I didn’t believed them when they stated that Charlene bragged to them about vacationing in St. Tropez and having a costume made for an Oktoberfest that she was attending with Albert. I didn’t think that the woman’s life was that shallow where she would be bragging about a costume two months away. Alas, I was wrong. She did wear a Monaco costume to the fest. I also saw pictures of Charlene vacationing in St. Tropez and read other articles stating that she was in St. Tropez while Albert was in America. But, here’s a link from some European vacationers’ website (translation) who stated that they were told that they just missed Albert and his girlfriend when they also visited Tupelo. Could Charlene be in two places at the same time? Did they assumed that if Albert was with a blond then it was Charlene? I doubt if any Tupelians (sp?) know who Charlene is. For the record, there is not a fiber of my being that believes this man was ever or will be ever faithful to Charlene. She has shown that she accepts him just they way he is. An excerpt form the website:
Quote:
In Tupelo Hardware then we learned that a few days earlier of prominent visit was announced. It arrived unannounced nobody less than Prince Albert of Monaco with Charlene Wittstock, together with a smaller retinue of 8 to 10 persons.
Here’s another example of what Charlene brings to the table – or I should say an example of how she’s viewed. Richard Kay (ok, not the fairest creature when it comes to Camilla) wrote a short article about Albert in his column titled: Monaco's Albert is turning green (scroll down). Wow, good title and Prince Albert is also discussed in the same breath as Tony Blair. Albert was in London opening Monaco’s consulate in London and appealing for professional Britons to move to Monaco. So, how seriously was Albert received? Well, I believe not not quite so seriously (at least by Kay) when the only picture is this one of Charlene in that purple corset dress with the caption: Royal squeeze: Albert's girlfriend Charlene. For those who may not be familiar with the slang “squeeze”, it’s not very flattering when you are head of state and a Sovereign Prince and the press refers to your girlfriend as your squeeze. Obviously, Kay could have chosen any one of hundreds of pictures of Charlene to post, but he chose that one.
Quote:
Charlene is obviously in love with the prospect of being a princess and will do anything to get to the position, but how many other women before her acted the same way and where are they now?
Uhhh, I know two who acted similar and now are living extremely well off of Albert’s money. So, there’s no telling how far Charlene may go beyond the limits she has already achieved.

Quote:
That, and the breast implants -- she should have never have gotten them. Her new implants have just ruined her career and she doesn't even have a ring on her finger!
Please tell, what career? I have pleaded for someone to reveal what exactly would Charlene say that she does if she didn't stick with her story "I'm training for the Beijing Olympics." She hasn’t seem to have ruined any career with Albert; isn’t this her third New Years celebration with the man? I wonder how many girlfriends can say that they spent three New Years celebrations with him? Unless Albert faces some sort of substantive invention (I mean a godly one), look forward to seeing more of Charlene in 2008!

No, I did not mean to say that she hasn't done a lot for Albert. I meant to say what has she done for Monaco. Charlene's obviously been there for Albert seeing as how she's still here.

That's exactly what I'm talking about. Does Charlene want to be married to this man or does she want to go the route of the two before her, have illegitimate child number three, and just live off his money? I would hope she'd want to be married, but the woman doesn't show the slightest bit of emotion, so I don't know.

I'm giving her the benefit of a doubt. She's an olympic swimmer and even though she probably isn't training for the upcoming compeition, it's still her job to. Swimming is supposed to be her career but lately she's made being Albert's "number one squeeze" her top priority.

three years have past no ring, are long she have to wait, some women will have given up or find a way to talk into it, as for charelen she have given up her life for him,all these tell me albert does not really into her,he only want her because he does not want to be all alone, if he is deeply in love he would have asked her by now not wait and take her aroundthe world or let her walk behind his back on offical events , what else do you guy think?

I agree!
This is all JMO, But I also feel he's just passing the time with her (unfortunately, at the expense of ever finding anyone else with intigrity that might actually have some real feelings for him?), and he figures as long as she is happy to hang around - She isn't hanging around for love or any emotional reasons? So she is using him as much as he is using her for whatever needs she fufills for him? Where she may passify a need for him in not being lonely on some nights, she has not done anything for his image publically, unless he is trying to impress teenage girls and is willing to take a hit in terms of respect for him as a man who is anything other than a fool? So far he has been more than willing? Albert's private life is Albert's public weakness? Why he wants to advertise it, or Charlene is a mystery to me? It's one thing overcoming one's past, but another thing altogether that Albert still doesn't appear to be a man that has learned anything by it? Nothing seems to embarrass him or he would pick a woman who is looking for something different than a woman who is after no more than publicity for herself and his money? What's new? Charlene is still hoping for a pot of gold in the end (because she thinks she might luck out, I think timing? Or the position Albert finds himself in at 50 with his past? Is how she has been putting it for so long?) This is what she has been counting on? If she just hangs on long enough? She thinks it just might happen? If it doesn't, I see her possibly taking the same route as the women she follows - I see no difference in any of them, even if he decides to marry her (perhaps, out of spite, - because there is nothing like cutting off your nose to spite your face?) Albert seems to have mastered this? Charlene will not have any more respect than the others (Albert will just have less, if that's possible at this juncture?) IMO, Charlene doesn't seem to care how she gets where/what she gets?, whether it is in the absence of love for her or Albert, as long as it happens? I'm sure this is not a mystery to Albert? He's seen it before and continues to still be happy with the status quo of these relationships? Let's hope in 2008 all parties concerned find some wisdom, integrity and self respect and are authentically happy and motivated in living their life for the right reasons! Happy New Year to all! Moderators included for doing such a thankless and (unpopular at times) job!

Happy New Year everyone!

I don't believe they are just friends. I do think he is really in love with her. You can see it in the way he looks at her in many photos. Charlene probably makes him feel young and perhaps she does care about him. I like her simplicity and perhaps so does he. She doesn't seem snobish, nor stuck up or flashy, not pretentious. A simple girl who loves sports just like him. A very important bond between them. She is an accomplished swimmer and now she is ready to settle down. It just so happens that her prince is taking a bit too long to decide whether he is ready for marriage or not yet.
