I would love Charlene to inject some real Royal identity back into the Monaco Royal Family if she marries Albert. They (Caroline and Stephanie) have spurned tiaras and orders for too long now so I would love her to be a really grand princess with all the trimmings to give Monaco back a bit of the status that Princess Grace did.

P.S. I know Princess C does wear her tiara a lot outside of Monaco at other Royal events but thats not what I am talking about here.

You think being a princess is all about about wearing a tiara and posing for pictures to promote oneself? You don't think the sisters are doing a good job? I think they might know being a princess (by birth) is more than wearing a tiara, like creating and running charities where they have a real interest. They don't just hitch a ride on someone else's cause because they have a title or were interested in obtaining one. They actually have an interest in the charities they promote - they use their titles and their images to promote causes and charites they want to bring attention to, not the other way around!

Also Grace is the one that started many of these charities. She brought her own charitable nature and her own beautiful image to Monaco, that she earned as an Oscar winning actress. She was use to actually working, she didn't expect Monaco to create an image for her, rather she brought it with her and helped create an image for Monaco . I don't think she would appreciate someone else trying to cash in on her image and what SHE created and worked hard for. I doubt she would be happy for someone to represent her or her charities in any way, who was just interested in being a recipient of her son's wallet or position in life - you know, a Tiara!

I would think the next princess is going to need to actually be charitable not a obvious desperate attempt to be seen as charitable. It takes more than just showing up on the arm of someone who was willing to buy a dress for you to appear in, and then buy your ticket to get admittance inside. In what way does a woman look charitable here? Then to show up with the same dress bought by someone else to auction off the following year, at an event for a cause that you have not done one thing for? So someone actually bid on a dress that Prince Albert's date wore? . If Charlene wanted a charitable image she should have created it for herself when she lived in her country that is in so much need? The one Charlene is meant to have represented by swimming for Her country that she doesn't seem to even want to claim as her own. IMO considering all -- It is a very hard sell to connect Charlene's name with any kind of charity without it seeming ridiculous. She has had all the time in the world to do something charitable for someone while she was living off of another person's dime, even that just sounds wrong , but it's better than not doing a thing for someone else or even oneself when one is given the opportunity.

Points well taken Sandsla. If Charlene had slowly developed her own charitable interests and were seen at those events without Albert or it was known in SA that she did charitable works and organizations that supported that attribute, then I would say that she was a charitable person in her own right. However, this fact has not been well supported in any of her interviews or elsewhere. I wonder if Albert is behind her Wildlife Foundation gala appearance in Singapore or if the dress designer came up with it to get press for herself? I don't know because it's just not clear. You are right about Grace who was kind and understood what power she had to do good works for those less fortunate, and I applaud your comments about Caroline and Stephanie as their hard work is not applauded in the press.

Charlene has a nice coat, she looks attractive. But she and Albert don't look like couple, just two friends standing together.

I agree. The third photo is a nice photo of her, and the one of Albert in the coat is nice of him, but they don't look like a couple.

There are times when they look so cute and in love, then there are times when they are more formal.

I didn't see any chemistry or eye contact between these two in the latest pictures.
