There was an article in Time not long ago about an exclusive language school in the south of France, where Charlene is reportedly taking an intensive course in French to prepare for her future role. Charlene, "whose engagement to Prince Albert is said to be imminent," is, according to the article, "making rapid progress" (Link).

Edited to add: I have just read the Zero Tolerance Policy thread. I am relatively new to the forum and I was not aware until now of the rumours about Charlene taking French classes. I hope this post is not against the rules. Time is a serious magazine and I consider it a credible source.

Anna, I cannot find a date when this one was published. Would be interesting to know, if this info is new or rather old.

If you open this Time article about Charlene's French lessons, please look at the browser, it shows that article is from 2007. They are just re-posting the article.

Pics 29.12.2008

Albert and Charlene are in the Dominican Republic at
the moment. You can see Charlene on the second pic.


A handout photo provided by Dominican Presidency shows Dominican
President, Leonel Fernandez, speaking with Prince Albert II of Monaco
in Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic, 29 December 2008, after they
inaugurated the works of Punta Perla Caribbean Golf, Marina & Resort
touristic project in Punta Cana, east of the country.

Is this really her? It does not say in caption. It seems like her. She has quite nice and appropriate outfit for this occasion, since Albert is also casually dressed. But it is IMO against protocol to take girlfriend or supposed girlfriend on official trip. But it is not Charlene to be blamed in this case.

I've copied the caption of the first pic, but in the second caption
she wasn't mentioned either. Nevertheless I'm quite sure it's her,
I don't think that my eyes are deceiving me
The trip to the Dominican Republic has not been announced as an
official visit, so I guess that they had planned some private Christmas
holidays there and the official visit with the inauguration was included.

Prince Albert and Charlene visited a friend in Bariloche (Argentina) yesterday. After that, they travelled to Puerto Montt, Chile.

There was a picture of Albert in Monaco when he went for the traditional first dip of the New Year. How many places can he be in at the same time?

I believe Prince Albert and his twin, Albie, can be in three places at the same time.

What "dip" do you mean, Odette? His bath in the mediterranean sea?
If so, that has taken place on December 24, it's been the 4th edition
of the traditional charity Christmas Bath, organised by TATSA Association,
Thai After Tsunami Schooling Aid. Pics can be found in Albert's current
events thread

I meant the one "dip" they take the first of the year and afterwards he was dressed like a Santa Claus. Was that held on the 24th of December? If I am not mistaken the photo was at the latest "Hello" magazine.

I know the hellomagazine pic you mentioned, Odette, it was taken on
December 24, maybe you've misunderstood something as it's not a
New Year's bath or the first bath of the year, it's a Christmas event


Well, let's get back on topic as this is Prince Albert's and Charlene Wittstock's current events thread

lyraedro, I have the same question.
I am sure that we will see her in pics if she accompanies Albert. Probably tomorrow we will know; I think that first pics from PA trip to south pole should appear by then.
