Please don't do this to us, smdouglas ...... however, on the other hand, some of us may well have been pleased :-))) ....but, if so, they ended up with egg on their faces !!

Joking aside, this BBC article on Gaddafi lends credence to the tale....

As per RTE News HSH Prince Albert II will visit Drimurla near Newport in County Mayo,which is the ancestral home of the Kelly Family.

The Prince & his fiancee arrived in Dublin this morning & their first port of call was to visit the Irish President.

I really dont like how she is dressed. Usually she is really elegant (even if I found her way of dressing without personality) but today it's old and frumpy for an old teacher or something like that. No colour excepted for the Irish President, wouaw what a colour. Love it.

Can't agree with you totally, Rosapru - she looked reasonable, but she could have looked on her "Table of Flags" and got the Irish colours into her scheme!

Something looks "off" with CW in these photos. She is usually so elegant but not in these pictures.

And the outfit she is wearing is NOT flattering her at all.

I agree, the efforts today did not give Carla Bruni much to worry about when it comes to the fashion stakes!

Don't like the outfit. She can't pull off that jacket...

All of you are right - I feel rather disappointed at CW's lack of finesse and savoir-faire. There are two more days to get through ....

Riviera Radio (based in Monaco) will be broadcasting LIVE from Dublin tomorrow.

The boys from Riviera Radio have something like preferred status when it comes to PA and his events.

The pants looked at least 3 sizes too large...they were baggy like pajama bottoms!

She has looked so consistently elegant lately that it is what I have come to expect from her always!

What an awful dress! What was she thinking? She should be advised on what parts of her body should not be enhanced.

Charlene looked so insecure & almost robotic at most pics from Ireland. She has no warmth. Albert, to contrary, gets well along with crowd and he is also on ease talking to heads of states and regular people. He also is a warm person.
Charlene's outfits were nice & stylish, but she was not stylish at all. It seemed that clothing were wearing her. Her smile was so fake, that it was just painful to watch.

Charlene looked great at the state dinner. Wonderful look, a bit daring, yet elegant dress, lovely accessories. I really like it!

Sometimes I think she has some dificulties to move her facial muscles. But I may be worng of course.
