Thank you for those you wanted to see them
I don't think its the case that no wants to post them on board. Everyone has the ability to do so. If anyone is interested in posting them, you can follow the Picture Posting Policy.

Looks like we have spoiled by Iceflower posting a majority of the pictures but alas she is on vacation this week. So we will have to do it ourselves or wait until she returns.

How do you know that someone did not tell Miss Wittstock that her dress was inappropriate for this particular event? Maybe she decided to wear her outfit for the evening anyway! Miss Wittstock definitely has her own sense of fashion.
The word 'inappropriate' is again a 'relative' term. What seems inappropriate to you, may not to her. I do wish she would reset her fashion standard - if she does, it will not happen overnight.

Charlene Wittstock can´t make Rosana happy by anything except disappearing from Monaco. As it isn´t going to happen, all of us who like this thread will have to read the posts full of "ugly, inappropriate, lazy etc." again and again... Quite sad to be still so full of malice...

Well, you don´t have to read me. I still have to bear the comments "gorgeous, amazing, wonderful" to describe a woman who has done nothing in 10 years but wait for a prince to ask her to marry, and who has changed her appearance to look like his mother.

If she was told by anyone with common sense not to wear such a sexy, inappropriate, unsuitable, tasteless dress to a church it is precisely because she is following her very particular fashion sense.

Is there no "middle way" to describe Charlene Wittstock ?

People's views about her seem to be extraordinarily polarised.

Part of this may well be her fault. But it can't ALL be her fault.

Surely the most important thing of all is that Albert loves her and wants to marry her. She will be his Princess and he won't be alone anymore. Surely that can only be a good thing!

"He won't be alone anymore"

He has not been alone for the past 5 or so years.

I was thinking in terms of a Wife, rather than a girlfriend. But the main thing is she makes him happy and he wants her as his wife now not a girlfriend anymore.

I didn't say his marriage is a bad thing.
But I think this marriage is not only a love match.

What makes her beautiful, black dress inappropriate? I would never consider that dress a party dress.

I do wish, when people make critical statements, that an explanation as to why it is inappropriate would be offered.

For me the title of Point De Vue is very nice, the prince wishs themselves a long life together with happyness, here is the title in the newspaper, in the report, the prince explains what is love, and he says, very nice things about Charlene,IN gala, he tells how they met in 2000 and after they met in 2005, he said her at the beginning of their relation he said her, try and we will see where it will go, he said their feelings developped more and more but he waited to let Charlene to use to live in Monaco which is different of South Africa. He also said that they already made a team, they shares advices and love, they support themselves in good and bad moments. Think what you want but it is a love match.

My pleasure. The dress is too short, it has transparent , cut sleeves, the neckline is too low. All these characteristics make a dress SEXY. And sexy is not appropriate for a church.

But what is 'sexy' for Monte Carlo and what is 'sexy' for South America are very different things. This is the land of bikini thong bottoms and no tops as swim wear. Not that there is anything wrong with one or the other!

Monaco might be a place where people do dress sexy when they go out to clubs, shopping, to the restaurant etc.. The beach well is the beach.
But I never saw anyone wear a bathing suit to church!!

As for the black dress, it might not have been the best choice for the simple reason that when you attend mass you need to be appropraitely cover: since you have to kneel (short skirt/dress not good) you might need to kneel forward (a "décolté" not a good choice) and etc...

As the future wife of the Representative of the Catholic Church of Monaco, I/We would wish to see the future princess in proper attire. Can we get her a stylist with proper etiquette please! (note that I do not blame entirely CW here!! )

PA is not the Representative of the Catholic Church in Monaco. He kneels with the rest of the Monegasques.

Archbishop Bernard Barsi represents the Catholic church in Monaco.

Tomorrow is the Feast of Saint John - in French, "La Saint-Jean".
*************************************************

From 18h30, there is a Special Mass in the Cathedral, followed by a Procession through the streets of Monaco.

It's also known as Fete-dieu or as "Corpus Christi".

I am confused...I thought Corpus Christi and the Feast of St Jean-Baptiste were separate holy days...or am I misunderstanding what you wrote?

They are.


The Feast of Corpus Christi,is a moveable feast which is celebrated on the Thursday after Trinity Sunday.

Saint John's Eve is June 23rd & The Feast of St John is the day after June 24th.Both of these are fixed Holy Days.
