I think PA and CW are interested in sports in general. PA has got to be interested in all sports because of the economic benefits they bring to the Principality.

At the moment he has to spend some effort on Formula One Racing because of Bernie Ecclestone's attempts to extract even larger amounts on money from Monaco, in return for letting it continue the Monaco Grand Prix. It's in danger of being moved to the Far East.

If another sport needed extra support, I'm sure PA would pull out all the stops.

Would it be that popular in the Far East? Are a lot of people really willing to travel to the Far East for a couple of days for the Grand Prix?

Depends where in the Far East, and how dedicated you were to the GP.

People with money and/or a passion for Formula One will attend races outside Europe, no matter how much it costs.

On the other hand, I resent Monaco being blackmailed into forking out lots more money, especially at a time of financial retrenchment.

Look what happened to the French Grand Prix. Motor racing needs a shake-up globally!

Charlene looks lovely. I'm going to say something: the "Grace Kelly" style suits her very well. And I said the "Grace Kelly Style" i'm not saying that she is Grace Kelly.
(you know, beacause there's always the discussion if she looks like, or doesn't look like...)

If you go to Daylife.com, you can see Charlene's engagement ring. It's not as big as it looks in the engagement photos. It's a nice size and I'm glad she didn't pick a huge rock. I don't like her dress, but her face looks very pretty. Her brother is sitting behind her in one of the photos.

That dress does absoultely nothing for her except show the world just how wide her shoulders are, she looks like a linebacker. And I'm surprised that her handlers don't know her body shape by now. Gee wizz and her hair those roots are at least 2 inches long.

She looks very Gacelike in the first photo. The dress and the hairstyle.
I like this look as well. She needs to stay away from those plinging neck lines/ slits up to her thighs dresses. She looks like his fiance in these pics.

One can be covered and still be sexy

Yes Jaya, a "Mogambo" look. Ms Wittstock sure looks like a future princess dress like this.

I like how they do stuff together like that.
Charlene looks like she stepped out of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

Her face looks lovely and tanned, and that is a nice color but...what is it?!

A dress or a coat dress?

Anyway CW should avoid belted outfits at all costs...she does not have a well-defined slim enough waistline for such a style.

Lol, I had to laugh when I saw this picture because people were telling her to cover up (leastways here on these boards, which I'm sure nobility around the world read on the sly ), and so she covers up *too* much, rotflmao!

Seriously, I feel kinda sorry for these women that enter the fray, especially those that enter it as commoners, meaning not from royal or princely families themselves (e.g. Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, Lady Diana Spencer, Grace Kelly, Charlene Wittstock). The latter two especially as they are not from the nobility at all. So nothing can really prepare them for what it will be like, despite receiving training on the side, they will be damned if they do or damned if they don't. One has to literally have the skin of a rhinoceros to contend with it all. Good luck! :)

ps: this is why *I* personally believe it is better for royalty/principalities to marry within their own circles, like they did in the past, leastways the knew what they were getting into.

Nadine for the most part I prefer Royal/Royal or Royal/Aristo marriages too, for many reasons including the ones you stated.

But with the exception of the Belgian and the defunct French Royal houses and a few others, the idea seems to have gone the way of the dinosaur.

Exactly.
Her waistline could do without the belted outfits.
