I wouldn't have wanted to be Charlene on her wedding day for all the money in the world - incredible amounts of pressure.

I'm really pleased that they are finding their center these days. That must have been so nerve-wracking.

Charlene can carry off a color palette that is pretty extensive and can wear some greens that are more muted.

I'm hoping for some good fashion visuals from Charlene, mixing with the usually-stunning Caroline frocks. As long as Caroline was in Monaco, glamour never left it; but Charlene will provide a cool contrast to Caroline's style.

It's a pity the official visit by the Croatian President was only a day visit as I would have loved to have seen pics of a State dinner.

That's what I thought too. Sadly we didn't get to see any pics

Good grief, what on earth is he doing? He seems to be towing her around like an appendage or recalcitrant child?

Well these sorts of photo's will do nothing to quell the raging gossip about the state of this marriage!

I guess we all see what we want to see. I just see 2 adults holding hands, and one woman watching very closely where she steps in her heals across the stones of the courtyard.

Photos such as these need to be put in context. The same gallery contains many pleasant images. Who hasn't been captured in a rather ungainly/misleading light?

Exactly! And these stones are not very easy to handle with these heels!

I can't see anything strange or wrong in these pics either, however here are some new ones:

Auditorium Rainier III on October 11, 2011 in Monaco.

They, PA and Charlene, must read the forum because I just posted that they rarely show up together, and here they are. Charlene looks good in this hairdo. She seems happier than recently but I always get impression that she and Albert play the couple than they are actually a couple, there is something weird about them, something fake, IMO of course.

I must correct my own opinion about Charlene happiness at recent event. I just looked closer at Getty's pics:
Princess Charlene Of Monaco Attends Monaco Humanitary Group

Princess Charlene Of Monaco Attends Monaco Humanitary Group
Princess Charlene Of Monaco Attends Monaco Humanitary Group
Prince Albert II Of Monaco And Princess Charlene Of Monaco Attend

Her smile is so fake, she looks like she is streaking her lips only, not really smiling, I see sadness in her eyes, as if she didn't want to be here. She tries too hard with children, her behavior is so tense and she doesn't seem to enjoy a moment with kids.

Here are some galleres from yesterday - I think they both looked fine and feeling
comfortable at the event, it's always a question of interpretation.

She doesn´t seem to enjoy any event. But I don´t agree she looks sad. Why should she be? She got what she wanted for long. She probably does not know how to act, that´s probably why she always has a defiant look.

Everyone see what they wanna see in the pics, I guess.
To me it's all good and Charlene looks great. I'm happy to see them together and I also think Charlene is enjoying herself.

This smile doesn't look fake or sad to me at all

I would agree that she looks fine, and very lovely. What I see is a person who is a bit shy. The constant questioning of her motives according to the agenda of other people truly gets tiresome. One has to wonder why, when there is so much dislike, that those people even bother to read the thread, it borders on obsession, IMO.

I do agree. Princess Charlene looks lovely and content in spite of all she has had to cope with. I do love the simple yet elegant black dress she is wearing. A beautiful neckline.

I do believe that Princess Charlene was pretty sad about the rumors before and after the wedding. She took a break and did not appear too much, like she said in the interview a week ago. Maybe she was hoping these negative rumors would disappear and they didn't.
So when she appears in public now it's a mixture of sadness and shyness towards the press and how to handle all of that.

And on Life Magazine there are several more.

Princess Charlene looks lovely and content, I like also her elegant black dress and it is an humanitary event, Some persons do not like her anymore, we know them, some like to see her , We know them also and we share our feelings and it is nice

On the the site myroyals, there are photos of the princess Charlene at this event and you will see a princess very at ease (I like the photo she has a child in her arm).

For Dailymail it's enough to take a child in your arms and you are immediately called "broody" ... It's already happen with Duchess of Cambridge ...
