Again, CW does not know the concept of "aproppriately dressed". Another dress for the beach and another faux-pas, like in South Africa. What about a nice, elegant two pieces and a bra?
I think, sorry to say, that you are little bit hard on this.
I think many people will be interested to visit this exhibition which seems to be very beautiful. And as for Charlene's outfit, it's very nice and appropriate for summer . What's wrong with it ?

Like so often, it's a matter of personal taste or preference.

You are right. I thought she was quite as tall as he is. But it is not exact.

Nice dress, it suits her a lot.

Hope that she will learn french soon. She should have already lerned. Since the time she live there!

It's obviously low on her list of priorities.

Regarding her work schedule, she can pick and choose whatever she wants to do, and this means that she can avoid events or commitments which require being fluent in French.

Apart from any other consideration, I still think that she is foolish for not learning French, and that the people of Monaco deserve better.

Agree!!

She has been living there for 7 years! Remind how quickly CP Mary learned Danish, Princess Marie also.

Charlene is a lovely girl, but she should try to approach her people, especially because she is said to be very shy! She should abolish at least the problem of language.

In terms of Charlene's dress one has to remember that Monaco experiences extreme heat in the summer so I think Charlene's summer dress looked entirley appropriate. Also her hair was styled in quite a formal way and she kept to the golden rule of not exposing her decollete AND legs so the outfit worked for me. Can I also say that I think Albert and Charlene's body language here seems very relaxed and happy, it's as if they are enjoying looking back on their wedding more than they enjoyed the day itself which is very common among any newlyweds but is even more understandable with them when one considers the enormity of that occasion.

They look happy and wonderfully relaxed. The honeymoon must have been a success.

I wonder where they went?

Charlene is looking a bit pale and she's wearing only her wedding ring....

See you all next week (no internet for me on the weekends, I like to DO stuff!)

Please note that all posts regarding Charlene expecting have been deleted as speculative. If and when there is a pregnancy announcement, it will be announced by the Princely House.

According to Hello magazine they were in Mosambique, citing Prince Albert that it was a marvellous stay with a dreamy atmosphere.

Hello magazine has it from the Nicematin interview Prince Albert and Princess Charlene haven given
after their return to Monaco, so that destination has indeed been comfirmed


Here's an additional article about the exhibition opening:

One of the very few occasion where Charlene's smile is genuine & relaxed, she is happiest when she is around sportspeople and I hope sport will be a focus for her when chosing the causes to support.

...and I think that must be THE bond between the two - doing sport, watching sport, supporting sport and sportspersons....

Pure People have a habit of exaggerating. I've read the entire article, and about 80% was about the HERCULIS competition and its problems.

There was a very small reference about the press coverage of CW's alleged disappearance.

I'm continuing the summarising of the (incipient) court case on the "Prince Albert Current Events" thread.
