Well I am largely basing my impressions on a few friends I have got to know over the years plus the feelings I got from say when Albert & Charlene entered the Stadium for the Athletics meeting which was largely attended by locals ( Monagasques & French) - there was loud, prolonged applause and many stayed to watch them leave the stadium. Also I heard comments about the success of the Jarre concert/fireworks on the eve of the wedding & general appreciation of Charlene's wedding attire for both ceremonies.

I have to say there is a also a fair amount of cynicism amongst the people I met, but no hostility, and generally good will towards their new princess.
Thank you Elly for taking the time to answer my questions.

It's nice to hear that the people obviously like Charlene and don't think she is an opportunist like many people in some forums see her.

Princesse Charlene and Prince Albert have visited the exhibition "Magnificence and Grandeur
of the Royal Houses in Europe" on August 3, 2011 at the Grimaldi forum in Monaco - it's the
exhibition Princess Caroline had opened last month!

You're welcome! I like the fact that they visited the exhibition despite the fact that it had
already had a royal visitor. Most exhibitions are only once in the spotlight.


Here's an additional gallery:

It looks to me that she is comporting herself much better than before the wedding. Perhaps having a title has given her a particular kind of self confidence.

It may be the title, but I think it is the fact that she is now a married woman and belongs where she is. Before our weddings, we are all in a tenuous position.

I know Monaco is a small place but I am always impressed by the way members of the royal family support events in the Principality. Albert was interviewed in a Point de Vue special edition of the exhibition (the magazine is a part sponsor) & he indicated that he was fully intending that he & Charlene would visit. In the latest gallery, I noticed that Charlene is pictured against a backdrop of the display of wonderful photos of the wedding - this might be a further reason to visit.

Indeed it would make sense that the princely family support their 'rock' as it is a fortress of wealth (as shown so well in the Grimaldi Forum exhibit!) where high visibility is evidently necessary to still tongues that would otherwise wag for lack of other occupation!

I think it's expected of the Serene Ones to do publicity for many of the initiatives in and around Monaco, and the more the better.
One could say it's written in the job description.

After all, the Principality vies for attention with hundreds of states who all beat the drum for their own jurisdictions.

Agreed! I'm all agog with curiosity for the Red Cross Ball.

The pics are absolutely wonderful, both look great there. I agree that Albert looks much better than he looked years before. Or maybe I like him much more now than before. Actually he reminds his mother a lot, but the bald head makes the big difference.

Are you sure that the tiara will make an appearance ??
This is just a fundraising event when all is said and done.

I think its lucky she has 'broad shoulders', now all she needs is 'thick skin' & she will be set to withstand all the talk, judgement, gossip she will have to endure living in the goldfish bowl that is the Monaco court!
