Omgosh I (& and my big sister) were delighted to serendipitiously come across the last 10 minutes of this wonderful interview with Prince Albert & his lovely wife Princess Charlene.

We had been watching the Olympics, but got a bit bored, so we were channel surfing when tada there they were, lol!

Don't recall much except for Piers Morgan saying "you got your handsome prince" to Princess Charlene several times throughout the interview. And something about the rumours/innuendos/trouble that the media created right before the wedding, something about Princess Charlene supposedly having left/jilted Prince Albert the day before, when in fact Princess Charlene said she had taken her mother shopping in Paris for new clothes, etc. Also, I recall Prince Albert speaking about the Princess Grace Foundation and all that it does, the millions they give away, the money they raise for the foundation, etc. And that was it.

I LOVED IT!

Prince Albert has always been my favorite prince and that hasn't changed, and I and my family couldn't be happier the wife he chose as his princess.

ps: I'm spellbound by Princess Charlene's accent, beautiful....

I had the chance to watch the full interview during the night . I realize that there are only some parts about the interview. Perhaps 'the site of 'the royal correspondent' could send the full interview.
I like very much this interview, I like when Charlène told she learnt the rumors just before the wedding after a shopping with her mother at Paris.

We could see it again yet on cnn at 1 pm (local hour in france)

Just observing the latest photos and video threads of Charlene, look like she has had her cut even shorter I like it especially in the photos....she looks like a model.

FRIDAY, JULY 27
Prince Albert of Monaco and his South African bride, Princess Charlene, have been beset by scandalous rumours since they married a year ago.


Charlene, 20 years the Prince's junior, was even accused of trying to flee Monaco on the eve of the wedding.


And ever since, she's had to run the gauntlet of the scathing French media casting aspersions on her character, motives, dress sense, and even her ability to speak French.

oday, I sat down with them in London for a rare joint interview, which was full of surprises. First, they're the only royal couple to have competed in the Olympics – Albert as a part of Monaco's bobsleigh team (at five consecutive Games, no less), Charlene swimming for South Africa.

Second, Charlene's fantastically entertaining.


She spoke to me in French (better than mine), joked about the benefits of being a Princess ('I get to wear a tiara!'), mocked the 'fleeing' report ('I was shopping with my mother!') and later texted me a very funny joke John Cleese had sent her about Olympic countries as seen through their stereotypes.

Third, Albert, too, is a dark horse.


He has a rather dull image, which I fear rather comes with the job, but any man who can hurtle headfirst (he was the bobsleigh pilot, so the guy at the front) down an ice tunnel at 100mph, and woo a feisty, funny, very glamorous lady like Charlene, is not a boring man.

Albert always breaks my heart when he discusses his late mother, he so obviously adored her.

Thanks for posting the info about Charlene, LadyMacAlpine. It's a relief that Charlene does speak at least some French!

You're welcome. We have known since 2010 that Charlene was learning French and understood it much better than she spoke it. I can't hold it against her for not speaking it much until she was able to speak it better. Something I have repeatedly heard is the French would rather you not speak their language if you are going to butcher it.

Where does it say she likes to wear tiaras? She has not worn one since marrying Albert as there has never been an event for her to wear one.

Beg to differ. She wore the beautiful and modern Diamond Foam Tiara to the gala dinner for her wedding celebrations.

I am not surprised to read that Charlene spoke in french to Piers Morgan because she had french lessons with also italians lessons evey day. She asked to the staff of the palace to speak with her in french.

Thank you for the information. For those asking about her speaking French if you watch this video like I said you can tell she understood it better than she spoke it at the time of her engagement in 2010. She has had 2 years to improve and I am sure she has.

Last Week end, Albert and Charlene were at the lake of Paladru, in the Alps in France, they visited a friend of Albert who made bobsleigh with him.

How I wish that Charlene and Grace had known each other.

Charlene gets more beautiful each time I see her.

Not London, but Leeds.


They've presented a Variety Children's Charity sunshine coach to pupils and staff from Greenhill Primary School in Leeds yesterday, August 30.

Last year they had attended the Variety Club Golden Jubilee Ball at Harewood House in Leeds.


Here's a gallery with large pics:
