On their third day in Poland today, October 19, Albert and Charlene have visited the death camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau and laid flowers at its Execution Wall, a visit one doesn't forget for the rest of one's life..

I agree with you. I'd like to know what's wrong with Princess Caroline attending? She is the Hereditary Princess of Monaco and as such should be doing more things like this as Albert did himself for Rainier. Prince Edward attended Albert and Charlene's wedding plus Rainier's funeral and he is eighth in line. Prince Charles didn't attend it or Princess Victoria's wedding.

Thank you for saying basically the same thing I a few days ago that they have a cocktail party before the Gala as they always do. This has also been mentioned in posts every year.

ETA: Another reason I am sure they didn't attend is they are still in Poland and the civil wedding was held today.

I agree, Albert & Charlene just couldn't make it. I think sending The Princess of Hanover was the best thing to do.

I agree. Charlene has been looking so down lately. Shuch a nice looking lady but need to lighten up a bit. I enjoy watching Albert & Charlene on tour but her pictures make me feel down.

Lithuania, Poland, back to Monaco (I presume) and fly to America, IMO, that would be far, far too much travel in such a short space of time.

From the few pictures that I have seen of Caroline on her way to the Gala dinner she looks thrilled to be there. She is probably only too delighted to be attending such a lovely event. So, that's all good then .....

Auschwitz should make anyone feel down. A smile and high energy would be quite out of place here. I give her credit for even going. I know I would have nightmares for weeks afterwards.

Yea I was going to say- her expression and demeanor was quite occasion appropriate.

I'm not talking about that, I was just talking about her expressions throughout the trips.

They was in Poland until 20th Oct, so that might be the reason why they couldn`t make it to Luxembourg.

Pss Charlene looks genuinely upset at the camp. If you've never been there, it is difficult to understand the feelings that can be invoked.

She wears strong colors very well. They both look quite happy to be in NYC.

Gorgeous as usual! And they look like they had a splendid time in New York.

And the striking red color looks positively otherworldly on Charlene, like a painting, it highlights her lovely natural luminescent makeup free face. Points out how wonderful her skin looks. So innocent and natural looking, honestly makes her appear about 12 years old.
