P Charlene is patron of both organisations mentioned. See melina's post (573) in P Charlene's thread for a full list of her involvement in various organisations.

The Palais Princer confirms the departure of Albert. My French is quite poor but it seems Charlene stayed at phone with Mandela's family. They add there will be a commemoration mass the 17th december at 5. pm in Monaco.
You can find the original statement at the facebook page of Palais Princier.

Yes, I post on the board about the tribute of Mandela the announce of the palace. it says that Prince Albert will attend to the funeral. As there

excuse me . as there are difficulties to go by road and to fly to Qunu, Prince Albert will go with the help of the logistics of the french autorities. princess Charlene who represented the princely family to the memorial ceremony of nelson mandela on december 10th called the family of Nelson Mandela yesterday and will come on the grave of Nelson mandela at Qunu in the coming weeks.
There will be a mass in tribute of the former president on december 17th at 5 pm with the presence of the princely couple.

So Princess Charlene won't be attending the funeral service in Qunu today with Prince Albert? How disappointing... :(

Then why does Albert attend? Charlene was already there. If Albert is attending, so should she.

No she doesn't HAVE to. He will have made the decision.

I actually think what they did(are doing) is a better and more practical solution. Charlene attended the memorial service-which frankly came off a bit disorganized and informal,- and Albert as Head of State will attend the more official service tomorrow.

I think it would be bedlam if all the Heads-of-State attended with their spouses.

According to one of the largest Sunday papers in South Africa, Rapport, PC is on the list of accredited guests today -- along with PA. I guess we'll have to wait and see, but I certainly hope that she's going to be there.

Yesterday, there was an announce saying that prince Albert will attend the funeral of N Mandela. There are difficulties to go or to fly to Qunu and french autorities will help the Prince Albert to go to Qunu with their logitics. princess Charlene who represented the princely family to the memorial ceremony on, december 10th, called the family of Nelson mandela yesterday and she will go to Qunu in the coming weeks. The palace added that there will be a mass at the cathedral of Monaco on december 17th at 5pm with the presence of the princely couple.

in this announce we read that Albert has very difficulties to go to Qunu and with the help of the french logistics, he could go to the funural Charlene gives up to go , as the palace says it she already represented the princely family on december 10th for the memorial ceremony. She will go to Qunu in the coming weeks.

Very sad and strange that he attended alone. Charlene was already there in the country, there was plenty of room and she has been very vocal about Mandela being her "grandfather." If the likes of Oprah, Richard Branson, Idris Elba and Jesse Jackson could make it there without government assistance then there is simply no excuse for her absence. Celebrities with no ties came from out of the country and certainly do not have the resources she does.

To come alone to the grave later smells more of a photo op than respect for the man. There must be something else going on or, as usual, the palace is not clear about the true reason.

Charlene attended the memorial ceremony on december 10th. She represented very well the princely family. She talked to the family of nelson Family. Qunu is very tini and the autorities asked to the personalities to come more at the memorial ceremony. All the kings , the princes and heads of states came on december 10th. prince Felipe, prince frediric, Kinf Wilhem and king Philippe came without their wife. prince Albert could not cancel all his duties and he came yesterday. Prince Charles came without Camilla. princely couple is the one who could attend the 2 ceremonies. One with princesse charlene and the funberal with prince Albert ; the other kings and princes came one time and without their wife. Princess charlene called the family of Nelson Mandela and she will visit Qunu in the coming weeks. not other princesses or queens did what princess charlene did . only their man came and in one time. A mass in tribute to Nelson Mandela will take place to morrow at the cathedral of monaco in the presence of the princely couple. Ofrah, Jesse Jacksons came alone, it is not like Albert who is a head of state and came with a small delegation, his officer and guards. He needed help of the logistic of the autorities because the aeroport of Mthatha was too small for all the planes .

Thanks Iceflower, for all you do daily!

I thought she looked tired or wan in the first photos, then perked up and got energetic. That little boy is adorable and will grow up to be a heart-breaker!

They looked great as a couple, today!

Princess Charlene does appear like she has lost some weight.
The princely couple does look fine!
