Charlène has a habit in making just off-key choices for events. This was a great honour bestowed upon her by the President of the Italian Republic but she came in a summery dress. A lovely dress but not for this specific engagement.

I think she looks quite as you would expect at this stage in her pregnancy - obviously she is little tired and anxious, but the pictures suggest she is generally well.

I hope she gets the Order fitted properly instead of letting it hang like that.

Dman,I saw the video, it is the ambassador who put the Order on Charlene.

Congratulations Princess Charlene for this honorific distinction!

Congratulations to the Princess, it seems like an important award. Nice to see her efforts recognised also through this "serious"award.

I agree with the post of Elly C above. To me , she doesn't look particularly tired, but rather happy and healthy, especially looking at the close up pic of her.

Yes, it's great that she received the honor and she deserves it but I just hope it's fitted on her when she wears it again.

Lovely that she receives this honor and to see her again, imo she looks great and natural, maybe she did use a bit of botox in the past and it's now giving way to her natural look?
Hope she's overcome the nausea a bit and she'll be able to enjoy the rest of the pregnancy

I definitely see a belly, a fairly big belly, too. She is being photographed full-on and the dress does not accentuate her lines, but I see that she is definitely carrying. I think she has also gained some weight. Chances are she is more than tired, she just doesn't feel 'in the pink'. The pregnancy is a hard one for her. That's what I see.

I was struck at how very few foreign orders the Princely Family holds,the Princess now has the following 3 Orders.

Monaco : Dame Grand Cross of the Order of Saint-Charles
Dame Grand Cross of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland
Italy : Dame Grand Cross of the Order of the Star of Italy

What is the significance of these Orders? And may she also wear the foreign Orders on Monaco National Day? Are they worn at any other occasions? Interesting topic, but I know nothing about it...

She doesn't look pregnant... I was hoping for a more "showing" outfit!
I agree that she does not look like a woman who is having a child at the end of the year. How far along is she supposed to be at this point?

MoonMaiden, Charlene is a sportwoman who has a strong musclar belt, and it is her first pregnancy, it is why she has not a big belly and Charlene hidded it under a large dress.
It is the fashion now for the people to show her bellly to the medias and the tabloids like to show the belly of the actresses, I have a friend who is doctor who said me some months ago that a lot of young pregnant women were afraid to have not yet

not to have a big belly at the beginning of their pregancy like the actresses, he said me that they don't understand that each woman, each pregnancy .
For my first pregancy, I wore my pregnancy dress only at the five month of pregnacy, I have no belly untill this date.

The end of December=the end of the year, as I posted. That is just four months away.

I too also saw she's w/out a doubt carrying. Not only do the angles of the photo not help, but the draping and folds of the dress is doing a rather good job of making it look like less is there than there really is. I also think she still looks rather fragile and that this is no easy pregnancy.

Sigh...I hope she's feeling up to the Red Cross Ball later this week, but after seeing these pictures today makes me wonder.
