Great look.
We don't get to see Charlene wearing such short dresses that often.

That is definitely not a shirt dress, you can barely see her knees.

She's trimmed her hair - looks like she will be keeping it short and at this length. Must like it. Like her look here. Casual but still elegant. Winner.

Here are two more articles about the training and Monaco's support for the SA team:

A few days ago Princess Charlene had lunch with the South African swimmers selected for the London Olympics at the
Stars'N'Bars in Monaco. They afterwards departed for London.

Next to Charlene you can see Tommy Hilfiger who had offered sports clothing for the swimmers.

Some posters have asked whether P Charlene's hosting of the SA swim team benefited them in any way. We know that they won 2 gold and a silver medal. In an article in the Sunday newspaper "Rapport" August 5 the head coach Graham Hill and the sport psychologist Henning Gericke, who both accompanied the team to Monaco and London, we're interviewed. Graham Hill said the time in Monaco did wonders for the confidence of the swimmers. He added that he could not thank the Prince and Princess enough for their hospitality. Henning Gericke elaborated a bit more, saying that Charlene's inspiration was the key to the success of the swimmers. He regards her presence alongside the pool during training sessions and her talks with individual swimmers of immeasurable value. Since she is an Olympic swimmer herself, she knew what it takes to swim at the Games and her advice had a very calming effect. As a result they were mentally well prepared. He also said that she went to a lot of trouble to make their stay a memorable one, not only paying for all of it, but also taking care of all the details. ( I know they also got to do some fun stuff like taking a Ferrari for a test drive! )

So according to these guys the stay in Monaco was definitely worthwhile...

If Maxima had invited the Argentinian olympics to train in Netherlands she would have been crucified. But she doen´t because she almost doesn´t care about them. Maxima supports Nethelands. Thing is, which country suports Charlene? Pretty ovbious, not the one which pays for her luxury standard of life.

South Afrika is her homeland, she represented this country in all of her swimming career. It seems natural to me that she identifies with her sport and the country. I don't see any problem at all, especially since Monaco did not compete. Charlene had a life before she became princess, it would seem rather forced to me if she would not support her ex-team.

Maxima is not a good example, in recalling that the parliament did not want the wedding of Prince William with Maxima because her fater was a minister in the governement of Videla the dictator. the parents of Maxima could not attend to the wedding and Mr Zurriata is persona non grata in Netherlands.
The team of monaco (6 athlets) one swimmer. Was supported by the governement, by the couple , they had the same payed stage as the swimmers of the South Africa. and they received a set of Vuitton from the princess Charlene as gift.

Monaco had one swimmer who got into the Olympics on a wild card because she had no international ranking. She got to train alongside of the SA swim team which could only have been to her benefit in the Olympics and ant future international competitions. Nice to see the SA swim team recognize the help they received from Charlene and Albert. Kindness and good sportsmanship should not be something to be criticized in anyone.
