I understand EURO NEWS is to show the Wedding LIVE via the INTERNET (possibly translation) so everyone should be able to get this onto their personal computer at home.

This is meant to be a religious ceremony......
Can you clarify what you mean by "into" the ceremony...

If Albert is no longer having a "dating" relationship with his ex-girlfriends, I don't see a problem. Just for comparison, the Cambridges both had ex-s at their wedding and it was a religious ceremony.

KittyAtlanta that is true...but the Cambridges did not have exes who were :

1)Married to other people at the time they dated the bride and groom
2)Sold their stories to the tabloids, or stalked the Cambridges and harrassed them at public engagements

Tamara and Nicole are guilty of all of the above. I would not blame Albert or Charlene a bit if they did not want them at the wedding.

10 hour interview with the couple? Have I got this wrong? Shame it is not in English!

Thank you for posting these interviews. They both look very relaxed.

Nice interviews. They do look pretty relaxed. My question is this. Why has she not learned French? I would think it should be something she would want to do since she will become a part of that country.

The subject of Ms Wittstock's fluency in French...or lack thereof...is the subject of much heated discussion on more than one thread.

Some posters understand and do not think it's unusual.

I am not in that category of understanding posters but I am hopeful that CW will rectify this after the wedding...and quickly.

the south Africa newspaper sunday times published a cope of day, a report which said that the africaner band called Romanz will sing the favorite charlene wittstoch's song 'with all my heart 'as she will enter in the palace. the group was received in the palace by the prince and Charlene. They will sing a duet during the ceremony with the italien singer ugo?.
With all my heart is a christian song.
For the interview on Fr3, We laughed a lot because the report was a little comic, He said 'Your Highness your parents will not be there, they are dead' ' My mother who listened with me the interview said me. ' The poor man is so impressed that I thought He would say they made a travel.At a moment he mixed all the english and french words in a question. We saw the prince rolling his eyes.

melina-premiere...I am a little confused...will CW enter the palace to that music, or will she enter the Courtyard for her Nuptial Mass accompanied to that tune?

Thanks!

Actually, your response of "that is true" is the proper answer to my statement. I admire both Albert and Charlene for being able to move past less agreeable times.

Again, I ask the question could/should Albert have helped her more with the French language or paid for an expert to tutor Charlene. It would have taken hard work but only Charlene knows why it has not worked out thus far her speaking/understanding some French.

He could have and should have done both..BUT. CW is not a recalcitrant child. If she was really motivated to become fluent in the language that was being spoken all around her she could easily have done so. This is a woman who achieved Olympian status in swimming after all...where there is a will there is a way.

In her shoes, I would have had at LEAST three days a week of immersion...where I insisted on being spoken to in French ONLY.

As I have said many times...it was apparently a matter of priorities....

ETA: She apparently understands French fairly well. I have seen video of her at Mass in the Cathedral, smiling and nodding along as the celebrant speaks.

So all it takes is a little further effort.

Charlene seems quite a strong-willed person. She may be able to determine her own views, thoughts, actions....
