I love this - she speaks English with a British accent, which surprised me; thought there would be more French influence (like Andrea) - her voice is pleasant, too. I was glad to hear her say that she is learning from the professionals, by observing them.

However, I will add that this is only the second time I've ever heard Charlotte speak, the first time was last year or so when she sat beside her uncle Prince Albert and gave a short interview in French. OMG, I didn't expect such a thick rich deep chocolaty voice. She blew me away. Aha, here it is:




What a classy, elegant, multi-lingual, well-educated, athletic, sophisticed natural beauty. When God was handing out his blessings, He gave Charlotte EVERYTHING!

Thank you Nadine. I also watched that first interview Charlotte gave and already her voice strucked me with her low key, ( very « chocolaty » as you so cleverly put ) tone... As for her moving hands, as FanofMonaco said... I get your point. I'm a latin too, and yes, we like to enphasize the words we say with gestures. We speak with ours hands... so to speak!

Charlotte's accent is pretty mixed up. It sounds a bit american sometimes. Probably because that's how she learned it. Both her mother and aunt have american accents, but there's something british to it too. That's probably due to her living in England recently!

Oh, how funny! She says water the way Philadelphians say it. Philly, Jersey, and some parts of New York say "wooder" instead of water and in the beginning of the interview she says "wooder" twice. That's probably the word that most people recognize as a Philadelphia thing! I'm sure Grace said that and it carried down.

Living in England, Charlotte will gradually adopt British English, especially if she is mixing with the "Home Counties" set.

The "lingua franca" of British artists, writers or equestrians will be very similar, and Charlotte will fit in easily, I think.

Grace Kelly had a touch of British accent too. She studied to remove her Philly accent when she was starting in Hollywood because it was a handicap according to casting directors. Accdg to biographers, her sisters teased her a lot because of her new accent. So like grandmother, like granddaughter!

She has such a gorgeous voice. I wish somebody had a clip of Pierre talking. We've now heard all the Casiraghis except him.

I envy Charlotte her beautiful voice.

But it's what is being said, that is the important thing.

^ Thank you very much FanofMonaco. Is Rock n Roll a new horse? I don't remember hearing that name before.

Carry Duff Z and Rock n Roll 9 are new this spring. She hasn't ridden Tintero yet. Maybe she is saving him for the second half of the year.

Charlotte did a little better today. She finished 19/43 on Carry and 9/43 on Rock at 1.20 m and 21/40 at 1.35m on Turbo.

Magnîficent!!! Great voice, class, calm! REGAL

I've noticed the following
- Comparing the two last interviews with this of last year, it is clear that she gained more insurance! She is less nervous.
- She has a french accent, not very audible, but she has it.
- You see that when she talks about things important for her, she is very nice on interview. She does not dislike press, she dislikes Papzs!

I agree - when its a controlled, scheduled interview, and she's not being hounded on the street by intrusive, rude 'razzi, she's a different person.

She was interviewed by employees of the GCT so it's not like they were journalists. Still, it was her first English video interview and she is getting more experience. A good thing.

What's commendable about the fact that she was able to be poised in a scheduled setting? I mean, most people do that. And personally, I thought she was being unnecessarily rude to the paps after that Stella McCartney show. All they asked her was how was the show? Love Char, but that was not one of her better moments.

She was not rude! She was polied but unavailable! They were pursuing her in the street, and she wanted to leave! She was polied she said many times "please" "please" she replied about the show, but that was it. She did not want to have a chatt with journalists in the street, and this is HER right.

It's worth bearing in mind that Charlotte, along with her siblings, have been in the public eye since their birth.

There must be times when she longs for a bit of privacy.
