On the webside of "Royal Riviera Monaci", it is said that Charlene Wittstock will be with him and on november 1th, they will visite the empress of Japan.

Looks like a mutual visit - PA hosted Princess Hitachi on July 13th, 2010, at the art exhibition "Kyoto-Tokyo".

Prince Albert and Charlene Wittstock attend an event entitled "Monaco and
Marine Protected Areas" on the sidelines of the 10th Conference of the Parties
to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP10) in Nagoya, central Japan
October 28, 2010. Senior officials from nearly 200 countries are meeting the
city of Nagoya to set new goals for 2020 to fight animal and plant extinctions
after they missed a goal for a "significant reduction" in losses of biological
diversity by 2010.

Well he has lost a lot of weight... love does that usually !

KittyAtlanta 10-28-2010 11:31 AM

The small pins they are wearing look alike, although his has a red stone and hers looks yellow. Is this some sort of event symbol? Anyone know?

Nathalie Cox 10-28-2010 12:06 PM

Mmm...again, the attempting to make her look like Grace...but she looks more like a widow..
Albert does look good though.
The best of this: the cause.

Christine10 10-28-2010 02:24 PM

It's nice to see her out and about again, i like the pearls.

Lakshmi 10-28-2010 11:30 PM

It is first so high profile event abroad--since their engagement-- that Albert takes Charlene.:neutral:
IMO Albert did not lose weight, it is his tailored suit that does a miracle. :glare:

I am confused on what Charlene is supposed to wear as so not to appear Grace like.

She is a tall blonde. As Grace was a somewhat famous model, an Academy Award winning actress and a style icon as a there anything that she hadn't done or worn prior to her death? There is always going to be a Grace comparison for Charlene. There isn't a color or jewel that Charlene hasn't worn in the past --- that hasn't been done by Grace before. Perhaps she should dye her hair?? Is Grace the only woman to have worn some of the dresses that she wore? Maybe instead of trying to be Grace...she just happens to like the same things as Grace. I personally, like the classic style of dress that Grace wore ---- am I trying to be like her?

I for one, think that Charlene should allow her hair to grow. But other than that, she looks nice. I think its somewhat weird to bring a fiancee on a foreign tour...I don't recall that being done for any other royal house....but those Grimaldi's....always trendsetters.

CW is not smiling in any pictures. Why they trying to make CW look like PG.

Renata4711 10-29-2010 08:22 AM

Zonk, I agree with you about CW - whatever she'll wear or not wear, someone will be commenting on her clothing, hairstyle, etc.

But it's not her fault that she is a tall blonde. She tries to fit in with PA's lifestyle, and, much of the time, she succeeds in that endeavour.

The "Grace" issue will always be there, and both PA and CW are well used to it being referred to. It's the public that has the problem, not the two of them.

Actually, there is one aspect which connects the two women: both have made a home in Monaco after having made a long journey to settle in Monaco. Grace did experience hostility when she arrived and married her Prince, and so does/did Charlene. Both had/have issues about not speaking French well enough.

The detractors can be won over in time, but the lack of speaking the two main languages of the community (French and Monegasque) can't be fixed in a hurry, and it can present a strong, but not permanent barrier.

I wonder if Grace has still a special meaning for the younger generations in Monaco...

Nathalie Cox 10-29-2010 12:42 PM

Thanks for the pics! This last dress is nice, but her stare...she is like lost in the last two pics. And in the first one...:ninja:

Christine10 10-29-2010 01:12 PM

I think she looks beautiful-she looks elegant.

Renata4711 10-30-2010 04:44 AM

Beautiful .... yes.... elegant ..... yes ..... but I agree with Nathalie - her stare is disconcerting, to say the least.

garcía 10-30-2010 07:44 AM

Has Charlene a "nose job" done? It seems so ... And I think that´s what has made her stare change a lot ???

Christine10 10-30-2010 09:32 AM

Good Morning Ladies:

Charlene always had that far away look, remember she is just accompanying him, it's not about her. She is not asked to speak, or give her opinion, yet. She is just buy his side.

She's had a lot more than just a nose job! Take a look at her real face ...
