Like many I was surprised to see Charlene not even faking it at this point. She couldn't even pretend to smile with the darling little girl that presented her with the bouquet.

Agree with this. Anyone who has followed the Monegasques for more than a few years would be aware of these rumours - that she tried to run away before the wedding, etc, etc. Whilst they're just that, rumours, Charlene certainly doesn't do herself any favours in trying to quash them, as I previously said.

They can never win. When sunny Máxima smiles her 10.000 megawatt smile there are folks critizing her for unroyal behaviour, showing her gums, whatever. When introvert Charlène keeps a restraint and poised attitude she is slashed down equally. Pfff. The opening of the new school was a great succes and all had a nice day. That is what counts.

With Charlene I think it's a few different things from different places. Her disappearing for months at a time, even for events or occasions where a consort would normally attend, her seeming bored or miserable at many official events starkly contrasted with things where she is clearly enthusiastic and doesn't mind who knows - like being in SA or recently the rugby. And yes combined with the insane rumours just pre marriage, doesn't help.

People do tend to forget or gloss over the times when she's look happy or content at public events and it's might be very unfair to moan about her facial expressions but I can see why assumptions are made from various factors.

this..
she doesn't seem shy at certain events, for instance https://cdn-04.independent.ie/incomi.../963066676.jpg
Noone is asking her to be exuberant, but it would be nice is she had even 1% of the polite and civil touch that her husband shows in public, who seems genuinly interested at every event (probably also has topics that don't really interest him, but he manages to have the people who invite him feel like he enjoys being there.)

Introvert is something different from being shy by the way, I'm very introvert, but that doesn't mean that I don't smile or communicate when people invite me somewhere, it's just that at some point afterwards I regain energy by being on my own for a while.
P.Charlene may well be an introvert (can't tell from the outside), but that doesn't mean she can't show appreciation when a host honors her like in Italy..

But again, it's well possible that at the last event in Italy she didn't feel well or had a bad day, let's wait what happens at National Day

Just for the record, she did eventually smile at the Fete Nationale last year

: maybe a dumb question but what is it that Charlene writes after her first name on the signature wall (end of the vid)?

Previous to watching the video I was prepared to go along with the comments made that the Princess had been caught off guard with isolated pictures depicting hands in pocket/ lack of interaction/ barely smiling . However, the footage suggests this was very much the way of the visit. What a shame for all those excited children.

And why can't she spell her own name?

I think she wrote Charlene de Monaco. The surface seemed a little uneven.

I didn't see anything wrong with her behavior. She made conversations with people, seems to be nice. (..)

The R in Charlene was clearly missing and she seemed to write 'de la' but I'm not sure about the Monaco part.

Yes, not walking around with hands in pocket seems very basic... And based on her reaction you wonder whether she was even pleased she received recognition in the form of an order. At least she checked to see what it was before posing clearly annoyed with it.

She was at this circuit for the F1 race earlier, I think last year? At least she gets out and about which is good to see If I'm not mistaken Charles Leclerc is one of the ambassadors of her foundation?

I have a feeling though that this photo will be quoted again for a while to show that she can have a relaxed smile it's all about the circumstances, right?
