Why oh why does Princess Charlene not want to turn up to parties for foreign royals. Perhaps she's shy, but it's a bit unfair IMO for Prince Albert to be always turning up to these affairs alone. After all, it's a jolly get-together not an execution and she need only be away for a day and a night. Her absences just seems very strange to me, and I'm sure other royals notice.

Yes, it's increasingly odd, and does make one wonder what's going on.

Her life is with those babies. I never believed she was happy until the twins arrived. I think that’s where she prefers to be, with them. It was good to see Albert though.

By my count pretty much every monarchy in Europe was represented along with several non reigning houses. Great turnout.

All very sweet. etc. etc. But NOT GOOD ENOUGH. When she undertook to become Princess of Monaco, she undertook to represent the Monegasques, along side her husband. Her failure to do so is a disappointment , and something of a dereliction of that DUTY..
It is only 15 hours absence from the children MAX !

It is not the Wolfers. It looks similar to the necklace she wore in 2007 for the then Prince of Orrange's 40th birthday. I think that one has only be seen one that occasion.

It is the Wolfers necklace. See the jewels thread for a more clear picture.

Last Sunday we saw Charlène in Paris, with the King of Spain, the Grand-Duke and - Duchess of Luxembourg, with the King and Crown Prince of Morocco, so she does attend gatherings so now and then.

That event had some royals at it but I'm talking about events hosted by royals like weddings, special birthdays, enthronements etc. The last such occasion Charlene attended was Madeleine of Sweden's wedding, Albert has went to everything else since then alone. The Emperor of Japan will be enthroned next year and I bet Albert will attend that by himself too. It's a ridiculous situation.

Let's get back on topic...this thread isn't about Princess Charlene's absence and the events she does attend and doesn't attend.

She wasn't here and that's all that needs to be addressed. Not her roles and responsibilities as Princess of Monaco, discuss that in the Monaco threads. Specifically, this thread http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...s-40790-9.html .

Thank you.

I read the Swedish king, queen, crown princess and prince Daniel couldn't come. Was someone else representing Sweden or is tgat the 'pretty much' but not every single one?!

He was also attending; see one of the pictures is this helpful overview by Hello (although still no pictures of princess Beatrix it seems and of the royal houses I'm also still looking for Liechtenstrein - assuming Sweden didn't attend).

Exactly , that's why I wrote that I had read that the 4 of them couldn't come and asked whether someone else attended given that Rudolph concluded that pretty much all reigning houses attended...

Maybe the invitation was only extended to the key royals (former heads of state, current heads of state and future heads of state)? Otherwise, Carl Philip and Sofia could have represented the king.
