My impressions from Salzburg pics: I don't see any connection between Charlene and Caro& E-A. They treat Charlene like a stranger, not even pretend to talk to her, at least by politeness. It is very weird. What is the point of inviting someone to the car, to concert and then ignoring. :huh:

BTW Caroline dress is beautiful, she is elegant and stylish.:flowers:

Charlene seems to get more suntan, maybe from her vacationing in St Tropez.

What do you except Caroline don't like Charlene. And she telling the whole world she don't like her at all by her face expression.

So what was the point of having her tag along then? so that CHarlene could wear another black dress? (and whatever that is supposed to be what she is wearing on top) That she can have her picture taken again since people only take her picture when she is with a Grimaldi or some untalented photographer convinces her to pose for him?

goody7058 08-14-2007 07:03 AM

Because Albert probability beg Caroline to take Charlene with them. So Albert didn't have to take Charlene to Russia with him. That she going to join the family soon. HEY ALBERT! WHO ARE YOU KIDDING.

miraglia1983 08-14-2007 07:50 AM

I know a picture can say a thousand words and it may seem like Princess Caroline has left Charlene walking on her own. But Charlene is talking to a man next to her. Maybe that's why Princess Caroline and her husband went ahead. Maybe they were in a rush to get away from the paparazzi, it was raining or they were late for the concert. Fact, Charlene and Princess Caroline do not have anything in common. But, I wouldn't say that Princess Caroline is being rude to Charlene. I am sure that she is also very interested in helping her brother train Charlene into a great princess. Let's not forget the age gap between all of them and Charlene. This is one of my main concerns over Prince Albert marrying Charlene. But the fact that she was in Salzburg at the festival with TRH's is a good thing.

paca 08-14-2007 08:24 AM

miraglia, the pics of them in the car weren't friendly either and there it was just the three of them plus whoever was in front. And all 3 of them are sporting pretty grim faces. The age gap is not an excuse for not having anything to say to each other. I regularly talk to people much younger then myself or way older and we have no problem of having a civil and enriching conversation. But if you don't have any particular interests and you are unwilling or incapable of looking beyond what interests yourself. To me it is a lack of social skills, probably even on both parts. Caro is not particularly known of moving out of her own circles and mixing freely with average people. And well Charlene is not really used to moving in Caros circles, so it is not surprising that they look the way they do in those pictures.

New pictures of Princess Caroline and Pr Ernst Hanover with Charlene.

Bahamagirl 08-14-2007 11:01 AM

I agree with Paca and Goody. I think Albert needed to leave Charlene with someone while he was on his boys couple of days out. You can see that was a no ladies allowed trip. He cannot take her on these semi formal and formal trips abroad.

I believe that Albert tries to find people to leave Charlene with when he does not want to deal with her. He does not want her to leave because she is sure sex at night. She is also a nice looking date. I do not think that Albert is thinking about marriage right now. His family is very close and if after nineteen months they are still uncomfortable with Charlene that is a bad sign.

I agree with Paca, I always talk with people in their twenties and even teens. I have a great relationship with my neices. If you are with others you bend conversations not to appear rude. You are quiet and ignore people either when you are repulsed by them or you do not want anything to do with them.

A post I can agree with, finally. Thank you.

when I saw Salzburg pics I was :lol:. Ernst A and Caroline doing their job, very friendly with her.... and Charlene walking with ... behind... Don't forget Charlene is supposed to train (see her april blab after telkow games in SA)...If I had pink glasses I could say that there are swimming pools in Salzburg.
I read that Salzburg was a jet-set festival few times ago... sure that jet-set members who enjoy music will go back with such pics!

A great post Bahamagirl! It appears that that is exactly what it is.
Hopefully PA doesn't order P Caroline to smile and hug Charlene next time they are together. I wonder whay P Caroline is taking all that from him.
PA better think twice, with the change in constitution females can rule Monaco as well, and P Caroline has every right to take the throne from him if he continue to act immature.
After all she is the first born!;)

Do you honestly think that PA can "order" the Princess to do anything?? Based on everything I have read about the relationship between Albert and Caroline it doesn't go down that way. Ever. At all.

Unless we have read or heard differently why can't we simply assume that Caroline and Ernst-August invited Charlene along to Salzburg and she took them up on their offer? Is that out of the realm of possibility?

ETA: I don't find it at all odd that CW is not along on State visits with PA, or that she is two or three steps behind her boyfriends royal relations. SHE IS NOT HIS FIANCEE. She has no official role. I agree that if and when an engagement is announced, it would seem odd if she lagged behind or failed to accompany PA or foreign trips. But even then, she doesn't necessarily have to go abroad every time PA does!

miraglia1983 08-14-2007 04:17 PM

It appears to me that the Spaniard magazine HOLA has missed the fact that Charlene was with Princess Caroline and Prince Ernst in Salzburg. If you look at the website, it seems as they are only reporting that TRH's were at the festival, but do not mention Charlene. How could they have overlooked such crucial detail? I was very surprised.

AquaMarine 08-15-2007 02:01 AM

Looking through yesterday posts I found Suztav comments: "He wouldn't know what to do with a woman who is strong and independent. It's so obvious that he is merely looking for a woman who "looks" like his mother .. but, who in temperment and talent is NOTHING like his mother or sister, Caroline. Who is he kidding?! " and would like to add a few words.

I looked at the astro-chart of Albert again and found two interesting things I missed before:
- his Venus is in Aquarius. It means that women with Aquarius characteristic features often appear as his lovers.
- his Moon is in Capricorn. It means that this type of women he is looking as his wife. Just read about Capricorn personality and you will see whom he really need in :flowers:

:biggrin::biggrin: There he runs into a problem. If other capricorns are like me, then they wouldn't bother with him for a minute... at least not in his present state. He would have to turn back and be the man that he made people believe he was during his speech 2 years ago. now since that seems to be an unlikely thing to happen, I suppose he is stuck with aquarius :lol:

AquaMarine 08-15-2007 04:43 AM

...And a small extract from Albert horoscope:

Pluto Contraparallel Node CLEANSING BRINGS OUT TALENT FOR INTERCHANGING
NEEDS POTENT ALLIANCES
Transform your environment. Make some radical ecological changes. Study history in terms of ice ages. Find out what it means to move heaven and earth.
What do you think about it? :biggrin:

IMO, he cannot take her on these semi formal and formal trips, outings and events in Monaco either. Still he does that with ridiculous frequency, so I don't see why he can't drag her along on foreign ones either. She could have done some invaluable training there, swimming upstream for extra resistance training. :ohmy:

ETA: is there any news on Caroline, Ernst and Charlene? Still rubbing shoulders in Salzburg, eating Sachertorte or schnitzels? Skiing? Visting the locations where the Olympics might have been held? Visiting the Festspiele? Sight-seeing tour of Salzburg's pools? :flowers:

goody7058 08-15-2007 10:08 AM

I think they got out there as fast as they could with Charlene.

paca 08-18-2007 06:46 AM

a little blab about the salzburg trip. of course they claim that this is another sign that Charlene is going to be it die aktuelle

CasiraghiTrio 08-22-2007 08:07 AM

They attended one of the Wiener concerts according to Isifa. On the Salzburg Festival site (www.salzburgfestival.at) it says the Wiener Philharmonic performs five times this summer. I wonder which performance the Hanovers and CW were photographed attending. Did they go to all five? Certainly they could not have been at the first of the five Wiener concerts because the first one was on the same night as the Red Cross Ball.

The Wiener this year performed music by Berlioz, Wagner, Strauss, Webern, Schubert. They began on 27 July and the last performance is on 30 August.

sesa 08-24-2007 12:08 PM

Caroline let her ride in the same car with her and her hubby? and sit next to her? Wow! For someone who supposedly does not like her, I'm very suprised by this picture.

Horseygal 08-24-2007 05:18 PM

I wouldn't read too much into the supposed gesture - there is yet to be a picture where Charlene appears to be a "part" of the event when it comes to the Pss Caroline and Stephanie. She just seems to be "there," not that she's included in converstation, or anything. Even at the Formula 1 - was anyone really talking to her, or was she just standing around......

Grace 08-24-2007 06:10 PM

Caro usually goes to the Salzburg Festival while she is at Ernst's Austrian property which is nearby; so the question is, did Charlene fly all the way to Salzburg for a single concert or was she Caro's guest? The second seems more likely as Charlene doesn't seem such a classical music lover to go all the way from Monaco just for the concert...

iloveroyals 08-24-2007 07:15 PM

I like that coat Caroline wears, a bit tent like in that profile picture. Isn't it a sixities style that a designer (I forget who) made popular ? Anyway, it suits her, it's both elegant and casual.
Not to read too much in that picture, espcially since I am not sure of the angle of the glance, but it seems Ernst is checking on Charlene, making sure she stays included in the group. Ernst, at any rate, from the pictures I have seen, always seems to talk and kid everyone. I remember some pictures when Caroline seemed a bit frosty toward her sister, and he'd be photographed laughing with her.

I vote for the second option too.

I think the Casiraghis and their friends made efforts to include her in conversation, but I don't remember her talking to Caroline.
Ernst always seems reasonably pleasant to Charlene, though. Like when they sat together at the Red Cross Ball last year, and at the F1 Grand Prix, he spoke to her a bit and they seemed to be laughing. But these pictures in Diva e Donna are very awkward. They make the viewer (at least me) uncomfortable just looking at them.

shappica 08-25-2007 06:24 AM

^ they make me feel sorry for Caroline for having to endure Charlene!

That's the thing I find interesting is there appears to be a shift in attitude toward her. Last year they were indeed very friendly and you had all sorts of pictures of them chatting happily away. This year it's almost as if there is an invisible wall or something. So far there haven't really been pics of them chatting or including her if they were chatting happily away you would think the tabloids would be eager to show this as more evidence of an announcement.The whole thing just seems strange to me.

bbb 08-25-2007 10:44 AM

i'm curious if she was invited to stay with caro at their home or just came in for a brief "united family" photo op. i never noticed charlenes "man hands" but in the car photo OMG they're huge!!!!!

goody7058 08-25-2007 12:06 PM

Yes, on united family photo op. I think see training look at Charlene when she was at the Red Rose Ball. She got bigger.

<removed off topic part - tbhrc>Unlike previous years he is, if I see that properly some kind of costume. Usually he wears suit as did his father. He is sporting a red band around his neck and the vest resembles a little that of the Palladienne. He seems to be making in tradition and really being demonstrative in showing he is Monegasque. Maybe they will publish his speech, whic would be interesting to read seeing him in this outfit, but I find it odd that after all these years he suddenly turns up in what seems to be a traditional outfit. After all the trouble we have seen this summer this sudden change is a bit off. If that was an idea of Mme Stahl then IMO it is a bad one. They need to stop fiddling with his image and instead push him to do some work. Generally I don't mind traditional outfit for certain occasions, but when he traditionally turns up in a suit and tie and suddenly in this outfit, well then he really comes across as a clown and someone looking desperately for approval. Besides everyone else, except the folkgroups, is dressed casual as usual. There was no necessity for him to dress that way. I can't think of the English word for his action, but the German word is "anbiedern". Not sth a prince should do IMO.

Thanks for the pics tbhrc btw.

:smile: well i think the outfits of Caroline and Earnest and the 2 darling children and PA are marvelous. Personally i think that if PA chose to wear this outfit then he "must" have wanted to for a "good" reason. Pa always looks marvelous and today is no different and his style change for "whatever" reason is not in poor taste imho. it's nice to see pics of him and his family. Is this picnic a yearly thing and if so what does it be celebrating does AnYoNe know:monacostandard::king4::princess::greatidea::innocent:

I can't say that I like Albert's traditional clothes, but it's a nice act to wear
them of course. Caroline looked great, fresh and natural, Alexandra was
cute as always, it is always like a present for the fans when Caroline takes her
to an event, so rare, I feel she did so more often when Alexandra was younger.

Didn't i see a pic of Pricess Grace wearing this red and white striped outfit and Stephanie (of course steph) looked quite unhappy to be wearing it but she was young, of course. Well, i had no idea this was monesque clothing a rare, but good glimpse at the history of Monaco. Well, all looked well, that color for alexandra was purfect as always Caroline and Ernest and Pa look great. Nice pics for those of us whom Monaco's history is not completely known is a refreshing change of pace. :bounce::monacostandard::greatidea::innocent:

They don't usually wear them. Maybe they did while Grace was there and the kids were young, but in recent years none of them put those clothes on. And by the looks of it Albert was the only one to do. But I don't think that I remember Rainier wearing it at all, but then again there was never a doubt about him working for the prosperity of Monaco.

What a strange outfit for Alexandra ! She looks like she was just picked up from the convent school and didn't have time to change. I wonder why she always looks so sullen on pictures. She used to be the funniest little baby and toddlerl, she made everybody smile around her. Now she looks like she carries the weight of the world's burden on her shoulders.

mizzy2006 09-07-2007 11:15 AM

Could be that she is still young to be asked to stand still and pay attention the whole time. She has started to attention functions on a regular basis and as she gets older we will be seeing her more. I guess Caroline wants her to get used to it. But is is tough for a kid to have to stand there and not fidget it would make most kids her age sullen too. She'd probably prefer going off to play.

Amen, I couldn't agree more! What is Alexandra...eight years old? Most children that age would throw a four alarm fit if asked to behave and be quiet on public view as much as that child has to!

anyway if she is in line to british throne, she must be 390th or 391 st or sth like that...bet it's not as stressful for her as for prince william :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin: i think she's just bored and if so, it would be very understanding...:flowers:

I don't think Alexandra in line for british you can't.

iloveroyals 09-08-2007 08:04 AM

All of the comments about Alexandra being bored and everything are on the mark. I just find it strange that, as a little girl of 8, she was wearing such a drab dress (it would make anybody feel sad !), especially on a Monaco festival when the colors are supposed to be red and white, cheerful colors if there ever were. Caroline's outfit was splendid and sunny. I love her in skirts and tops, she always seems to get the combination right. Also, Alexandra must be in that transitional stage where she doesn't want to appear too cuddly and clingy with her mother in public as she was even two years ago, and doesn't yet have the funny facial expressions Charlotte often had at that age, that made her so endearing, a resourceful way to entertain herself and those around her during those boring events. Also, Caroline, from a very early age (or was it just the pictures I saw) always had this very alert, curious look about her, as if fascinated by all the going-ons, absorbing it all. No wonder she had that ease and poise from an early age, she had observed how adults behaved and spoke to dignitaries, and with that taste for experimenting for herself she is often credited with, she had learned to imitate those social manners from early on. Anyway, this is not to put down Alexandra, poor dear, she has her own personality and ways, just a couple of observations...

anyway if she is in line to british throne, she must be 390th or 391 st or sth like that...bet it's not as stressful for her as for prince william :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin: i think she's just bored and if so, it would be very understanding...:flowers:

could someone explain it to me...please..

I read it somewhere...I will try to find out later.. Maybe Prince Hannover not in line to the throne but I think his children do since she is not a Catholic. But if I am not mistaken, she is no 600 and above.. quite far...very very far... stressful like William? :biggrin: no way... that is tooooo stressful...;)

:flowers:Ohhh alexandra dress is a marvelous color for her, imho. it's quite in keeping with her coloring and looks quite nice. Most children that age don't sit still that long in front of the tv at home let alone in a public outing with all those marvelous other people there. Most childrens curiosity of other children is instinctive. So to find alexandra being still for as long as she is proves she a most well behaved child indeed. :innocent::rainbow::fireworks:

He isn't. However, that only applies to him, not automatically to his children as well. As long as his children aren't Catholic, they remain in line for the throne. Prince Michael of Kent is no longer in line for the throne because he married a Catholic, but his children remain in the line of succession.

Since Prince Ernst August chose to to raise his children in Protestant faith, they keet their places in the succession line.

Princess Alexandra is currently 391th in the line of the succession to the British Throne. Her elder half-brothers, Prince Ernst August Jn. and Prince Christian are also in the line of the succession (they are respectively 389th and 390th).

Sorry, I know it's a bit off topic, but isn't the Duchess of Cornwall a Roman Catholic too?

bbb 09-10-2007 09:55 AM

NO the duchess is not catholic- she was married the first time in the church, but never converted. https://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...lic-13437.html this thread might be of interest.
i'd forgot about ernst being in the line for the throne- thanks for the reminder, its so interesting how all the royals seem to be connected one way or another- confusing too!.
poor alexandra she just looks bored like any other 8 year old might be if she doesn't want to be there. it looks like despite being bored she was very well behaved- no antics, no fidgeting, no funny faces. bless her heart it's got to be hard to be photographed all the time, imagine if you were a little girl Yuck

mizzy2006 09-10-2007 10:32 AM

I think Alexander behaves better than Charlotte when she was still a little kid. I always see the little Charlotte never stayed in one place and very active/ aggresive...

I think Princess Caroline followed the "dark suits for the gentlemen, light dresses for the ladies" rule that her own mother used to follow. To me Alexandra looks dressed fine for the occasion. IMO, too bad that Prince Albert didn't have someone to remind him of that rule!!!

More great photos! I understand Charlotte was there too. Terrific that she was able to attend since she is now living in London. I keep saying this but he does come across much better when the girlfriends are around.

I can understand why you thought so, looking at the small version of the pic
you could really think it was Steph with Charlotte :biggrin:

Thank you all for posting the newest pics, when I looked at those at the
exhibition I first thought Caroline had cut her hair again, but on the pic
from the award ceremony we see her with lovely longer hair again :smile:

Wonderful photos. Thanks iceflower!

Could Princess Caroline be more fascinating?:flowers:
Fantastic fashion choices..I agree for dark blue..it suits her so well..so regal!:flowers:

sesa 10-11-2007 12:39 PM

Seeing the Princess in the dark blue satin dress restores my faith in her.
This is the best I have seen her look in a very long time.
There are many other times that she is wearing something nice and very trendy, but I don't think it looks so good on her because of her current hair style. In most of the pictures on this page, with the exception of her blue dress, she looks as if she just rolled out of bed, put on a nice outifit, and either ran a brush quickly thru her hair, or just pulled it back.
It is just my opinioin of course, but it seems as if she is loosing some of her "polished" look. Or maybe it is that I just do not like this current hairstyle on her. I'm not sure, but I do know that I have seen her look much better than of late.

You are most welcome, Ianna :flowers:

Great pics, as always, Iceflower!

Caroline's face may be full of wrinkles and look less firm that her mother's was at her same age, but she' s stil a great "B side"! ( a fashionable expression to say a woman/girl has a beautiful back)
