I think the Monaco Royal Wedding is going to be very chic.

I loved the interview I saw with Charlene. She seems so sweet and really down to earth. Gosh, her father's name is Michael, too, and the first and last letters of her first name are the same as Waity's (Catherine - Charlene). What a coincidence.

I do hope this wedding is streamed online.  bored3

She's very pretty and gentle and I love the hat but why is she looking so unhappy? Well, looking at Albert one can see why easter-egg-basket but it's been her own choice after all.

He is 20 years her senior but he comes across as a gentleman. I'm sure she's under enormous pressure to master the French language and the Monegasque dialect. And she might be getting nervous as the wedding day is around the corner. Kate at least married someone from her own culture. But with Charlene is different. She said in the interview that people in Monaco are very reserved, unlike South Africans who carry their hearts on their sleeves. But one would think she would have gotten adapted to it by now since she's been living there since 2007.

I think she's unprepared because she didn't bet on Albert wanting her as a wife. She has been smart and I think that is what has gotten her the ring.

And both the groom's mothers died in car accidents! Wow. Already this wedding is putting Party Pieces Production to shame.  And it's organized! Imagine.

I think Charlene comes across in interviews pretty good. Way better than Kate. IMO, Charlene at least replies to questions on her own, unlike Kate who said there like a lump, mumbling.

Well, he's just adorable!!!!  What a gentleman and obviously, obviously in love and deferred to his wife to be in the perfect way.  I found her to be genuine and quite calm, in a non-phony way.  She didn't offer much information so it's hard to tell from the interview, but the body language was there that these two people are in love. To me, at least.  They have a mutual care and concern for each other that I have yet to see between PW/WK, who, as has been pointed out, was just a lump, waiting to have her leash dragged for her and no real sense of self.  Charlene most definitely has a sense of self.

I really adored the way he praised her.  I really did.  And, if you notice, she blushed just a bit, which was sweet.

Yes, she seems more open when she's conversing, than the engagement interview w W/K

He looks so genuinely in love with Charlene and she looks like she's positively glowing. She will make a radiant bride and she will make a wonderful Princess of Monaco. It's going to be neat seeing a reigning princess after so long of the post being vacant.

In their pre-wedding interview to French television, Charlene spoke English. Also, during the concert on the eve of the wedding, Charlene said a few words to the crowd in English. I know that she's been with Albert since about 2006. How come she hasn't attained at least a basic level of the language by now?
I know that it's difficult to learn a new language when you're an adult and that even PG never became fluent in French. Still, during the concert, she could've memorized a few words to say to her new subjects in their native language. To me, this is an inexcusable faux pas. Even PW spoke French rather well when he gave a speech in Ottawa.

Why doesn't Charlene speak French?

Because she doesn´t gives a darn for learning French.  TCP baking cookies

Translation:
Marriage: After their wedding in July 1, 2011, Charlene's princess consort of Monaco is titled His Serene Highness, Princess of Monaco, a position previously occupied by the mother of Albert, Grace Kelly. The future princess also learned the Monegasque dialect, the protocol of the European court, and French.

Perhaps she was smart and didn't presume that Albert was going to propose to her, so she didn't bother with learning something she wasn't going to use.

I only have one thing to say in comparison to Charlene and Kugly is that Charlene went straight to working on charity without Albert having to show her what to do. She looks more motherly to the kids and easier to approach.  I LOVE DESMOND TUTU!!  loveshower

Desmond Tutu himself asked her for co-patronage ! That's really great and she seems to really enjoy what she's doing. I don't doubt she will be productive on her own. The Grimaldi men have usually looked for tough and quite independent women.

 thankyou Princess Alucard
