*Princess discovered playboy fiance had fathered at least two love-children

Prince Albert of Monaco’s new wife Charlene Wittstock has become ‘depressed’ at her failure to provide her husband with a legitimate heir, it was claimed today.

Princess Charlene is said to have struck a ‘deal’ with the principality’s playboy ruler to bear him a child after she tried to flee before their wedding last summer.

But the 33-year-old South African is now unable to get pregnant, France’s Voici magazine reported.

Interesting article, but I really doubt she tried to flee the marriage. There was just too much money for her to run away from. I think more likely this is a marriage of convenience. She does not have to bare a child. Caroline has the heirs to the throne. Charlene gets cash, fame, clothes etc. Albert gets to carry on his affairs as usual with less scrutiny for a few years. JMO.

She's a grown woman with more than a little experience in the world and I do not think at all that she could not have known what she was going to go through in marriage to him. To suggest that she had no choice is an insult to those who actually DO have a choice in any of this.

Except for the part about being depressed after failing to get pregnant less then a year into the marriage none of this is new - it was all reported at the time of the wedding - and denied.

She seems happy enough to me and so does he.  Many women struggle to fall pregnant in their 30s particularly if they have been taking precautions for some time before trying so I don't think this is a bit deal at all.

   I don't believe this for one minute. How can she be depressed when she wanted this marriage from the
   moment she started dating baldie. Yes, she knew what she wanted and that was to be the next
  " Princess of Monaco" and all the riches that come with the title. Apart from swimming this idiot had never
   worked a day in her life, and now she lives a privileged life. She is not depressed about the marriage, if
   anything she maybe depressed about the fact that no media outside monaco and france gives a crap...
   Her ego is hurting. IMO

I am not so sure about this one. To me she seems to be rather simple-minded and shallow, but she is great with children. I don't think she harbours many amibitions for herself (she never finished school, she never picked up French, ...). I think Al is ambitious enough to become a father and see his children taking the throne. He has proved that he can father children, so it is up to her now. There is some pressure.

Disgusting, agreeing to something like this and then willingly leaving her kid, basically selling the kid for money and a title. This woman knew what she was getting into and perhaps she is nervous that Albert might run out of patience and toss her out for someone hwo is fertile.

Not possible to dish her because religion comes in here. They got married in a Catholic ceremony, in the Catholic belief marriage is a sacrament and only in rare ocassions the marriage is dissolved by the church. As this happened to Caroline, it won't happen to Al, otherwise the Holy See is not trustworthy anymore, granting the Grimaldis all the favours. Plus - Pope John Paul II who seemed to have had a soft spot for the Grimaldis is gone and Benedic and Al are not buddies ...

It was also published by the Daily Mail which is even less reliable and respectable.

If and when they ever split up, they might not even bother to apply for an annulment...unless it can be proven that the whole thing was a sham and one of the parties was forced or blackmailed into it. Then there is a very obvious case for annulment.  Confused

In any case, I am not sure I even believe this story. Voici and Daily Mail are both too trasy to take seriously, imo.  No

There is a part of me that thinks the runaway bride story is a set up for an annulment because it would indicate that she was forced into the marriage. It would be just like Albert to cover all his bases in terms of payout should there be a split. Same is true for the depressed and can't have a baby story. In the past when negative stuff came out, or at least stories they didn't want published, the palace was quick to go after the magazines or papers. Here there is nothing but silence which I find odd. One would think this negative press would be squashed as malicious, but the palace has not issued one word to say it's rubbish let alone threaten to sue. I just find this omission interesting.

Charlene Cold Shouldered in Monaco as Deal to Provide Albert's Heir Goes Sour



“People are embarrassed by her,” one court insider told the Royalist. “There was a hope that she could introduce some glamour, but now most people just feel she is tacky.”

Another recent visitor to Monaco said that society figures have taken to 'pre-emptively apologising for' Charlene.

Last year, Charlene, a former Olympic swimmer who was forced to deny rumors that she attempted to run away from Monaco back to her home country of South Africa before her wedding, gave an interview in which she said she only had two real friends in Monaco. “Now, she doesn’t even have that," the insider said.

Scandal is swirling around the house of Grimaldi again after Voici magazine in France reported this week that she was coaxed back from Nice for the wedding after she  struck a deal that if she provides Albert with an heir, she can get divorced and receive a generous financial settlement.

The 34-year-old, whose post-nuptial kiss with Albert was astonishingly awkward, is now 'depressed' at her failure to get pregnant, the magazine added.

Albert, who previously dated Claudia Schiffer, has two illegitimate children - eight-year-old son Alexandre with Togolese air hostess Nicole Coste and daughter Jazmin, 20, with American estate agent Tamara Rotola - but neither can claim the throne as they were both born out of wedlock.

Voici magazine said: 'Charlene has made the subject of pregnancy a taboo topic around the Royal palace. She might have a smile on her face at official functions, but inside she is stressed and frustrated. This subject is weighing more and more heavily on her shoulders.'

Charlene denied stories that she made a break for Nice airport two days before her marriage in July last year after hearing rumours Albert had a third love-child during their relationship (the rumors remain just that). But according to reports published in French newsmagazine L’Express at the time, the bride attempted to bolt just days before the ceremony, after discovering that "the private life" of Albert was "not as exemplary as she had imagined."

According to L’Express, Charlene fled to Nice airport, and, one-way ticket in hand, attempted to board a flight back home to her home in South Africa, before Monaco police caught up with her and persuaded her to stay (she denied the events happened), offering the unseemly deal that if she would provide him with a legitimate heir, she would get a substantial cash divorce settlement.

To be fair, you’d need some recompense for marrying Albert. For a noted playboy, he is distinctly lacking in charisma; balding and overweight, he speaks in an alienating and unattractive Mid-Atlantic English drawl. He has struggled with a stammer for his whole life. Fascinatingly, the stammer is far worse when he speaks in French, the language he used to communicate with his terrifying father, Prince Rainier, than when he speaks in English, the language he spoke to his mother.

Charlene’s story could not be more different from Albert’s. She was born in the town of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, and the family later moved to South Africa. Her father is an IT entrepreneur and her mother is a former competitive diver who won medals in the Commonwealth Games in the 1970s. She has two brothers, Gareth and Sean, and her uncle was once a captain of the South African rugby team, the Springboks.

They met when she attended a swimming event in Monaco, and she later told a paper in Johannesburg: "We sat in the back of the Rolls-Royce, and he told me about his passion for sports and swimming. He was training for the biathlon. I think he was even qualified for the Winter Games. He was charming, a true gentleman."

The couple made their first public appearance on February 10, 2006, at the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics.
Albert took the throne in July 2005 after the death of his strait-laced father, Prince Rainier. The driven Rainier had built the sleepy Mediterranean port into a tax haven for the rich and created a glittering financial center.

In the year he took the throne, Albert acknowledged that he had fathered a boy, Alexandre, out of wedlock by a former flight attendant. The following year, he also acknowledged an American daughter, Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, born to a California woman. Neither can assume the throne because they were born out of wedlock.

Most Monegasques won’t speak on the record, but Patrick Middleton, the Irish-born editor of the expat website Riviera Reporter, is one of the few to have publicly expressed doubts.

At the time of the wedding he told the Beast: "Monaco looks like a paradise from the outside, but as Grace Kelly found out, it is also a prison," he says. "It is a police state. Phone calls, for example, are regularly monitored, and if they don’t like you, or you make trouble, they just kick you out. It can be a very unpleasant place to actually live. And, unlike Princess Grace, Charlene won’t really be able to just quietly zip off to her apartment in Paris for a month and do what she wants—the world’s media will be watching."

"She’s known the prince for 10 years, so presumably she knows what she is letting herself in for, but I think she will be very unhappy," Middleton continues. "The big problem is that she will become bored and there will be a lot of pressure on her to play the part of the happy princess, the new Princess Grace, the mother of the Monegasque people. It is so unlike the outdoor, free life she knew in South Africa.

"Monaco is a combination of the sinister and the ridiculous. The thing to remember is that it is only the size of New York’s Central Park, so it is a very incestuous community with enormous rivalries not just in the wider society itself, but also within the palace itself, which is a nest of vipers. There are a great deal of very rich, idle trophy wives who have nothing better to do than criticize each other."

Monacos people are conservative, of course they want a heir, but they are not happy with her because of this, it´s that they know her for years and her true colours.  Halo

The article above makes me laugh.  Yes, she's tacky, but lets be honest here: Fat Al is a disgusting slob of a man who is nothing more than an absolute ruler of a place that is known for shady people.  I don't really feel one way or another about Charlene (she's just so boring and blah IMO), but Albert is disgusting.  He's the one that they should feel like they have to apologize for.  Charlene is as exciting as a bowl of lukewarm water.  Neither of these two are very appealing.
