Lovely photos. Thank you, Phina!  Smiley I wasn't a Charlene fan when she first appeared on the scene in Monaco. I thought she seemed quite rude and not interested in anything other than the title and the perks of being Albert's girlfriend. I don't know if the rumors about her trying to flee before the wedding are true or not, but I have grown to quite like her in the last six years. She is clearly a devoted, loving, and involved mother and a loving and supportive wife. She is fully engaged with her foundation and seems to receive a great deal of praise from both those involved in the foundation and those who are able to take advantage of the programs and events it offers. I think she probably does speak French, maybe not fluently or with a proper accent, but the speech she gave in French during the celebration's of Albert's 10 years on the throne indicated to me, a native speaker, that she has at least a decent grasp. Some people are just naturally shy about speaking a foreign language in public. When I speak Russian among friends, it's flows so easily! But when I have to use it during a work function, I stumble all over myself, which makes me even more fearful of the next time I have to speak it. It's a never-ending cycle!  Smiley I met Charlene at the Red Cross Ball in 2013 and thought she was absolutely lovely: friendly, engaged, able to easily make small talk with the guests around her, demonstrably affectionate with Albert ... She may not be the smartest person from an intellectual standpoint, but she is emotionally intelligent, e.g., able to connect with people from all walks of life, and in her role, that's a terribly important character trait to have.

I really liked reading your thoughts (I share them too) and it's lovely to learn about you meeting Charlene. She sounds nice.

Really?? I didn't know that! Well, there you go: it is indeed true!  Champagne Going into the room where the ball was being held, I expected her to be ... I don't know ... as stuffy and arrogant as you would imagine people of that rank to be, but she was so down-to-earth and just ... warm. I remember being introduced to her by my husband and feeling exceptionally nervous. But my gosh, she immediately put me at ease and in an instant the nerves were gone. I'm a painfully shy person by nature, so for her to be able to put me at ease like that is nothing short of a miracle!  Oh, and I just have to add that her lovely South African accent is absolutely charming in person! I hope Jacques and Gabrielle manage to have a touch of it when they speak English.

I know we speak about her "fake" face, but I don't think she's a fake person at all.

In Charlene's case, her real smile can be seen in her eyes - they are very expressive

That's a beautiful dress Gabriella has on. So cute. I love how A&C are teaching the children their duties early on.

Charlene looks fantastic in these pics. She exudes so much warmth and she looks so at ease here. I love following her and I'd love to meet her one day. She looks so nice and kind.

Also, she has the best style of any royal lady I can think of.
