Albert and Charlene Busy Apart

In a further taste at what her life as a princess will entail, Charlene was in Athens, Greece this weekend where she attended the opening ceremonies of the summer games of the Special Olympics, for which she is, as we know, the new global ambassador. She rubbed shoulders with a few celebrities who hold the Special Olympics dear, including the former first lady of California Maria Shriver -who has been in the news alot lately. That photo rather stood out for me, one lady about to walk down the aisle to say "I do" and the other certainly wishing she had said "I don't".

Meanwhile, back on the homefront, HSH Prince Albert II and HRH Princess Caroline watched the 2011 Global Champions Tour in Monte Carlo, of which the lovely young Charlotte Casiraghi is serving as honorary president of the Horse Jump Show. Our Charlie also competed and came in a respectable third this time around. Princess Caroline, ever the proud mother, was at her radiant, dignified best.

Finally, for those of you who have been wondering, the Princely Wedding will be streamed live on the internet at the Princely Palace website for all of those who will not be covered by the TV coverage (or if you just prefer to watch on the PC). The wedding will be shown at this link here. Make a note of that. Unfortunately, at this point, no American media has said they will be showing the wedding live in the United States (a big bummer for many I know, but maybe someone will change their mind at the last minute). Several channels in Europe will be doing so, those of you in the "Old World" can check your local listings for that. I never really expected it to be shown live in the U.S. but I did hold out just a tiny bit of hope that after the ratings monster that the Royal Wedding in London was they might have decided to cover Monaco as well but, so far, no luck.


  1. I really like Charlene so I hope she gets the support she needs from Albert, Stephanie, and Caroline, which I'm sure she will. Also, I'm a little unsure-is the Princely wedding on Saturday at 5p, making it 11a here on the East Coast of the US? I don't want to miss it!

  2. Yes, the religious ceremony will be Saturday at 5pm, the civil ceremony on Friday at 5pm. Of course there will be coverage pretty much all day for all the before and after events.
