These are some new photos of Prince Albert and Princess Charlene doing something charitable in Monaco yesterday. I don’t know what, and I don’t really care, honestly. It involved Charlene wearing a little black dress and posing with a child and some flowers. I’m still not loving her “I’m in a terrible marriage” bangs trauma, but ever since Charlene was “allowed” to do some public events on her own – plus go to Paris for Fashion Week – she’s been looking better. Not so druggy and zombie-like. Her face is actually showing emotion and she doesn’t look nauseous while standing next to her husband. VICTORY. Now Charlene just needs to get knocked up, right?
Charlene, Princess of Monaco has only been married to Albert II of Monaco for three months, but she already looks every inch the modern princess… and mother. The South African former swimmer, looked natural and relaxed at a recent charity event in Monte Carlo.
The Prince and Princess were attending the Monaco Humanitary Group Presentation yesterday, and when asked to pose for photos with a group of children, Charlene warmly chatted and joked with a pretty little girl before lifting her into her arms. The overwhelmed youngster looked unsure how to react, but Charlene took the whole situation in her stride, smiling straight at her little fan before turning to the cameras.
Monaco’s newest princess looked beautiful in a simple black dress with her trademark low bun and minimal accessories. Her husband proudly rested his hand on Charlene’s back as she held the child.
There is a lot of pressure on the 33-year-old to produce an heir for the House of Grimaldi.
Albert II’s two sisters Caroline and Stephanie have seven children between them. But the Prince’s two children, Jazmin Grace Grimaldi and Alexandre Coste, were born out-of-wedlock and are therefore ineligible for succession to the throne.
Adopting is therefore also not an option for the couple. Fifty-three-year-old Albert will also be keen to have a child as soon as possible.

I’m not Eyes for Lies or anything, but the feeling I keep getting from photos of Albert and Charlene together is that HE isn’t even into it. Like, obviously, Charlene feels the vom when she thinks about sharing a marital bed with him, but Albert isn’t even interested. He’d rather be on his yacht, boning cocktail waitresses or whatever. Besides, how is Charlene supposed to conceive when (as she admitted in a recent interview) it’s not even a matter of staying in the same bed – they aren’t even in the same home. Albert is staying at the palace, while Charlene stays at the royal country home, Roc Agel. Maybe the heir to the Grimaldi throne will be conceived in a lab. If so, good for them.
I’m including a photo of Albert and Charlene from last week, just because they look nice together and Charlene looks great in green.
