Princess Charlene vacations without Albert, rumors of another Casiraghi pregnancy

I know a lot of you don’t care either way, but I’m still interested in poor Princess Charlene. These are new photos of Charlene in Portofino, Italy yesterday with what looks like a group of “friends”. Isn’t that interesting? First off, Charlene has “friends”!! Real friends. Friends that she vacations with. Secondly, Albert is nowhere to be seen. I can’t find any news about him this week either, so I guess he could be on vacation too, just not with his wife. Lots of married couples take separate vacations. But most married couples aren’t Albert and Charlene, so I do have to wonder.

I also have to wonder about the issue of line of succession in Monaco. It’s getting really crazy over there, and I’ll get to some good Casiraghi gossip in a moment. For now, we know Albert is able to impregnate women. He’s fathered multiple children by multiple women, but none of them can assume the Monaco throne. Which means that if Charlene doesn’t make with the babies soon, Albert will really have to begin grooming his other heirs, his sister Caroline and Caroline’s children. Caroline’s son Andrea just welcomed a son with Tatiana Santo Domingo in March of this year. There were some reports that Andrea and Tatiana got married before the birth, but I don’t think those reports panned out. Still, Andrea’s son Sacha is now the third in line to the Monaco throne.

And now there are rumors that 26-year-old Charlotte Casiraghi is pregnant too! She stepped out earlier this month looking kind of bumpy, and now everybody thinks that her 41-year-old boyfriend knocked her up. Which just goes to show you how much is riding on Charlene popping out a baby SOON. I can’t believe Albert allowed her to leave The Impregnation Dungeon.

    I find her so beautiful…

  2. DanaG says:

    Maybe she is pregnant and this is her reward? LOL I don’t think this marriage is going to last heir or no heir. Nice to see she still have friends and can go out.

  3. HappyMom says:

    My theory since their horrible wedding day, where she cried and looked miserable through out the ceremony and he looked completely annoyed with her, was that there would be no baby. She knows the only way to escape (without having to leave a baby behind) is for there to be NO baby. I think she’s secretly taking birth control pills or doing something to prevent pregnancy. She’s putting in her time with him. She’ll be out of there within 3 years-and immediately find a hot guy, stop looking so medicated, and get pregnant.

  4. Talie says:

    There were major rumors back when Charlotte was, like, 19 that she was pregnant by her high school sweetheart, but it turned out she just put on some weight. At least, that was the official explanation.

  5. Anna says:

    Omg she look really happy and very relaxed here – you can almost feel the weight is off her shoulder.

    I’m always interested in charlene stories so please bring it on.

    How trashy is the Prince Albert of Monaco and the whole family clan?

  6. lella says:

    Being fair, you cannot call a day off to Portofino a vacation, Portofino and Monaco are not that far away but pretty close, actually.

  7. CC says:

    What I find the most amusing is that considering how catholic they are, and the marriage thing that divorce isn’t an option unless they nullified the marriage, and of course, the why would be amply explored.

    Second, if Andrea isn’t married, his kid can’t be heir until he marries the mother, and that’s even just because the policy of retroactively legilitizing heirs once you’re married to the mother is the norm. Until Andrea is married to his son’s mother, his son is no more of an heir than Albert’s children.

  8. Ellen says:

    Isn’t it true though that Andrea’s child will only be an heir if Andrea and Tatiana get married? Illegitimate children can’t be in the line of succession, which is why Albert’s other kids are out of luck.

    I guess we’ll know that Charlene has called time on the whole baby-making contract when Andrea and Tatiana produce a marriage license and move back home to Monaco.

  9. Angie says:

    Charlene can easily get divorced if she is not happy with her marriage and I am sure the settlement will ensure she can live the same lifestyle.

    I find it odd that anyone would feel sorry for her. She is so boring

    • CC says:

      The funny part is: Charlotte and Albert CAN get divorced in civil proceedings, but the church marriage would stand, they’d still be married by the catholic church, and good ol’ Albert won’t be able to remarry by the church unless his marriage is annulled or Charlotte dies. So if they were to divorce, Albert would have no way to get “legitimate” heirs.

  10. My_Truth says:

    Poor Charlene my ass….she knew what she was getting into after what, 5 freakin years!? No sympathy here.

  11. Algernon says:

    I would swear that when Prince Rainier was alive there were stories that he favored Andrea and insisted on bringing him into official functions and even political meetings as a teenager so that he could observe and learn and that Rainier was basically grooming Andrea from a young age and treated him like the heir apparent, moreso than Albert. All those constitutional changes made at the end of Rainier’s life were made to benefit Andrea, ultimately. I mean, Rainier could have just as easily demanded Albert get married before he died and start producing legitimate heirs but he didn’t; Rainier always kind of acted like he was assuming Andrea would end up running Monaco. Anyway, it made me wonder when Albert up and got married after seeming to settle into confirmed-bachelordom if there wasn’t some truth to the stories that Rainier preferred Andrea and made no secret that he intended his grandson to run the place one day. Because Albert doesn’t need heirs, thanks to those changes in law, Caroline and Andrea are his heirs. Basically I don’t understand why he got married when he’s obviously not madly in love with Charlene and they’re not producing children. It sort of looks like he did it just to torture Charlene and annoy Caroline and Andrea.

    • mslewis says:

      None of that is true. When Rainier was alive, Andrea was too young to sit in on any of the government meetings. By the end of Rainier’s life Albert was already running things, at the request of Rainier. Rainier was very sick for a very long time and he made specific plans for taking care of all of his family, especially Stephanie and her children because he was worried about what Caroline would do since she hates Stephanie. At the moment, Caroline is next in line with Andrea after her.

      It really doesn’t matter who “rules” this little sh!t hole since all they need is to make sure the casino keeps making money and they keep everything pretty and safe for the rich people who move there for tax purposes. It really is an ugly little place.

    Of course she has actual friends. She had a very full life before she and Albert got together. She has many close athlete friends back in South Africa. I doubt that she has made many ‘new’ friends in recent years, but she has a whole lifetime’s worth of friends from her swimming days. On a different note, I really believed those attempted runaway bride stories that were circulating right before and after her wedding to Albert. I still think there was probably an element of truth to it. I wonder whether they’ve even actually had sex since getting married. I kind of image her being very passive aggressive and resentful toward Albert after giving in and going through with the marriage. I actually like the idea of her having a passionate affair on the side whilst refusing Albert any sex. Or maybe they’re totally happy and content…who knows!

    That family has always been a mess!!!

  14. Madriani's Girl says:

    Whoa, nelly! That gap-toothed crone next to her in the main pic is Exhibit A of why excessive dieting, smoking and tanning are huge no-nos. Look at her face and legs! I love her dress, though.

  15. Liberty says:

    My friends who live in the South of France say: yes, Charlotte is having a baby, but it is not her current man’s child. The father is a model and actor she is no longer seeing — Gaspard Ulliel.

  16. Karen says:

    Doesn’t matter when Alberts nieces and nephews have kids. As soon as Charlene is pregnant their kid is next in line. This isn’t first come first serve.

  17. Marion says:

    Charlene seems so funny to have lunch with :-/
    I can’t stand her “please-have-pity-for-me” look whenever there’s a picture of her taken.

    As for Charlotte,,I was a bit disappointed in her dating Gad Elmaleh and now she’s pregnant…

  18. Cody says:

    What makes u think they are friends – they could be trusted and approved workers that work for the family and she is relaxed because she is away from him and all the pressure

  19. Lucretia says:

    Keep the Charlene stories coming. There is a lot going on under the surface. She looks absolutely beautiful here.
    How about more stuff, even? What’s Princess Stephanie up to these days? Still traveling with the circus?

  20. M.M. says:

    Yes, keep covering Charlene. She always seems forlorn.

  21. taxi says:

    She’s holding a cigarette in 1 pic. Surprising for a

  22. mhjmc says:

    I think she looks beautiful but sad.

  23. junegorilla says:

    The saddest princess in the world.

  24. Pharce says:

    I adore royal stories of any kind. Bring them on!

  25. Ollie says:

    her face looks puffy…. could be pregnant ;-)

    She uses one of Albert´s jet, Portofino is just around the corner.

  26. MorganM says:

    Love the dress. The cut and color are simple and nice.

  27. Amy says:

    I do think the Charlotte/Gad Elmaleh pairing is very bizarre and I don’t see them lasting, but I don’t really care that much. If she is pregnant good for her and Gad I guess?

    I am a huge fan of Charlotte’s boyfriend Gad Elmaleh, he is one of my fave comedians ever. Jerry Seinfeld likes him too, if the latest episode of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” is any indication. You can look up the link on Youtube as Jerry and Gad drive around the streets of Manhattan in an old French car, the 2CV which keeps stalling in NYC traffic, it’s pretty funny:

  28. Nikki says:

    Jeez, don’t they have birth control in that family?!

  29. kristiner says:

    I don’t get Charlene. She dated that bald, fugly troll for years then accepted his proposal so WHY are we to feel bad for her?

    She was obviously phucking him back then. Albert wouldn’t keep a woman around like that unless she was spreading it anytime he wanted. So she’s already had a taste and knew what she was getting into.

    Then she’s all runaway bride and weepy at the wedding? That’s so false and ridiculous.

  30. Nibbi says:

    Nobody else thinks she looks sorta puffy or ill or at least over-injected here?

    I think generally she’s beautiful but the puffiness is getting outta hand. Hope she’s okay.
