Princess Charlene stepped out in Monaco again with Albert & their twins

Two weekends ago, Princess Charlene made her first public appearance in months. She attended a racing event in Monaco with Prince Albert and their kids. She looked sad and unhappy. She debuted her platinum pixie cut there and I thought it was cute. Well, Charlene made another public appearance on Saturday, May 7th. Charlene, Albert and their kids attended the Saint Devote Rugby Tournament for kids. The event is actually sponsored by Charlene’s foundation, so this is technically “her” event.

Charlene honestly seemed a little bit happier this weekend? She looked so, so sad two weekends ago, but she seems happiest around children. I think it’s notable that her kids, Gabriella and Jacques, seem sort of fine? They’re fine with both mom and dad. And the little rugby players seemed to brighten Charlene’s mood. Now, she still looks like she wants to vomit whenever she has to stand close to Albert or acknowledge him in any way.

Her dress in these photos is Akris. Pretty. Her hair looked cuter two weekends ago though!

    She does look less miserable and that hairdo is really working for her. I’m hopeful that she’s seeing a therapist and on meds IF needed. That she’s doing things she enjoys as far as hobbies (or at least looking into finding hobbies) and is enjoying her children.

      I agree that she still looks extremely unhappy. I don’t think she wants to be with Albert as she never did once the wedding started taking shape. The fact that his goons were able to abduct her in France was a clear indication she doesn’t want to be with him. I don’t blame her. No one would want to be with this controlling, unfaithful, abusive and narcissistic monster. Albert is the WORST type of man and husband. He never intends on allowing Charlene her freedom with her children. Narcissistic POS.

    It looks like she can’t move the upper part of her face in these photos. Only her mouth moves. Maybe she has resting sad face and too much Botox? At least she looks healthy, and, hopefully is doing okay.

    • Lemons says:

      Yeah, I honestly feel like half of the issue is bad cosmetic work. Her face has just been too worked on in the past several years. Like…it seems like she has sad eyes, but at the same time, I’m not able to read her face at all. Uncanny valley…

    I am loving her hair!!

    It’s hard to tell with the Botox (no shade!) but I wonder if she still suffers any physical pain like from the ENT stuff? When I had chronic pain, I thought I was masking really well but I still looked really tense and uncomfortable in any resting/background pics.

      SAS that is a good point. When I have a migraine I try to mask my misery but you can’t hide it in the eyes. She does look a bit happier. I hope she has found things that make her happy. I also believe her husband is not one of those things.

    She still looks really tense but she does seem to look healthier than when she was in South Africa. I hope she continues to improve.

    She does look less miserable though I wouldn’t say she looks happy here but more resigned. Also the kids look annoyed and bored so I’m guessing maybe they didn’t want to be there which I give a pass since they are young. I’d be bored too watching kids play rugby at that age lol. I feel bad for Jacques as I have no hope for him as he gets older, he will be subject to the Monaco curse too. Also I still find it messed up how Monaco still favors male primogeniture. I get it with Albert (Princess Caroline is older than him) but Princess Gabriella was born first and Jacques is still the heir. I’m wondering what he would have done if he didn’t have a legitimate male heir.

    She just radiates misery. And her body language with Albert makes me think it’s him that’s the problem. I looked like this in photographs with my ex-husband even before I realized I needed to end my marriage. I wish her the best.

    I’m going to play devil’s advocate for a bit.
    Yep she looks unhappy standing next to Albert, but as they say “any old port in a storm” so I think that even though she likely can’t stand him (projection end) he is still the most familiar thing she has out in public and so he represents safety (I hope) and security. If even an eighth of the stories are true about how the citizens feel about her then I would absolutely stay close to the one person I am familiar with even if I couldn’t stand him. That’s just my take.
    She does look slightly healthier and I would say that if she’s had as many surgeries as posted then it’s gonna take her face quite a while to settle back, maybe she had a small facelift to help put things back together (in a manner of speaking) or Botox as well. If she suffers headaches from all of the procedures that is supposed to help
    Those are just MY thoughts
    Love her hair and I would like to see it all spiked up. She can certainly carry it off

    Her hair is still cute. I think the hair cut suffers with the collar silhouette she’s wearing. Like from the neck up I love her hair. Take in the whole picture and it’s just not right. Maybe a simpler collar, or if this collar laid flatter or something.

    Some EU gossip magazine in France named Voici, reports that Charlene entered a ‘difficult contract’ of €12.000.000 per year to keep up appearances. She gets to live Gent.

    They say she’s gonna go back in ‘hiding’ soon. This sighting is temporary.
    All the gossip sites in EU are running with this story.

    • Call_Me_Al says:

      That’s interesting, and I believe it. I honestly don’t know why Albert even cares.

    I love that top photo with the sunglasses. Like the whole family decided to dork out and wear shades together to be funny, and Dad looks like the biggest dork of all, which is endearing, because that’s half the job of being Dad.
