      Yes, @Anonymous!
      I am fully convinced that the comments from us bloggers have been a turning point for Charlene's back to blonde decision.
      Ok, ok, I'm being partial, that's also my hair shade but on long hair( please, Anonymous, don' t scold me or my ego would get deeply hurt).

      Oh, I forgot to mention her classic timeless beautiful BLACK combo.
      I confess i would have loved a snug sheath knee length (with sheer black panels) dress but it would not have been appropriate for this occasion, of course.

    6. I'm wondering about the women here. Do you keep your hair colour the same every year, year after year? I have just went from blond to dark, for how long time will tell, but it's not gonna be for ever ;)

    7. Anonymous27/9/23 22:36

      Louise, I have been a forever blonde and my hair colour is always the same. But I have utmost respect for people like you, or Charlene, who like to shake things up. I think Charlene has already had a lot of hairstyles that actually suit her. I didn't dislike the brown either. I very much liked her high blonde pixie cut. Damsel Dragonfly

    Asymmetry can be both interesting and elegant but in this particular case I find it odd and unattractive.

    1. Me too!

    2. Me too. Because it doesn´t look like a design idea but rather like she rolled up one sleeve because it bothered her. I do that when it rubs against a mosquito bite. Also, I agree with Tara below. This "design" isn`t worth $1790. Ridiculous. Actually, I remember my mother once came up with a similar "design" with a few random seams placed in an old top of hers gathering it up a bit in various places. It looked good and original, but the reason was to hide a few tiny stains in the folds.

      @Ladyofthemanor: That was my first impression too. It almost looks like a missing body part. :(

      I think you are insinuating that Princess Charlenee doesn’t speak French.
      Language experts say that around 90 percent of ADULT students have problems with a second language and less than 10 percent become fluent.
      I’m in the 90% group. Learning a second language has been a heavy burden on my back for many years and I still have problems.
      Before you start pointing the finger at Charlene, have a go at learning, for example, Afrikaans as a foreign language (otherwise known as Cape Dutch).
      It is spoken by about 60% of the white population in South Africa, 6 in 1 persons or about 3 million of the white population.
      You might then understand the challenge confronting adult students, like me and perhaps Princess Charlene.

      I can't t realize how you state as a fact that Charlene does not speak French or has a restricted knowledge of this language given that she lives and moves in a world you will never have access to.
      Anyway, even if this were true, either she knows how to use it well on her official engagements and is so correct as to not use a translator every step of the way like you do( which would be ridiculous, just like you do in your commentaries).
      Yes, I have my own certainties just like you .
      I know for sure that you do not know either English or French not to mention all the other languages you change in your commentaries and that you depend enterely on your translator.
      I would spend my time seriously studying these languages- and German as well-, if I were you.
      I am totally sure about your lack of knowledge as far as English and French are concerned just like you are so sure that Charlene has a restricted knowledge of French.
      Moreover, who knows, maybe these elderly people can speak English better than you will ever can!
      I myself speak French for my job sometimes but I do not reckon it important to give you or others proof thereof on this site.
      Re: Charlene's hair.
      You see, @Anonymous, a hairstylist knows what kind of hair texture he / she is working on and Charlene surely has very good hair structure, otherwise I doubt he/ she would have never ventured to operate this transiton to platinum blonde.
      Also, I am pretty sure that you do not know anything about the process involved in getting a platinum shade plus the products used during and after the treatment.
      Finally, re: this black top on Charlene which seems to be so mindblowing to you.
      Ok, you can just say that you do not like it ONCE so you would spare a lot of energies creating your incredibile amount of funny nicks and becoming sooo boring!
      Why wasting your time given- I am sure about it too- that this top is something beyond your reach in every aspect?
      You do not need to prove over and over again that your fashion knowledge is very moot and truly restricted.
      It' s pretty clear already.

    5. She will have picked up some French and likely has some passive understanding. Actively, however, she really doesn´t use French much, which is proof that she doesn´t feel comfortable speaking. If she was comfortable, she´d use it. I heard her speak French a little bit, but it was not great, and read off a script. I personally find that sad. I understand that language acquisition doesn´t come easily to everyone, but it is possible to learn, especially after so many years living in a French-speaking country. To me, it is a matter of interest. If you take an interest, you´ll learn. If you don´t, you won´t. It doesn´t make Charlene a bad person. She is kind, she is warm, she is friendly. Just not interested. I think she misses out on a deeper understanding of her partner in which his native language plays a big role as it so closely related to culture, heritage, mentality and identity. I think it also results in not ever feeling truly at home. And I think it makes it harder to represent the people and thus fulfilling her role.

      2) Since you have a soft spot for gossip, I suggest (again!) you work as a columnist for the gutter press.
      I know, the stakes are high but I am sure that you are talented and with a strong motivation, which is of utter importance to fulfil both tasks sooo successfully.

    Charlene is a very beautiful woman and looks good no matter what haircolor she chooses. I kinda miss the brown shade because it really made her blue eyes pop. I'm glad she hasn't returned to the platinum shade as this softer color is so marvelous for her. As for her sweater--sorry, didn't like the first time and still don't. Sorry, it just doesn't seem right--it is too off-balanced . Of course, Charlene looks gorgeous and what a wonderful event! That last photo shows what a marvelous time she and the seniors had together.


  34. Love the hair and I'm surprised how the blonde actually carries the brown outfit. The cashmere must be very comfortable for an occasion that requires bending and moving without looking rumpled. Good for you, Charlene. Jy is pragtig!

    I like asymmetry but not this one and not in this fabric. To me her hair may stay like this. I prefer this type of blond than the platina blond. About the fact she is speaking French or not. Normally since the time she lives in Monaco, she should be able to have a normal conversation with older people. Generally with old people you don't have difficult discussions, unless there are scientists or other highly educated people among them. Rose

  41. Re: Princess Charlene and learning a foreign language as an ADULT student.
    Speaking from personal experience (a cross on my back) of almost 40 years as an adult student trying to fluently speak a foreign language and if Charlene hasn’t arrived at the fluency level maybe she is having the same problem that I had.
    With oral expression, one gets blocked from the fear of making mistakes and being at the amusement of others. And I can assure you that it hurts.
    It took a long time before a teacher identified this as one of my problems and convinced me to speak, even with mistakes. She told me not to worry and if my mistakes made people laugh, so let it be. And I can assure you that some of them fall about laughing at times.
    IF Charlene is not speaking fluently and IF she spoke bad French and made mistakes, it would be like fodder for the media.
    She will benefit from her children growing up and learning French.
    Kids love to help their mum.
    Adult learners of a foreign language need support, not criticism.
    Please, try learning a foreign language as an adult student yourself before you start pointing the finger at others.
    Hopefully, you’ll be in the 5% who succeed to a fluency level.
    Why not try Afrikaans which would help you if you ever visit the beautiful country of South Africa.

    1. P. the original28/9/23 09:30

      Dear @ Deadeggs,
      I hear you.
      Personally, I think that what you described in your comment mostly stems from a structural difference between English- a Germanic language- and French - a neo latin language (same would have happened with Spanish/ Portuguese somehow).
      I needed to learn Norwegian and Danish as an adult for my job and it was pretty challenging for me as well, even though I have always been able to pick up foreign language easily.
      On the other hand, differences within languages belonging to the same Germanic group should also be taken into consideration.
      Now I'm speaking from my personal experience.
      What I have realized so far is that a Norwegian and a Swedish can understand each other quite well but a Swedish/ Norwegian and a Dane have to cope with mutual misunderstandings.
      That' s not surprising, after all, as Danish is structurally and phonetically different from both Norwegian and Swedish.
      When speaking Swedish, you have to put the stress on intonation, for example.
      It depends on the element/s you want to emphasize when you interact with other people.
      How can this happen given that they all are Germanic languages?
      It dates back to all the structural/ phonetical changes occured within the same bunch of Germanic languages over the centuries , to peoples' and tribes' migrations and their mingling with other languages spoken by other peoples and tribes living on adjacent territories and also far away from their homeland.
      If you have a look at written or happen to listen to a Finnish, you' ll feel puzzled because It is even more challenging , I'd say there is a good mix in it!
      That' s why Pss Mary found Danish so challenging to learn at least when she first entered the Danish Royal Court despite the fact that she already spoke English- her mother tongue- , a Germanic language-
      I bet you would pick up Norwegian quite quickly as it is the most conservative language among other Germanic languages-,namely it retained most of the features of the original old Germanic prototype and is more similar to English for many reasons.
      English Is an insular language and developed quite differently, that' why It has elements of its own not to be found in other Germanic languages.
      Anyway, please, don' t be afraid to speak French in public.
      The more you speak, the less you''ll make mistakes.
      Don' t worry about what other people say.
      When I first landed in Arlanda Airport in Sweden some time ago, I felt as a UFO coming from Mars and I already started from a good level as far as a few Germanic languages are concerned!
      English is perfectly known and spoken in Sweden too but I still needed to learn Swedish for some professional and practical reasons.
      Little by little, one can learn anything

    To P.the original
    You are quite right when saying that Danish, Norwegian and Swedish belong to the Germanic language group, but Finnish is different because it is NOT a Germanic language. Finnish language belongs to the Fenno-Ugrian language group with Estonian as the nearest language (if I remember it correctly).
    But back to Monaco: I remember Princess Grace having once said that she only learned French properly after Caroline and Albert started school. So we still have to wait a little what happens with Charlene.

      @Anonymous as Margot now

      I never said in my previous comments that Finnish is a Germanic language..
      I said it is a mix (I know what I am talking about).
      I am sure you are not a Finnish native speaker either.
      You need to study if you want to know and speak languages well ,not just using a translator (same goes for German, which I clearly perceive you know nothing of) and concoct nationalities which have nothing to do with you.
      You know, a good education as well as language practice in real life are the very base of it all.
      Your Google researches- also as far as languages origins and features are concerned-will never substitute for a quality schooling.
      You should take into account that I have to practice a handful of languages on a daily basis speaking to real native speakers, which I am sure is something unknown to you.
      I find it almost ridiculous to speak to you in German or Spanish or other languages given you change idioms just out of a sort of childish fun and not out of a real and effective knowledge.
      You are not a German or a Spanish native speaker either.
      Hope you' 'll get the sense of my comment.
