Summer 2013. Charlene, Princess of Monaco, is the wife of Albert II, Prince of Monaco but, and no less important, a South African former Olympic swimmer.
Charlene was born in Zimbabwe but soon, her family moved to Transvaal, South Africa, where she started to swim. So well that she represented South Africa at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, with her team finishing fifth in the Women 4×100 m Medley.
Precisely, in 2006, Charlene met Prince Albert II at a swimming event in Monaco. Love at first sight? The truth is that she accompanied the prince on many of his official duties since then.
She retired from competitive swimming in 2007 and married the prince on 1 July 2011.
Now, they seem to be happy although she is still no pregnant. However, she misses swimming and this summer 2013, it has been frequent to see her alone swimming in the blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea, away from the luxury of the palace.
A great princess and sportswoman!
Have a nice day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere!
Princess Charlene best quotes:
I personally want to have children. I love children, and I simply can’t wait to have a family of my own.
Grace Kelly forged a link between Monaco and the movie world, and I would like to create a strong bond between Monaco and the fashion community.
Sport has given me drive and discipline. It also taught me to remain humble.
The people I mixed with in Monaco didn’t relate to my South African mentality or humor… Although I have met some wonderful people since I’ve been living in Monaco, I regard them all as acquaintances. I only have two people I consider friends here.
My foundation is based on helping children, and I hand-pick projects that are close to my heart and home.
