Princess Charlene of Monaco. From shyness to leadership

Princess Charlene of Monaco. From shyness to leadership
Ignacio Zara

Princess Charlene had bad times in Monaco. She didn’t adjust to the luxury of the palace. However, she is a great lady and now, one of the most elegant women around the world.

Time ago, Princess Charlene said: “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.” However, now, she has another perspective about her role in Monaco court. For instance, some weeks ago, dressed in a gorgeous indigo gown (see video), the princess caught the eye as she posed for photos, where she and fellow guests were on hand to celebrate the restoration project and patron sponsorship of L’Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beax-Arts in Paris.

It’s not the first time that she shines. Because the former shy Charlene has started this Fall with force. During the traditional picnic celebrated in Monaco, she eclipsed Caroline for once. Then, the good run continues.

In fact, she has lots of good points. Firstly, she is from Africa. This is interesting, very few princesses are from Africa, and her cosmopolitanism should help.

Furthermore, she is a great athlete. Thus, she has discipline. “Sport has given me drive and discipline. It also taught me to remain humble.” Humble is what a person needs to live reasonably among the luxury of the Monegasque court.

She is beautiful and friendly and she has important projects in mind: “I don’t want to be a princess who sits on the sidelines; I want to be present and actively involved. It’s a life with a purpose.” “And I would like to create a strong bond between Monaco and the fashion community.”

All she needs now, it’s to have a baby, because she wishes it: “I simply can’t wait to have a family of my own.”

Definitely, from shyness to leadership, from luxury to real life.
