On 23 June 2010, the Principality of Monaco in a statement announced the engagement of Prince Albert II and Charlene Wittstock. The Catholic wedding was held on 2 July 2011 at a ceremony outdoors, and the day before, they contracted civil marriage in the Throne Room of the Grimaldi Palace in Monaco.
Nearly three-year relationship and this has not always been easy. Charlene was an active woman and a great swimmer from South Africa and the strict rules of Monaco Palace and sophisticated way of life have been hard to accept: “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.” She said time ago. However, she is happy in Monaco now and her past problems have reinforced her relation with her husband. Definitely, she is now “the princess.”
“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.”
Then, in an interview to the magazine Vanity Fair, Princess Charlene of Monaco has just explained how she wishes to be a mom: “I wish motherhood very much but everything is in God’s hands,” and how misunderstandings form part of a distant pass.
Anyway, her love for children has been tangible since she arrived at Monaco. Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation is one of her main goals: “My foundation is about children who can become great adults, if we collectively show them the way, forward with strong sport values and solidarity.”
No doubt, Princess Charlene of Monaco will be a great mom.
Congratulations, Charlene. You deserve the best!
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
