Next week Albert will be on official visits to Africa and - NO CHARLENE. Charlene may hitch a plane ride so that she can do what she does best - SHOP. Seriously. Albert realized that Charlene is too much work and a big dead weight to take on these types of trips because Charlene really is DUMB AS A ROCK Charlene adds nothing on these trips because she is not a media draw as the tabloid press made Albert to believe when they weer convincing him to marry Charlene to bring glamour (as in Grace days) to Monaco. But most importantly, it takes too much time to teach this primitive intellect woman the basics and some appropriate conversation. As we have seen, they would have to write her cue cards because she will not and cannot memorize her lines.
