what a devout Catholic. Barsi taught her so well...not. SHe did courtsey, but I don't think she kissed the ring. She was way too quick for that. ALbert only bowed but didn't kiss the ring either. I think she had work done on her lips again for the occasion. What a certified bimbo she is.
Well, not only doesn't she know French, but she also doesn't know the rules of her new religion. What made her think that she should come dressed up like a bride to meet the pope??? Dressing in the colour of innocence can not camouflage her dumbness. Or is she waving the white flag on her marriage. Or did Albert make her dress that way to point out that they have not consummed their marriage and he should be granted an annulment? White is considered a huge mistake. They say that reigning Catholic royalty is allowed to wear white, but Albert is not royalty and certainly not trashy... Guess whoever advised her wanted her to make a huge dressing mistake... I can hear pepole gasp in MC at that blunder. www.catholicnews.com/data/stories/cns/0903275.htm
May be she was confused with the confirmation? The dress reminds me of what an adult would wear for a confirmation. May be she wasn't really Catholic until today when the Pope confirmed her? Albert so desperately wants to be royal or may be in his delusions he actually thinks he is royal. The Pope doesn't look well. JMO
I don't know what possessed me to go look on the sugar boards but they are just gushing about her wearing white and some are saying the Pope must have approved it. where's the vomit icon.
The audience was only 15 minutes. For a head of state it seems pretty short, doesn't it? I mean - it is enough to say a few formal words, hello and good by and have some pics taken. No time for a real conversation at all.
Doen anyone know how long a private audience of a Head of State usually takes?
The article also says that Charlene is wearing white because she is a catholic regent. Did they get something wrong? She is no regent.
I find it just insolent !! to dress entirely white when meeting the Pope!
Many articles stress the fact that she was dressed entirely white. Looks like we are not the only who wonder...

Just saw pictures of the visit. WC is wearing WHITE!!! That ASSbert is really out of his mind...even his mother wore black for her visit with the Pope. Did the rule changed or these two fools just keep twisting every possible rule to satisfy their egos? One thing is for sure, they told her to keep her mouth shut throughout the visit and she did. She kept her lips so tight together it was hilarious to watch. ;D
Of course she is. The marriage is a business deal. And this is their way of saying it isn't consumated and barbie is still a virgin ::). Probably all a plot to make divorce easier later on? All the divorcal reasons are complied with: - unable to get pregnant: check; - marriage not consumated: check; - obviously unfit to perform marital duties, behaviour unfitting to position and position and status of husband, aka being a princess: huge check - irreconcilable differences: check.
"The Pope spoke French" Of course! There is a reason why the First lady is expected to speak the official language!
rofl and she didn't understand a word he was saying. The pope is very good in French actually. And Albert could have conversed with him in German too. And Italian. And trashy knew none of the languages....
LOL Bunte is living in a parallel world where the pope is actually wasting an hour on the 2 dimwits. They are asking if she is praying for a baby as she kept looking down and seemed pensive. Jeez these people still don't get that she is trying desperately to look demure and not immediately give away that she is dumb as bricks and doesn't understand a word of what people around her are saying. www.bunte.de/royals/charlne-von-monaco-betet-sie-fuer-ein-baby_aid_37895.html
It's a lot of lace, I'll say that. Lace overkill. Did she want people to really not miss the point? I think the Vatican just insulted every young girl and lady who take virginity as a badge of honour and would be entitled to wear white in his presence. Instead you have a woman with no grasp on humility and the first rule of claiming yourself a sinner first before claiming yourself a saint worthy of wearing the colour of purity. If this were any other religion, she'd be stoned or have shoes thrown at her. Tempting.
LOL Apparently under her lace coat she wore a lace dress, which shows when it opens in front. I don't think that she was playing on the virginity part. I think she looked at pics of other Royals with the pope and saw that they wore white so she decided to wear white too. SHe wanted to assume a position they do not have. They forced this on the vatican. What else would they have to respond then agreeing that she wore the right colour. You don't insult your guests afterwards. But I bet that any chance of the pope coming to MC is absolutely out of the window. Wrong colour, no kissing the ring, doesn't know the rules of the adopted religion, doesn't speak her adopted countries language. How do they think the pope is going to pray by her side in the cathedral in MC? She can't memorize anything complex and surely not an entire mass with the pope in attendance.
Although I don't disagree that she gazes downward because she is uncomfortable and is unable to hold an adult-level conversation in a "foreign" language, I have to say that she looks absolutely catatonic! Total Steppford Wife-drugged gazed look about her.
