According to tv sources this wedding has been made with one and only purpose, to have a descendant. They said in the Tv today that they have signed a prenuptial contract in wich she commits to remain married for at least 5 years and to give him a descendant, very romantic all of this...

I think it's easy to say she could have just canceled the wedding, but I don't think that was the case. It's not an easy decision for normal people to make, let alone someone who is being watched by millions of people around the world and has put tons of money/time/effort into this wedding. And supposedly she has few friends in Monaco and doesn't even speak French well so who could she have turned to for advice? I'm sure the palace probably pressured her to go through with it as well.

The Grimaldis don't seem to have much luck in romance. Wasn't Grace also really unhappy with her life but couldn't leave because the prenup said Rainier got to keep the kids in the event of a divorce?

They met 10 years ago, have been (if we believe their friends) dating for 5 years or so. She knows he has kid, everyone does, yes he is the player but I don't see the King of Sweden or Prince Phillip being grilled over that.


You MUST be joking. Half of the Swedish population want him to abdicate, it has been all over the news for months even in Denmark and he has been criticized very harshly.

Also in Finland. I don`t think there is any fairytale-likeness in royal wedding anyway. Their relationships seems to be messy everywhere, not to even mention they are always affairs of the whole country, not just two people.

But if the latest child of Albert is so small yet, that means he has been unfaithfull to Charlene. That must be devastating

The reality is that back in the days when Grace got married often the men did keep the kids in the event of a divorce (reference, Mad Men ) So I find it even more understandable, though still tragic, for her. And Grace barely knew Reiner, so I can imagine that she was caught up in her fairytale. Whereas Charlene I believe knows exactly who she is getting in Albert due to his very public reputation and the length of time they've been together... I doubt she has any fairytale illusions

Didn't Kate and William refused to get a pre-nup? I remember people saying how stupid they were not to get one in this day in age

they're quoting daily mail, so i don't think it's the most reliable source (also, i remember a talk about her signing it cus she had to give up on kids due to it and people were actually surprised). i don't think will or kate had much to say about this as it's probably a necessity, since after all they'e producing the actual heir to the throne. i'm thinking it's just windsor policy just like the one many other royal families have. id be surprised if it turns out they didn't sign anything.

Is the telegraph more reliable? I think you right, whether or nor they did sign a prenup Kate get move the kids out of the country. Other people can't either unless the get the court to gave them full custody

in this article they actually claim there wasn't a prenup from the spokesman of the house himself, while in that daily mail one they say an unidentified person confirmed it, so weird. if indeed the spokesman said there's no prenup (which i doubt he'd even comment on since it's a private thing), then there's no prenup, i guess.

What I meant is that people are giving on this board and some others a very hard time to Prince Albert while what he did (illegitimate children) is nowhere new in Royal Houses and at least he owned his mistakes unlike King Gustav. Also Prince Albert is doing an incredible job with Monaco. As for prenup I think it's normal that in those cases the royal houses take actions after all, their lives/legacy depend on those children.

Not in recent years in Scandinavia.
