What you claimed was that no one gave King Gustav a hard time...you just can't get any further from the reality. I mean, really. A lot of Swedes want a republic, even more people want it after his escapades going public. Can't blame them.

And we pay these people with our tax money. They do not support themselves, we pay for their expensive cars. At least they could get their act together (and wear a goddamn condom, I mean jeez Albert).

didn't the swedish princess sign the prenup with that guy she married last year due to financial stuff? i remember reading that, how everything earned in that marriage and given must go to her. also, i dunno if the kids are included, but i remember there were issues with her parents/house cus her future husband had some medical issues, so they were worried about the heir "production".

no, i think more along the gifts they get and the houses/apartments they get:
Quote:
When Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, a guest at the royal wedding, married her former fitness instructor, Daniel Westling, last year, agreements were drawn up to define how the wealth would be divided should they separate.

Lawyers acting for the princess ensured that all property, inheritance and gifts belonging to the royal household remained in her name alone.

^ surely Daniel would get something though like money or a property cause I recall reading that they made him sell his businesses. I doubt they would toss him out on the street.

Princess Di got Kensington Palace.

of course he would, the reparation is probably written in the prenup too, it's just settled before anything for her to get everything they gain, and him probably getting House's property that's already owned by the royals.

Most royal pre-nups include clauses that give the royal spouse full custody because the last thing the royal house wants is to have the non-royal take the heirs and leave the country, for example.

well, since there are only few traditions of that kind left and only one of them is for royals, i guess you know what you're getting in and you're willing to pay the price for the good life you get with it and all the luxury in the world. i mean it's a logical thing to ask from a mother when it comes to royals, plus, i doubt anyone would forbid the mother from taking care of her kids and leave her on the street. even tho Windsor's had the full custody of the kids after Diana and Charles split, she travelled the world with the boys without much fuss (if my memory serves me well). i guess, if the wifey's smart enough, she'd get some extra clauses in the prenup regarding this just to be on the safe side, but all in all, i do think it's just an automatic thing for the royals that doesn't need to be fully practiced and is just a thing of a tradition.

Interesting piece from a SA newspaper. Btw they both look great at their wedding reception in SA.

The negativity surrounding the marriage of Charlene Wittstock and Prince Albert is awful – you should be ashamed of yourselves!

The wedding hadn’t even taken place and the world already doubted their union. Rumours of Charlene Wittstock frantically trying to book a plane ticket back to South Africa after a dress fitting in France, runaway bride rumours during the week leading up to the wedding and now rumours that she will stay in South Africa after their South African party are putting quite a dampener on a marriage that’s meant to be a fairytale.

Driving to work this morning I couldn’t help but feel nauseous at a headline on a street pole that read, “Charlene 5-1 she stays”. What I find disgusting about this is the fact that she’s not only our first ever European princess and former Olympic swimmer but also that this shows a really dirty side to our media.

Last week the world couldn’t get enough of them – and the publication in question in particular made a massive brouhaha about the wedding. To turn the story 180 degrees this week makes for some sensational and, frankly, crappy journalism.



If you were getting married into royalty and came from such a humble background then you may also feel overwhelmed by what’s expected of you, knowing that the entire globe is suddenly watching your every move.



She’s bound to be photographed everywhere she goes, while we all watch for her to make a mistake, look sad, happy, confused and any other emotion we can turn into a story.

The two of them make an endearing, albeit unorthodox, royal couple. Shots of her resting her head on his shoulder melted our hearts and should frankly have melted yours too.

So when you pick up a paper slating their marriage, bet some money on the duration of their marriage and whether she’ll return to Monaco or not, stop, think and consider that you may have a gambling problem because honestly who bets money on that in the first place?

If you’re not betting and are just hating then perhaps you should see a therapist and work on the big green monster living inside you. Just saying.

Royal duo shine at bling cocktail do

SUBASHNI NAIDOO, MONICA LAGANPARSADand BIÉNNE HUISMAN | 09 July, 2011 23:38
Princess Charlene of Monaco this week visited the Cotlands Hospice for children in Somerset West near Cape Town Picture: ESA ALEXANDER

A Charming Prince Albert had guests eating out of his hand during his week in Durban while his new bride was moved to tears in Cape Town at a charity do.


The prince and his wife, former Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock, cut short their honeymoon and yesterday returned to Monaco
.
The newlyweds had a rocky start to their marriage as rumours swirled that the prince had fathered a third child out of wedlock and Princess Charlene had tried to flee Monaco before the nuptials.
The couple hosted a private cocktail reception on Thursday at the Oyster Box Hotel. They flashed smiles, held hands and kissed before joining 400 guests who included Princess Anne, tycoon Patrice Motsepe and first ladies Thobeka Madiba and Nompumelelo Ntuli.
In a short address, the prince greeted everyone with a ''sawubona".
''He added African colloquialism to his speech, which brought light humour," said a guest. "The crowd loved that he was embracing the Zulu culture."
Wearing a black and bronze beaded " mermaid" dress, the princess thanked the city for its hospitality.
The bash was described as an opulent and flawless "red-carpet evening" filled with "bling and lots of diamonds". There was a large white floral display in the main conference room, with lollipop roses and silver candelabra.
Municipal speaker Logie Naidoo said it was "a regal affair", with the couple's wedding photographs on display.
However, the prince flew solo on Friday evening when he attended a dinner to celebrate the end of the International Olympic Committee conference, held at the Sibaya Casino.
The princess spent the day in Cape Town at charity engagements with businesswoman and close friend Bridgette Radebe.
She assumed co-patronage of The Giving Organisation with Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu.

At the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation in the impoverished Masiphumelele township, she was moved to tears as Fezeka Gxwayibeni, 20, recite d a poem about the harsh realities of township life.
"I watched your wedding. Sometimes, when you are like me, you wonder when will the fairy come and see you, and tell you that everything is going to be okay," read the poem.
Meetings with World Wildlife Fund officials and the Choc Childhood Cancer Foundation were cancelled at the last minute.

It's weird, I saw picture of the both of them at the IOCC. She was even wearing a black dress?

Monaco Royal Couple Sleep 16km Away From Each Other!
Saturday, July 09, 2011
City Press on Sunday are reporting that a hotel spokesperson Joanne Hayes confirmed that that the recently wedded Monaco royal couple slept in different bedrooms last night.

Princess Charlene stayed in the Buthelezi suite (R10 600 per night) while Prince Albert stayed at the Hilton Hotel in Durban in a bedroom 16km from his princess.

It was supposed to be their fairytale honeymoon in Africa, but it has found them straying even further apart.

Charlene Wittstock, now Princess Charlene of Monaco, arrived in Durban this week with Prince Albert to host a wedding reception for South African friends and dignatories who could not make it to Monaco.

The reception was at the swanky Oyster Box Hotel in Umhlanga Rocks, north of Durban.

It was widely reported that the royal couple would be staying in the presidential suite, at R25 000 per night.

This royal marriage has seemed doomed from the start. Shortly before the wedding last week, reports surfaced that Charlene had tried three times to flee the principality and return to South Africa.

Reports from France indicatyed Prince Albert had recently fathered a third child out of wedlock, despite the fact that he was engaged to Charlene since 2006.

Officials in Monaco confirmed that Albert was facing new paternity tests.

The couple attended a meeting of the International Olympic Committee in Durban and on Thursday night hosted a gala ceremony to celebrate their nuptials.

However, when they met President Jacob Zuma they arrived in the same car but left in two separate vehicles.

At Zuma’s residence, they met with the president for 30 minutes and then reappeared for pictures.

Zuma jokingly told Prince Albert he had not paid lobola, and said while he could not attend the wedding, the private meeting had more than made up for it.

When photographers urged the royal couple to kiss, it was another of those awkward moments – Charlene turned her head away and Prince Albert ended up giving her a peck on the cheek.

Pictures of Charlene taken this week showed an unhappy woman who rarely smiled. The only time she showed real delight was when Archbishop Desmond Tutu hugged her.

Charlene and Albert cut short their South African stay on Friday, citing urgent business in Monaco as their reason.
