Cheery Charlene in step with Albert

Charlene and Albert's happy dance

Happily ever after ... Princess Charlene and Prince Albert of Monaco enjoy the Olympics and a romantic waltz. 

Princess Charlene of Monaco last week looked as at home as ever on the sidelines of the pool as she cheered on South Africa at London's Aquatic Centre.

Come Friday night, the Olympian swimmer looked equally at ease in black tie glamour back on her adopted home turf in Monaco as she danced, taking a lead from Prince Albert - also an Olympian, though rather more familiar with the ice of the bobsleigh track than laps of a pool - at the principality's annual Red Cross Ball Gala. 

Dispelling rumours of depression and marriage problems, the South African native and her husband, who this July celebrated their one year anniversary, looked relaxed and happy together, Charlene sporting a gold sequinned dress with a flowing white skirt.

It was a fitting outfit to end the week - Charlene had watched her close friend, South African swimmer Chad de Clos clinch a gold medal, beating megawatt US swimmer Michael Phelps by 0.2 seconds in the 200m men's butterfly.

The couple watched the final and other races tensely - and were on their feet to applaud the swimmers' best efforts.

  • Maybe after serious cancelling,probably hypnotism & all other treatment this lady gave up and eventually submitted herself to this not to attractive prince whom he is womanizer not that women wants him because of his looks, he is Prince.
    Nature's cruelty surely regarding his looks & his parents good looking people.
    Poor lady, really sad case but life goes on I suppose.
    Good lesson all those pretty girls waiting for a Prince to live happily after.

    • Looks like this prince may be rich, but he turned out to be a frog.

    • Yeh I have trouble with my iPad selecting words for me too.
      But did laugh at cancelling ! No doubt the Xanax or Prozac are doing wonders for her.
      And yep what a sad tale, counselling or not.

    • I'm sure you do actually realise @happily ever after?; that Monaco isn't part of France, so technically Prince Albert can't possibly be a 'frog'...

      I was wondering however, what 'agent' or pathogen had led to the Aussie commentators on this article demonstrating 'toad' like ugliness - until; that is I remembered the sort of self-absorbed, self-opinionated, self-righteous and totally self-deluded piles of condescending food-processors that now makes up a major proportion of the Australian populace.

      Have a great day in your scum laden pond toads! :-)

    • Cream, by the looks and no doubt if she was sober she'd douse him in some. Let stories like this makes us realize how lucky we really are. Money isn't everything, is it?
