Charlene, not cut out for her princess costume? This is the idea that has been circulating after the South African’s slump, weakened “both physically and mentally” since her return to Europe. The former swimmer, who is being cared for in a specialised establishment outside Monaco, is far from being as unwell and “naive” as people think, according to those around her.
We should not underestimate her

Depicted as “ambitious,” the 43-year-old blonde “knew what she was getting into” when she married Albert II in 2011. “She’s not like Lady Diana,” it slips in as a comparison. “We should not underestimate her,” also warn the relatives who came to her defense.

Kate Middleton’s mother Carole, meanwhile, revealed which Christmas ornament was particularly pleasing to the royal toddlers. “I’m going to need a few of these little guys in December to hide around the house and make my grandkids laugh. As much as I love no-fuss decorations usually, you can’t be too serious at Christmas,” she shared on her Party Pieces business account. The “little guys” in question? Adorable elves found in Scandinavia. In Denmark, they are called “nisser” or “julenisser”, and they come to adorn homes all December. They are usually found at Søstrene Grene.
