On Saturday ... I wrote

"It was very interesting to see a rather portly looking Prince of Monaco who was accompanied by his companion, the former South African swimmer, Charlene Wittstock. Miss Wittstock may be the Prince's official girlfriend, but she's not a fiancee ... yet. About a year ago, I read an article about Charlene's future as the Princess of Monaco. Albert wanted to wait until Charlene learned French, as she would need to be fluent in the language as the wife of the Prince of Monaco. The King and Queen of Sweden may know something we don't about Miss Wittstock's future, which would explain Charlene's inclusion, although she sat behind Albert in the church, and was not seated at the head table.

Now that Charlene has been introduced to members of European royal families, I do see an engagement ring in her not-so-distant future. Perhaps, Victoria and Daniel's vows will inspire the Prince to get on one knee, propose and produce the diamond ring."

Four days ago. Today is the not-so-distant future!

I know, he IS getting portly. And some of his outfits aren't flattering, Saturday's wedding being a perfect example. Hate to be catty, but it looked like he was the wine steward at a nice restaurant. There's nothing wrong with not having a military uniform, he should just wear immaculate white-tie and decorations and he would look fine.

The future Princess of Monaco? I think she's pretty, and so far she seems to have kept herself out of the papers and blogs. I think it's a nice match.
