The “other” recently-married Royal couple – Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco – are celebrating their one-year anniversary this month. As part of the celebrations, they invited CBS This Morning for a chat in their castle.
The result is one of the most awkward interviews I’ve seen in a long time. The two seem so uncomfortable – even while answering easy questions such as “What’s it like to be married?”
Princess Charlene seems so lovely and a bit shy. She is clearly still trying to find her comfort level with being in the spotlight. But it’s the awkwardness between the couple that makes for some cringe-worthy moments.
At one point, while Princess Charlene stumbles while responding to “What’s it like to be a princess?” Prince Albert actually asks for a time-out. One question “What was it about her that drew you to Princess Charlene?” was deemed too personal by a palace rep.
Ummm…okay, isn’t the point of that entire interview supposed to be personal?
Something about these two doesn’t give an impression of a couple who’s only been married for a year.
This latest interview reminded me of their wedding day. Anyone else remember the video from their wedding? Princess Charlene may have been the saddest bride I’ve ever seen. Of course, it could have been that beautiful French song that brought on her tears. But it was his reaction to her reaction that got me.
