The French press are nothing, if not ruthless, to their celebrities and politicians, even those within the principality of Monaco. The latest and greatest goss going around town is that Charlene Wittstock
, soon to be Princess of Monaco when she marries Prince Albert on July 2, attempted to become a runaway bride.
French magazine L'Express
reported that Charlene was caught, by French Police under order of the Monaco Royal Police, at the Nice airport with a one way ticket to her hometown of South Africa. The story has been picked up by authoritative French newspapers who report that she was getting cold feet. The Daily Mail
suggests that she found out something about Albert's past that disturbed her. The crown prince of Monaco has admittedly fathered two children out of wedlock, so it's quite possible Charlene found out other things she didn't like about the prince. The Palace in Monaco denies all allegations, of course, and say the couple is happy and will be wed as scheduled.
What do you think, did Charlene get caught making a run for it, or is this all just idle chatter?
