We so rarely take the time to check in on Princess Charlene. It seems like Cathy is sucking all the Princess oxygen out of the room all the time. We bet Charlene thinks she’s a bitch.

You’d never see any of those stuffy Windsors in something like this, now would you? Not that it’s showy, just that it’s showy for a princess. If an actress wore this on the red carpet (and hey, one of them did) we’d probably ding it for being a little on the boring or fussy side (and hey, we kind of did), but considering the limitations put on your average princess. this looks pretty chic and stylish.

They get big points for style, but huge deductions for bad body language. Their hands look like they hurt.
