But will marriage to this ‘nice guy’ and a new baby be enough to keep Charlene sane – or make her happy – in Monaco?

She competed in the 2000 Sydney Olympics where she swam for South Africa (she came in 5th in the women's 4x100 medley).

Charlene met Prince Albert in 2000 at the Mare Nostrum swimming meet.
