There's been no kayaking, rodeos nor star-studded red carpets for this royal couple's first trip abroad. Instead "Good Morning America" reports that Prince Albert II and Charlene Wittstock's honeymoon has been the trip from hell.

Apparently, the Monegasque newlyweds, have spent their South African sojourn with fake smiles plastered to their faces. And Albert was ten miles apart from Charlene for one night and reports say the newlyweds are sleeping in separate beds.

These two just can't catch a break. Rumors began flying even before the wedding about Charlene's unhappiness with Albert, who continues to be dogged by paternity scandals. And last week, "GMA" wondered if the marriage wasn't cursed. The supposedly unhappy union, says the French press, is merely a plan to produce a legitimate heir for Prince Albert II, whose children (had out of wedlock) cannot inherit the throne.

But Princess Charlene's father tried to assure the press that the couple's love is true, saying that marrying his daughter to a prince is like "winning the World Cup."

Poor Charlene and Albert -- we really are rooting for you.
