Monaco's Prince Albert Weds Charlene Wittstock!

Monaco's Prince Albert Weds Charlene Wittstock!

Prince Albert II and Charlene Wittstock wave on the balcony after tying the knot in a civil ceremony on Friday (July 1) in Monaco.

The couple wed in the Throne Room of the Palace – the 33-year-old former Olympic swimmer from South Africa will now be known as Charlene, Princess of Monaco!

Albert, 53, whose mother, Hollywood icon Grace Kelly, wed Prince Rainier III in 1956, will hold a more elaborate, religious ceremony and reception on Saturday.

“My role will be defined once I’m married,” Charlene previously told French newspaper JDD (via People). “During the last five years, I’ve learned palace protocol, habits, and customs of the principality. Today, I feel I’m ready.”

Congrats to the newlyweds!

  • Mlef

  • Liz

    Good for them.

  • Steph

    These rumors were untrue!! Happy for them!

  • ?

    if she’s ready why did she try to run away the last minute?

  • anon2


    The rumors were not untrue…they were confirmed by three sources in Monaco.

  • WoWza

    wow, these two couldn’t look any more less enthusiastic about their first marriage – By the looks of these pics, it looks like a business arrangement

  • Reality Check

    Poor girl, marrying a guy who is 20 years her senior and who has played around for so long that he’s nearing 60 and really getting on in years. Having to handle the fact that he has two children out of wedlock. I wonder how many women would have given him a second look if he weren’t a Prince. Look at the second picture and how forced her body language is – she looks like she can hardly stand kissing him and wants to pull away!

  • Steph

    These sources said also that there were pictures of her at the airport when she wanted to leave. Where are they? Anybody saw them. So stop to talk about things which have never been prouved.

  • laverdadduele

    I wish them all the best, but this doesn’t seem right. They don’t look like a couple in love at all!

  • Annie

    She’s gorgeous and I love Albert…go them!

  • Michelle

    Sean Connery with 80 years old is more attractive than Albert.

  • gray

    bad choice. that woman is shady!!!!!

  • star

    Absolutely ridiculous for them to get married and then go down on the street and start celebrating with complete strangers, nothing intimate. It is all for publicity, his popularity in his country is at the bottom low these days. What a fake couple!

  • longchamp

    that kiss unfortunately speaks volumes about how each of them feels about this union…

  • shimmy

    God, not 1 real smile from either of them. If anyone had any doubts about that running away story, this should put them to rest. These 2 are on track to be the new Charles n Diana. Wow, I feel so bad for her! Hope she can find her way out peacefully…
    All he wants her for is for a baby. Word is among monaco’s citizen that the prince didn’t seem enthusiastic about his marriage, as he’s always been averse twds marriage. Why not just let Princess Caroline and her kids inherit the throne then?

  • Orion

    Prince Albert looks so disgusting and has not one bit of a sympathy. I would never even let a man like him come near me. This marriage is totally fake, you can see it from their body language. Like Shimmy said, they are new Charles and Diana in the making. I think she was in love with him like Diana was with Charles, but saw the ugly details and tried to run off. Poor girl, it was too late. On the other hand, i saw pictures of William and Kate lately. They seem to be madly in love.

  • Orion

    Forgot one thing. How can beauty like Grace Kelly produce such an ugly looking man? Even Prince Rainier, his father, was decent looking man. Whenever i see picture of Prince Albert, i immediately think of some nasty pig.

  • Reality Check

    The Charles & Diana wedding kiss was different – she leaned to him and he wasn’t very eager to lean back. Here, Albert looks like the more eager of the two and Charlene looks like she’s going to throw up any moment now. Something is amiss.

  • Priscilla

    After seeing the pictures, I believe the runaway bride story is true. One report said that is was because a third illegitimate child has come to light. She might have all the money and jewels in the world, but her life is going to be miserable.

  • Vikious

    She’s a true beauty, very classy
