Prince Albert & Princess Charlene: Monaco Royal Wedding!

Prince Albert weds Princess Charlene in a religious ceremony at the Prince’s Palace on Saturday (July 2) in Monaco.

The couple officially tied the knot the day before in a civil ceremony.

Charlene, 33, a former Olympic swimmer from South Africa, wore a Giorgio Armani Privé gown made from off-white silk duchesse with a long train, while Albert, 53, donned a cream-colored summer uniform of the palace guards.

The televised wedding, held inside the palace’s courtyard, included a performance by singer Andrea Bocelli before the couple rode off in a convertible Lexus to greet well-wishers lining the streets.

    Body language speaks volume for this couple. They’re not marrying out of love…and it shows.

  • Jude

    It was a beautiful wedding!
    More emotional that Kate & William..

  • marsianka

    oh man, i wish i lived in such a nice small country like Monaco!…

  • Tamara

    I was curious about her, so I watched an interview with she and Albert on youtube. She is rather bland. Maybe she is just shy, but she conveyed having no personality and was very uncomfortable being interviewed. I am surprised she chose a life like this.

  • how much do braces cost

    Lovely and incredible dress! WOW!!!

  • how much do braces cost


  • andrea

    kate and william are better, this couple doesn’t look happy or in love.

  • Mlef

    Andrea Bocelli…lol

    As usually, money but no taste…

    If I was rich, I would definitly be on my knees for Nick Cave, Slash, Kings of Leon, and I would pray for see back together Noir Desir and the Guns & Roses….

    I just realize that I was believing for a minute that I was able to as for that…

  • Mlef

    * ask


    Isn’t the rightful successor to the Monaco municipality throne
    Alexandre Coste?
    His son with the lady from Togo.
    It’s always male lineage. So his first born son is Alexandre Coste.
    Btw, his father Prince Rainier, was more handsome. And his mother a real beauty. As is his niece Charlotte. Albert is the runt of the brood. Though Stephanie is way too masculine.

  • !

    Did she get her passport back? LOL.

  • shimmy


    looool u would have gun n roses at a royal wedding??? and you think opera is classless??? Yep you’ve showed the extent of your non-existent taste

  • Yas

    Exactly… did she get her damn Passport back? Poor boo.

  • Sweet Pea

    She does not look thrilled to be going through with this wedding. She should have tried a little harder to runaway-bride this wedding. I can hardly believe that she had her passport confiscated so she couldn’t leave the country.

  • Mlef


    How stupid and consensual you are.

    A real wedding, is an event when you can do what you want to do, and not pretend listening to fake opera and pretend being someone else.

    F@cking morron.

  • Annie

    I love wedding dresses like this – clean geometric lines rather than either 1)frou-frou or 2)too casual for a wedding. It looks more timeless.

  • kora


    ummm you seem to be the moron here, obviously if they had boccelli there it’s because they wanted to. you forget that the wedding wasn’t done w your poor taste in mind but theirs!

  • no

    Once a cheater always a cheater…what about his out of wedlock children?


    I think he’s marrying her out of duty and to produce heirs. The dress is chic and amazing much better than Kate’s old fashioned one. I hope she finds happiness in her new role and surrounds herself with good loyal people to guide her in her duites. Good luck to her, I think she’ll need it.

  • Monaco Gossip site

    Interesting gossip site about Monaco if you’re interested.

  • Jackella

    The poor girl looks suicidal.

  • aquarius64

    @ Reality Check Alexandre Coste was born out of wedlock. Because of that he cannot inherit the throne under the sucession laws in Monaco. Until he has a son with his new princess (conceived and born in wedlock), Princess Caroline’s oldest son (I forgot his name) is the heir.

  • sea

    Stunning dress. She was very chic and elegant, more than Kate (in terms of look).
    He is no longer a Prince Charming but…. ok.
    No comment about their private life :)

  • aquarius64

    Correction on the Monaguese sucession – until he has a kid, Albert’s sister Caroline is heiress presumptive to the throne. I also fould out on Wikipedia that if Albert had married Nicole Coste Alexandre would have become heir apparent to the throne of Monaco.

  • Mikado

    @Jackella: I agree with you.
    Her dress is beautiful, but her eyes are desperate.

  • Irena

    Apparently they confiscated her passport because she tried leaving after she realized she didn’t want to marry him. Poor thing and all this sounds medieval

  • Liz

    @REALITY CHECK: Nope, it must be legitimate children.

  • Frozoid

    @MZ SASS: He already has two out of wedlock children. He’s a weird dude. Word is she panicked at the last minute.

  • Journalist

    The whole wedding was a business arranged farce. The big story is now starting to leak out.

    Prince Albert officials confirm he will take Paternity test after the wedding.

  • lovśka jelena new photos !!

  • NO
  • JJ44

    REALITY CHECK….you are correct except that the male heir has to be a LEGITIMATE child of the prince’s marriage. Many, many kings and princes in past history have had illegitimate sons who were not allowed to sucede them to the throne…

  • Colleen

    I only saw the kissing part of the wedding and it was SO awkward. He looked really glum and grumpy while she tried this nervous smile but she couldn’t even pretend for more than a few seconds. Poor thing, she’s about as happy with this marriage as Diana was in hers.

  • Orion

    Happy weddings look very different. The Prince Albert smiled sometimes, but his smiles did’t reach his eyes. Charlene was very thoughtful during the ceremony. Poor poor girl.

  • Use Your Illusion

    Yeah, Andrea Boccelli is great
    But Guns n’ Roses are legendary too.
    Hard rock packing a lot of punch.
    Blue-bloods love them.
    As for the hypocrisy that an heir isn’t recognized if he’s not legitimate, well, that manmade stipulation should be changed.
    God recognizes all humans as equal. There’s good & evil in all.

  • JL

    Hope this works out for her sake.

  • Jaye

    I wouldn’t think this was a love match; at least on his part. He’s waited until he had to get married to have a legitimate heir. He’s sown all the wild oats that he has and had previously shown no prior inclination to be married. Now that he’s past his prime and looking sub-par, he’s decided to take himself off the market. I know females everywhere are wailing and gnashing their teeth. lol
    He produced at least 2 children out of wedlock. I believe he has acknowledged the children and they bear his last name and are citizens regardless of where they were born or who their mothers are. However, neither of the children are entitled to inherit unless he marries one of their mothers. In other words, the child could have been legitimatized if he, Albert, had married the mother at any time AFTER the child was born. So now his hope, I guess, is to have a legitimate heir from this marriage. His sister, Caroline, will inherit the throne if he doesn’t produce a legitimate heir under Monagesque Law.
    She really does look lovely in that dress.

  • Kat

    Monaco is not a country.


    The right heir to the throne should be his first born child, PERIOD!
    Isn’t that his daughter Jazmin Grace Grimaldi!
    It’s ridiculous to enforce such antiquated medieval traditions.
    Jolie & Pitt aren’t legally married, so technically does that mean they’re children are stigmatized??!!

  • Nelle

    That so pathetic some comments ! PERFECT this bride! Class and chic! Maybe she has an air Hautin or cold but I think it’s in his nature we see eventually overwhelmed by emotion and modesty of Albert the left “stunned” before the tears of his wife! I see only love in all this then stop the unnecessary comments! It’s beautiful I’m excited for them! As for the comparison with kate that has nothing to do! It is therefore a more mature couple love does not show the same way to this age and they are not princes and princesses of fame!

  • naomi

    @Lina: Seriously, you took the time to click the post and make a comment. My guess is you care, loser.

  • diana

    Gorgeous & Stunning! Charlene is more pretty than Kate Middleton.

  • noeline

    Prince Albert and Princess Charlene were stunning. Loved the wedding. Charlene you made us proud

  • not good

    How old is she? 33? She looks like 40 or more. Check the face, wrinkles around her eyes and on cheeks. She looks older and sad and not in love. So it is nothing to compare with William and Kate. Their marriage was about and because of love. This marriage is fake. End is very close.
