Prince Albert's civil marriage to Charlene Wittstock in the Throne Room at the Prince's Palace in Monaco.
July 1 was the date set for the civil marriage ceremony between Prince Albert of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock, shadowed by reports of Charlene’s attempt to flee the country a few days ago. The marriage looked back on track when the couple attended a pre-wedding concert last night.
The key events in Monaco today: The bride showed up. She wore palazzo pants. She said Oui. She is now Her Serene Highness, Princess Charlene of Monaco.
Princess Caroline’s husband, Prince Ernst August of Hanover, brother-in-law of the groom, did not attend; there was a Runaway Husband, not a Runaway Bride.
The elaborate religious ceremony will take place on Saturday, July 2 at the Prince’s Palace. Check back at The Morton Report for full details and photos of that splendid event.
The civil marriage story is best told in pictures, so please head over to the gallery and visit Monaco on a sunny wedding day.
