The Biggest Celebrity Wedding on the Côte d'Azur!
HSH Prince Albert II , Sovereign Prince of Monaco, Marquis des Baux, has this week announced his engagement to long time partner, former South African Olympic swimmer, Charlene Wittstock. No date has been officially set for the big day bit it will certainly take some organising!
Albert Alexandre Louis Pierre Grimaldi, or Prince Albert to you and me, acceded to the throne in the Principality following the death of his father, Prince Rainier III in 2005. His mother is of course the beloved late Grace Kelly.
20 years his junior, Ms. Wittstock will be only too aware of the Prince's reputation as that of confirmed bachelor and playboy and the fact that he already has two children outside of wedlock, but will certainly be accepted by the Monegasques as one of their own, especially considering the months of speculation leading up to this announcement.
