I think this is not meant to be a tent. The French word is voile which comes from Latin velum - literally a sail ....or a veil...

Guess the Canadian government who extended the invitation to Prince Willaim on the day his engagement was announced just didn't think to ask Monaco if they would be offended.

No other royals undertook official tours during Crown Princess Victoria's wedding last year, did they? And it's not like the Duke and Duchess have a very busy schedule, they don't do much anyway, in the way of royal duties...
July 1st is Canada Day which is one of the more important functions the Duke and Duchess will attend. The date is fixed and could never be changed just because the Prince of Monaco chose to get married the same weekend

This is not the first time that the British Royal Family (and other RF) slaps the Monegasque Royal family in the face. Most recently at the wedding of William and kate, they put Albert, a reigning monarch behind the deposed royal families of Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, and next to the Serbian Royal family. And I wouldn't be surprised if we see no British representation at this wedding, just as there was none at his parents. So this whole tour thing is just the icing on the cake, and shows where the BRF places foreign relations with it's peers.

The focus of the BRF is on their duties in the UK and The Commonwealth, which is as it should be. Continental events are not of major importance to the BRF or the British public.
In 1956 no reigning royalty attended the wedding. They had to make do with ex King Farouk and the Aga Khan.
The Queen was represented at Rainier's fuineral by the Duke of York and at Albert's enthronement by the Earl and Countess of Wessex. I would expect similar appropriate representation at next weekends wedding. I doubt if the Grimaldi family would feel slighted by The Queen sending one of her children to his wedding, much less should he feel slighted by the fact the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be on an official visit to a country that they may one day be King and Queen of.

None of it means anything. They will all get coverage, because it is celebrity, not for any other reason. If Charlene is a stunning bride, which I bet she is, her picture will be splashed everywhere. Kate will also catch eyes if her outfits are great. Other than that, no one will give much notice.

burnt, thanks so much for all the links you've provided, as I finally had time to catch up with this thread and noted some wonderful posts by you (& a deleted one by me, oh my! ).

Anyhow, the post about the 10,000 multi-colored roses from Ecuador gathered from 35 farms left me breathless, but the link you posted of the courtyard made me cry, I'm soooooooooooo looking forward to this wedding!!!!! I feel like singing!

After all the craziness that's been going on in the world the past two years -- flocks of birds falling dead from the sky, tons of fish washing up dead at different spots across the globe, BP oil spill (worst one ever & the catalyst), giant cracks & sinkholes appearing across the earth's surface, massive amounts of flooding, deadly tornados ruining rural areas & cities, extreme amounts of civil unrest across the globe, typhoon & Fukishima, flooding & quakes down Under, huge wildfires burning across the southwest, volcanic activity in Japan & Chile, nuclear plants in America at risk as I type by flooding in Nebraska, etc. etc. etc. -- FINALLY, there is something to cheer about, and be *happy* about, the wedding in Monaco in less than 1 week!!!!!! Ahhhhh, I simply cannot wait! I wish all of us here at TRF could get together & celebrate, but being online at the same time is the next best thing imho.

Here's to looking forward to chatting with you all before, after, and during the celebration. :)

ps: I too read about Albert perhaps buying Charlene a brand new tiara, and I'm over the moon, because I simply do not know what to expect, and that's exactly the way I like it. Surprise me, just as Viktoria & Daniel did....ahhh....

I'm not entirely sure if you are joking or not....but I think that William and Kate - as representatives of the Queen of Canada - scheduled their visit around Canada Day, which falls on July 1. That's not only in line with recent tradition, but considerate, respectful and appropriate.

ETA: This has pretty much already been said. But if it helps, in their recent interview with Hello! Charlene and Albert pretty much dismissed Kate and William as unimportant, so I doubt they care what the British couple are doing.

The Civil Ceremony is taking place in the Throne Room of the Palais, and Philippe Narmino is Monaco's Registrar.

After the ceremony, there will be a window appearance.
