I agree. I don't want to sound like I'm attacking her or anything, she just doesn't seem to me like the sort of person who thinks it is really important what church she goes to. She's nominally a Protestant because that is what she was born into and since she's going to marry Prince Albert she will be a nominal Catholic. I'm not trying to say anything about her soul or spiritual standing -whatever but, like you said, she says she's a Christian and Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox, whatever -all Christians so I don't think she would bother much about which church she is officially a member of.

Yes, she's probably all these things - or none. The only group of people who may - or will - care about her religious affiliation are those Monégasques who themselves have a strong and vibrant faith and allegiance to Roman Catholicism. It would be interesting to see an opinion poll which might tell us what proportion of Monegasques are fully committed / lukewarm / nominal / don't care.

IMO the engagement time is too long.
A January wedding or Februray wedding would be nice and romantic. Plus they have to marry in the church it´s too cold outside.

Do you think God, if he/she exists, cares which club you belong to when you worship?

I think that Charlene will perhaps have deux little maids of honor for her weedding, Princess Alexandra of Hanovre and Camille Grimaldi.It will be fine for them because they are pretty

Because PA is the ruler of a smaller principality and is the ruler as he marries (I.e. Not the heir or heir of heir) does Charlene have more freedom in choosing dress and planning the wedding? Like less political/social/ royal pressure than say Kate Middleton of Victoria did to do it a 'certain' way?

Hope what I am asking makes sense?

I think she would have more pressure because she is marrying the current ruler.
However with Monaco being how it is, I doubt anyone minds what she wears.

Monaco has always been more independant than the other royals. I think they will do whatever PA wants to do (within reason).

That's what I was sort of thinking too. He might have a bit more freedom per say since he is ruler!

Where should I post this?

400.000 euros to broadcast PA and CW wedding? So, in Monaco you don´t make a move if it´s not for money! Of course the channels think it´s too high a price especially considering that some time earlier, a really big and important wedding will take place, that will be seen by millions and channels won´t kave to spend a penny!
(oh, is my translation right?)

He will probably donate the money to one of his foundations or use it to deflect the government security expenses. It's not like they need the money. Monaco's negotiating skills are why Monaco has no debt and the rest of the western world does. I wouldn't worry about the TV stations. They would not have bid that amount if they didn't think they would earn alot more.

Albert is expecting too much from his wedding. You yourself said it, another royal wedding will take place earlier, and they don't need to spend a penny!
Let's see how this develops...

This recent news is Monaco's PR failure. Maybe they are trying too hard?

Did anybody already ansewr the question, what will happen with the "outdoor" ceremony, if it rains???? (Sorry, in case this has been answered before). What is Plan B in this case?

And no, you never have any guarantee for a non-raining day, not even in Monaco (). Remember the rain at the wedding of Felipe and Letizia, it has not rained the last 22 years on their wedding day, and.... upppps, it was raining cats and dogs during the wedding ceremony.

The weedding of Letizia and Felipe was in May and we know that in the South, it is raining very often, I use to live in june and july at the coast ,it is summer, and it can be very heat, but it happens there are thunderstorms sometimes at the end of the day when it is too hot.Only things which can happen are winds ( called mistral) which are very strong and very dangerous for the hats of women,'they can fly'.In this season, the rain does'nt last longtimes.The weedding must begin at 17 hours,it is less hot that in the morning.It ends at 19 hours.They can know the times two or three days before, they can see what they can do, perhaps in in the churchs around.I don't know?But I would prefer a ceremony in a church than in open air.

I don't think is going to rain in that day. I mean, they can't be so unlucky. I would have like to see them get married in the church, too.

Stephane Bern the speaker of french public tv and who belongs to the comittee who works with the advisers of the palace said to day that the weedding will be broadcast on the tv public A2 or Fr3 and he will be the speaker like he was for the national fest on november 19th and Jeanclaude Narcy said to day that the weedding will be on the privacy Tv' the one'.Jerome Revon said that the civil ceremony will be broadcast but it will be very short because the ceremony is very shortHe said also that the civil ceremony will be on thursday june30th because there will be repetitions on the place of the palace the friday.I heard also Prince Albert saying that the civil weedding will be 2 days before the religious weedding in the interview on "classic radio" Bern said also that the invitations to the host people will be sent soon In these days. he says also that the weedding of Prince William and these of Prince Albert will be broadcast on the french tv.

I read that the backup plan for rain was to hold the wedding in the Grimaldi Forum. Maybe it can hold more than the cathedral. I am wondering if they want to have it outside so the old Monagasques can go. Also, it rained when PR and PG got married. I remember PG saying that the Monagasques believe rain is good luck.
