I read somewhere that president Zuma , president of South Africa, is invited because Charlene Wittstock is native of South Africa. Mr Zuma is polygam, he has 8 wifes, I hope he will not bring them all together!

Lol, well if that's the way it is done in his country, culture, religion, then I can't fault the man, he's living the way he was raised to do so.

Bring all 8 wives, if he leaves one(s) home, the others may get jealous.

HAPPY EASTER WEEKEND, EVERYONE, ENJOY!!!!

I think that was only because Albert knew that the announcement of the engagement was imminent...and her contacted the Royal Court of Sweden in advance to let them know that, I read in Paris Match.

I don't think that is true in the case of C-P...at least I hope not.

I think that if CP would ask to Prince Albert and Charlene if he could be accompagnied by his girlfriend, the couple would say yes, but I think King Carl Gustav and queen Sonia would not be agreed. Does the prince attend the wedding of William and Kate?

Zuma played it safe when visiting the UK and at least officially only brought 1 of his wives to the state dinner. Maybe he has them on a rotation schedule for events such as this, lol.

*lolol* - thanks for that thought :-))

Anyway, I've just subscribed to Monaco Matin's Facebook page because it will come in handy for the wedding coverage:

Monaco-Matin | Facebook

Monaco-Matin is one of the local papers of Nice-Matin.

Is there any truth to Charlene getting her own anthem?

According to other websites and the French newspaper, Nice-Matin, (sorry no link yet) Charlene Wittstock, will soon have her own anthem. The musical piece is said to have been composed by Jean-Christophe Aurnague the, “…organist of the Church of the Sacred Heart.”


I have never heard of a Consort getting their own musical theme. Not even HSH Albert has HIS own anthem, but he does reprensent himself with the anthem of the "principauté" . Why would she have her own when other members of the family have don't? Not even Grace of Monaco - Is this normal?

Can someone elude me to why? And please don't give me "why not"

I remember when Sophie married Edward that there was a fanfare written for the occasion - I seem to remember it was called 'Fanfare for Sophie' or something similar. One of the other members who are more of an expert on the British royals can probably help fill in the blanks.

It wouldn't surprise me if there was a fanfare or similar written for Charlene to be played on the wedding day.

The whole point of a Fanfare is that it does not only get played on the day of the wedding, but thereafter on important anniversaries, e.g. birthday, "name day", birth of first child etc.

That's why QE2 has a "Master of the Queen's Music"....

There is a "Fanfare for the Common Man" by Aaron Copeland, and many more...

What I want to know is which Olympians will show up!?! Seriously, I'm an aficionado of the Olympics, and can't wait to see whom was privileged enough to receive an invite. And I'm hoping to see not just swimmers, but others from different sports.

This is going to be EXCITING!

I think that Carl Philip and Madeleine will be made a couple there.

Many tennis players and Formula 1 drivers live in Monaco so I wouldn't be surprised to see some of them. Also some rock stars: Ringo Starr, Shirley Bassey, Tina Turner, Chuck Berry. Actors: Roger Moore. Actors' kids for sure: PA is good friends with Gregory Peck's kids, Jennifer (Cary) Grant, the Rosselinis (Ingrid Bergman), David Niven"S sons. And I can't see Karl Lagerfeld not being there.

Maybe it's just for the wedding, as sort of a wedding gift? Not necessarily going to play an anthem every time the new Princess makes an appearance?

Thank you, FanofMonaco, for another informative and interesting post.

Hmm, wasn't Princess Caroline dating one of the Rosselinis at one time? Some movie star's son I do recall, but can't remember which one. Anyhow, it will be nice to see some celebrities as well, likewise Olympians, sports stars, and of course Royals.

But I must confess, being a life-long figure skating fan, I would be overjoyed to see a figure skater there, be it Katarina Witt, Denise Biellmann, Lucinda Ruh, or even a current skater from the eligible ranks, not just professional. This is another reason why I'm over-the-moon about Princess Alexandra taking up skating as her sport of choice.

You're thinking of Isabella Rossellini and Roberto Rossellini ?

Princess Caroline was briefly engaged to Robertino Rossellini, son of Roberto Rossellini and actress Ingrid Bergman, before her second marriage.

Maybe she tried new hairdo with extensions as a trial for the wedding? Oh Lord have mercy on us, that she does not get the "Gone with the wind" dress and "Southern bell of the beginning of the century" updo? The went to Memphis and maybe she got inspired last year!
