it is said there will be the list of the guests on the end of may. Franziska van Almsick, Roland Schoeman and Sarah Poewe said they receive the invitation and they will go , for the invitation of President Zuma,François Pinear, it was in the sa Newspapers,
For the palace website, there are already many news on it, there is a count down.

Well I'm still hoping for a traditional American type wedding, just as Prince Albert's mother, Grace Kelly, had, which included the following:

BRIDAL PARTY:

*Matron of Honor = Peggy (Grace's older married sister).
*Bridesmaids = 6 close friends of Grace's (all adult females close in age to Grace).
*Junior Attendants = 6 children (4 girls + 2 boys) whom appear to range in age from 5-12 years of age.

Source of reference: Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier's Weddings
Prior Engagement

Picture of the entire Bridal Party: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_KKNyXy942P...rty-790484.jpg


Based on the above, I would like to see the following for Charlene's Bridal Party:

*Matron of Honor = Caroline (as she's older than Stephanie) or a close friend of Charlene's, if unmarried she would become the Maid of Honor.
*Bridesmaids = 6 consisting of Charlotte, Pauline, Melanie de Massy, and 3 close friends of Charlene's that are all unmarried, as traditionally bridesmaids are unwed young women of marriageble age.
*Junior Attendants = 12 yr. old Camille (she won't turn 13 until July 12th) + her 11 yr. old cousin Alexandra (she won't turn 12 until July 20th) + 4 more little ones. :)

That's it, I'd be happy! Oh and of course we can't leave out the groom's party. Albert could have a best man + groomsmen/ushers, whom can be made up of his nephews ~ Andrea, Pierre, Louis, Ernst August Jr., Christian Hanover ~ plus anybody else he has in mind (aka first cousins on his mother & father's side of the family).


Regards prospective Royal Guests from the UK, I'm hoping for Prince Charles + Camilla because this is the wedding of a Sovereign, therefore deserving of an Heir Apparent's attendance imho. Also, Charles is closer in age to Albert, they know each other, and both have worked on environmental issues together in the past. If not them, then I hope for Prince Andrew, as he was present at Prince Rainier's Funeral.

As for Albert's children, his interaction with them has always been private, and I don't see that changing anytime soon. I say respect his and their privacy. Leave them alone.


ps: HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY EVERYBODY!!!!

You'll be lucky to see Charles, Camilla or Andrew. Edward and Sophie seem the most likely especially since they attended Alberts enthronement.

My suggestions:
Best man: Andrea Cairaghi
Maid of Honour: some Charlene's Cousin (she doesn't have sisters)
Flower Girls & Page Boys: Vittoria Knecht, Rose de Brouwer, Alexandre Coste (if he will be present) maybe some Kelly relative or godchild(ren - if there are any; also that of Charlene - why not?)
I think that Albert's two youngest nieces - Camille & Alexandra - are already a bit too old for this role; they are teenagers. On the wedding of William & Catherne none of assisting children was ths age.

Of course the clegymanof highest rank will celebrate the ceremony.

As for anthems: one wrote by an American, to emphasize the US roots of the groom (in original version, not translated int French) and maybe one from South African Republic.

Royal Family of Great Britain will be represented by Edward & Sophie, I suppose,
Also President & First Lady of France will be present
Belgium: Laurent & Claire
Netherlands: Constantijn & Laurentien
Spain: prince & Princess of Asturias
Sweden: Duchess & Duke of Vastergotland
Luxembourg: Grand Ducal Couple & Prince Guillaume
Liechtenstein: Princely Couply, the Heir & his wife
Norway: Crown Princely Couple
President Jacob Zuma
Prince Moulay Rachid of Morocco
Presidential Couple of Germany
some representative of US Government

Maybe Athina Onassis & her husband? Her grandpa was present at Albert's parents wedding...
sweden will be there as a family, king, queen, crown princess, prince daniel, prince carl philip and princess madeleine

There were two reports on the wedding this week in Monaco info. One on the flags which will decore the principauty, they are very beautiful,they are white with a golden crown and the titles 'mariage princier 1 et 2 juillet 2011 the letters are printed in gold, they are 600, they are finished, they will decore in june the principauty
There was an other interview of the director of the SBM , he said that all is ready to receive the royal guests in the hotels.
There is also a team of persons (women and men) who are employed who will accompagne the royal guests during the wedding, there is an interview of a woman who will do this work
There were also 2 reports on the reception of the Monegasques who will attend to the coctails, there will be a special bier for this event and there is one another interview of the chief who will make the dinner of the reception with the residents
And on Monaco Matin, there is a video of Jean Michel who was at monaco for his big concert. We can see that all will be ready for the wedding

Even if Alexandre were to attend, I do not think he would be made a part of the wedding party. That would seem like a royal no no to me.

Hmm, in retrospect, I think you are right, Lumutqueen. :)

I base this not on the fact that Prince Andrew was there for Prince Rainier's Funeral in 2005 nor Edward & Sophie were there for the Enthronement of Prince Albert also in 2005, but rather I base it on the fact that for the Royal Wedding of Crown Princess Victoria to Daniel Westling last year, the UK sent the Wessexes, no other. And that was a high profile wedding of the Heir Apparent, yet they sent their 3rd best imho.

So based on the above, I too feel they will send the Wessexes again, perhaps becoming their *permanent* representatives for all such weddings for now & in the future? I don't mind, I have nothing against them, just speculating on whom will be sent to represent the Royal Family from the UK.

I'm just glad that the entire Swedish Royal Family will be there, but my view of Carl Phillip has changed somewhat (for the negative, unfortunately), therefore I seriously would give anything to have Prince Amadeo of Belgium be there instead. Ah, that tall good-looking, intelligent drink of water, who can resist a man in uniform: http://www.etonline.com/media/photo/...v1_640x600.jpg


ps: I realized in my summarization up above, in another post, that I forgot to include Prince Albert's two future brothers-in-law, Gareth & Sean, as part of his groom's party. How remiss of me, I now include them as well.

I too think he will have somebody closer to his age be his best man (if he has one at all), and whom better than his first cousin on his mother's side. A nice way to include his mother's side of the family as well.

I'm just hoping & praying & wishing (lol) that this wedding will be more like his mother's, Grace Kelly, in terms of there being a Matron/Maid of Honor, Bridesmaids, and Junior Attendants. Like I wrote up above in another post.

The more family the merrier!

Well, there are plenty of family to go round !!
The hard bit is to know whom to choose, and whom to leave out :-)
In this regard, the Monaco wedding is just like any other wedding, with the need to try to please everyone - but not succeeding, no doubt...

I wouldn't like to be in his shoes.

I'm not sure if this has already been posted, an article about a party Prince Albert and Charlene are apparently planning in South Africa after their wedding in July.

I have just read that the newlywed Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first overseas visit to Canada and the U.S will coincide with the Monaco wedding.

I think William and Kate are an adorable couple now, and I LOVED their wedding-it was very moving and beautiful-but I am starting to get the uncomfortable feeling that all the news AND Royalty coverage will be on those two and not so much on Albert nd Charlene's wedding...and that makes me very, very unhappy.

I want to read about Albert and Charlene during the week of their wedding...not the Cambridge's first State visit overseas!

Yes I think you're right it is inevitable that the focus will be on these two as it is their first official trip abroad. However, everyone loves a wedding and the legacy of Princess Grace still manages to attract interest so we can only hope it is a slow news week otherwise. On the bright side there will be plenty of Royal stories in our magazines.

I think it's going to be relative to where one lives. I think American coverage will be somewhat extensive because of Prince Albert's heritage. By the same token Monaco is not talked about much unless there is scandal. The BRF is more popular all around. However in PHILADELPHIA where Grace was from, her family left a very big mark on this city and its all everyone can talk about. I think our local station will definitly cover it.

It's really rude and petty if PW and Kate will be in LA the same dates as PA's wedding. I think the Queen is behind this. PA's wedding was announced over a year ago so it was deliberate.

Nothing says William and Kate have to lie low just because they aren't attending the wedding. I HIGHLY doubt they're doing this on purpose. As most members here know the Duke and Duchess hate the press so I doubt they'd encourage them. It is a bit early for their normal foreign tours but it's prob due to William's deployment next year as well as the Jubilee and Olympics that is forcing them to do it so early. Either way you guys need to relax the wedding will be covered I'm sure of that, maybe not to the extent that the Duke and Duchess' wedding was covered but I'm certain atleast a few channels will show it and I'm sure it'll be talked about in the news atleast in America/Canada.

I really don' t think this would have in anyway influenced the timing. From what I have read, the British government are very much in the driving seat of when official visits are scheduled.

Yes perhaps we all need to chill and enjoy the build up to the big day because Monaco is releasing far more information for us to ponder on than we had for Will & Kate.

It's nothing of the sort. Petty and deliberate? Why would The Queen involve herself in something ridiculous. The suggestion is silly. How about Albert and Charlene never invited William and Kate or perhaps Charles and Camilla are going to the wedding? Or Sophie and Edward, both more likely options as they are friends of the couple.
