I am not sure if it has been mentioned already but it looks like the whole Swedish Royal family will be attending the wedding, at least according to the diary.

No Pez dispenser? No bobble heads? Actually the items look very classy, but your're nobody if you don't have a bobblehead. Even Obama has a bobblehead.

I know that royalty is a little goofy for me being from the USA, but this appears to be a spectacular event and I love the clothes already. It really makes the 'other' wedding pale by comparison, which is ok, but, so far, what a relief to see how it should be done.
Welcome! I liked the UK wedding very much, but I am very much looking forward to the Monaco wedding of our beloved Princess Grace's only son, just like you are!

Also like melina-premiere, I am certain that HSH will treat his foreign Royal guests with a little more Continental graciousness than the Brits did. It was one of the few things that I found disappointing and annoying about the UK wedding..I can't remember such a lack of finesse at any previous British Royal wedding.

It can get a little intense on these Forums, everyone is very passionate about their favorite Royals...but it is also so much fun at times.

BTW...I love your name!

Guestlist of the Royal Wedding of Prince Albert - Do you think it would be longer and geographically wider than the recent Cambridge wedding? Prince Albert is a Head of State.

Ephram, I am certain it will be.

Prince Albert is rich as Croesus and is not under the type of constraints that William and Kate and the BRF were under due to Britain's economic hardships. HSH can afford to splurge...you can be sure that there will be no mini-buses for his Royal guests, no finger foods, and EVERYONE will be invited to ALL the pre-Nuptial and Nuptial festivities.

I really can't wait for this wedding.

Don't you think they are over exagerating with all the program? Too many dinners, balls, fireworks, etc? They have to party, yes, it's perfectly understandable because they are getting married, but they have to do this like a show for everyone? Is a marriage, not a show!

Plus, i think the Brits were correct. Europe's situation is not like they can be throwing money out the window, as Albert is planning. Too much preparation.
And then they will still party in SA. More money wasted.

I know he is a head of state, but can't he celebrate this more with his family? (oh yeah, and the people of Monaco) instead of the whole world?

This is a culture that is greatly influenced by the French and Italians: two cultures that know how to do things big. That is there way where as the British are all about pomp and circumstance and tradition. Two different cultures with two different perspectives and should not be compared.

Secondly Monaco seems to be one of the few European countries that is doing well in spite of the bad economy. PA is worth more than the BRF and if he wants to put his country on grand display why not? I am not going to begrudge them the glamour and glitz because Monaco is known for it. It's not their fault their economy is good and the rest of ours is in dire straits. At least it will cheer me up to see others happy and celebrating.

And in this comsumer driven world that money won't go to waste as SA and Monaco businesses will recieve attention and business which creates revenue and money for employee's to spend.

How rich is Monaco? Compared to all the other Royal Families they don't seem to have all the Castles, Palaces but are they richer than the British Royal Family? I know the Queen will never be able to sell the paintings or the jewels as they belong to the country and are not her personal possessions??

I for one am all about the go big or go home kind of weddings! I mean If you're royal and you got the money, then go all out! Victoria went all out for her wedding and what a treat it was! This wedding I think might be the biggest royal wedding we've seen in years in terms of money spent on it. I'm sure Albert is going to have a new fleet of hot cars for all the royals, and I hope he rides in a nice Rolls from his fathers collection of cars. If I had his money I would be celebrating that way too!

Prince Albert is said to worth $2-2 1/2 billion dollars. Yes, Monaco doesn't have room for many palaces or castles but it is a gambling paradise that attracts the very wealthy so they have plenty of cash. That $2b or so doesn't take into account any losses from the worldwide economic downturn . But I'd say, even with those possible losses he's still doing better than most of the European royal families with the exception of Luxembourg & Lichtenstein.

This is Monaco. Glamour capital of the world. Of course there will be a big wedding. Besides, that's what the people live for; births, weddings and funerals. It will also generate lots of income not only for Monaco, but for that whole area between Nice, France and the Italian border. Everybody's happy.

Fan of Monaco:
I wholeheartedly concur!

Prince Albert is half Philadelphian via Grace and our economy sucks but I know people in my neighborhood, which is around where Gace Kelly is from are excited about the nuptuials. The shops in Manyunk and in Roxborough-I heard-are doing something in honour of the day. If that happens and they can generate a lot of business, PA will be indirectly helping his mother's hometown local businesses. I want to host something for my block because we have a lot of Baby Boomers and their live in parents who would appreciate it enough to have an afternoon tea and watch a recording.
