If (or when) Charlene becomes proficient in French, PA can always switch to Spanish, German or Italian - if he wants to muddy the waters.

Have we heard her speak since that interview which she was slated for?
If not, then her french may have improved.

It would take a miracle for CW to learn French at this stage of the proceedings !

I just hope she doesn't fluff her lines at the marriage service .....

At this stage? Like I said, if we haven't heard her since the interview then we don't know the level of her french. Don't slate her for something we don't know about.

suspect Albert was rather a lonely man before Charlene came along. She makes him happy he her; I hope they have a few years together before the children come along. As Jane Austen would say .... they have a good a chance as any of being happy [entering the marriage stake] (or is it state?]!

I am sure Edward and Sophie will enjoy the day of the wedding too as Royal guests.

I don't think they have a few years to spare!
He's already in his mid-fifties, she in her mid-thirties; they had better not wait any longer. (Especially since the risk factor increases with age).

I think Charlene will do very well with Albert by her side. The wedding day will be exiting too. Charlene said she has a large family. I wonder how many of her relatives/friends will be arriving in Monaco. Grace's entourage was huge!

Mariage Princier - May 30th

The Brasserie de Monaco has come up with a special beer for the wedding: "une bière rose" - a pink beer!

Only available on the wedding days, and served on tables with the Monegasque flag. Also at the Jean-Michel Jarre concert at the Stade Louis II...

It is a white malt beer "bio" / ecolo...

It's been three years since my last post, when I predicted that these two would get hitched -- and almost got my eyes scratched out here on this forum in the process. From time to time I've checked back to follow 'public opinion', and you have all been a great source of information. Thank you for that! Aaaaanyways, I was wondering... if you could choose a suitable/appropriate wedding dress for Charlene, what would you put her in? Pictures please!

PS: Wedding dress, that is...

Apologies if this has been asked before but does anyone know what the dresscode for the various festivities will be?

I'm hoping for lots of outfit changes!

What tiara would you want to see on Charlene on her wedding day or future events?

Here is an article on Grace's tiaras:

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: Some of Grace's Tiaras

It is possible that she wont be wearing one since Grace,Caroline didnt wear one but,it is still fun to look!

ANOTHER GUEST CONFIRMATION!
This time none other than my favorites, The Duke and Duchess of Braganca will be representing the Portuguese royal family at the Monegasque royal wedding.
Família Real Portuguesa: SS.AA.RR., OS SENHORES DUQUES DE BRAGANÇA VÃO ESTAR PRESENTES NO CASAMENTO DO PRÍNCIPE ALBERTO DO MÓNACO

What exciting news! In the article the "protocol expert" was saying that the appropriate thing to wear would be hats, but she could and probably is making an assumption that hats will be worn, I'm still hoping for tiaras as it is 5 PM.

The Duke and Duchess of Braganca eh? When was the last time we saw them at a Royal wedding...was it the wedding of Charles-Philippe d'Orleans and Diana de Cadaval?

This is shaping up to be quite the Royal shindig. Albert seems to be pulling out the stops.

Thanks jonc93 !

Hmm it seems the Orleans-Cadaval wedding was the last major one they attended, but in October of 2009 they were at the wedding of Princess Isabel of Orleans Braganca. They would have attended Victoria of Sweden's wedding, but strangely they weren't invited, yet they were to the Kings 60th Birthday events, there was an article about it around the time of the wedding!
So we have, confirmed the King and Queen of Sweden, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden and Prince Carl-Philip and princess Madeleine of Sweden along with the Duke and Duchess of Braganca and also sort of confirmed Princess Maxima. Quite a nice group so far!! :)

I find it strange that, one month before the Event, there isn't a complete guest list.

The (potential) guests would, by now, have sorted out their diaries ......

The civil ceremony will be conducted by Philippe Narmino (the registrar) in French, though I suppose it's possible that some English might be used in the latter event.


I asked this because last month I really enjoyed the Cambridge wedding as it was delivered in English but if this one would be in full French it would be difficult for me to enjoy. Last year, I watched Crown Princess Victoria's wedding, it was a beautiful ceremony but I didn't understand a word they say so it dampened the spirit.

Maybe there is, but they haven't released it.

The two ceremonies will be conducted in french, we are in Monaco, the language is french.but I think the reporter will translate for the strangers.
There was a documentary last week on the wedding at the french tv. A man of the palace said there were many tv of different countries which ask to be there for boatdcasting the wedding, TV of europa, tv of Australie, japan and also a chinese tv. He said that there will be many cameras and for the tv which wants to show his own representants, there would be privat camera who will show them during the ceremony. For example, if the belgia tv wants to show the crown prince couple during the ceremony, there will be (if the tv wants) a privat camera which can show the princes during the ceremony.
The concert of Jean Michel Jarre will be boardcast internationaly, and you tube will boardcast.
I saw on Monaco info, a report of the repetions of the offering of the bouquet to the sainte Devote, it will be very beautiful with songs. It will be boardcasted.
every day, we have news on the wedding, to day, there is a report on Monaco Matin which talks about the news trumpets for the carabinieries.
The ZDf tv asks to be there all the day, the tv wants to show the entry of the royals and dignitaries at their hotel, the tv wants to be at the place of the palace to show what happens during this day before the ceremony and after the ceremony.
