PA declares an amnesty up to July 1st

Mainly about parking fines, imprisonment up to 3 months, etc.

PA won't pardon just anyone, though. Anything to do with drugs and dealing, drink-driving, sexual offences is not part of the amnesty.

That's a bit old-fashioned, isn't it? Most of the major royal houses declined to attend Prince Rainier and Princess Grace's wedding because
a) they looked down on the Grimaldis as scandalous, squabbling nobility (rather than royalty, and I guess they're still scandal-prone) and
b) because there would be "Hollywood people" there (Cary Grant and Ava Gardner, considered legends today) and royals weren't suppose to mingle with actors and performers because those professions were "low class."

Yes, you are right...it's VERY old-fashioned which is frankly the way I like it.

And anyway...Hollywood people circa 1956 is a far, far cry from what it is in 2011 even if they were all considered "low class" back then as well.

I agree. If they have a genuine friendship, that is one thing. If their relationship to the couple is kinda like they were at the same party 5 years ago and talked for 30 seconds, then that is hardly grounds for an invite. Does anyone know how Albert & Charlene know Ashton Kutcher & Demi Moore? That seems like one of the more random invites to me.

The thing about Will & Kate's ceremony is that they kept showing Elton John. Nothing against him, but no attention was paid to the foreign royals and that irked me. I hope the TV coverage of Albert & Charlene's wedding is more balanced.

PLEASE tell me that I misread...ASHTON KUTCHER AND DEMI MOORE??!

Maybe I got it wrong when I said this will be a more "glamourous" wedding
than the British one.

PA seems to simply be trying to fill the house at this point...or load the guest list with "names".

I hope this is not what he meant when he said his wedding will be "different" from William and Kate's...as in...more celebri-trash than the British wedding??

Albert and Demi worked together on the City of Beverly Hills Tribute to Grace back in 2005 or 2006. I can't remember when she wed Ashton, but it is possible Al and Demi dated...but I don't know for sure.

If Naomi does attend, I hope they give her some valium to keep her calm. Some valium for some of our comrades here on this thread might be in order, too. LOL

I personally don't think Demi Moore and Ashton K are invited.Vogue and other media just assumed that they are going to be present because Demi M was present at the bridal party.


I'm more irked about the possibility that Isabelle kristensen will be one of the bridesmaid tbh..i've always think that that honour belongs to a trusted friend from many many years,even childhood perhaps...doesn't she have any friends during her swimming years? I just can't imagine Isabelle K being a bridesmaid lol.She just seems soo,old? to be one.

Lol at KItty Atlanta about the valium comment

Is Ms. Kristinsen the woman who did the MidMar with Charlene this year? Blonde?

I am beginning to share the view that the guest list is starting to resemble a celebrity who's who. I know that Albert has mixed with quite a few of the Hollywood A listers over the years, but this seems more of a strategic move to attract public interest for the weddding in the States.

Elly C...I completely agree with your assessment of PA's strategy...which if it is what he is going for he is failing miserably.

I think he should concentrate on having a beautiful, meaningful wedding....and the rest will fall into place.

Mel Gibson at the wedding will certainly put things over the top...in more ways than one.

That may be so. I'm not bothered if that is the case. Who is invited will not dilute the wedding for me...I'm only interested in the bride and groom. Evidentally the old taboo of entertainers being "low class" has been eradicated amongst the European royalty, as they are all attending. I'm sure the younger royals actually like rubbing elbows with the "stars."

Kitty,this is Miss Isabelle K..she's a danish fashion designer based in London and Monaco

Totally agree, Vic Beckham loked so hideous at the royl wedding in London, Idk how people said she looked classy, she really didn't!

This wedding seems like it will have a lot of celebrities, I guess that's what Monaco is all about anyway, I guess...

It is a BIG part of what Monaco is all about. They just happen to have a Souverign.

Burnt, thanks for the link. Someone further up said she was old. Well, she is mature, but that doesn't have, IMO, anything to do with her being one of Charlene's attendants.

Since Monaco doesn't have a huge family to socialize with, I'm sure A&C have been attending lots of society events. That's probably where Charlene met Isabelle. If they are friends, what's the problem.

Somehow...I am feeling less and less enthusiastic about this wedding after today.

I have always hated the circus.

I hope I am wrong.

It's me who said she was old LOL..I guess if they're friends then there is'nt any problem about that.I'm just curious that her bridesmaids are'nt anyone of her peers from South Africa like Sarah Powe for example,but what the hell do i know about their private lives and as who's friends with whom? lol..i's just fun to speculate,imo

Well,this is Monaco..the country where the tacky,gaudy,oppulent,sophistication and classy collide. I always tend to lower my expectation as not to be disappointed later on :)

burnt...I think you have my vote for POST OF THE DAY.

I had low expectations for the Will/Kat wedding and look what happened...I thought it was beautiful and inspirational.

Monaco is not like any other place...it is a mixture of everything you describe. I will lower my expectations and hope for the best!
