I hope seing the Princess Stephanie's children at the weedding of their uncle Albert. Stephanie said her children like very much Charlene; and we saw photos where Camille is kissing her uncle very much in july 2005 and holding his hand in july 2005 when there was the fest with the monegasque people when Albert became prince soveregn of monaco,I hope Camille will be also flowerbride for Charlene. I thinck Stephanie would be ok for the presence of her chidren at the weedding.

I would hope that the whole family is there, but you never know. The Chapel of St Devote where CW will offer her bouquet of flowers is it this?

Yes it is a very beautiful chapel, which is not very big, at the fest of St Devote on 26th january, there is a mass with the Prince and then he makes fire to a boat and there is a big firework on the port, and on january the 27th, there is a procession who go from st Devote to the palace and to the cathedral of St Nicholas with the prince Albert and Ste Devote is the sainte who protects Monaco, but we fest also sainte Devote in the south of France

Hmm so if it is, then they will need to travel by car, I wonder if they will use their standard Mercedes like on National day, or use one of their cars from their antique collection. I hope they use a nice antique car like Rainier and Grace did, but at that time it wasn't an antique haha!

From what I've read, the Rolls-Royce Rainier and Grace used from the Cathedral on their wedding day was a wedding gift to them from the Monegasques.

Hmm I didn't know that! I wonder what the Sovereign couple will receive from Monaco as an official gift? I hope Charlene gets a nice piece of Jewelery or a nice dinner service. :)

On point de Vue, it is said the couple will take a convertible car to go to the Chapel because after they will offer the bouquet to Ste Devote, they will make a drive in Monaco as Prince Rainier and Princess Grace made after their marriage.On Nice Monaco, it is said they will walk untill the Chapel because the chapel is not very far from the palace.Princess Caroline and Philippe walked until the chapel after their weedding. It will be televised.
On Nice Monace this morning, there is the program for 2011 for the Grimaldi Forum. There will be an exposition about famous royals couple from XVI until XXI century with things that belonged to Charles Quint Philippe II of Spain of course there will things who belonged to prince Rainier and Princess Grace and ther will be news photos of Prince Albert and Charlene Wittstock on the big glasses . I will go to see this exposition because I like very much history

very much history
It would be nice if they walked for us to see them, maybe not so nice on Charlene's feet! I'm starting to get more excited for this wedding, July will be here sooner than we think! The palace needs to start releasing more official information! lol

the civil and religious will be at 5 Pm, it is more confortable for the people who live far from Europe to watch the weedding. For me the weedding of Prince William and Kate and the weedding of Prince Albert are at the right hours.
For the news of the weedding of Prince Albert, it is yet early to have information on the weedding because it will be in 6 months.the newspapers can only make like us suggestions from news they received of the palace

All posts speculating about the engagement pics having been made years
before the engagement have been removed as it's a barren discussion.
Thanks for your understanding!

It might be very difficult for them to navigate through the huge crowd expected at the Palace Square for Charlene to lay her bouquet at the Saint Devote chapel right after the ceremony or to walk through the streets of Roc Agel the way Caroline and Junot did.

I'm also wondering if the Royals who intend to attend the wedding are anxious about the security because of the proximity of the crowd to the wedding party. Will the Princely Palace be able to accommodate these royal guests? Just wondering about Prince Albert's coronation where there were several royal guests -- did they stay at the palace or in hotels?

The royals will be inside the palace in the courtyard. I am guessing most of the people allowed in the square will be citizens. If Monaco's palace is like most, the walls are several feet thick and very secure. On a big event like that I think they hire extra help from the French police/military. I don't think the palace is big enough to house all of the royals. Some may fly in for the day. Some have villas nearby and some will stay at one of the hotels. Security has always been pretty tight there due to the high number of millionares that live and visit there.

Depending on how many royals go, they could be housed at the palace or hotels. The Monegasque Palace is not as large as other palaces but is not small either, for the royal guests at Alberts Enthronement, I'm sure they stayed at the palace as there were so few to begin with. I'm sure it will also go by rank with all heads of state offered accommodations at the palace first then Crown Princes & Princesses then Princes & Princes and then Non-reigning royalty. Or at least that is how I would think is the most logical way to do it, but sometimes they do not follow protocol to tightly in Monaco.

On december nice matin said the hotels of monaco had booked a list of rooms for the guests of the weeddings and for the press.There are also hotels in Nice, Menton,Cannes which are french towns not far from Monaco.For the weedding of Prince Rainer all the hotels on the coast of the south were full . The principal ceremony, the religious one is at 5 hours pm.Some guests could arrive in the day and it will depend if there will be diners during the week end.
The guests will be safe in the courtyard which is as safe as in a cathedral .The people who will be on the palace will be also guests of the Prince and citizen of Monaco. And it is said that the palce will be loocked and the invitations cards will be asked at the entrance as it was asked in july 2005 when Prince Albert became sovereign and he hosted the citizens of Monaco at the end of this day

Honestly, I nearly died it was so gorgeous.
Victor Stiebel was, and he a royal connection to. He designed the going away dress for Margrat when she married Lord Snowden.

I think it would be nice if she did a mix of both. Perhaps for the civil ceremony, she choose armani. Princess Grace wore a suit didn't she for that? Something more structured and more traditional armani. And then for the religious, go for a South African designer like Hendrik Vermeulen. He has some amazing couture wedding gowns, and I am sure he could design her a beautiful one. And for that she could be all feminine, pearls and lace and such.

I like the thought of maybe her attendants if she has them, if not perhaps people like Princess Caroline, in channel.

This is an international marriage, I'd like to see them embrace that.

bestman is the man's attendant, and yes coming from a very catholic up bringing, we have maids of honor. You have your maid of honour, bridesmaids and flower girls, and your best man, groomsmen/ushers, and ring bearer/page.

Saint Nicholas Cathedral, Monaco - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

They both say they house the tombs of Ranier and Grace.
How is it everyone skips the very first sentence it clearly states the Cathedral Notre Dame Imacula (The cathedral of the immaculate lady) also known as the Cathedral of St. Nicholas. It is the same church, two names for some reason, hence they both say they are the burial place for Grace and Rainier, it is the same church.

Well I don't think many will be surprised by this news. However, the Google translation has an interesting selection of lexis which spices up the story.

Armani designing the wedding dress is not much of a surprise as he seems to be her go to designer. Something like Katie Holmes' dress would be nice, something that isn't strapless with at least a 10 foot train would be very nice. Or autumn Philips dress with a longer train.

I like the Autumn Philips Dress, it would be nice, but I do not like a dress with a very long train. I liked also the dress of Letizia but with short sleeves because it is very hot in monaco in July
