On the eve of the first wedding anniversary of PA and PChar I submit my first post! It is the "Click Song" performed directly after the couple had exchanged rings. In the latter half of the video watch out for some tender moments between the couple as well as the reaction of PSteph in the background...hold thumbs that my first attempt will work...

It certainly doesnt look like any of the grimaldi's are enthusiastic. Including the groom. He makes Charles look deleriously happy on his first wedding day.

I know that I'm late but I would like to know if there is a full trascription of P. Albert wedding speech! I saw the video and it lasted more or less 2 minutes... did i miss something or was that the whole speech?

Marty91charmed, this link shows his entire speech. I wasn't able to watch it on a mobile device, only on on the website. I hope it's still available, though. Post # 652, if that is any help...

OMG...if Charlene was not one of the most beautiful Royal brides ever, I don't know who was! She looked incredible. And I have searched and searched but I don't see any of the "misery" I am always reading about. They looked tense and nervous but that is not surprising given the circumstances that surrounded their wedding.

I am so happy that they have proven the naysayers wrong!

Oh Moonmaiden23, I so agree with everything you say! They were so nervous having the eyes of the whole world on them, it was also televised live in SA! And I really don't understand why so many people thought they looked unhappy when there were so many tender glances, they were holding hands, etc. and the previous day at the Civil wedding there were many sweet moments too. I think they are doing the right thing in just living their lives and gradually the critics will see the truth, that they are truly happy and content to be together.

I don't know if this was already posted but i found a beautiful video of the wedding dinner which I had not seen before! The first part has no audio but just skip to when the singer Umberto Tozzi sings...https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v...type=3&theater

Oh wow...that cake!! Look at how happy everyone looked. I love Caroline and Grand Duke Henri giggling together like kids. Look at how Albert held Charlene's hand throughout the singing. The Grimaldi obviously have money to burn and they spared no expense. This was a truly lavish wedding.

Marty91..thank you! I wish everybody who thinks this was a gloomy wedding could see this video!

yes, that is a lovely video. I like the part too where they are dancing and the Princess sings the words of the song to him. It short it says that she is laying her whole heart before him, when time has passed and it is no more, she will stay close to him, be with him, with all of her heart.

The group who performed later said in an interview to a magazine how down to earth and laid back they experienced the Prince to be. They enjoyed a beer together and he said "lekker!", which is Afrikaans for "very nice."

I was one of the people who thought she looked unhappy during her wedding. Since then, I have gotten married and if you were to look at pictures of me entering the church I look much like Charlene. I was trying to hold back tears; tears of joy that I was finally marrying the man who is now my husband - or that after all that planning my wedding day was finally here and the planning and preparing is finally over, and we can start our life together.

I have also realized that Charlene's smile is more subdued than what we expect from any person who we perceive is happy. I'm not saying that is a bad thing, it is what it is- in my mind.

That all makes a lot of sense.

I was too busy admiring the floral diamond brooches in her hair to read into her emotional state, personally :)

Plus Albert has as a norm a rather 'nervous' quality when he is interviewed and talks. It's just his manner in public. It must have been accentuated when he was getting married like for any man. (They did have to deal with the nasty press about a 'fleeing bride' and 'extra babies' - it cannot have been fun.)

There are some unforgettable images, like of the rose petals. Her gown was beautiful, as was she.

Just an aside: Monaco has such a tiny area to work with outside the palace and yet they always design it to perfection for all these events. They did so with the wedding.

A very nice video. One also sees how in sync they were even then regarding their public presentation - like with the dancing. Albert did lose a few pounds for the wedding. He's such a teddy bear!

A super nice man - and a prince to boot! Charlene is a very lucky girl imo.

Thanks to everyone. Albert's shyness and sweetness when he was repeating to himself the words "ti amo" of the song (I love you) is very endearing! He had no courage to sing them in front of Charlene with all those eyes on them! And also when Charlene cries a bit at hearing afrikaans!

BTW I found hilarious that Michael Wittstock talked in such a confortable way to Queen Paola of Belgium

Congrats on your wedding DoD. I wish we could see some photos! I am such a sap for weddings that I cry even at Vegas ceremonies!
