Whether it's real or not I sincerely hope she makes the best of her new role. Something tells me (real or not) that's she's smart enough to keep her mouth shut and plunge herself into various charities and projects. I think she's in it for the long haul and I wish her the best of luck.

As for what the "reality" is; the "reality" is that unless you know the couple very personally you have no idea if they have an motivations other than romance for getting married. Albert was under no pressure to and Charlene didn't have to say "oui". Given that, I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt, take them at the word and, dare I say it, just look at how they appear together and from where I sit they seem like two people who are great friends who decided to marry.

I will never understand the instant negativity some people feel towards others who never did them the slightest harm.
The people have long wanted to have a 'family' back in the palace and naturally want their Prince to be happy. If they are, I am.

Vive l'Prince! Vive l'Princesse!


Amen totally agree with you.

It's easy to tell things just by looking at some pics, but watching at this gallery, I felt that Stephanie and her kids were very lonely. It doesn't seem that there is any link between them and Caroline and her family.

Edit: these are the first pics of Beatrice's appearance at the civil wedding that I see, and she was amazing.

I noticed that too....the apparent disconnect between Stephanie and Caroline and their children...it makes me sad for all of them.

Caroline's and Stephanie's offspring have had vastly different upbringings..Caroline's are more "official" and more public, and more glamorous.

But in the end, family is all we have. I hope they are closer than they appear to be.

I completely, 100% agree. I think whatever internal struggle she had was over long before today.

I saw serenity and resolve on her face...I think she know it won't be lollipops and roses from here on in and she has accepted it.

During the arrivals for the mass it once looked like Andrea was not talking very nicely to his aunt... It looked like he was downright rude, and he had a mean look on his face while talking to Stephanie. She turned around and shrugged

I don't want to get into a big argument or anything, and everyone is entitled to their own opinions ofcourse. But I thought it was cruel for people to be so nasty about them on their wedding day.
I'm a huge fan of the Grimaldi's (all of them), so I really cannot stand all the nagativity towards a wedding thats meant to be full of joy and happiness. I just think it's incredibly mean-spirited.

However, if you feel personally about what I said, maybe spare a thought for Prince Albert & Princess Charlene, having so many people criticise them on their special day.

On the other hand, this new generation, Casiraghi, Ducuret, Hanover, Gotlieb... all the kids in general are a joy, a feast for the eyes... what a bunch of beautiful flowers! Yes Sir!

I have to say I was really disappointed by Charlotte's outfits. I thought she'd look simply stunning but on that day her clothes were a mess. That hat hiding her face and that dress which didn't fit her. Terrible choices. I think Stephanie and Pauline looked the best on the first day.

Why did they sit down during the civil wedding ceremony?

Daisygoogles - during a civil wedding ceremony, the couple do not stand upright all the time. There are formalities to be gone through, and the couple might want to read out their favourite passages etc.

In Monaco, their way of doing things are particularly Monegasque, e.g. the ornate chairs for bride and groom.

I guess they wanted to feel comfortable amongst their friends and family.
All they needed to do in a standing position was simply the signing of the registers, and even that can be done sitting down if desired.

I agree, but she redeemed herself at the ball last night. She was completely stunning.

Did anyone notice on the photos and official video of the civil ceremony that Charlene's expression was almost like a forced open smile? For all we know, if the rumours are not true after all, then any anxiety showing on her face could be from the pressure to act as happy as possible, even if it does come across slightly fake! I wish them all the best, as I think they do love each other very much, and Charlene is a smart enough individual to make decisions for the good rather than the bad.

Indeed, she looked really pretty on the long blue dress, but before that...

Monaco Hebdo:

"Un mariage civil célébré par un Monégasque" - A civil marriage celebrated by a Monegasque...

Philippe Narmino is the Director of Justice Services, and he is the first Monegasque who was able to discharge that happy duty. Until then, a French official would have done it; the Minister of State is still a Frenchman....
