Wedding of Charlotte Casiraghi and Dimitri Rassam: the speech of Alberto di Monaco who "moved" his sister Caroline
Jacques and Gabriella attended Charlotte at the wedding as page boy and flower girl? How adorable they must have been!

Oh I really would love to see a picture of Jacques and Gabriella but unfortunately it seems that it is going to be impossible!

If only the guests at the civil wedding hadn't gone hog wild with photos and videos(even though I enjoyed them!)

But even if they had not, it's obvious the bridal couple wanted their wedding to stay as private as possible....when people share almost every minute of their waking lives with press and public(willingly or unwillingly) they are bound to become strict about guarding privacy.

Only Pierre and Beatrice seemed to have no restrictions about coverage of their wedding celebrations.

I'm glad there was a blackout on this religious wedding, way too many stalkers & weirdos out there that follow her around in real life & on the internet (ETA: wanting to know everything & I do mean everything; leave her alone, let it be private, gee whiz! ), not to mention the paparazzi. The religious wedding, imho, should just be the bride, God, the groom, and close family & friends.

That said, I've enjoyed watching all the Grimaldi Weddings this past decade. Each one perfect for the individual couple. Albert & Charlene's was dazzling and memorable, one for the ages, as it should be because the reigning monarch got married. Next, Andrea & Tatiana, low-key & beautiful and fairly private. Then came the sophistication & aristocratic wedding of Pierre & Beatrice, perfect for them, and fitting. Finally, the only girl of the Casiraghi Trio, the one whom has been arguably the most watched & followed of the three due to her beauty, style, and grace. Her wedding being the most private of the three, as it should be for obvious reasons.

Now onto the rest of the cousins ~ Stephanie's son, Louis, next ~ and hopefully Jazmin & Ian will follow.

Just received my July 3rd issue of Point de Vue/France...and after reading I understand why the couple did not allow cell phones.

During the reception as the evening wore on, Charlotte and 3 of her friends took the microphone on stage and began crooning Celine Dion love songs.

Seriously ...I would never believe this unless I saw it with my own eyes...either the image the public has had of this girl has been all wrong for years, or she is a changed woman. Drastically changed.

Also, Charlotte did indeed wear a diamond clip in her hair along with a spray of lavender. These diamond clips were a gift from the late Karl Lagerfeld to Princess Caroline and were made by Boucheron in the 19th century. They are the same clips Caroline loaned to Charlene for her wedding to Albert in 2011.

The bridal dinner was at night at Caroline's villa/farm Mas de la Source. It was lit by soft candlelight and violet hues. The cuisine was Provencal of course and was described as "incredibly delicious". Prince Albert's speech made Caroline cry.

Charlotte wanted to be married there because more than any other place, she associates Provence with pure happiness.

One of the guests said Albert's speech was about his deep love and pride in his nieces and nephews, and that Caroline was not the only one moved to tears by it..

But just like Charlotte's impromptu "concert"unless one of the guests secretly filmed it ,we will just have to use our imagination!��

Awww, the former is easier to imagine as we've seen lots of strong evidence of Albert's love and price of his nephews and nieces throughout the years. Charlotte's concert though!

I cannot imagine that her husband and her babies-who played significant roles at the ceremony- would attend without the Princess.

But if Charlene was not there...isn't there some rule that at least one member of the Princely family must always be in Monaco?

Because if Charlene was in the South of France with the rest of them the entire Famille Princiere was gone with no Regent holding down the Fort(pun intended)

We know for sure Charlene attended the civil ceremony and the parties.

You could always tell that Albert and all his nieces and nephews get along extremely well. I remember reading that Albert really made an effort to fill some sort of father figure role in their lives after Stefano died.

And they don´t attend engagements with Albert for nothing.

True...also Albert's reaction to Pierre's bar fight in NYC some years back was very revealing. Princess Caroline was understandably upset but Albert was said to be very very angry...truly livid at Adam Hock( the guy who hit Pierre).

When Hock wanted to attend a birthday party for Naomi Campbell in Monte Carlo, permission to enter the Principality was denied to him on Albert's orders.

Albert has reportedly threatened Hock with arrest if he ever sets foot in Monaco.

Naomi was unable to persuade Albert to change his mind.

When Charlene went into labor to have the twins, Andrea was first at the hospital to support his uncle.
