No, but it doesn't belong to Charlène. That was borrowed by Caroline for the occasion. PA offred Charlène two Tiaras, but she choose not wearing one of them.

Karl Lagerfeld is talking about the fashion choice, He likes the Armani wedding gown, also he likes Charlotte's and Caroline's choices. He said he didn't like most of the hats that Royal ladies have choosen to wear :~)

Yes one of them is a Van Clef& Arpels and other convertible to necklace. The brooch Charlène is wearing on her hair, was borrowed by Caroline for the occasion.

After seeing the dress fully I like it for Princess Charlene. It suits the style she is
projecting, clean lines and elegant. The neckline is perfect for her. She has such
broad shoulders that the placement of the neckline at the shoulder minimizes this.
Thought she looked lovely.
Yes I wanted a tiara but the diamonds in her hair are very much her thing.
Just wondering does she ever wear her hair down?

The Prince does responds to the crowds. I think the Princess is overcome with emotion at the moment.

Beautiful dress and headpiece.

Its a local folk song/hymn in honour of The Virgin Mary.

Ahhhh, I was overcome by the intimacy and warmth of the ceremony, watched the whole thing except for one tiny section wherein both girls walked to the altar with the rings (darn gardeners arrived early).

Still full of emotion and tears, cried here & there, especially when Andrea Bocelli sang "Ave Maria", that's when I completely broke down & lost it. I know it's cliche, but he truly does have the voice of an angel, straight from God & heaven above.

And my hat goes off to each and every one of the Grimaldi women, they did Monaco proud today, from the littlest ones to the older ones. The readings were the most touching, with my favorite being "God Is Love". How truly humbling...

This was a family affair, and it showed, sister cheek to cheek, cousin cheek to cheek, reunited in love for their sovereign, brother, uncle, cousin, and his beautiful bride. May they live long and healthy and happy lives and be blessed from up above! I know Rainier & Grace were watching. :)


SALUT!!!!

Are you referring to the junior bridesmaids? Was their outfits a nod to a traditional costume from Monaco?

I would also add that the wedding had nice touches from Monaco, South Africa, and what appeared to be a nod to his American heritage.

I don't think we will have a balcony kiss now- since its basically empty now in front of the palace and all the streets up on the rock are empty. Does anyone know if a balcony appearance was scheduled?

For this one, I'm willing to stay and watch everything. I was enamored of Grace and Rainier, and now I'm enamored of Charlene and Albert. I can't believe this lovely woman is now a bona fide Princess.

CNN is now closing their coverage.

Sounds like this one:


Nous te saluons, ô toi Notre Dame,
Marie Vierge Sainte que drape le soleil,
Couronnée d’étoiles, la lune est sous tes pas.
En toi nous est donnée l’aurore du Salut.

Marie, Eve nouvelle et joie de ton Seigneur,
Tu as donné naissance à Jésus le sauveur
Par toi, nous sont ouvertes les portes du jardin,
Guide-nous en chemin, Etoile du matin.

Tu es restée fidèle, mère au pied de la croix,
Soutiens notre espérance et garde notre foi.
Du côté de ton Fils, tu as puisé pour nous
L’Eau et le sang versés qui sauvent du péché.

Quelle fut la joie d’Eve lorsque tu es montée,
plus haut que tous les anges, plus haut que les nuées,
Et quelle est notre joie, douce Vierge Marie,
De contempler en Toi la promesse de vie.

Ok here is my recap:

Charlene- wedding dress very disappointing- very blah-nothing special and gave her no shape at all - but that's Armani's fault not hers. She looked beautiful from the neck up.

Albert- Uniform not a good choice- the black like Rainer wore would have been better and not showed how heavy he is. Looked very waiter/crusise ship. He also looked handsome from the neck up

Caroline - Absolutely stunning- Loved the hat- reminded me of Grace

Stephanie- looked good

Andrea-Pierre - very handsome

Charlotte- beautiful as always- she can pull of anything with her beauty

Parents and brothers of Charlene looked very nice

Royals looked very nice- I'll comment on them on the appropriate thread


Overall the wedding was nice. Not much emotion or love seen in it- but everyone is different I guess. IMO Albert was figity and Charlene looked medicated. Not too many people came out to celebrate- I thought they were expecting 200,000 people? Maybe the expectations before hand were too high.

Highlights of the wedding was Andrea Bocelli singing the Ave Maria

The palace where the wedding took place was stunning and will make for some great pictures. It was a very nice event- but certainly not worth 68 million dollars. Perhaps that is an exaggeration.

I thought I saw an elegant Empress Farah Diba in lime green suit - could be wrong with matching hat and I also thought I saw Sophia Loren and Roger Moore at the wedding mass.Cw's mother was very elegant.Also caught a glimpse of Maria teresa The grand Duchess of Luxembourg
