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.
Thank you. The song is called: Couronnée d'étoiles

He'd say that about Caroline and Charlotte because they are close friends. No surprises there.

I personally find it odd that he consistently wears those horrid little pervy leather gloves. He thinks of himself as above and beyond though. Always has. Craft aside, he's such a creep of a man.

For some it is neither. Never saw a sader bride. Never saw less affection between a newly wed couple. The tears in the chapel looked from sadness, not from joy, Prince Albert did not notice and certainly show no affection or comfort. Maybe someone in the family is ill or she had some other bad news?

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.
Armani is known for his pared-down creations and this was no exception. I personally loved her dress and I thought Albert looked very nice as well.

More people were located closer to town in the tourist hot-spots. As for the whole medication thing....I thought she looked like she was trying to hold it together. Don't forget she did cry in the church.

You are right though different people see different things.

I hope the ceremony gets uploaded somewhere so it's available to watch. Charlene looked beautiful. Everyone looked lovely and it was so nice to see sunshine, haha.

Countess of Wessex looked lovely, as did Crown Princess Victoria. I love the men in the uniform, though the white uniforms were so bright.

She looked amazing. Very beautiful and classy dress, lovely hairstyle and fabulous hairpiece. It really surprised me with the class it showed. But she looked sad, sad, sad, apart from a few moments. No warmth or intimacy in them touching. One wonders why they got married in the first place?

The coldness between the couple was noticed in online and news comments too.

I'll never understand why so many (Grimaldis or otherwise) take that old man as an oracle of fashion wisdom. He looks like an undertaker most of the time or one of those "shady people" Monaco was famous for.

If anything, I think it would be more probable to be the other way around...

What a lovely ceremony. I loved the glances they gave each other during it.

It was very nice to see the Grimaldi sisters and all their children together and to hear their voices at the readings.

What I really liked is that the Casiraghi kids all could walk in the Palace with their respective partners.

When Charlene started crying in the Sainte Dévote church, I thought she never looked more beautiful.

What I didn't like is that the bridesmaid(s) didn't take better care of Charlene. She was struggling with her bouquet because no one took it from her when the ceremony started and when they went out of the Palace her train looked like a mess.
And when she walked in on her father's arm she looked like she really had to pull the train.

And although the cour d'honneur was a beautiful setting, I would have liked it more in the cathedral I think.

Hope to see the official pictures soon and of the dinner later.

The African singer must have been a surprise to Charlene. She was busy with Albert's ring when the song started. Charlene startled for a moment and than laughed.
