About feelings i can't blame the couple to be somewhat, well cold, at least not overjoyed. It's perfecly known, at least in some circles, that's this union is not a lovematch but a "business partnership", without doubt with a lot of friendship, affection and respect. It's their choice and we must respect that. They will maintain some high level of glittering stuff in Monaco, that's their job and royal watchers will be delighted, but don't expect tons of love from this couple.
Dont´t think Albert needs any business partnership. He was single till 53 and nothing happened, so he could easily stay single until the end of his days. His young and attractive nephew would replace him one day and would deliver amount of glitter and young family and children undoubtedly. So there was no pressure on Albert actually. When he got married, that´s because he personally wanted. And why would he marry for business when he can choose by heart?

Just noticed that Roger Moore's wife was wearing the same dress Letizia wore to Will and Kate's wedding!!!

Loved the ceremony - thought the setting was absolutely gorgeous. Charlene looked wonderful - even more beautiful in the photos! I was surprised by the lack of warmth and interaction between them during the ceremony, but I think Charlene was trying to keep her emotions in check. From the few glimpses we got I think that in private they are a very different couple.

I felt a bit sorry for Albert as it seemed the priest was giving some digs about the past events in his life - he was certainly stressing the point of fidelity!!!

I agree. We see the top royals regularly with their tiaras. But the lesser known piece are really exciting me!
I also wonder if Charlene will wear her new ocean tiara, or will she still wear the floral hair piece? Let's hope that we will see pictures of the arriving guests. It seems that they cut off the live stream.

What you have mentioned however are extremely important things, things which often are missing in many so-called lovematches. Friendship, affection, and respect are too frequently missing in marriages, it also makes for some very, very successful ones.... IMO.

I think it might have been a hymn about Sainte Dévote.
It is Couronnée d'étoiles - Nous te saluons (thanks to Lili4ka )

I totally agree ! And i didn't say this wedding will not be a successful one. In fact I do think it will be a success,a well choreographed one.

just confirmed on BBC at the moment by Monaco Officials. Prince Albert faces paternity test just after the wedding. Third child aged less than 18 months. It's official and from Monaco court. The information has been blocked until the wedding. But it was true.
