Norweigian Nrk.no also now has a video of Prince Albert´s speak:
– Jeg tror dette er den beste beslutningen jeg har tatt - Kultur-og-underholdning - NRK

Imo, not a great speech and not very directed towards the bride...

Lol I love Zara, but I second that!

Charlene looked wonderful today, she's defenitely one of my favourite princesses, so elegant and simple! I thought Albert seemed a bit cold from time to time during the wedding but perhaps that was only my imagination...

Is that a tiara or a bracelet on her hair?

This looks like the necklace she wore to the wedding of Prince Philipp von Hessen to Laetitia Bechtolf in 2006...

I thought for sure that Princess Charlene would wear a tiara. Most of the other royal ladies did wear one to the dinner gala.

Congratulations to the happy couple! It was a beautiful wedding! Charlene was more beautiful and more stilish than Kate was in the day of her wedding. There's no doubt about that! In my opinion this in the wedding of the year.

Princess Caroline in a sapphire tiara - i´ve never seen this one before is this something new? (but i don´t follow the monaco family so close so maybe she´s worn it before)

Can´t say i like Charlene´s "tiara" or should i say hair ornament - hardly visable - but otherwise she looks good

it looks like this necklace

That clip of Albert's toast, makes me see him a little bit differently. He sounded so nervous, and in the end he almost cried! I hope they will be happy together.

Interesting speech. The mention of the belgian wedding anniversary was rather unexpected and cute. Albert seemed to be rather emotional (at last) and his words comming for the heart.
On a side note Charlene's parents saw the difficulties to be among royals during a banquet and how to deal with it (but i'm sure Paola and Carl Gustaf will not mind the little faux pas seen during the toast).

They might not make many great shows of affection towards each other but when they do they seem very genuine IMO. PA seems a shy and reticent man but I think he is delighted with his bride.

BTW The hair ornament PC is wearing is very pretty but it is just that, a hair ornament, not a tiara.

Here, here. Albert would have been better off reading a prepared speech. It jumps around. And what a terrible thing to say, "you are a wonderful, sometimes patient woman, with me." Ugh.

That was an altogether egocentric speech. Nearly nothing about the virtues of the bride, only what she can give to him or tolerate him.

Isn't the groom supposed to toast the bride, not "love, peace, and harmony?" Is Albert a hippie?

Someone asked for a photo of the Liechtensteinsche satellite dish, oh well, here it is

Plus Sophie bends her neck as if she is afraid that the hat will fall off

Can i get my time between 16.30 - 19.00 back? I said that Kate and Will lacked emotions compared to Victoria and Daniels wedding, but compared to this wedding it was Spring Break.
