Charlene does have a very delicate tiara in her hair tonight. If you check out some pictures it doesn't show much on one side of her head, but it shows more on the other side. It's sort of woven into her hair.

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?
I agree with every word!

I totally missed this wedding!

So does anyone have clips of the nieces speaking...did everyone speak...Alexandra, Camille, Pauline and Charlotte?

As I said I totally missed this wedding but I have read every page and I am very much reminded when people complained about the lack of emotion and coldness of William and Kate's wedding. While I certainly hate to bring up comparisons, I would encourage ALL who think this wedding was emotionless to (if you can find it) watch the wedding again. The 2nd time I watched the William and Kate wedding, you can VERY MUCH see the emotion (the smiles, glances and affection between the two). When something is going on (and it sounds like a lot was going on), sometimes things manage to slip by you. Perhaps that is the case with Albert and Charlene.

On the other hand, if you very much doubt the sincerity of this couple or the reasons for their marriage, than I don't think you will find it. To be honest, if you are looking for a reason to be negative or something to be wrong, its easy to find something to support your train of thought.

That being said, I do wish Albert and Charlene all the happiness in the world. As I have stated in the past, these are two grown adults who know the deal. From the little touches I have seen, they do seem to have comfortable and loving relationship based on something that works for them. Many passionate weddings that you could see the fire from a mile away, ended up dying a quick death. What's the saying...fire burns itself out?

I wouldn't be surprised if Albert and Charlene surprised us as well. But we shall see.

Beautiful wedding dress - perfectly suited to her. Breathtaking impact - and excellent make-up! She clearly worked with professionals.

I have to agree with others who say that she tops all other royal brides thus far this year - though every bride is special on their day, of course.

Charlene has authenticity (is the word I'd use), as does Albert. This is a mature marriage. They're not trying to impress us, 'sell' us on them - just do what's in front of them. While I can understand some not being impressed by Albert's speech - I felt as though I was listening in on a family wedding - there was a lot of honesty in what he said and between the lines of what he did say. He was addressing family and friends - it was touching - he was glued to his notes and yet rambled. I think he was nervous - and realized how close he came to losing her.

I wish them well.

Exactly.
I think if someone has an opinion its their opinion and we should respect it. I personally did not like the lack of emotion at Will and Kates wedding but thats just my opinion. I loved the emotion and love between A&C.

So,where are the fireworks and the cake?
I'm looking around for the dinner pictures but alas,I can't find any.

btw,my favourite person at this wedding is Princess Alexandra of Hannover..what a lovely child,always looking happy and she looked as she thoroughly enjoyed this event.Lovely poise and good posture for a pre-teen.She obviously inherited it from her mother,Princess Caroline.

Very interestingly worded speech. He appeared to be saying a lot between the lines. I agree that Charlene's mother is very pretty and they could pass for sisters much less mother daughter.
