Albert is not a good speaker .. he basically said Thank you Charlene for marrying me DESPITE who I am.

Charlene must know that Albert wont change his ways and that her life will be living hell if she couldnt cope.

Very similar to Grace & Rainier, they barely knew each other and their relationship was a business agreement at first, he needed a princess and she wanted a rich man and a family.

They only learned to accommdate to each other's needs years later and they learned to love each other.

For me it is clearly history repeating itself but hopefully Charlene is fully aware and doesnt believe in naive clichees about changing a man's ways.
There is some Rainier in Albert too, not only Grace.

PurePeople.com: more pics of Charlotte's arrival with her brothers, at night. The article says that Charlene has asked people to write her name in the french way: Charlène, and not Charlene anymore.

This was beautiful.

Now that I have a little time I'll have to get this off my chest.
I loved the entire thing... and even if this is going to sound not as manly as I always like to come off ... it was really just very very pretty.

First of all : the bride ... Charlene looked gorgeous.... so freakin' beautiful ... reserved, a little thoughtful ( naturallly ) and very moved. I loved the dress! Just perfect.
Albert's proud and happy and it shows ... I always liked him... he's such a great guy.
I'm more than happy for them!!!

It was actually everything I wanted it to be.

Of course I just looooooooooooved Stephanie walking in on her son's arm.

Everything the girls were wearing was amazing, pretty ... they were all gorgeous too.

It was cute ... Alex and Camille were having fun chatting. Steph and Caro as well.

It's been great to see Ernst jr. and Christian ( as I expected ) ... they were right there were they belong ... they are Albert's and Steph's nephews ... that won't change...

Pauline and Charlotte reading for their aunt and uncle ... just wonderful.

Alex and Camille for the wedding rings .... sweet.

They all still remind me of my own family. With my cousins we don't always hang out 'cause we live in different places ... but when we do it's all just fun and closeness ... like Albert's family ... they are a very tight family. They have great bond ... love it.

Steph cracked me up with her first reaction to the click song .... think she was a little taken by surprise :))))

Charlene at St. Devote .... awwwwwwwwww .... she's so freakin' sweet ...


...ok ... I'm out :)

I liked the simplicity of the area. Charlene looked really nice but in some pictures she looked like a barbie, pale and too blonde. Make up was not bad but could've been better (she didn't look as radiant as at the civil wedding).

The disappointment was that she didn't wear any earrings not even studs.

Ah poor Albert he was so nervous giving his speech.
Did anyone hear the speeches of his witness and of Charlene's father?

Yes, compared to the previous day (where she looked okay) and yesterday (where she looked very strange), the overall impression was "Where am I, and why?"

It's suits better into a French speaking country - Caroline and Stéphanie are also pronounced differently in French and in English..


Another purepeople gallery focussing on the couple:


** La princesse Charlene de Monaco craque : chaudes larmes à Sainte-Dévote **

And one about Stephanie's children:


** Pauline Ducruet au mariage : Nouvelle Charlotte Casiraghi ou nouvelle Pippa ? **

^ I think that she asked it because she wanted to show that know, she's a monegasque, and maybe even that she's not an english-spoken anymore. Monaco and France share the same prononciation, and it appears logical to me that now that she Princess of Monaco, her name is written in the monegasque/french way, as Stéphanie is.

Thanks for the links Iceflower, poor Laurent of Belgium.... If I were him, I would be soooo ashamed!!! I still don't see what made him fall.

EDIT: Charlène's wedding dress reminds me the dress she wore for Amfar Gala. I remember that everybody here admired her, in this dress, and said that it would have made an amazing dress for the wedding. Did Charlène hear us??

EDIT, again: did you notice Charlotte's mistake during her speech at the mass? She said "nous avons-t-aimé" instead of "nous avons-z-aimé". It's normal, because she seems shy, and the circunstances were stressing! But what made me laugh is Andrea's reaction. He looked at her, and looked around him, to see if he was the only one to have noticed his sister's mistake.

Charlene's tears at Sainte-Dévote

The singers were Marie-Clotilde Wurz de Baets and her daughter Juliette de Baets.

Marie Clotilde is not just a good singer, but a psychologist living and working in Monaco.

Nous avons aimé = we loved. The mistake is not in the sentence (extracted from the Holly Bible) but in the way she pronounced it: wrong link between the words, she pronounced a "t" that wasn't at the end of "avons".

There are pictures of the wedding cake and the couple's first dance on Getty Images



Today,sunday, is also the brunch for the royal guests at the palace..I hope we get pictures from that.

Btw,I take that the something borrowed that the bride wore on her hair were the diamond and platinum brooches of Princess Caroline,non?

What a beautiful wedding.
The location, the guests, the weather, her dress. Her dress is soooo stunning. Really elegant and classy and I love the veil with the jewelry at the side of her hair-do. Just perfect. She tops my list now.

That's pure speculation IMO.

Perhaps, in years to come, every TV station or hack will be accompanied by experienced lipreaders ..... but, gladly, that isn't the case - yet.

I think he said something like: It's allright

When they came out of Ste Dévote he said something like 'Shall we give them a kiss' and then repeated because she didn't hear. Then she threw a kiss at the crowd, but he wanted to kiss her.
