Whether invited, we cannot say. They did not attend, however.

Princess Claire really looks like a Princess - dignified, with a nice smile, nothing over the top.

I didn't like how he was so mean to her when she was sobbing, not even crying in the chapel.

Thank you, LadyFinn, I had been searching for the complete wedding, but in the meantime I enjoyed watching Andrea Bocelli sing over & over again ad infinitum "Ave Maria" ~ ~ as well as this clip of both the civil & religious ceremonies ~


Lol, I'm still trying to get my sea legs back after the exhausting but equally exhilarating week we just had. In fact I think I'm finally over the jet leg. But if I had to do it all over again I would without question! :)

Still, after all the excitement leading up to the big event, it does feel a bit sad though now that's it all over, but on the other hand I don't think I could handle another wedding. Ye gods!

ETA: one more thing, I so wish we would have had just a teeny tiny bit of footage of the cutting of the cake and the Ball, as we did at Victoria & Daniel's wedding last year. Nothing compares to actual live footage versus photos. Yet, I respect their privacy, and am grateful for footage of the civil & religious ceremonies, but the greedy side of me so wanted to see the couple take their first dance as man & wife, as well I would have loved to see what Charlotte's exquisite Cinderella Dress looked like in real time. Just the glimpse I got of it reminded me of sugar plum fairies, balls, princes, royal coaches and dreams....

But do we know why he fell? Was it just a trip? One of those things? It looks like it was a fairly hard fall.

Question: The Prince's full name is Albert Aexandre Louis Pierre, yet the Archbishop called him Albert Alexandre during the wedding. Any reason why he would drop the last 2 names?

I am not sure which board it was on, maybe GREMB, but there have been short clips showing the cutting of the cake and the first dance. This clip has some of it as well.

Lynette Wittstock was born in 1957, so she's a year old than her son-in-law

Wrong. She's got an ENORMOUS wreath of diamonds all along the back of her head. How are people missing that?

The man standing next to Albert earlier in the ceremony was his first cousin and best man,
John B Kelly III.

Yesterday at the civil ceremony , his best man was his other first cousin, Chris Le Vine.
The best man was Chris LeVine for both ceremonies not JB.

I was under the impression that Chris Levine was the best man for the civil ceremony and John Kelly III for the religious ceremony.

Found another cute part after rewatching the ceremony: Charlene asked Albert in the Palatine Chapel how she should sign the register. It is confusing: Am I Charlene de Monaco or Charlene Wittstock at this moment

Perhaps I am just conditioned to otherwise but 76 degrees outside would be paradise where I am in the Southeastern United States. It was 95 degrees most of this past week. I always carry a fan in my purse which frequently amuses others (but they usually ask to borrow it).

I found a couple of video reports showing first dance, cake cutting, fireworks etc. Don't forget that both can be enlarged by clicking on the square at the bottom of the screen on the right hand side. Enjoy!

Like Rainier when he married. I used to wonder where all his medals came from since Monaco did not have an army.
