Was Albert and Charlene at the wedding? It would be odd if they missed it as Albert was so close to Pierre when he was growing up.

There's no pictures of either of them from this weekend, so it would appear not. Albert has been away on business in his role as committee member for the Olympics. They were at last week's civic ceremony.



I hope there is at least one group shot from the religious ceremony released showing all the immediate members of the family.

In society circles this wedding was not even close to the most expensive wedding.

i can't wait to see pictures of all 6 of beatrice's gowns. so far she look splendid in the ones we've seen! i was sure she wouldn't disappoint. interesting though that she chose no tiara. i wonder if she used one for the wedding party.

what on earth was mette marit thinking with that dress of hers though? it's plain awful.

interesting mix of guests, from norway and luxembourg royals, to lana del rey, to the italian vogue editor... i was expecting claire and felix to go as pierre and beatrice attended their wedding some years back, but didn't know haakon and MM were close to the bride and groom. maybe they met through franca sozzani?

I could not see other known members of Marzotto family than Marta and paola in the photos. The tax evasion scandal has divided the family to the point that they won't attend?

Including security, Prince William's wedding cost over £20m or around 34 million US dollars. Still not much by royal standards I guess.

I was bad in my explanation.
I meant the most expensive wedding for a non royal Couple .

Of course for Princes William, Willem Alexander , and recently in Sweden whose parents and grand mother are reigning Royals the attendance was the best .

If ever there was a wedding that cried out for a Hello /Hola special, this is it. I hope they devote lots of pages to it and get a few exclusives.

Wasn't Maria, aka Diamante, Paola's sister photographed next to Marta outside the hotel in Stresa? The two sisters look drop dead like each other.

BTW, Debbies and other Italian posters, there's a funny article about the wedding on dagospia website.

Athina has devoted herself to a private life consumed with her horses and family. She makes rare appearances at society weddings,

The Casiraghi-Borromeo wedding was glamorous but by no means "the most expensive". The wedding of the Prince of Orange, back then in 2002, did cost (all posts included) around 22 million Euro (!). Pierre and Beatrice really do not come even close to that.

I have no idea how much it cost, frankly none of us really knows. But the week-long nuptial celebrations of Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo celebrated in Monte Carlo and Lago di Maggiore in settings of unprecedented beauty and wealth were by far the most glamorous I have seen in many years. It united aristocracy, Royalty, the worlds of high fashion and finance, and old money. There was, God be praised, not even a hint of Hollywood present.

And the absolute undisputed star of the show was the gorgeous bride, descendant of one of Italy's most ancient aristocratic dynasties.

It was, for me at least, the real Wedding of the Year, far surpassing the Swedish Royal wedding in June despite it's Volvo cars with leather interiors.
