Prince Albert And Charlene Announce Wedding Dates!
One of most highly anticipated royal weddings of the last half century is to take place in Monaco on July 9.
That's the date when the principality's sovereign Prince Albert will walk down the aisle with South African Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock.
"The prince's palace announced that the religious marriage of His Royal Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco and Miss Charlene Wittstock will be celebrated on Saturday, July 9, 2011," a palace statement said.
"A civil marriage will be held the previous day, Friday, July 8, at the prince's palace," it continued.
Since announcing their engagement the couple have looked more contented and relaxed than ever.
The usually reserved duo set the flashbulbs whirring by dancing wildly at an Iggy Pop concert recently and making a glamorous appearance at an exclusive polo fixture in Britain.
New wedding date!
The Princely Palace has announced today that the wedding dates have changed!
Instead of July 8th and 9th, the wedding will take place one week earlier on July 2nd and 3rd!
