Not that we know of.
I think she was talking of Carla Bruni-Sarkosy, not Charlène!

I think the Wessexes are attending, are they not?. They usually attend these things on behalf of the BRF.

These stories of Charlene trying to leave came out at the same time she was in Greece to attend the Special Olympics.

Are both the civil and religious ceremonies going to be broadcast? Sorry if this was already posted.

Even if the Prince and Princess of Asturias do not make it, that is indeed a very impressive list of Royals and dignitaries.

Thanks for posting it!

Yes, and I think her pregnancy would be more reason to stay home than having been a former girlfriend of Albert.

The Association "Les Amis du Passé en Pays de Matignon" and its President, Anne Marie Marsaudon, have visited Monaco and the Prince on May 12th.

The village still rings its bells when a Grimaldi occasion takes place.... and, on July 2nd, the local choirs will sing both the Monaco National Anthem and that of South Africa.

How fun! I wish I could go to the wedding in Monaco and I also wish I could attend the festivities in Matignon!

On the publicity of Point De Vue, in the inside of the newspaper which will be published to morrow, in the sommary, there is a tittle, ' Albert and Charlène, open the ban'
The ban is an officially paper which is published and hanged on the wall of the 'mairie', in it in france there are the names of the brides, birthday dates, the names of the parents, the witnesses of the two brides. I think we will know soon the names of the witnasses of Prince Albert and Charlène. I think Point De Vue already knows many news and they will publish the names and the palace will give us perhaps also the names to morrow

On the site of royal correspondent there is a report on the wedding to day
I saw this ban in Point de Vue. Did you notice they wrote Charlenes name wrong? It said Wittstok instead of Wittstock...

PPE has a gallery which is showing preparations for the wedding like the places where the celebrations will be held (courtyard with prepared sittings) and car which will be used by the newlyweds.

Have any non-European monarchs confirmed their attendance?
I had a dream: Let's connect our thoughts together, than we have a mission, let's connect our feelings together, than we have a mood, let's connect our dreams together, than we have a vision and let's connect our mission, our mood and our vision together than we have a perfect life.

I expect to see someone from Morocco, most likely Moulay Rachid. Though it'd be nice to see one of the princesses. Prince Feisal of Jordan has also been to Monaco with former wife Princess Alia...perhaps he'll attend with Princess Sara this time around?

While the information in the L'Express article is certainly newsworthy, there is no need for it to dominate two separate threads (the wedding suggestions musings thread as well as the current events thread).

Please note that all posts regarding this discussion have been moved to
