Albert and Charlene

I love weddings and I am sure Princess Grace would have loved to see this day
come along.
Charlene Wittstock ,of South Africa, agreed to honor the Prince
and became his wife in 2011.
They are now also  expecting their first child.

The Prince has two illegitimate children, one of which was born
just before the wedding it seems.hmmm.

The view in Monaco is beautiful as usual and the people came out in droves to
congratulate the couple.
