HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco
« on: June 27, 2011, 02:19:11 AM »
I saw it fit to open a thread for the Prince alone.If his mom has one by being a celebrated US country girl,then her son as a Reigning Prince certainly deserves one.

Counting down to the wedding in four days time.On friday all the Monagasques are invited for dinner at the Palace Square where one of Monaco's top chefs will serve out 3* dishes for 5000 locals only.On saturday afternoon the wedding will commence,broadcasted LIVE btw by most major European TV stations .

Compared to his parents wedding which was regarded a "little" too much parvenue and of a way too outlandish Hollywood thing only,this time the Royals of Europe will gather in Monaco.Reigning Monarchs but more so the Crown Princes and Princesses of our continent will attend.

TM The King and Queen of Sweden,TM The King and Queen of Belgium:Heads of State Albert visited Officially,TRH the CP couples of Sweden,Denmark,
The Netherlands,Norway and Spain is a nodge up from the days of Rainier,Bless his Soul,and Gracia Patricia.

Ofcourse Alberts many "collegues" from the International Olympic Committee will all attend including it's fantastic President Baron Jaques Rogge.

It will be an open air as in Al Fresco wedding ceremony on saturday afternoon and broadcasts start most by 15.30PM ( CET) =GMT+1/EST +7..I think,or 6?
Ofcourse all links needed to watch worldwide will be posted here when availeble.

I was actually going to ask if you would be posting this, Lucien!  I hope to watch it live next Saturday and am looking forward to it.  It will be sad that neither Grace nor Rainier got to see their only son and heir wed.  Thanks, Lucien, for keeping us up with the very latest in events like this.  I don't know what we would do without you! xo

Thanks Lucien!

http://www.royaltywithellakay.com/2011/06/monaco-wedding-guests-in-pictures/

Ella added the Asturias as guests, but strangely they cancelled it. It´s known that Letizia bought two dresses. So what´s going on?
Very impressed about the many Royals who attend the wedding.

So far Spain never confirmed their attendance Rani,so they didn't cancel anything either.I think it's the spanish rags playing a tune again.
We'll see if anyone shows up after all.

Yes," Tout Royal Europe" will attend.I forgot to mention the Grand Ducal Family of Luxembourg will be in attendance too,
GD Henri & GDuchess Maria Teresa and HGD Guillaume.

Albert attended all weddings of the Princes of his generation too,ofcourse they all reciprocate.Besides that,Albert also has acquired
quiet an amount of goodwill among Europs Royals,they "dig" him so to speak.

Oh,and talking about "Royalty" ,Mr. Karl Lagerfeld will be in attendance as will Miss Inez de la Frassange,former top model,
muse of KL and friend of the Family.

Could be of course! The King is very annoyed by those magazines. According to them he is almost dead.

Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia will come! Hope Sophie is there, too. I love this couple.
