He finally did it!
Prince Albert of Monaco married Charlene Wittstock of South Africa in a long-awaited civil ceremony on Friday.
Taking place in the Throne Room of the Palace, the bride wore a silken blue jacket and ankle-length pants created by Chanel for the ceremony. A much more elaborate event will take place on Saturday when two two will walk down the aisle again in a religious ceremony, followed by a lavish gala.
Wittstock will now be known as the Princess of Monaco and is hoping the next step will include children. She says:
"I love children and have always wanted to have children of my own. We'll see in the next couple of months or years."
