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."
Congratulations to the happy royal couple! Maybe it's time to plan a double date with Wills and Kate!
