To a South African swimmer!

Prince Albert of Monaco
is engaged to Charlene Wittstock, a former Olympic swimmer for South Africa. She will be the first crown princess since Grace Kelly‘s death in 1982.

Pretty big deal considering Albert was a notorious bachelor, causing Parliament to change the constitution in 2002 to allow one of his sisters’ sons to take the throne if he doesn’t produce an heir!

He does have two children, but they were born out of wedlock so they are not allowed to assume the throne.

Looks like Charlene better get ready to make some babies!

Congrats to the couple!
