Another Royal Wedding is on the way in Europe, this time in Monaco: Prince Albert II is finally tying the knot to Charlene Wittstock, a South African former Olympic swimmer this weekend. Many celebrities are expected to attend the lavish celebration, including politicians, fashion icons, and top names from the sporting and music world.
It will all start with a civil ceremony on Friday, while 3,500 guests will attend the religious ceremony the following day (both in the royal palace).
Guests will taste delicacies by super chef Alain Ducasse, with everything but the champagne and South African wines sourced within six miles of Monaco.
Entertainment will include The Eagles and electropop icon Jean-Michel Jarre.
The grand finale: 1001 roses will light up the night sky in a fireworks display over the waters of Monaco Bay. Nice!
