Monaco celebrates royal wedding

Monaco is celebrating the marriage of Prince Albert II to Charlene Wittstock.

Following a civil ceremony yesterday, the couple enjoyed a religious wedding today, watched by 3,500 dignitaries from around the world.

The ceremony finally dispelled rumours Ms Wittstock – a former Olympic swimmer – was having second thoughts over the ceremony.

However, Prince Albert II, and now Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene both said “Oui” a service led by the Archbishop of Monaco, Bernard Barsi.

Rings of white gold and platinum were exchanged in celebration.

The princess then burst into tears as a young choir sang.

The UK was represented by Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex, the youngest son of Queen Elizabeth II.

Thousands of tourists are expected to follow in their footsteps, visiting one of the hottest tourist destinations in the world.
