After years of waiting on the part of the Princess-to-be, amid speculation and rumors, Albert and Charlene finally took their vows in front of almost all of their 7,810 adult Monegasque subjects at the Grimaldis’ medieval palace.

So, I was relieved to finally see Catherine in her delicate, simple, yet elegant royal wedding gown, in which she could actually move and breathe. Let’s just hope the dress is indicative of a lovely, livable, long marriage to come! Read more »
