Royals Wed Their Own Way

Posted on July 12th, 2011 by Mandy Webster

Princess Bride followed by paparazzi camerasApparently, there was yet another royal wedding this year, and I missed it. Prince Albert II of Monaco married the South African national swimming champion, now Her Serene Highness, Princess Charlene of Monaco, on July 1st. 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.

The New York Times says Princess Charlene, the “pretty and patient commoner who endured snippy tabloid gossip and in the end got her prince,” has much in common with Kate Middleton.

In both cases, the commoners-turned-royals have chosen to break with royal wedding tradition. While Will and Kate lived together before marriage, Albert and Charlene are agreeing in advance that they may divorce as soon as the pair has produced an heir. (Wait, what about the spare?) According to the Times, because “Prince Albert’s two children were born out of wedlock, they are barred by the Constitution from acceding to the throne.” Read more »

Think  you’ve got it rough when planning your wedding festivities? Well, just be glad you’re not marrying the future king of England! Not only do you have to keep your future mother-in-law happy, but you also have to consider the feelings of ‘the people’ in all of your royal wedding plans, including the bachelor party!

This morning, Good Morning America reviewed the latest details of Prince William’s bachelor party. It seems Wills laid down strict ground rules for the planning of his bachelor party.

While one might think the future King of England could do whatever he likes for his bachelor party, it is apparently not so. The ever-responsible Prince William, worried that his constituents might take offense at him enjoying an overly lavish bachelor party in the midst of a global economic crisis, apparently set a limit on brother Harry’s party plans.

Rather than enjoying an expensive weekend at a French skiing chalet, rumor has it the dynamic duo and approximately 20 of their closest friends will spend a day enjoying a variety of water sports on the English Channel before boating their way up the Thames on a long, rabble-rousing pub crawl.
