THERE wasn’t as much buzz surrounding the Royal Wedding of Prince Albert II of Monaco and former Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock as the wedding of Will & Kate, but it was a grand affair nonetheless.
Despite a huge scandal (several weeks ago controversy surfaced when it was reported that Albert, who has already fathered two illegitimate children, would once again have to go through a paternity test for a third) Charlene went ahead and married Albert in a Catholic ceremony attended by over 800 guests.
Charlene’s Armani Prive gown was encrusted with 40,000 Swarovski crystals, 20,000 mother of pearl tear drops and 30,000 stones in gold shades.
The five-metre long train was made from 20 metres of silk tulle, which took 100 hours to make.
Here’s a look at the dress, and what other royals and guests wore to the ceremony:
