Pierre Casiraghi ranks high (lucky number seven) in Monaco’s line of succession. So when Pierre wed Beatrice Borromeo, an Italian heiress, all of Monaco’s royalty turned out in their finest fashion, reported People.
Casiraghi and Beatrice met at Milan’s Bocconi University, dating for seven years before their royal wedding day, which took place at Monaco’s Pink Palace.
Those in attendance included Prince Albert, who is Pierre’s uncle, as well as Princess Caroline, Casiraghi’s mother. In addition, Pierre’s side of the family was represented by Andrea and Charlotte Casiraghi, together with Andrea’s wife, Tatiana, and Charlotte’s boyfriend, Gad Emaleh.
In addition to the civil ceremony, many more flocked to a garden party themed to resemble a carnival that was held in the gardens of the Palace. And while that scene was far from intimate, the newlyweds also plan to have a private reception.
In addition, Pierre’s mother is planning an intimate dinner for both Casiraghi’s and Beatrice’s family members. Those who will attend the royal dinner at the Hotel de Paris include Princess Stephanie, Camille Gottlieb, and Jazmin Grace Grimaldi.
A religious ceremony on a private island owned by the Borromeo family will take place next weekend, and Pierre and Beatrice will prepare for it in Italy. That island is reported to be either the Isola Bella or the Isolino di San Giovanni.
In getting married, Casiraghi and Beatrice are combining two highly respected Italian noble families. And they’re not alone in creating a Monaco royal wedding to remember.
In addition to Pierre and Borromeo, Monacco royal weddings that stood out in history may have reached its pinnacle when Grace Kelly wed. Casiraghi is Kelly’s grandson, reported the Observer.
When Prince Rainier III and beloved, elegant actress, Grace Kelly, married in 1956, they appealed to the hearts of everyone from movie goers to royalty watchers.
Grace’s oldest daughter, Princess Caroline, then followed her mother’s lead. Although Caroline is now wed to third husband Ernst August, Prince of Hanover, her first royal wedding was to the famed French banker Philippe Junot in 1978.
Follow that wedding up with a third famous wedding in Monaco that almost became infamous. When Prince Albert II planned to marry Charlene Wittstock, the former Olympic swimmer reportedly attempted to become a runaway bride prior to the ceremony. However, they did finally tie the knot in 2011.
And to those in the United States feeling deprived, the equivalent of a royal wedding in this nation recently took place. When Jennie Garth of Beverly Hills, 90210 married David Abrams. The ex-wife of Peter Facinelli had her own noble reality TV pal, Tori Spelling, by her side, as the Inquisitr reported.
