The Principality's New Princess
The year 2011 marked the beginning of a new chapter for Monaco. The painful gap left by the death of American actress Grace Kelly was finally filled as Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock married SAS Le Prince Albert II on July 1st 2011. More than 400 events over 4 days were held around the municipality as Monégasques and international residents alike celebrated the couple's wedding nuptials. With her curled blonde locks and elegant sense of style, Princess Charlene's uncanny resemblance to her former mother-in-law has brought many parallels. How she'll fare as a princess in the world's most famous principality is anyone's guess.
