This evening in Monaco H.S.H. Prince Albert II and his sweet fiancée, Charlene Wittstock attended their pre-wedding concert at the Stade Louis II in Monte-Carlo. The performers for the evening: The Eagles.
Well, the day is finally here when H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco will no longer be the world’s most eligible bachelor. Finally, he is lucky enough to marry former Olympian, Miss Charlene Wittstock, after dating the future princess since… forever.
Anyway, here is the information you need order for you to enjoy the lavish two-day princely wedding festivities in Monaco. If some of the links crash due to heavy traffic or simply do not work on your computer… don’t blame me. 🙂
Where to watch the wedding is my original post from June 25 regarding the links in order to watch the princely wedding online. Here are the links again:
Euronews (Here is my original post from June 26 which gives you the complete schedule for both July 1 and 2 ceremonies. It’s a good idea to use both links just in case the link from the Palais Princier de Monaco crashes due to heavy traffic.***I wouldn’t count on Euronews. Their online streaming has been wonky.***)
TV4 Play (Originally posted on June 26 when it was announced that the Swedish network would air the wedding live on July 2 only.
ZDF(Germany will only air the religious wedding beginning at 5pm in Monaco. Click to read my original report and to find out what time ZDF will begin airing their broadcast here.
France 2 orFrance 2 (You may be able to watch the religious wedding, on July 2 only, on either of these links if you live outside of France. So far, I have been able to watch all of their videos without any problem.)

THE CIVIL CEREMONY ON JULY 1, 2011:
The civil ceremony begins promptly at 5pm in the Throne Room at the Palais Princier de Monaco. Currently,Euronews will broadcast the civil wedding and will continue to stay live on air until after the Jean Michel Jarre concert ends. (source)

THE RELIGIOUS CEREMONY JULY 2:
The religious ceremony begins promptly at 5pm in Monaco. I would advise all of you to log on to the sites below at least an hour before the ceremony begins. Here, again, are the links that will air the religious ceremony:
CNN LIVE(Beginning at 9am EST. You should be able to find it.)
After the religious ceremony the couple will whiz by all the Monégasques, tourists, and reporters in their new Hybrid Lexus until the new princely couple of Monaco reach Sainte Dévote church where H.S.H. Princess Charlene of Monaco will leave her lovely bouquet.
At 9pm it is time for the lavish gala princely wedding dinner at the Opéra terraces at the Salle Garnier. At 10pm EuronewsNCwill continue their broadcast with a brilliant, yet not so environmentally friendly, fireworks show by Jacques Couturier, “…best-known producer of firework displays in France, to put on an “opera of fire” above Monaco’s harbor.” (source)
