It was officially declared to PEOPLE by the palace of Monaco, that Prince Albert II of Monaco is going to marry Charlene Wittstock, a former swimmer from South Africa. So, ladies, this eligible confirmed bachelor will soon change his marital status.
According to the palace Press Service, everybody is extremely happy.
The 52-year-old prince and the 32-year-old former schoolteacher haven’t set the official wedding date yet. It was reported before, that the couple was seen together in public for the first time at the Winter Olympic Games in Turin in 2006 during its opening ceremonies. Charlene Wittstock moved to Monaco in 2007 after the unofficial end of her training.
According to the royal sources Wittstock had to learn protocol there. Fortunately, she had really good tutors – the prince’s sisters, Princesses Caroline and Stephanie, and she became good friends with both of them. As the sisters say, this lady instinctively feels what they expect from her.
By the way, both Wittstock and Albert were invited to the wedding ceremony of Prince Daniel Westling, Duke of Vastergotland, and Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden. They accepted the invitation and went to Stockholm.
Just for information: Prince Albert II of Monaco has never been married before.
