Last year we brought you the news that Andrea Casiraghi, the son of Princess Caroline of Monaco, was engaged to Tatiana Santo Domingo, and now we have more deets about the royal wedding. A spokesperson told People that it will take place on the 31st August and will be a 'private ceremony.' That's less than a month till frock time folks.
We predict this will be a wedding worthy of a glossy editorial, after all her sister's lavish secured ten pages in US Vogue and that wasn't a ROYAL wedding. The groom is the grandson of Grace Kelly and the bride is a billionaire heires aka this is gonna be chic. It might even top Sean Parker's Game of Thrones ceremony.
To give us a clue of what's to come, we've taken a trip down memory lane to tot up the finest princess dresses EVER. So from Grace Kelly's lacy number to Lady Diana's major meringue, join us as we get somewhat wistful via the gallery above...
6 July 2012: Prince Of Monaco Announces Engagement
Tatiana Santo Domingo and Andrea Casiraghi
The second in line to the throne is due to marry the Swiss born heiress, who is the granddaughter of Colombia's $6bn magnate, the late Julio Mario Santo Domingo, next year. The loved-up couple, both 28, met whilst studying at the same school in Paris so have known each other for over seven years. Yep, this is more of a Prince William and Kate Middleton love story than a runaway bride situation. Phewf.
Indeed, Andrea's 'happy' mother ‘had the joy’ to announce the engagement in a statement released today and it's no secret the Monaco Prince is quite the catch. Not only is he the grandson of Grace Kelly, but he has been named as one of the 50 most beautiful people in the world, Forbes placed him tenth on its '20 Hottest Young Royals' list and he was crowned the most stylish royal man too. Err, have they not seen Prince Harry's blue suede shoes?!
Meanwhile, Tatiana is a fash-tastic New York socialite who was born in Geneva. She speaks five languages and has a wonderfully bohemian wardrobe, which landed her on Vanity Fair's international best dressed list in 2010. So it's no wonder the alluring brunette caught the eye of the Prince. What's more, Tatiana created the ethical retail portal Muzungu Sisters, which she heads with business partner Dana Alikhani. Does this mean another DIY bridal gown?
