Wedding of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco and Miss Charlene Wittstock : Change of the dates (August 2010)

The Princely Palace has recently announced that the dates for the wedding of Prince Albert II and Miss Charlene Wittstock have been changed and will now be July 2 and 3, 2011.

This change was motivated by two reasons, on one hand the meeting of the International Olympic Committee in Durban from July 5 to July 9, 2011 and on the other hand because the Prince wanted the first trip of the future Princess to be to South Africa, her country of origin.

The Prince, who has been a member of the International Olympic Committee since 1985, participated five times in the Winter Olympic Games with the bobsledding team of Monaco. Miss Charlène Wittstock competed for South Africa in the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia.
