Everything You Missed At Charlotte Casiraghi’s Royal Wedding

Congratulations! Over the weekend, Monaco's Charlotte Casiraghi and French film producer Dimitri Rassam tied the knot in a civil ceremony at the Prince's Palace of Monaco. 

The pair, who have been engaged since March 2018 and have a six-month-old son together, said "I do" in a civil ceremony inside the State Apartments at the official residence of the Monegasque princely family. For the ceremony, Casiraghi donned a long-sleeved brocade minidress with bow embellishments by Saint Laurent - eagle-eyed fans noticed it was reminiscent of her grandmother Princess Grace's lace two-piece suit worn for her own civil marriage. The Prince's Palace of Monaco was also host to the Hollywood actress's wedding to Prince Rainier in 1956. 

A traditional afternoon picnic then took place, followed by a glamorous evening reception at hillside residence Villa la Vigie, boasting spectacular French Riviera views. Guests swapped the morning's outfits for all-white evening ones, with Casiraghi looking like a true princess in a white strapless Chanel gown. Her hair, styled by John Nollet, was slicked back into an elegant bob, and some enviable jewellery decorated her neck. As a nod to her grandmother, Casiraghi sported Princess Grace's dazzling Cartier diamond necklace. The late Princess received the now-iconic piece as a wedding gift, following her 1956 wedding to Monaco's Prince Rainier. 

The affair was attended by Casiraghi's whole family: her mother Princess Caroline, her brothers Andrea and Pierre Casiraghi (who said their vows in the same place), her sister Alexandra de Hanover,  her uncle Prince Albert and his wife Princess Charlene along with their children Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques. From the groom’s family, his mother, half-brother and cousin were spotted in attendance. Casiraghi and Rassam's young son, Balthazar, was also present. 

Charlotte Casiraghi, daughter of Caroline, Princess of Hanover, is eleventh in line to the throne of Monaco. But she’s more than just a royal - she’s got stints as a magazine editor, published writer, model and equestrian to her name.
