Charlene Wittstock wed Prince Albert of Monaco in a ‘Diamond Spray’ tiara that had royal watchers crying ‘foul’! See what all the bridal buzz is about!
Despite ‘runaway bride’ rumors, former Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock showed up for her royal wedding to Prince Albert of Monaco looking beautiful in a traditional wedding gown by Armani Prive and down-low diamond style that had some royal watchers clucking.
Because the princess-to-be chose not to wear a diamond tiara down the aisle – a tradition that most royal brides rarely overlook, including the usually understated Kate Middleton, who dazzled in the Queen of England’s Halo tiara by Cartier for her big day.
But that doesn’t mean diamonds were a no-show. Wittstock chose a carat-heavy creation called the ‘Diamond Spray’ tiara designed by Lorenz Baumer, with 11 encrusted pear-shaped diamonds set in a floral design, according to Usmagazine.com.
The couple also exchanged 18-karat white gold wedding bands from Cartier in front of the usual royal suspects along with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, James Bond star Roger Moore, former supermodel Naomi Campbell, and veteran fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld.
