    Prince Albert And Princess Charlene Of Monaco Celebrate 12th Wedding Anniversary With ‘Adorable’ Photo

    Monaco royals Prince Albert and Princess Charlene tied the knot on 2 July 2011 and on Sunday, they marked the occasion with a sweet social media appearance.

    The couple’s official Instagram account shared a photo of the couple talking and gazing lovingly at each other, taken at the Sainte Devote Rugby Tournament in April.

    It was captioned: “Happy Wedding Anniversary to Their Highnesses Prince Albert and Princess Charlene.

    Fans rushed to share their good wishes, with one commenting: “Happy Wedding Anniversary to Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco. “Wish you many, many happy returns of the day. 12 years ago I watched with happiness the magnificent ceremony of your wedding, it was sublime. Princess Charlene I’ve never seen a bride as beautiful as you.”

    Others kindly added: “Happy anniversary, @ adorable royal couple,” “Joyeux anniversaire,” and: “That look though [red love heart emoji]”. The couple will likely be spending the day together with their twin children, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, who will turn nine later this year.

    Earlier in the week, though, Charlene enjoyed a night out alone as she made a solo appearance at the Golden Nymph Awards at the Monte Carlo TV Festival on Tuesday.

    The 45-year-old royal looked stunning in a floor-length navy silk gown from one of her go-to labels, Akris, which she accessorized with statement diamond jewelry.

    While Prince Albert wasn’t in attendance, the Princess was joined by Albert’s nephew, Louis Ducruet, and his wife, Marie, who welcomed a baby girl called Victoire in April.

    During the glittering ceremony, Charlene appeared on stage to present writer and producer Howard Gordon, whose credits include The X Files, 24, Homeland, and Accused, with the Honorary Golden Nymph Award.

    Meanwhile, Prince Albert attended the opening party of the festival last Friday.

    The previous week, Albert and Charlene welcomed basketball athletes to the Prince’s Palace of Monaco after they won the French Elite Basketball Championship.

    The couple were joined by their eldest child, Prince Jacques, as they posed for photographs in the palace courtyard.

    As well as the couple’s two children, the Prince has also fathered two other children from two previous romances – Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, born in 1992, and Alexandre Grimaldi-Coste, born in 2003. Neither Jazmin nor Alexandre are in the line of succession to the Monegasque throne, however, as their parents never married.

    Where did Albert and Charlene meet?

    The royal met Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock at the Mare Nostrum swimming meet in Monaco in 2000 and made their public debut as a couple at the opening ceremony of the 2006 Winter Olympics.

    In an interview with Vogue, Charlene said: “Our first public appearance was at the Turin Olympic Games in 2006. Albert put me at ease. It was clear that we shared the same passions; we both became very emotional watching the athletes. Sport is the common denominator of our lives.”

    When did Albert and Charlene get married?

    The couple announced their engagement in 2010 and their wedding in July 2011 made headlines around the world.

    The three-day celebrations began with a concert on 30 June 2011 by classic rockers the Eagles and ended with a lavish reception on 2 July attended by the guests, who ranged from the Monaco royal family to Prince Edward, with wife Sophie, and Naomi Campbell.

    A day after their civil ceremony, Charlene and Albert were married in a Roman-Catholic ceremony on July 2 in the presence of global celebrities and various heads of state.

    Charlene was the epitome of sophistication donning an off-the-shoulder Armani Privé silk gown, which took three seamstresses 2,500 hours to make.

    Who are their children?

    Princess Charlene gave birth to twins, Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques, on 10 December 2014 at The Princess Grace Hospital Centre in Monaco.

    Despite being younger than his twin sister, Prince Jacques is the heir apparent to the Monegasque throne as the crown passes according to male-preference cognatic primogeniture.
