Albert, 53, who is the son of Hollywood screen legend Grace Kelly, will wed Wittstock, 33, amid a back-drop of scandals swirling around the couple.

Albert and his bride-to-be attended a free public concert by The Eagles Thursday night at the Louis II stadium amid rumors in the French press that Charlene had been getting cold feet.

A Paris news magazine even claimed that bride-to-be Wittstock had her passport seized to stop her leaving the country after she tried to catch a flight at Nice Airport but these claims were denied by the Prince’s lawyer Thierry Lacoste.

He said: “There is no child, it’s a totally false rumor and absolutely without foundation and Charlene did not go to the airport.”
