There's a new princess in town!
Prince Albert has married his girlfriend Charlene Wittstock, who is now officially Princess Charlene.
Wearing a sky-blue jacket and skirt, 33-year-old Princess Charlene smiled as she said "I do" in the civil ceremony in the throne room of the Royal Palace in Monaco.
The couple will have a religious ceremony in a Catholic church on Saturday and the wedding celebrations are expected to cost $90 million.
Albert's two sisters, Princess Caroline and Princess Stephanie, attended the wedding ceremony.
Albert, 53, who is the son of Hollywood screen legend Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier, was embroiled in a scandal just prior to the wedding.
The French press reported that Charlene tried to leave the country and flee home to South Africa after she discovered that Albert may have fathered a third love child.
The Prince has two acknowledged children, a son named Alexandre with former flight attendant Nicole Coste and a 19-year-old daughter named Jazmin whose mother is American Tamara Rotolo.
A Paris magazine claimed that Wittstock had her passport seized to stop her from leaving the country, but the Palace denied the report. "There is no child, it's a totally false rumor and absolutely without foundations and Charlene did not go to the airport."
