Monaco is abuzz with news that Friday’s wedding between Charlene Wittstock and Prince Albert might not go ahead.
The rumours started after a French magazine claimed that Charlene tried to flee to South Africa last week, when she found out Albert had another illegitimate baby – who is reportedly 15 months old.
But while the world’s press speculate on whether Charlene will turn up for the wedding on Friday, the palace issued a statement robustly denying the claims and Prince Albert’s lawyer confirmed he will be taking legal action against the French magazine, adding that all is well and he was with them in Paris just three days ago.
Guests at the wedding are to include BHS boss Philip Green, Sir Richard Branson, Naomi Campbell, countless European Royals and Giorgio Armani, who has designed Charlene’s wedding dress.
Our money is on the wedding going ahead.
