England’s Royal Family may have been the talk of the year but Prince Albert of Monaco doesn’t stay far behind when it comes to lavish nuptials and media highlights.
According to PEOPLE.com, Prince Albert and his bride-to-be, Charlene Wittstock, are set to exchange vows at an al fresco religious ceremony next year.
It was announced by the palace Wednesday, where the July 2, 2011 service will take place in the Palace’s Court of Honor.
PEOPLE.com also reports that a spokesperson confirmed the “religious ceremony will be held at 5 p.m. in the courtyard where we have the long staircase in an open-air event.” Straying a bit from tradition, the palace gates will be left open and giant television monitors will be set up to allow some 4,000 people to view the wedding ceremony.
The pair announced their engagement this past summer.
