Pierre Casiraghi’s ‘informal’ wedding
Prince Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo are planning an “informal” wedding.
The son of Caroline, Princess of Hanover and the daughter of Countess Donna Paola Marzotto are set to tie the knot later this week and his uncle Prince Albert of Monaco has revealed the pair are taking a relaxed approach to the nuptials, despite the rumoured guest list of 700 people.
He shared: “The wedding service will be in the palace’s salons, then a garden party – because Pierre and Beatrice want it that way.
“It’s going to be a summer garden party. A finger-foods-for-lunch thing, with buffet tables and drinks. There’ll be places for guests to sit, but it’s going to be mostly informal.”
The pair are set to have a civil ceremony next Saturday (25.07.15) before jetting off to Italy for a religious wedding on the Borromean Islands.
Revealing more details about the big day, Prince Albert told PEOPLE magazine: “There’ll be some local folklore dancers and music. And, we’ll play some pétanque. It’s a light fete and I will give a toast.
“I’ll try and keep it short and not bore everybody, have them feel I ran on and on, which will be hard because I really like both Pierre and Beatrice.”
