I was waiting for the Palace to release some official photos of the event but, as that has yet to happen, better to mention it now before it gets any later. Last Saturday, July 25, Pierre Casiraghi and long-time girlfriend Beatrice Borromeo were married in a small, private, civil ceremony in the Salon des Glaces at the Princely Palace in Monaco. Only about 70 close friends and family attended the ceremony though there were about 500 guests at the reception following in the palace gardens and later at the evening festivities at the Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo. Beatrice and Pierre have been together for the last seven years, she is from a very old and well-connected Italian family and Pierre, as we all know, is the second son of Princess Caroline and the late Stefano Casiraghi, nephew of Prince Albert II and grandson of Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace. The two met in Milan and are expected to have a more lavish event for the religious ceremony later in Italy on the bride's ancestral estate. We wish them all the best in their married life.
