A day after the civil wedding of one-time Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock and Prince Albert II, the couple exchanged 18 carat white gold platinum rings by Cartier in the princely palace. One of the many giant screens was set up outside the palace, giving viewers the chance to see the bride in the flesh as she arrived for the Catholic ceremony. French president Nicolas Sarkozy was also given a warm reception upon his arrival. Later, large crowds lined the streets of Monaco to cheer the royal couple. More well-wishers gathered outside Sainte Devote church, where the princess left her bouquet of flowers - a Monegasque tradition. The prince and princess will join 450 guests for a multi-course dinner prepared by celebrated French-born chef Alain Ducasse.
