Monaco's Prince Albert II and South African swimmer Charlene Wittstock wedded on Friday at a lavish civil ceremony, attended by about 4,000 of guests.

The wedding will be followed a day later by a religious ceremony at the royal palace on the Mediterranean.

Charlene Wittstock, who took part in the 2000 Sydney Olympics, will become Her Serene Highness, Princess Charlene.

Charlene succeeds Hollywood beauty Grace Kelly, who wed Albert's father Prince Rainier III in 1956 and died in a car accident nearly three decades ago.
