Billionaire CEOs, royalty, opera stars and celebrated couturiers are converging on Monaco for the nuptials of Prince Albert II and former Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock of South Africa.
The palace has long kept the guest list for the two-day-long festivities this week under wraps, presumably for security reasons.
On Thursday, the palace released a list that includes Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, U.S. soprano Renee Fleming, and the former president of El Salvador.
A host of sportsmen and women are also to attend, including swimmers, distance runners, race car drivers and tennis and rugby players.
Friday's civil ceremony and Saturday's religious ceremony are being held in the Renaissance palace that's been home to Monaco's ruling Grimaldi dynasty for centuries.
