Ah from one commoner-turned-princess to another, Charlene Wittstock showed up to Friday’s nuptials looking smashing. Wittstock, pictured here with her fiance Albert II, will be the next bride in a royal wedding, as she is set to marry her prince this July. Wittstock, a South African Olympic swimmer and soon-to-be royal, wore a sophisticated white chapeau and a delicate, soft blue-gray frock by Swiss label Akris. Oddly enough, Albert’s mother, Grace Kelly, is probably the most famous commoner to ascend the throne… and apparently the style inspiration Kate Middleton supposedly copied for her own wedding dress. Oh, well. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
