There were reports that their wedding cake might not be as extravagant as Prince Rainer’s when he married Grace Kelly.
But it appears that Prince Albert of Monaco and his bride Princess Charlene definitely pulled out all of the stops, when they got married in July 2011, by ensuring their cake came out tops.
The five tier cake was truly exceptional and dwarfed the couple as they stood next to it and prepared to cut a much smaller version for their guests.
Always keen to pay homage to her roots Princess Charlene ensured the cake was also decorated with Proteas, South Africa’s national flower.
