(Newser) – Another royal wedding, but not a Pippa in sight. Prince Albert II of Monaco wed former Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock in predictably lavish style. Today's pomp followed a quiet civil ceremony yesterday. Albert, 53, is 20 years older than his South African bride, and the wedding went off despite some not-so-blissful rumors flying around.

The wedding dress, as described by AP: "She wore a dress in off-white duchess silk by Giorgio Armani Prive with a dramatic boat-neck collar and a 5.5-yard-long train. With its clean lines, the dress seemed like it was channeling some of the legendary elegance of Charlene's predecessor, the late Princess Grace."
