Monaco's Princess Caroline announces son's wedding

The 28-year-old is to marry a half-Brazilian, half-Colombian heiress.

PRINCESS CAROLINE OF Monaco today announced the impending marriage of her eldest son Andrea Casiraghi to Tatiana Santo Domingo, a half-Brazilian, half-Colombian heiress.

The palace statement on the latest royal wedding in the tiny principality on the French Riviera  - put on the world map in 1956 when US film star Grace Kelly married its ruler Prince Rainier III – did not provide a date.

Casiraghi and his would-be wife are both 28 and know each other for seven years. He is the eldest child of Princess Caroline from her second husband, an Italian named Stefano Casiraghi, who died in an powerboat accident off Monaco’s shores in 1990.

Caroline, and her siblings Albert and Stephanie, are staple fodder for gossip and celebrity magazines in France and elsewhere.

Last year, Monaco’s ruler Prince Albert II married South African former Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock in a ceremony costing tens of millions of dollars.
