NEW YORK (CBS) Just one day after announcing his engagement to Charlene Wittstock, Prince Albert II of Monaco has also revealed when the wedding will take place.
The prince told French newspaper Nice-Matin that "the marriage will take place next summer."
His marriage to Wittstock will be the first marriage in Monaco of a sitting prince since.
Sources told People magazine Thursday that the couple will tie the knot in two ceremonies: an intimate civil service inside the Prince's 235-room palace, and a larger, religious one, in Monaco's Notre Dame of the Immaculate Conception Cathedral, which will be televised.
The report also states that the Prince and Wittstock's engagement took place Wednesday morning, reportedly in a small garden ceremony at the palace with only a few family members and friends in attendance.
Albert spoke about his future bride with Nice-Matin, saying that, "Sports built her values, and she has a strong personality. Her interest in humanitarian causes, especially those touching children, is an expression of her great sensitivity and openness to others."
He added that he hoped the people of Monaco would welcome her "with kindness."
