On July 30, Queen Elizabeth II's granddaughter, Zara Phillips, will marry Mike Tindall. But first, there's a Monaco wedding: Prince Albert II of Monaco, 53, will marry Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock, 33.

People reports the couple is set to marry July 2 in the courtyard of the Prince's Palace in Monaco. Prince Albert said he wanted to host more friends, family and heads of state than the Saint Nicholas Cathedral - where his parents married - could hold, hence the ceremony in the courtyard.

Wittstock said they're not giving away too many details, but People reports that her dress designer is out in the open. She'll wear Giorgio Armani.

Albert's father, Prince Rainer III, married American movie star Grace Kelly as the world watched in 1956. His sisters are Princess Caroline and Princess Stephanie.
