Louis Ducruet shared a short video on his Instagram account featuring highlights of one of Monaco’s most memorable events in 2019.
Monaco’s royal family celebrated last summer the wedding of Grace Kelly’s grandson Louis Ducret and his longtime partner Marie Chevallier with a religious ceremony held at Monaco Cathedral. Their love story began back in 2011 when they met as university students and described their romance as “love at first sight.”
The couple arrived to the church in a vintage white Rolls-Royce adorned with flowers. It was Louis’ choice to unite with Marie in the Cathedral of Monaco. The last members of the royal family to celebrate a wedding in this church were none other than Louis’ grandparents Prince Rainier III of Monaco and Grace Kelly in April 1956.
The young man was very attached to connecting with the presence of his grandfather: “I admired seeing him talking to people, being so natural and sensitive to everyone at the Palace,” he recalled. The couple also moved to Monaco, after living in the United States for their studies. “It was the best solution for us.”
Accompanied by family
On the wedding day, the newlyweds were surrounded by the family of the bride and the family of the groom including Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene, Princess Stephanie and her former husband Daniel Ducruet who she divorced in 1996.
Remembering the best day of this 2019 year! Surrounded by family and friends ❤️ Excited to start this new year with the person I’m proud to call my wife ❤️ I love you
When asked last year if having a baby was part of their future projects, Louis and Marie wished to wait a little longer. However, the young couple are the happy owners of the adorable pet pooch Pancake who was also one of the special guests at their wedding.
