Princess Caroline of Monaco on Wednesday 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
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.
