Royal nuptials lift Monaco's hopes

European principality eager to see couple produce a legitimate heir to the Grimaldi throne.

    It has been a 30-year wait but the European principality got a new princess when Prince Albert II married Charlene Wittstock, a South African former swimming champion 20 years his junior.

    The star-studded religious mass sealed a union that will ease the mind of royal minders and Monegasques that the couple produce a legitimate heir to the Grimaldi throne.

    With that in mind, the royal couple have already promised to make a priority of addressing that situation.
