The wedding between Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene kicked off with a bang on June 28, when Charlene tried to escape from Monaco by flying home to South Africa. She made it to Nice, a few miles down the Cote D’Azur, when her passport was confiscated by the French police, and she was sent home to her husband-to-be.
According to the Daily Mail, it was third time that Charlene had tried to flee. The first time was in May, when she went to Paris to try on her wedding dress, and took refuge at the South African embassy. The second time was during the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix.
All of her escape attempts obviously made for a very happy wedding day.
