The crowds outside the chapel of Ste Devote who welcomed the royal couple for the final part of the religious ceremony brought an air of informality after the solemnity of the courtyard service.
And fans of the pair were eager to show their appreciation.
‘I’m really very happy for the couple. It’s great for us in Monaco to have a couple so kind, beautiful and intelligent. It’s fantastic.’ said one wellwisher.
Another added: ‘I hope that they have many children and an heir as soon as possible. They’re a couple who mean a lot to us, peace, togetherness and difference. So I am very happy for Monaco.’
And so the flags have been fluttering in full-swing for the newlyweds, and the people of Monaco have made no secret of the fact.
