The wedding of Prince Albert and Charlene Wittstock is a prestigious affair – the biggest event to hit Monaco since Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly tied the knot more than 50 years ago.

Nothing is being left to chance and, of course, food is a top priority.

World-renowned celebrity chef Alain Ducasse was commissioned by the couple to create a lavish grand finale dinner on Saturday.

Euronews gained access to the kitchens to find out more about the menu.

“We have the best products, perfect teams, beautiful weather, magnificent fish, it will be delicious, voila. We’re going to try to do something just magnificent,” said Ducasse.

Mr Ducasse, who holds an impressive 19 Michelin stars, has brought in a 350-strong team of trusted aides to work on the mysterious culinary masterpiece.

“What are we going to eat? I don’t know yet,” he told euronews. “What we will serve up will depend on what we catch, same goes for the vegetables.”

The reception will take place on the seaview terraces of the Opera House, and only three people – Mr Ducasse, the Prince and Miss Wittstock – know what to expect on the menu.

As far as the wine is concerned, guests will be able to indulge in some South African delicacies in honour of the bride.
