Charlene Wittstock Is Learning French for Fiancé Prince Albert


How do you say “fairy tale” in French?

As Charlene Wittstock’s July wedding to Monaco’s Prince Albert II approaches, the future princess says she’s living the dream – and learning her “ouis” from her “nons.”

“It’s a very exciting moment for me,” the Rhodesian-born Olympic swimmer, 33, tells Madame Figaro magazine in a translated interview. “I think any woman who is lucky to be loved by the man she loves is living a fairy tale.”

She adds: “And as for the French language, it’s probably one of the most beautiful in the world. I speak a little bit and I can follow conversations, but I think it will take time to improve myself.”

After Wittstock walks down the aisle in a Giorgio Armani Privé gown on July 2, the two, who met at a swim meet in 2000, will jet off to her homeland, South Africa, for their honeymoon.
