Pierre's uncle, Prince Albert, and his aunt, Princess Charlene, are expected to attend, as are the groom's mother, Princess Caroline, brother Andrea Casiraghi and sisters Charlotte Casiraghi and Princess Alexandra of Hanover. On Beatrice's side, there are a number of counts who will attend. Most intriguingly, her three half-sisters, the Countesses Isabella, Lavinia andMatilde, who've married into Italian and German nobility, as well as the Fiat-Chrysler fortune. 

Beatrice modeled for both Cavalli and Chanel as a teen. She’s also an heiress to the Italian fashion manufacturer Gruppo Marzotto, which has owned Valentino and Hugo Boss. Pierre also shares a flair for style. He's the grandson of fashion icon and Hollywood royalty Princess Grace Kelly. At 6' 2", he’s considered one of Europe's best-dressed men. In 2013, he and actor Jeremy Irons modeled for Berluti shoes, posing for photographer Jean Baptiste Mondino.

 

 

The Aug. 1 religious ceremony will be held on the Borromeo islands, a group of islands in Northern Italy owned by the bride's family since the 17th-century. Famed English novelist Edith Wharton described the Borromeo islands and its gardens as "anchored in a lake of dreams."
