Alternatively you could choose to celebrate from any number of thrilling casinos, on the chic promenade looking out to sea or maybe a lush green manicured park with a picnic of the finest cheese, bread and wine. Celebrate the big day in the home of one of the most scintillating royal families in the world; the Grimaldis. Find flights to Nice, which is 22km from Monaco from £55.

Roman ruins, spectacular beaches, old fishing ports, medieval architecture and historic cities make Dalmatia a breath-taking location for a royal wedding break, where you can watch the big day on TV in a cosy bar while enjoying sparkling sunshine and blue seas by day. Make time to explore Croatia’s other beauties such as the mountain parks and enticing cafes of Split and the enchanting walled city of Dubrovnik (pictured above).
