Royal Wedding in Monaco: Charlene Wittstock Plans a Big Bash at Durban's Oyster Box
May 10, 2011By: Mary Winston Nicklin

The Oyster Box, South AfricaThe Oyster Box is legendary as one of the best hotels in South Africa. Overlooking the Umhlanga lighthouse near Durban, the hotel had a R400-million makeover two years ago, which landed it on Condé Nast Traveler's Hot List. So it's only fitting that South Africa's Charlene Wittstock, the bride-to-be in 2011's *other* royal nuptials, has chosen it as the setting for a lavish party she's throwing for friends and family who can't make it to her Monte Carlo wedding. In early July she's set to wed Prince Albert of Monaco, the "former playboy and only son of Hollywood actress Grace Kelly and the tiny principality's late ruler, Prince Rainier III." (Get this: All Monaco nationals are invited to their wedding!) What can guests expect at Charlene's shindig at The Oyster Box? A tailor-made menu with South African delicacies, designed by executive chef Kevin Joseph and paired with the best Champagne"- according to The Times Live.
