Posing ahead of her marriage to Prince Albert, former Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock exudes movie-star style and glamour in a series of stunning black and white photographs.

Seen alongside her fiancé, who is sharply dressed in a suit and tie, the bride appears radiant and every inch a future princess in the collection of striking images.

The couple were shot by Chanel's creative director Karl Lagerfeld – a close friend to the Monegasque royal family.

He is a favourite with Albert's sister, Princess Caroline who frequently wears Chanel and has been photographed with her children by the 77-year-old couturier on a number of occasions.
