Prince Albert and Charlene Wittstock Engaged!

Prince Albert and Charlene WittstockSorry gals, but Prince Albert of Monaco is officially off the market.

Okay, so you may not have been totally pining for him (except for the whole "prince" thing), but he has announced his engagement to girlfriend Charlene Wittstock.

The beautiful bride-to-be is from South Africa and is a former Olympic swimmer. The couple first appeared in public together at the Winter Olympic Games in 2006 and she's been living in Monaco since 2007.

Though the prince has two children out of wedlock, they are not eligible for the throne due to Monaco's law (child has to be a direct legitimate descendant), so I can only assume we'll hear some baby news soon after the wedding bells have stopped ringing. Gotta keep that royal lineage going.

Charlene is being taught proper royal protocol from his sisters Stephanie and Caroline. My only thought is, best of luck to Charlene if she's being taught protocol by wild child Stephanie.

Best of luck to them!

What do you think of this royal engagement?
