Not to be outshone by her royal groom, Chevallier stole the spotlight with her various outfit changes. Three outfit changes to be exact!

A trend with modern royals

; the bride chose to incorporate both traditional and modern gown designs for the festivities.

Her first gown was designed by Rosa Clara; a jumpsuit, with a lace accent across her waist. The designer took to Instagram to congratulate the couple and proudly displayed the piece worn by the bride.

On the second day, Chevallier’s cathedral dress was made of silk and lace, giving it a more traditional appeal. The dress designer, Atelier Boisanger noted that this creation took over 300 hours to compete. The flow of the lace and embroidery captured the royal sophistication embodied by Kelly over fifty years ago.

Her final look was another gown by Rosa Clara. Her modern approach to this gown included tulle draped over a short lace dress. A dress, which the designer dubbed as “unique” kept with lace theme Chevallier chose for all her dresses.

While the wedding may have been luxurious and over the top, the well wishes from family, friends and designers seem to capture the humble nature of the young royals. In a touching Instagram post that included pictures of Ducruet and his bride he thanked his family and friends for sharing the special moment with him, which read:

“Wonderful moments surrounded by the love of our family and friends, three days of celebrations thank you all for your wishes of happiness…I love you @mariehoachevallier

Family legacy plays a significant role in the lives of Monaco's young royals. According to The Monaco Matin, the couple honoured Ducruet’s late grandparents by placing flowers on their graves. Similarly, Kelly’s granddaughter, Charlotte Casiraghi who wed Dimitri Rassam on June 2019 also paid homage to her famous grandparents. On her wedding she wore a diamond necklace gifted to Kelly on her wedding day.
