Jean Michelle Jarre concert for Princess Charlene

Saturday July 2, 2011

It was a fitting end to a spectacular day.

The sky was awash with brilliant explosions of colour and the air filled with pulsing electronic beats.

And in front of an amazing 60-metre wide stage, the people of Monaco had come together to celebrate the dawn of a new era – one ushered in by the civil wedding of Prince Albert and Princess Charlene.

The couple - who tied the knot in the palace's Throne Room - were finally able to let their hair down at a free concert, thrown for them by electro pop pioneer Jean Michel Jarre.

They joined him on stage at the start of the concert to salute their public, making their entrance with their hands tightly clasped.

Charlene told the crowd: "Thank you for all your love and support.

"I will cherish this moment forever."
