The eyes of the world will be on Mike Wittstock as he escorts daughter Charlene down the aisle on Saturday.
But for now, the computer-business operator is calming any nerves before the Monaco royal wedding by socialising with the locals.
He has been spotted having a drink from time to time in La Turbie, a village on the southern coast of France.
The blonde beauty's family has flown over for the grand event, which is further proof that the ‘runaway bride’ rumours are completely unfounded.
Prince Albert's fiancé was said to have tried to board a plane to South Africa last week, but was stopped by police at Nice airport.
And the Monaco palace was quick to quash these reports, deeming them "completely, completely crazy".
