On the morning of the civil service, a few select guests will attend a breakfast at the luxurious Fairmont Hotel in Monte Carlo, organised by the bride's Italian mother Countess Donna Paola Marzotto.

One week later on Saturday 1 August the religious ceremony, which will be a bigger and grander affair, will take place in the bride's native country of Italy.

Guests will fly over to the Borromean islands on Lake Maggiore, owned by Beatrice's family, where they will see Pierre, 27, and Beatrice, 29, tie the knot for a second time.

"I'd love if Pierre became the father of my children," Beatrice has previously said

While few details have been made public about the upcoming wedding, Dagospia has reported that the couple will most likely marry on the Isola Bella.

The island, which is a popular tourist attraction, is home to a palace, an Italianate garden and a small fishing village. It is also the same location where Beatrice's older half-sister Matilde Borromeo married Prince Antonius von Fürstenberg in June 2011.

The nearlyweds have been together for seven years after meeting at university

Pierre and Beatrice met while studying at university in Milan in 2008 and six years later Prince Albert's nephew popped the question with a pink diamond ring.

The stunning Beatrice, who is a well-known journalist and TV presenter, has previously spoken about wanting to start a family.

"I'd love if Pierre became the father of my children," Beatrice told Vanity Fair Italy. "He would be so good and I think together we could create a very stable family. But we haven't reached that point yet. At the moment we are both happy. But one day I would like the responsibility of a family."
