America, like the rest of the world, got the royal fever when Catherine and Prince William wed last year. But The Royal Wedding wasn't the only royal wedding.

We tend to forget, but there are twelve different monarchies in Europe (including Vatican City, where the Pope is the "king") not to mention kings, princes and princesses across the Middle East (Queen Rania, anyone?), Asia and Africa. Then there are those, like our dear Prince Lorenzo Borghese, who are born with the royal prefix despite having no ruling power.

Which means Royal Power Couple Will and Kate will just have to scooch over and share the spotlight: there are plenty of other royals getting married all the time. Here's a look at some of our favorites who tied the knot in 2011, from the high-profile union of Prince Albert II and Charlene of Monaco to the ultra-adorable King and Queen of Bhutan.

This is our second post commemorating the royal wedding anniversary on April 29. Click here for more royal wedding coverage!

The former Olympic swimmer, who hails from South Africa, married Prince Albert II of Monaco on July 1, 2011 in a civil ceremony. There were rumors Charlene had cold feet before the wedding but the couple said "oui," got hitched and have been spotted at different affairs together over the year.
