[h=1]C[/h] JOHANNESBURG, Sunday Princess Charlenes marriage to Monacos Prince Albert II was akin to winning the World Cup, her father Mike Wittstock told South Africas Sunday Times newspaper. Its just such a proud moment that I cannot describe. We are so happy for them, he said. It feels as if weve just won the World Cup. The South African swim champ married Albert in a civil ceremony on Friday followed by a lavish church service on Saturday, but the pageantry was dimmed by media reports on rumours that the 33-year-old had been intercepted trying to flee home to South Africa earlier in the week. I am so disappointed that people believe this nonsense. I am also very disappointed in the South African media who picked up on the story and ran with it before finding out the facts for themselves, her father told the paper. Its rubbish. I was with them the entire time until late at night. It did not happen, he said in an interview held late Friday night. The wedding was broadcast live on South African television, and the Sunday Times splashed across its front page a photo of Charlene in her veil and gown, captioned Fairy Tale.
