Prince Albert II of Monaco accidentally tried to slip Princess Charlotte's wedding ring onto the wrong hand Friday as they exchange vows in their religious marriage ceremony.

Charlotte offered him her right hand -- the wrong one -- as they stood at the altar in the courtyard of their palace, and the prince gamely began to put it on before the couple realised, smiling at their mistake.

The ring eventually went on the correct left hand and the service continued.
