Jolie, Pitt wed privately at chateau in France

NEW YORK – The wait is finally over: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Hollywood’s reigning royal couple, have tied the knot.

Despite two years of feverish scrutiny, the pair managed to keep one of the world’s most anticipated weddings shrouded from the media’s glare.

When? Where? Why haven’t they yet? Did they already? The celebrity press and “Brangelina” fans alike had been consumed with the matrimonial mystery.

Then on Thursday, a spokesman for the couple quietly confirmed to The Associated Press that Hollywood’s undisputed royal couple had wed Saturday in a private ceremony in Southern France.

Jolie and Pitt exchanged vows in a small chapel at the Chateau Miraval in the Provence hamlet of Correns. Since 2008, Miraval has been their Southern France home, a sprawling estate they bought three years ago.
