Bono and Wife Toast 20 Years of Bliss

By Paul Martin

Twenty years after they got married, U2's Bono and wife Ali are having a royal wedding anniversary.

The couple have been partying with Prince Albert of Monaco as they enjoy a romantic break in St Tropez.

Bono, 42, and Ali, 41, were invited by the prince to enjoy a few days on his luxury yacht at the exclusive Nikki Beach resort. The pair will have been married for 20 years next Wednesday and are already celebrating the achievement in style.

Guitarist The Edge and Bono's pal Jean Roch also dropped by to enjoy the celebrations along with Prince Albert, who is a big fan of U2.

A pal of the rocker said yesterday: "They have been having a great time and everyone has come along to congratulate them.

"They absolutely love St Tropez and it is the perfect romantic place for them to spend some time together.

"They have been keeping a low profile and just relaxing together. Every night they go out for dinner and a few glasses of wine. Bono even decided to go for a dip in the sea on one occasion and he has been really unwinding after months touring."

The source said Bono has been doing his best to keep under cover for most of the trip, wearing a hooded top and his trademark dark glasses.

The source added: "But it's difficult to stay anonymous when you're one of the most recognisable men in the world.

"They stayed a couple of nights on Prince Albert's yacht and he even joined them for dinner.

"The Edge has also been hanging around with them and out partying at night."

Bono has just returned from a mission to Africa to highlight the plight of millions of children who have Aids.

Despite the star's frantic schedule his relationship with Ali remains one of the strongest in showbiz.

Bono said: "She is the light of my life.

"She gets more perfect the longer we are together. I am completely in love with her."

U2 will be back in action next year with a new album in the pipeline and a rumoured world tour.
