Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are set to seal their status as showbiz royalty by marrying at France’s lavish Palace of Versailles, according to a new report.

The “Stronger” hitmaker proposed to the reality TV superstar in spectacular style in October, when he got down one knee at San Francisco’s AT&T baseball park in front of a 50-piece orchestra, and it seems the pair wants their nuptials to be just as impressive.

According to Us Magazine, the couple is considering holding a wedding ceremony at the Palace of Versailles, the royal residence just outside of Paris which was once the home of big spending French queen Marie Antoinette before the French Revolution.

EXTRA: Kardashian Christmas card is terrifyingly weird

The rapper has previously said he wants an elaborate wedding, possibly including “fighter jets.”

A source tells the publication, “Kanye has never been married and wants a big (wedding). They are not working with a budget.”

Kardashian has been married twice before to Damon Thomas and basketball star Kris Humphries.

She and the rapper are parents to a daughter, North West.
