That's right, Monaco is now very proud of his lovely and sweet Prince Rainier III :)

What a great man!!! He brought Monaco to attention on the world stage.
Every major decision he made (marriage ,commercial,etc) was made with the thought for Monaco's best interests behind it....
He was punctual and stood for religious principals.

Monaco must miss him terribly--you don't realize what you've got till its gone...

A well known saying is "Greatness always skips a generation"
This can be appied to the current Prince

Don't think that's true at all. I'm willing to give him a chance atleast.

The flowers w/ his initials were very pretty.

Gorgeous pictures of Rainier.

How long after Louis II's passing was Rainier enthroned? Was there an official three month mourning period? Did they have to do some kind of "passing rite" for Charlotte or was just a statement released? It was such a unique situation, I'd really enjoy as much information as everyone can share.

As I recall, no one thought much of Rainier until he married Grace and chased out Onassis. I don't recall the "Builder Prince" moniker until the 1960's. Albert at least has made some strides from the go as "the Green Prince".

I think we just need to give him a chance and see where he takes Monaco. He seems very capable when it comes down to his work. He just needs to get control of his "out of control" personal life. (ie.. illegitimate children, NC interview, CW photos.. etc)

Then people will see more clearly what he is trying to accomplish and take him more seriously. But I think he has what it takes. Its just being overshadowed by all of this tabloid nonsense.

Princess Charlotte ceded her rights to Rainier on May 30 1944.Louis II died 5 years later in Paris (he moved there in 1946) on May 9 1949.The same day Rainier became Sovereign Prince of Monaco.I found this at Wikipedia i don't know anything else sorry..

Did Charlotte cede her succession rights when she was formally adopted so that Rainier became the immediate heir apparent?

Rainier became Prince Rainier III on the day Louis II died same as Albert became Albert II on the day Rainier died though he wasn't formally Sovereign until after the three months mourning ended in early July... 12th? (though Rainier died April 6, 2005).

I'm asking if it was the same for Rainier. Louis II dying, everyone waiting three months and then Rainier's formal enthronement. Does anyone have a date for Rainier's ceremony---was it May or August?

And when/how did National Day come into play as November 19th? I know its because the patron saint for Rainier and/or Monaco has their day then, and Albert kept it for tradition (and because it was so close to his own on November 18th).

I think Rainier got better looking with the gray hair and beard. Albert is aging similarly. I thought him too boyish in his school days. If he could just make a clean line of his stomach so that he could see his shoes, Albert would be quite the looker.

Is it easier to get close to Albert because he's so boisterous or is it the times of needing openess? Rainier was a loner and kept things close to his vest, more so after Grace's passing. But the press was more polite then.
