Going ahead to another post...if it's a hotel room, okay, but sheesh, he packs even more than I do!!! Oh, I think the residences could use a remodel. I read somewhere once that Princess Grace remodeled in the late 70's and nothing really has been done since then. Have to leave my own imprint. I've already got ideas going...

I don't like being cold so the heat is a done deal. (Is PA a polar bear???? Compared to me, he's a big guy...likes the cold...could possibly cause physical pain when showing affection...I dunno...just wondering.)

So let's see, the to-do list includes:
1. Wardrobe overhaul (top priority: new tux)
2. Residence remodel (top priority: new heating system)
3. Improve food at social functions (healthier, improve taste)

What else am I missing? Oh, yeah, provide an heir.:p

I don't think he needs a wife...he needs Martha Stewart.
I deleted a piece. Nothing wrong with the rooms Grace decorated they are beautiful and tasteful as she was. If there is nothing wrong with them there is no need to waste money decorating when people are starving around the world. If Albert being who he is and using it for an expedition to the Poles to draw attention to the problems of the polar ice caps melting then I'll get long johns and woolly's jump on his sled of huskies and let him yell mush. After the dogs are fed and settled in we'll snuggle in under the covers ourselves. Sounds like a second honeymoon adventure to me. Sorry Albert's already married I don't believe in divorce besides I am still in love with him after all these years. :p

OK I know she also handles the positive stuff too. But there is nothing happening !!! Neither good or bad !!! Paca and you Monegasques!! What is happening in Monaco? Do you have snow? Earthquakes? (Vulcano outbrakes?:o ) Storms? Ocean flooding over the streets? Cars flying into the ocean because of storm? Yachts flying around?
Oh btw there is an old legend that during the great flood MacNeil had his own boat why he wasn't mentioned in the story of Noah and the ark. And my Nana whose wedding band I have on my index finger where Jews use to wear them, her name was MacNeil. MacNeil comes from Niall of the Nine Hostages King of Ireland said to be responsible for kidnapping Saint Patrick. And there is another legend of a dove coming from the mouth of Saint Devote and it lead her boat up to the shores of Monaco. Stay tuned for the continuing saga as to why Albert II of Monaco, hasn't publicly acknowledged marriage to anyone. So fasten your seat belts, put on your safety goggles, grab your life vests and Dramamine if you get sea sick it could get choppy with white caps since the polar ice caps are melting.

Here comes the article. Unfortunately it had to be less than 200KB so you can hardly see what is on it.:( If the moderators can make an exception I can post it in a much better size (498KB or even 1000KB).
Can you post a bigger image of the scan? It is way too small.. It's so hard to see the writing.. Tanx

Lady Mac - good to have you back.

Here is the article from Das Neue Blatt in German for those who understand. For those who don't understand it says that he is advertising for a woman. He has sacked 32 people in his palace staff, his workday is from 8 til midnight and he hasn't taken a vacation for the last two years because he couldn't afford it.

Enjoy darlings !!!

Er hat’s versprochen, im Juni, kurz nachdem er die Amtsgeschäfte seines Vaters übernomen hatte. „Sie können versichert sein“, so Fürst Albert (47), „ich werde heiraten und eine Familie gründen.“
Nun wartet sein Land. Doch weit und breit ist keine Fürstin in Sicht. Während die Monegassen von einer neuen Gracia Patricia träumen, wurschtelt sich ihr Landesvater allein durch den Alltag.
Im 400-Zimmer-Grimaldi-Palast, so früher wenigstens noch 112 Mitarbeiter herumwuselten, ist es still geworden: Albert hat seinen Personalbestand auf 32 Dienstboten reduziert. Ein Blick in die privaten Räume des Monarchen entlarvt das Dasein eines einsamen Junggesellen: Albert allein am Frühstückstisch. Albert hilflos beim Krawattebinden. Albert versunken zwischen Bergen von Büchern und Akten in seinem Büro.
Auch wenn es in der Öffentlichkeit oft den Anschein hat, als sei der neue Fürst ständig nur mit den schönen Dingen dieser Welt beschäftigt: In Wahrheit führt Albert längst das Leben eines Top-Managers, den der Job auffrisst. 280 Termine standen seit April bis heute in seinem Kalender. Seine Arbeitstage beginnen morgens um 8 Uhr und enden nicht selten erst kurz nach Mitternacht.
„Mein Bruder“, so Prinzessin Stephanie in einem Interview, „hat seit zwei Jahren keinen Urlaub mehr gemacht. Wenn ich ihm etwas schenken könnte, das night mit Geld zu bezahlen ist, dann wären das ein paar Tage Ruhe. Weit weg von seinen Aufgaben und er Öffentlichkeit.“
Stephanie ist zur Zeit offenbar die einzige Frau, die Albert wirklich nahe kommt. Sie entlastet, wo sie entlasten kann. Übernimmt offizielle Aufgaben, berät ihn, lockt ihn auch mal zum Essen aus dem Palast. Aber macht das auf lange Sicht glücklich? „Ich hätte ger eine Beziehung, die ewig dauert“, sagt Albert selbst. Und wer ihn kennt, weiß: Wenn endlich auch das Lachen eigener Kinder durch den Palast hallen würde, wäre das seine Erfüllung.
„Albert“, so seine Freunde, „ist aufmerksam, charmant, humorvoll und großzügig. Er wäre ein toller Ehemann und Vater.“ Was fehlt, ist also einzig und allein die Traumfrau. Vielleicht sollte der Fürst es ja mal mit einer Heiratsanzeige versuchen: „Einsamer Adeliger, reich, ledig, sucht ...“

Well, good that you are posting again. I thought you might be offended by our writing or something. We have been rather nasty to our beloved darling at times.

Of course Grace had impeccable taste...we just need to refurbish a little...wear and tear you know...and add a few more modern conveniences and each princess would want to leave her own imprint.

I hope Lady M realizes that this is all done tongue-in-cheek of course...I would never ever be a home wrecker...good Catholic girls just don't do that. :p

Yes, there is a library, actually 3. One is the regular one, then of course the irish library and the childrens library. We also have a ludotheque et sonotheque and a public videotheque. Borrowing is for free, you just have make a deposit, which will be reimbursed if you no longer which to be a member. So we are not totally behind the modern world

And there is always building going on. Appartment buildings, the new sportsclinic just to mention a few.

Well, I heard the 70s are back, but I didn't like that style much when I grew up in it, so great taste or not, I'm with you on the refurbishing. Besides that's over 30 years ago, has seen 3 children and several grandkids growing up, several generations of dogs, so I think there should be a bit more then just wear and tear.

Well, at least we know according to the article that Donna kindly posted, that there were until now enough people around to do the dusting ad picking up of animal hair and cleaning dog slobber of the furniture.

We could revive the which wife for PA thread for that and maybe you could give us some more insights about his personality from an astrological point of view. And when we are done and have decided on the winner, we all go to the palace and present PA to his wife.

Donna...could you provide a translation please? My German is pretty weak and I'd like a few more details. I ran it through one of those online translators and it wasn't a really pretty translation. Merci, mille fois, cherie.

There seems to be no new news on Prince Albert. Seeing that we are close to 10 pages, this seems to be a good time to close this thread and start a fresh one. The new thread can be found at http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...xvii-8487.html
