None that are published as far as I know. Not even on their site. It is announced in the paper, when sth major is happening, but not for every little tit bit they do. So you don't have anyone following them around, everytime they show their face.

the visit was due to the arrival of new equipment for the hospital (heart and eye departments). One of them was a donation and it is customary that in those cases a member of the family does the honours.

Forbes Billionaires Rulers

Hee's Forbes Magazine's 2006 list of billionaire rulers. Prince albert made the list this year. I've compiled the list from the slide show and posted an excerpt from the article.

Forbes Billionaires

Fortunes Of Kings, Queens And Dictators
Luisa Kroll 05.05.06, 9:00 AM ET



These kings, queens and dictators warrant a separate list from our billionaires, which had a record 793 members this year, because of the difficulties separating their personal fortunes from the wealth of the state. Also, the billionaires' rankings exclude extended family fortunes, and most of these rulers share their fortunes with numerous relatives, like Liechtenstein’s Prince Hans-Adam II, who heads a family fortune that dates back almost nine centuries.

1. King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz
King/Saudi Arabia $21 billion Age: 82


2. Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah
Sultan/Brunei $20 billion Age: 59


3. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan
President/United Arab Emirates $19 billion Age: 58

4. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum
Ruler/Dubai $14 billion Age: 56


5. Hans Adam II von und zu Liechtenstein
Prince/Liechtenstein $4 billion Age: 61

6. Prince Albert II
Prince/Monaco $1 billion Age: 48


7. Fidel Castro
President/Cuba $900 million Age: 79

8. Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo
President/Equatorial Guinea $600 million Age: 63

9. Queen Elizabeth II
Queen/U.K. $500 million Age: 80


10. Queen Beatrix Wilhelmina Armgard
Queen/Netherlands $270 million Age: 68

And the only one under 50!

All which makes its harder to separate the golddigging future wannabes from those who could be good for Albert.

There's always the prenup. Any smart woman would sign one to protect herself in the court of public opinion.

When someone agrees to marry one with considerable wealth, I personally think if they do not agree to a prenup that it is a potential red flag that they may be in it for the money. To clarify, I don't think this is always true, but when it comes to vast fortunes where many generations to come are to be affected, I think a prenup is the proper thing to do.

What do you all feel?

Grace had a prenup. Part of it included that Rainier would get to raise the children in Monaco should they divorce.

I think Albert would have one, not just to protect his money, jewelry, and property, but to keep any children guarded. Papparazzi can't go traipsing around Monaco like in other countries.

Even if you think you will never divorce, its smarter to make sure there is an agreement while you are "happy" than to tear things apart after you're unhappy.

I noticed that also, but I thought it was perhaps just me over analyzing.
