Sadly, Moonmaiden23 (btw I honestly love your username), I agree. *tears*

I'm one that believes when royalty becomes like every one else, they will be no more. I, personally, hold them to a higher standard, though I know not all have the strength of character and the resolve to sustain it. This is why they should be circumspect in whom they choose to bring into their circles. When the monarchy does fall, they will have nobody to blame but themselves.

This is the way it is for all society though, seems to get worse & worse every decade/millenium, won't be long before God shows up, seriously.

But I digress, I honestly wish Prince Albert & his lovely fiancee, Charlene Wittstock, well. :)

Nadine I am very much a monarchist, because these families link us to a country's history and identity...so I don't want the to become defunct.

But if the trend continues that is EXACTLY what I see happening...in fact it has already begun in some dynasties.

I pray for the happiness AND success of the Grimaldis of Monaco.

*thanks about my username!*

I don't think we have to fret over not having enough aristos.

They seem to be procreating like there's no tomorrow, and there are always plenty of contenders in the sidelines, waiting for their big chance.

If another sport needed extra support, I'm sure PA would pull out all the stops.
Renata , do you know how long the Grand Prix has been in Monaco? I have a feeling just a presentiment that Monaco will lose it.But I was wondering if you knew how long it has been there.

are there any other photos close ups of the ring?

The Grand Prix is held in Monaco since 1929. In 1950 the race has been
part of the Formula 1 World Championship for the first time, since 1955
it's been on a regular basis.

The discussion is already going on at the following thread, so for more
information and discussion please use this thread:

Jaya, post 165:

Sorry I did not respond to your post about Formula One - I've only just discovered it, due to it already being on "General questions..."

Oh dear.... PA looks rather middle-aged and and out of condition....

And as to the article's "translation".... Well !!

Quote: "The couple who has spent four years together and will marry on July 9 next year in the Catalan capital" .... ...."The ruler of Monaco ..... went quite unnoticed in the bowels of Olympic..."

Great stuff - but let's hope it doesn't trigger an international incident :-)

There is an Italian saying: "Traduttore traditore" - a translator is a traitor.
Treacherous Google.

Maybe this is all wishful thinking, but I am sure PA will try to get in shape for his wedding next summer...why come waddling out of the Cathedral overweight with a lovely bride like Charlene at your side?

Speaking of CW, it will be interesting to revisit this Forum five years from now, when she has had a chance to make her mark as Princess and has-God willing-given the Principality an heir.

It will be fascinating to see if hearts and minds-and opinions!-have changed.

Albert is the US this week. He was in Missouri yesterday, Monday 8/02. He visited his old friend Dr. Munch at regional hospital in Hannibal. It was quite an event for this small town.

It also stated that CW joined him too, they suppose to visit St. Louis together.

The concert wasn't just any old concert, but one of a sequence of concerts by the OPMC - the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo.

The remaining concerts in the "Palais Princier / Cour d'Honneur" series were on August 1st, followed by Aug. 5th, and August 8th. There are a total of seven such concerts in the 2009-10 season.

The summer concerts were started by Rainier in 1959 and continue under PA's reign.
