if there was any lingering doubts that Prince Albert has the greatest job on earth, I think they should now be thoroughly dispelled.
Congratulations to the Italian ladies!

PA's pleasure must have been somewhat diminished yesterday.

Yesterday, seven thiefs robbed a private Bank, the Crédit Foncier de Monaco.

The headlines: "L'Incroyable hold-up" - "La Principauté en état de siège" The Principality in a state of siege.... and so on.

Monaco was immediately shut down by the police and the Public Safety teams.

Seven persons of Latin American origin got away with 100000 euros, without violence.

Monaco.maville.com La Principauté en état de siège

The bank is Monaco's oldest, founded in 1922. It is the sponsor for the Ballets de Monte Carlo.

WOW --I thought survielliance of Monaco was top notch!!! The principality is described as one of the safest places. I wonder if they had lay offs in the safety sector?

If you think about it, 100 000 euros is a comparatively paltry sum by Monaco standards, especially when it has to be shared between seven :-)

Looking at the bank again, it has an HQ plus six branches in Monaco.
100 grand will barely register on their radar....

Seeing PA and Michel Roger together, it seems to me that the new Minister of State looks more dynamic and "with it" than his two predecessors.....

Prince Albert at the funeral mass for former International Olympic Committee
president Juan Antonio Samaranch at Barcelona's cathedral on April 22, 2010.

Samaranch, one of the longest-serving presidents of the IOC, passed away
from a cardiorespiratory arrest at a Barcelona hospital on April 21, 2010 at
the age of 89. Hundreds of people, including top athletes and politicians, paid
tribute to Samaranch as he lay in wait in Barcelona.

On pic 2 Albert is pictured with Jacques Rogge, President of the International
Olympic Committee, on pic 3 he greets Maria Teresa Samaranch, daughter of
Juan Antonio Samaranch.

Prince Albert attended the opening of the new youth centre
"Ni Box" and tried out its bowling alley, Monaco, April 24,
2010. Albert was accompanied by the new State Minister of
Monaco, Michel Roger.

I couldn't resist putting the funny bowling pics in a chronological
order

I love pic 3 - he's looking very athletic. Did Michel Roger also do some bowling?

Whether yes or no - he's already making an impact in the Principality.
