I think he has always been looking a little older than he was when he was young. When he married Grace he was about 32.

Here're some more photos of him. He definetly is a family-man...

MONACOS PRINCE RAINIER CLINGING TO LIFE: 59 minutes ago
Europe AP

MONACO - Prince Rainier was clinging to life Friday in an intensive care unit, with his doctors unable to say whether the 81-year-old ruler of Monaco would survive heart, kidney and breathing problems.

Rainier's health "remained worrying," three of his doctors said in a statement. "Because of the fragility of his cardiac, respiratory and kidney functions, the vital prognosis remains reserved."

The statement indicated that specialists were withholding a prognosis, meaning they are unsure he will recover.

Dr. Jean-Charles Piette, chief of internal medicine at La Pitie Salpetriere hospital in Paris, was asked to examine Rainier, the statement said. He and other specialists decided the prince must continue his current course of treatment.

Piette examined Rainier on Thursday night, said palace spokesman Armand Deus.

Rainier was hospitalized more than two weeks ago with a chest infection. His health suddenly worsened on Tuesday, and he was brought to the intensive care unit of Monaco's seaside Cardio-Thoracic Center.

Boyan Christophorov, a professor of internal medicine at Paris V University, said the phrasing of Rainier's medical bulletin suggested that his doctors seriously fear for the prince's life. "The terms of these releases are carefully weighed. That the patient's vital prognostic is 'reserved' means that his life is seriously threatened," Christophorov told the Associated Press.

At a service Thursday evening at Monaco's Sainte Devote church, the Rev. Fabrice Gallo asked worshippers to pray for Rainier, and priests at Good Friday services in Monaco requested more prayers for Rainier, Deus said.

"Every hour we turn on the news, hoping to hear something positive," said Nathalie Ponsenard, a Monaco nursery school teacher. She pointed to the flag atop the hilltop royal palace.

"While it's still up, we know he's still alive," she said.

Some residents braced themselves for bad news.

"He's done so much for us, even for the young people," said Melanie Poisson, a 17-year-old high school student. "He's been prince for my whole life. It's hard to imagine Monaco without him."

The prince has been in and out of the hospital recently. He has a history of heart problems and has lately been plagued by recurring ailments linked to his respiratory tract. Doctors often use respirators, and dialysis machines, to lighten the workload of the body while it heals from an infection. However, respiratory infections in the elderly can be deadly.

The prince, who assumed the throne in 1949, is beloved in Monaco for having transformed a Mediterranean state smaller than New York's Central Park into a modern and elegant enclave for the rich. Rainier's movie-star wife, Grace Kelly, died in a car crash in 1982.

Rainier's heir, Crown Prince Albert, 47, and his two daughters, Princess Caroline, 48, and Princess Stephanie, 40, have been at his bedside since he was taken to intensive care.

Monaco changed its succession law in 2002 so that Albert can assume the throne even though he is unmarried with no children and has no descendants. Under the revised law, power eventually could be passed from Albert to his siblings, who both have children.

Prince Rainier's health 'worrying': doctors

Last Updated Fri, 25 Mar 2005 08:48:17 EST

MONACO - Monaco's Prince Rainier II remains in "worrying" condition as doctors on Friday refused to speculate on whether the 81-year-old would ever recover from heart and kidney problems.

The longtime ruler who married American movie star Grace Kelly is hooked up to a respirator after suffering heart and kidney failure.

In a health bulletin issued Friday, three of his doctors reserved judgment on his health, which they said "remained worrying."

"Because of the fragility of his cardiac, respiratory and kidney functions, the vital prognosis remains reserved," said the statement.

The chief of internal medicine at La Pitie Salpetriere hospital in Paris has been asked to study Rainier's case.

Monaco's ruler was hospitalized two weeks ago with a chest infection. He was transferred to the intensive care unit of Monaco's seaside Cardio-Thoracic Centre when his health worsened on Tuesday.

His children, Princess Caroline, Prince Albert and Princess Stephanie rushed to his side.

Rainier succeeded his grandfather in 1949 to become the 31st ruler of the principality, a constitutional monarchy with a population of slightly more than 32,000.

The prince, whose 1956 marriage to Kelly captivated the world, has been head of state longer than any other ruler in the world except Thailand's King Rama IX.

Been looking through the news and haven't found nothing new, except that the Palace sent out a communique today in which it says that his condition is serious.

One article mentioned that the Monaco doctors have already asked the Parisinian doctors for help, this is really worrying me now...the same happened with Princess Grace.

Michelle & everyone thanks for posting all of those pictures, even though he's still with us thankfully looking at them made me sad :(

Prince Rainier's condition has not
improved, palace says.

Monaco — Prince Rainier's doctors said Friday they were unable to say whether the 81-year-old ruler of Monaco would recover from the heart, lung and kidney problems that put him in intensive care.

Prince Rainier remained hooked up to a respirator and his state of health "remained worrying," the statement said. Prince Rainier was suffering heart and kidney failure.

The statement, signed by three doctors, said the prognosis was "reserved," French medical terminology indicating that specialists are unsure whether someone will recover.

Dr. Jean-Charles Piette, the chief of internal medicine at the La Pitie Salpetriere hospital in Paris, was called to Monaco to see Prince Rainier. He and other specialists decided that the Prince must remain in the clinic for treatment.

Prince Rainier was hospitalized more than two weeks ago with a chest infection. His health suddenly worsened on Tuesday, and he was brought to the intensive care unit of Monaco's seaside Cardio-Thoracic Center. The Prince, who assumed the throne in 1949, is beloved in Monaco for having transformed a Mediterranean state smaller than New York's Central Park into a modern and elegant enclave for the rich.
