Regardless of the media coverage dedicated to his life, I think prince Rainier will be Monaco's best remembered and most important ruler in history because he made Monaco, Monaco.

I agree too, he made Monaco. Beatiful pics "ranier trough the years". A lot of true has been said in this thread. No matter your age, lost someone who love is difficult and painfully but Lena I agree with you, it´s different lose your parent when he´s 90 to he´s 40 or 50. My friend lost her father when she was 12 (he was 52 ) and I think that the pain is for the future.
maryshawn i like your post, it´s sensitive

The pic of Caroline is so sad, and it´s worring me. I hope he recover soon.My prays goes to him and his family

The Presitent of the Republic of France Mr. Jacques Chirac called Prince Alberton Friday, 25th March 2005:

French President Jacques Chirac called Albert on Friday to "inquire about Prince Rainier's condition, "the president's office said, and "express his concern and friendship for him, his family, and the people of Monaco."

Watching these events I feel makes us all realize that we are all mortal no matter what station we are in life. I hope that Rainer does not feel any pain and that he will be in a place far better then this world full of evil and sin and be reunited with the one true love of his life Grace. I hope that fact that he will be reuinted with Grace will give confort to Rainer...

I agree. They are human. They go through the same joys and sufferings as 'normal' people do. Death and tragedy are something everyone experiences during their life time, regardless of their country, social status, wealth or occupation.

If you look at this BBC page there is an article about the Pope's blessing for Rainier and if you click on the video link at the top right you can see a short clip about what Rainier has done for Monaco.
God bless him!

I'm astonished with the dedication of the Pope, despite his own ailment he still got time to bless other patient. God bless them both.

Prince Rainier has set the stage for Greatness.

I've decided I no longer want to be blue over Prince Rainier's condition and prognosis. I want to think about the greatness of his life, and the wonderful legacy he is leaving for the future. He's had a long and full life. He's fortunate to have the opportunity to live his life to the fullest. He's created three wonderful and strong children. They will be the future of Monaco. Perhaps under their time, Monaco will flourish to an economic, artistic, benevolent, and peaceful level higher than it's ever experienced in the past 700+ years.

God bless The Pope. One of the greastest Popes of our time.
And God Bless Prince Rainier, a man who brought prosperity and sucess to Monaco and who gaves us 3 of the most beautiful Princesses of all times: Princesses Grace, Caroline and Stephanie.

God bless everybody and Good Easter for all.

I'm shocked and now expecting the worse with what the Palace has said earlier today. :(

I've never been to Monaco and I would have really liked to visit it with Rainier as a ruler. I agree with all of you on what's been said and in recent posts I agree with Freedom & Regina.

I'm really admired from the Pope sending his blessings to Rainier.

Here's the communique that was sent out by the Palais Princier on Friday.

Bureau de Presse


Le vendredi 25 mars 2005

Bulletin Médical


L'état de santé de Son Altesse Sérénissime le Prince Rainier III, qui est toujours en réanimation sous assistance respiratoire au Centre Cardio-Thoracique de Monaco, reste préoccupant.
Devant la gravité de la situation, l'avis du Professeur Jean-Charles Piette, Chef de service de médecine interne de l'Hôpital La Pitié Salpetrière de Paris, a été sollicité.
Dans la soirée du jeudi 24 mars, la consultation entre ce spécialiste et les Docteurs Vincent Dor, Jean Joseph Pastor et Françoise Montiglio, a conclu à la nécessité de poursuivre le traitement institué.
Le pronostic vital du Souverain, en raison de la fragilité de ses fonctions cardiaque, respiratoire et rénale, reste réservé.
Un nouveau bulletin médical sera publié ultérieurement.

Dr. Françoise Montiglio
