Excuse me and there is no nice way to put this but the weekend revenue is no where near what Rainier's death will bring from the amount of people paying their respects as well as tourist to be the first to buy something with his photo etc on it. I am not directing that at you monamona but to the one who thought that one up. The press needs to use their brains before speaking and stay with the facts. Rumors hurt innocent people as I well know and look what Albert has gone through because someone started the rumor he is gay years ago.

Today journalists and photographers have finally been asked to move away from the entrance area of the Centre Cardio-Toracique de Monaco in order provide the princly family with more space and privacy.

When my grandfather had a heart attack, he was in the hospital for four months and the state of his health fluctuated rapidly until he died. Rainier, I think, is undergoing the same type of up and down experience.

Today's communique:

Quote:
Le lundi 28 mars 2005
BULLETIN MEDICAL

L'état de santé de Son Altesse Sérénissime le Prince Rainier III, toujours préoccupant, demeure néanmoins stationnaire.
Sous l'influence du traitement et avec la possibilité d'instauration d'une dialyse rénale, l'altération des principaux organes a cessé de progresser.
Le Souverain, qui est constamment sous assistance respiratoire, présente cependant un état général qui rend le pronostic vital toujours réservé.
Un nouveau bulletin médical sera publié ultérieurement.

Le mardi 29 mars 2005
BULLETIN MEDICAL

Après trois semaines d'hospitalisation au Centre Cardio-Thoracique de Monaco, dont près de huit jours dans le service de réanimation, Son Altesse Sérénissime le Prince Rainier III demeure dans un état toujours très fragile.

Néanmoins, les conditions cardiaque, pulmonaire et rénale rendent le pronostic vital toujours extrêmement réservé.

Thanks for the news update Michelle. It's completley disrespectful that someone makes fun of someone in a hard situation as the fimly right now.

My prayers for Rainier and the family.

What exactly did GUy Carlier do and say to offend the rotal family?

This article was interesting in that it mentioned relationship between Prince Rainier and Prince Albert:


Monaco mournfully prepares for a new era
John Lichfield
March 29 2005 at 09:20AM Europe's oldest and longest-reigning head of state remained gravely ill: so ill that his faithful subjects (all 6 000 of them) were preparing inwardly - and nervously - for a new era.

His Most Serene Highness Prince Rainier has been the most absolute of monarchs for 56 years.

He has not only ruled Monaco, but also transformed it from a sleepy resort for idle aristocrats to a booming tax haven for the energetic nouveau riche.

Can his little postcard realm survive his passing?

Albert has never marrying has provoked rumours that he is gayWhat should the 6 000 Monegasques and 26 000 resident foreigners expect from his son and heir, so long kept at arm's length from the family business?

Prince Albert, 47, is a likeable man with the looks of a reliable family accountant, but he has none of his father's toughness and charisma and, to the consternation of his father and future subjects, no wife.

Prince Rainier, 81, has been in a "grave condition" in the intensive care unit of the tiny principality's specialist heart and lung unit since last Tuesday.

He is suffering from kidney and heart failure, brought on by a severe pulmonary infection.

His doctors have warned that he may not recover.

Since 1949, Rainier Louis Henri Maxence Bertrand Grimaldi, sovereign prince of Monaco and Duc de Valentinois, has been not only monarch of his square-mile realm on the French Riviera but also the de facto prime minister, chief executive and town mayor.

Until his most recent series of illnesses, Rainier made the final decision on everything: from the colour of the park-keepers' uniforms to the type of motorcycles ordered for the country's police force.

Rainier inherited from his grandfather a seedy seaside town, mostly known for its casino. Over half a century later, Monaco is 20 percent larger thanks to costly reclamation of land from the sea, and enormously wealthier.

The principality is home to most racing divers and tennis players. It is also the principal residence of, among others, Ringo Starr, Shirley Bassey and a lot of Russians who would prefer not to give their names.

If you are a rich resident, almost anything goes. For everyone else, there is an atmosphere of conformist authoritarianism (no picnics in the parks, no singing in the street). Monaco has been described as "East Germany with Rolls-Royces".

Of the 32 000 or so residents, only the 6 000 Monegasque citizens have the right to vote for a parliament, which has a little more influence than it used to have, ie not very much.

The mystique of the principality - the second smallest country in the world and the second most densely populated - was greatly enhanced by Rainier's marriage to American actress Grace Kelly in 1956.

The glitzy image has been increased, and tarnished, by the amorous exploits of their daughters, Princess Caroline and Princess Stephanie.

In recent years, Rainier's principality has been criticised for its lax banking laws. Monaco is on the OECD list of "unco-operative" tax havens, suspected of allowing the laundering of embezzled or criminally generated money from all over the world.

Prince Albert is said by friends to be embarrassed by this status and determined to clean up the micro-country's image when he comes to power.

He is also said to be more willing than his father to allow an element of genuine democracy.

Whether the "Monegasque miracle" can survive democracy and openness remains unclear.

Father and son are frequently said to have a strained relationship. Prince Albert stutters in French, his father's language, and speaks freely in English, his mother's.

According to French psychologists, this is a sign that Albert has always felt intimidated by his father.

And the fact that Albert has never married has provoked rumours that he is gay. His friends say he is, in fact, energetically heterosexual.

He has had many girlfriends, but none of them could bear the idea of living in the media fishbowl of Monaco.

The principality's constitution was changed three years ago to allow for the possibility that Albert will never produce an heir.

The succession would then pass to his sisters and his aunt and their children and grandchildren.

This leaves open the possibility that a future monarch of Monaco (currently 12th in line) will be called Prince Keith.
