According to the Associated Press, Rainier is suffering both renal and cardiac failure and is on life-support.

What a lovely idea, ghostly11. You have posted one of my very favourite photos of Rainier--I adore the photo of him with Stephanie and Albert (those two precious children are Albert and Stephanie and not Caroline and Albert, right?). It is so very precious and I think it reveals a good deal about him. He seems to have loved being a father and grandfather very much. In all of the photos I've seen of him with his children and grandchildren he always looks so very happy and content as though the role of father and grandfather pleases him most.

Absolutely. Rainier has really loved Monaco and the Monegasque people and the people have really loved him in return...

I'll post the article from the link I provided above. There are some wonderful quotes in it...

(AP) The children of Prince Rainier III visited their ailing father Thursday, his third day in intensive care at a seaside clinic, as the monarch's subjects contemplated life without the man who has led them for more than 50 years.

Crown Prince Albert, Rainier's only son and his heir, was seen entering the Cardio-Thoracic Center as were his two sisters, Princesses Caroline and Stephanie. Rainier's movie-star wife, Grace Kelly, died in a car crash in 1982.

The 81-year-old prince's condition he remained on a respirator after suffering heart and kidney failure cast a somber mood over this glitzy Riviera principality.

"Monaco became Monaco thanks to him. I think of him like a second grandfather," said Sandrine Negre, 22, out strolling with friends near the hospital. "This really hurts me."

A medical bulletin released Wednesday by the royal palace described Rainier's condition as "stable." The prince's entourage said Thursday that there had been no change, and no new official medical bulletin was released.

The prince had been hospitalized more than two weeks ago with a chest infection. After a marked improvement, the prince's health suddenly worsened on Tuesday.

He was transferred to intensive care unit after developing a sudden respiratory infection "with cardiac and kidney failure" and breathing trouble that made a respirator "indispensable," according to the medical bulletin.

Rainier, who assumed the throne in 1949, is beloved in Monaco for having transformed a state smaller than New York's Central Park into a modern and elegant magnet for jet setters.

"Monaco prays for Prince Rainier," read the main headline of Monaco Matin newspaper, with a photo of people lighting candles for him at church.

"This country is Prince Rainier," said Patricia Vermeulen, 53, a retired schoolteacher. "This fabulous adventure that is Monaco he created it."

Rainier 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.

Infections can bring on congestive heart failure, which can lower blood pressure and ultimately lead to kidney failure. Heart failure also depresses the respiratory system, making breathing difficult.

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.

I love the quote made by Patricia Vermeulen "This country is Prince Rainier. This fabulous adventure that is Monaco -- he created it"

BBC reported today in its news item on Rainier that he was unconcious and deteriorating. I pray that God is watching over him.
Does anybody know where there are photos of Caroline and Stephanie visiting the hospital? Thanks!

Oh god Prince Rainier unconcious, poor of him and the family. Since I heard 2 days ago that he was in ICU I've been really worried for him and like some of you here, I personally know how hard it is to go thru something like his family is going thru. So all my prayers and best wishes go to them.

It is very nice for everyone to remember all the things he did for Monaco, and we have to keep in mind that if it weren't for him and Grace we wouldn't even be here sharing our admiration for this wonderful family.

Thanks, monaco70s. I think we all love and admire Rainier and are quite sad to see him in such shape. He has lived a remarkable life. He has contributed so much to many, many lives and he's an extraordinary man.

You are most welcome for the photo, ghostly11. It's obvious that Grace and Rainier (though there were some rough patches in their marriage) were the best of friends and that they really loved each other. Rainier sparkled in her presence and vice-versa.

I think you've touched upon one of the most chivalrous aspects of Rainier's personality: the love that he holds for Grace and the great respect and honor with which he treated her. That was very nicely put.

I just talked to a common friend of Stephanie and me. He worked with her for some time a few years ago. It isn't easy to get to Steph right now...even if you wanna comfort her. She managed to get the kids going to school for today and tomorrow morning the three of them will join their daddys.

I'm sorry about your mother, mw7060a. May she rest in peace. My thoughts and prayers are also with the Grimaldi family now.
