On Friday 30th July, the Principality launched a report named:

"L'attractivité au service du développement économique de la Principauté de Monaco"

Michel Roger, the Minister of State, had demanded an investigation into the economic development of Monaco. After a host of consultations, the report was launched last week. There is now a "Livre blanc Monaoc 2029", a White Book" on Monaco's future.

PA had already provided the "road map" - now it's up to Roger and the government to apply themselves to the "ten priority axes of action" ... or something....

P.S. Charlene should not have any problem with the title of the report - every word is an English one.

A headache for PA - and all about football.

Tomorrow (Friday) the UEFA Supercoupe will be played at the Stade Louis 2.

Unfortunately the Monegasque season ticket holders at the Stade will not be allowed to attend the match.

One member of a supporters group said: "One is there for all the Ligue matches at the Stade, even for those who aren't quite as interesting. and the one time there's a great match, we are left at the door".

Two events:

1) The President of Bosnia is opening a consulate in Monaco.

2) Monegasque kids are back in school - C'est la rentrée !!

Prince Title

Why do the rulers of Monaco only become princes and not kings?

Because it is a Principality and not a Kingdom. It is all made up situations, by people a long time ago to create subservience.

It is really too small to be called a kingdom. Menton and Roquebrune used to be part of the principality, but in 1861 these towns seceded. Perhaps if Monaco were larger, calling it a kingdom might be possible.. or not

Lately, I have been reading websites about Princess Stephanie and many of them refer to her as Countess of Polignac. Is this correct?

I think yes, because Stephanie's paternal grandfather Prince Pierre of Monaco was born Count Pierre de Polignac; so also his children and his male line descendants bear this title as well.

Have a look at the Wikipedia article:

Duc de Polignac - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Alain de Polignac is next in line; he was born in 1940. He is now styled "Prince Alain de Polignac" and has two descendants: Ludovic, Prince de Polignac, (b. 1974) and Diane, Princesse de Polignac.

Alain is a wine grower for the famous label "Pommery".

The Vicar-General of Monaco has confirmed that, barring some unforeseen difficulty, Pope Benedict XVI will be visiting the Principality some time in early 2012. He was evidently encouraged to make this statement following rumors that the visit would be summer of next year which of course sparked talk of the Pope marrying Prince Albert and Charlene (and those who actually thought such a thing could happen should see a doctor pronto!). I think Pope Paul III visited in the 16th Century, which I suppose would be the first papal visit. If that was the only one so far it will have been quite a while between visits.

Pope Benedict XVI is due to visit Monaco in 2012, that's to say "it is envisaged " that he may come.

Apparently, there has been a rumour in Monaco that the Pope was to marry PA and CW in July, but that rumour was described as "évidemment totalement fantaisiste".

Monaco is a principality because its ruler was recognised as prince by the french monarch in the seventeenth century. Similarly the reason that the ruler of Japan is called emperor is that when Japan was opening up to the west they made a decision that they should have a ruler with an equal title to that of the ruler of China. It actually makes no sense that he should be emperor since that title only really applies when they are above kings (China was formed from several kingdoms) but since they would be translating it they might as well equalise. This is also also an issue in Germany since the title furst is not actually prince. strictly speaking the princes of Monaco and Lichtenstein should have the approximate rank of a british duke. It is their position as monarch that counts not their title.

Hi Renata, Do you think the fact of the Pope visiting may actually assist to break the alleged Grimaldi curse?

The Pope needs to do an exorcism while he's there. LOL

The Pope has more issues in his own house to deal with instead of worrying about some imagined Grimaldi curse.

I would have answered exactly like NGalitzine, only stronger :-)

However, I suppose the Pope will be glad that, in Monaco, he will find himself less beleaguered, but may feel among friends.....

Question Principality?

Not sure if I got the spelling right or if this is the right thread. But because Monaco is a principality don't they only have a prince and princess as rulers? As a result when Princess Grace was alive wasn't she the equivalent of a queen in a kingdom?

Had to ask I was curious

______________

To put it simply: a principality is less worth than a kingdom, which normally
is much bigger. A princess is of a lower nobility than a queen, even if that
princess is the wife of a ruling prince, so Princess Grace has not really been
on a comparable position, I would say.
