New virtual tour of Monaco

Hi,

Monaco has a new virtual tour in the Internet:
Monaco

It is still only in French, but very easy to navigate. It has wonderful photos. I enjoyed it and hope you will love it too.

That was lovely. I'd have loved if it had given a tour around the palace too.

Hi, I have some questions I’ve been thinking about for awhile and I don’t believe I’ve seen them asked here before. I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me understand this country and it’s royals a bit better? Thank you :)


Monaco is very small and I’ve noticed there is a lot of flats. Does the country have any houses that have private gardens? Apart from the Princely family, are there any houses in Monaco, not just flats? The only examples of houses I have seen are Caroline and Stephanie’s.

How do the Monégasques treat the Royals - do they curtsy to them? How do they address the Royals? Is it Sir? Is it similar to how people in the U.K. address the BRF, (I’m from the U.K.) or is it not as strict?

Are there any tours to foreign countries that Albert and Charlene go on? I can’t remember if the U.K. ever hosted a state visit for Albert. Similarly does Monaco host State visits, for instance have the President of the USA come to visit?

Is Roc Agel in France?

Finally, again comparing to my country of the U.K., are there any other aristocracy in Monaco not related to Princess Antionette? So is there any Monégasque Dukes, Counts, etc that aren’t directly linked to the Royals?

Hi!

There have been and still are, hidden between the high rises, the "Villas of Monaco". They even have a Wikipedia entry:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monaco_villas

They are remnants from the heydays of the old Monaco of the Belle Epoque which was centered around the Casino. And all those magnates, which were too snobish to sleep in an ordinary Grand Hotel, had their villas.

But now there are less and less of them. Monaco is small and the building grounds are rare... Plus: Monaco has no laws protecing old structures...

To the treatment of the royals: The Prince calls his subjects "Fellow countrymen" and "Friends" - They call him "Patron" = Boss and "Monseigneur" = Mylord. A far as I know of the relationship is paternalistic and respectful.

Thank you so much for the information! What do they call the Princesses Charlene, Caroline and Stephanie. Do they bow to them?
So sad that the buildings aren’t protected and have been demolished! I am not a fan of modern architecture and it seems such a shame Albert won’t do something to protect the buildings and the history of Monaco.

Oh, they have a list in Monaco with historically important buildings. But they are not explicitly under all circumstances protected. The decisions are made from case to case, so to say. Again: One has to keep in mind, that Monaco is small, building grounds are rare, but building and the "optimization" of the real estate stock are a big source of income for Monaco.

(I always wondered, why Prince Rainier "The Builder" has not introduced laws like in Hong Kong to Monaco: A lease of building ground for 99 years. This would have made the process of "rejuvenating" the building substance and generating income more easy...)

And to the bowing and curtseying: They have this dancing group with little girls in Moncaco - they do this. But the Prince of Monaco is a real royal, with real power! More like a lifetime President or Prime Minister. Bowing and curtsying is more a thing for "museum royals", royals without real power, I think.
