I'm not sure Monaco would have such strict rules about the sovereign Prince being out the country as the family have so many estates out of the country (Roc Agel and Chateau Marchais, in France for example) it may be unworkable to have strict rules which come into affect when the Prince it out of the country, maybe they only appoint Regents when the sovereign is unable to discharge their duties (so if Albert can work e-mail, phone and fax he's fine but if he couldn't - as we saw when Rainier was seriously ill in his last days - a regent is appointed)
Yes, precisely. The House Law provides for a regency in the event that the Sovereign Prince is unable to discharge his duties or he is not of age. But there is nothing in the House Law in relation to the Sovereign Prince merely being out of the country.

Art. 7. S’Il est temporairement empêché et pour la durée de l’empêchement, le Prince Régnant peut, par ordonnance souveraine, déléguer l’exercice de Ses pouvoirs au Prince Héréditaire majeur. Si le Prince Héréditaire est mineur, bénéficie de cette délégation le conjoint du Prince Régnant ou, à défaut, l’héritier majeur le plus proche dans l’ordre successoral.

Art. 8. En l’absence de la délégation mentionnée à l’article précédent ou dans le cas d’un empêchement devenu définitif, l’impossibilité pour le Prince Régnant d’exercer ses fonctions est constatée par le Conseil de la Couronne, saisi par le Secrétaire d’Etat ou, à défaut, par le Président du Conseil d’Etat.

cdm was only pointing out that the question was in regard to regents, as distinct from first ladies.

The Throne in the Palace

Does anyone have any information on the physical throne that sits in the Throne Room at the Prince’s Palace?

When was it commissioned, how old is it, who made it, etc.

I’d love to know the history as this is one of the only physical historic pieces associated with the crown.
