No! At least I certainly don't. I can see the sense in MyAdia's basic point about Albert being naive. That was commented on long before his coming to the throne. Such a nice guy, perhaps too nice to be an effective ruler whereas, say what you will about Rainier III he was a strong, determined and forceful sovereign prince. Ask Aristotle Onasis or even his sister for that matter. I think alot of people overlook the immense weight of responsibility that is on Prince Albert. He is, in fact if not in name, an absolute monarch with far more big decisions to make than the Queen of Great Britain or the King of Sweden. That means it takes a certain kind of individual to really succeed in that position. He cannot just smile and wave and cut ribbons, he has to actually rule. I guess we will see how he handles this latest crisis, I hope everything works out for him but I also hope something will jolt him hard enough that he learns that not every man or woman he meets is as well meaning as he is.
