It must be odd to be that rich and yet have so little impact on the world. Show of hands: how many people didn't know he was still alive until now?

What's the deal with Monaco? To me Monaco seems to be an upscale Las Vegas with a royal family. And what's the deal with the leader being a "prince.' was there ever a King of Monaco?

I heard recent news that he was seriously ill.

My prayers go out to his family and friends. May he rest in peace.

The news that he was the longest reining monarch in Europe, is very interesting. If Queen Elizabeth has her mothers genes, then she will probably easily become longest reining.
