deo juvante

prince albert II gets married in a civil ceremony today. but why is he only a prince?
he forever remains a "prince" & not a king because monaco is a principality and not a kingdom. monarchs of a principality are princes whereas monarchs of a kingdom are kings.
knowing the consequences if he fails to produce a legitimate heir, why has he waited so long to marry?

and when was it decided that ONLY a legitimate heir could inherit the throne (not unheard of in the history of this small principality to allow an illegitimate daughter to rule . . .)

did the eagles play "lyin' eyes" last night at their concert in honor of the big occasion last night?
"With God's Help"
