The people in Monaco will not change him or the political system as long as their standard of living does not change. If the average standard of living in Monaco were like the one in South Africa, there would not be a Prince Albert, probably not even a princely family. Even if he chose to marry an ape in drags they would not complain as long as their standard of living would be the same. Money rules the world.
Therefore let us enjoy the ongoing soap opera about the rock and the rockies. I think they are good for a lot of juicy events. It is just the beginning.
Totally agree with you! There is no turning back at this point even if Albert wakes up and smells the real coffee. He is on it 100%. No one is twisting his arm to marry WC. At first he thought that he wouldn't need to marry her and that he could just travel around the world pretending to save the environment and when it's needed show up with WC on his arm (to show how serious and grown up he became ), but after realizing that dragging a twenty years younger woman who has no real status around dignitaries and royals is an insult and a really bad image for Monaco he agreed that marring her and giving her a legitimate status would be good for him and Monaco. Albert was never a deep person, so he never thought deeper then that. Stopping people to ask question about their relationship and avoiding to go trough the hoops every time he wants to bring her anywhere with him is the good enough reason to marry and give his mother's title to. He knows that in WC he has found someone who would tolerate his sex games with other women and that with her as his wife he will continue to have the freedom he had as a single man.
As Electra said Albert is only interested in "recognition in form of prizes, awards, honorary doctor titles" for himself and if WC could bring attention to Monaco through her wardrobe changes... that is the only thing he aspires to achieve as a sovereign. Albert is well aver of his limitations and his fragile ego. That is why he could have never picked someone better then him to be his wife. he just want everyone to leave him alone so he can continue to have the life he is used to.
