Any moment now the announcement is expected......the birth of a child to Prince and Princess?
Any moment now the announcement is expected......the birth of a child to Prince and Princess Rainier of Monaco.
Although the Royal Palace is sumptuous enough for the birth of a royal baby, Prince Rainier had a better idea. He built a beautiful villa in a commanding position on a hill overlooking Monte Carlo and the blue Mediterranean -- the plateau Fontbonne. There Princess Grace (Grace Kelly, former Hollywood film star) will have her child in peaceful and pleasantly relaxing surroundings.
Meanwhile Monte Carlo is expectant. Groups of people gather in the streets and talk, or look away to the Palace, or to the villa on the hill.
Monaco constabulary prepare the ceremonial cannon on the battlements ready for the time when the Royal salute will fired signifying the birth to the people of Monte Carlo and to the whole world.
