Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: Where there's a will ...

11 April 2005

Where there's a will ...

... There's usually trouble, too. And Monaco's brand new ruler, 47 year old Prince Albert, well knows it.

"There are going to be arguments," he's today been reported as saying, in the The Daily Mirror. Well, I'll just bet there are. Bloody great big ones!

While not disclosing exactly what size fortune he's to inherit from his recently deceased, 81 year old dad, Prince Ranier, the Mirror did divulge this much. Albert's elder [by a year] sister, Princess Caroline, has been left a whoping £950 million. But it's her brother who's been named "the main beneficiary". Phew!

Now, moving swiftly back to the subject of predicted "arguments".

The pair's younger sister, Stephanie, 40, seems all set to be the one firing the first shots of any looming battles. Boy! Talk about 'A Family At War'. If I had a fortune of my own, I'd gladly risk it in an instant -- by betting we 'ain't seen nothin' yet'. Because, little baby sister, Steph, is set to get only one per cent of dear old dad's huge stash. Wow! As far as pops was concerned, she must really have been a right, royal pain in the arse.

Sheesh. Talk about sibling rivalry. Eh?
