Wide top shot crowd waving banners and flags STORYLINE: Prince Albert II formally assumed Monaco's throne on Saturday during a day of ceremony and celebration to usher in the modern-day monarch and bid a final farewell to his late father, Rainier III. Princes and princesses from Britain, Sweden, Denmark and Morocco were among the royal representatives flying into the tiny Riviera principality for festivities that began with a Mass at Monaco's 19th century cathedral. 46-year-old Albert automatically took royal powers upon the death of his father in April and was appointed His Serene Highness in July, when he was sworn in before the people of Monaco in the first of a two-part investiture ceremony. This round of festivities coincides with Monaco's national day on Saturday and was intended as Albert's coming out party before foreign dignitaries and royalty, though no kings and queens were expected. Ceremonies began on a solemn note, with Monaco's Archbishop Bernard Barsi leading a morning Mass for Albert in the cliff-top cathedral where his father and mother, Hollywood beauty Grace Kelly, were married and are now buried. Accompanied by his sisters, princesses Caroline and Stephanie, Albert then proceeded to the nearby royal palace, where the Grimaldi dynasty has ruled for 700 years. There, to mark the symbolic transfer of power, Rainier's standard was presented to the royal guard for the last time at the gates of the palace, and Albert was presented with a royal standard, or banner, bearing his emblem. He then joined the rest of his family on the palace balcony. The ceremony marked an emotional farewell to Rainier, Europe's longest-serving monarch who ruled Monaco for 56 years until his death at the age of 81. After a lifetime in his father's shadow, Albert has emerged as an assured leader determined to promote dynamism in Monaco's banking industry and clean up the principality's image as a haven for tax evaders and dirty money. Other festivities planned for Saturday include a luncheon at the royal palace for invited guests. In the afternoon, Albert, a devoted soccer fan, plans to attend a match between Monaco and Saint-Etienne, followed by a performance of Rossini's opera "Voyage to Reims" at the grand Monte-Carlo Opera.

Crowd cheering wildly 16. Prince waving to crowd 17. Various shots of fireworks display STORYLINE The people of Monaco celebrated into the early hours of Wednesday along the Mediterranean enclave's yacht-filled port to fete the ascension to the throne of their new ruler, Prince Albert II. Albert, followed by his two sisters, Princess Caroline and Princess Stephanie, and the rest of the Grimaldi family, led a procession through the streets of the principality, greeting cheering revellers. He later addressed the crowds who had gathered to celebrate the event. "On this day of my coronation, this image of a population gathered, strengthens our faith in the future of our country," he told them. Earlier on Tuesday Albert was proclaimed ruler of Monaco at a Mass in the white stone cathedral where his father and mother, Hollywood beauty Grace Kelly, are buried. The day's festivities culminated in a spectacular fireworks display over the port, set to tunes by U2 and Pink Floyd. Albert, 47, is coming into his own as a modern-day monarch. Last week, the sporty bachelor unblushingly acknowledged fathering a child out of wedlock. After a lifetime in the shadow of his father Prince Rainier III, who died in April, Albert emerged as an assured leader in his first speech to his subjects. He outlined plans to promote dynamism in the banking industry but stressed that money laundering would not be tolerated. Prince Albert Alexandre Louis Pierre, Marquis of Baux, is a bobsledder who took part in the last five Winter Olympics and has headed Monaco's Olympic Committee since 1994. Long seen as timid and retiring, he has shown a more forthcoming side since his father's death. Last week, as the three-month mourning period for Rainier ended, Albert confirmed news reports that he fathered a child with an African-born Air France flight attendant. In another surprise, the night before taking the throne Albert told France's TF1 television there may be others with paternity claims, though he didn't offer details. The prince automatically took royal powers upon the death of his father but did not formally embrace his role as His Serene Highness until Tuesday. His accession to the throne is a two-step event, with another ceremony expected to draw heads of state on November 19 (2005).

Mid shot of Monaco STORYLINE Prince Albert took over Monaco's royal powers on Thursday, assuming all but the throne in the tiny principality after a royal commission decided that his critically ill father was too sick to perform his duties. The announcement by the royal palace marked the first time since 1949 that Prince Rainier III - Europe's longest-serving ruler - had not been in control of the Mediterranean realm smaller than New York's Central Park and famed as a playground for the rich and famous. Albert, 47, is the only son of Rainier and his late wife Grace Kelly, the American beauty who exchanged Hollywood stardom for the life of a princess. Well-travelled, multilingual and Monaco's top ambassador in recent years, the unmarried Albert is regarded as a shy, even reluctant, heir. Albert promised to devote himself "with strength, conviction and passion" to his new role as regent. "The state of health of our father remains very fragile," he said in a statement. "Today, faced with the difficulty for my father in exercising his high functions, I will assume all of the royal powers in his name." Rainier, 81, was hospitalised on March 7 and has been intensive care for 10 days with breathing, kidney and heart problems. The Council of the Crown, a commission appointed by Rainier, met on Thursday at the royal palace that overlooks Monaco's yacht-filled harbour and decided after weighing his doctors' diagnosis that the ailing prince can no longer rule. The regency means Albert takes over royal powers while Rainier is sick, but his father could regain them if he recovers, a palace spokesman said. Rainier keeps the throne. Albert has been groomed to rule the principality run for seven centuries by his family - the Grimaldis. But he has remained heirless - causing such concern that the constitution was revised in 2002 to ensure the continuation of the dynasty. His older sister - Princess Caroline, now 48 - would succeed him. She in turn, would be succeeded by her oldest son, Andrea Albert Pierre, now 20. Befriended by numerous celebrities, Albert has remained doggedly his own person and, despite his retiring nature, increasingly assumed the role as Monaco's public face as his father grew frail. There had long been speculation that Rainier, his health increasingly fragile, would turn over power to his son. But the decision was finally made for him, when Rainier's long-failing health became critical.

Various shots of procession 5. Albert and Caroline standing on balcony watching procession STORYLINE: Prince Rainier III of Monaco was clinging to life on Friday, with doctors refusing to say whether he could recover. His son and heir appeared on a palace balcony before subjects praying for their ruler's life. It was the first appearance of Prince Albert since his father entered an intensive care unit on Tuesday with heart, kidney and breathing problems. Doctors refused to say whether the 81 year-old head of Europe's longest-ruling dynasty might survive. A health bulletin signed by three doctors appeared grim, saying Rainier's state of health "remained worrisome." Albert, 47, and his older sister Caroline, 48, appeared on a balcony as a traditional Good Friday procession passed the palace. Caroline, whose husband, Prince Ernst August of Hannover, also was present, bowed her head, praying with her subjects. A priest leading the procession, which carries a statue of Jesus Christ through Monaco's streets, asked the faithful to pray "for all men who suffer, for the ill, for innocent victims." Rainier, who has ruled this Mediterranean principality since 1949, was suffering heart, kidney and breathing problems, and the doctors withheld a prognosis, suggesting the outcome was uncertain. "Because of the fragility of his cardiac, respiratory and kidney functions, the vital prognosis remains reserved," a medical bulletin issued Friday said. The medical team at the seaside Cardio-Thoracic Centre called in a specialist from Paris because of "the gravity of the situation," the bulletin said. Dr. Jean-Charles Piette, chief of internal medicine at Paris' La Pitie Salpetriere hospital, examined Rainier on Thursday night, said palace spokesman Armand Deus. The team decided to continue the current treatment. Priests asked worshippers at Good Friday services in Monaco to pray for Rainier, who has led the more than 700-year-old Grimaldi dynasty, said Deus. Prince Albert, 47, and his two sisters, Caroline, 48, and Princess Stephanie, 40, have been at Rainier's bedside since he was placed in intensive care. The appearance of Albert and Caroline before the crowd was heavy with symbolism, as if to prepare Monaco for change. Albert, a bachelor, would become the new ruler should his father die. Caroline is next in line. Monaco revised its constitution in 2002 to allow power to pass from a reigning prince who has no descendants to his siblings. Both of Albert's sisters have children. Rainier was hospitalised March 7 with a chest infection. His health suddenly worsened, and he was transferred Tuesday to the intensive care unit of the Cardio-Thoracic Centre. The silver-haired Rainier is like a father figure to many here, and some residents were bracing themselves for what would be a new era. The prince has left his mark on his principality smaller than New York's Central Park, transforming Monaco into a modern and elegant enclave for the rich. Rainier's movie-star wife, Grace Kelly, died in a car crash in 1982. Rainier has been in and out of the hospital recently. He has a history of heart problems and has been plagued by recurring respiratory tract ailments.

Various of fireworks STORYLINE: Monaco's Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene attended an evening reception on Saturday after an extravagant wedding attended by international celebrities and royalty. The event brought new allure to the tiny principality known for its luxurious casinos and as a stomping ground for the rich and famous. Saturday's Catholic service followed an intimate civil ceremony on Friday, which saw Charlene officially transformed from commoner into royalty. The marriage of the 53-year-old prince and the 33-year-old Charlene Wittstock, a one-time Olympic swimmer from South Africa who is now known as Princess Charlene, ended a three-decade wait for a new princess. The last wedding of a ruling prince in Monaco was in 1956, when Hollywood star Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier III. Saturday's ceremony was attended by guests including former James Bond actor Sir Roger Moore, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and bohemian designer Roberto Cavalli, of Italy. Royal guests included the kings of Sweden and Belgium and Denmark's crown princess. After the ceremony, about 450 select guests tucked into a multi-course gala prepared by celebrated French-born chef Alain Ducasse. Filet of golden mullet and a vegetable medley "arranged to portray a landscape typical of the coast of the Riviera," according to a statement, was the main event at the three-course meal. Everything besides the South African wines and Champagnes were sourced from within a 10-kilometre (6-mile) radius of Monaco, the palace said. Prince Albert thanked his gathered guests "for making this a truly very special occasion" and thanked his new wife "for putting up.. with my inconsistencies and my idiosyncrasies". "You are a wonderful - sometimes patient - woman with me," he joked. Albert and Charlene met during a 2000 swimming competition in Monaco. Known as a notorious ladies man, Albert long eschewed marriage, and many in Monaco had resigned themselves to forever having a bachelor prince. The constitution was even modified to ensure the continuity of the Grimaldi line, in case Albert never produced an heir. The prince has acknowledged having fathered two children out of wedlock, but only his legitimate offspring would be able to succeed him. Rumours have swirled in recent days that a third illegitimate child had surfaced, prompting Charlene to allegedly try to call off the wedding and return to South Africa days before the festivities. The palace has denied the reports, dismissing them as "ugly rumours" prompted by spite and jealousy.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: MONACO: 50TH CELEBRATION
TAPE_NUMBER: EN9919/a IN_TIME: LENGTH: 00:57 SOURCES: TV MONTE CARLO RESTRICTIONS: TV MONTE CARLO FEED: SCRIPT: xfa Monte Carlo, May 9 1999 PRINCE RAINIER CELEBRATES HIS 50TH Some six-thousand people have celebrated the 50th anniversary of PRINCE RAINIER the Third's reign of the tiny principality of Monaco. - Celebrations kicked off at midday Sunday with a service at the Monaco Cathedral and ended with lavish parties and music later in the evening. - When Prince Rainier took power on May 9, 1949, at age 26, Monaco was a sleepy tax haven, a luxurious watering hole for royalty, high rollers and even shady characters who gambled away millions in its 19th century casino overlooking the Mediterranean. - Today, Monegascs - about 30-thousand in all - still pay no income tax. - And they can thank their 'builder prince,' as Rainier is widely known, for turning Monaco into an internationally recognised financial centre, home to more than 50 banks managing more than 12 and a half billion (b) U-S dollars. - Its tax-free status has fired growth under Rainier, making residency hard to get. - World class athletes like Bjorn Borg and Boris Becker have established residency in Monaco to avoid the high taxes they face in their home countries. - Monaco, roughly the size of Manhattan's Central Park, has seen some changes in its economy during the years of Rainier's reign. - Following World War Two, Monaco earned up to 90 percent of its revenues in gambling, but today it only accounts for less than four percent. - Speculation has been rife for years as to when Rainier, who turns 76 this year, will abdicate power to his son, Albert. - There have been few official clues - though Rainier said on Sunday that his son was "preparing" for the role. In a speech to a large gathering at the palace square, Prince Rainier talked about Monaco's stability and increasing presence in the international arena. The Grimaldi family, which has ruled Monaco since 1297, is one of Europe's oldest royal families. They have been pursued by the European celebrity press ever since the wedding of Rainier and former American movie star Grace Kelly, particularly following her death in a 1982 car crash.

Throughout Monaco, Rainier's subjects braced for what they feared could be the final days of a man many revere as a father figure. On the streets, people expressed their sorrow at the Prince's condition. "We love him. We hope his health gets better," said one man. On Thursday, Rainier was spending his third day in intensive care at a hospital with a view of his hilltop palace. A medical bulletin from the royal palace on Wednesday described the ailing prince's condition as "stable". France-Info radio reported a day later that Rainier's health had not improved, but the palace declined to comment or say when the next medical bulletin would be released. The 81-year-old prince, whose movie-star wife, Grace Kelly, died in a 1982 car crash, was hospitalised more than two weeks ago with a chest infection. After a marked improvement, the prince's health suddenly worsened. Rainier was transferred to the intensive care unit at Monaco's Cardio-Thoracic Centre on Tuesday after developing a sudden respiratory infection "with cardiac and kidney failure", the statement said. Rainier's heir, 47-year-old Crown Prince Albert, returned from abroad on Tuesday to visit his father, as did Princess Caroline, 48. 40-year-old Princess Stephanie was seen entering and leaving the hospital. Rainier, who assumed the throne in 1949, is beloved in Monaco for having transformed a state smaller than New York's Central Park into a modern and elegant magnet for jet setters. Rainier has been in and out of the hospital recently - he has a history of heart problems and has lately been plagued by recurring ailments linked to his respiratory tract.
