Relevant Quote #59

Prince Rainier III of Monaco died today. He was 81.
Here he is in 1956, making his purchase on the world's attention; marrying a motion picture actress.

"The actress gave up all her old dreams
And traded up, now she is a queen
Royal families don't have time for that shit
Your crystal ball, you keep it hid"
-- Mark Oliver Everett, Grace Kelly's Blues
