In this morning’s South African newspaper, The Benoni City Times, journalist Clyde Meela reports that the future Princess of Monaco, Charlene Wittstock, parents are considering moving to Monaco on a permanent basis. Not only to be near their only daughter, but to escape from “…the state of crime in this country (South Africa)…” notes Michael Wittstock.
You see, a couple of months ago the elderly Mr. Wittstock was attacked, robbed, and beaten outside of his home in Rynfield, South Africa (which I reported about here) days before his daughter, Charlene, was to participate in the famous Midmar Mile race. The poor man “… sustained a broken nose and facial injuries.” (Look Local.co.za) Today, he is doing well, in case you were wondering.
Anyway, Mr. Wittstock confirms that his wife, Lynette, is currently in Monaco to support her daughter during the final preparations for her upcoming princely wedding. Mr. Wittstock is still on the fence as to whether or not he and his wife should make the permanent move to glitzy Monaco. Now, if I were him I would live outside of Monaco perhaps in Cap d’Ail or someplace in the French countryside. Why? Monaco, though a nice place to visit, is too damn crowded. Better to have nature and crap all around you than crowded buildings, small streets, and so forth.
