The Grimaldis of Monaco tried to put a good face on the situation. It was, after all, the annual Nov. 19 National Day celebration in the tiny principality on the sun-blessed Mediterranean coast--a time for the 4,700 Monegasques to honor their hereditary ruler, Prince Rainier. But things have not been going well lately here in Camelot on the Cote D'Azur. The 69-year-old prince is depressed, friends say. His face has a craggy countenance like the rocky bluffs above his eight-square-mile realm.

Monaco's Prince Rainier III appeared to be losing his fight against heart, lung and kidney failure, with his doctors increasingly pessimistic about the chances of survival. As the prince, 81, who has ruled the tiny Mediterranean principality since 1949, spent a fifth straight day in intensive care, the palace issued its most pessimistic statement yet on his prospects, saying his prognosis was "extremely reserved." A similar news release Friday did not use the word "extremely."

Prince Rainier of Monaco underwent heart surgery, a procedure carried out "in good conditions," the palace of this Mediterranean principality said. Rainier, 71, was operated on in the Cardiothoracic Center, according to a brief palace statement. It said doctors decided to operate several days ago after a routine examination.

Tiny Monaco launched a 10-month celebration of its 700th birthday Wednesday as aging Prince Rainier III urged his son, Albert, to find a bride. In interviews on the eve of the festivities, Rainier, 73, said the 38-year-old Albert had more work to do before he could succeed him and perhaps would have to marry first. Rainier hinted that marriage and a family were part of the preparations for a hand-over, which he said could "perhaps, probably" take place before 2000.

It is easy to mock Monaco. It is, after all: --A tiny sovereign state, anachronistically ruled by a powerful prince who has enough time on his hands to spend five days presiding over the jury at the International Festival of the Circus. --A sunlit and cliff-shaded beach resort whose princesses monopolize the covers of the glossiest French magazines. --A rich, crime-free small town whose wealth once derived from the best-known gambling casino in all Europe.

In this glamorous tax haven, money's playground by the sea, the idle rich are making room for the busy, bustling rich. Aristocrats still risk fortunes at the Casino's velvet-covered tables, but the 380-acre principality is catering to a new breed of wealth and power. It seeks the working rich who may spend a week in Monaco--not six months like the grand dukes of a century ago--to check on an industrial investment, watch the Grand Prix or attend a business convention.
