Episode 2: Inside Monaco: Playground of the Rich

Summary

The programme goes behind the scenes as Casino de Monte Carlo holds an exclusive event with a Prohibition theme aimed at high rollers as it seeks to attract new clients, while at the palace Prince Albert II hosts the new French ambassador. In Monaco's only tattoo parlour, Princess Stephanie's daughter Camille Gottlieb is getting a discreet new inking and sharing what life is like for her in the principality, and four billion euros' worth of motor vessels enter the harbour for the annual yacht show.

Review

Camille Gottlieb, daughter of Princess Stephanie of Monaco, is a regular visitor to a tattoo parlour in the Principality. Such a place is a bit out there for somewhere so conservative, but Camille is cheerfully iconoclastic and her favourite television series comes as a surprise: “I love Geordie Shore!”

Elsewhere, we visit the shooting range of Monaco’s security service, the Carabiniers du Prince, whose job is to guard Prince Albert and the rest of the royal family.

We also accompany the police as they investigate the alleged theft of a takeaway pizza and spend time with a charming solicitor who is embroiled in a peculiar crime, a dispute over a handbag. It is a whole other world.
