BBC Two commissions Inside Monaco and The Countess And The Russian Billionaire
Inside Monaco is filmed over a season of grand events that Monaco is famous for, such as the Grand Prix weekend, Red Cross Ball and the international yacht show. It will shine a light on this glitzy, glamorous and extremely wealthy corner of the Mediterranean.
Home to more millionaires than any other nation, the series will examine the legacy Prince Albert (pictured below) inherited from his parents Prince Rainier and Princess Grace, and what life is like for a modern-day Head of State. We will see the huge amount of work that goes on behind the scenes to make this jet-set destination relevant to today’s generation of the rich and famous.
The three-part series from Spun Gold Television and Whisper will be an extraordinary and fascinating glimpse into life in Monaco from the challenges facing the Prince to those of his residents. The population of 40,000 is drawn from 120 different nationalities and we get to know some larger-than-life characters, discover what brought them to this place and what life is really like in one of the most desirable places in the world.
