For that is the current and somewhat plain title of the rotund and once-powerful ex- king of Egypt, who recently became another of the 4.002 subjects of Prince Rainier. But don't just get the idea Flirouk is just an ordinary citizen of the smallest principality in the world. His privileges include a diplomatic passport, which nieans he can go anywhere, cross any frontier, in complete liberty. And unlllce other Monaco cit- Izerts—Including her highness. Princess Grace—who are forbidden entry to Monaco's gaming casinos, Farouk has the right to try to break the bank of Monte Carlo all he pleases. The only other subject so favored is the Maharanee of Baroda, who became a citizen of Monaco two years ago. Like Farouk, she has plenty of pocket money to risk on the roulette wheels. When Farouk is stacking chips on the green baize, standing behind him is a statuesque Neopolitan blonde who has been a favored member of his entourage since 1954. Irma Cappece de Minutolo was 19 when Farouk first spotted her during a competition for the title of "MLss Latium." She lost the contest, but won a permanent role in Farouk's royal suite — permanent, that is, to the extent that she is the only woman who has remained at his side for more than four years. "Like Scheherazade" "She has brought him the appeasement and calm which has always been absent from his tempestuous life," says one follower of the Farouk circuit. "She is always there, like Scheherazade, when he wants to talk or go on the night club rounds. She selects his recordings, keeps him up on current gossip, and sings him Neopolitan love songs." Periodically there have been rumors of marriage, but thus far Farouk has not made Irma a part of his family life. The education of his children—three daughters by his WITHOUT CHILDREN Of all the U. S. presidents, Washington, Madison, Jackson, Polk, Buchanan and Harding had no children. first wife and a 7-year-old son, Ahmed Foudad, whose mother was ex -Qucen Narriman — is supervised by his private secretary, Lucien Galas. Galas also keeps track of Farouk's considerable fortune, "Seven Languages" Farouk's love of nightlife has not waned, but the incredible man whose tiny eyes twinkle behind dark glas.ses is also a man of letters who speaks seven languages. He sometimes spends days and nights in his library studying political economy. And he likes to sit for hours in cafes, chain-smoking and watching the passing pageant. In his new villa at Monte Carlo, Farouk also will have a new way to occupy his time. The villa will include a gymnasium and a Turkish bath. Roulette is not enough exercise, it seems, even for a de-1 Constantinople and the Pha- scendant of the grand pacha oflroahs of ancient Egypt, As The usually camera-shy ex-king allowed this picture to be taken at a night club in 19M, shortly after he had met the Neopolitan beauty, Irma Cappecede Minutolo. plain Monsieur Farouk of Mo-1warned him that 250 pounds is naco. four doctors have too much.
