Princess Caroline Louise Marguerite was "officially registered as heiress presumptive" to Monaco today "over her noisy protests," reports United Press.

The infant princess was born two days ago and is the first child of Prince Rainier III and the former Grace Kelly.

Princess Grace has received "congratulatory messages from two other royal mothers,  Queen Juliana of the Netherlands and Queen Elizabeth II.

The new mother did not take part in today's official ceremonies.  While she rested in a nearby bedroom,  her husband, Prince Rainier "officially certified the infant before a Judge and three witnesses.   The baby's name was "inscribed in the archives of the Grimaldis who have ruled Monaco since 1297.

The infant princess will become the ruler of Monaco one day unless her mother gives birth to a son, who would become the heir apparent.

Princess Caroline "could not have cared less.  Judge Portainer "reported that she howled and chewed her fists all through the ceremony."
