Prince Rainer et famille had been more-or-less regular guests at the Hotel Sacher when visiting Vienna. Therefore, we can reasonably surmise that at least one member might have had to satisfy a developed craving for this renowned cake at home in the Monaco Palace and its environs.
Is the gold-leaf-gilded version served at the Louis XV
restaurant in the Hotel de Paris (one of Europe's last really grand hotels) or, perhaps, at the Hotel Hermitage? Neither of these sites would seem entirely plausible, but maybe they'd prepare the dessert upon request.
