Odd Spot ! Morocco and Grace Kelly?

While Morocco is still recovering from the Throne Day celebrations, we thought that HM King Mohammed VI would be amused to know that he has a rival - well, at least according to the folk of Goodhue County, Minnesota. The County's number one news site ran an article that lacked a little accuracy

"Up until now, the only two things I knew about Morocco were that Grace Kelly became a real live princess when she married the prince of Morocco (Rainier) ..." Red Wing Republican Eagle

Now, if you don't see the problem, then we suggest you move to Goodhue. Goodhue County is a county located in the U.S. state of Minnesota. As of 2000, the population was 44,127. Its county seat is Red Wing.
