Why is this a Royal Destination?

The Monte Carlo Casino was founded by Charles III of Monaco.


He created (together with a business partner) a company called:

Société des Bains de Mer de Monaco.

This is a public company in which the Monaco Government and the 
ruling (Grimaldi) family have majority interest.
