Not always true, sometimes the insurance for something like that can be so expensive not even those who may be rich and titled can or want to pay it. |
I watched a story years ago about a widow of a member of the Ford family. Her house was broken into and thieve stole her case with all of her and her late husbands jewels...none of it insured..the premiums were too opressive.

: In the eighties and nineties Infanta Maria
