The ultrarich should probably leave their valuables at home, or in Fort Knox, while traveling:
Burglars have made off with jewels and cash worth 11 million euros ($18.7 million) from the hotel room of a Saudi princess in Sardinia, Italian newspapers have reported, sparking a diplomatic incident.

According to the daily La Repubblica..."A military official from the Saudi embassy arrived in Sardinia and the Italian secret services and diplomats from both countries have been involved."
If there's a war I am, against my better judgment, betting on the Italians. By the way, if Italy's most recent big foreign adventure is any guide the Saudis might want to invest in some gas masks.

Although you only have their word for it that the goods were worth that much.
