Jazmin Grace Grimaldi

Jazmin Grace Grimaldi was born on March 4, 1992 in Palm Springs, California, United States[1]. She is the elder child of Albert II, Prince of Monaco and Tamara Rotolo, and a granddaughter of the late Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace.

On June 1 2006, Prince Albert II admitted that he did in fact father Jazmin with Tamara Rotolo. The Prince noted that he had wanted to protect her identity until she was an adult. Albert has another child, Alexandre Coste who is Jazmin's half brother.

Statements

  1. Under Monaco law, illegitimate descendants cannot be in line for the throne. However, Prince Albert, as reigning monarch, could change the 2002 Constitution and name her as heir to the throne.
  2. It's been erroneously reported in some media that Jazmin will not use the surname Grimaldi, though this was quickly corrected in subsequent interviews by Prince Albert, whereby the articles and the Prince himself referred to his daughter as Jazmin Grace Grimaldi.
  3. In his Paris Match (29 June - 5 July) interview which Prince Albert requested from the editor, Prince Albert said: "What matters to me is they are certain of my affection for them". The Prince also added Jazmin is welcome to study and live in Monaco.

Life today

In February 2006, the French magazine Voici published photographs of mother and daughter during a visit to Monaco. The Prince has hired the services of Gavin de Becker to protect her.

Jazmin Grace is described to the press as a “mature, sweet and intelligent" girl. At 14 years of age, she graduated from St. fransis of asisi in Palm Desert, California, where she has been an honor student.[2] She also is a good kid with i deep kind heart that all her friends and family love deaply

In November 2006, Jazmin Grace visited eight islands in Fiji[3]on a humanitarian mission to help bring the local children assistance in education, medicine, and community development. One of her stops was at a school for the disabled and she donated 30,000 prenatal vitamins to the Savusavu Hospital on the island of Vanua Levu. She has also established a humanitarian fund for the region called Jazmin Fund. More information can be found at Jazmin Fund.

Trivia

  • The series of novels The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot, and in particular the main character Mia Thermopolis, have a story which remarkably shares some common features with the one of Jazmin Grace Grimaldi. The reader can also note the use of the Renaldi (compare with Grimaldi) surname for Mia in the movie version and really Grimaldi proper in the novel (Amelia Mignonette (Mia) Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo).
  • Jazmin Grace's grandmother, Grace Kelly, owned a home in the Movie Colony area of Palm Springs before becoming a princess.
  • Illegitimate children are nothing new in Monaco nor would it be new for one of Albert's children to inherit his throne — in every generation for the last 100 years a Grimaldi has had an acknowledged illegitimate child; Louis, Antoinette, Stéphanie, Albert II. Of these, six have gained rights through legitimation, including the great grandmother of Jazmin, Princess Charlotte who obtained her rights, and then, by declaration, ceded them to Rainier, May 30, 1944.
