Jazmin Grace, la fille d’Albert de Monaco, révèle ses talents de chanteuse… et ce n’est

Jazmin Grace Grimaldi (born 4 March 1992) is the daughter of Albert II, Prince of Monaco and Tamara Rotolo, and the elder of the Prince's two known illegitimate children.

Prince Albert II publicly confirmed Jazmin's paternity on 1 June 2006, noting that he had wanted to protect her identity until she was an adult. Jazmin is the older half-sister of Alexandre Coste Grimaldi and of Prince Albert's two legitimate children, Princess Gabriella, Countess of Carladès, and Jacques, Hereditary Prince of Monaco.

Out-of-wedlock children are not in the line of succession to the Monegasque throne according to Article 10 of the Constitution of Monaco, which specifies that only "direct and legitimate" descendants of Monaco's monarch (or of the monarch's siblings) may inherit the throne. Because her mother's divorce proceedings were not finalized by the time of Jazmin's birth, Jazmin is legally the product of adultery and cannot be legitimated through the subsequent marriage of her biological parents.

On 26 October 2006, Albert II gave an interview to US television personality Larry King. Albert said his children are not in line for the Monegasque throne but that they would be taken care of financially. They are also heirs to Prince Albert's personal fortune, estimated at more than one billion dollars.

    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 and Associates.

    Jazmin is described to the press as a “mature, sweet and intelligent" girl. At 14 years of age, she graduated from St. Margaret’s Episcopal School in Palm Desert, California, and entered JSerra High School in Orange County, California.

    In November 2006, Jazmin visited eight islands in Fiji 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.

    In June 2010, Jazmin graduated JSerra Catholic High School where she was an honor student and a soloist in a school choir that performed with singer Barry Manilow.

    Upon graduation, she received The JSerra Senior Faculty Award and the Fine Arts Award. She was also selected to be a lifetime member of The California Scholarship Federation, and has been since she was a sophomore, entitling her to the distinction of Sealbearer.

    She attended Fordham University.

    On 22 October 2012, Jazmin attended the 30th Anniversary of the Princess Grace Awards in New York City with her father and stepmother, Princess Charlene. In an article published in Hello magazine about the event, the Prince is described as protective of his daughter, who is said to admire and respect her father.

    Jazmin's first published interview, in 2015 with Harpers Bazaar was conducted at the Princely Palace in Monte Carlo. Jazmin talked about her grandmother Princess Grace, her father, her siblings and life in Monaco


    Illegitimate children are nothing new in the Princely family of Monaco — in every generation for the last 100 years a Grimaldi has had an acknowledged illegitimate child. Some of these have obtained succession rights through legitimization or adoption, including Princess Charlotte, Duchess of Valentinois, an illegitimate child who was adopted by her own father, and who then ceded her succession rights to her son Rainier on May 30, 1944. Prince Rainier III made obtaining succession rights in this manner impossible for the illegitimate children of his son Albert by a 2002 modification to the constitution which limited, henceforth, the succession to direct, legitimate issue.
