Her father may be Prince Albert of Monaco, but Jazmin Grace Grimaldi lives a life away from the glitz and glamour of being a true royal.
Jazmin Grace, a budding actress and singer, doesn’t even have claim to the crown due to her being Prince Albert’s illegitimate child, but that doesn’t stop her from one day inheriting her father’s billion-dollar fortune.
Here are five fast facts about the royal, not-so-royal Jazmin Grace.
* Born to Tamara Jean Rotolo, Jazmin Grace, 29, is Prince Albert’s firstborn. However, he decided to keep her a secret from the world until June 1, 2006, claiming that he wanted to protect her identity until she was an adult. Rotolo and Albert’s relationship was brief, so she too wanted to raise Jazmin Grace in private back in the US.
* She takes after her grandmother Grace Kelly, who was also an actress and a royal by marriage. She made a red-carpet appearance for the premiere of The Immigrant with Marion Cotillard and Joaquin Phoenix and will soon be featured in the biopic The Chelsea Cowboy with Poppy Delevingne and Alex Pettyfer.
*Jazmin Grace has a good heart with a passion for philanthropy. Aside from working with the UN World Food Programme, she founded her own organisation called The Jazmin Fund, which aims to help children and women in remote villages in Fiji.
* The A-lister may wear many hats, but she makes sure to fulfil her role as an elder sister to her half-siblings, too. In August, the 29-year-old joined the 18th birthday bash of her half-brother, Alexandre Grimaldi-Coste. She was also present at the baptism of Princess Charlene’s twins, Princess Gabriella, Countess of Carladès, and Jacques, Monaco’s heir apparent, in 2015.
* The actress is in a long-term relationship with musician Ian Mellencamp. The two make music together and seem to have the perfect relationship, dressing up for Halloween parties and travelling the globe together.
