Prince Albert of Monaco was able to count on the presence of his entire family on the occasion of the 80th Monaco F1 Grand Prix. Passionate about motor racing, he was accompanied by his wife, Princess Charlene, but also by his nieces and nephews: Pierre, Andrea and Charlotte Casiraghi. We also saw Louis Ducruet and his wife, Marie. Above all, Albert II of Monaco received a special guest for the gala dinner that followed the event, this Sunday, May 28. Indeed, his eldest daughter Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, born from his union with Tamara Rotolo, made a remarkable appearance on the photocall of the Salle des Etoiles of Sporting Monte-Carlo.

Out of sight
The 31-year-old appeared very chic in a two-tone dress, black and white, topped with a voluminous collar. She also wore a high bun and a diamond necklace. The granddaughter and heiress of Grace Kelly presented herself on the arm of her companion, guitarist Ian Mellencamp. No doubt she kissed her father, who was at the same party, even though no photos of them together were captured. As reported by Paris Match, "the sovereign ensures that the reunion with his daughter is out of sight".

An attitude that seems to fully accept Jazmin, who claims at each interview his admiration for his family. The one who lived for a long time hidden was finally recognized by her father in 2006. In 2015, she opened up in an issue of Harper's Bazaar about her first meeting with her father in 2003: "I wanted it to be an opportunity to get to know him, to get to know him and to allow him to get to know me. Not having had this father figure, I missed it. It's wonderful that it happened at any time, and we've had a great relationship ever since."
The young woman seems close to her siblings, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, born in 2014, and the other son born out of wedlock of Prince Albert, is close to Prince Albert's twins, Alexandre Grimaldi. Raised by her mother, Jazmin Grace Grimaldi lives in the United States, and was simply passing through the Rock.
