Charlotte Casiraghi is the daughter of Princess Caroline and the granddaughter of Princess Grace and Prince Rainier Grimaldi of Monaco. Her father was Caroline's second husband, the Italian industrialist Stefano Casiraghi, who died in a speed-boating accident in 1990. By the time she reached her late teens, Charlotte Casiraghi had become popular with paparazzi and society reporters, who found her stylish good looks to be reminiscent of her mother and grandmother. She is an avid horsewoman who has competed in equestrian events across Europe. The fashion house Gucci began featuring her as a "face of Gucci" in advertisements in 2012.
Charlotte Casiraghi has two brothers, Andrea (b. 1984) and Pierre (b. 1987); her half-sister, Alexandra, was born in 1999 to Caroline and her new husband Prince Ernst of Hanover… Charlotte Casiraghi has not been given the title of princess (an attempt by her mother to give her daughter a more normal life) but she is technically in line to inherit the throne of Monaco, behind her uncle Prince Albert, her mother, and her older brother Andrea. That situation will change if Albert has children.
