While the focus these days may be on Prince Albert of Monaco's young twins, his eldest illegitimate daughter has made headlines with her first public interview with Harpers Bazaar.
Jazmin Grace Grimaldi resembled her grandmother Princess Grace in her cover interview, as she discussed her relationship with her royal father and getting to know her two younger half-siblings.
Grimaldi, daughter of Albert and American Tamara Rotolo, did not connect with her father until she was 11-years-old when she visited Monaco for the first time. In fact, the 57-year-old prince did not publicly acknowledge his daughter until she was 14.
"I wanted that moment to connect with my father, to get to know him, and to have him get to know me," she said of her first trip to Monaco. "Not having had that figure around, I missed that. It's wonderful that it happened when it did, and we've been enjoying a great relationship ever since."
Grimaldi told the magazine that now she's looking forward to spending time with her half-siblings. "I can't wait to be a sister to them and watch them grow up," she said. "They have these beautiful, big blue eyes—and they are both already so well behaved!"
She also said she is developing a relationship with her father's other illegitimate child, her 11-year-old half-brother Alexandre Coste.
Grimaldi revealed that her visits to Monaco are normal, family affairs. "Except with heavy scheduling," she added.
