Grimaldi is the daughter of Prince Albert of Monaco and Tamara Rotolo. Her parents met when the prince was in the Côte d’Azur in 1991 on vacation. Their time together was short and Grimaldi later met her father when she was 11 years old on a trip to Monaco.

I wanted that moment to connect with my father, to get to know him, and to have him get to know me,” she told Harper’s Bazaar. “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.”

The prince later formally acknowledged her after the media noticed in 2006. “I was 14, getting ready to go to high school, when it hit the media that my father had a daughter, and it was me,” said Grimaldi. “It’s a difficult time for any young adult, and it was an adjustment to have that attention. But I knew it was going to come someday.”
