Even in the New World where secular democracies reign; we still have a healthy fascination with royalty. That intrigue seemed to peak in the days of Princess Diana, whose tragic death sent ripples of grief all the way across the Atlantic.
Now the world has turned itâ€™s admiring eye toward Monaco, where the major announcement of Prince Albertâ€™s engagement to Charlene Wittstock has swept the news cycle. So far no woman has actually married the Prince, but he has been known to consort with some hoity-toity women. According to CBS News, the list includes the likes of Naomi Campbell, Gwyneth Paltrow, Brooke Shields and Claudia Schiffer.
There is also a side of the Prince that has drawn considerable attention; his two children. The web is ablaze with searches for his daughter, Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, also misspelled Jasmine Grimaldi, who actually has an American connection. The young lady was not even officially recognized as Prince Albertâ€™s offspring until 2007, when the news shocked the world.
So who is she? Jazmin was born in California in March of 1992. Her mother is a real estate agent named Tamara Rotolo, who is currently 49 years old. Iâ€™m guessing she lives a pretty posh lifestyle being that her daddy is rolling in the dough. According to reports, he has been providing her material support for several years. She even attended a respected private school not far from her motherâ€™s gated community in Orange County California. She reportedly graduated with honors.
