Alexandre Grimaldi celebrated his 20th birthday on August 24. The young man is the son of Prince Albert of Monaco, the result of an eight-year relationship that he had with the Togolese stewardess Nicole Conte and that he recognized when the young man was four months old. An unprecedented performance by the Monegasque sovereign, although not the first, since he already had another extramarital daughter, Jazmin Grace, 31, the result of her fleeting affair with the American waitress Tamara Rotolo.
Two brothers who, despite the circumstances, have always been very close, despite being the children of different mothers, living miles apart and having different dynastic rights than the children born from the marriage of the prince with princess Charlene, the twins Jacques -who will inherit the throne- and Gabriella.
Thus, on the occasion of this anniversary, Jazmin wanted to wish her particular "prince" a happy birthday. He has done it through the Stories of his public Instagram profile, from where he has sent an affectionate message to his brother: “My prince turns 20 today. I love you more than words can express. Happy Birthday brother".
The artist thus congratulated her brother, accompanying her tender message with a few unpublished photos from her personal album, in which one can see the close relationship that both brothers have maintained over the years.
Two brothers who are very close, but also with their father, Alberto de Mónaco. The sovereign spends a lot of time with them, usually separately, although last November he was photographed with them together for the first time. A snapshot that he took Nicole Coste, Alexandre's mother, in a meeting that took place in New York City. "Paternally King", wrote the Togolese.
Alberto de Monaco and his son Alexandre get along especially well. The young man, whose godmother is none other than Estefanía de Mónaco, little sister of the Monegasque sovereign, even moved to the principality to live closer to his father, although he is studying at a university in the United Kingdom.
"They usually play sports together and also talk about politics," Conte revealed in an interview with Paris Match in 2021.
The young man himself admits to greatly admiring and respecting his father, with whom he would like to collaborate in the future in his charitable ventures. Alexandre is clear about what he wants his future to be, always keeping in mind what his role is. "My father is a prince and head of state, so I can't imagine walking down a catwalk."
