Prince Albert poses with his illegitimate children
Attack against Princess Charlène
Excitement in the Monaco royal family: Albert II appears with his illegitimate children. Charlène shouldn’t like this look at all. Because Albert’s ex-lover took the photo.
This picture of Prince Albert II. (left) with his illegitimate children Jazmin Grace Grimaldi and Alexander Grimaldi-Coste is the subject of the interview.
This picture is causing a stir: Prince Albert II. (64) posed in New York with his two illegitimate children. The monarch of Monaco actually traveled to the United States with his wife Princess Charlène (44). The two were intimate at the Princess Grace Awards. There was no sign of the former professional swimmer at breakfast with Albert’s children Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, 30, and Alexander Grimaldi-Coste, 19.
But Albert’s ex-lover and Alexander’s mother Nicole Coste, 50, was there. She was the one who took the picture and posted it. “New York, paternal kings,” wrote the former flight attendant. Charlène in particular should be angry about this because the two women don’t get along at all.

A former lover made serious allegations against Charlene
She has made it more than clear in the past that Coste thinks little of the princess. She took shots at her former lover’s wife again and again in interviews. She claimed to the Daily Mail last December: “People in Monaco love me more than Charlene.” Regarding her poor health at the time, she also said that she didn’t care and that everything that happened to Charlene was karma.
One of the reasons for her anger is the way Charlene allegedly treated her son. In an interview with Paris Match, Coste made serious allegations: “During the period of Charlene and Albert’s engagement, I experienced things that disturbed and shocked me. For example, she changed my son’s room and took advantage of his father’s absence to put him in the staff room. As a mother, I cannot find the words to describe this behavior.”
Rare recording with illegitimate children
It is rare to see Albert with his illegitimate children. Both had to fight for their father’s recognition for a long time. Albert recognized Alexander as a son only when he was 2 years old. Jazmin Grace Grimaldi was eleven when she met her famous father. While Alexandre is the son of a prince with Nicole Coste, Grimaldi comes from a romance with waitress Tamara Rotolo (60).
With Princess Charlène, he has twins Gabriella and Jacques (both 7), who are the only of the prince’s children in the line of succession. Albert’s father Rainier III. (1923–2005) had the Monaco constitution amended in 2002 so that only legitimate children could ascend the throne of the principality. (bsn)
