Grace Kelly's Granddaughter Welcomes a Royal Baby
Charlotte Casiraghi welcomed a baby boy, Raphael, yesterday, giving Monaco a new royal baby. This Summer, news broke that Charlotte was expecting a baby with her 42-year-old boyfriend, popular French Moroccan-born comedian Gad Elmaleh. Charlotte herself is not a new addition to the pretty young royal set. The 27-year-old member of the Monaco royal family, who counts Grace Kelly as her grandmother, Princess Caroline of Hanover as her mother, and the reigning Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco as her uncle and aunt, has long been known for her good taste and looks.
Born to Monaco's Princess Caroline and her second husband, the late Italian businessman Stefano Casiraghi, Charlotte is fourth in line to Monaco's throne. She's the middle daughter between two brothers, and Charlotte's parents married when her mother was already three months pregnant with her eldest brother, Andrea. Her father died when she was only 4 in a boat-race accident, and following his death, her mother moved the family to France before later remarrying and having another daughter, 14-year-old Princess Alexandra.
