I think that might be the reason. Also, Rainier wanted to see Andrea on the throne, because he thought Albert would never marry.

Albert I put adoption in allowing Princess Charlotte to become Louis heir since he didn't have a legitimate one. Rainier took it out at about the same time Monaco was in the process of fixing there Constitution to meet with the standards of a union they were trying to become a member of. I'm drawing a blank on what it was actually called. Fan of Monaco or Bones may know. In order to belong to it they had to also include things on women's rights. The Treaty with France also acknowledged Monaco was an Independent State and wouldn't revert to French rule if the Grimaldi line died out and or had no legitimate heir.

Monaco is a Catholic State therefore has to follow guidelines on the Ruler one being legitimate born within a legal and blessed marriage by the Church. Caroline fought for years to get an annulment from Junot to legitimize the trio in the eyes of the Church even though in the eyes of the law she was legally married to Stefano. Stephanies children Louis and Pauline were not eligible to be in the line of succession until she married Daniel. Cammy is not. Alexandra is in the succession of two Thrones Monaco and Britain.

Monaco Succession Crisis of 1918 see quote below
Quote:
The solution was an unequal treaty between France and Monaco which formalized and rendered permanent the latter's position as a client state: Not only did it require Monaco to conduct its foreign relations in consultation with or through France, but it obliged the dynasty to obtain French authorization for marital alliances or changes in succession, and declared that should the throne become vacant Monaco would become an official protectorate under French jurisdiction — while retaining nominal independence.
The bold type is no longer true with the changes in 2002.

Treaty of 1861 and 1918

New Treaty 2002

Under Prince Rainier there was 20 heirs to the Throne until his death and Albert II was enthroned. Again no reason to leave adoption in the Constitution. It had nothing at all to do with either Alexandre or Jazmin.

I think the 2002 change was because PA still did not have an heir. Rather than becoming part of France they changed it so that PC could become ruler then Andrea if PA remained heirless. The clever Monagasques have become more valuable to France as an independent country than becoming part of France. They are a major employer of the French and promote many French products such as haute couture and tourism.

I was wondering: suppose Albert and Charlene have only daughters and no sons? Would a daughter be allowed to inherit the throne, or would it then go to Andrea Casiraghi?

The older daughter will inherit the throne.

Of course throne goes to the eldest daughter! To go to Andrea it has to pass through Caroline, who is also female. So the first female (daughter) has more rights than the sister!

What I was looking for when I said union was Council of Europe I hope you read it to understand the reasons for the changes. Monaco applied for membership October 15, 1998.

3. The Assembly welcomes the major constitutional and legislative changes implemented by Monaco in response to the recommendations of the eminent lawyers and rapporteurs. These are primarily the constitutional amendments adopted on 28 March 2002, concerning in particular the enlarged powers of the National Council (the parliament) in respect of initiating laws, amending legislation, deciding on budgetary matters and ratification of certain international instruments, as well as matters relating to the acquisition of Monegasque nationality and the enjoyment of civil rights.

VII. Relations with France and the problem of sovereignty
Wikipedia 2002 Changes
Quote:
Until 2002, the crown of Monaco could only pass to the direct descendants (including adopted children) of the reigning prince. This meant that Princess Antoinette was not in the line of succession and that Princesses Caroline and Stéphanie would lose their places in line at the moment of Prince Albert's succession. This created considerable concern that the throne might fall vacant should Prince Albert inherit the crown and then die without fathering (or adopting) a legitimate heir. In 2002, changes were made to the Constitution of Monaco which eliminated that concern.
Until 2002, the reigning Prince could adopt an heir who would succeed him if the Prince died without biological children. Prince Albert could thus have adopted one of his nephews, or even someone unrelated, and made the person his heir. That option no longer exists. Now, if Prince Albert II fails to marry and father a legitimate heir, the crown will automatically pass to one of his sisters or one of their children—also regardless of any illegitimate children he has fathered.
They revised the Treaty with France and made other changes to the Constitution removing the adoption clause because there was no longer any need.

The fact that Alexandra is "dynaste", does this mean that she is monegasque (art 10, only a citizen can be the sovereign of Monaco) ? Is she german?

Will Charlene now produce an heir for Albert?- probably.

If she wasn't able to would Andrea want to be sovereign?- probably not.

However I think the Casiraghi trio do like the limelight. They could have been like Stephanie's kids and hardly attended anything, but they do attend events that they needn't, so the paparazzi intrusion is partly of their own doing.

She probably has dual citizenship.

Maybe the princily family are not submitted to the same laws as the normal people but according to the constitution, we are monegasque if our dad is a monegasque (that's why Daniel and Stephano became Monegasque when they married the sisters). Or if we are born from a monegasque mother with an unknown father. And I'm not even sure if Monaco accepts the dual citizenship. But I guess due to her rank, things go differently for her.

Well she is a dynast so we know she at least has Monagasque citzenship. Her father is German but she was born in Austria so I guess she possibly has multiple options open to her should the need arise.

True, but if his citizenship is a result for his descent from Electress Sophia does not apply to Alexandra since the citizenship act reforms.

Because EA's claim to British citizenship was based on his descent from the Electress Sophia of Hanover. The citizenship act was amended a long time ago and ended that ability to claim citizenship based on descent from Sophia. Alexandra may fall into a grey area since her father may claim British citizenship but now with free movement within the EU it doesnt really matter much any more.

Rules of the EU state that one cannot have 2 citizenship to two countries that are part of the union. Plus, Monaco's dual citizenship rules. And she's in line for the Monaco throne, so likley, she only has a Monaco citizenship. Monaco is considered part of the EU b/c of its ties with France.

Not sure where to put this but:

Does anyone think that Monaco will follow the rest of the Royal Families ie. If the Princess of Monaco has a daughter first she will inherit the Monaco throne instead of any younger brother? Which will now be the case for William and Catherine Duke and Duchess of Cambridge who if they have a daughter first she will be Queen? As will also happen in Sweden.
