I would agree that Jazmin looks more and more like her mother, but I think she is prettier now than when she was a child. I also think she looks better in straight hair.

I also agree that Jazmin is no classier than Charlotte.

Here's a few thoughts of my own;

IMO all this is still related to her fundraising efforts regarding JazminFund and Fiji. A magazine like Palm Springs Life must have a far longer lead time and therefore probably did this months ago or maybe waited until the designer's dress could be used since all this happened at the same time as the local fashion week in Palm Springs.

I've read all the recent posts here and on another board and I'm shocked at some of the obvious ill-spirited comments being made (but not unexpected since so many are always made about members of this family) -- just pure jealousy and rants with a self-serving agenda. When are we going to let these people be who they are; PA, Charlene, his sisters, their children and and PA's children. There is nothing that will convince me PA doesn't have a handle on his daughter and playing a role in influencing her actions. I'm sure he expects from her what we expect from our children -- the best. If she's raising funds for Fiji or raising awareness of the struggles in Fiji -- who are we to judge and critique her efforts. I commend her -- BRAVO!

As for her appearance at the fashion show -- any of us who ever watched a runway show on TV will notice the designer makes the event his/her own; fashion, music, lights, right down to the makeup. I noticed all the girls wore the same hair and makeup in the very same style as Jazmin -- please, this is a normal kid who when in Rome does as the Romans. Frankly, I wish I had the connections and relationships to open the doors for my children as PA can open for his daughter and son.

Her European articles/covers, her Charity, her fashion event -- these are not things a normal parent can arrange -- these are doors that have been opened by her father and to think her mother or others have that power or access is just silly IMO. And why has PA not sued over any of this -- he has certainly never hesitated to sue in the past -- over the smallest intrusion. IMO he's sitting back and maybe testing the water, seeing what she can and cannot handle -- so far, IMO he must be proud.

As for the article, it's what I would expect of a wide-eyed 15 year old to write. As for the passports -- maybe she has both USA and MC, maybe just 2 USA -- again who cares and what does it matter. Her father is head of state for MC and she was conceived in MC -- according to everything I have read she would automatically be granted a MC passport. PA himself said she was entitled to visit and even live and attend school in MC. It seems she's traveled a great deal and maybe this was on her father's dime over the years -- so what, this is the way it should have been. He said himself -- a secret until she was of age.

Again, until we see them both on Oprah's couch -- we'll never know the truth.

One last thought... I would guess that if PA appeared on Larry King and clearly stated that he supported his daughter in private since day one, per his father was advised to wait until she turned 18 to be acknowledged because she wanted to remain in CA, that he supported of her charity and her efforts -- if he said he was proud of both children... there would still be some who would race back to the net to post rants about how it's still a conspiracy and he didn't mean what he said.

We are going on a year since her acknowledgment -- I say Bravo! to all the parties involved. I feel they have conducted themselves accordingly and the way they wish -- not according to our rules or how we wish. There's ben no bad press -- just our bad opinions.

I just ran a current Google search and I see she is not living in Palm Springs any longer and is also active in a Southern California organization regarding teens and drinking and driving and the Physics Club at her high school. I don't know of my children or any of my children's friends who are active in any community group or charity -- none.

More BRAVO! for her and PA -- he must be doing something right!

I disagree. Anyone with new "celebrity" status in the US will be found by media. It would not be hard for someone in the Rotolo camp to arrange these things. I think a lot of us are questioning her because she is benefitting from her status instead of leading the quiet life that I'm sure Albert would prefer. I really don't think he is pleased with her publicity--with her charity, yes. But with her attention-seeking, perhaps not.

How do you know she has not been sought after by much of the US press?
Maybe because she is from US they excpect her to do more or say more for them than the Euro press -- and she refuses.

How do you know her father disapproves? He could very easily stop her if he wished and certainly could stop the magazines by suing -- he's done neither.

Jazmin Grace Grimaldi

Having reviewed the photos of Jazmin I saw that she has the physical body structure of a young Grace Kelly. Her complexion like that of Grace Kelly is flawlessly outsanding. Girls take after the father's side genetically.She has a forehead I have only seen in portraits of the Renaissance and on the actress Merle Oberon,very noble.I commend her [and both her parents] as a youngster whether modelling, or doing her foundation work for Fidji. Like it or not she is famous and her father is HSH Prince Albert of Monaco and her mother Tamara. After God we hold our parents in the dignity of our hearts as they do us..I see no discrepancy in this at all.
In all fashion shows runway looks are made up in extremis.Hence the extreme make up.But that applies to theatre and ballet as well.
I hope to see more of the charming Jazmin Grace Grimaldi in the future and I hope for her as I do for all youngsters that she will lead and inspire by example.

I agree, although I think its due to the influence of her mother more than anything.

well we can see she is now sporting braces-of the metal kind. that, in my opinion shows she is not vain. vain in the sense that she can afford to wear the clear ones, yet she is not.

A very astute observation birdman (is this a homage to Lancaster or Stroud?) -- Bravo to you!

Perhaps it's all that make up that they got her wear. But that girl is very good at posing, surely better than her cousin is. Look at Charlotte's bad posture that has been discussed many a time in the forums.

In one of the photos posted with the article she looks very natural, as if she were a born model, which reminded a lot of her grandmother. Whilst Charlotte looks like the girl next door, apart from her beautiful face, but there's plenty of beautiful faces around...JMO, of course!

I agree Tamara could learn a few things from Nicole at this point. I think a lot of it is TR thought up until Nicole went public that her daughter was Albert's only child and was the rightful air to the Throne.

Jazmin Grace Rotolo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia In case anyone is looks at the Wikipedia site it has bad information again. Because anyone can change it it's why I've said you have to be careful reading it and quoting from it.

Which part of the article is incorrect, LadyMacAlpine?

While they did meet at a tennis tournament she was a waitress. This is the second time information has been incorrect on things related to Albert and children but it is about Daniel.

I do have to wonder if Jazmin is being hounded by the paparazzi as stated why haven't we seen many photo's? According to my press sources they don't have an interest in her. In fact this is the exact words used by one.
Quote:
and they don't think jazmin is attractive with any appeal
The interest is in the gorgeous Charlotte and her brothers.

Also this is from Palm Springs Life.
Quote:
Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, daughter of Monaco’s Prince Albert and a resident of Palm Desert, writes exclusively for Palm Springs Life about her first humanitarian trip.
But it says she attends a private Catholic school, JSerra, in San Juan Capistrano, California. That's at least a two hour drive with good traffic. Unless she is traveling 4 hours a day for school she isn't living in Palm Springs so why does the article say she is a resident there???? Something is wrong some where.

People call her a princess reallly she is not a princess well maybe a untitled princess I might say.Being born from a famous royal dynasty that is one of Europe's oldest.All this publicity of this 14 yr.old who is an American nineth grader at a local high school in California.Her family seems to putting her out as a potienal princess or something when they did not worry more important things like payings bills and how they are going to get back in life.This girl will only known as a illegitmate child of Prince Albert II of Monaco and nothing else.

Thank you for clarifying LadyMacAlpine.
I wasn't sure which part of the article you were refering to and everything seemed fine at first glance.

The mother sounds like she's a publicity hound, ready for every cent she can make off of her child in this celeb-crazed society. Jazmin is suddenly declared Albert's daughter, and WOOSH! she's off to Fiji to promote her "fund". Sounds like someone is trying too hard to look like a Grimaldi/Casiraghi(i.e. Andrea and AMADE in the Philllippines).

Next thing you hear is that Jazmin is starring in her own reality series.

It's also now been corrected to read waitress which she was.

Albert has no power in the US as far as I know. Just as you think he doesn't disapprove, I believe he does. We can't validate our opinions so it's pointless to ask such questions. Jazmin and Tamara have been sought and have sought the press attention. They seem intent on making her into a Princess, which she is not.

I really don't think you can compare the two. Jazmin is trying to be something that Charlotte already is. Charlotte was surrounded by the comfort of her lineage and the circumstances of her birth are not untoward. Jazmin is struggling to overcome the circumstances of her birth. I think Jazmin is a child and can't really be compared to a young woman. They're both very different and unique in their own way.

I can't help but get the impression that the picture you paint of Jazmin doesn't fit with what I have seen and read in the media, nor with her actions.
Radically opposite. JMO.
