"Not having had that figure around, I missed that. It's wonderful that it happened when it did, and we've been enjoying a great relationship ever since."

While neither Jazmin nor Alexandre, 19, are in the line of Succession to the Monegasque throne, Albert confirmed in 2006 that both would be taken care of financially. They are also heirs to the Prince’s personal fortune, reportedly more than $1billion.
