Although she holds no title or royal status, she is a granddaughter of Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace of Monaco, a niece of Prince Albert II, but she is not currently in line of succession to the Monegasque throne due to the fact that her parents never married. Under the Constitution of Monaco, illegitimate descendants cannot be in line for the throne.
Illegitimate children are nothing new in Monaco — in every generation for the last 100 years a Grimaldi has had an acknowledged an illegitimate child. Some of these have obtained succession rights through legitimation or adoption, including Princess Charlotte, an illegitimate child who was adopted by her own father, and who then ceded her succession rights to her son Rainier, May 30, 1944. Prince Rainier III made obtaining succession rights in this manner impossible for the illegitimate children of children by adopting a new constitution in 2002, which limited the succession to direct, legitimate issue.
