Prince Albert’s eldest child, Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, has been in Monaco to prepare for the ladies’ car rally, the Rallye Aicha des Gazelles du Maroc, which she is undertaking with cousin Pauline Ducruet, the daughter of Princess Stephanie. The women-only 9-day off-road rally started from the Promenade des Anglais on Saturday, March 17.
The 26-year-old also helped Prince Albert celebrate his 60th birthday on March 14.
Jazmin is raising money for her own foundation, the Jazmin Fund, which she established in 2006 with the aim to build art-focused community centres in Fiji and help locals achieve a healthier lifestyle. Money generated by the rally helps to finance teams of doctors providing medical care in the remoter regions of southern Morocco.
Prior to setting out on the rally, Prince Albert’s daughter took the opportunity to promote her sponsors, including the skincare company the New York Dermatology Group.
