Pauline Ducruet is the second child of Princess Stephanie of Monaco and Daniel Ducruet. She created the fashion brand Alter in 2018 to “embrace and inspire the freedom of self”.

Her cousin, Alexandre Grimaldi, is Prince Albert’s oldest son, born out of wedlock. He recently featured on the front page of Tatler magazine, and said in the interview, “I relate to elegance. I love Louis Vuitton, Dior, Givenchy. The big French houses. There’s a cultural connection which I admire.”

Alexandre also revealed that he is very close to his father’s family in Monaco.

The Métropole Shopping Center is hosting the Alter Racing Club pop-up until 31st March.
