Stefano Casiraghi died on October 3, 1990. It was a terrible accident when he was trying to defend his world title in offshore racing and his boat capsized due to heavy seas. Stefano was rescued by rescue workers, but died in Monaco hospital. Charlotte Casiraghi, the daughter of Stefano and Caroline von Hannover, was just 4 years old at the time. Now she spoke for the first time about the accident.

Along with mom Caroline and brothers Andrea and Pierre, Charlotte moved into a country house away from the public interest and spying eyes of Monaco. Charlotte is now speaking for the first time with the French culture magazine “Les Inrockuptibles” about that time. She reports: “I was shot through with very strong emotions”. Because of the tragic death of her father, nothing was a matter of course for her at the time. “I asked myself: Why me? Why am I in this body? Why do I exist?” she continues.

The road to coping with grief was not easy. It took the 35-year-old a long time to get over the loss. While her brother Pierre, like his father, discovered his passion for sailing, Charlotte found solace in other ways: “The books helped me”. However, the trauma she experienced as a child is still present in her life today. “For a child who loses a parent very young, at a time when the memory is not yet solid, there remains a great trauma that cannot be downplayed.”

Charlotte Casiraghi rocked a navy blue halterneck dress at the Cannes Film Festival. The Monegasque wore diamond jewelry and subtle make-up.

Princess Charlène and Prince Albert II presented themselves at the Monaco Grand Prix. Holding hands, they strolled through the pit lanes before the Formula 1 race and met some racing drivers.

How stable is Charlene of Monaco and how is her marriage to Prince Albert II? In an interview, she now breaks her silence and clears up some rumors.
