On August 3, 1986, at Princess Grace Hospital, 29-year-old Princess Caroline of Monaco and her husband of almost three years, Stefano Casiraghi, welcomed their second child, Charlotte Marie Pomeline. Thought by many to be the love of Caroline's life, Stefano was handsome, charismatic and the son of a wealthy Italian industrialist.

Like her brothers, the mother's didn't receive a royal title, taking instead her father's last name. In making this decision, her mother presumably hoped Charlotte, named after her grandfather Prince Rainier's mother, would be able to lead a normal life, escaping the difficulties associated with being a princess.

Charlotte Casiraghi is a private citizen, but occasionally attends official functions in Monaco, such as a fundraising gala for AMADE Mondiale and Nelson Mandela's foundation in September 2007. In 2006, she made her debut appearance at Monaco's Rose Ball (in French: Bal de la Rose), which also raises money for the Princess Grace Foundation. Since childhood, she and her brothers have made regular appearances with their family on occasions such as the Monaco National Day and the Monaco Grand Prix. Princess Caroline has, however, tried to minimize publicity in spite of increasingly intensive coverage by the mass media, especially in Europe.
