Monaco’s royals join small-screen stars to walk the red carpet at glitzy Monte-Carlo Festival 

Marie, who has called both France and Monaco home, met Louis while both of them were students.

Like him, she attended Skema, a French business school where she earned a Bachelor of Business Administration.

Later on, she studied marketing at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, North Carolina, while Louis obtained a bachelor’s degree in sports management.

Marie, a proud aunt, has two older brothers. She currently works as a banqueting and convention coordinator at the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo, a palace in Monaco.

Before beginning her current position two years ago, Marie held a variety of jobs as a student.

She has in the past distributed flyers and magazines on the street for an advertising agency in Nice, worked as a supermarket cashier for the French discount store chain Leader Price, sold movie tickets and snacks for the French movie theater chain Les Cinemas Gaumont et Pathe, and was employed as a salesperson for France’s state-owned railway company, the SNCF.

While at Western Carolina University, Marie was a French tutor. She was also an active member of the student union board at Skema. 

In December 2016, Marie shared a touching tribute to her late father on Instagram, posting a photo of herself in his arms as a child and writing in the caption: ‘You will be missed. I love you Daddy.’ 

Marie is now an avid traveler who has journeyed around Europe, in the US, and within France.

The travel snaps she has shared on social media include views of Strasbourg and Nice, France, Barcelona, Spain, San Antonio and Dallas, Texas, and Hollywood.

In her spare time, Marie also enjoys watching soccer, sharing her fiance’s love for the sport. Together, they were photographed cheering on the AS Monaco during the UEFA Champions League semi final first leg match in May last year.
