Prince Albert of Monaco’s love child Jazmin Grimaldi, 28, says she’s ‘grateful to be alive’

Jazmin Grimaldi, the daughter of Prince Albert II of Monaco, has revealed she ‘finally feels more like herself’ and is ‘grateful to be alive’ following her positive COVID-19 test – four months after her father was struck down with the virus.

The singer and actress, 28, of California, is the royal’s daughter from his short relationship with American real estate agent Tamara Rotolo. 

She took to Instagram on Tuesday to say she was feeling on the mend three weeks after first experiencing coronavirus signs – but was still experiencing some lingering symptoms.

‘I am so thankful that I am starting to finally feel like myself today after almost three weeks since I first felt Covid symptoms,’ she wrote. 

‘I am grateful to be alive and healthy at this present moment. We take so much for granted including our health, our bodies, our precious miraculous temples!’

Jazmin added: ‘I do in fact have Covid symptoms that continue to linger and pop up on and off again. Ex: headaches, ear aches, fatigue and diarrhea. 

‘I am just trying to do all I can to gain my strength back and build my immunity, patience is key but I am happily on the road to recovery.

‘I’m here standing strong as one of the many survivors of this vicious mysterious virus but I am also an advocate.’

‘I want to be a reminder to each of you that this virus can affect you, a family member or someone you love,’ she penned. 

‘Please don’t be careless even if you personally seem to not have symptoms or think you have immunity. Think of the others beyond yourself that are helpless.

‘Please continue to wear your mask, social distance, sanitize and quarantine! I’m in the quarantine club and it’s cool! Be safe! I’m counting on us conquering this pandemic together!’

The update comes after Jazmin (pictured) shared an emotional video to Instagram last week announcing her positive diagnosis and experience with the coronavirus so far

‘This wasn’t a shock to me per se, because for over this past week I have had COVID-19 symptoms. I have been really cautious. I have been social distancing. 

‘I only go out to get the groceries and I always wear a mask and I always sanitise. I hope I can help at least one person today with this personal testament because over this past week I’ve fallen really ill.’

Prince Albert, who publicly confirmed Jazmin’s paternity in 2006, became the first head of state to test positive for COVID-19 in March.

After isolating away from his wife Princess Charlene and their 5-year-old twins Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, they were reunited in April following the royal’s full recovery.
