Alexandra lives with her mother and is being raised as a member of the Monegasque royal family. She is also a competitive figure skater, and represented Monaco in figure skating at the 2015 European Youth Olympic Festival, held in Austria. [7]

Alexandra is the only one of Princess Caroline's four children who bears any style or title. She is formally styled as "Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra of Hanover",[4][5] though the kingdom of Hanover no longer exists. She is ninth in the line of succession to the Monegasque throne.[4] Through her father, she is in the line of succession to the British throne.[6]

She has half-siblings from each of her parents' previous marriages. From Prince Ernst's previous marriage, she has two half-brothers, Hereditary Prince Ernst August and Prince Christian of Hanover.[5] From Princess Caroline's previous marriage, she has two half-brothers, Andrea and Pierre Casiraghi, and one half-sister, Charlotte Casiraghi.

She was named after her godmothers. [1]
