The reactions were not long in coming. Camille Gottlieb, the half-sister of Louis Ducruet, is already stamping with impatience. “I’m going to be the best tatas,” commented the youngest of Princess Stéphanie of Monaco, and daughter of Jean-Raymond Gottlieb, former bodyguard. “Congratulations pretty family”, greeted on his side Jazmin Grimaldithe daughter of Prince Albert II and American Tamara Jean Rotolo.
More discreet and less worldly than his cousins Andrea and Pierre Casiraghi, Louis Ducruet met his sweetheart in a nightclub in Cannes in 2011. In an interview with Point of view the young man said:[Marie] was with friends, I looked at her, I found her very beautiful. She, she didn’t notice me that night. And then, the fall arrived. At the time, I was president of the student council at my university, Skema Business School, in Sophia-Antipolis. And, one day, I saw her arrive…” Some time later, love at first sight turns out to be mutual. But the idyll does not start right away. “As we are both shy it took us a while, we were looking for each other, the whole school knew I wanted to be with him and he with me, but it took six months before that one of us decides to take the first step”, remembers in November 2018 the Niçoise, still in the columns of Point of view.
After six years of love, in February 2018, Louis Ducruet finally proposed to Marie Chevallier, during a stay in Vietnam. The ceremony takes place a year later, on July 27, 2019, in the cathedral of Monaco, in front of 200 guests. The youngest of Princess Stéphanie thus intended to pay tribute to her grandfather, Prince Rainier III, whom he admires so much. The last members of the princely family to unite in this building were none other than Rainier III of Monaco and Grace Kelly, in April 1956.
