The identity of Monaco’s wealthiest resident may surprise you

One might think that Prince Albert and his wife Princess Charlene would hold the titles as the richest residents in Monaco, but it is another member of the Grimaldi family who reportedly boasts that honour.

Tatiana Santo Domingo, who is married to Princess Caroline’s son Andrea Casiraghi, is one of Europe’s wealthiest individuals with a reported net worth of $2.3 billion.

The heiress was named as Monaco’s richest resident by Business Insider, which used Forbes’ rich list to determine the wealthiest individuals in each European state. Tatiana – whose husband's uncle, Prince Albert, was estimated to be worth around $1 billion in 2011 – inherited a large portion of her fortune from her late grandfather, Colombian businessman Julio Mario Santo Domingo .

Princess Caroline’s daughter-in-law is also co-founder of ethical clothing line Muzungu Sisters, which she launched in 2011.

The fashionista married Andrea, who is fourth in line to the Monegasque throne, back in 2013. The couple was wed on the grounds of the Prince's Palace with Tatiana wearing a hippie chic bridal gown by Missoni.
