In his lifetime, his mother Grace Kelly has indeed chose one of his friends, the singer and actor Franck Sinatra, to watch over his offspring. Both co-starred in the musical High Societydirected by Charles Walters and released in 1956. Following this collaboration, the one who was nicknamed “Scarface” in his childhood because of the large number of scars present on his face, became a close friend of the wife of Prince Rainier III, as well as of the Grimaldi family. This is why the choice of sponsorship naturally fell on him.

During the summer of 1984, Stéphanie of Monaco indeed closer to Anthony Delon, with whom she apparently flirted, on a Monegasque beach.
