Charlotte Marie Pomeline Casiraghi is the second child of Caroline, Princess of Hanover, Hereditary Princess of Monaco, and the late Stefano Casiraghi, an Italian industrialist. She is fourth in line to the throne of Monaco. Her maternal grandmother was Grace Kelly. She is named after her maternal great-grandmother, Princess Charlotte, Duchess of Valentinois.

Charlotte and her two brothers, Andrea and Pierre, were born in the Mediterranean Principality of Monaco, ruled by their maternal grandfather, Prince Rainier III.

From 2001 through 2004, as a member of Marcel Rozier's Team Marionnaud, Casiraghi participated in a number of Junior and Amateur class show jumping competitions. She was trained successively by both of Rozier's sons, first Philippe and then Thierry Rozier.

She has French, Italian, Monaguesque, Mexican, English, German, Irish and Swedish ancestry.

In 2010, she assumed the role of Honorary President of the Jumping International de Monte-Carlo, a role previously fulfilled by her mother. Since 1997, by the appointment of her grandfather, Casiraghi has been patroness of the Public Safety Division, Maritime and Airport Police of Monaco. In 2009, she joined her uncle for the presentation of the trophies for the Monaco Grand Prix, a task usually undertaken by her mother. Every year since 2006, she has attended the Rose Ball (Bal de la Rose) to help raise funds for the Princess Grace Foundation.

On October 5, 2009, Casiraghi was a VIP guest at the Stella McCartney show in Paris. Sitting on the front row with Dasha Zhukova, Sir Paul McCartney, Gwyneth Paltrow, she told Women's Wear Daily about Ever Manifesto. Copies of the magazine's first issue were left on the seats before the show. "We will announce on the website soon," she said.

Casiraghi contributed to the October 2009 issue of 20, the free newspaper of Alex Dellal's gallery, 20 Hoxton Square Projects.
