Charlotte Casiraghi at the Global Champion Tour 2011
Sailing over the jumps at a competition in Cannes, Princess Caroline's daughter Charlotte Casiraghi proves that she's more than just the sum of her royal pedigree.
Watched by her brother Pierre Casiraghi and his girlfriend of four years Beatrice Borromeo, the Monegasque royal competed at the Global Champions event.

Charlotte, 25, has been a regular in the amateur section of the showjumping fixture, which is sponsored by Greek shipping heiress Athina Onassis de Miranda, since 2009.
This week, she was on her beloved mount Carryduff.
Her passion for the sport has led to her role as the face of Gucci's equestrian clothes range, followed by a plum assignment to model their main line too.
"It just seemed natural – they support me as a rider, and Frida and I collaborated together," said Charlotte referring to her association with Gucci chief designer Frida Giannini.
