Princess Caroline of Monaco and her children, Andrea, Charlotte and Pierre Casiraghi  were in Fino Mornasco, Italy on October 29, 2009, to attend the funeral of Laura Sabatini Casiraghi.

Laura was the wife of Daniele Casiraghi, who is the younger brother of Stefano, Princess Caroline’s late second husband and the father of the Casiraghi trio. Laura was thus an aunt to Charlotte, Andrea and Pierre. She was also godmother to Pierre.

Despite their public profiles, Princess Caroline and her children have maintained close ties with this side of their family. The photo below is of Andrea, with his grandmother Fernanda Casiraghi on his arm.
