Prince Albert (born: 14 March 1958) is the only son and second child of Prince Rainier III of Monaco and his wife, the former American film star Grace Kelly. Prince Albert is the current Hereditary Prince of Monaco and Marquis des Baux.

Though there is a history of princes of Monaco abdicating, and Prince Rainier has spoken of doing so, an abdication is not expected to take place unless and until Prince Albert has married. His elder sister, Princess Caroline of Monaco, Princess of Hanover, presently is second in line to the throne.

He competed in the Bobsled at the 1988, 1992, 1994, 1998, and 2002 Winter Olympics.
