Camilla Crociani was born in Rome but when she was five years old, the family moved to Geneva. Later on, the Princess completed her studies at Marymount High School in New York and attended New York University. Therefore, she always mingled in international circles and lived among people of different backgrounds, religions and beliefs, becoming open-minded and tolerant to the needs of others. In 1998, she married H.R.H. Prince Charles of Bourbon Two Sicilies, Duke of Castro. From then on, she definitely got involved in charitable activities. They live between Monaco, Paris and Rome, with their two daughters:
Princess Maria Carolina Duchess of Calabria and Palermo
Princess Maria Chiara Duchess of Capri
She is very active in the family Business, involving financial activities, catered to investments in the fields of Defence, Homeland Security, Space and Transport worldwide.
