Monaco royal Charlotte Casiraghi calls off engagement to Dimitri Rassam after welcoming son

2019 is already bringing major life changes for Charlotte Casiraghi of Monaco. HOLA! Spain can confirm that the 32-year-old daughter of Princess Caroline has called off her engagement to The Little Prince film producer Dimitri Rassam. Sources close to the couple revealed that they have parted ways just two months after welcoming a baby son together on October 23. It was a second child for both halves, with Charlotte also mom to four-year-old Raphaël Elmaleh from her previous relationship with Gad Elmaleh and Dimitri father to seven-year-old Darya who he shares with ex Masha Novoselov.

The last official word in regards to the couple was a much happier one. The palace released a statement on behalf of Princess Caroline and Dimitri's mother Carole Bouquet, the French actress who famously played a Bond girl in For Your Eyes Only. It read: "Her Royal Highness The Princess of Hanover and Madame Carole Bouquet are delighted to announce the birth of their grandson, who was born on 23 October 2018. Mother and baby are doing well."

The couple had reportedly planned to marry in June of 2018, but decided to postpone their nuptials until after the baby's birth. They were set to have a wedding in Monaco followed by a party on the Italian island of Pantelleria, where Dimitri's mother Carole owns a stunning villa set in a vineyard.

Charlotte and Dimitri were first romantically linked back in 2017. Since then, the pair have brought their love around the world, venturing to New York, Italy and Jamaica, among other excursions. They confirmed their relationship at the annual Rose Ball in Monaco, when talk of Charlotte's pregnancy was abuzz. She managed to conceal her baby bump in a black Yves Saint Laurent gown, which featured an oversized fur stole that hid her top half. Charlotte also debuted a dazzling diamond ring on her left hand, leaving royal watchers to speculate that she was engaged.
