Charlotte Casiraghi and her comedian boyfriend Gad Elmaleh enjoyed a day out shopping on the Italian island of Capri, where they seemed to be preparing for the birth of their first child.
Princess Caroline of Monaco’s eldest daughter looked radiant as she stepped out in a loose stripy summer frock that showed off her baby bump. While the Palace has yet to confirm Charlotte’s pregnancy, it is thought that she is in her second trimester.
Charlotte hunted around the designer boutiques, including Russo Capri, famed for its stylish adult clothes, and was most likely stocking up on adorable baby clothes or fashionable maternity wear.

The 27-year-old expectant mother was accompanied by Gad, 42, who dutifully carried her shopping bags and looked relaxed in a navy polo top and dark trousers.
After their shopping spree, Charlotte and Gad were joined by their friends for an alfresco lunch, before returning to their yacht to carry on with their cruise along the Amalfi coast.
The stunning Monegasque royal, who turned 27 on Saturday, has much to celebrate. She looks head over heels in love with her dashing French comedy star and is also riding high in her professional life as the face of Gucci.
Charlotte first sparked rumours of her pregnancy when she stepped out with a fuller figure at a show jumping event in Monaco in June. She sported an ivory-coloured jacket which seemed to show the beginnings of a baby bump.
Royal watchers were surprised when Charlotte separated from her boyfriend of four years, Alex Dellal, in 2012. She met Gad soon after and the couple have been dating for a year and a half.
Since then their relationship has gone from strength to strength and Gad is said to have been welcomed and accepted by the Monegasque royal family.
