Andrea Casiraghi and Tatiana Santo Domingo: How the childhood sweethearts found a lasting love
22 MARCH 2013
A vivacious young student meets a handsome royal and an enduring love gradually blossoms away from the cameras. The story of Andrea Casiraghi and Tatiana Santo Domingo, who have just had a baby, has much in common with another fascinating aristocratic romance.
Like Prince William, the 28-year-old son of Monaco's Princess Caroline and her late husband Stefano Casiraghi has been the focus of attention all his life.
Losing his father at the heartbreakingly early age of six, he too learned that wealth and status don't always protect you from suffering.

In Tatiana, Andrea found his own Kate Middleton. The daughter of a Colombian billionaire and his beautiful Brazilian wife, she is at ease in his world, but understands its burdens too.
She gives him companionship, discretion and unwavering loyalty – coincidentally the Latin beauty is also a history of art graduate. And his family are as in love with the 29-year-old heiress as he is.
Caroline, in particular, has seen how 'Tats', as she's known to friends, has helped her son mature into a responsible young man. Through her steadying influence, he has shed his playboy image, turning his attention to royal duty instead.
Soon the relationship that has been the making of the Monaco golden boy will culminate in a wedding. Read this special HELLO!Online report to find out more about the new parents.
