Pauline Ducruet is believed to have a new love interest. Princess Stephanie of Monaco's eldest daughter, who was previously in a relationship with former footballer Paul-Noël Ettori, is now thought to be dating Maxime Giaccardi.

While pictures of Maxime appeared on Pauline's Instagram account in late 2013, a recent increase of photos showing the pair looking loved-up together has led to speculation that they are a couple.

One image, which 20-year-old Pauline posted in honour of Maxime's 21st birthday, is captioned with the French term of affection 'mon chou chérie'.

"Bon anniversaire mon chou chérie! #looooooov! @maximegiaccardi," wrote Pauline, followed by a series of romantic emoticons including a heart and a couple holding hands.

Charlotte Casiraghi's cousin previously dated Paul-Noël Ettori and the pair went public with their romance in April 2013.

The couple first met in 2011, when Pauline was 17 and Paul-Noël was 21, and later moved to Paris where the young royal had moved to pursue a career in fashion while her beau worked to establish himself as a model and an actor after retiring from football.

Pauline's relocation from Monaco to the City of Love has been a success and the stylish royal has been studying design at the Istituto Marangoni and is a regular on the front row at Paris Fashion Week.
