Charlotte Casiraghi and Gad Elmaleh inseparable at equestrian event

If there was any doubt about the state of their relationship, these pictures should end it once and for all. Charlotte Casiraghi and Gad Elmaleh looked very much in love during a joint outing on Friday. The couple – parents to baby Raphaël – were spotted with their arms intertwined as they stood together in the VIP grandstand at the Longines Athina Horse Show.

Keen equestrian Charlotte, 28, was in St Tropez for the competition and as she waited to be called for her next jump, was seen cuddling up to her long-term love.

Earlier on Friday, Charlotte and comedian Gad went for a walk through the Mediterranean town with their 17-month-old son. While Gad pushed Raphaël's buggy, Charlotte carried their little boy in her arms.

Friday's photographs will go a long way to reassuring fans that the couple remain united, following wide-spread speculation that they had split. Just days earlier it was reported that the Monaco royal had moved out of the French apartment she shared with 44-year-old Gad, having also attended the Cannes Film Festival on her own last month.

With their romance seemingly on track, royal watchers will also be hoping to see Gad join Charlotte and the rest of the Grimaldi family for Prince Albert's coronation celebrations this summer.

Last month, HELLO!'s sister publication HOLA! reported that Gad had managed to reconcile his comedy tour with his partner's royal duties for the special event. Gad is scheduled to perform in Monaco on 10 July – reportedly to ensure he is in the principality the night before celebrations begin to mark Albert's decade-long reign on Saturday 11 July.

Gad recently spoke out about his happy family life. "Things are very different now," he told Swiss publication 20 Minutes. "When you start out in this business, what motivates you is your colleagues, the fame, the tours, the big stages [but] now what interests me most is the contact with the public when I am on stage.

"The fact that the rest doesn't interest me leaves me more time to spend with my little one," he added. "It's clear that now I would rather go back home at night to be reunited with my family, instead of going out to dinner after the show. That is very nice."
