There's been a flurry of A-listers from the realms of film, music and fashion at the 77th annual Cannes Film Festival – but have you spotted these royal appearances?

Monaco's Charlotte Casiraghi, who is the niece of Prince Albert, was among the royals to lead the red carpet in a bridal white Chanel gown with sparkling accessories.

The model and equestrian's appearance comes amid her rumoured romance with writer French writer, Nicolas Mathieu following her split from her husband, Dimitri Rassam, after four years of marriage.

French film producer Dimitri, who shares son Balthazar with Charlotte, made his own separate appearances at the film festival on the French Riviera.

While some of the royal guests were seen on the iconic red carpet, others made low-key appearances at fashionable after parties. Oh to be a fly on the wall!

The fashionable Monaco royal's appearance at the Cannes Film Festival is no surprise given her style credentials. Charlotte has been regular on the red carpet in recent years, usually clad in a beautiful Chanel creation, given her role as an ambassador. Her late grandmother and former Hollywood star Grace Kelly famously attended Cannes just days before meeting her future husband, Prince Rainier of Monaco, at the event in 1955.
