Monaco's Andrea Casiraghi is engaged.
The handsome 28-year-old royal - the son of Princess Caroline and her second husband, the late Stefano Casiraghi - recently proposed to Tatiana Santo Domingo, his girlfriend of seven years.
According to the Italian edition of Vogue the pair will marry in 2013.
Andrea is the second in line to the throne after his mother while Tatiana hails from one of Colombia's richest families.
The couple - who live together in Paris - met when they were both studying in the French capital and were introduced by Andrea's sister, Charlotte Casiraghi, who was a classmate of Tatiana at the time.
The news comes as Andrea's uncle Prince Albert is preparing to celebrate his first anniversary with wife Princess Charlene.
The couple tied the knot in a lavish ceremony last July and after one year of marriage, Albert is still smitten with his beautiful wife and impressed with how she has adjusted to life as a royal.
He told Brazilian magazine Epoca: 'We are really happy and feel like [the marriage] happened yesterday.
'I am very proud of what my wife has accomplished this past year, creating her foundation dedicated to children and sport, and being so involved in her new role in Monaco.
'She is fulfilling a difficult mission in a perfect way, and I thank her for that.'
