The figure of Carlota Casiraghi, who on the weekend gave the impression of having a prominent abdomen underneath the loose-fitting clothing she wore at the Monte Carlo horse jumping competition, has sparked widespread speculation about whether the daughter of Monaco's Princess Caroline is pregnant.

Casiraghi, who will turn 27 next month, showed up at the principality's traditional equestrian contest along with her mother and her uncle, Prince Albert II, though without her boyfriend, actor Gad Elmaleh.

The daughter of the late Stefano Casiraghi wore an elegant electric blue dress with high heels at the award ceremony on Sunday.

Still recovering from horseriding accident, Carlota Casiraghi did not participate in the competition, as she had done on other occasions, but she was the center of attention for the photographers present at the event.

Although no official source has confirmed the latest apparent pregnancy in the Garimaldi family, the pregnancy rumor has been the focus of attention in the French celebrity press, including the publications Voici and Premiere. EFE
