Brad’s royal love

New Idea - - News -

More than 12 months af­ter his shock split from An­gelina Jolie, Brad Pitt has fi­nally found love again – with Monaco roy­alty! Mul­ti­ple sources re­veal that the A-list star and Char­lotte Casir­aghi – daugh­ter of Princess Caro­line, and grand­daugh­ter of the late Grace Kelly – have been qui­etly dat­ing for more than a month af­ter meet­ing through mu­tual friends. The pair took their love pub­lic last week, both at­tend­ing a Los An­ge­les County Mu­seum of Art event – with on­look­ers telling New Idea they were ‘in­sep­a­ra­ble’ and Brad was ‘be­sot­ted’ with his new princess.

‘No-one could be­lieve it when we saw them to­gether,’ an on­looker tells. ‘There have been ru­mours cir­cu­lat­ing for weeks that Brad has moved on with a new woman, but no-one was ready to see him hand-in-hand with roy­alty from Monaco.

‘They ar­rived sep­a­rately and re­fused to be pho­tographed to­gether all night – but there’s no deny­ing that they’re a cou­ple. They kept on sneak­ing away for quiet mo­ments all night. At one stage, they were hold­ing hands and speak­ing very closely. Brad couldn’t stop smil­ing at her.

‘When they were away from the spot­light they were in­sep­a­ra­ble, and there’s no deny­ing that Brad is be­sot­ted. It’s nice to see him smil­ing again af­ter all the pain with Ange.’

It’s be­lieved Char­lotte and

Brad were in­tro­duced to one an­other by Brad’s Al­lied co-star and good friend Mar­ion Cotil­lard. Sources say the ac­tress and Char­lotte are very close friends, and af­ter see­ing Brad suf­fer through the last months of his mar­riage to Ange dur­ing film­ing for Al­lied and then their messy split, Mar­ion was keen for him to find hap­pi­ness.

‘Af­ter a re­spectable amount of time passed af­ter Brad and Ange’s split, Mar­ion sug­gested meet­ing Char­lotte,’ says a source. ‘Char­lotte split from her part­ner two years ago and has been shy about dat­ing again – but Brad re­ally charmed her.

‘Brad loves Monaco and has been there many times over the years. It’s no sur­prise that he’s so taken by Char­lotte – she’s beau­ti­ful, smart, is worldly and has the his­tory of one of the great­est royal dy­nas­ties be­hind her. She’s en­chant­ing to Brad.’

That 31-year-old Char­lotte has widely been re­garded as a ‘young An­gelina Jolie’ is sure to ap­peal to Brad, 53, as well. Fans have long made com­par­isons be­tween the two women, with one fol­lower com­ment­ing: ‘Char­lotte looks light years bet­ter than Ange did at that age.’

‘Brad would, of course, find Char­lotte very beau­ti­ful, and I’m sure it would get un­der Ange’s skin to hear that her ex’s new girl­friend has been de­scribed as a younger ver­sion of her,’ says the source. ‘That’s got to put a lit­tle bit of a smile on his face.’

At the be­gin­ning of the year Char­lotte was dat­ing film pro­ducer Dim­itri Ras­sam, but they’ve re­port­edly qui­etly split.

Friends say that aside from Brad and Char­lotte’s looks and fa­mous back­grounds, the pair also have ‘so much in com­mon’.

As well as a love of horse rid­ing, Char­lotte is mum to Raphael, three – her son with French ac­tor Gad El­maleh – which ap­peals to dad-of-six Brad.

‘They’ve both got kids and have been through high-pro­file splits, and Brad feels he can talk to Char­lotte about any­thing,’ says the source. ‘Es­pe­cially when it comes to his kids and his strug­gles to see them.

‘They’ve both been work­ing hard to keep their dates un­der wraps be­cause they don’t want to be in the spot­light while the ro­mance is in its early days, but Brad is re­ally hop­ing that Char­lotte and he take things to the next level.

‘Their night out at the LA County Mu­seum of Art event was them putting their toe in the wa­ter of go­ing pub­lic and see­ing how it felt, but Brad is keen to keep tak­ing baby steps.

‘How­ever, Brad’s feel­ing that Char­lotte is ex­actly the type of woman he wants in his life – calm, quiet, con­fi­dent and nur­tur­ing. He’s hop­ing she’s the next Mrs Pitt.’
