Monaco's royal family has welcomed its newest member: a baby boy born to the daughter of Princess Caroline.

The palace announced yesterday that Charlotte Casiraghi gave birth to Raphael a day earlier. The baby's father is French actor and comedian Gad Elmaleh.

Members of Monaco's royal family are followed like celebrities in France. The wedding two years ago between ruling Prince Albert and South African Charlene Wittstock had the same red-carpet glamour of Prince William's marriage to Kate Middleton.

But the palace has kept the birth announcement low-key.
