inside italian princess melusine ruspoli very lavish lifestyle

As the daughter of a French former model and the late eccentric aristocrat Prince Alessandro ‘Dado’ Ruspoli, it is perhaps of little surprise that Princess Melusine Ruspoli has a penchant for the finer things in life.

Named by society bible Tatler as the European It Girl of the summer, the socialite spends her time jet-setting to glamorous locations and utilising the stunning grounds of her family’s 16th-century castle, Castello Ruspoli, just outside of Rome.

And Princess Melusine, 25, appears to delight in sharing her lavish lifestyle with her 17,600 followers on Instagram.

But despite her feed coming complete with an enviable wardrobe and plentiful getaways to St Moritz and Egypt – the royal has previously revealed she ‘never uses’ her princess title, preferring to ‘be like everyone else’.

Melusine was born in Paris to French model Theresa Patricia Genest and the late Prince Alessandro Ruspoli, an eccentric aristocrat whose family titles reportedly date back more than 1,000 years.

Her ladies’ man father and notorious partygoer, who was also an actor and had a bit part in The Godfather: Part III (1990), was married three times before passing aged 80 in January 11 2005.

His friendship circle boasted the likes of American novelist Truman Capote, French actress and singer Brigitte Bardot and French poet Jean Cocteau.

The model’s family is rich in history with fifteen popes apparently related to the Marescotti-Ruspoli line.

But despite her family’s prestigious past, she has previously revealed how she ‘never uses’ her royal title.

Speaking to American fashion magazine W in 2014, she said: ‘Of course, I have some advantages—but I’m like everyone else.’   

Melusine was raised in the French capital and her family’s castle, located in the province of Viterbo, in a small town named Vignanello, near Rome.

The Castle is usually open to visitors and offers an extensive range of activities, such as guided tours, events, weddings, private luncheons and dinners and business conferences. 

The luxurious garden, which according to the property’s website is considered one of the most important in Italy, was created in 1611.  

Melusine, who has modelled for Dolce & Gabbana and Salvatore Ferragamo, as well as having interned in the latter’s advertising department, celebrated her 18th birthday with a moon-themed ball at the castle. 

She can often be seen sitting front row at Chanel, Alberta Ferretti and Fendi’s fashion walks and shared a photograph at Tod’s in February, featuring Princess Diana’s niece Lady Kitty Spencer.

Speaking about her time in Ferragamo PR’s department, Melusine told Teen Vogue in 2014: ‘Being in front of the camera, you feel like you’re really a part of something.

‘But you don’t always realize all the important work that goes into everything behind the scenes. That’s why it was so interesting to do both.’

Aged 19, she made her debut at Paris’s famed Bal des Debutantes dressed in Chanel Haute Couture.

police smash car windows to save two dogs left inside for over two hours as temperatures soared

Two dogs were reportedly left in a car for more than two hours as temperatures soared at a Cornwall beach town today.

Devon and Cornwall Police officers were called and smashed the windows to rescue the animals, which had been left in the locked vehicle near Looe beach, despite the heatwave.

One local man, who posted about the incident on social media, said the dogs had been left in the car ‘for over two hours’ and no-one had returned to the car to check on them.

Kieran Mccrash Mclelland said the police were already at the scene when he noticed the dogs in the car.

By Sunday afternoon, his social media post had received more than 460 shares. 

Temperatures at Looe reached 23°C (73.4°F) on Sunday afternoon.

The incident happened as animal welfare groups urged pet owners to take greater care during Britain’s heatwave.

According to the RSPCA, owners should ‘never leave animals in hot cars, conservatories, outbuildings or caravans, even if it’s just for a short while.’

The organisation added: ‘Temperatures can quickly rise to 47°C (117°F) in these environments, which can be deadly. 

‘You can also keep your pets safe by using a pet-safe sun cream on exposed parts of your pets’ skin, and of course, by providing plenty of access to shade and fresh water. 

‘It’s also worth checking pets regularly for flystrike. You can also help your pets cool down by putting ice cubes in their water bowl or by providing damp towels for them to lie on.’

The beach at St Ives in Cornwall attracted heavy crowds of sunseekers as temperatures soared across the UK on Sunday

The holiday to Greece comes after Brooklyn proposed to Nicola Peltz, 25, in front of her family. 

What’s more, Nicola hinted she and fiancé Brooklyn may have married in secret as she shared a cryptic snap of a gold ring on his finger.

The image, shared to her Instagram Stories on Friday, showed the couple clutching a label, with Brooklyn sporting a gold band on his left hand.

The simple piece of jewellery is traditional of a man’s wedding ring, with the design complemented by a single diamond. 

The budding photographer’s distinctive tattoos could be seen on his hand, including ‘1974’ which is the birth year of his mother Victoria Beckham, while the number ‘7’ represents dad David’s football shirt number he wore when playing for Manchester United. 

The American actress didn’t leave a caption on her intriguing image, leaving fans to guess whether they had tied the knot. 

MailOnline contacted representatives of Nicola and Brooklyn for comment at the time.

Brooklyn recently shared intimate photographs from his marriage proposal earlier this month, during which he presented Nicola with a £350,000 engagement ring.

Alongside the gallery of photographs, David and Victoria Beckham’s eldest son wrote: ‘Can’t imagine a life without you baby, you make me feel so special and make me laugh all the time. I will always take care of you and will always have your back.’  

Bowled over by her husband to be’s public declaration, Nicola commented: ‘i’m so in love with you my hearts going to EXPLODE’ (sic).

Though the couple have hinted they’ve already tied the knot, there are still preparations underway for a huge wedding celebration, with Nicola’s billionaire father Nelson Peltz expected to be paying for the wedding with Brooklyn’s parents also wanting to ‘contribute’. 

Brooklyn is said to have told pals that the ceremony will involve marrying under a chuppah (wedding canopy) and signing a ketubah (wedding contract) as both Brooklyn’s great grandfather and Nicola’s billionaire father are Jewish.

A source told the Mirror: ‘Nicola was raised in a Jewish household and while her mother Claudia isn’t Jewish, her father Nelson is devout. They raised their children to uphold traditional Jewish values…

Action time: Romeo wasn't scared to fall off and try again

‘When they ­started talking about their future, Brooklyn agreed to a Jewish wedding. While it won’t be orthodox, or super religious, it will likely contain ­traditional elements.’

Brooklyn and Nicola are thought to be planning to splash £4million on two different ceremonies to mark their marriage in 2021. 

The nuptials are said to be taking place in both the UK and Florida, with the couple allegedly expected to sign pre-nups at the behest of Nicola’s father, Nelson, who is said to be worth £1.34 billion.

The source added: ‘They’re not sure if they’ll have a rabbi conduct both ceremonies, but Brooklyn has already told Nicola he’ll let her take the reins – joking how he’s already under the thumb.’  

It is thought that Brooklyn’s footballing father David is also enthusiastic about the prospect and hopes to recite one of the Hebrew blessings at the ceremony. 

Sources have claimed Brooklyn’s little sister, Harper, nine, will be ‘chief bridesmaid’, while his brothers Romeo and Cruz will act as his ‘ushers’.

A mountain recovery team carried out a dramatic rescue after a 60-year-old climber plunged 40ft down a crag.
