Exciting news for Princess Charlene and Prince Albert this morning. 

42 cannon shots have rung around Monaco, confirming the birth of the couple’s twin babies Gabriella and Jacques.

Prince Albert, 56, was by his 36-year-old wife’s side as they welcomed their first children together at Princess Grace Hospital.

While their daughter was first to arrive at 5:04pm local time, based on the country’s male inheritance laws, Jacques will be the future Prince of Monaco.

Prince Albert revealed earlier in the year that he and his wife of three years did not know the sex of their children, saying ‘It is one of the beautiful surprises that life offers us.’

While the twins are the Princess’s first children, her husband also has two other children from previous relationships- Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, 22, and Alexandre Coste,10- however as they were born out of wedlock, they are not eligible for succession in the House of Grimaldi.

Jacques and Gabriella are the first twins to be welcomed by the royal house, which dates back to the 13th Century.

We know you will join us in congratulating the royal couple at this very exciting time. 

What advice would you give the new parents? 

  • My advice would be to trust your mothers instinct.


  • Take as many photos as you can


  • Charlene was absolutely glowling recently – motherhood has done wonders for he especially with twins!


  • Those are just the cutest names =)


  • Hope Prince Albert gets to enjoy them growing up and now they have the male heir they need.


  • Love these baby names, although just realised they were born a month ago!


  • They have everything don’t they! *wink*


  • These babies are so cute, I hope they are happy!


  • what cute names that those babies have!


  • Congrats to them both, they will have lots to do and not doubled, definitely tripled just with the twins, as a mum of twins, it’s bloomin’ hard work but so well worth it when you have two sets of arms wrapped around you,smoothering you in kisses.


  • Very exciting congrates to them both


  • This is the strangest relationship. It seems like yesterday she was trying to flee from him and she was detained. Very weird.

    • Totally agree. Very strange circumstances, especially the being detained part.


  • The names are quite lovely.


  • Facts are more interesting than fiction in this case. It will be interesting to see what happens in the future. I hope the extended family remain happy and at place.


  • Congrats to Princess Charlens and Prince Albert
