Inside Princess Charlene and Prince Albert of Monaco’s family life

With their royal twins Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques.

For Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco, their children are the centre of their world.

The royal couple, who tied the knot in 2011, welcomed their twins – Princess Gabriella, Countess of Carladès, and Jacques, Hereditary Prince of Monaco – on December 10, 2014.

And since then, both Albert and Charlene have spoken at length about the joys of parenthood; in 2019, Charlene told Point de Vue that while being a mum can be “exhausting” she overall finds it “stimulating in many areas.”

She also revealed that Albert – despite being the reigning sovereign of Monaco – takes the kids to school every single day.

“He spends a lot of time with Jacques and Gabriella and takes care of them as often as he can,” Charlene said of her husband.
