Look Who's Walking

We saw him take a few steps on the celebrations for his first birthday but Prince Jacques of Monaco is really hitting his stride now. As he accompanied his parents to a rugby tournament, the heir to the throne of Monaco looked more than confident at walking out as he trotted happily holding on to Princess Charlene's hand. And Monaco's leading lady may just have won the prize for proudest looking mum of the year while he did it.

Prince Jacques of Monaco takes some big steps forward as he heads to the rugby with his mum

Jacques, who looks rather like mum, was with Charlene and Albert at the Saint Devote rugby tournament where all the contestants are under the age of twelve. Ten teams from nine different countries took part in the event which is organised by the Monaco Rugby Federation and the Princess Charlene Foundation.

And it looks like future competitors might have a big fan cheering from the stands as Prince Jacques seemed totally enthralled by the whole thing. His sister, Princess Gabriella, stayed at home. 

The happy prince - Jacques of Monaco clearly loved his day out at the rugby

Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella were born on December 10th 2014 at the Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco, the first children of Princess Charlene and Prince Albert II. Jacques, although several minutes younger than his sister, is heir to the throne. And as he showed this weekend, he's striding into the future with confidence.
