It's about as pretty as a picture gets. Prince Albert II of Monaco and his family have shared a set of Christmas photos to celebrate the festive season and they're a portrait perfect. From photos of twins, Jacques and Gabriella, enjoying Christmas to a family portrait that includes an image of Princess Grace in the background, these are festive photos to remember.
The photos were shared on the Palais Princier Facebook page and include an image of Albert II looking about as proud as a dad can as he watches his twins get into the Christmas spirit.
Jacques poses for a photo holding a star on his head - this is Christmas, they're toddlers. what do you expect?
Gabriella, as big sisters are wont, takes it all much more seriously getting down to some serious art as she takes part in the family photo shoot.
The twins have already had a busy build up to Christmas, enjoying a trip to the festive market in Monaco as well as a birthday party and then a chance to join mum and dad as they handed out presents to the children of Monaco earlier this month. But it's the image of them, under the watchful gaze of a portrait of Princess Grace, that features on the royal Christmas card of Monaco this year. Three generations, one royal family and Jacques and Gabriella. the Christmas stars.
